I just bought a 1971 Datsun 521 because my wife had one in college. We plan to slowly rebuild it. It runs very well, has a few rust spots (although the bed is tight and rust free?) and a pretty gutted interior. But it has some real potential. I almost forgot to mention that two owners back exchanged the 1600 engine for an 1800. My first problem is probably a dumb one but I am new to this; a wheel stud is broken off on the right rear. How do I get the wheel off? I have never encountered one quite like this. The tire and wheel are off and the hub is a mystery. It has two raised "slots" spaced about a half inch apart that look like they should be turned (counter-clockwise?) to reach the center, but they won't budge. Is it just stuck or am I doing the wrong thing entirely. Can anyone help?
By the way, I just found the site and just registered. My wife and I just moved into a rural community East of Albuquerque after spending the last 25 years in the Midwest. We are now retired and close to where we started out.
