Re: Is the Subaru R180 the same as the Nissan / Datsun R180

Hello everyone and thanks again for all the feedback. I have some follow-up questions. I bought another R180 but made the mistake of buying an earlier year.. 1971 R180. I am not sure if I made a mistake amd and should have gone with 1977 or newer. I missed that detail that one member pointed out in ...

Re: Is the Subaru R180 the same as the Nissan / Datsun R180

No worries as I have posted to the other Nissan forums with little response.. No one ever goes where my buddy Tom and go with our bastardized car... but having 3.13 would be nice and that is the lowest I have found to exist in an R180. I would prefer 3.0 or 2.9 ratios but that is not going to happen...

Re: Is the Subaru R180 the same as the Nissan / Datsun R180

Re: Is the Subaru R180 the same as the Nissan / Datsun R180

Thanks, but are you sure that the 180 and 160 side gears (not sure of the proper name) inside the diffy where the half shafts attach to are not the same. I am talking about a Nissan early (1973) R180 and R 160 and just these side shafts?

Sorry I just want to clarify...

Thanks

Re: Is the Subaru R180 the same as the Nissan / Datsun R180

Here is what I am trying to do... Take the 3.13 gears from the R180 front axle Xterra and put them into a R180 rear differential. I am have been looking for a cheap donor R180 from an earlier Z car (I dont want the clip in side axles). I have access to some nice free Subaru R180S. I also have a r160...

Re: 3.13 Gears from R180 front axle Xterra

You really dont want to know all the work to get the 510 rear frame (yolk) in another car.....

Even with 3.13 in the car I will be able to literally still smoke the tires (and they are meaty tires) in the first two gears.....

And besides I like to go places no one has before...

My information shows a 3.13 for some reason. For my car ** 1971 Spitfire with 4.3L Chevy V-6, T-5, and Datsun R180 ... I wanted to go to a lower gear set for better performance....

3.13 Gears from R180 front axle Xterra

Any one know if the crown and pinion gear from the front differential r180 (3.13 rear ratio) from the Xterra will swap into the R180 rear differential case of the early Z-cars? Or if any has not tried this, any reason it would not work?


Thanks for any useful information.

Re: Rear Suspension Bushing bolts

Byron, thanks. I am back in China now so I dont need them immediately. I used a 1/2 bolt with a long shank to get my through while I was in the US.
