Re: electrical problem - fuse box

Fusable link is down attached to the starter motor, that is likely also gone.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

I have so much to tidy up it is unreal, you should see my basement now! Too many hobbies that require "gear", let alone the car related stuff.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Removed the AN fitting yesterday and cleaned the dead Teflon tape out of the threads, the oil sure had made it go weird. Did a nice triple wrap with fresh tape and made sure it really was tight in the bung. Really an End to an Era yesterday, virtually cleaned out the last of my 510 related stuff fro...

Waxed it, Did my usual on all the rubber with my Teflon, spray, cleaned the interior and got at touching up the paint chips after a long winter of crud on the road. Try to get paint that matches is a ...

Re: Knox Mountain Hillclimb 2018

4 days till Knox! Weather looks to be quite hot, so if you are attending, drink lots of water! I plan to get up the hill BEFORE the heat of the day, so it is downhill after that, not as much work.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Last year I noticed a haze of oil over the starter, wiring in that area, the coil, and of course the lower frame rail. I checked all my oil lines, valve cover gasket, etc. Could not see any reason for it. The other day, when replacing the O2 sensor, out in BRIGHT SUNLIGHT, I could trace the haze up ...

Re: 510 Day - Byron's place in Maple Ridge

No engine pics, I guess as we see these cars all the time and I have engine pics, was a non-issue at Byron's.

I will endeavor to do better next time, for you non-local enthusiasts! :lol:

Re: 510 Day - Byron's place in Maple Ridge

Thanks Jim! Hope your doing well over there. Both Tracey and I, likely were some of the last of a modified street, yet almost full blown race car, that drove our cars to events, raced, and drove them back home. Her and I would race that last link up to Westwood, she had killer bottom end and I would...

Re: 510 Day - Byron's place in Maple Ridge

For historical reference, here are the original permutations as they had just finally rolled out of the shop at Andy's in 1984. We went up to Westwood for photo op and testing. These were taken on the upper pit area.

Andy built all the flares and air dam molds.

Re: 510 Day - Byron's place in Maple Ridge

That is Jamie Mitchell's car! I just had this discussion with my wife...so many Bert clones... We originally built 3 510's like mine...Tracey's and Georges. Then Jamie Built his, Cam Thorkelson the Pissan Nissan, Dave Doan's...all had the same flares and Specialty air dam and other than Cam's, were ...

Re: 510 Day - Byron's place in Maple Ridge

Thank you Byron, Joyce and Barry for hosting and cooking up some great food for us all! Nice to see everyone, as we head into a season of driving and events. As some of you know I am now retired after 48 years in my industry. It was so nice on a week day to just roll over to my car and have the luxu...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Drove the 510 over to Andy's yesterday for a look over and TD. As I suspected, and the Innovate LC-1 did kick up an E-8 code, the sensor was faulty out of the box! FYI...the Innovate would go through the heat cycle, then the first blip of the throttle had the light go right to dead rich...second bli...
