Re: 300mm Big Brake kit vs 276mm Micro Big Brake kit with 15inch Watanabe's?

1. No, you won't notice given the driving you describe, even with the KA. Stock ZX brakes were enough to stop a much heavier car. You could gain some braking performance just with pad selection (go-to used to be Porterfield pads). I had 11" rotors (stock Z31) and in similar driving the first br...

Re: 4 piston calipers

Saw your PM, refreshed my memory in the thread. The bracket I created and used with that combo (ZX strut, Z31 11" rotor, Wilwood caliper) is dead easy to make. Flat sheet of steel, four holes, angle-grinder for the shape. Dimensions are in the article. But to answer your question, I didn't know...

Re: Building a Morgan 3-Wheeler Replica

Interestingly, my old 3-Wheeler is also up for sale by the current owner. Looks like they did some (nice) cosmetic work, but nothing else. Which, to be fair, is all it really needed. Looks good in the gray. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/morgan/3-wheeler/2328905.html https://asse...

Re: Datsun 510 books, manuals, and magazines

Happy New Year, Rob. I think about all the projects I still want to do, in part to come back here and document them and get help when I need to. Then I get stymied by my lack of space for said projects to occur. Note for future home-buyers - don't buy a house with a slanted driveway. Working on cars...

Re: Aluminum Drums, Door Handles, Trim, More

Datsun 510 books, manuals, and magazines

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and Happy New Year, I'm clearing shelf space and have a stack of Datsun 510 stuff to pass along. Would prefer local pickup, but will ship at buyer's expense. PM me with offers+shipping. Will accept discount pricing for multiple items, just looking to make ...

Re: Whitebird

Hey Byron, the seller states he still has the OE front brake setup in his For Sale ad. When he talked about a front brake upgrade, I passed along your information, since you're the only other owner I know with a front-drum car.

Re: Mazda Wiper motor swap link

Seems like a good time to remind about The 510 Archives, and specifically the DQ backissue folder:
