Re: Datsun Restomods CV showing at Byron's - Nov 25th 1-5 PM

Sorry for not getting on sooner to answer questions, it's been a crazy 2 weeks of travel and getting sets out - two more today to Realm members. Shipment.jpg There's no official thread yet so I apologize for the lack of clear information on pricing/options. I'm hoping to get the website up Jan 1st a...

CV w/integrated Subie R180 STI stubs

Yes, another post about CVs. Hopefully nobody's getting sick of them. :lol: R180_2.jpg This latest version will remain on my personal build so it does follow the original objective to this thread. As soon as the web site is live (ETA Jan 1st) I'm hoping to open a separate thread that will house deta...

Re: Datsun Restomods CV showing at Byron's - Nov 25th 1-5 PM

... I was maybe a bit disappointed that the shafts would not fit my car... Fritz's product is very, very nice and will be a solid upgrade for those that can use them! Thanks to all who provided positive feedback - it means a lot to me coming from the collective experience of this group! I'm disappo...

Re: In tank fuel pump conversion

In your opinion, is it worth the price tag? For us it's more than 700 CAD$. It's the only reason I was leaning towards the Tanks Inc solution since it's half the price. http://www.tanksinc.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=84/category_id=61/mode=prod/prd84.htm That's pretty much the reaso...

Re: Wanted: Half shaft bolts

Check out Zcardepot. They've got their own in-house brand for $4.50 USD each. I'm using them and seem to be identical to OEM.

Re: Datsun Restomods CV showing at Byron's - Nov 25th 1-5 PM

Had an awesome afternoon at Byron's - it was a real pleasure to meet everyone and geek-out on Datsuns. Upon arrival a Meston 510 was prepped and ready for CV installation. Prepping.jpg Some exhaust alterations were made as a precaution to not melt the boots. TeamEffort.jpg Afterwards we spend some t...

Re: Datsun Restomods CV showing at Byron's - Nov 25th 1-5 PM

Quick update, the CVs did NOT clear Bertvorgon's 3" exhaust. The rubber boot/strap was physically touching the exhaust. Had his exhaust went another 1" rearward it would have likely cleared. So for larger exhausts there's definitely less margin, but depending on routing it's still possible to comfor...

Re: Datsun Restomods CV showing at Byron's - Nov 25th 1-5 PM

It's FAR better than the -20 I left behind. Funny how perspective works eh? :)

It shouldn't take long, I'm getting pretty damn good at swapping these.

Flying out to Vancouver tomorrow morning with 90 pounds of CVs - maxing out Air Canada's baggage allowance. 8) Looking forward to escaping the -20c early winter in Ottawa.

Re: Noobie's 510 project

Thanks for the feedback Michael - it's been something I've considered at length during the design phase. With a CV (constant velocity/rotational speed) it wouldn't matter the orientation of the flange because it's now only a means to fasten - no different the random angle that a male spline on a mod...

Datsun Restomods JDM R160 stubs

I'm slowly starting to leak the news that there's a solution for leveraging Subaru's cool R160 LSD options. In the pic below you can see the slightly longer Subaru stub on the left vs the OEM 510 on the right. JDM_R160_Stubs.jpg I've begun to offer JDM R160 stubs that bolt up to Datsun 1/2 axles, or...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

Fritz, it would be great to meet up with you, and now we have extra good reason. If you'd like to plan a get together - meet and greet in Vancouver, let us know a time and place. Byron Byron has been kind enough to offer his place for a get together and see a CV in person (will be installing it in ...

Datsun Restomods CV showing at Byron's - Nov 25th 1-5 PM

For those who haven't had a chance to hear/read about the CVs on my build thread, I'm starting to offer OEM CVs that fit PL510 and S30 Datsuns as well as Subaru R160-compatible stubs that work on the JDM Suretrac and Viscous units.

Quick update on the CVs. One R160 CV and stub set has already been sold to Fred_L-P, Datsun Restomods' first customer! Super great guy btw, he spent several hrs with Andrew and I last weekend.
