Hi All,

Am looking for the shop & user manuals for the 118 NE Petrol.

Would anyone be kind enough to upload scanned copies for my benefit?

Reason:
I am in the process of sorting out the mess left by previous electricians/mechanics under the bonnet of my NE and couldn't find a wiring diagram/detailed photographs to use as a reference.

Thanks in advance for your help !

This is the wiring diagram as scanned from my 118NE owner's manual. Hope this helps.

Dear Anirbhan,
The connector circled in the engine bay picture has been circled in yellow in the wiring schematic. The black wire carries +12V from the battery to the ignition switch. Just that the tapping is made at the input to self-starter solenoid rather than the battery terminal or through a Maxi-fuse box as seen today's cars.
The red wire carries the crank signal from the ignition switch to the self-start solenoid.

In search of perfectly tuning my vehicle, found out that the Idle Compensator Valve was leaking air. Upon close inspection, came to know that in between 27 years of ownership, some technician had tempered with the bi-metal strip; he had removed the heat sensitive strip of the two and now it was just a plain strip that can close or open the valve depending on how it is bent

I was sure of not finding a replacement of the part locally so searched the internet and luckily found it on ebay USA. When I received it, found that it is one size bigger then the current one as it fits a DATSUN 240Z. Rebored the center hole in the air cleaner box to fit the bigger valve stem and retrofitted a bigger pipe onto the smaller one with the orifice (NOTE: the original pipe has a 1.6mm orifice inside).

Finally, it is working perfectly now; the valve pops open at 65-70deg temperature.

Default AC blower cleanup

After prolonged demand from my better half to get the AC in our 118NE back to working order, took up the "Project AC" on Saturday.
The problem points were the system is an R12 compatible system and R12 is banned now and the air from the blower is so feeble that one can feel some air only from as close as 10cms from the vent.
So first thing to address was the fan as I was prepared to swap the compressor and allied parts with R134a compatible parts. Doubting the blower motor itself, powering the motor directly upon by-passing the 3 speed switch control didn't show up any difference at all. So obviously need to look into something deeper inside.
Removed the speedometer, opened up the dashboard, and finally reached the blower unit. It was funny and surprising to see that the air filter material in this blower was placed after the evaporator fins and not at the suction side. As soon as I removed the filter and switched On the blower a gush of wind filled the cabin till almost near the rear seat. I was totally happy and convinced that the blower part has no trouble.
Switching ON the compressor wasn't putting any load on the engine. Probably no gas or a shot compressor. I better leave it to an AC mechanic to further investigate.

Dear Ilango,

Is that a factory fitted AC or an aftermarket installation? If it is an afterthought, has the AC technician replaced the original blower with one that comes with AC kit?

It is factory fitted KK bhai. The blower looks like the National AC blower like in Amby or PP. Not sure though.

I got it photocopied from the original workshop manual from a gentleman who runs an automobile workshop here in Ahmedabad. It is quite bulky @ around 250 pages so making a softcopy is a project.
I have a PDF of the Haynes Workshop manual for Datsun 1200 which shares the engine and transmission with our 118NE. PM me your email address if you want me to send.
