Is it possible to mix and match gears in a 71C trans?

11 May 2017 - 07:41 AM

I would like to make a close ratio gear box for autoxing.   Seems the secondary gears are cast onto the shaft?  Well a boy can dream about a race gear box.  


Has anyone ever seen this before

Found this on my coupe strut tower, I've never seen them stamped before.  Have you guys?

Narrowed rear control arms

06 March 2017 - 08:28 PM

Sam and I are going to make some narrowed rear control arms.  We haven't nailed down a design yet, if anyone has any ideas they would like to share we are all ears.  They are going to be 2" narrower per side.  We want to retain the original control arm bushings and bolt pattern for the drum brakes (since even if your car is upgraded to disks the brackets will still work) and use the same stub axle.  We will however be deleting the stock spring perch.  Seems everyone runs coilovers these days.   Things I'm curious about.

 

1. does anyone have the rear bushing part number?  

 

2. Are they even still available from Nissan?  

 

3. I for some reason remember there being two different length inner bearing spacers.  Is that true?

 

 

 

These arms will allow me to run 13x8 +0 rims front and back with 225 45 13's.  Which would be bad ass!

YEAAHHHH!!!  Coupe Coupe Coupe Coupe!!!!!!   After riding in Rich's and Carter's coupes and seeing them drive around I've wanted one.  Big thanks to Carter for helping make this happen in more ways than one!  Carter and I actually have been working with an importer for I think over a year, and would you guess he found this one local on Craigslist!!!!  It was posted Friday, I got a frantic text with a link to the add. Of coarse like any Craigslist shopper I didn't read the add I just called him.  Guess what, I was the first caller and he promised to let me look at it first thing on Saturday.  Like good Datsun shoppers Carter drove us down in his Coupe :)  The plans are to just drive it and just do little things.  It runs and drives fine, stumbles sometimes but I think that's due to bad gas and hopefully will go away with some driving.  Carter named it due to the color which is interesting. haha  Here are some pictures of it.  

 

It's an interesting coupe due to it not being a SSS, it's also an Auto!  haha.    It's defiantly had some bad rust repair in the rockers, fenders and quarters,  the funny thing to me is the floors are nice and rust free.  Or at least they seem that way.  It does have a 620 ignition which I don't like.  Small stuff can be changed as I drive it.
