Re: Driveshaft length

The driveshaft will be shortened and balanced at a reputable driveline specialty place here. Just have to get the length figured out. Think I'm on the right track now

Driveshaft length

Question. I'm getting ready to mount my driveshaft. 1970 Datsun 510 (obviously). S14sr20det with 5 speed. Is there any magic formula for determining how much I need to have it shortened? I.e. Distance from tip of trasmission output shaft to surface of differential input flange. I've slid the transmi...

Re: Brakes questions

I'm probably going to put a bias adjuster in because I like to vary the bias for different activities, and I'm putting a hydraulic handbrake in as well once I get the drivetrain in and install the trans shifter cover I've got coming from datsport. I picked up a universal pushrod kit and just had to ...

Brakes questions

Sr20det install with steering cross link

Do I need to do anything with my steering cross link when installing the sr20. Have my crossmember flipped already but thought I saw somewhere that the steering link had to be changed in some way. Is that true?

Re: Windshield

Well listen to this...that Chinese windshield that I had in a carton in the basement and was getting ready to install...the one that looked un laminated? It wasn't laminated, it was a rear window! And a genuine Nissan one too! My existing rear window was badly scratched anyway so I installed the re...

Re: Windshield

I. Picked up a new chinese made windshield at Crystal Autoglass here in Calgary last fall for $250-ish. $350 for clearplex sounds like a bit of a profit maker shall we say. Wonder how bugs, dirt, wiper motion etc affect wear. Sure can't scrap ice or snow off it! Maybe they don't stick to this stuff...

Re: Windshield

Regarding everyones issues with pitting on the thinner chinese windshields there are several options. The first is Clearplex, an optically clear film applied to the outside of the windows. Not cheap and for daily drivers would probably have to be replaced in a few years. The next is Diamon-fusion, a...

Re: Windshield

Thanks, thats the info i was looking for. My chinese one is thinner to be sure. I realize they have to be laminated and I havent pulled it from the carton yet, just peeked at two corners and couldn't definitively see a lamination line however, if the glass was edge ground after lamination it could b...
