Baz @ datsport said he put out a few feelers so any helps a plus haha. but if anyonoe else knows where to get one, even if it's just off a junk parts car in australia/japan, would be much appreciated if I could b...

WTB: RHD steering box - Datsun 510

I'm having quite an ordeal trying to locate a box. I've posted on other forums, and tried contacting quite a few different people with no luck. I know chances are slim I'll find one on here, but it doesnt hurt to try. I'm located in Nova Scotia, Canada. I know postage would be a lot but I'd be payin...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

Been out in the garage for a little bit lately, and got most of the RHD stuff done!, Pedal box is cut + welded/braced properly, dash is cut + tacked together awaiting to be fully welded, firewall just needs a tad bit more done but it sure is coming together. It's amazing that you can do all this by ...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

PO probably just shortened the stock strut for a shorter insert. You'd have to measure bits and pull them apart before we could really give you any info on it. 240SX stuff has been done before, threads here, more info at Ratsun. Is the Subaru R160 LSD? 'Cause there isn't going to be any difference ...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

Thanks for the input on the bracing guys, I figured I'd keep it since it's already in haha. and thanks for the info on cells, I guess I'll still have to figure something out there. Well, I figured something out. I'm going to make this car a little bit more different haha. I'm also throwing in a RHD ...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

It was done to stiffen it up since looking at it, there's not that much strength for the crossmember to begin with, so it was braced just to stiffen it up that much more haha. If I were to need to cut it out, I'd just slice a hole down the middle, and hammer the two sides until it just breaks off fr...

Re: My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

Sent the car off and got it back already! Seams are welded up for strength, crossmember cut + reversed + braced, holes filled under the hood, holes filled for side mirrors on the doors(to make room for fender mirrors), and new taillight panel welded in! Now my plan is to grind down the welds + use b...

Re: My 71 510 budget build

The rust along the bottom is almost non-existant. First time I got under the car, I was amazed at how little rust there was haha. The only rust is where the rocker + the quarters meet, and the taillight panel. (and the supertrapp exhaust which was soon cut off haha) Well this just happened to show u...

My 71 510 budget SR20DET build

Well, I purchased this 510 a couple months ago with the idea of getting it running and driving it as-is, after some needed mechanical work done such as new brakes/brakelines/clutch master cyl + slave cyl/etc etc. Kept getting problems with small things a couple days ago and said screw it. Ended up t...

New guy from Atlantic Canada

Hey guys, Figured I'd join these forums so I can do some creeping and try and gain some knowledge. I just picked up a 1971 510 2door, (along with 71 2dr parts car). Rare find in Nova Scotia, to find a 510 with little to no rust. I'm not new to the car scene but am excited I finally got a 510! Some o...
