I was joking about the damage it could do.
I'm quite attatched to my testicles so I will be making sure I have sufficient protection around the clutch assy.

How would someone in the USA (hydraulic clutch) install this? Or is a similar conversion available here?

Good question. No one has bothered to anser and I'm guessing the reason is that Datsun 5-speeds are fairly common here and less expensive than in Dellow country (Australia)

All LHD 1200 (Germany, Portugal, Canada, etc.) use a hydraulic clutch I believe so the question is big. With a standard Datsun transmission, LHD and RHD use the same gearbox except:
* The LH hole is cut out (all RHD gearbox have the casting outline for this)
* It uses a different release lever (release bearing is the same)
* A slave cylinder is bolted on
See tech article Converting Cable Clutch to Hydraulic

So probably the Dellow bell can be treated the same:
* Cut hole in appropriate location
* Drill & tap a boss for the slave cylinder. You could build up a boss with JB-Weld, the tap the threads into the case. I think this would be strong enough
* RHD & LHD release levers use the same ball stud inside the bellhousing so no worries there

Mines being used in a race car so no idea on the orignal hole position. Since my gearbox is behind me and the flywheel is level with my nuts.

Don't you worry about your flywheel exploding, or the clutch pressure plate exploding..I wouldn't like my nuts in line with those bits...

Thats the reason why I had an alloy one made up rather than lightening a cast unit.
I have an explosion/scatter sheild also which is quite thick and heavy just in case.

Besdies how much damage could a clutch assy doing 9500 rpm do ????

I know you are joking...but I can picture a really loud bang, then a warm sticky sensation running down my side, inside my shirt. I turn and realise that my left hand is still grasped to the gear shifter, but the rest of my arm lies across the passenger seat...not nice..

I've seen flywheels explode on the quarter mile @80+ mph, The car had both it's front brake lines sheered off by the flying pieces. It was a mazda..but still. He must have had a passion for handbrake turns, and his handbrake worked properly. It really turned into an E-brake. Brown underpants stuff..

There is detailed information about this swap, prices, mods needs, shifter location etc. in the Tech Section article 5-speed Overview .

One thing it doesn't mention is how scatter-resistant the Dellow housing is. US drag racing associations require a "scatter-shield" bell or a "blanket" when the car gets to a certain speed. The blanket will catch the shattering pieces before they cut brake lines or somebody's body.

Ive heard similar horror stories that were true. Crap a shatter or scatter blanket would be wise. Always use new rod bolts and dont let some lazy mechanic install your machined flywheel and clutch.
