I'm confused second time I posted and smart remarks get posted.Just looking at my post in introductions and the the above me seem to offend me , I have had 4 Datsun 510s since the early 80s not a new jack.Looking for local eastern dimers that could have parts for my mods like I said and probably or could refer me to locals for suspension parts,brake parts,or people on east coast who custom parts.

I dont know, was that meant intentionally to ASHTC510.Listen if it wasn't, I'm wrong but looks like it is intensional.

Hey ASHTC510 I'm in Southern NH. If your looking for parts as in suspension, front swaybar for the KA24DE swap and big brakes FUTOFAB.com is your best friend. He's in Dunbarton, NH in the Manchester area. Exactly what are you looking at for suspension and brake mods? Like SR installs, your going to have to modify your front crossmember and trans mount or buy them already built,,but personally if you have the means I'd mod what you have and save a ton of $$$.

Welcome,

I am in Maryland in the D.C. Suburbs. I have parted out many cars over the years and have lots of good parts to sell.

PM me with a list of what you need.

Missed this early, but I am up in the Boston area. But find my way down in RI and CT from time to time.

Don't have many parts I'm willing to part with... stock pilling them for myself hahaha... Parts are definitely harder to come by locally out here, but they are available.

Here is a stock pile of parts up here in the NE that look to be all in pretty good shape. If I had the spare cash right now Id be grabbing a rear crossmember or two... and maybe some spare front struts... looks like there is a front crossmember as well if you want a spare one to flip for your KA swap.

I just did a KA swap in my dime, although did it a little differently then most... going with carbs and a custom rear sump oil pan. Ill post a link below to my thread for reference. Also Duke's thread is probably the best KA swap ive ever seen... wish I got to see it in person before leaving Cali.

Your best bet now that youve introduced yourself would be to start a build thread and post some photos. That way people can help you along the way as you run into issues.
