Sneak peek of what I've done with the car over the last couple months.

Still working on editing. I also had some camera issues which led to shit photos, so about half my photos didn't come out.

Or say fuck it and figure out how to put gas struts on it...   :thumbup:

 

I second this. I've been meaning to get on this for almost a year and just keep getting sidetracked.




#1509496 I'm glad I'm leaving California!

Posted by Son_of_a_Datsun_Guy on 11 August 2017 - 03:37 PM

To each their own. I love the freak show here in California. I never have a boring day. While I love other parts of the country, I can't imagine living anywhere else (maaaaybe Portland. I really like Portland). 

 

If you want to leave, fine. But don't go ragging on others who love life here just because you don't agree with it. 

 

Free country and all... and honestly, it's not like that parade is going to affect you in some significant way.




#1509492 Paging a Ratsuner, You're on Speedhunters!

Posted by Son_of_a_Datsun_Guy on 11 August 2017 - 03:30 PM

Speedhunters spotted a ratty 510 wagon in Washington (I know, that narrows it down... not). However, it's got an IRS swap and a set of Kenmari style headlights (now we're getting somewhere). If you know him, or he's not here to see this, shoot the link over to him (or her)!

Sooon... Lows are on their way, exhaust will wait until I get the 510 back on the road with it's new exhaust.

Decided Serenity deserved some real photos that didn't come from a phone.

#1500109 H190 Differentials (w/Pictures)

Posted by Son_of_a_Datsun_Guy on 29 June 2017 - 08:45 PM

A LSD diff that bolts into the housing for your wagon is not that hard to find, the down side is plan on paying $1200-$1500 for one. I found a deal on one for the 1200 coupe I race and it was still $1200. You can try roadster sites like 311s.org etc. there's lots of info on the net about swapping side gear on the truck diff.

I'd strongly encourage you to do you're research. The prices for the 23 spline diffs are getting steep and replacement parts getting scarce. If you have acces to a diff shop that does work for reasonable prices (read takes pity on poor Datsun guys) than having the truck axles redrilled for the bolt pattern you need may be an option.

The days of $600 units are gone..........sigh.

 

I've been hunting for a way to avoid needing to find a competition roadster diff. I think the truck axles sound interesting, just concerned about what gears I could find and what the actual LSD's break away point it like. I autocross, so I'd like it to actually be kind of low, probably lower than what the trucks were built with. 

 

I'm looking -- at the same time as searching for a Nissan unit -- at other options like RX7 axles (first gen GSL-E) and Corolla GTS units (AE86). Both of those have more "reliable" availability since you can search for specific years and trims to get the axles. Downside is they're both small, I believe the Mazda is a 7" housing and the Toyota is a 6.75" or something like that. 

 

While I only make about 140hp right now, I'm probably going to three link this axle once I find it and so I would like the unit to be strong enough to take around 250-300hp, if I ever feel like getting there. However, anything American or the H-233 (I suspect) will be HEAVY, which I would really like to avoid -- add lightness and all that.

Thank you! This helps narrow the search a lot, probably still going to need to hunt, but at least I have a year range to work with.

Okay, so I'm LSD hunting. Does anyone know if there was a definitive trim package that the mythical H-190 LSD came in?

 

If not I'm just going to have to junkyard hunt for one...

First photos I've gotten to so far. My finals are this week so I haven't had a lot of time to sort and edit stuff.
