    Where's my Photo Gallery?

    My gallery is gone, I just looked at all 62 listed and Mine is not there. I noticed that some old timers albums now say zero images? granted it probably been a few years since I added pictures but now it is gone. was this when we had to change systems?

    Need 8mm wheel spacers

    Looking for 8mm wheel spacers for the front of my 280Z, Don't want cheap slotted lug nut holes want the correct 4x114.3/4x4.5 holes. I will take 6mm, 7mm, 9mm but prefer 8mm. 10mm might get me some fender rubbing but will do as a last resort. Looked online and almost anything that had the right hole spacing was for the Nissan 66.1 bore, the Datsun was a 73mm bore. OH need longer studs also Please PM me or email me Thanks, Greg

    R200 CLSD Disc repair kit or OBX

    I made a tool to measure the break-away torque using the old R-200 diff stub axles a piece of Uni-strut and a large nut welded to the uni-strut. I elongated the holes in the Uni-strut to bolt up the stub axles. Actually the hole spacing works out so I can test again later at the wheel studs later once it is all installed. The test of just the CLSD assembly as shown in the pictures was 62Lbs. I then used my torque wrench and started at 25Lbs and increased it in 5 pound increments until I reached the point where it turned the axle then backed off a pound at a time to the point where it no longer turned the axle.

    Here s a series of pictures of the removal and rebuild, first the teardown I reloaded the diff in the order I posted earlier, here is how much the last spring plate stuck out over the housing. I oiled up the plates, clutches, and spring plates and attempted to put the cover on, it took me three times to get it on, i used bolts through the ring gear holes to SLOWLY and GENTLY compress the cover on. When I felt the cover giving resistance that seemed like pinching the tabs I stopped and started over again. Finally on the third try it compressed all the way without the spring plate tabs getting out of alignment. Picture of bolts used, Half turn of each bolt until it closed

    Thanks Jon, I'll try and get it together tonight, it is the last spring disc that will need to stay put over the tang slots as I squeeze the cover down slowly and pray it stays aligned. Not sure what you mean by flipping the housing, I flip it to get the first set of plates in then flip it back put the center section in and then the stack of plates and the cover? I'll post some pictures.

    Finally getting around to rebuilding the differential and encountered something weird the diff had NO Spacers???? I am going to try and put the cover back on and it seems like there is not enough room for everything to fit. I have only the old clutch plate left over if I follow the sequence of : spring disk spring disc new clutch plate new clutch plate new clutch center section new clutch plate new clutch plate new clutch spring disc spring disc I did a trial assembly and the last spring plate is not in the tab slot, I am guessing that I am going to have to use 3 bolts in the ring gear holes to squeeze the cover on and hope I can compress the spring plates enough for the last spring plate to go in the tab? this seems awfully difficult to do without that last spring plate moving around but I guess with enough attempts it will go together. Having no spacers to remove sound normal to you? I looked up the factory manual and they do show a spacer. It might be possible the previous owner had it apart some time and removed the spacers? what for and why did my diff seem fine until it developed a clunk?
  15. Well I haven't had any luck finding Axxis/PBR Ultimate pads so now I am looking at Porterfield R4S pads. searched and a thread said AP272-R4S But I can't find that pad for sale anywhere. Searched Porterfield site and downloaded a 2010-2011 catalog and the list a AP230-R4S for all 240SX rear applications been able to find a few online but nothing on Ebay? Can someone confirm I have the right pads before I order them? Thanks, Greg
