Re: Upgrading rear diff

Mine seemed to be okay. It was an s13 vLSD with 5x1 r32 skyline gtst output shafts.

Re: Upgrading rear diff

Hmmm. I understand what you mean now... the c clip groove on the output shafts won't work very well given the offset switch from one side to the other. Maybe try to assemble the whole thing and see if there's enough forgiveness in the whole output shaft to absorb the changes?

Re: Upgrading rear diff

I've been there done that. S13 vLSD into a 3.9 z31 NA long nose r200. I kept the original long nose spacers and shims on the carrier. Swapped the long nose ring onto the vLSD carrier and reassembled. Didn't check backlash etc but it all felt fine. Certainly not 8mm out. I did not mess with anything ...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Did you inspect the worn out diff before it went in?
What oil did you run?

Re: Rear discs with internal drum handbrake?

I used z32/r32 rear calipers with internal drum ebrake. The r32 setup requires a lot of depth behind wheel mounting flange that just isn't there on a 510 control arm. I ended up making custom control arms that are well documented in my build thread. FFS all the pics are dead. http://www.the510realm....

Yes! I'm keeping the 510. I have some cool stuff up my sleeve for the winter!

Re: What's wrong with my diff??

Oh very good to know. Maybe we can arrange a batch rate for all 3! :D

I have a few good diffs I can pick from to toss in the car for the meantime.

Re: What's wrong with my diff??

Loctite 638 is in the back of my mind. It has the same strength as an FN4 press fit so it's pretty sweet stuff. 4500psi shear strength.

That's a good idea. I'll look into an sti temp sensor.

Re: What's wrong with my diff??

I'm sure it wouldn't be too cool... I will gather some data on that though. Maybe I should go for something in between something standard 75W90 and something crazy. 75W110 has improved properties that are probably pretty reasonable. I just did some reading on Redline Shockproof Heavy and people in m...

Re: “Golddust” – Jordan’s RB26 twin turbo powered S14 260SX

So I've put a whole 4km on the car this year. With a heavy heart I announce that this will be coming up in the classifieds in the near future. It will have a working differential by then! :) Stay tuned! https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4257/34887781894_19e55f56a7_h.jpg I'm also going to list my 1990 A...

Found the problem!

I was able to tear the diff out of the car this past weekend. I documented the teardown and figured I'd share the results. Here's what I found from the oil drain plug. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4432/36117731664_9ec97487a3_h.jpg Left cap off. Nothing spun. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4404/367...

Re: NVH Issues

I get adding washers between the chassis and top of the mustache bar and will try that if needed. But for the shims used for bolting the diff into the crossmember, is anyone not running a pair in the 4 possible locations? Seems like they have to be either in the top or bottom but not neither. Right...

Re: NVH Issues

Dropping the engine mounts or adding shims above the moustache bar will help achieve the alignment you need. I added shims above the moustache bar on my ka510 until there was no more stud available for the nuts. Changing the shims inside the crossmember will change parallel misalignment but not chan...

Re: Silvia

Yep, we rented bikes. It was $80 for a bike, helmet and shuttle ride with a shower afterwards. A pretty good deal I think. Thankfully Williams lake highway opened up right before the trip so we did only the Kamloops/24 detour both ways. I hate driving 16. I'll describe the places that had minimal sm...
