yeah but the US spec B-210 has the horrid lead weight bumpers on them... early one's are tolerable, but I'd HAVE to aussify a late madel US spec B-210 if I ever had one...

yeah BW68 crush tube is NLA too

was mainly curious about bearings and stuff as if I'm gonna redo the BW68 I want it done PROPERLY...

would like new bearings rather than something 35+ years old...

guess I need to find the spare BW68 and have a look at it's internals

BW68 was put in as I wanted to run a L18 and 4 speed (vetoed as dad said it'd be too powerful)

and yeah diff is out of an aussie assembled 120Y (March '77)

biggest wirry I have now is is I took the car the diff came from through a salt flat and all the bolts on the back case are all nicely rusted up...

thankfully I have 2 spare BW68's (forgot I have a late model 120Y sedan that is pretty much identical to the project car (August '77)

out of curousity, what has more parts availability to it, H150 or BW68

The Defect 3 (July '74 120Y) has has a BW 68 transplanted under it... but I have heard a metallic "tink tink tink" when I was driving it hard, have a spare BW 68, but I do have a H150 (under a July '75 120Y) I could redo if I needed to...

yes that's the rims... and the car the front end it's coming off

TD3 these days looks a lot better than that pic but the back tyres are a bit bigger than in that pic will upload an up to date pic soon

no not wheel spacers, as far as I know they are illegal here...

and yes those are 200B SX alloys on that 1200...

somewhere there is a pic of TD3 and it's 200B SX alloys..can only fit the rears on, fronts hit the struts and now I'm thinking if I strip the point off mine like on that 1200 they will look like delorean wheels...

the rims going on the front of my 120Y are off the sunny the struts are coming off...

donor car is a Febuary 1981 (square light) B310.. and I was told late model sunnies had beefier brakes - sadly I won't be using the H150 as getting it out from under the car is too hard...

really all I want out of the B310 strut swap is the ability to use my 200B SX Alloys on the front and get rid of "the o-rings of death"

ie 12" rims off the front of my car...

I have a July '74 120Y known as The Defect III, that I'm thinking I'd like to get back on the road....

even if it doesn't make it back on the road and stays a farm hack, I need to get better front end stuff on it...

I have a very rusty late model Sunny (B310) struts aree okay I think, but it'll need new balljoints and tierod ends

is the entire sunny front end okay for use in Western Australia,or is it gonna be too wide, or is it wheel offset changes I'm getting confused with?

car will be having 200B SX alloy rims going on the front of it like it has on the back... though I know the 175/75 R14's will have to come off the back probably replace them with 175/60 R14's

also what aftermarket seats fit the 120Y/B210 seat rails and still work with seatbelts? have a pair of front seats from that same sunny... would like something with a fixed back so I sit up more than I do with the stock 120Y seats...

are said brackets for the early or late aussie sedan? have a set of 200b SX alloys I want o put on the front of my 120Y and they hit the strut, or is better to go B310 sunny/A10 stanza? as I know the alloys came off a late model B310

L16 I could do, was gonna stick with an A12, as licencing would be cheaper as I don't have a licence - don't have one as I have autism mind you I'm a lot more aware than I was last time I tried to go for it, mind you there are a lot more morons out on the road too...

had planned on going L18 in my 120Y sedan (why it has a BW 68 and NOT the H145) but never been able to find a good L18

but now I want to get it rebuilt for the road, L18 is too much for a 120Y... seems that in WA a 120Y with a L18 is too much power to weight wise, but a PB210 is allowed a L20B... I'm curious if the PB210 shells are reinforced in a way that the 120Y shells aren't... or are they all like the same like 1970's ford falcon hardtops?
