That’d be great! I love getting a notification every time somebody posts about how they are going to put a rotory with a rx7 gxsle rear end because factory rear disks but they can figure out what tranny and pedal box to use.



Shots fucking fired

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

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!

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.

#1542370 Datsun B210 - LZ23, 5 spd. The Definitive B210 swap thread.

Posted by mhub91 on 27 January 2018 - 10:53 AM

For some reason I haven't updated this thread in a while.

 

 

I hope that my research / work helps others in the future.

 

Here's a few facts about swapping in an L20 (lz23 in my case...) into a "B".......

 

- 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.

 

- L series engine with sidedraft carbs WILL fit. Note I have a 2 pc. side draft intake manifold that doesn't go out straight out from the head, but instead has a step-up (if that doesn't make sense, refer to pics in previous posts).

 

- L series exhaust manifold DOES NOT properly fit (kind of...) when using a 510 crossmember. The engine sits too far forward and the manifold down pipe will interfere with the steering arm. I'm using a square port manifold so a combination of a different manifold may work. I also tried to use the short tube header offered on ebay. This may be usable if you cut the collector short. You'll need to play with this a bit.

 

- When using a 510 xmember with factory mounts and rubber isolaters, the engine sits approximately 5" forward from the firewall. This is problematic if plans are to race or autocross the car. The engine has too much over hang on the front struts, potentially causing over steer or weight distribution issues.

       a. No room for a large radiator
       b. no room for clutch fan

=

- Must cut out the "radiator hump / mount" from core support. Trimming along the crease of the bend will give ample room.

       a. Use a VW MK1 Rabbit radiator. Must make mounts.

 

- I am using a 71B 5 spd from a 720 pickup. This is what was provided with my swap. So, I used it.

       a. When using the 510 crossmember and stock mounts, the longtail 5 spd is sufficient. but there are necessary modifications.

           1. must make a custom trans crossmember. 

           2. must have a customer length driveline. Datsun drivelines have staked ujoints and are typically not serviceable. I chose to have a custom driveline made with serviceable ujoints.

               Note: when using 510 xmember, stock mounts and a long tail transmission, the driveline will be 42" center-to-center.

               Note: H150 differential flange is the same as a H165. So, use any L series driveline yoke that is L series and/or H150 / H165 rear flange.

 

- If your "B" was originally a 4spd, the clutch slave cylinder is on the driver side. 71B and 63A 5spds have the slave cyl is on the passenger side. You'll need a new clutch line
      - Will a 510 clutch line work(?)

 

- L series alternators using internal regulator -- remove the B's ext. regulator the same way you would a 510. Be sure to remove / disable the choke relay or you will have a voltage draw.

 

- Swap ignition to driver side and remove points setup if so equipped.

Everytime my wife hears a crying baby, she thanks me for getting snipped.

I don't want to get snipped. I'm a gambling man.


#1540583 b210 relay

My 1976 B210 does not have that relay, it is equipped with EGR and a Catalytic converter. Looks like you have a 1978 B210 with electronic ignition. Nice.

#1540213 B210 Rollcall

Posted by mhub91 on 14 January 2018 - 05:32 PM

well guess what folks? did a compression check various readings, but me and exboss mechanic checked everything again and und out that someone did a incorrect valve adjustment, probably to compensate for push rod tubes that were going bad, so we reset the valve lash setting to cold specs according to manual and sticker under hood and boom fired right up and started, god im glad that it started and runs now another issue is no lights, maybe bad switch or fuse/relay

 

 

Glad to hear!

Nice work. That's a decision full of future regret.
