Re: Noob build

How much does a system like this cost for the 510? My heater core is in pretty bad shape and needs a complete rebuild by a professional shop. The vintage air system sounds like a good alternative.

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

Fred, I'm very curious on how you make out as I picked up the exact same R160 for mine but haven't got that far in my build. As soon as I get it done I'll update the thread with the result. In the mean time, I checked the hardness of the shafts and it's too hard to be machined. The groove needs to ...

Yeah, I've read it this morning. Is William on this forum? I'm still new to the community so I don't know everyone.

Thanks. I'll remove the dust shield and machine the axles to make them work.
I'll figure out the dust shield issue after.

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

Found the picture i was looking for from this post: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=24386&hilit=stub
510 R160 left and S30 R180 right?

The shafts look identical to me, only the dust shields are different.

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

Thanks Jordan, there's good info in there. Since I'm not swapping the internals, my case looks easier. But the paragraph on the stub axles is similar to what I think I have to do. So, I finally picked up the R160 Suretrac differential this weekend. It does only require symmetrical stub axles with sn...

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

The second is to use the S30 (240Z)R180 stub axles as they are longer, have the same half shaft bolt pattern to the 510 R160 so you have more shaft to play with and are the same spline count. Thanks Byron, that's a good plan B if the 510 stubs are indeed too short. I ran the R160 for a while with 4...

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

I think I managed to put every pieces of the puzzle from many sources together. The JDM R160 Suretrac uses standard 25 spline symmetrical stub axles. The 510 stub axles should slip right in but needs a minor modification. It is not a bolt in stud axle like old R160, but clips in like all the recent ...

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

There was a thread with some details on this on the realm many years ago iirc. I'd search a little harder if I wasn't on my phone. I'm sure there is, it's a 12 years old diff. I can't belive I'm the first person interested in swaping it. But I searched the powertrain thread with every key words I c...

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

Yeah... I've been reading for hours now. Still can't find any information for the the R160 Suretrac lsd swap in a Datsun, but I know it can be done. It is a mechanical LSD, similar to a Torsen. So it's not like the old CLSD where the stub bolts in. It is not a VLSD as described and shown in the DQ V...

Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

I was looking at the R180 LSDs for my swap, but I stumbled on this R160 for sale. Can't find any clear info on what it takes to swap it in a 510. Is it doable? easier than an R180? Does anyone have information on this diff swap? Since I'm only aiming at 180/200hp, I figured the smaller R160 is proba...

Re: Noob build

Is the Lizard skin sound deadener wear resistant? I really like how it looks and it might help to hide the little imperfections on my floor pans. I don't plan on putting a carpet back into mine.

Re: Five-Hundred and Ten

looks very good indeed, especially for a first time. Mine is rusted at the exact same spot. It gives me a bit of confidence since I've never done any patchwork either.

Keep it up!
