Almost finished with paint and rust removal, so thought I might see if any junk which came with it is of use to anyone here.

With the ute came a set of hubcaps (probably junk, but wouldn't want to chuck it out first without definitely knowing) and some round thing which says Datsun on it. Piccies:

Also, in the process of removing paint + bog I've found holes all along the tray, I'm guessing these were for some railing or something, was this standard for the 1000 or some after market job?

And last but not least: What Cylons8 has previously mentioned that if I were to put a a14 into my 1000, I'd need to probably get a new dif. I'm not very knowledgable about cars, so what dif would be suitable for such a motor? If I know which dif and what car it comes from, it would make it a lot easier for my more knowledgable friends to assist me with this part of the project.

Either fit flares with a modded 1200 ute diff or shorten a series 1 bluebird diff
[Edit] you could also use fwd offset rims with the 1200 ute diff

Hey CJ,

I'm building a worked A14 for my next engine (got rid of the A12) and I am using a H150 diff centre and stock tires.

If anything is going to break it'll be traction. When I fitted my 13x7 watanabe's my A12 managed to ruin the diff. So the extra contact surface and same driving manner seemed to equate to the H145 failing.

So for the time being if you want to keep things fairly simple just be sure to run a tyre ratio somewhat close to the stock.

If anything it's your driving manner that will dictate whether something survives or not, so if you're pretty good and run a H150 (B310 or B210) it should hold up okay. Really comes down to how you drive. But for a cheaper simpler solution I've just stuck with the factory 12 inch tyres.

BTW: Pic 1; Datsun 1200 hubcaps Pic2; I dunno Pic3; don't think that is stock. H150 diff centre is from Sunny B310 or 120Y and can fit into your diff housing with an adapter spacer , or just run it straight without adapter.

The biggest issue is the diff in a 1000, especially when you put in
an engine that goes beyond the h145 and h150 strength capability.
Ive found some rare all alloy diffs from a Peugeot and alfa but
required some work to shorten them. However they are LSD and made
to sit behind 2-4.2 litre engines.
I find 165/70/13 to be a good compromise for the h145 for now as
they are cheap, good for bumps, diameter is a tad bigger etc.
I think Revvhead had a 120y diff BW unit that was 3.4 ratio that
could probably be good for a bigger capacity motor, otherwise
as Clyons has mentioned.

H150 center is plenty strong for an A14. Just bolt in and go.

Pic 2 is a series 1 bluebird center cap, it should have 4 moulded lugs or a 50mm round lug inside to secure it to a wheel
