Breaking Rear Drive Sharfts


Recommended Posts

Passenger side is the side that hops most under axle tramp, due to the way that the torque loads the car left-right.  ie, more downforce load on the right.

That fracture is a very typical torsional fracture.  I agree, probably from fatigue.  They all look like that.  A materials scientist/metallurgist might be able to look at it and tell you whether it started to break on the shorter, darker part of the outer, or if it started to break on the shinier, longer part of the outer.  But either way, you can see what happens.  All the strength is out in the rim.  When it lets go, the centre suddenly twists off leaving that rough finish.

they are different part numbers so regardless whether they "fit"  material used is probably different Nissan don't allocate two different part numbers for shits and giggles. R33  3970573L50     R34  3970573L00

Made a shroud for new Maradyne fan and mounted oil cooler on it too . it has a divider to separate airflow. Sorted fuel system this afternoon with new lines,filter, pressure sensor and mounted ethanol sensor. Fitted a new fuel pump with wiring bulkheads. Going to start with tidying up and reinstall the body and engine looms. Need to wire a few new sensors . Planning to test cooling system for leaks as well.

    • So I thought the recent developments from HKS around the RB26 at the TAS for 2022 might be an interesting topic of discussion. For those that haven't seen it, this write-up on Speedhunters explains some of the points of difference with some detailed photos to boot. Here's the article in question; HKS RB26 TAS2022 It looks to include twin VCT, a  newly designed twin-chamber plenum, and electronic internal wastegates and recirculation valves,  just to name a few.
