  1. I just used O Reilly's for the tool loaner program, I am getting Neapco U joints from a Driveline shop in Chehalis. They are called "The U Joint" Neapco has been around since the 30's like Spicer and make U joints for a lot of farm equipment. (heavy duty) They look just like a spicer and are US made. Greasable too! Seeing I am not running more than stock HP I think they will work just fine. Better than the "premium" ones you get at O R.
  2. We are sitting the same boat and didn't even know it. I am replacing all 4 U joints in my half shafts, I was able to get two done yesterday as the shop had to order in the other two U joints. They should be in this morning. I found that O Reiliy's loans out the Ball Joint remover that Mike W mentioned in your other post. Basically it is free for 3 days you just leave a big deposit. It worked great for half the job and then I used a large C clamp with the sockets for the reassembly of the other half.
  3. I have heard the trick is to flip the bushings over and change the pin position. I like the bends you made, I still have the straight ZX shifter too, and a straight 510 shifter along with a 720 shifter. I should be able to make something work. I thought the R200 used clip in half shafts, not the bolt on with the Diff stubs. I could be wrong. The later K diffs had clip in for sure, thats what I am going to use. The half shafts should be the same length except for the VLSD which had different R to L. I have not gotten far on my 5sp swap yet. I keep cleaning and painting all the other parts.
  4. Don, tell me about the shifter in the background.
  5. Shipping to me in WA says $67.50 @JLPurcell just curious as to why you listed the condition as "remanufactured"
  6. I agree with Site, I check the part numbers up on a factory site like Courtesy or Nissanparts.cc and see if it is available. I then go to my local Nissan dealer and order it. Usually sales tax is less than the shipping charge from Texas (Courtesy), at least for me in WA. Nissan still has a lot of parts available, you just have to check before buying an overpriced part on Ebay. I made a deal with my local Nissan dealer so he sells me parts at the internet rate, instead of the retail they usually sell at. Worth asking for IMO. A trans pilot bushing they quoted $15+ MSRP for, I bought for $3.77 with the internet price. Just saying they jack up the price for the unsuspecting.
  7. Salvage title??
  8. Mine are all from 240's, and all have closed holes. I searched for 510 lights and they have the open side.
  9. There have been a few different handles, The 74 260Z is a one off.
  10. Estate sales are usually like a fancy garage sale run by an outside company (afternoonestatesales.com). This one looks like it goes 3 days, no pre advertised pricing that I could find. You could contact them and see if they will tell you the price. OR Just show up in TX with a big wad of cash, and take it home. Nice looking Honda 90 too.
  11. I guess I will find out down the road. Ha, they don't use medical vans, they just cut you up in the garage.
  12. Looks like the image has been used a few times.
  13. There is another posting up from about the same time, calling this ad out as a scam. https://bellingham.craigslist.org/cto/6100054621.html While a lot of these ads do turn out to be scams, I have come away with free or very inexpensive deals on cars.
  14. I know right, Nice cars and a huge garage. After I called he texted back and said the car was "sold" Who knows !??!!
  15. When I ran across this ad it had been up for 18 hours. The car was probably gone 17.5 hours ago. I still tried, anyone here grab it up?
