Radiator choices available today

Hi all. I wanted to throw a general question out there. I’m looking for a radiator choice that will be available for years to come. I know we used to use VW golf rads, back when 80’s Golfs were around! I would like to find a commonly available OEM rad that could be had anywhere with little time in c...

Re: The White Sloth Project

Damn, nice. I have a couple of those valve covers, one matches the actual car it came on. Likely the rarest production bird of them all on these shores.

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

An update… Geez, where to start. A new engine - yes that did happen last month. Another new 510 also happened last month, for this I need to step up a level. Long story short, I’m going vintage racing with a proven 510 that had been raced locally for 15 years or more. I bough the car turn key, Becau...

Re: 280 5 speed swap in a 510

You’ll need to shorten the sedan driveshaft 4 7/8” if everything else (motor location, diff) are in their original locations.

Hope this helps.

Re: 2022 Drives - Run beyond Hope

Got the car out for a test drive on the A520 street tires. Glad to report that replacing the rear 7/8” BMC for a 3/4 BMC, I have: - better brake modulation - better overall pedal feel - full range of bias adjustment F/R - I can verify that you can fully interchange a Tilton 75 series MC for a Wilwoo...

Re: 2022 Drives - Run beyond Hope

I did get the brake master cylinder change done last night. But it was too late in the evening to wake up the neighbourhood and go for a test drive, so I’ll do that after work today. New tires also mounted yesterday, thanks Keith :-). I just have to change the wheels and tires on the car now. All go...

Re: Clutch and Pressure Plate for L18

Yes, the L16 application will work fine, noting as Mike mentioned that the clutch is a 200mm unit. You bring up an interesting question, though. The roadster clutch and pressure plate were the "go-to" units that we used for all of time it seems. Now that this source has dried up and Nissan...

Once a 510’er, always a 510’er Mike.
Besides, it’s still got a Hatchi diff!

Re: 1968 510 automatic won't start

For a starting problem, it won’t be the lack of a ballast resistor. It’s job is to reduce power through the points after the car starts. I e twice had bad brand new condensers in the pst 10 years - just saying. Other than that, correct gap and timing, good leads a ignition parts, it should be good t...

Re: Welp.... With the price of SR's I've went to the dark side......

Jeff and I had the conversation over the weekend about the lack of "suitable" motors to put in the 510s. I'm old enough to know when the FJ motor was the hot-swap ticket, superseded by the rotary for a short while - long before the SR20 was even some engineer's dream. - I would agree the S...

2022 Drives - Run beyond Hope

Eh, Keith, I figured I'd start a thread here, and keep the next drive out of the Westcoast Nissan Car Show thread. Stay tuned here for drives later this year. You mentioned a drive to Lillooet - sounds like a great plan. Can we jump in the Fraser along the route? Speaking of rivers, I just pulled up...

Re: West Coast Nissan Car Show-19625 Lougheed Highway, Pitt Meadows, BC - July 10th, 2022

Thanks for posting photos, Keith. It was great to see a lot of old faces again, I think for everyone this was the single best thing happening. Glen wanted to keep the show straightforward and simple so that we could all enjoy it - and it was a success. No awards, no judges, no giveaways - just a goo...

Bright and early… I’ll be helping Glen park cars today at Pacific Nissan, I’ll look forward to seeing many of the locals. It’s been 3 years since I’ve been to a car show, I’m looking forward to it. The Bronze will be there, happy to report that the new motor break in went well yesterday, rings seam ...
