Re: Front Strut Comparison PL510, A510, 280ZX, S110 200SX

FWIW, I measured some S12 200SX struts and put it in the same format as Byron's measurements to compare with his PL510 and 280ZX measurements. These were '85 200SX Turbo struts with 4-bolt hubs. Vented rotors are within a few mm of 280ZX size. Brake calipers are similar to 280ZX but pad is slightly ...

Re: Post Pics Of Your RARE datsun Parts

Bought this linkage kit for parts to complete an SU linkage setup many years ago. https://i.imgur.com/YKIO9Vi.jpg It had several leftover pieces that I never thought much about. https://i.imgur.com/OWopkYY.jpg https://i.imgur.com/TtjQrOL.jpg Flash forward to this last weekend when I found myself che...

Re: Steering column thread pitch

The nut is just a nut, nothing special except that it's metric. There's supposed to be a serrated washer underneath for locking. I just bought a nut from a hardware store and it went on fine. Sounds like the problem might be your column threads. Are they rusty? Do whatever it takes (wire brush) to c...

Re: Front short strut inserts whats available in 2019?

I'm using MR2 AW11 Rear Koni Sport inserts in shortened 280ZX struts with 225# springs. Bought the Konis in spring 2017, but should still be available.

Re: Steering column thread pitch

Parts manual says M6x1.5

edit- Says M6 but I think that 's a typo. Should be M16.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Installing a remote oil filter mount. Last week I got the filter mounted on the strut tower with the Traco mount. Today I installed the BRE remote filter block adapter and assembled the oil return hose.

Re: 2018 SCCA Runoffs..Run to the Championship

You guys actually polished off multiple 45 GALLON barrels of wine? By my calculations that's 227 bottles of wine per barrel! Was the entire paddock helping you I hope? Thanks for the excellent reporting and pics!

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

I guess I should add that the late "close ratio" 280ZX gearboxes with the tall 5th gear can be identified by having the 10mm speedo pinion sleeve retaining nut on the bottom (6 o'clock position). Gear ratios are: 7/70-6/83 3.062 1.858 1.308 1 0.745 Compared with the chart above from the Motorsports ...

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

Something the OP needs to realize- the 280ZX had something like 205/60-15 tires. Much taller 24.7" diameter vs. a nominal 23" tire in a 510. And the L28E had a lot more torque than a four, and a lot more weight to motivate. So gear ratio and diff ratio are not the complete story. That said, I just w...

Re: Swift springs

My understanding is that Swift use a proprietary spring steel alloy that allows for thinner wire diameter for a given spring rate, so they provide marginally more travel before stacking solid. This can be significant if running short 8" springs on a 510. I changed from 8" Eibach to Swift and noticed...
