Re: Soon to be new 510 owner

Nice car! One comment on those shoulder belts, they are not mounted correctly and could break your collar bones in the event of a crash. There needs to be a bar welded behind the seat and just above your shoulders, that the shoulder belts would mount to, OR, at least go over, then down to the floor....

Re: EFI Manifolds For Sale, IR for Datsun L-Series heads

One last time...so where are all those that said they want a manifold?

I will make a hell of a deal to move this, as it is going BACK into storage very soon.

Re: Another 72 510

I bought some Honda Odyssey horns from the wreckers, as I had pitched my 510 horns many years ago. They are low profile and have a very sharp sound. I mounted mine under the rad support.

Just an FYI.... I ran the Tokico 5 ways in my Toyota GTS, where I duplicated the front of my 510 with #300 lbs springs...the Tokico's worked just fine.
