Re: SoCal Caravan to BRE Open House and Multi-State Datsun Meet 2017

Trip Report: A small contingent of UFO SoCal peeps (who also did the pilgrimage to Shasta back in the day) made the drive out to the BRE Open House in Henderson, Nevada (near Las Vegas) and then out to Williams, Arizona for the Multi-State Datsun Meet on Saturday. Overall the drive was mostly uneven...

Re: Blue on Blue barn find 510

Figured I'd post an update when I made more progress, but I've been sidelined working on getting Randy York's Orange KA24E (Single-cam) 510 buttoned up before putting it up for auction. The only real progress I've made on the blue barn find 510 was finally getting the title/licensing straightened ou...

Re: Blue on Blue barn find 510

Progress is still slow. I finished installing a new brake master cylinder (glad I kept some of my stock parts) and new hard lines to the splitter. Started working on restoring the driver's rear brakes, but was unable to remove the old brake drum. Used lots of rust penetration fluid but unfortunately...

Re: Blue on Blue barn find 510

I've only used vinegar on electrical components with surface rust. This rust was a lot more "crusty" so I decided to give this product a shot. I still need to figure out a good short term solution for the rust in other locations. (Like the trunk/rear fender seems) Might try yo clean up as ...

Re: Blue on Blue barn find 510

As part of the brake system overhaul, I'm replacing the brake master cylinder with a rebuilt OEM 3/4" unit from my parts stash. The backing plate had a bit of rust, so I used this opportunity to try out Evapo-rust. 12 hours of soaking and not a trace of rust. Pretty sweet. (Can I soak the entir...

Re: Blue on Blue barn find 510

Yes, I'm happy with the fit and seal, but let's see how it holds up to our ethanol laced fuel. My other 510 (built in Jan 1971) has the single piece rubber tube fuel filler. I'm thinking about converting it to this setup as well since I have a spare metal tube.

Re: Blue on Blue barn find 510

Progress has been slow going due to moving houses... which meant getting the old house sold and finding a new house. Lucky the place we found has over one acre, so I'll have plenty of room once I get a workshop built. In the meantime I've been slowly getting back to the barnfind now that the move is...

Re: Blue on Blue barn find 510

Slow progress this weekend on the barn find 510. (yet another open house on our place) * Got the Weber carb mounted up to the stock manifold. The "instructions" seem pretty generic and I had to wing it when it came to putting the adapters on. Still need to replace the fuel lines in the eng...

Re: Blue on Blue barn find 510

Yes, the body is as good as it looks. There is nothing I can really do about the surface rust (besides going the full repaint route) but otherwise there is just some very minimal rust signs in the usual places on the lower front fenders & rear dogleg. Yes, a bunch of hard water... my oldest son ...

Blue on Blue barn find 510

Well, I wasn't looking for another 510 project at the time, but I had an incredible deal fall into my lap and now I'm a proud owner of yet another '71 510. This particular car hasn't run since 1989 and has been mostly stored in a garage in Riverside, CA since that time... Although it probably spent ...
