Swapping mount studs to bolt on Differential

Have to drop my tranny here in the new few weeks and want to swap out the studs in the diff cover to bolts to make R&R easier. What bolts do I need to buy and would lock washers be suggested as well? Found these? https://www.belmetric.com/12mm-c-2_1046_1051/bfi12x30-small-wrench-ifi-109-p-5751.h...

Re: CV Failure

While getting a transmission noise checked out, the well-known shop also looked at the rear end to see if that had anything to do with noise. Doesn't look like it was BUT the owner with 30+ years of experience did comment that the Ermish CV axle kit had a ton of play. When he showed me the car up on...

Re: NVH Issues

Yeah my neighbor has a drive-on hoist I can use. Didn't think it would make a difference as being IRS the diff is locked in place and not moving whether the wheels are up or down. So when you say equally you mean both right and left front shims get moved to the top and the rear shims stay in place?

Re: CV Failure

Confirmed with Troy that his CV Axle Kit may need around 7 or 8 pumps of grease annually. Already have some grease spatter on my coilovers which is normal per Troy. Spoke with Baz at Datsport, MadDat, and The Driveshaft Shop. They all said that the kits they make or did make (Baz) don't require any ...

Re: NVH Issues

Drove the car today at highway speeds and just the slight decrease in angularity difference from 1.6 degrees down to 1.4 degrees made a difference at 80mph. Thinking of removing the spacer between tranny and mount and trying to adjust just using the differential. So to tilt the differential the righ...

Re: NVH Issues

Working on trying to get every bit of vibration out of my driveline as I start to feel some during acceleration and at speeds above 75+mph. Was able to get my 510 on a lift this past week and measure what I believe are the right spots on the driveline but would love someone to verify that. As I writ...

Re: CV Failure

So the new Ermish CV kit does have built-in grease fittings which is nice. Also while there are 4 bungs (right word?) for the grease only two have the fittings while the others just have a plug. Troy mentioned that it was to avoid the inner fittings being ripped out from low ground clearance and I w...

Re: The Red Baron

Went to Rebello to drop off the oil pan and timing cover for the new engine and was able to see the forged JE pistons for the 2360cc build. Who knew that a piston could look so beautiful?! LOL.

Re: CV Failure

I have Troy's new improved kit (not sure if that means they will last longer?) but he did tell me that they should be regreased every year or so. BUT the job sounded more like simple maintenance with 10 squirts using a grease gun to each grease fitting once a year. Don't know why the Futofab ones wo...

Re: The Red Baron

Car is back from Troy's and the new CV kit and aluminum driveshaft made a big difference in a reduction in NVH. Still noticing a minor vibration at speeds above 75mph so will likely need some tinkering with the driveline angle to make it as smooth as possible. Today the modified oil pan showed up fr...

Re: NVH Issues

Much better now! When putting in the new KA24 transmission we were able to lower the rear of tranny quite a lot compared to the dogleg that was in there before. A significant decrease in vibration when accelerating. Still something very slight but that's before getting the car up on a lift again and...

Re: Mikuni Intake question.

That will work fine and is a common "shorty" Mikuni intake. Doesn't flow as well as the "longer" Datsun Comp one BUT does allow you to run full velocity stacks. Think it's for sale near me on CL for $400. IMHO overpriced and should be closer to $250.

Re: Spring Rate Feedback

Well after chatting with Troy Ermish and riding in a few 510s this weekend I'm probably going with 200lb springs all the way around for now. Seems like a nice compromise between what Julian likes (175lbs) and what many 510s run which is closer to 250lbs. Still well more than double what a stock 510 ...

Spring Rate Feedback

Recently put 250lb/in spring in the rear coilovers and after driving around am thinking they might be a little too much. Especially at 65mph+ the ride in the rear gets harsh. Have unknown front springs which will be updated soon. Leaning towards having a slightly higher rear spring rate and running ...
