Hey guys, ill start by introducing my self.
My name is Hadley, I'm 19 and live in the Bluemountains. Last November i sold my beloved Mx5 and decided to get a 260z. I found one for sale 6 hours south so we drove down with a car trailer and next thing i knew i was the owner of this golden Turd..
Its a 1974 2+2 (vin ends in 000764 so I'm guessing it is a really early one). i bought it off an old pommy guy for $2,750, he had been using it to tow his caravan around... the flywheel provide it to. it was unregistered but that was ok. when i got it home i set about cutting out rust and welding in new plates and bogging it up. I must of done ok as it past rego haha. A few months later a mate and i drove to Brisbane one weekend to pick up a l28 block, head and some other stuff. But i haven since decided that i want to do an RB swap instead...
which brings me to my main point
Ive figured out pretty much everything that needs to be done except for the tailshaft and diff.
Ive tried looking everywhere for conversions on 2+2s but i can't find anything that will help.
Can i use the standard tailshaft out of my car and will it fit straight in the trans? or do i need to use a combo of both? or just get a custom one made up?
Also can i keep the standard diff? its just going to be a stock rb25det atm so will it be strong enough?
Im an apprentice so i don't have a lot of money to spend and id like to do as much my self as possible as my brother is a mechanic.
