Re: 1972 1600SSS from New Zealand

However my jig mimickes the are with bushes installed as there is some lea way one way or the other. If you are o...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Yesterday I walked into a Baskin & Robbins in Oak Harbour, Wa, with my 510 shirt on. The gentleman behind the counter asks: "Do you have a 510?" "Yes!" I reply. He proceeds to tell me he grew up in a 1971 Wagon, best car he remembers, that his parents ever had. We need more ...

Re: Front calipers don't release

The problem is simple, the rod leading from the pedal to the brake master is too long. Shorten the adjustment back so there is a little free play. What's happening is that the BMC pistons are not full uncovering the compensation port, and your brakes can only pump up and not release. Do this and you...

Re: The Nickel (was belted goon from the weeds)

Yep, I used a generic turn signal box in the Mazda we had as well. It takes the separted turn and brake signal and combines them on the trailer to one light (just use both is you have a two bulb tail light. Cost was around $90.

Re: NVH Issues

I did spot the engine mounts in the Bronze and dropped the engine oil pan within 3/16" of the cross member when using the syocknNissan type motor mounts. So some geometry can be gained here. Due to the distance between the motor mount and the tranny mount, that likely made only a small change t...

Re: Column shift auto to manual?

Hi Bruce, welcome to the site. In fact it is as easy as you think, the automatic shift linkage can be simply unbolted from the existing column. There is no need to change the column itself. As noted, you will need to find the ignition cover for a manual transmission car, and there's also a small bla...

Re: All Japanese Classic '17 - Vancouver BC Aug 27

The AJC show is just around the corner - less than 2 weeks away. Attendance looks to be even better than last years show with a whole lot of new cars that we've never seen already signed up. Oddly, many of those that we know well have not signed up for preregistration. But I fully expect to see them...
