Nissan parts catalogue in electronic format

Buy it, sell it, negotiate, haggle, drag it out from under the workbench or behind the garage and make it someone else's problem!

Nissan parts catalogue in electronic format

#1

Post by asavage » 13 years ago

A while back I "purchased" a CD off eBay that purported to contain the Nissan Parts Catalogue 1978-2002, including the 810/Maxima/Bluebird/Skyline etc. stuff. It appears to be a copy of the dealer program. It runs poorly, and I didn't spend much time on it, but if anybody wants to learn how to use it etc, here's the ISO file for burning to your own CD:

ftp://asavage.dyndns.org/Nissan/Nissan_FAST.iso (567MiB)

ftp://asavage.dyndns.org/Nissan/Nissan_FAST.toc (110b) contains:
CD_ROM


// Track 1
TRACK MODE1
NO COPY
DATAFILE "f:/Nissan_FAST.bin" 64:30:01 // length in bytes: 594434048
The application is scary to install. But I did manage to get it to come up and do something, just not very useful stuff. I'm pretty sure I got ripped off, but perhaps one of you is more patient.

The thing is, I can't reliably do part number lookups with this thing.

For example, I'm supposed to be able to type in a VIN and have it auto-fill some fields, but it doesn't like my VIN.

And choosing from the Models list (56 models), I have Maxima (which does not go old enough) and Bluebird (which is the right years, but no LD28 or AT, only LD20 and MT).

I think this may be a non-US-models parts catalogue.

Hmph. No. Well, yes. Kinda.

I bought this one for a tenth of what it's worth, off eBay about a year ago:

It's the "final" version of the official 810 (910 in non-US countries) Parts Catalogue. It's . . . a treasure. However, it's got a lot of pages, and they're of bible-paper weight, so it's not feasible to scan it, even if I had an extra 200 hours or so to do it.

And I've never found another one -- believe me, I've looked!

DML has an old, right-hand-drive version of this Parts Catalogue for $20, but it's of limited usefulness IMO, because it probably doesn't cover US-spec 810s.

(they actually have four of them: two 1980, two 1981; three of them are $10 ea, the one above is $20)

But for the 720, only right-hand, non-US-spec stuff turns up, like this one for $20:

(they've got two of 'em, same price: 1980 & 1981)

If you find a source for either of these Parts Catalogues (C-0380U, C-0350U), please let me know. I would desperately like to own one for the 720.

I haven't found an effective way to Google for them either. I do run a canned search for them on eBay, but only ONE has ever turned up since I bought mine -- and a member here missed buying it by that much for some reason :roll:

If I could buy a US-spec one of those for 720 1982-86, I'd pay $50 for it.

[later]
I suppose I could contact Nissan about them.

Sounds right, the RHD copy of the 910 parts catalog I have (hard copy) doesn't show LD28 engine option, only the LD20, so it does sound like you have the non-US version.

Years ago someone was giving away copies of the VW Etka parts application...very scary! Never could get it to run without crashing.

A while back there was a microfiche version for the 810 on E'bay. I let it get away the first time, but contacted the seller, and he relisted it for me. It is from April 83. The publication number is C-0380U. It is on 5 fiche. I don't have a fiche reader. I tried scanning it, but couldn't get useable detail. I have thought about getting it converted, but don't know what that would cost. Might be hard to get it done anyway, as it is copyrighted. With the right equipment it could become a PDF. That would be nice.
