Re: New member - sgplancer

Hello and welcome to The Realm. Your new project looks very period '90s with the mono scheme, spoiler, and tire and flare package. Not a spoiler I'm used to seeing, any idea of its provenance?

Looks like a clean car, do you have a plan yet?

Re: L16 Twin Carb

Tons of sites for SUs. Check out the Dime Quarterly backissues at The 510 Archives. There are three comprehensive articles I wrote back in the day. My old website is long gone, but the info lives in the pages of DQ.

Re: Brakes questions

Bias adjusters plumbed in the rear line are pretty rare for a 510 with your setup, are you sure you're going to need one? For the BMC push rod, you can use any threaded rod, it's all about getting the length right. I no longer have a spare to measure, someone here will. Needs to be adjustable, thoug...

Re: Hello

300WHP is fairly rare for a 510. Even a stock KA with 145WHP makes for a quick 510, and you've got to boost an SR quite a ways to get to your goal. No info on the Ford, the Ecotec has been swapped in a 510 here on The Realm. Check the projects forum. For your goal power levels, R200CLSD would probab...

Re: Hello

My gas cap is leaking too, and I can't seem to find the right size anywhere. I ended up replacing the rubber gasket around the cap, but it is still leaking a bit. Someone will have a factory gas cap, and those fit best. The lockable aftermarket ones never seemed to seal well, as they were "uni...

Re: stock 510 tach hooking up to MSD 6 ignition

DQ Volume 3 Issue 2 - Tech Q&A - Have you installed a MSD ignition black box and can't get your stock tach to work? If you're using a magnetic trigger distributor, like the factory Nissan unit from the late '70s, the addition of the correct MSD tach adapter can get your tach working again.

Re: Electric issues - alot of things not working

White wire is larger diameter and separate feed into the fuse box than the bunched/plug wire sets? That's the feed into the fuse box (and, hence, your wiring harness) from the alternator. See Datsunmike's post above about the fuseable link that is inline with this feed from the alt.

Re: Fiberglass front valance

Is Troy making them or buying them? If he's making them, the fitment is probably Troy-centric; if he's buying them in then finding out who is making them will probably expand the number of people that can give you advice.

Re: Electric issues - alot of things not working

Would also recommend tracking down a wiring diagram for your car. Lots of factory manuals have been scanned at datsun510.com. You'll also need a Volt/Ohm Meter (VOM) and some basic wiring tools (stripper, soldering iron, e-tape, spare fuses). I'd also recommend giving your fuse box a vinegar bath (r...

Getting to be a few 510ers in the south east. The annual East Coast 510 meet is coming up in May at Summit Point!

Re: Hello! Hi! from Sacramento

Hello and welcome to The Realm. Still a lot of 510/Datsun guys in Sac and the greater Sac area. Looks like your project has some stories to tell. Good to see another car being loved.

Re: Sr20det install with steering cross link

Depends in large part on how the engine's mounted. You can make mounts to position it just so. Don't the Australian's offer flipped center links with engineering certs?

I flipped mine, 220V MIG put it on like butter. Been a lot of flipped center links with no reports of failure that I know of.
