Re: Wiring Harness

Recommend you get a wiring diagram for your car and study it long before you start running wires. A universal aftermarket harness is fine and good, but it won't be a complete solution for you. A 510's headlight switch has five wires on it - how many wires is the aftermarket harness sending? Your fir...

Re: New Member / 79 510 sports coupe

Hello and welcome to The Realm. If you could put your location in your profile, that'll help us know where you are. Lots of "more get up" options to be had here, but they're all money-sinks! :)

Re: Hey, new here from Pitt Meadows

Hello and welcome to The Realm. If you have any pictures of past 510 projects, please post them up. Vintage pics are always awesome, they remind me of FiveTen Again.

Re: Ignition coil

Can't see much reason to spend money to fix nothing broke. Knowing the age of the coil is no guarantee of future performance.

Re: Electronic ignition - what's the best option

Large-cap L20B points distributors are still preferred, to reduce any instance of cross arching. Depends on if you have a problem or not. Would also recommend looking at the advance curve and adjusting if necessary, since you'll have it somewhat apart. Factory EI has always worked, though, and would...

Re: EFI surge tank under car

Here's an inline pump and filter mounted to the vertical surface of rear passenger seat floor. Plenty of room for all that and a surge tank. It was only after getting all this done that icehouse suggested mounting the pump to the crossmember, since the crossmember had rubber bushings to the body alr...

Re: EFI surge tank under car

Any reason to not run an in-tank pump?

Alternatively, there is room to mount a tank and pump on the front side of the rear crossmember and under the rear seat bottom bump.

Re: New member - sgplancer

Hello and welcome to The Realm. Your new project looks very period '90s with the mono scheme, spoiler, and tire and flare package. Not a spoiler I'm used to seeing, any idea of its provenance?

Looks like a clean car, do you have a plan yet?

Re: L16 Twin Carb

Tons of sites for SUs. Check out the Dime Quarterly backissues at The 510 Archives. There are three comprehensive articles I wrote back in the day. My old website is long gone, but the info lives in the pages of DQ.

Re: Brakes questions

Bias adjusters plumbed in the rear line are pretty rare for a 510 with your setup, are you sure you're going to need one? For the BMC push rod, you can use any threaded rod, it's all about getting the length right. I no longer have a spare to measure, someone here will. Needs to be adjustable, thoug...

Re: Hello

300WHP is fairly rare for a 510. Even a stock KA with 145WHP makes for a quick 510, and you've got to boost an SR quite a ways to get to your goal. No info on the Ford, the Ecotec has been swapped in a 510 here on The Realm. Check the projects forum. For your goal power levels, R200CLSD would probab...

Re: Hello

My gas cap is leaking too, and I can't seem to find the right size anywhere. I ended up replacing the rubber gasket around the cap, but it is still leaking a bit. Someone will have a factory gas cap, and those fit best. The lockable aftermarket ones never seemed to seal well, as they were "universa...

Re: stock 510 tach hooking up to MSD 6 ignition

DQ Volume 3 Issue 2 - Tech Q&A - Have you installed a MSD ignition black box and can't get your stock tach to work? If you're using a magnetic trigger distributor, like the factory Nissan unit from the late '70s, the addition of the correct MSD tach adapter can get your tach working again.
