Well my truck has been taken down to 2040lbs with me in there. Its fast. Ive left astovk evo 8 behind diesel trucks. Few v8s. I was toying with a new camaro ss the other day. Kept side to side with him up to the top of 4th about 104mph. Hit 5th and was left it lacks the umpff after that but i am impressed on how fast it is.

Wow...104 mph in a Datsun truck...that is stupid fast for sure...can I assume the suspension isn't all stock anymore is it??....

Ive maxed it out at 134mph. Um it has coilovers on all 4 corners, 4 link ball joint disk brakes and plenty more.

Are you sure its a 36mm? I cant find one anywhere, it goes 30,32,34,38mm. Also, the ears on the transmission that you recommend cutting off, isn't that there the bolt go for the rubber mount on the trans?

Im sure 34 mm will work fine. And no. Those tabs are absolutely useless on the 521. They bolt to nothing

Did you have to create your own clutch hard lines? is that the stock 521 clutch slave?

Use the stock slave and lines. The clutch arm should be in about the same position as the original one. 

The KA slave cylinder is angled and hits the torsion bar (at least on a 620)

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!"

There are a couple different KA slave cylinders. I'm pretty sure they all interchange, but have different bleeder and hose connection locations.

Make sure your MAF is in good condition or it will become a pain in the ass easy to fix by opening it up and soldering the pins ( they often crack there ) specially with Datsun vibrations
It has tons of power ! Love my swap

Carlos,

 

Mark (Blackmarkit) says, "You will need to clearence you transmission tunnel to get the transmission at the correct angle"
 

Your initial post says it doesn't need to be clearanced.  

 

So, which is it? ;)
