Too funny...there I am yesterday, grabbing some groceries, and right at the front on the Hot Wheels rack, is ANOTHER MOMO 510...that's 4 now..maybe this one to a draw at Byron's place in May.

Re: Mikuni Rebuild Schedule?

I totally concur with taping up the tail pipe if car is to sit for any length of time. It is amazing how much moisture is in the air, no matter how dry you think your shop might be. I have watched Andy at Specialty over the years, as he has tried to keep the race motors rust free over a winter, in h...

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

How is the throttle shaft on that carb? If you grab the shaft where the throttle arm hooks up..and try to wiggle it up and down...does it move? If it moves at all other than rotation, that shaft is done. IF it does, that is a big issue for trying to tune something, as air gets in that way. Is that "...

When you thought you had seen everything

So, there was Matt and I doing our White Rock walkabout, where we are used to seeing a lot of different types of rolling iron doing the cruise along the beach front. Ferrari's, hot rods, the VW crowd, some cool motorcycles, all the type of cars we see Langley show, etc. We took a different route, as...

Re: Latest price of fuel

Our regular hit 1.70 / litre today. Our taxes in the fuel are about 0.53 to 0.54 cents a litre.

This will put our 94 octane at close to 2.00/litre.

I think my Avgas 100LL is at 1.75 right now. Going to fill my tank farm soon!

Glad my 510 gets about 23 to 24 MPG if we do not hammer too hard.

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Today I rolled the car out and over to Specialty where I checked out the water and methanol spray. Andy saved me a ton of time, as it turns out he has a "bore" scope, so, instead of having to take a ton of piping out to see if the 2 sprayers are working, I just removed the lower section that has the...

Re: 510 Day - Byron's place in Maple Ridge

Hey Alveen...I did see you go by..... No drives yet, I was at Andy's doing my inspection of my methanol system, then had to meet someone at the Chevron there, scary during in rush hour traffic.. I will be sure to give some heads up, weather is still a bit of a mess. Mountains getting more snow to ni...

Re: Latest price of fuel

Interesting, in our U.S. border town of Blaine, I paid 3.39 for a U.S. gallon, 87 octane. Re Robyn's comment: Over the last few summers, at least during the week, we have noticed a decrease in the CANADA DREAM rental campers and other large motor coaches. We had a spike some years ago with European ...

Latest price of fuel

As I live on the Border, I of course pop across to buy gas and support the great land of America in my bid to save some money in my retirement. Today, on a lark, I cruised through the White Rock Chevron, where I saw the Chevron 94 is 1.87/litre, that translates to $8.49 Imperial gallon! To fill up o...

Re: Any Gamer's here

As Matt and I got caught up in the on-line Call of Duty game ( I actually got pretty good), I now limit myself to no more than an hour at days end and am not inline anymore. I just like my first person shooters where I can take my time, explore and enjoy the incredible graphics. A good story line he...

Any Gamer's here

It has been a long time since I talked gaming with anyone on here, Heirfus used to one who was totally into gaming, as we all battled CALL OF DUTY online. Has anyone played the 3rd installment of METRO EXODUS yet? I have the first two and just loved the feel and ambiance of the game. This 3rd one is...

Re: 510 Day - Byron's place in Maple Ridge

After spending an hour or so I have a nice little stash of things to bring. I'm hoping to get my final spring maintenance done this Friday as the weather for the day looks good.

Checking the methanol system is a bit of a major job.

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Ok, yah, there should be a vacuum line to the bottom of the carb from the distributor, I was thinking of my setup. STOCK has not been my world for a long time.

Re: Rebuild, replace or swap moms 510 carb/engine?

Given that timing, ignition, valve adjust are all good, as is compression, the simplest and best upgrade would be a Weber 32/36 carb. An adapter lets it fit the intake manifold, the carb is virtually a plug and play, and it is a known swap. There are jet recommendations that would get you up and run...
