Aftermarket Engine Mounts - CRAP

So I purchased a couple of new engine mounts from Rock Auto. Beck Arneley 1040827. When they arrived, I was surprised by a couple of things. The first of course is the apparent quality. The metal plate these these are made from is about 20 gauge tin rather than the ~3/16 thick plate on the stock one...

Re: Electronic (EI) Ignition module failure. Recovery mode and trouble shooting

I walked into the local aut parts emporium I deal with (Auto Value) and asked for a GM ignitor for an 87 caprice 5L. There are about 150 GM products that had that module. LX301 is the Ac Delco part number I think. They said they had two kinds, standard and premium. $98 for the standard and $160 for ...

Re: Electronic (EI) Ignition module failure. Recovery mode and trouble shooting

Rock Auto has listings for them between $140-180 CDN. They are still available, but pricey. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/nissan,1981,280zx,2.8l+l6,1209338,ignition,ignition+control+module+(icm),7172 A good GM ignitor (pertronix or Accel) is more like a $100 shipped. Since I'm getting away fro...

Re: Electronic (EI) Ignition module failure. Recovery mode and trouble shooting

Another note about these EI modules After running around today doing errands, with the 'new' EI module, I've noticed significantly better overall performance and start up, both hot and cold. So this means that these modules not only start mis-firing when they are about to die, there may also be sign...

Electronic (EI) Ignition module failure. Recovery mode and trouble shooting

Over the weekend I took my 510 on a jaunt to Revelstoke and back. Other the crappy rainy weather, +3C temps in Golden, and the closed highway 1 west of Revelstoke, the trip was mechanically uneventful except for one timy little item. Spark. Spark was there 99.9% of the time, but the other 0.1% of th...

Re: Post a pic of your Dime.

Trying something different this weekend. Signed up with a buddy to enter something (boon doggle?) called the "Royal Rally" IMG_2745.JPG It's kind of a scavenger hunt for rich folks as most of the cars are exotics and fancy ass dolled up BMW's and the like. I think it's a dang excuse for th...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Haven't been keeping track of which diff you have, but if you have a diff that has stubs held in my a single long central bolt with a 14 mm head, please let know if you see anything unusual when you get the CV's off.

Re: '69 510 - Lysholm Twin-Screw Project

Putting fresh grease in the joint caps will extend the life to the point where you may never need to service them again. Replacements are available, search for ATV700 .

Re: Ignition coil

Two pieces of advice on coils. 1. The ignition system that fires the coil, has to be matched to the coil in terms of the coil resistance. Too much current (too low coil resistance) and the transistor in the IE module gets hot and burns up. Also the coil itself can get hot and fail. Use your current ...
