Re: The Bronze - '69er Resto Project and continuing build-up.

In addition to the photo a few posts back, I've been asked to post up some photos of my Carb manifold (opposed o the EFI manifold in the previous post). So here is the carb manifold photos from when I assembled the Bronze with a rather crusty set of original Solex/Mikuni carbs which were purchased i...

Damn, those wheels look way bigger on your truck than they do on my Armada!

Re: Water flow through the L series heads

I’ll assume there is a similar mod there Rob, Jamie’s car hardly sees the light of day any more, but next time I get the chance... I would assume there is some relavence to this mod. As the FIA head also addressed the issue. Jim thanks for you input on the L-6 engines. The only issue I see with the ...

Water flow through the L series heads

OK, this post is just a bit of a question regarding water flow in our old L series head - for those of you who haven't stepped up a few decades in engine design. I was browsing on a Z forum, and came across this; https://www.facebook.com/godzillaraceworks/photos/pcb.543647529333972/543647399333985/?...

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

Jeff, I like the splined sway bars due to their adjustable center tubes being torsionally different rates. When I was building stancions for my Tilton bar, I thought that a tubular bar could actually run through the box section under the radiator with plates welded to each side of the inner fender w...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

I’m with you on the ‘body work sucks’ department. I’ll only do my own! And even though I bought a bunch of fancy tools (and I went back to finishing by hand anyways), it still sucks! So I totally feel for you and your look in the photo. But the photo revealed one other thing. Are you going to take t...

Re: Five-Hundred and Ten

Progress is really coming along. Fabrication of the complete dog leg section of the door jamb, especially on the drivers side looks like it’s going to be a real challenge. That’s a huge section of material missing. Good that you are confirming fit of the panels as you move along. And also quite fort...

Re: Part Numbers

It’s possible that this is a Tilton, not sure if there were other brands made. But there are no PN’s etched which Fidanza said there would be if it was theirs. We'll find out shortly if the Fidanza friction plate will work. Resurfacing wasn’t an option, a ceramic puck type friction disc was used and...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

Many production cars take their intake air from the fender well area - ahead of the front wheels. And as you noted, they are baffled from getting sprayed with water - both from the front and from the tire - you could easily do the same. You'd have to submerge the car into 8-12" of water at spee...

Re: WTB: 1968 510 sss guage cluster/odometer

I have the only known 68/9 SSS in Canada, and I believe I’ve only seen 2 in the US in cars. There is likely more, but I’ve only seen one 69 SSS car (a Coupe) which still has its original dash and it resides in Seattle - under heavy guard! This is a really rare piece to find, there were very few 1968...

Re: Dime Quarterly ending

Those scans are cool. I wonder if Cam's car there with the Midas logo on the side is the one he still has today. "Pisn'Nisn" or whatever the plate says lol It’s the same car, although since it was reborne in orange I guess it’s old nick name ‘Grassy’ (given to it by Cams daughter) no long...

Re: Swamp thing, from drift car to Endure car

Great progress - that’s sure a grabber colour! So I’m curious what you planned mode of power is? I ask because you’re a huge SR-T guy, but unlike most of your past builds I don’t see the rad support modified for the IC piping.... You have me scratching my head right now. Looking forward to the surpr...

Re: Five-Hundred and Ten

Nice job on the lower inner fender well patch below the bumper mounts. This is a really common repair in this area as it just seems to be a place where water collects in that box section and it's really quite thin material from the factory - where the "frame rails" are significantly thicke...
