R200 CV type pinion flange

Postby broke » 21 Aug 2016 04:19

I've seen a car on here that used a CV joint type pinion flange for the R200 diff. I've searched but can't seem to find it again. Apparently they're really good for keeping driveshaft vibrations down.

Anyway, since my R200 CLSD is being rebuilt at present and I live in the land of cheap RB powered cars I decided to pick up one of these CV pinion flanges and the driveshaft that goes with it. Trouble is, the pinion flange doesn't fit through the hole in the crossmember. Is it possible that there is a "large" and "small" version of this flange? Or am I missing something totally obvious here? - because I find it hard to believe that the last guy who did this actually installed his diff with no pinion flange and the did it up in the crossmember. But then again, maybe he did..... What say you, 510 Realm?

GTR R32 flange can be found on many JDM cars and is still available from Nissan.

Yes you do have to install the flange after the diff is installed in the cross member.

I didn't know it was still available from Nissan. What's the part number?

No, but I think you'll find it's 38210-10M15. I could be wrong though.

Well it turns out that there is a "large" and "small" version of these flanges. Here is the one I have compared to a standard R200 UJ flange, you can clearly see how much larger the area that the seal rides on is.

And here you can see how it's meant for a larger diameter pinion shaft than the long nose R200 one

The guy did say at the time that it was off a R33 GTR N1 but I just assumed he was BS'ing. Maybe there was some truth to what he was saying after all? I can't find any information online about them so I'm just guessing.
