I have 2 of these 5 speeds from a Laurel C31/Skyline R30. For what Datsuns are they a good 5 speed swap?

It'll replace a normal Datsun short nose 4 speed without having to change/shorten the tailshaft. So in that regard they're good. In terms of ratios though. They're nothing that great from memory.

Ratio wise I did like it; 1st thru 4th gear are close ratio and 5th was a big overdrive.

Do these fit 510's without shorten the driveshaft?
