So over thanksgiving I worked on the 510 a bit more (we're playing with the name Camatsun... and Dataro... awful? or genius?). We've gotten to the point where the engine will run, but it will not idle. We're operating under the assumption that this is one of the many faults in that superb 90s GM engineering and the idle control on it isn't functioning. So that will be tested for during my next break and hopefully we'll have a solid idle after that.

In other news we got the front brake calipers mounted, and have Tokico 280ZX coilovers that are on it already. We've given the driveshafts to the shop for them do work their magic to get us set up in that department. Hopefully we'll have this thing actually moving before too long!

Here's it "running" for now. We got it to run without ether later... we learned you just need to floor it for it to start.

Next on the list:
Idle Control
Brake lines and master cylinder
Install driveshaft
Install shifter and clutch lines/pedal

So continuing this project. Long long break. The 510 is at the shop now getting headers made for it. We got the emergency brake working, connected the drive shaft and all that, hooked up the clutch lines, and hooked up all the brakes. A couple of the brakes work, at least one does not. The clutch master isn't long enough throw apparently to actually move the clutch.

Once we have headers made work will be done on the cooling system, clutch, and the brakes will be finished.

Worlds longest 510 Project? lol

As it currently sits:
