Good vids!  That the easiest I've ever seen a torsion bar come out!

 

The clips are all short enough, you could make one vid.  PM if you want to do that, but don't have a way.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

Not sure what happened.  I didn't delete it or even touch it yet, but it's gone.  I had kept it from being public, but I don't know why it disappeared.  I'll reupload it and send you another link.

Nice work. Makes it easy and clear!


If it eats gas and blood type is measured by weight, it's good by me!

I reindexed my torsion bars in my 521. I turned the bars 2 notches towards the engine. Put everything back together....and front sits higher now. Obviously I went the wrong way with turning the bars. Repulled bars and turned them away from the engine. But now the adjusters at the other end of the bars (end that is bolted back in place) is too far out to bolt. How do I get around this?
Now taking sponsors!

Put a Jack under the control arm and lift it. Bar should turn.
