Re: Aftermarket Engine Mounts - CRAP

Hi Jim; I had exactly the same experience with exactly the same crappy parts, a year ago. I couldn't believe RockAuto sold these things for the 510, they're so incredibly out-of-spec. What the...? As Michael suggests, I ended up ordering the genuine ones from Nissan and of course they fit perfectly....

Re: Knox Mountain Cruise 2017

Just in case you haven't already read enough-- and seen enough pictures-- here's a quick "PS" on top of everyone else's accounts. If you live within reasonable range of Kelowna BC and haven't been to Knox, you ought to consider putting it on your bucket list to do so. This was my first tim...

Re: Knox Mountain Cruise 2017

Great plan Keith (& others). I'm also grey haired and-- according to our sons at least-- in the "old fart" category. There are certain circumstances under which I'd dispute that... but it's becoming more true all the time. Saturday it is then! I told Brenda about the offer to hike up a...

Re: Knox Mountain Cruise 2017

Hey Keith, thanks for the detailed info. Should be easy for us to meet, since you're willing to hang around for a while in an obvious spot. I'll make sure I wear a Datsun T-shirt to make things a little easier on your end! :D Looks to me like you're planning to head up on Saturday morning then, righ...

Re: Knox Mountain Cruise 2017

I'll be heading down this Friday from Edmonton with my wife-- but sadly not in our 510. It's not ready for a long trip yet. Even so I'm really looking forward to meeting whatever Datsun folks can make it. Knox has been on my list for a long time and lots of stuff had to be juggled to make it finally...

Re: Copper nickel for fuel lines.

This a good thread about cunifer lines too-- mostly discussing brake lines. http://the510realm.com/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=26600&hilit=cunifer Honestly though since this stuff works great for hydraulics, fuel is a total non-issue. Extremely low pressure compared to brake lines, and pretty much ...

Re: WTB - 2 x Rear Defrost Knob/switch

Hi Dave; I've got 2 of these switches available but unfortunately both of them are missing part of the outermost trim-- the black ring that surrounds the blue centre section. Here's what they look like (both are the same). IMG_9534 comp.jpg I have no idea what happened to those rings; they were both...

Re: WTB: 72 4 door left front window regulator.

So-- backpacksaddler, did you get one yet? I might be able to help. Shipping from Canada, unfortunately... not ideal... but if you're still looking, it's an option at least.

Re: 2005 Volvo V50

I hear you. Getting our kids engaged in these fiddly, old-school projects can be a real challenge when they're used to quick results. That's what I found with our boys anyway. Eager to have their own vehicles, you bet! Not quite so eager to invest the time it takes to learn how they work and how to ...

Re: NVH Issues

I chased vibration & noise for ages and finally found that the bolts holding the factory tranny mount to my 71B 5-speed were coming into contact with the crossmember (Experimental Engineering) when load came on and the driveline rotated ever so slightly on its axis. Bolts with a shorter head too...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Care to share how it was incorrect? I'll be doing the same job in a few months, also using Baz's stuff, and would be glad for any tips you'd be willing to pass along.

Re: 2005 Volvo V50

I was pretty sure you'd left off a zero when you said the price on the car was $600. Seriously! That's an insane deal.

Great project for you to do with your son, too. Or maybe, great project for you to do for your son? :) Either way, I hope it comes together smoothly!
