  1. Got removed. Updated link because Tom Waits
  2. Another debt they owe, or lest you forget, they are also Canadian:
  3. The 75 and later B210 uses an H150, I ran a 510 sedan driveshaft for my B210 63a swap with later 77 rearend. The H150 uses a 45 x 54 mm with an inner circle of 57 mm. As far as I know the R160 and wagon flanges are the same as swapping a sedan driveshaft into a wagon is done when using the longer 5 speed. Only the B110 and 74 B210 use the smaller flange for the H145. However, I am seeing some conflicting data online on the H190 as having a 50x60 mm flange (maybe different non-510 wagon axle), so I'm going to go measure mine when I can to confirm. Edit: Crawled under the car and measured mine and it appears to be 45x54.
  4. So that means you could use any 510 manual driveshaft then, not just goon. Or you could even use a 75' or later B210 automatic driveshaft.
  5. Check out their 2014 Good Company album also.
  6. Can you explain why you require the wagon driveshaft over the sedan? I have a H190 in my 1200 and a stumpy trans the same length as the 63 series (which I have in my B210) and by my measurements you should need a shorter than sedan length driveshaft due to the slightly longer H190 housing. I thought I would be needing to get my stock 510 sedan (similar to B210 auto driveshaft) shortened. So I would be really interested to know how the wagon driveshaft will fit? Or is this with the assumption that it will be shortened, in which case why does it need to be a wagon driveshaft then? What am I missing here? Edit: As far as I am aware the 510 manual driveshafts vary in length not in spline or rear mount setup. From some searching: The stock 2dr and 4dr sedan driveshaft is 42 & 9/16th or 42.5625" The stock goon is 48 & 7/8ths or 48.875
  7. Datsun Guy with a B210 = DGUY210, a name I came up with long before Ratsun for some other forum. But also those letters also happen to be part of my name too so it had some relevance.
  8. The B210 front suspension is extremely similar to that of a 510's with only very minor differences. Short answer is pretty much all the 510 front suspension stuff works with a B210. When it comes to finding B210 stuff, I've found thinking of the B210 as a short 510 wagon helps. Note: B210 only! The 120Y is very different.
  9. The mechanical fuel pump is relatively robust and unlikely to fail spontaneously. I'm not saying it might not have gone bad, but I would consider that lower on the probability list, especially as they tend to leak rather than just fail. Most likely would be a blockage in the fuel line. An easy way of blowing it out I've found is to use a piece of gas hose hooked to the metal line and a standard tire air inflator. Basically, put the longer gas hose on the metal line and then use the tire inflator with your hand and hold it on the fuel line to push air into the tank and blow out the crap. You can test the pump itself by throwing some gas line into a container with some gas and hooking it up to the pump and pulling off the line to the carb and crank the engine and see if any gas comes out.
  10. Sweet. I run uncut also so this is great.
  11. Per what Datzenmike says is correct. I actually did NOT adjust my steering box for this reason and that with the other bits replaced I didn't really feel like it needed to be messed with. However, I have also had the car for 20 years and I'm the second owner so I know what abuse it has been through and what maintenance it has had. I agree with Tom1200 I suspect the Idler arm is a large part of it for slop, I did my balljoints mostly as I was already under there replacing stuff and my boots were completely shot. If you get into to replacing major bits of your suspension I strongly suggest measuring the lengths of anything attached to a joint that is adjustable before you take it apart. I was lazy and just used a set of clamps to measure and then adjust the replaced pieces to the same length to get the adjustment in the right ballpark to do a realignment.
  12. I'm feeling old now with realizing Metalmonkey's 210 wheel fuckery was 9 years ago.
  13. For a 1200 the mklotz brake upgrade is much better than the 280zx for front weight, overall costs and ease of finding parts, but not a lot of options for a B210 except swapping to hard to find 1200 stuff and then upgrading. For practical purposes I would argue the 280ZX strut is probably the best overall upgrade for his B210 that won't be super expensive, difficult, or hard to find.
