Re: Electric issues - alot of things not working

White wire is larger diameter and separate feed into the fuse box than the bunched/plug wire sets? That's the feed into the fuse box (and, hence, your wiring harness) from the alternator. See Datsunmike's post above about the fuseable link that is inline with this feed from the alt.

Re: Fiberglass front valance

Is Troy making them or buying them? If he's making them, the fitment is probably Troy-centric; if he's buying them in then finding out who is making them will probably expand the number of people that can give you advice.

Re: Electric issues - alot of things not working

Would also recommend tracking down a wiring diagram for your car. Lots of factory manuals have been scanned at datsun510.com. You'll also need a Volt/Ohm Meter (VOM) and some basic wiring tools (stripper, soldering iron, e-tape, spare fuses). I'd also recommend giving your fuse box a vinegar bath (r...

Hello and welcome to The Realm. If you could put your location in your profile, that'll help us know where you are once you move beyond this thread.

Getting to be a few 510ers in the south east. The annual East Coast 510 meet is coming up in May at Summit Point!

Hello and welcome to The Realm. Still a lot of 510/Datsun guys in Sac and the greater Sac area. Looks like your project has some stories to tell. Good to see another car being loved.

Re: Sr20det install with steering cross link

Depends in large part on how the engine's mounted. You can make mounts to position it just so. Don't the Australian's offer flipped center links with engineering certs?

I flipped mine, 220V MIG put it on like butter. Been a lot of flipped center links with no reports of failure that I know of.

Re: Wiper motor issues!

Wire broken between the fuse box and the motor? Bad fuse (may look good, but detached inside the cap, have had it happen so BTDT). Take your year/style of fuse box and look up the DQ backissue that has the wiring diagram.

Once you get it all sorted, add a better ground to the motor.

If you could take some pictures of the valence R&R, that would be very cool. We're lucky to have Dave's stuff available.

Re: b16 se-r seats in a 510

Haven't seen it yet, but anything can be made to fit as long as they fit between the trans tunnel and leaves enough space between the outer seat side and b-pillar so you can get a seat belt installed and reach for it. If you find a picture of the seat bottom you can post it here and see what people ...

Re: Latest front brake conversion kits

That DPR part number is for the stock 510 struts, your threaded collars won't affect that. Stock 510 wheels may be a problem, however, as there won't be much in the way of brake caliper clearance inside for those Wilwoods. If the threaded collars are the only thing stopping you from the ZX upgrade (...

Hello Patrick, and welcome to The Realm. Great time to post up as the East Coast 510 Meet is happening in May at Summit Point Raceway. Great opportunity to meet up with the East Coast contingent of 510 owners - a great group of resources.

Re: Any hope for this head?

Post pictures.

If the head's off, remove the cam, turn the head over, and fill the combustion chambers with fluid (water's safest), see if any valves leak.

Straight edge across the bottom to check for flat.

Corrosion in the cooling passages.
