Glenn Goodwin back at West Coast Nissan.

I think this qualifies as an Event!! One of our favorite Nissan Parts guys is back at West Coast Nissan in Pitt Meadows. Drop in and say Hi. I'm sure he'd appreciate seeing his old friends and customers. :D

280Z improvements

Time to reduce the pile of parts in the bedroom that's been growing for the last 3 years. Front coil-overs and stuff: TT3 DIY kit. 250 Lb/in Eibachs. Koni Sport MR2 dampers. Byron shortened the struts, welded on the spring perches and re-threaded the top of the struts. None of this sectioning and re...

Re: Brake Pad Compounds

Yep... ran them on my Datsun 1200 and 240Z at Westwood. Were great on the 240Z. Could out brake Porsche 911's ( which they did not like at all ) .

The 1200 could brake with Formula Fords!!! So deep it was scary!!!

Re: CV Failure

Yes, I've heard that myself. Talking to some other Z owners from NZ and AU, that seems to be the way you fellows " Do it in a Datsun ". I think it's just a Regional thing. If I convert my 280Z I'll use the Nissan Tripod style as well. Right now the old faithfull U-joints are working just f...

Re: CV Failure

Why are grease fittings on cvs a good thing? Read an FSM... there's a specified amount of grease that should be in the boots and when they don't leak if sealed properly. Case in point as mentioned by chickenman. I would not be regreasing CVs even if they had zerks. Too much grease and it'll squeeze...

Re: CV Failure

Pretty sure the VW/Audi gaskets will work as well. There are various sizes available from VW/Audi and other vendors Gasket for 90mm CV : https://www.ecstuning.com/Audi-B5_A4-Quattro-1.8T/Drivetrain/Axles/CV/2 There is also a smaller one for the driveshaft, but I can't seem to find the mm size at the...

Re: CV Failure

Typical Audi/VW CV gasket: about $5 each. There are several different sizes. . I've never seen an OEM car manufacturer NOT use gaskets or O-Rings to seal the grease in between the CV and the mating hub.

Re: CV Failure

Personally, If I was going to get some CV's for my Datsun 280Z, I would go to an Auto Wrecker  and pull the axles from an later model Audi or VW.  Pick A  Part in Chilliwack has CV axles for $34.95 CDN each. And they have a few Audi's in the yard right now. ( Ton's of VW's and Passats ). I was out t...

Re: CV Failure

255,000 KM on the ORIGINAL CV's on my Audi A4 AWD. Prop shaft has CV's as well. Oh... and they all have gaskets between the CV and the mating flange. FWIW. If you split a boot on OEM Audi/VW's the honest shops tell you to just clean the original CV's and replace boot and grease. Don't buy an afterma...
