Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Thanks for the warning Keith, I guess I'll just take them out completely.
I don't think the rear sits too low, but there's no fuel tank or battery in there yet.

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Time for an update. It's been almost 7 months since my last post. So first of all, I have to say I failed to update my thread as I progress as I said I would try to do... :( BUT, I'm right on schedule with my plan. 8) It's going to be picture heavy. I'll pick up exactly where I left off! I finaly ma...

Re: Diff swap: STI R160 LSD 4.44 Suretrac

Not yet, I've had other issues taking more time than expected. The diff is in the car but I did not machine the stub axles yet.

WTB: Rear control arm bolts

I need a pair of rear control arm bolts. NLA across Canada from Nissan.

Had to cut 2 of them and I don't have any spare.

Thanks

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

That looks good! Is that a custom or commercial header? I just picked up my Sr20DE. It came without the stock header so I need one that clears the steering box.

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: http://www.the510realm.com/viewtopic.ph ... 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...
