We're hopefully getting closer to wrapping this up. I loaded the (core) motor into the car and drove to Montreal today. LoadedUp.jpg A few hours later the 'new' 142,000 km motor was prepped. While I was at the Volvo specialist, I went ahead with a few other parts that needed addressing: As previousl...

Re: 2005 Volvo V50

... Great project for you to do with your son, too. Or maybe, great project for you to do for your son?... Truth be told the project could have likely been done by now had he been a little more 'engaged'. He loves cars, and is super keen to see this v50 on the road, but sometimes he likes to take t...

Re: 2005 Volvo V50

There's a couple of ground hogs out there who are full of shit w/r to a quick Spring (-30c this past wknd and 15cm snow tomorrow), so progress has been slow. I'm definitely investing in a proper heating system for my garage this summer. We managed to drop the motor and separate the tranny with littl...

Winter update - little to update

I haven't made a lot of progress on the 510 this winter. I picked up a 2005 Volvo V50 project for my son ( http://www.the510realm.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=29570 ) which will keep me occupied until the end of March. It will also keep him out of my Datsun so I can enjoy more seat time this coming s...

2005 Volvo V50

My 17 y/o son is in need of a car for work. My objective was to find something safe and reliable, but easy on the wallet in case it ends up in a ditch (insurance only covers liability). Day1.jpg After a bit of searching I picked up this 2005 Volvo V50. Sport suspension and rare body kit option, 5 MT...

Winter update

Back home from my first stint in France I headed over the border to pick up some goodies. My 510 was rear ended earlier this fall. There wasn't major damage but the bumper/brackets were done and the tail light panel needed some 'persuasion' to look somewhat decent. All these part were going to get r...

Re: Carbed KA24DE

Looking good! I never bothered to balance my trigger-equipped crank pulley as I rarely hit 5K RPM - but it's a good investment regardless. Two thoughts: 1) My KA sat similar to yours (a little less rear offset due to keeping the cabin heating). However, at that height my OEM D21 exhaust manifold was...

Re: Ron Davis info for #1100 1A for KA24DE-T

For my KA24e I'm running an inexpensive eBay rad 13x25.5x2" core. It's run like a charm for several years. Similar to Bryon I think I went a little large although I still get up to 160 deg on the coldest of non-snow/salt days. IMO surf eBay and find the sized rad of your choice that has proper ...

Project EFI update

Are you selling the megajolt? That's the eventual plan, IF I can get the stock 240sx EFI system to work properly. Otherwise as a plan 'B' I'll be using the crank/timing wheel and sensor for a MegaSquirt setup. With regards to my EFI project, I'm plugging along. Many of the easy parts have been acqu...

Re: So I drove around Japan looking for a Bluebird...

My Watanabes are 14x7 ET0, tires are a wide'ish 195/60 r14 Falken Azenis. I have 280zx struts up front with a 5mm spacer which still leaves a marginally narrower track up front compared to OEM. It's a *tight* fit on the back, fresh tires sometimes get a very light sidewall shave after their first au...

Gorgeous car, that interior is pristine!

What rims are you running, Watanabe Type B ? If so what size/width?

They look nearly identical to what I'm running except your center is so much cleaner!

EFI conversion followed by boost?

It's that time of the year where I'm almost giddy to get started on this winter's project. I was originally supposed to keep things pretty minor as I'll be in France for 5 weeks this winter (2 separate trips) so I won't have a lot of time to wrench but the need for EFI has taken priority. The plan i...

Re: Chasing my Tail...

... No the spacer orentation doesn't matter. What matters is that the letter on the spacer matches the letter on the housing. Letters represent different spacer lengths and housing lenth tolerances... I'm still not completely following what you're saying. There's a letter on the spacer that matches...
