Re: Subaru STi R180 Option from FutoFab

By the way, any R160 VLSD from a Subaru MY2000 or newer will have an updated style VLSD that 510 stubs will bolt right in as long as you swap the buttons over into the side gears from the old Datsun R160. These VLSD can be found standard in any 2000+ Outback with cold weather package in 4.4 ratio i...

Re: WTB: Steering Box Plug

I tried to order 3/8 BSPT male breather vent (#9847K1) from McMaster-Carr online but they cancelled it saying they don't ship to Canada. :roll: I could have it shipped to US and P/U with other Datsun parts I typically fetch every 2-3 months, but for something that small it would have been nice to ge...

June update

Project 280z continues to plug along and I'm having a blast. I'm progressing nicely and becoming more confident that I'll be able to fire up & possibly drive her next spring. I had to cut away a bit more of the passenger footwell than originally planned. PassengerFootwell_Rot_1.jpg PassengerFoot...

Out for a cruise

Ah, so my carb experience isn't really any different than other 510 owners then. Thanks for the info Byron. BeausBrewery.jpg I've got to say, this is just about the best time of the year for 510 cruising and enjoying those carbs. I took my furthest drive to date in the 510 this past weekend, all the...

Re: New Member, Ontario Canada

... A lot more money than the last 510. But the markets changed lots in the past 6 years... Hey Dadzsun, actually I'm West of you in Kaladar.... Damn right the market has changed (East coast at least) - so glad I got mine about 6.5 years ago. My car was recently re-appraised at over 3x the value I ...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

I like the carb set up. Honestly I'm having second thoughts about pulling the carbs. It's a unique/Frankenstein setup that somewhat miraculously works just about perfect. It's only during cold starts that I sometime lack the patience to wait for 1-2 min for warm up. This setup is not something you ...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

What in your eyes is the aesthetic problem with the wheel openings? Personal taste is subjective of course, but I love yours as is ;-) My only issue with the rear arch is how it sits lower than the front arch. When the car is lowered & level (ie: rocker panel parallel to the ground) the rear wh...

New jets

When driving the car 7/10ths and below it's been quite good this summer. At WOT, especially above 4000 RPM fueling slowly swings into an excessively lean condition (16-17:1). I'm thinking the 2.25" exhaust I installed last year is likely responsible for the change in A/F (as per Innovate WBO2)....

Walking back in time, <1100km Z20e from a 1980 200sx

Andrew forwarded me a contact in Hamilton region who was giving away a motor/tranny/wiring that was originally planned for a swap in his dad's 1972 Datsun p/u but was never finished. Originally thinking it was a KA I was happy to pick it up as a backup for my 510, and possibly use the 71c tranny on ...

Re: Double or Nothing - 280z GT cruiser

All comments are appreciated Byron. That's why I'm posting here, so that I can learn - along with potential other inexperienced builders reading this thread. In fact, I typically wait a few days/week after posting my thoughts/plans just to make sure knowledgeable members had a chance to view and co...

Passenger rail now welded in

Despite a weekend full of helping family members with household tasks, I still managed a few hours on the 280. Removing the OEM and PO's patched-on metal from the TC bracket took a surprising amount of time. RadClearance_OEMvsNewRail.jpg I'm really pleased with how everything is turning out. As I'm ...
