Re: Is there aftermarket calipers that use metric fasteners?

Yeah to big for 13's. I might just give up and buy a Wilwood kit from DPracing since my brakes are being shitty right now. What wheels are you planning on running? Ive got the DP racing Wilwood kit that is supposed to clear 13's... but had a hard time finding a 13" wheel that cleared.... Email...

My setup is - 15x7 Rota RBs +25 offset - 205/50r15 Falken Azenzis Shortened 510 struts - now with T3 coil-over sleeves and Camber plates - Required 10mm spacer and longer studs to clear the strut housing (esentially making the wheel a +15), limited with how low I can drop the spring perch on the coi...

Re: '71 4 Door - Mikuni'd KA24DE

Wow your engine isolators are really stressed. Looks to me like all you need to do is modify the steel engine mount to properly fit the stock 510 isolators sitting in their original stock position on the crossmember. This is what I did for my SR but I did it with everything out of the car. If the d...

Re: '71 4 Door - Mikuni'd KA24DE

Northeast cruse would be fun. Listen, use the Z trans isolator and just shim it until you get your desired trans height. Yeah that poly isolator combined with the engines poly isolators would create a buzz box fer-sure and is what I've always heard. I run the Z trans isolator and stock 510 rubber m...

Re: '71 4 Door - Mikuni'd KA24DE

When your ready to go pick up parts let me know, maybe we can go up together or I can meet you there. It'll be nice meeting another 510er though there are others in Ma, Main...

Re: '71 4 Door - Mikuni'd KA24DE

I also found that the tranny mount (280zx) made mt KA tranny sit lower than I wanted. Have the chevy poly mount that you are using on the shelf but really don't want the extra NVH. How are you finding your mount is in terms of vibration and/or noise? Very rough... Really haven't driven it much yet,...

Re: '71 4 Door - Mikuni'd KA24DE

Wow, what a story. I fully enjoyed it. Thanks so much for taking the time to put all those years into a couple pages for us to read. Not sure about the other board members, but reading about your head freeze plug issue was enough to have me going for my decent bottle of rum! ....... Anyways, glad t...

Re: '71 4 Door - Mikuni'd KA24DE

I finished getting everything back together that night and crashed, letting the epoxy cure over night on the core plug. Got up in the morning added coolant, cranked for oil pressure, and fired it... NO LEAKS!!!! Let it get to temp, double checked everything and hauled ass to the DMV to get it VIN ve...

... and it still leaked... only this time I was able to see that it was leaking from the core plug at the back of the head...

Re: '71 4 Door - Mikuni'd KA24DE

Temp gauge was pegged- I shut her down and opened the hood... but my worst fears happened... you could hear it hissing and see cooling pissing out of the back... but hard to see exactly where as the engine was so close to the firewall... but at this point I figured the HG was blown... I let it cool ...

Then I got to wiring... boy was this fun... thanks again for the help from Tim via text tech support he helped me get a few things sorted out (ignition wires and what not...) I think I said the Highway 13 kit before... but I actually used the Highway 15 kit. Fuse board is nice, the wires seem pretty...

Re: '71 4 Door - Mikuni'd KA24DE

Let me take a step back here and say... while the last post makes it seem like dropping the KA in was easy... let me tell you it was not.... Maybe I have a wonky crossmember or I dont know what... but I could not get the 510 mounts to line up on the x-member... I wrestled with it for hours before ha...
