Re: Bike rides

Not many images of bike rides lately. And not to put down any of the images, they are all great stuff. So I thought I would post a video of a bike ride: Megavalance alpe d'heuz: https://youtu.be/jmy_of5mRTQ and this ride is of the 2018 winner for his class: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dpnh6yLj_OA

Re: "83 280ZX close ratio box and 3:90 differential

Tedman, thanks for the info. I do plan to upgrade to 15" wheels/tires which should help a little if I keep the 3:90 diff. My L20B has been worked on a little too. Head work to install new valve seats, guides, and larger intake valves. A pair of Weber 40DCOE carbs, intake manifold and head ports enla...

Re: "83 280ZX close ratio box and 3:90 differential

Mike, Sorry for a late reply. When I rebuilt the transmission, I counted the teeth on the gears. So it is a close ratio. Can't find the sheet with the numbers now. But if the 280zx had a 3:90 differential with a close ratio box, I'm guessing it did ok on the highway, but then again the engine had a ...

"83 280ZX close ratio box and 3:90 differential

Will this combination cause issues?
Hard to get around in town?
Should the differential be upgraded to a 4:11?
The 280ZX had a 3:90 differential, so....

My engine is an L20B with a WebCam 91 mild street cam and dual Weber 40DCOE. Soon to have a header and 2.25" exhaust.

Please advise.

Not sure what year SSS dash you need information for - early or late.
Sorry, my bad. Late SSS is what I'm looking for. The 6-gauge instrument cluster like this:

Datsun 510/1600 SSS wiring diagram

Has anybody got a lead on the wiring diagram for the 1600 SSS model 510? Especially the SSS instruments.

And has anybody got a lead on a dash wiring loom for the SSS?

Cheers,

Re: 280zx rear control arms on a 510 crossmember

Thanks Byron. So if someone wanted to do this kind of mod, they would want the late control arms from a 280ZX (82-83). AND to add the crossmember mod to give adjustable camber and toe. Which "may" give you the adjustment needed to get an adequate toe/camber. BUT what about track width? Would some of...

280zx rear control arms on a 510 crossmember

Has anyone tried to install 280ZX rear control arms onto a 510 crossmember? Will it work? If you go to coilover shocks it might, but what about track width and wheelbase, and half-shaft bolt up? The setup does give you rear disc brakes. Datsun 510 subframe with 280zx arms brand new calipers new pads...

Is it just me or does that one spring retainer look like it has been contacted? The anodizing has some marks on the edge. That rocker is way too far back from the center of the lash pad.
yes and yes. Also, the wear pattern on the cam lobe doesn't look right either. Or is that just a reflection?

WTB: SSS instrument cluster (6-gauge cluster)

I am looking for SSS instrument cluster. Most likely it would be for RHD car, but my plan it to convert to LHD. So I would probably need two complete gauge clusters with working gauges.

This is picture of RHD gauge cluster. Not my picture, but the internet.
