  1. Drive shaft shop CV conversion doesn't fit!

    Richard.... They have not responded yet. Ill let you know. NewZed: with all do respect you have absolutely know idea the depth of conversation I have had with them and the extent of the problem. You cannot file the dust cap down and make this work, that's is a completely ignorant statement! This is a crappy design and machining problem, a fact that has been supported by other vendors that are highly respected in the Z community that have reached out to me in private in order to help me find a fix. You seem to think I'm some kind of dumbass that can't turn a wrench. I do not have the time to relay every communication I've had with them (DSS) to the hybrid community, just a general overview. Please quit trying to read between the lines. Respectfully, Jim

    That has been addressed twice by DSS with machined spacers the first was wrong and the second correct. The point of contact is the shoulder / dust cap..... it is too wide and 3mm too tall and contacts the outside edge of the upright housing. This was supposed to machined down to spec of OEM to match the OEM axle I sent them on the 3rd attempt however it was not done properly and remains a point of contact. I spoke with DSS yesterday along with multiple emailed pictures and an offer to send them an upright and another axle for reference..... they will get back to me today on how to approach this yet again. In the mean time, checkered Joe has reached out to me (great guy by the way) and has an alternate solution for me if DSS can’t or won’t fix the problem and returns my money. I will know more later today. I will admit that lee at DSS was very apologetic and seems willing to fix the problem..... I’m just tired of doing this repeatedly and really want my car back. My race this weekend is obviously a bust. Jim
  3. Clearence Issue

    That’s pretty odd. I’m not to familiar with johns kit but can’t you shim the mounts and raise the front a bit?

    The outside flange contacts the housing. It has assembled all 4 times correctly. DSS has already repeatedly admitted that the stub axle is not machined properly that is why they have repeatedly try to fix the problem. Unfortunately the problem has yet to be fixed. I am still working on a solution with DSS. And yes, when I say it’s binding I mean the wheel won’t spin. Thank you for your points of help...... this can’t be fixed until the product is machined to OEM spec.
  5. Drive shaft shop CV conversion doesn't fit!

    No you are incorrect. DSS sold me the parts and advertises them as a bolt on solution used on “many Z’s all over without problem”. The stub axle has never fit in any way shape or form. I am on my 4th attempt to send them back and again have them machined to spec to match stock stub axle. The issue at hand is that when the stub axle is installed it binds against the housing and won’t turn. I’m not sure how much more information/communication I can give them aside from sending an axle with instructions to make a copy. I support product from vendors on a regular basis and after 30 years of building cars I know that a little modification is typically necessary to make things work, however $2600 and 4 months with numerous emails and pictures with measurements from me since I placed my order and they still can’t get it right. My frustration comes from providing them everything to make the right product and them sending me something different repeatedly. Thanks for your input, I don’t mind be reminded to stay the course or not to lose focus blaming others unfairly, but this situation is all on them. I’m still waiting for reply from DSS I’d they wish to try again to get this right. Thanks for the picture provided, I’ll pass that along as well. Respectfully, Jim

    In the event that DSS doesn’t come through with a solution..... anybody know Joe for modern/checkered? I can’t get ahold of him. I have not heard back from Whitehead performance either. Thanks. Jim

    The axles are machined wrong again and continue to bind in the upright housing. I’m done and asking for a full refund. DSS has no idea what they are doing with Datsuns. Absolutely do not buy the this product. Starting over again. What a bummer. Jim

    Thanks so much Richard. It’s worth a try I guess. I will contact DSS and see if they have any interest in making this right. If they do, I’ll contact you with the information. Again, thanks for going above and beyond to help me out. Jim

    Yep, sadly even Lee who I thought was in my corner screwed me too. I hope and pray these work or I’m going to start from scratch.
  11. fantastic work.... get her fired up for spring.
  12. Drive shaft shop CV conversion doesn't fit!

    Well I finally got my parts back today..... I will know this weekend if they actually fit this time. Drive shaft shop said they would pre-assemble everything to minimize my time getting my car back together...... but they didn’t! They only managed to press in the wheel studs half ass crooked so I have something more to fix aside from pressing on the bearings for a third time. Buyer beware- drive shaft shop is one of the worst experiences I’ve had in a very long time. Jim

    Thanks Richard. At this point I just need them to get started in the latest "fix". I'll keep you posted. Jim

    It's been over 2 months since I started my axle swap...... DSS has been closed since the Friday before Christmas and according to UPS tracking no one was around to accept my shipment the Wednesday through Friday before they closed. My parts are sitting in some ups holding bin waiting for DSS to return and hopefully, after 4 trys, get these stub axles right and sent to me so I can put my car back together and aligned. No doubt I will miss my upcoming race in January based on past experiences and current time lines. Frustrating to say the least. Jim
