Re: The "Retired" 510

Got these too. Will probably wait to install after the rocker panels are fixed up. Currently trying to source the longest ones available. https://s8.postimg.org/h3ylnvy9x/20171217_153017.jpg https://s8.postimg.org/mfdi8l4x1/20171217_153035.jpg https://s8.postimg.org/ivrkis9x1/20171217_153045.jpg Jus...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I had the pleasure of completely dismantling a BMC, just because I never have. I'm pretty sure everyone has heard of the residual valves that keep a small amount of pressure on the brakes. The one for the rear is supposed to be stiffer to account for the rear drums. Anyway, mine has two identical sp...

Re: The "Retired" 510

But so do harbor freight hand tools. Lol Some might last, some might not. After diagnosing it as truly bad, I decided to go with an OEM remanufactured unit from Cardone. You know what would be good? A valve on the coolant bleeder hole, rather than the OEM bolt. Ordered one of those also. Will have t...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Pretty sure I know the answer, but is it worth it to mess around with anything other than OEM?

Re: The "Retired" 510

I considered that stuff, but knowing how clumsy I can be I'm afraid I would end up bending them in the engine bay. How fun, my MAF might have got knocked around in the garage too much while it was off the car. Only getting intermittent continuity between pin 2 and 3. Car wants to die with it plugged...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Didn't go so smooth today. One of the lines I had to massage to connect to the new BMC had a break in it. I used Waynos method to get the stuck fitting off and it worked perfectly. https://s8.postimg.org/teqlhi9vp/20171209_160115.jpg P.S. Evercraft flaring tool=absolute garbage. Returned it and got ...

Inline check valve, check. https://s8.postimg.org/fqsifuo45/20171208_152821.jpg Vacuum port for manifold, check. https://s8.postimg.org/qdmblc1f9/20171208_152830.jpg I was surprised to find both of those pieces in the mailbox today, they are both supposed to be here tomorrow. Sweet. I was planning t...

Re: The "Retired" 510

The hood looks similar in color to the trunk lid too. It'll be a mashup for sure. Waiting to install the hood until I get the new latch system. I've got the pull cable though.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Wire wheeled a bit of rot on the inner trunk frame, not too bad. Also sanded a few spots of surface rust. Any bare metal got some clear coat and I bolted it on. Still have to enlarge one lock cylinder slot and add another completely, then my Solex cylinder can be fitted. https://s8.postimg.org/z900y...

Re: The "Retired" 510

As ugly as it may be, it still got new weather stripping and its installed now. No more door flying open unexpectedly :)

The lower hinge is totally sloppy, but that can be fixed later.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Just finished gutting my old door. Definitely still some good parts here.

Not sure if I ever showed exactly why I needed a new door. Lower hinge mound was rusted out and not even fully connected to the door.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Wayno, that little trick seems so obvious but I dont know if I would have ever done it on my own. I will next time for sure.

Laecaon, that would be rad. A couple days ago I realized cutting the slots would have to be more precise than I'm capable of here at home.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Even with a brake line wrench I managed to strip one of the brake line nuts on the prop block. So instead of new lines I just bent my old ones carefully. I didn't end up with any kinks so I'm happy. https://s8.postimg.org/k9xuyrbmt/20171205_123156.jpg Almost ready to go now. Just need vacuum and of ...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Good clearance all around. Now I just need to bend up some new lines and give it a good bench bleed..

Re: The "Retired" 510

When they say, "bolts right in". What they mean to say is, 'bolts in after you remove the studs that fix the MC mounting plate to the firewall, and bend new lines to MC. https://s8.postimg.org/676vm9f8l/20171205_105538.jpg Bolt pattern is right at least. https://s8.postimg.org/iltnmwret/20...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Funny thing is, I wasn't planning on running a booster at all. I just happened upon it and I dont see any reason not to. My main priority was a proper functioning door. This one came with good glass and with some grease it opens and closes good. The latch mechanism works good too, lock seems iffy, b...

Re: The "Retired" 510

32.5mm bore on the end of the 7/8 MC, 30mm bore on the spacer and the 3/4 MC. I opened up the hole on the spacer and it fit right in.

Now just to adjust the rod length on the brake pedal side.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Turns out the 7/8" BMC doesnt fit because of the spacer plate. The hole either needs to be opened up on the spacer plate, or I need a spacer plate from a car with a 7/8 BMC. https://s8.postimg.org/gd16t1ww5/20171204_155240.jpg https://s8.postimg.org/vyiicztet/20171204_155250.jpg

Re: The "Retired" 510

Holy part haul. I keep getting lucky. I went out for a driver side front door, and ended up with a door, a trunk lid, ANOTHER left side eyebrow trim, a b210 booster, factory 510 driver side mirror, and another taillight housing/lens. https://s8.postimg.org/gylkbpknp/20171204_151148.jpg https://s8.po...
