Re: Soon to be new 510 owner

Thanks a bunch for the tips! I asked the buyer to send some photos of the undercarriage and there is some rust but it doesn't appear to be a huge amount. Here are those photos: https://flic.kr/s/aHskuDUsP3 Also, here is a link to the listing. Any additional feedback or comments are appreciated! Sup...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

The site i use to host my pictures since photobucket went crazy (vgy.me) dropped their servers over the past few days and while being fixed caused google chrome to block the site. After a few fixes i can see my pictures again, just want to check if everyone else can haha (google chrome users may sti...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Did some rough engine bay work tonight with the drill and a sanding disk. Going to give the entire bay a pass with it before moving to some finer stuff by hand. Then can go about filling unwanted holes and smoothing everything out Don't forget about your upper and lower unibody channels. Being out ...

Re: Soon to be new 510 owner

Hey everyone! I won the bid for a nice project 510 on BaT today and am going to be flying to LA next week to finalize the deal. Any recommendations for checking out the car? Also, I will have a nice set of SSR MK3s for sale locally in LA if anyone is interested and looking for a set! Some nasty rus...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Picked up the engine from the shop! Went with a small .5mm overbore since the engine only had 60,000km. Cleaned up fairly well, they didn't mention how much they took off when the decked the engine/front cover but it looks like a fair amount, piston to valve clearance is going to be interesting with...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Finally got the engine dropped off at the shop, should be all finished up in the new year. Getting bored, hot tanked, and decked. Once that's done can go about measuring for bearings and start throwing it back together. Still on the fence about doing some headwork on the VE head, that'll get expensi...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Torque plate seems like seems like a gimmick to me. Such a simple parts for a ton of money. Wish I would have thought of it! Yeah for a chunk of aluminum with some holes machined into it the prices are pretty crazy. The SR guys swear by them though, say there's some pretty substantial cylinder dist...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Well progress has been slow lately because of work / other projects and because i kept telling myself there must be a better way to bore my block besides buying a $700 torque plate i'd use once. Eventually made a post on a 240sx forum discussing the necessity of using one for my application and had ...

Re: Q35DE

Anyone using a Q35DE in their 510 If you're referring to the VQ35de out of the 350z, q35, maxima etc (not being an ass just not sure if thats what you mean) there are some people who have done it but the modifications are very extensive and it's my personal belief that it's not worth it unless you ...

Re: 1971 2 Door, L16 --> 2.1 Long Rod --> SR20VE

Started cleaning up the engine bay in prep for the SR, stripping everything down and eventually painting it. Guess there will be one good looking part of the car haha https://vgy.me/b9IzA7.jpeg Had to coat everything in oven cleaner to try and get the grime off, 46 years of oil and dirt sure don't w...
