By adjusting the inner pivots in or out on the threaded piece, no?

Re: CV Failure

The one thing I noticed in the pics of the CV boot flange is the lack of the little bars of flat steel that go between every two bolts (hope that makes sense) If the grease is leaking out between CV boot flange and CV these little bars help the boot flange stay flat and sealed against the CV, wish ...

Re: Nissan Bluebird Coupe (JCCA Race Car)

Wow. your mate looks like he does some very nice work. I think I'll copy that but in mild steel one day.

I hope you're going to keep the car looking more or less the same on the outside, it just has such a cool racecar look to it.

Re: CV Failure

Is there a better outer boot setup? Its stamped steel with an inner boot seal. If the stamped retainer gets bent or warped the grease has an escape. Could a machined item be made with a true flat surface making things better from that side? Like this? http://www.racereadyproducts.com/cv-boots/forti...

Unusual R160

Anyone ever seen a R160 with a bolt on alloy pinion seal plate thing like this? I sure haven't until now.

Re: 1972 1600SSS from New Zealand

Crossmember still ongoing. I wanted to finish the gearbox stuff (or at least the fab side of it) so here we are. Got the mandrel back from machining (I don't have a 4-jaw so I can't hold it true enough for this job on my lathe), broke all the old tacks, checked and measured then started going for it...

Any interest in CV companion flanges or LD28 cranks?

Hi all, a hoarder near me is having a big clean out, while grabbing a parts car I noticed a couple of old R30 Skylines and F30 Leopards with the correct CV companion flanges for converting 510's, is there any interest in those if I can convince the guy to sell them to me without buying the whole car...

Re: 6 speed sr20det gearbox

Good luck getting that bore aligned to mesh the speedo gears together. But if the trans hasn't the circlip or locating divot for the ball I wouldn't bother because you would have to pull the trans apart to get those machined. If you have the later dash with round speedo I'd simply put a GPS unit in...

Re: Rear discs with internal drum handbrake?

Thanks for posting Brads link to his project. Brads flicker account is still active and visable,many photos of his rear brake upgrade are right at the beginning of the photo series; https://www.flickr.com/photos/25186022@N02/sets/72157604370465162/detail/ This is where I'd seen it documented.

Re: 6 speed sr20det gearbox

Hi Bernie, I have one I'm adapting to my L series. I hunted around for an early one so that I would have the ability to run my 1600 speedo drive with it. The speedo drive out of a L series gearbox fits in these perfectly apparently. There is no worm gear on the output shaft, but you can machine an L...

Re: Speed Sensor (VSS) for 4 Speed Transmission

I'd try one of these Marlin Crawler speedo adapters https://www.marlincrawler.com/transfer-case/parts-upgrade/misc-hardware/vehicle-speed-sensor-mci Toyota and Nissan both use M22x1.5 and my Celica Supra speedo cable end looks exactly like my Datsun one so assuming the pulse outputs are compatible y...

Re: Rear discs with internal drum handbrake?

Thanks Jordan, looks like we both tried going down the same road there - another 6-8mm or so and there would be room to slide a caliper mounting bracket between the backing plate and the arm, alas the backs of the wheel studs almost touch the shoes even before you try that. I think I'm going to end ...

Rear discs with internal drum handbrake?

As stated, has anyone managed to come up with a rear disc conversion that uses an internal drum parking brake? I have setup off a C32 Laurel that looks like it could almost work, but may require some mods that I'm not too happy about doing to make it all bolt on. I've searched and couldn't find anyt...

Re: 1972 1600SSS from New Zealand

Oh sheesh, that's a good idea that seems so simple once someone suggests it. All my life I have just assumed you couldn't bend tungsten without snapping it... then I find out you can as long as you heat it :shock: Yeah I do have a gas lens, I tried a super long stick-out on another project and was ...
