Re: Latest front brake conversion kits

That DPR part number is for the stock 510 struts, your threaded collars won't affect that. Stock 510 wheels may be a problem, however, as there won't be much in the way of brake caliper clearance inside for those Wilwoods. If the threaded collars are the only thing stopping you from the ZX upgrade (...

Re: New member - 1971 510 4dr sedan NAS

Hello Patrick, and welcome to The Realm. Great time to post up as the East Coast 510 Meet is happening in May at Summit Point Raceway. Great opportunity to meet up with the East Coast contingent of 510 owners - a great group of resources.

Re: GRIMLID, READ THIS - What Engine Should I Run?

HEY OKAYFINE Just wondering why you felt the need to call me out to read the thread on build swaps? Maybe it was because you bumped about a dozen dead threads and posted very short/basic/uninformed questions in all of them? Just seemed like you needed some direction as you didn't appear to have don...

Re: Any hope for this head?

Post pictures.

If the head's off, remove the cam, turn the head over, and fill the combustion chambers with fluid (water's safest), see if any valves leak.

Straight edge across the bottom to check for flat.

Corrosion in the cooling passages.

Re: Latest front brake conversion kits

Do you want to keep your struts, and are they stock 510 struts? 280ZX front struts are the go-to upgrade, both for the bigger brakes and for the bigger wheel bearings. ZX brakes can fit under some 13" wheels. Provided you want to stay on stock struts: DP Racing Part Number: 401-0506 Brake Kit, ...

Re: The new guy

Hell Kenzie, and welcome to The Realm. Depending on the rust involved (and there's always way more than you can see), you may be better off saving and buying a car in better shape. Rust repair can be a thankless task that mainly drains the wallet. Unless you like rust repair...there are guys out the...

Re: Gas, temp & blinkers

Wiring diagram and VOM, stat. Did you do the KA swap wiring?

As Datzenmike says, "good" fuses doesn't mean much as they can look good but not be connected inside the caps, or be faulty enough that once you put a load through the resistance goes through the roof.

Re: Narrowing rear control arms

Parts catalog shows the rear a-arm bushing as 55045-21000 ASSY BUSH ARM. People have indicated they were able to get the a-arm bushings from Nissan in modern times. Could also get them from RockAuto and the like - I just sold Three Bs a set of four Beck Arnley boxed bushes made in Japan.

Re: Production Numbers

There's a scan of an official NoJ notice regarding JDM production, but it doesn't list out by model, just by year. Also states they have no idea what Australia produced.
