    Recently acquired Datsun 810/Maxima help please?!

    The engine should be an L24e. Almost identical to the 280Z L28 with fuel injection. The 5-speed manual is somewhat rare for those cars. I think you can use a 5-speed from a 280ZX if you ever need to replace the transmission.

    Wrecking Yard Report

    Pick n Pull, Lakewood (Tacoma) Washington 1985 200SX 4cyl https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/JN1PS24S0FW019771 This car probably has a CA20e engine and R180 rear diff, 4.11 ratio from what I remember about the 200SX Lakewood has a high flow of incoming vehicles. They go through their parts cars as fast as needed to bring in new inventory so if you want parts, get there fast! I've seen cars come and go in just two weeks.

    The "post image" website address changed slightly, but I think this video still shows you how the process is done.

    The frame rails are simply wider apart, the engine compartment is longer, and the cab is longer on the 1987-2005 Hardbody and Frontier. It just seems like a really bad fit to try to mount the 620 body onto those frames and then shorten the wheelbase of a Frontier. Now, the 2006+ Frontier is out of the question. They are just big trucks and go even further with their size. I'd say go for a 720 4x4. The 720 kingcab is a longer cab than the 620 kingcab but not by too much. You might still run into the issue of the rear wheels being too far back. Hopefully by only 3-4 inches. Certain years of 720 have different gears. If you want to cruise at higher speed, get the trucks that had a 3.9 or 3.7 gear ratio if possible. (those might only be in the 2wd) Then take the underpowered Z24 out and install a KA24DE from a 1998-2005 Frontier. Then again, some people do take the 620 body and drop it onto a Chevy 4x4 truck frame. :) I don't know anything about the different transfer cases on the 720 4x4 but maybe the later years had better quality ones...

    Attention DatsunMike or any other Datsun guru

    It sounds like your 1977 truck is getting a modern drivetrain and suspension. You said you want your 1978 to have functionality of a modern 4x4 so does that just mean you want a fuel injected engine, modern 4wd transmission, independant suspension in front, and a normal solid axle in rear? It sounds like adding items to your existing 1978 truck would work better. The 720 truck is the only model that is almost the same size frame and body. After that, the Hardbody and Frontier were a bit larger. The most recent version of the Frontier is nearly the size of a full size truck from a few years back. Is a 1980s 720 4x4 modern enough? I guess you could run the drivetrain from something like that but use the KA24DE fuel injected engine from a Nissan Frontier. That might give you want you're after.

    If you want to go for a good exhaust sound, the L28 with Webbers and headers sounds great.

    Datsun swap meet in Everett!

    Over the years, the 620 truck was plentiful in wrecking yards. I would guess that a lot of L-series parts are from old trucks.
  10. Who has this many parts? Not even Jeff had this much of a stockpile the last time I was at his house. Could it be Frank? https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/pts/d/datsun-510-parts/6761937726.html
  11. The stove is for warming up the interior of a 280Z that doesn't have a working heater.
  12. I'm overdue for an oil change so I couldn't make it, however, if the date changes maybe I'll have time to get ready. I don't even know if the heater works in my 280Z

    R200 LSD options/setup

    I believe you can buy an aftermarket LSD kit meant for the short nose R200 and use it in the long nose R200 as long as the long nose you have is from the last of the Z31. (1987-89) Those will have the 12mm bolts inside and match up with what also came in the S13. I tried to find an article or video to confirm this for you but I came up short. Beyond that I don't have any good suggestions on 1.5 or 2 way. I don't have any experience with LSD. I just bought a factory Nissan one recently but haven't even gone through it yet.
