Re: L18 questions

OP, get your hands on a copy of the How To Hotrod book. All the L16/L18 hot-rodding tips you could want. At least give you a good base. People like Rebello and Troy have taken the game on, but at a cost of cubic dollars.

Digital copy of HtH is up at The 510 Archives.

Re: CV Failure

So...these kits are adapters/CVs/axles. If the CVs are poor and the rest of the bits are in good condition, why not just get some better CVs? They're cheap, compared to getting a whole new kit. Ran the Lobro parts (CVs and boots) with Matt's v1 adapters, no gaskets for the boots, never had grease es...

Re: WTB L-16 Lower Alternator mount

Definitely drill the mount to accept a 10mm through-bolt for the alternator. The stock 8mm bolt is well known to snap from the loads. The OP appears to be saying that the mount he has takes 10mm bolts to the block, however. I don't recall this being on L20Bs I've had more recently, but then it's bee...

Re: 1971 2 Door 70s build

Did the Wilwood setup come from T3 as well, or did you DIY a bracket/rotor swap?

Re: CV Failure

But if the issue is grease leaving the joint between CV and boot flange, why throw the CV out for the problem? Better boots may be the cure for what ails you.

Hello Dave, welcome to The Realm. Definitely well-bought. And probably the only CARB-legal 510 in CA. If you could put in your general location in your profile, that'll help us know where you are and where locals might look out for you.

Re: CV Failure

OE CVs don't require yearly service. What brand of CV is Troy supplying? I used Lobro CVs and boots in Whitebird, but I never did the miles Lou does on his car.

If you're putting ten pumps of a grease gun into each CV every year, I'd really, really wonder where all that CV grease is going.

Location, pictures, description, price will be key. 510 market has gone up, up, up in recent years, and good cars bring good money.
