Re: Need help identifying this tranny

The L series FS5W63A was the manual transmission on the '77-'79 S10 200sx. It was an option on the '78-'79 A10 (HL510) in the States and through'80 in Canada. In '80 in the States and '81 in Canada, the Z20 engine was introduced to the A10 and the L20B retired. The dogleg was still available optiona...

Re: WANTED to Buy - 510 Brake Master Cylinder

I took my 'new' clutch slave apart to be sure there was no machining debris. Wet it with brake fluid so the seal wouldn't be dry the first time it was used.

Re: Latest price of fuel

I live 1 mile from work. The price doesn't bother me :) I bike to work but insure and drive a few months in the summer. Mostly the Canby oddesy and I rarely look at the prices because... holidays! May not go south this year but instead road trip to Ontario. Getting on in years and still have work i...

Re: Flat Plane Crankshaft

All 4 cylinder cranks will be 'flat plane'. As they are all 4 cycle engines (compression, fire, exhaust and intake) and there are only 4 cylinders, I don't think you could do it any other way really.

Don't bother. Here's my KA crank wearing a girdle.

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

http://www.the510realm.com/download/file.php?id=46259 These are totaled. Looks like the contact came off and welded to the other contact. The other set could be filed down but if replacing one might as well do both. The plugs look very good except Champion??? Nissans only use NGK. Running another b...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Re vacuum line on side of intake.... You're thinking of the flow guide valve. There is a vent line from the fuel tank and a sealed gas cap. The vent line sends fumes to the crankcase for storage when engine is off and tank pressure rises. When engine is started the stored fumes in the engine are dra...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Ha ha ha and 95% of ignition problems are.... carb related. We're saying if the carb is suspect never dismiss the electrical and visa-versa. You need spark and gas delivered at the right time and the right amount. It's one or the other... can even be both.

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Everything you describe sounds fixable with some checking and adjustments, hardly a candidate for replacement...... yet. As mentioned set valve lash HOT. Set timing. Then.... The slotted screw near the carb base next to the vacuum advance pipe is the idle mixture adjustment. The idle speed screw is ...

Re: Flat Plane Crankshaft

Yes they did. All of their 4 cylinder engines are flat plane. Here is my flat plane or 180 L20B and Z22 crankshafts.

Re: Front Strut Comparison PL510, A510, 280ZX, S110 200SX

Well it's a right hand side number. The '80 S110 200sx has an N8426 which is as close as I can get. The N84 00 number does not come up on my data base. The last two digits 00-19 is a 'Similarity' code. Indicating that the part is only slightly different such as a different color or material but esse...

Re: WTB Automatic flexplate 5 bolt for L16/18

Looks like an earlier 510 Borg Warner 35 flex plate. Not that it matters if using for a clutch mount.
