Re: Need camshaft identification

U67 is std head on most early L20B engines the B camshaft was also std. for the L20B.
Was a 62degree cam same timing as L16/L18SSS.
As far as the rest of it goes you would have to do a plot.

Re: Availability of quality main and rod bearings

The Am series is a street bearing. Have used them, they are fine, Tho the part# & listing has changed. I am out of stock so could not check on the competition ID, The king bearing site in US has no Listing for L series. See what I can find when my stock comes in.

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

+15 offset is the absolute minimum off set I will use. With good tyres I can still feel SRA steer on the road. One of the best handling 510s in Oz is using 15x6.5x33P with 195/50x15 R1Rs. He is using R31 struts, with R32 GTST callipers. The R31 strut is the same as the 200SX S12. only difference in ...

Re: Availability of quality main and rod bearings

King competition mains & rod bearings have never failed me. Also I use the Jap Taiho bearings they are also top shelf. Surely these bearings are available in the US. I have used the kings in more engines than I can remember & never had a bottom end failure. This includes 8K rpm & turbo & supercharge...

Re: My 4-door "budget build" - Warning, camera phone pics!

Make sure the 4" pipe is no thicker than the parent metal on the Xmember, A section of 4" exhaust tube is sufficient.

Re: WTB complete 1970 510 2door weatherstripping kit

I have mentioned to others that the adhesive to use on the outer squeegees ( outer door belt seal) and other places is Loctite 401. Just a series of dots is sufficient & you will use this many places on your Datto. Thank you for bringing that to my notice PoorMtnkid. We are still getting the new rub...

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

Glad to see you received your parts quickly... We specified the scissor jack in the fitting instructions as very few home builders have a portapower kit. The width of the cover is deliberately slightly narrower. Pushing down on the cover will result in a tight fit. If it hits the transmission, that'...

Re: NVH Issues

If you have whiteline bushes on the diff brace, they can be reversed which will change the angle of the Xmember. And the angle of the diff.
minor adjustments can be done by adjusting the shims.
