Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Today I pulled the tired L20b out and starting prepping the engine bay for its new inhabitant. I also pulled the heater box out that way I can put new foam weather strip on all the the mating surfaces to seal and stop the rattles. I'll most likely blast and paint most parts. Last thing I did was tea...

LSD Rearend Question

I am currently running a Subaru 3.7 LSD Rearend. I would like to swap something in that gives me a lower gear ratio. I was reading that the 720 4x4 front diff has 4.11 and lower ratios. Now to my question. Has anybody tried to swap the guts from the Subie into an open diff? It's been awhile since I'...

Re: Weber 38 DGES

Thanks for the reply Hainz. I was beginning to think I would have had to figure it out on my own. (read break and fix things till I get it to work) I have come to terms with having to burn 91 octane to avoid detonation, and found a gas station here locally that pumps 91 with no ethanol so I am hopin...

Radiator Install

When I had a radiator problem three years back I looked into having the stock unit rebuilt. My local guy wanted 100 bucks to tank, core, and solder it. Most people would have paid the money and moved on. Unfortunately I'm not most people... I had a new engine in mind, and need a radiator to support ...

Finally getting around to it.

I have had my 510 for 5+ years now and have always had big plans for it. I am finally starting to do all the things I've had in mind all these years. I'm turning 24 this year, have no kids and a pretty good paying job. I fabricate for a living, so it only seems logical that I like to modify and buil...

Re: High Cooling System Pressure

I pulled the head last week. My pcv hose to the carb was full of milkshake. It didnt appear anywhere else though. Not in the water, or oil. I did encounter some milkshake on the fuel pump arm, and in the the very back right hand corner of the head. As I had suspected the number one cylinder had a bl...

Re: High Cooling System Pressure

thats right. the catch can is just a reservoir that holds fluid that gets spit out. Usually has the inlet on the top, and is vented to the atmosphere. And the recovery system is under pressure, and has the inlet at the bottom of the container so when the radiator and cooling system cool, the fluid i...

Re: WTB: 81 280ZX 0.040" overbore piston

I just realized that they were stock zx pistons, my block was overbored .040 to fit 'em. Youre looking for 86mm pistons huh?

Re: WTB: 81 280ZX 0.040" overbore piston

I just built myself an engine with these pistons. I had to buy six of them, Only needed the four in my L20b. I was planning on hanging on to them and buying another set to put in my other engines, but I would be willing to sell you one for $40, or both for $75. Shipping would be covered by you of co...

Re: Upper Radiator Hose, does the one from the Z fit?

I swapped the one from my 77 280z to my 71 510, and then back again. It seemed to fit just fine.

Re: High Cooling System Pressure

Thanks all. Datzenmike: I havent smelled gas in the cooling system, and there isnt any sign of a petroleum slick floating on top or anything. When I let it idle I also didnt notice any bubbles. If they were there would they float on the surface or look like cavitation though out the coolant? Vgwagon...
