Re: Keith Law's complete TALES FROM THE GREAT ROLLING DYNO

As a kid, my father gave me two books that would wind up fueling a lifelong passion for outdoor adventures. The first was this: IMG_5109.JPG We couldn't afford to formally participate in the Boy Scouts, but my father did as a kid and passed this manual on to me. I would spend countless hours every n...

Re: Hello - Introduction

Funny...my car is titled as a 72. But, I was looking at the list thinking, wow...those vins are much higher than mine (266055). Sure enough, checked the manufacture date, which is 3/1971. Ughh...gotta get that corrected this summer.

Re: Bert Vorgon's Spring Maintenance Project

I'm always amazed at all the wizardry that is going on with your car. I learn something new every time. One thing I haven't seen yet - on any Datsun for that matter - is one of these devices from Masterlube. I intend to install one on my 510 eventually...but it is at the bottom of the list. Perhaps ...

Re: Should I run 15's or 14's?

A while ago I emailed T3 and asked their recommendation on wheel size for their 280zx coilovers. There recommendation is 15x7+12. Likely, this is the same wheel size from the 280zx, which supplies the required hub assembly that is necessary for utilizing 280zx coilovers. I'm going to attempt it with...

Re: 2005 Volvo V50

Darn...I really like Volvos. We have a 2010 Volvo sedan. The inline turbo 5 cyl is truly unique in both its performance and sound. Volvo makes good stuff. Too bad that engine (both of them) were so abused.

Re: FS - MSD5 (edited)

Alright....my memory failed me when I posted this. But, this is actually a MSD5, not MSD6a. My apologies. Included are some photos. Asking $80 plus shipping, which shouldn't be too bad. Let me know if you have questions.

Re: Keith Law's complete TALES FROM THE GREAT ROLLING DYNO

So, I was able to dig up some photos from our trip a number of years ago to Ouray. We took these photos along the offroad trail up to Yankee Boy Basin. It is rated as a moderate offroad trail, but the Xterra handled it just fine. (I love the xterra by the way...very disappointed they discontinued.) ...

Re: Keith Law's complete TALES FROM THE GREAT ROLLING DYNO

hey there Keith, I currently hold a bachelors degree in social work, but I've gone about as far as I can professionally with that degree. So, about 4 years ago I started taking classes to earn a masters degree in business administration. I'm just about wrapped up, but I'm tired....2hr commute each d...

Re: Keith Law's complete TALES FROM THE GREAT ROLLING DYNO

Clint, having only spent a short while in Colorado (took in the Pikes Peak Hill Climb a couple years ago - crossed that off the bucket list), i was certainly reminded that this area is very much like the interior of British Columbia - dry and hot for the most part, with lots of beautiful valleys, r...

Re: Keith Law's complete TALES FROM THE GREAT ROLLING DYNO

Those trees are amazing! Here in Colorado, the largest pines I have found are maybe 75% of the circumference of the ones you guys are standing in front of. Those pines, found in a state park area, were huddled together in a small ravine with a good but slow-moving water supply. I think the ravine pa...

FS - MSD5 (edit)

Pulled the MSD6a out of my car and have no plans to use it. Worked when disconnected from the car. Otherwise, no testing or disassembly has occurred by me. I do not have install instructions or documentation. But, when I contacted MSD about wiring diagrams, they suggested searching their discussion ...
