    Any ideas of the weight roughly of the 63A I may need to ship thanks.

    Gearbox Help

    Thanks both. I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure...! So head is saying go with the 71B as you've both said its a better box. Heart says Dogleg 63A just for the percieved cool that they have..? The guy with the 71 has several boxes availalble so I guess if I go that way I'd just have to make sure he can supply the complete thing including the missing key mentioned. Thanks again and I'll let you know how I get on ๐Ÿ™‚ JK

    Better option though than the FS5W63A dogleg though? I'm not looking for a racing car, just a very useable, driveable, reliable motor..? JK

    This is the other box in question. Earlier I think...? And funny that you say you prefer the earlier mid ratio box. Back before we all got into the S14a upgrade the S30 guys always looked for the later closer ratio boxes... Cheers JK

    Gearbox Help

    Thank you, So, in your experience and opinion, is this a "better" option than a FS5W71B which I also have the option to buy? Both boxes would cost me similar money and both are probably going to need some refurbishment perhaps. With a shortened drive shaft would the gearshift sit correctly then, and what modification is needed to the crossmember? This particular box which is in Sweden has been pulled from an S130 which I found odd in itself, it being essentially a four cylinder box. Why would someone put that into a six cylinder car? Although having asked someone else that question I was told that a 120Y auto often used the same box as a 300ZX TT...? Maybe the boxes could handle the power..? Much as a Morris Minor used the same box as a Rover 3500 V8.... Again, thanks for all the help ๐Ÿ™‚ JK

    Hi Guys, I've the opportunity to buy a 5 speed dog leg gearbox for my 510 restoration and just wondered if someone here could help me identify the box, and perhaps let me know the ratios, etc. Many thanks in advance.
  7. Well if you find they are not right fior your car let me know and I'll have them if they fit mine ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope they're the right ones for you though....! JK
  8. No not like that or no you dont have another picture? Was just curious as to the particular wheel, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ JK
  9. Without having to look through 127 pages of this thread, have you another picture of your steering wheel, looks really smart, obviously a Nardi but which one? Something like this one..?
  10. The inner gaskets on mine are still useable and the bolts are too, it is literally the gasket between the lights and the body. one is completely gone, but one could possibly be used as a template.....?

    Paint code label

    Hi again, Can someone tell me which of these is the most likely to be period correct for my 1970 510 I think its option 3 but not certain...? Thanks, JK
  12. Hi, I'm currently stripping down for a rebuild and looking to source bits I might need for when I put the car back together. Is there a source for the rear gaskets that sit between the taillights and the body? As you can see from the image mine are a tad perished...! Thanks, JK

    Seat Belts

    Great thread, with some great information here. I too will be looking at 3 point belts as I go through my rebuild and will be using the advice offered here to Martin. Martin, let me know if you buy the belts recommended or if you find a UK supplier of similar. I'd be interested to know how you get on. Cheers, JK
  14. Thanks chaps. the oโ€™reilly website appears down, but summit have a few. Whatโ€™s Z22 Mike..? Thanks again JK
  15. I'm just about to start the resto of my 510 and one of the things planned is moving battery and fule pump to rear of the car. I want a fule pump block off plate but the only one I can find to buy is the one at California Datsun (link below). https://www.californiadatsun.com/engine-accessories/fuel-pump-block-plate-for-l16-l18-l20b.html I've heard various reports about them from the UK so just wondered if you guys had an opinion and if you'd recommend the product or can point me in the direction of a good supplier of similar. In the scheme of things it's not a lot of money to buy one, but I do like to buy once and buy right if I am buying at all ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks, JK
