Re: New swap-4G63T

As a past and present owner of maybe 7 or 8 4G63T engine vehicles, I can relate to the valves seeming to bend easily, but being hard to detect visually. Good luck with it, and if you have need of any stock components, I have valves, rockers, lifters, etc sitting around from a few projects and a head...

Re: gas cap and or filler neck replacement

The rubber part at the body is available new if that would help your situation. I bought one of these but have not installed it yet. I don't have the filler tube either, so project is a bit down the road yet. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-510-68-73-Fuel-tank-Filler-Neck-Rubber-Gas-New-1530/3332148...

Re: Subaru R180 diff in Nissan case

I found and ordered spacers (set of 10 from ebay) that are designed to sleeve bolts on some Dana ring gear applications. They are here: https://www.yukongear.com/productdetails.aspx?ProdID=8508 These initially appear a bit pricey at over $5 a piece, but the set of 10 were just over $30. Need 8, so n...

Chevy bed? I vaguely remember that concept from the 80's mini-truckin' explosion.

Re: Subaru R180 diff in Nissan case

Researching further today and talking to some people in the business, it is suggested that the ring gear will be hard enough material that it may be difficult or near impossible to drill and tap those holes larger. I know Kurt mentioned having that done in the original FAQ written about this many ye...

Re: Subaru R180 diff in Nissan case

Did some exploration on this today. The ring gear inner diameter is 115 mm, so no problem fitting the CLSD unit. After removing it I could also establish the distance from mounting flange to bearing is identical on the two units. One issue to adapt is the bolt size. The Subaru LSD flange has 11mm bo...

Re: Subaru R180 diff in Nissan case

I didn't check that yet, but I need to to make sure. Truck unit is a considered the newer type I believe, so it should match.

Subaru R180 diff in Nissan case

Hey all, I hope someone out there has done this and can chime in. I acquired an R180 Subaru CLSD unit bare, and I am looking to put it in my Nissan 720 truck housing with the 4.38 ring and pinion. It is the K housing, so I am thinking this should fit. This installation shouldn't really be any differ...

Re: 38mm Hitachi carbs + manifold

Is there anything different in size or settings from a set from an L16? If they were on L18s are they a better fit for my L18 when I build it?

Re: Center Mounted Parking Brake

From just that small slice of the seat image, it looks similar to the set I pulled from a 92 3 -series last fall. They are fully manual as well with the three levers. Brackets and sliders seem tall, so I will have to decide how to handle the install. I have read comments before about needing to moun...

Re: New Hot Wheeels coming out ... AGAIN

I haven't seen any of these on the shelf here in the midwest, but I did find a Greenlight version of Taz Harvey's Carrera Panamericana car here recently. It is in their "All-Terrain" series, so you may have to check behind the tractors.
