I have these same wheels, but they're not finished like this. I want to make mine look similar. 
 
I traded off my Hayashi Commands for a Z22 core engine for a future build.

A few addenda if I may...

 

 

 PL510 (1968-'72) crossmember DOES bolt into a B210 without issue, I also used B210 lower control arms w/ the 510 xmember. This works and has no issues.

 

Using the 510 crossmember wih B210 control arms will widen your track slightly and add some negative camber (not necessarily a bad thing). Using 510 control arms fixes this issue and they bolt right in also. 

 

Datsun drivelines have staked ujoints and are typically not serviceable. I chose to have a custom driveline made with serviceable ujoints.
,
There are several Datsuns that do not use staked in joints. The 510, 610, 620, 240Z, 260Z, and 280Z use replaceable joints. The Zs would obviously be too short for a donor unless you plan to retube it, but the 510 and 620 could be used if cut down slightly and used with a long tail 5 speed. 
 
A good rule of thumb seems to be if it had an L-series, it had replaceable joints. If it had an A-series, it had staked in joints. I can't speak to whether the A10 or 710 used replaceable joints however. 
 
- Swap ignition to driver side and remove points setup if so equipped.

 

 

One can also run a longer coil wire and loom it in with the spark plugs wires as an alternative. 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.


This seems like an elaborate ploy to get me to say "I like the D".

The 710s are replaceable.


I had a '76 B-210 new and the U joint failed... got one from a wrecking yard.



Some old chevs injected plastic to fix the U joint in place, but you could knock them out and the replacements had C clips and the yokes were grooved to accept them.

I got an A10 driveline. It had staked joints.

 

I chose and A10 due to being L series and H165. Both the yoke and flange were compatible for my application.

I'm enjoying watching this build but I think I'll stick with the A series. I can't wait to see this at a meet. Or the 320.

 

Where did you get that valve cover?

Dat521....

Thanks for recognizing the valve cover. It Stokes my ego haha. It's exclusive to South AfricA(?). I had it imported and I got it powdered coated locally here in WA. Not to be a brag, but it was very expensive! I don't regret it. Haha.

And Mike, I will gladly let you drive it at Canby!

At times, I wish I would have left the A14 in it just so I could drive the damn thing....

I put the 510 wagon rearend (H190) in my 1200 sedan KA swap. Pretty much bolt-in, should fit the B210 pretty well.

Thanks for the tip.

 

FYI, it's roughly 2" wider, but is basically a bolt-in affair as he said. 

 

http://community.rat...310-and-others/

 

I have used (and abused) B210 rear ends with engines this strong or stronger in 1200s with no fuss. I do have a minor concern that in the heavier B210 your experience may vary.

Don't forget the tire acts like a fuse.
