Re: So I drove around Japan looking for a Bluebird...

I did get a few things worked on, but I haven't gotten too far. I seem to hit roadblocks on everything, mostly my fault. First thing I did was put in the eDizzy, but I'm thinking I will need to get a new pedestal or maybe play some more with it and move the plug wires one tower over. For now I can o...

Re: So I drove around Japan looking for a Bluebird...

Today I decided to tackle the valve stem seals. I was going to do it yesterday before I took all those pictures, but I left my spark plug socket with my other tools in the states. So I picked one up and tackled the job today. Good news is the plugs verified my carbs are tuned correctly. I utilized t...

Re: So I drove around Japan looking for a Bluebird...

First off I apologize for the insanely long update. I'm finally back home from my deployment. I have some time off work now and plan to spend most of it with my family, but did pick up a few car parts to stick on the Bluebird. Ironically, key parts were backordered that I purchased, so I'm kind of s...

I wonder if there was an option for some side vent? Or these are for a different car.

Anyone have any idea what trim peice this is?

Came across this on Yahoo Auctions Japan. I recognize the Coupe insignia, but not the finned things. They look similar to the faux hood vents, but those don't have an opening in the back that I've seen. Maybe something from a different car?

Distributor Choice with MSD 6AL

I was just mulling over some ideas for down the road and was looking into the MSD stuff. I know that there is a myriad of opinions on MSD devices, but let's put that aside. I got to thinking about using one and then thought about my distributor and it's tiny cap and how much larger the later style d...

Re: So I drove around Japan looking for a Bluebird...

Thanks for the compliments. It is by no means perfect and has it's problems like all of them. Once I get to the states and have my own garage I can start to really dig into it and get it to where I want.

Re: So I drove around Japan looking for a Bluebird...

I guess I never updated this. I've been deployed for a few months now and knew it was on the horizon when I bought the car. I put some stuff on Facebook, but never updated this thread. I got what work done I could, but family took most of my attention. I really wanted to spend time with them before ...

Re: Production Numbers

There's a scan of an official NoJ notice regarding JDM production, but it doesn't list out by model, just by year. Also states they have no idea what Australia produced. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0ByCvxnHNk90Sa0VhemFkSGhPc00 510 Production Figures.jpg That's cool. I really wish they had a br...

WTB: 1800 SSS Grill Badge

I'm hoping someone has one of these around they would be willing to part with. Looking specifically for an 1800 SSS grill badge from a 510.

Thanks in advance.

My low beams have Cibie H4 conversions on them and they work great.

Re: Variable compression engines

I love driving older cars, but when it comes to an accident I'd definitely rather be in a new one (batteries or not). I think the '59 Bel Air vs the '09 Malibu crash the NTSB did proves that point pretty well. Even though it was slightly set up to prove a point IMO. They did an offset head on with a...

Re: Project Miracle Whip - 1968 510 4door s13 sr20det

Well that's a let down. I always thought they filled in pits and such when they chromed things. But I've not ever had anything chromed. I wonder if you could get some filler in there and smooth it out before spraying matte black in. Noone would be the wiser looking at them. Overall they do look very...
