Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Progress is pretty slow, but it's moving forward! Since I got my OEM 510 mounts and want to use them insted of the chinese crap. I decided to try using spacers as Pista_510 suggested. I estimated 1/2" on both sides would bring the brackets to the correct crossmember width. I just installed them tod...

Re: 510 help in northeast

Missed this early, but I am up in the Boston area. But find my way down in RI and CT from time to time. Don't have many parts I'm willing to part with... stock pilling them for myself hahaha... Parts are definitely harder to come by locally out here, but they are available. Here is a stock pile of p...

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.... Emailed DP...

Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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 ...
