What I believe happened is that the very early 520(65 build dates) came with the same type transmission as the very late 1965 Datsun 320 floor shift model had, so when I think that someone has late 320/very early 520 floor shift parts, I say don't scrap them, the flywheel/clutch parts, transmission adapter, the 320 transmission tunnel, the transmission with the throw out bearing collar and arm, rear transmission mount, and the starter all need to be saved for someone that wants to convert from a column shift to a floor shift.
Personally if I convert the drive train in a 320 from stock to something else, I will use either a J15 engine/transmission, or I will convert over to a A15 engine/5 spd. out of a Datsun b210/210, I am not going to bother trying to find all the parts to keep the E1 engine or transmission going.
Around here we had a company called "Otts Friction Supply" to do all the rebuilding of clutch discs and brake shoes, but the last time I drove by they had closed, I will miss that place.

wayno - if you need a clutch disc rebuilt Kay-Cee rebuilder did my disc for $55. I was impressed when I saw a Mustang Cobra Jet disc on the table when I walked in, not to mention several 3ft disc from Caterpillar Bulldozer, excavator, and a few other ginormous earth movers . Taking down my PLG 222 brake shoe and disc next week for rebuild.
