In the book How to Restore Your Datsun Z-Car by Wick Humble, on page 101, a little ditty reads like this:


Two different differentials--and, consequently, halfshafts--were fitted to Z-cars. Automatic-transmission-equipped cars used the R180 differential, which has its own drive-shaft design called the side-yoke type. The other was the R200, fitted to cars with manual 4- or 5-speed transmissions.


Isn't this information flase? I thought all older Z's came with R180's in them.

thanks,

Ok all 240's came with r180's, I believe all 260's as well, (though the 2+2 may have come with the r200 I'm not sure) and on 280's the auto's came with R180's while the stick 280's had R200's. (again I think the 2+2 had the R200 but I'm not positive) and I believe all ZX's had R200's although now that I think about it, maybe the auto zx's had the 180's as well. damned confusing though isn't it?
