Re: TA 71B #2 Tranny

We buy the rebuild kits from cobratransmission.com. All of their Nissan (not listed under Datsun) 5speed kits are ultimately the same, for that series trans that was used in the 1977 280Z thru the 1983 280ZX. The kits have qty 5 brass synchro rings, but the earlier 1977-1980'ish 5speed with the .864...

Re: 80's Subaru clutch LSD 3.70 What's it worth?

Yes, the early generation Subbie diffs are R160. They are basically the same diff made by Fuji Heavy Industries that came in the 510...........Subbie simply took over using them around 1984, 10 or so years after Datsun stopped. There is a "star bolt" way down inside the center of those Subaru stub a...

Re: Stock trans tunnel cover plate question

Yes that is a factory original rubber seal, under the stamped steel shifter plate. It simply had a hole in the middle for the shift lever to poke thru. Was likely an attempt to quiet down road noise and/or keep road dirt etc at a minimum. Then, of course, you would have the actual OVAL rubber shift ...

Re: Exhaust sound

So a later model twin cam engine will ultimately sound like a Honda etc, especially if you have what many refer to as a "fart can" muffler! Like datzenmike said...........both personal & subjective! I sold hundreds of stainless mufflers & exhaust systems for Sport Compacts (Honda's etc) back in the ...

Re: 510 metal part-out in Western MT

FYI roof panel is same 2dr sedan & 4dr sedan.........stainless drip rail moulding is same part! Cut the 2dr B pillars out & save, leaving excess metal (I see you did this at the top) at top & bottom. You can BOLT UP 2dr doors on a 4dr sedan or a Wagon, install the 2dr B pillars & create a 2dr..........

Re: Fear no More. Remove that Drip Rail Trim with Confidence

I'm a firm believer in getting the best possible paint job by removing ALL trim on any car. However, I typically suggest to 510 people to MASK OFF this drip rail moulding, to NOT remove it for two reasons............first, it is a pain to remove without bending/damaging & second, if the NEW paint is...

Re: ISO left/driver side doors 4 dr

Be sure to salvage all of the parts off of the damaged doors, especially the window reg (fits ALL 2dr 4dr & Wagon!) & the stainless waist trim strip (fits 4dr & Wagon)! What a shame............ :(

Re: WTB - Dogleg Trans Shift Lever

Hey datzenmike! I have seen two different length lower extensions of these shift levers, from center of pivot pin down to the lower tip where the plastic bushing snaps on. I can see the two different lengths in your pic above (disregard for now the lever with the 2pc plastic bushing at the pivot pin...

Re: WTB: Rocker Panel Trim

I have often wondered if a company like Dorman had a mounting plate & stud, similar to the original plate like #3 in the illustration above......?? If you could find a similar shape BUT larger, you could potentially trim it down to suit the original trim strip. The spring clips in the middle of the ...

Re: Engine harness help

Yes, your first pic at the top! I see that is the sub harness for the voltage regulator, then the other two metal relays. I think you need to retain those & wire from one of them........I think the red/red black wired one (??)........wire down to the reverse switch . Sorry, been a while!

Re: Engine harness help

Is the harness original to the car? If the car was unmolested, it likely is. If the car was modified & messed with, might not be. All three harness sections had white plastic part # tags. The dash harness tag usually survived, so you can verify by part #. If the engine compartment harness plugs in A...

Re: Datsun 510 Wagon

Most definitely a 1968! Some parts are very hard to find, cuz 1968 only. She's a l'il rough & rusty, but being a 1968, somebody might save it! Good luck with the sale!
