Re: Diff's & LSD's

I have always heard, C-LSD's are bad, V-LSD's are good. Im in the same boat right now researching what to run pre-turbo so I can actually move my car post turbo. Well, the following is just my take on it so I could be wrong. I welcome your reply if you know something different from what I have lear...

Re: Diff's & LSD's

I use the R200 CLSD ("clutch" type LSD) from the '87-'89 300ZX (Z31) turbo cars. Pretty indestructable setup in a 510. I heard somewhere that Nissan used the Precision Gear "Power Brute" LOM59-12 spool unit to to make these diffs.

Re: so canadians tell me bout your heath care system

The biggest issue I have ever heard with the Canadian system is the extremely long wait times to get some of the treatments for ailments that are typically in older people. There seems to be some sort of "unspoken" priority given to younger people and to the severity of the illness. Couple of exampl...

Re: Local Sand Blaster?

Have them soda blast it. Don't use sand as a blast media for any body parts or you'll warp them badly.

Re: Kaaz LSD?

Those are all short nose diffs. The 510 will need a long nose version of the R180 or R200 and then you should be able to source an LSD spool to replace the open spool. Probably easiest would be a clutch pack type LSD from either Nissan or the OEM that made them for Nissan - Precision Gear and the Po...

Re: " Built " R200 LSD

The nominal "4.11" ratio of the short nose R200 used in Nissan's is actually a 4.083 ratio (49 teeth on the ring gear and 12 teeth on the pinion). The long nose R200 uses a 37 tooth ring gear and a 9 tooth pinion to give a final drive ratio of 4.111. The ring gears are not interchangeable between th...

Re: WTB 68 wiring harness

I have a '69 shell with the harness still intact. I'm across the border in S.W. Ontario (east of you) if your interested. Not sure if it would be identical to what your looking for though. PM me and we can discuss the details.

Re: Visitor to Kelowna

It's this weekend!! I was talking to the taxi driver asking him where Know Mountain was and he pointed it out to me. Alas, I'm flying back to SWO Friday AM - we have a track day to get ready for this weekend at Dunnville.

Visitor to Kelowna

Hi all,

I'm in Kelowna for a couple of days for a trade show downtown. Any 510ers around this week interested in grabbing a beer? Staying at the Coast Capri for the Commtech Show (Wed & Thurs).

Re: Act your age. Wait no... Post your age

56 Bought my first 240Z in 1973. Owned about 20-25 of them over the years - a few as road cars, raced a few, crashed a few and scrapped the rest for parts. Got rid of the last one 3 yrs. ago to move on to a '95 Skyline GT-R. Bought my first PL510 in 1975. Owned about 10-15 of them over the years (2 ...

This thing will record objects moving at up to 33,000 feet per second. Are you guys driving that fast in BC that they now need to use red l...

Re: IMSA GTU rules

I campained an HL510 in 1979/80 in the Champion Spark Plug Challenge (IMSA sanctioned campaigning alongside the GTU series). I'll see if I can find one of my old rule books.
