Teething issues...

The bulk of the work is done on the motor install, now it's 'just' figuring out all the little issues now that you have car running...

... the fun but sometimes frustrating part of going back and doing things you've already completed, again :-)

Keep us posted.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Got the SR dialed in. Turns out that my engine does not like vent-to-atmo BOVs, so I replumbed it to recirculate. Amazing difference. Finally installed a proper front swaybar. Tearing apart the exhaust now and welding in new flanges. Modifying the transmission crossmember so the exhaust doesn't hav...

Re: WTB Z20E Rods 152.5mm

Mike - you're a wealth of knowledge sometimes... I had no idea Z20's were in any 720 PU's. Here in the Great White North, we saw only NapsZ 2.2's Up to MY '82) and 2.4's for the rest of the 720's with exception of the first 6 months of 1980 were the 720's delivered here had L20B's in both 2WD and 4W...

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

Damn - that is an awesome deal.

I still have a set of A048's I bought from Keith to burn off in 2019. But sign me up for the following year for sure.

Re: Photobucket trying to blackmail me.

.... and I think Rimski is currently ice racing with Bert Vorgons latest Anti-gravity decelerator on that very same patch of ice!

At least these guys have a good sound track!

Re: Headlight fix

When we did a quick check on the last drive - the switching side of the circuit was working fine. I could clearly hear (and feel thanks to the old mechanical part) that the relay was switching from one circuit to the other just fine - at least the relay was working. Checking that the contact point w...

Maybe their long term business model realization backfired! :-D

Re: FS fiberglass Fenders & front spoiler

Is the front air dam for a flared or non-flared set of fenders?

I be interested - if you could post a photo from the side - thanks.

Regarding the patch panel forward of the wheel - did you panel beat that yourself?

Re: Noobie's 510 project

Absolutely a R180 solution is in the works. As FYI, I'm bringing several R160 CV sets the 3rd week of November to Vancouver. I'm hopeful to have a R180 set as well for anyone who wants to see it. Fritz, it would be great to meet up with you, and now we have extra good reason. If you'd like to plan ...

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

I was kinda hoping you'd keep the olive colour, in shiny new paint it suits the era of car.

Progress is good, you'll be happy to drive it next year, maybe?

Re: 6 inches of Rust

Any idea what your A/F ratio is?

Maybe it's just burning plain rich and wasting fuel....

Just a thought, because you really should see to much of a change. The bigger engine has more torque - essentially you could be driving it around at lower rpm.

Re: Binky!

I lost interest when they re-invented the heater. But Mike, you have to admit they did a great job of stuffing and heater-A/C unit into a very custom tiny spot. Today’s episode actually spared us some machining montages. That’s a first. But the remote mounted alternator and AC bracket was a neat to...
