175/70/13 & 185/60/13......I would think either size should work for a 1200, maybe a lower profile is needed.  Where on the fender do they rub?  I have 185\55\14 on my grey coupe with no rub at all and stock suspension (been told it needs more low and also that it looks like a Hot Wheels). When I had 195's on it, they rubbed,

Sadly, I do not have an extra set of 12" slots but do have some steelies.

In Topic: orange B110 coupe

I have a thread on this same subject......but never finished it.

Some of the things I have tried/stumbled across:

1. Several years ago, took a 5spd out of a 210 Coupe....bolted it in the 1200 and drove it.  Did not switch t/o collar or anything.

2. Most recently tried the exact same thing and the nut on the slave cylinder had to be adjusted all the way out to barely make contact.

3. Most(if not all) 210's have a plate between the block and trans (about 1/8" thick) and I have not determined if the plate needs to go with the trans or be cast aside.  My thinking is that I did not use it on the one I did several years ago as the thin plate from the 56A trans (covers just the lower part where the flywheel is exposed) has larger holes drilled in it.

4. I now have at least 5 t/o collars, all from either 60 series or 56 series trannys, and each one appears to be different.

5. I have thought about putting a shim in the pivot point, but getting the pivot out seems to be a bitch.


I gave up doing this to the green car and am now trying on the gray car (had to have at least on Datsun to drive) and have come to a road block while looking to find that little copper gasket that goes between the slave cylinder and the rubber hose.  I know I have about 6 of them.....just trying to find them.


Very interested to see the pics of the washer you are getting.
