Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

Do they make 13's? I'd like to try them back to back with the R888r which I like a lot, the R's are even better then the R888. Since the thread wear is almost the same, maybe the Nankang's feel about the same? I wonder how well they work in the rain? The R888r's do pretty well. Got first in RWD and ...

Re: Headlight fix

I think, as Byron and I were going to change up my headlights, that ultimately a re-wire for the front was destined anyhow, so if it was the headlight switch, that would be an easy fix. I was talking to Rob not to long ago in regards to remaking the engine bay harness, since you could also redo the...

Re: Headlight fix

So we still don't know for sure though? It almost sounded like Rob was buying me dinner for a second there. :) I've never had any luck fixing the switches. They will work for a little while then fail again, it's like the contacts get beyond there intended life or something :) You should try and get ...

Re: Headlight fix

My money is on a failed relay. We betting a dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant? I've never seen the relay fail in a way high and lows both don't work. The way it's constructed the relay looses connection though the 87b side of the relay, the 87a side as far as I have seen doesn't have an iss...

Re: Headlight fix

Okay my guess is the switch at this point. Only other option I can imagine besides the switch is the ground, I can't imagine the ground just braking off for no reason, it also joins with the alternator ground so it's even less likely to loose both.

Re: Headlight fix

Did you try high beam? The the factory hi/low relay has issues with galvanic corrosion. Most 510's 70-73 don't have high beams due to the relay issue. Maybe you bump the lever into high beam? Since each fuse is for each side of the car it can't be the fuse, or at least less likely. I've also seen th...

Do the square flanges you weld on retain the round boss that keeps the axle concentric to the stub axles?

Re: Doug's automotive

They sure are! It's fun to be able to balance the amount of tech in your car if you want. I'm excited to try my cell phone data app for autoxing. I like that it's something I can take out of my car when it runs it's coarse, along with lots of other things.

Re: Doug's automotive

So cool!!! Weird to think there was a before fuel injection. Or that someone had the idea to put a "shoe box" on top of a carb and jam air into it. I had fun with Dave's first turbo car messing with that setup. So glad I go to visit the era!! Now I go to my bro's work and ride in the newest fastest ...
