510 parts for Nationals

Postby classicdat » Sun Sep 24, 2017 9:58 am

Just needing a few bits to sort my 1600 for the Nationals, so needing to get this sorted.
I'm after a 5 speed to increase the comfort of the trip and some lowering springs to ruin the ride.
Anything considered, I'm keen to improve the stance of the old girl, but improvements in economy and comfort are also going to be a must.
An L18 would also interest me, so hit me up if you can help out.

I have a "long" style 280ZX 5 speed and the matching shortened driveshaft out of my old 1600, pretty sure you need to flip the gearbox crossmember around and space it down 10mm or so to make it a bolt in though, yours for $400.

Thanx John, Sounds like an option.
71 series? Good condition?
Can I fit it without cutting the floor

71B box, I think you have to extend the hole in the floor hole a bit to fit them. It worked fine when I had it, drove from Auckland to Masterton with it and had no problems.

Sweet, we'll have to sort a time to view everything. When suits?
