Category: Rear Axle And Rear Suspension

Datsun 1200 cars (sedan/coupe/wagon) use an H145 differential in the Rear Axle Assembly.

Contents

ID

H145 has 8-stud removable center. H150 and H165 also use 8 bolts. But only the H145 is 8-stud (the others use bolts).

NOTE: Aussie-built B110 sedans with a non-removable diff center use the BW60 diff.

Flange

H145: scalloped flange, bolt hole rectangle 36 x 50 mm

H150: 45 x 54 mm round flange
H165: 45 x 54 mm round or rectangular flange

There are some differences between flanges on H165's, some long (~217.5mm from carrier mounting face to driveshaft flange face), some short (~202.5mm). Depth of hole for centering boss varies also.

H190: 50 x 60 mm, round or rectangular

Axle Codes
H = Hitachi removable gear carrier (pumpkin/centre section)
HA - H145 (145mm diameter ring gear, 5.709 inch)
HB - H150 (150mm diameter ring gear, 5.906 inch)
HC - H165 (165mm diameter ring gear, 6.496 inch)
HD - H190 (190mm diameter ring gear, 7.480 inch) ALUMINUM CARRIER
HE - H190 CAST IRON CARRIER
HF - H190A revised for strength
EXAMPLE: HF38 = H190 with 3.889 ratio was factory fitted

Axle code is on Chassis Identification plate 1980-on, in the engine compartment. Starting in mid-80s, Axle Code is on door-jamb sticker.

Factory LSD has a sticker on the back of the diff housing.

Counting

To verify the ratio in the vehicle matches the original equipment (or build tag), you may count turns of the wheel vs turns of the driveshaft. If slightly less than 4 turns of the driveshaft results in one turn of the wheels, it is a 3.9 ratio. If it takes a bit more than 4 turns, it is a 4.111 ratio.

Even better is to note the stamped numbers on the ring gear. For example, this unit is stamped 39:11
24439.jpgAlbum click to view

39 divided by 11 = 3.545 ratio

Pinion gear is similarly stamped

Differential Repair

Replacing diff bearings or spider gears? Or ring & pinion? The procedure for re-assembly the differential gear carrier is very complicated. Be sure to get the factory service manual.

We recommend: Just swap the whole center section "pumpkin" from a 1971-1973 B110 or 1974 B210 in there. It will be cheaper and certainly easier, someone has one for free. The center section rarely goes bad unless the diff runs low on oil, so your chances of getting a good used one are high.

Yes, B110 and 1974 B210 center section is identical. You could also swap a 1975-1978 pumpkin they say you need a 2mm spacer between the pumpkin and the housing.

Backlash between ring gear and drive pinion
H145: 0.10 to 0.15 mm
R160: 0.1 to 0.2 mm
H165: 0.13 to 0.18 mm
H190: 0.15 to 0.20 mm

Datsun Competition (later Nismo) used to sell every factory H145 ratio: 3.9, 4.111, 4.375, 4.625. See "Nissan Competition" section below.

Alloy Gear Carrier

The alloy carrier is weaker (less able to handle the torque) but is lighter so giving a superior ride over the normal cast iron carrier.
