Stealth Conversions sells a basic V-8 mounting kit (Part Number DAT-200), shown
above, for $365, including shipping. You can also buy the parts individually. For those who
want to make the parts themselves, drawings of the parts (except the speedometer
cable and driveshaft flange) are in the Datsun
Z Car V-8 Conversion Manual. We also sell a Radiator
Mounting Bracket Kit (Part Number DAT-125).
Driveshaft adapter flange note:
The driveshaft flanges that bolt to the Z Car
differential and uses a Dana #1310 U-joint, which was commonly used on most
Chevrolets in the 1960s and through the early 1970s.
The pilot diameter on the DAT-110
flange is 2.25 inches in diameter. All 1970-1978 Z Cars (except 1975 models) came with the 2.25"
1975 Z cars, and 1979-1983 (ZX) cars came with either a 2.25" or 2.00" pilot
diameter. If the differential has the 2.00" pilot, use DAT-110-2.0 ($75).

Speedometer Cable: The speedometer cable
goes from the Chevrolet transmission (which has a 7/8"-18 thread, and a .104 square drive) to the
Datsun speedometer head. The highest quality cable is use to provide smooth operation, with no bouncing of the speedometer needle. The cable ends are squared with a tapered die to reduce
stress on cable, the cable housing is steel, and the cable is lubricated with
high quality grease.
