Re: Hello

Those are all great points to consider. I'm not set on any real power goals yet. I've had an mr2 turbo not long ago. It wasn't at 300whp, but was fairly light and way fun. Power isn't my main goal, but I do want enough. I also want to keep a reasonable weight distribution. As for suspension and brak...

Re: Hello

'Kinda R180? I haven't done enough research into this, yet. But I have noticed many people mention the R180, so I assumed the was the one to get. I won't be needing anything for a while, but thought if they were there at the pick-and-pull I might grab one. Since they will likely only be in STIs, I ...

Re: Hello

Thanks for the tips. I've made a little more progress on the 510, but I end up with more projects that need to be done on the car than I get completed. I finally got around to replacing the e-brake cable in the back, so I don't have to carry around a block of wood in the car. My gas cap is leaking t...

Re: Hello

Thanks datzenmike for the help with the vacuum tubes. I'll get that gas tank tube hooked up as soon as I can. Do you see any problem with removing the "throttle switch"? From what I found, it was used to reduce emissions and just switched the distributor points to retard timing at a certai...

Re: Hello

I'll definitely try to make the East Coast Datsun 510 meet. I may be slated for a work trip, I'll get out of it if I can. It's nice to know you have some parts, I appreciate it and will likely be asking around if there is something I can't find. Yeah, there is pretty slim pickin's on the East Coast....

Re: Hello

I've been slowly working on various aspects, mostly trying to get it running and safe-enough to drive on the road. This is how I got her. http://i.imgur.com/6hH4Saw.jpg I could never get that DCH340 tuned right, so I ended up putting a new Weber 32/36 on it. To be honest, I'm not sure about capping ...

Hello

I picked up '72 510 4-door a few months ago. I have been looking at 510s for a few years now, and got the go-ahead from my wife when there was one for sale nearby (baltimore/DC/Annapolis). It needs a lot of work, but my sons are starting to get to the age where they can help out. It will be a great ...