  14. Lol, Doug. Why am I not surprised. Good luck with your move.
  15. Replace the ball joints, Idler arms, and any kind of movable joint on the front suspension, Rockauto should have most of the parts. This makes a huge difference in the feeling of looseness in the steering wheel. I'd repack your front bearings too while you had everything apart anyways but that's just me. The steering box can be adjusted to have some of the backlash taken out (same as 510 steering box, I'm sure someone has a tutorial around here somewhere or see Datsun1200 site). Front suspension on a B210 is very very similar to a 510 so any suspension hop-up parts for the 510 will usually work. Go to the 280zx struts, they really make a big difference in braking and will let you run larger wheels as they do pull in the strut about a 1/2 inch per side I believe. The caliper can be shaved to run some 13 inch rims, results might vary. Always remember to readjust alignment, even if with a tape measure, on your wheels after any suspension adjustments.
  16. I currently run 280zx 15 inch +12 rims on my 74 4dr B210. I have an excel sheet I designed and empirically tested to determine max wheel size for 13, 14, 15 inch wheels. Note: I have 280zx front struts and rolled rims, so I would suggest a slightly more conservative approach than the max sizes if you are running stock equipment. Basic rule is keep total tire diameter under 24 inches and you should be fine. Max front with trimming inner edge of fender is 23.9 inches and may still rub a bit at full lock for the rear it is 24.7 and may rub when fully loaded. For 13 inch wheels with stock struts: The 2 bolded choices 185/70 and 175/70 are safe sizes and are the most common when I last searched (granted 2011), sizes are ordered by price for tires of that size so are out of date but should still be reasonable. The 2 choices listed in italics and strikethrough are only suitable for rear tires under special circumstances: avoid. Total Height (in) Height From Rim Wheel Size Height Aspect mm in 13 23.2 185 70 129.5 5.1 13 22.8 155 80 124.0 4.9 13 22.6 175 70 122.5 4.8 13 22.1 165 70 115.5 4.5 13 21.7 185 60 111.0 4.4 13 19.9 175 50 87.5 3.4 13 22.2 195 60 117.0 4.6 13 21.5 215 50 107.5 4.2 13 22.7 205 60 123.0 4.8 13 21.4 165 65 107.3 4.2 13 24.0 175 80 140.0 5.5 13 24.7 185 80 148.0 5.8 13 21.0 225 45 101.3 4.0 13 21.3 235 45 105.8 4.2 13 21.9 225 50 112.5 4.4 13 21.0 255 40 102.0 4.0 Also, I would suggest checking out this prior thread:
  17. I've got a Z shifter in my B210 (63a dogleg), needed the shorter length as the stock one wouldn't work. Edit: Looks like I used a 280zx shifter and flipped the plastic bit with spring in the center of the rod that holds the pin upside down to make it work. Very old pic showing the shorter shifter.
  18. Dormitory seems to be the best translation and that character in Kanji matches the Han character and the phonetic pronunciation of of the word "liao2". So I wonder if the colloquial usage would be the same as the English usage of "housing" which would make sense for a metal car part in this context. Kanji 寮 :dormitory, hostel, villa, tea pavillion Han 寮 :shanty, hut, shack Sources: https://jisho.org/search/寮 %23kanji https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/寮 https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/寮#Chinese https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/寮#Japanese Thanks for the puzzle! This was fun.
  19. The character is Chinese, but from Japan that would make it the Kanji system but the meanings are usually related. So I asked my wife who reads Chinese and she recognized it as "le-ow" (super poor phonetic there) which translates to "small poorly built house" but she said it actually can have multiple meanings so still a bit of a riddle. My best guess is it probably translates to something like "structure assembled".
  20. But sry-iously there is less than a vas deferens in the development of the male and female urogenital system and structures and their origins. Paradime is quite correct in his description.
