    Default Help Needed Identifying This Tool Kit

    Hoping someone on the forum can match this Nissan Tool kit with the appropriate car! I have been through the forums regarding the various tools and kits available for the S30 but could not find any reference to an "assembled kit" available from Nissan. Also looked through my parts manual and microfiche I have for various other older Nissan and Datsun models but could not find any picture or reference to the kit I have posted in the pictures below. Can anyone shed some light on this?
    Kit looks to never have been used and contains the following:

    (1) Philips head screwdriver (stamped Nissan)
    (1) Slot head screwdriver (stamped Rabit)
    (1) feeler gauge - (stamped SD - contains a single feeler gauge marked .35mm)
    (1) Crescent wrench - 250mm (stamped Nissan Motor)
    (1) Pliers - (Stamped Nissan)
    (1) 5Pc Set wrenches - (Stamped SANKI)
    (1) Canvas bag - Measures about 6.5" x 13" (Stamped Nissan Motor)

    Thanks!
    Sam

    I'd suggest that this is something that was sold in the parts dept. and not ever associated with a specific vehicle.

    That's what I suspected. The fiche on all of the vehicles I researched only showed individual tools. No kits. I also took a look at the recomended spark plug gaps on the various Datsun/Nissan engines to determine if the .35mm was specific to any particular model. Then I realized that .35mm is way to small a gap for ANY engine. It's also to tight for points. Not sure what this feeler gauge could have been used for.

    Valve adjust? I don't remember the exact spec.

    Correction, the feeler gauge is actually .35 Inches not mm. Makes more sense as a spark plug gap now!

    Its the dizzy point gap feeler gauge. I know that's pretty old technology, but come on gang!

    I knew I was destined to be a Datsun mechanic when I discovered by thumbnail was 0.35 mm thick about a 100 years ago...

    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.

    Blue:
    Absolutely! I've had "wavemux" as a handle since 1998 and you are the ONLY person who has ever made the connection! wavemux was actually the name of a line of telecom equipment manufactured by Pirelli (same company that makes tires) back in the 90's.

    I remember Wavemux now...

    Remind me to add a spark plug gapping gauge to my tool roll.

    BTW- are those cheapie ROUND gap tools accurate? The ones with the increasing thickness...
