Description

Hello!  I am running a pre-82 280zx 5-speed (71B) in a 510 race car.  Currently rebuilding the transmission and looking for a reverse idler gear (23 tooth).  My next race is coming up in 3 weeks, so I'm pretty desperate. 🙂

Recommended Questions

Is yours destroyed OR just kinda chewed up?  Almost ALL reverse gears will have obvious wear cuz no synchro & so many people jamb into reverse without making a complete stop and/or double clutching or going from a forward gear TO reverse etc etc.  We will use an obviously worn gear in a rebuild............biggest drawback is it can be a little noisy, but only in reverse.  I will look, as I have two Z/ZX parts tranny's, but neither will be perfect by any means!

 

Are you going to The Hawk at Road America?  We will be there with two 240Z's!

Hi TJ,  thanks!  I haven’t seen it, but the person who tore down the trans says he can probably dress it up a bit. The car never jumped out of reverse. 

 

I wont be at the Hawk - I do the Pittsburgh Vintage GP. But I am thinking of doing the VSCDA race at Grattan in August. 

 

Dying to to get the car to Elkhart Lake, though. I bought it from Dean Champeau. 

 

Lobbying to make Datsun marque of the year for the Pittsburgh race - bring your two!

Saw SteveE on the510realm says he has for you!  I DO have two, but both are typically obviously worn......they WOULD work, but they would have a level of noise/hum that scares people.  If Steve can't help, let me know!

If it doesn't pop out of reverse & doesn't make to nasty of a noise.....leave it!

 

At Pittsburgh, go say hello to John Ross.......he bought his blue/yellow Z from a local friend & his silver Z from us!

 

Grattan is an AWESOME small track!  I lived in Kalamazoo & Holland for 22 years, went to all of the Grattan & Gingerman vintage events!

 

I know Dean!  He always has nice cars!

 

If you get to Road America, maybe ask Dean what rear end gear ratio you should run.........it is a FAST HIGH SPEED track!  Last year our driver hit 148mph in his L28 powered 240Z (Ninja green & Subie blue).  We are aiming to break 150mph this year.............

 

Check us out online & on Facebook (FB much more active!)!

All reverse gears are chewed to some degree. Dress the leading edges and leave it. You don't need reverse in a race anyway. How many miles does a car with 100k have on a reverse gear? 30-50 miles??? that's less than 1/2000 of the rest of he transmission.
