I read once that the steering gearbox from a Datsun B210 ( could have been a 610?) has a higher turn ratio than the stock Datsun 510 (70-73) gearbox, and that a direct swap is possible. Has anyone ever done this and how do you like the results?
Datsun 510 Steering Gearbox Swap

The B-210 box certainly contains some of the discontinued parts and bearing needed to rebuild a PL510 box, not sure if it will swap.... probably. The A10 ('78-'81 HL510) box will.
The 710 (and likely) the 610 box looks exactly like the 510 box.

I heard the later A10(say 78 510s ones fit )

Awesome. Thanks for the tips. I guess I should have said I'm looking for a "closer ratio" gearbox. I found some other articles online about it and will post them back here.
