  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 lu
  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. Haha that's really neat. They should do the same with a Zcar!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Looking forward to see how it comes out. Keep us posted!

  8. What?! I got mine off ebay, not even a year ago, axles as well.
  9. 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 fair
  10. Here is a more complete write-up for the Subi diff and axle swap, and it's in it's own thread so it'll be easier to find. If you come across a Subaru STi differential and axles and are considering swapping them into an s30 like I did, here is what needs to be done: Before spending any money I made sure that this setup was even remotely possible. Because I planned on using the STi axles with the STi Diff, I knew there were no issues on the axles-to-Diff side, with splines and what not. his is because the Axles and differential are from the same year (2004) STi. I also noticed that
  11. Well I have the z31 axle to 240z hub (25 spline) adapters and extra rebuilt z31 axles. But thats all, so guess I'm no help.
  12. Your links to modern motor sports aren't working. What adapters are you looking for? What axles are you using?
