Nissan 300C

Recommended Posts

Hi guys new here, just purchase a 1984 Nissan 300c at a good price.

I'm chasing a set of inner/outer tie rod ends which seems to be a hard task here in Tasmania

I've google online which has been a nightmare, as most places want the OEM number but they only list the Nissan Cedric/gloria (Japanese naming of the car).

and I'm not sure if parts are correct.

Do you guys know of someone here in Australia that I can get parts for my Nissan or even import them for me?

Thank you in advance

David

Given that the 300C was fully imported, there is absolutely no chance that the parts to suit the Jap models won't fit.

Yes, get in touch with someone like Jesse Streeter with your Vin. He can source from nissan or probably find aftermarket alternative.

If you can have the car off the road, the other option is a friendly repco....if you can measure up everything you will almost certainly find aftermarket to fit.

BTW, nice buy, I guess there aren't too many of those parked in your street

No, any local dealer should be able help with your VIN/chassis number available.    300C = Y30 in Nissan model 'speak', so either the FAST or E-FAST parts systems will tell you the Nissan PN's needed.     E-FAST is for older Nissan models that Nissan has 'dropped' from the 'main' FAST system.    Anyway, attached is a screenshot of a quick search I did on E-FAST.   Ignore the CA20S line.....that engine was not used in this model in Australia, we got the VG30 version.     These PN's should (must...) be checked with Nissan using your VIN.     My versions of FAST and E-FAST are also a bit on the old side, so there may well be PN supersessions or worse (hopefully not)

A quick check on Amayama suggests prices are up around $150 each (I didn't check them all though) , but that's genuine parts so probably not unexpected.

I'd be surprised if these parts aren't available aftermarket (Repco/Bursons/etc....but some of these guys no nothing about anything older than 10 or 20 years unless it's a Holden, Ford, etc).   There's also ebay, but that can be a lottery.   These cars use a fairly common (for the day) steering box/drag link/idler arm steering arrangement so parts may well be similar to 240C and similar sedans.

Thanks guys for your suggestion

I've tried nissan and they can only get drivers side which will cost me >$500 which I can't afford

I've tried repco burson  peddars and all the auto places around Tassy but all say that nothing is listed

My chassis number is CHN 087491 if someone can help

not sure if nissan cedric y30 6 gen parts would fit my car ????

Well there's these that supposedly fit a 1984 300C according to the compatibility list:

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2x-Brand-New-OEM-QUALITY-Steering-Tie-Rod-Ends-For-NISSAN-LAUREL-C31/153729447915?fits=Model%3ADatsun+300C&hash=item23cafd37eb:g:OwEAAOSw8A1d0lnH

....but this is only the outer joint, there's also an inner as well (one each side - see previous parts screen shot).

Sold as a pair because one will be LH thread, the other RH thread (also the reason Nissan PN's are different side to side). Ditto for the inner joint.

The other possibility is to contact a specialist Nissan wrecker who sometimes also stock new aftermarket parts.

BTW, that's not a chassis number....should have 'Y30' in it somewhere.   Check the firewall or the ADR (compliance) plate.   Compliance plate should look something like this (but this is for an 84 N12 Pulsar):

Thanks guys for all the help, finally today after numerous random emails a bloke from Melbourne sourced 3 of the tie rods from japan for me $282.65 to front door and I found the fourth one on ebay for $30 rhs inner.

Hopefully they all are correct (touch wood)
