Re: Spriso's SR20DET Bluebird Coupe Project

Body Dolly I'm going to have the engine compartment painted, but wanted a way to roll the car easily onto (and off of) the trailer, as well as make it easy to maneuver around the shop-- so I made a simple dolly using some Harbor Freight casters and some scrap steel. It mounts to the front crossmemb...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

I'm not an engineer, but I think that you are going to want to make sure that your drive shaft flanges for your CV conversions are phased the same orientation -- it could cause you some vibration issues. Might be nothing to it, but I know that it can be an issue on U-joints. I realize that CV's will...

Re: Spriso's SR20DET Bluebird Coupe Project

Inching Forward Work continues on the Bluebird in between work commitments and customer projects. Over the summer, we had a great BBQ at Spriso HQ and I bolted on some sheet metal to remind me what this thing actually looks like and drug it out of the shop for some Oregon sunshine: https://c1.stati...

Re: SR20DET Oil Pump Priming

Oil pump priming on a SR20DE/T is very important and we developed this method years ago when we start an engine that has been sitting a long time or that has had the oil pump replaced that has worked well for us. What we do is use a simple in-line pump that is driven with a cordless drill-- we then ...

Re: 280zx rear control arms on a 510 crossmember

Yes— we put 280ZX rear control arms in the “Strutless Wonder”, but also narrowed the pickup points on the crossmember to compensate for the wider width. As I recall, it increased the track by 3/4” on each side before mods.

Re: What motor and trans in my 1960 Austin Healey Sprite?

The engine appears to have an aluminum head, so that would make it a 1967-1970 SPL311 Roadster engine.

The R16 had a matching 4-speed transmission.
