superfatto's kits just work -- good stuff


If you prefer to do work on your own, here is some more information

The South Africa 1200/1400 bakkies -- starting 1976 -- use the same struts as 1976-1980 B210. They have different hubs which use smaller bearings to fit a larger stub axle. 1973-1975 used larger bearings and hubs to match. In other words, Datsun upgraded the struts for 1976 (technically DEC 1975) to use stronger/larger stub axles

I would guess 258mm brakes are large enough to use with RX-7 FC 4-piston calipers. The FC model means 1985-1992, the 4-piston was 1985-1988 and only on 5-lug wheel models. Lesser FC versions used a single-piston caliper. The 4-piston was used with a 276mm disc rotor, and most Datsun guys have used 280mm rotors or larger with the 4-piston caliper

That B310/120Y caliper bolt spacing may be referring to Australia 120Y which used Australia brakes and a caliper adapter plate. In any case it matters not, use an adapter plate to mount the RX-7 caliper (for the Datsun models where the Hilux bolts directly to the strut, the disc rotors are machined down to fit the caliper, e.g. it only works with certain size rotor). By using an adapter plate instead (a piece of steel with four holes in it) you can make a caliper work with a variety of rotor sizes

The RX-7 four-piston caliper won't necessarily stop your car faster than a single-piston caliper -- but will likely have better pedal control and different pedal effort. And if the brake pads are larger that will stop the car faster. And compared to many calipers there are more choices of brake pads for the RX-7 (various racing type pads, street type pads, etc)

Thanks so much guys. I've been talking to superfatto on Facebook and he advised I should use the s13 (I think I saw you with them too?) I'm sure they'll work fine with my 258mm discs. What're the pointers for installation of the s13? I saw them on rock auto and they're quite affordable. I'll do the work here but I'd also like to buy adapters online too. Advise further.

S13 calipers come in four different styles:
* for 280mm rotor Japan & Europe
* for 250mm rotor Japan
* for 257mm rotor USA & Europe
* for 251mm rotor USA

So depending on which rotor you have you use the matching caliper with a purchased adapter to match that combo

Or you can use any S13 caliper with your 258mm rotors by using a custom adapter. Some are using 258 rotor with Pulsar caliper and the Bluehands adapter. See 258mm Brake Upgrade

Already talking to him actually. You guys are very helpful. I have gotten stanza vented discs 258mm. Now, yet to get s13 calipers and horses from rock auto and adapters I'll get from supafatto. Am I on the right track? Did I miss anything else?

Just make sure to document which Stanza and which S13 caliper you are using. They all need different adapters

Is this what you have? Is the same rotor used by S13 USA

"240SX" is the USA version of the S13

Not ideal

* has small 251mm or 257mm brakes, while JDM and EUR got 280mm brakes

* has largest engine but less HP than Japan/Europe turbo models

* has the stupid automatic seat belts. Open the door and the seat belt goes with it!

By the way, your 1992 Stanza rotors are exactly the same as 1990 240SX rotors (257mm, although some brake companies listed them as 258mm)
