  1. Seems you have a "Know it all" machinist on your hands. The welds are a uniform all the way around, at most being maybe x-amount of mg out of balance.... 2cm from the center of rotation. I'm surprised he's worried about that on the axles, when there is more severity of out-of-balancing on the wheel/tire combination. Not to mention the back end of my Z is smooth as butter. But no one ever wants to be liable, which stands to reason. I had the same "safety" issue when I wanted to have a driveshaft shop weld on new universals on the steering rod. Sorry it didn't work out for you, good luck!
  2. I pm'd you, but if anyone else is wondering the same thing, YES. I simply asked the machinst to modify the outer casing (ie. cut off the spilnes and add a flange) How/where he got the flange from, is unknown to me. Hope this helps,
  3. Your certain that they are in fact 16x8 +10 offset? Is that what it read on the sticker in side the wheel? In the front; With lowering springs, you will for sure need a spacer for the +10 offset. Although for the rears you shouldn't, I mean it's really tight. But it shouldn't be way off. Can you post some pictures?
  4. Haha that's really neat. They should do the same with a Zcar!
  5. I've rebuilt two 5speeds so far, one being the 240sx, the other 280zx. While they are pressed on pretty good, it's pretty easy to tap them on and off. A gear puller can help in this situation as well. I found with putting new bearings and syncro's in, that the hard part was remembering HOW it all went together, not actually doing the work.
  6. You won't need an adapter, what your going to end up doing is use the back half (gearbox) of the 240sx, and use 280z bell housing. (The 280z bell housing will bolt up directly to your L24 block.) Here is some information on this topic: http://www.atlanticz.ca/zclub/techtips/240sxtransmissioninstall/index.html If you still need help, PM me, for I have recently done this swap. Cheers EDIT: You will also have to do some mounting modifications, it's just some fab work.
  7. Don't you mean 1:1 scale?
  8. Looking forward to see how it comes out. Keep us posted!
  9.

Average price is about $450 Which is still very good considering that they have about 10,000-30,000 miles on them. And a brand new (o miles) r180 LSD differential from Subaru is about $2100. EDIT: Sorry for double post.
  10. What?! I got mine off ebay, not even a year ago, axles as well.
  11. Okay, let us know if the front center cap fits with the spacer
  12. For your first question, yes it is. My differentials over the time of owning the car went from the original open 3.36 r180 --> open 3.90 r200 --> Subaru "k" r180 clutch type LSD 3.90. Second question; Your talking about swapping in the Subaru r180 for your original Datsun r180 in a s30? In fact I believe it would be somewhat easier going from the stock Datsun r180 to Subi because you already have the r180 mustache bar. Also the Datsun r180 driveshaft flange should swap out with the Subaru one. So there is no issue there. Third question: If it's from an STi, and it's fairly new(as in 2002 or greater) then it should be an LSD. Also it would be in the best interest of the seller to state that's it's an LSD in order to achieve maximum $ for it. So it's most likely that the seller will state it. I believe the type of LSD unit changes throughout the years. ie. Mine is a 2004 which consist of an clutch type LSD unit. In 2007+ it's a helical unit.
  13. Wow I didn't even think about that. I suppose they would, it probably depends on the spacer you go with. The extra 5mm could really make a difference. Are you planning on going with spacers on the front?
