Re: How much does it weigh?

Added NA SR and FJ20ET conclusion. L motor and SR weigh about the same and I'm surprised the FJ isn't that much heavier then the SR turbo. The FJ still had the power steering pump and some plumbing. Didn't have time to pull it and re install. The factory FJ flywheel is LIGHT! When I built my FJ20 I...

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Looks like a nice project. When I cut the tranny tunnel for my KA box, I did it nice and tight like yours, I ultimately had to open it up more due to an awful vibration it made against the tunnel at low rpms.

Very interested in these
Given your location, Dave at Futofab in Dunbarton, NH might be a better option.

Re: 72' 510 Horn Wiring / Momo Corse Wheel Assy

Thanks, I have yet to tear into it, I have one of the Grant "no wheel no steal" hubs and steering wheel. It did work at one time so I am fairly sure that that brass contact is still under there. there is likely an issue in the contact from the Grant piece to it.

Re: 72' 510 Horn Wiring / Momo Corse Wheel Assy

Thanks for the clear description above Ted. I have had intermittent horn on all the time/on when it should be/off all the time problems since I built my car 16 years ago. It is in the latter condition now and all that stands between me an state inspection, this should help a great deal.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Yesterday I fired the 510 up, both to check the battery and to keep the cam oiled. It lit right off so that was good, specially after last years fiasco with what turned out to be a bad battery cell. As we have a good drive planned on July 21st I am going to take the car for a bit of a small run bef...

Re: 5 speed hole cutting!

What I sent wasn't intended to be cut for an SR trans because he's not using an SR trans. It was a reference for the shifter hole location. You can clearly see where the original hole is. I understood the the OP's post, but what you linked WAS for an SR trans, I was just attempting to say (maybe no...

Re: 5 speed hole cutting!

From what I recall, the SR cut away will be over kill for what the ZX needs. I went from the ZX to the KA box (same as SR) and had to do more to make it fit. Try over on Ratsun if you have searched here thoroughly.

Mikuni Rebuild Schedule

I have been chasing my tail on what I initially (2 years ago) thought was a jetting problem but now think it is a rebuild issue. My problem is an off throttle bog and popping at idle at low rpms. I have cleaned and maintained my 44's, but have never fully rebuilt them in 10 years+ with the exception...

I'd submit this to BAT, my old 510 race car just sold for over twice what I sold it for five years ago.

Re: hello from rhode island

Nice, Rhodent Island! I went to RISD. Bought a 510 wagon up on Federal Hill in 1987, only wagon I ever had.
We should plan a meet over at Futofab with all these North Easterners showing up here.

MOMO Vega's 14" x 6"

Not mine, but I wish they were. These would look very nice on someones 510.
