Re: Solex side draft jet sizing

FWIW, on an L20B bored 1mm with dished pistons, peanut head, 44mm intake/35mm exhaust valves, .480"/280* cam and Mikuni 44s with 34mm chokes I'm running 160 mains, 220 airs, 57.5 pilot and 2.0 needle valves. Runs great on our shitty 91 Octane CA gas.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Installed drip rail trim! Gotta admit, gave myself 50/50 chance of succeeding with this. Never installed (or removed) drip rail trim before. Required a lot of careful whacking with a soft rubber mallet, but it went on! Stoked! https://i.imgur.com/6ll8Sae.jpg https://i.imgur.com/tXprC3v.jpg https://i...

Re: what to do with stock struts

Maybe also check if any of the strut insulators are the offset version. Don't think they ever came stock on 510 struts, but they may have been retrofitted, and were a stealthy and cheap way to get some negative camber. As I recall you could get back to close to zero or slightly negative using those ...

Re: what to do with stock struts

T3 just issued a new offer for donor struts. Unfortunately, stock 510 struts aren't on the list, but 280ZX are. That's an impressive pile 'o struts. Stock 510 rotors are NLA. Maybe cull the herd for salvageable rotors? You could corner the market.

Re: Rear Quickor sway bar issue

So, I have been down this path before with my Quickor rear bar. 1st of all, it's a 7/8" bar so that gives the correct roll stiffness to offset the longer arms vs. the more common 3/4" 510 bars. It works as good or better than any of the shorter arm 3/4" bars, plus it's 3 or 4 position adjustable, pl...

Re: Diff to crossmember torque specs

FYI Installing the long diff-to-crossmember bolts from the bottom makes it possible to remove the diff from the car without having to drop the crossmember. They look to be installed from the top in your original post.

Re: 71 Pumpkin Pie Build Unflared SR20

New vto installed. Over inch clearance to wheelwell on rear and about 3/16 to control arm.. I think with a modified arm 225s will fit.. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ixxnxfates05wf3/IMG_20190305_150758_419.jpg?dl=1 That's just beautiful! Looks like Sahara gold. One of my favorite 510 colors.
