Re: Knox Mountain Hillclimb 2018

Was nice to spend some time with a new crew from Edmonton running the #24 car, an nice 240z with a Rebello stroker.
Wasn't there Sunday to see how they did, but I know they had fun!

I didn't see any teeth marks on Keith, hope it was nothing serious! Looking forward to details.

Re: 240MM clutch experience

The 74-78 280z 2+2 and the 82-83 ZX turbo's used a 240mm clutch. The zx turbo's also had a borg warner 5 speed, but I'm pretty sure the clutches were not different from the earlier 2+2 clutches. A quick Rockauto part number comparison will check that. Now compatibility with the KA flywheel is anoth...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

My son has signed up for the Sunday autocross at the Calgary airport. You should drop out and run those sticky tires. I'm sure he would like to see another 510 there. Justin would be easy to spot. Last time I think he was the oldest car by over 20 years. Now there's a good idea! Haven't done that i...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Added some freshly powder coated 15" turbo Z rims with a better offsets than the prior Panasports, and some fresh Toyo R1R sticky's in 195/50-15.

Even had some purdy "Datsun" stickers to hide the unsightly "Z" emblem on the center caps.

Re: Rear wheel stud help

I think Nismo has some 60mm studs too. That's pretty much 2.5 inch, maybe that's what Dave is supplying.

Re: Rear wheel stud help

Absolute bare minimum thread engagement length is ~ one bolt diameter. And that is for low stress use until you can actually get 1.5 - 2 x the bolt diameters engaged.

Late 90's Nissan Quest rear studs are 45 mm long I think. Google that to get the details right.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Technically this was yesterday. Took the latest project car to my favorite painter. Mark Ross. IMG_3320.JPG That's Mark in it. He just couldn't wait to get in and drive it around. He's done all of my Datsun projects for several years. And because I know you HAVE to know the color, it's staying baby ...

Re: Muffler selection. Magic solution needed.

Excellent advice, thanks all. Jsut getting the clue about the Walker Quiet-Flow mufflers is worth its weight in gold. Quiet flow mufflers are OEM replacements, so finding a suitable size is a bit of a trick. Looking through Walker listings on Summit Racing, shows the 21690 15 in long, 4.35 thick/8.8...

Muffler selection. Magic solution needed.

Well the question of the day relates to how to keep me quiet. Or at least the 71 510 I'm working on quiet. What I'm looking for is the answer to the eternal question, "If I wanted to make carburetor induction sucking noise the loudest thing I hear, and I'm not interested in wringing every HP out of ...

Re: Saw this article today. 510 the new 57 chevy

I don't think I've ever seen Don here on the forum.

He's worse than me for being "in the Datsun business" but not really anxious to advertise it. He's most active on FB. He is "Don Williams of JDMotorsports".

That said, he's a great guy, knows his Datsun's. Very helpful.
