I think my steering coupler has worn out (goes between gearbox and steering column).  Unable to locate a new one on the web.

 

Anyone know if a steering coupler from a different datsun vehicle will fit?

 

Thanks in advance.

Might try a 510, they share the LCA's, TC rods, tie rods and almost the same crossmember.  Worth a shot.

The 510 uses a small U joint somewhat like those used on the 720.

 

The B-210 rubber coupling (or rag joint) is also common to the '77-'80 810, '77-'79 S10 (first gen 200sx) and the '80-'83 S110 (second gen 200sx).... same part.

 

 

 

If you mean something else say so.

Thank you for the information.  It is greatly appreciated.

 

Now I just have find one.

 

It is a rag joint style.  Between the column and gear box.

I made one once out of 3/8" thick rubber conveyor belt. Just used a drinking glass to draw the circle and drilled 4 holes for the bolts. It's still on the 620. It had a mixture of 720 column and D21 power steering box. The bolt patterns were not the same.
