R200 long nose gear supplier


Recommended Posts

Hello Folks,

Long time listener first time caller. I have a 1978 280Z I bought from this site in 2014. I'm in the process of a complete rebuild. I have a stage 4 motor from Eiji at Datsun Spirit. I've also sourced a 83' ZX transmission and an MFactory LSD. I'd like to get my R200 long nose rebuilt with 3.90 gears. Does anyone have a source for that? I'm having a hard time sourcing ring and pinion.

A few photos.

It would be easier and more effective probably to just buy a 3.9 R200 with good gears.  I don't think I have ever seen anyone talk about worn gears on their R200.

But here are the part numbers if you want to try to track new gears down.

I'm saying just buy a complete used R200 with 3.9 gears.  Typically found in the 1980 -1983 280ZX 5 speed cars.  They're out there.  You could probably buy a complete junked 280ZX for less than the cost of new gears if you find them.  

Actually, I doubt that you'll be able to find gears for sale.  A used R200 is probably your only option.

AFAIK, this is the only new option available and will kill your motorway peace and traffic light racing but a total hoot any other time. Oh and mega expensive!!


+1 on buying a 3.9 R200. Mine came from Arizona to the UK and before shipping it was on eBay for $200! I admit, that was 4 or 5 years ago.
