    Drove my 71 daily for 20 years.
    The current 72 is a fair weather driver with minimal updates to improve the enjoyment.

  1. Did you know you can buy Spicer greasable joints from amazon. My Oreillys was more expensive and slower. Don's iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  2. Decided I was man enough to DIY the rear joint and add the R200 yoke. Followed the recommendation on this site using a vise and sockets. It is way harder to remove than replace. Knocked a needle bearing down on the first try. Second time was a success. Installed the Mfactory LSD and the driveline. Need to get it if the jack stands for a test run. Thanks everyone for the help and suggestions Don's iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  3. Part 2 I was at Xfinity (Comcast) the other day and they gave a home security system with free installation and monitoring for 2 years. Didn't need it as I already have one for our home. So had them install in my garage. Free security for my cars, parts and tools. Who said nothings free. Plus they lowered my monthly cost by $60 month. If you haven't updated your service in last two years go see them. Don's iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  4. Installed the R200, halfshafts and front and rear supports. Installed the newly converted driveshaft. MT-90 arrived today. It's ready to take out for a test run but need to decide whether reinstall the old exhaust 1st or go directly to the new Zstory full system before the test run.

  5. Have a wedge bar that fits between a trans mount-bolt and the flywheel. Don's iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  6. By flipping the pin mechanism over it extended the lower part of the shifter a 1/2 inch. Seem to work fine. I haven't measured the total movement of the shifter ball yet for comparison. More to come as I progress. Forgot to order Redline and don't have enough. So have to find some. Don's iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  7. Ps I had a mfactory LSD added to the R200. In case that changes anything. Don's iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  8. The R200 I purchased came from a 300z with stub axles that bolt to my 240z halfshafts. Came with haft-shafts that need new joints. My 240 shafts are ready to so bolted them in. Just checking to make sure it's okay. Somewhere I heard R200s have a shorter shaft on one side???? Not sure where I heard that. Don's iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  9. Nice. If it looks like a ........ Okay so I replaced the rear Driveline joint and added the R200 yoke. R200 is in installed along with drive line. Question: is there a left-right half-shaft? Is one shorter than another? Can I use the 240 shafts? Don's iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  10. Yah so you know I have a series I console that I refuse to cut. plus I wanted to maintain the short shift lever I am used to. So I made up my mind I find a solution. first I reversed the location of the fulcrum pin which dropped it further into the trans without any negative effect. Then I took a lever from a 83 Zx which is nearly straight and put it in a vise and started working on it with a benzine torch and a floor jack handle. Kept working it till it cleared the console. Once that was done I needed it to go up into the inner boot and the console boot. So far it clears everything. Final test will be actually driving. Put the R200 in today and drive line is perfect except the rear yoke. Length is good and So i experimented with taking out the u joint so I can add the new yoke. Havent done that in a while and the Nissan yokes are a royal pain. Installing should be easy. Really erked me to remove a good joint. Two days ago I was about to abandon the change over project but took my anger out on Zed Head. Then decided to prove I was wasn't s total idiot. I'm done with that now. I'll give keep you posted.

  11. I lived without one for a long time. Didn't know what I was missing. Recommend buying a good one. Don's iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  12. Used the above method of sockets and bench vise to remove the existing u joint. New spicer joint to arrive on Tuesday thanks to Amazon who has the greasable version for a 240Z.
  13. Thank you. Good information. Don's iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
