Re: The "Retired" 510

I've slowly been building up the components to have a functional parking brake again. I used this small turnbuckle to connect the two rear cables. It was small enough I was able to re tap the threads to m6 and that plus a lock but got the one side connected. For the other side I just cut a slit into...

Re: The "Retired" 510

All hardware removed, almost through the backing plate cleaning. https://s14.postimg.org/sam9hin9t/20180116_203343.jpg https://s14.postimg.org/yobckthw1/20180117_121403.jpg https://s14.postimg.org/w89j6emsh/20180117_121219.jpg https://s10.postimg.org/c7syog761/20180118_094644.jpg https://s10.postimg...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Couldn't ask much more from it. Does the job right.

Looking cozy in there. Still need another Z drum to finish this brake job up.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Made up this little tool to measure the camber angle. Turns out I've still got about -4 degrees in the rear. Front is perfect at about -.5, I eyeballed that months ago, surprised my eyes work that good. https://s13.postimg.org/vu7yr906v/20180116_105807.jpg https://s13.postimg.org/jfl6qwdtj/20180116_...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

+1 on the atv for getting around. We have a couple 660 Yamahas with independent front and rear suspension. Their a joy to get around on. We stick 40 gallon spray tanks on the back and go quite a bit. We're on 80 acres in the mountains, not the most friendly place to walk anywhere.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Can't emphasize that enough. I dove belly first in a oil stain earlier because it's still better than a rough driveway on an incline. I've checked every way possible in the garage and it's nice and level. I decided I might as well address the excessive negative camber in the rear with the slotted x-...

But if you build a stand, you'll have to test it out by building a new motor ;)

Re: The "Retired" 510

Surgery on the 10th and moving at any point between now and the end of the month has made me pack up my tools and parts, rather than use them. I don't wanna have to try and pack stuff up after surgery... Cool little 2 bedroom townhouse with a one car garage coming my way soon, hopefully. Having all ...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I got them from ZcarDepot, through eBay. It came out to like 22$ or so. I had the hood open yesterday and didn't even install them. Lol

Re: The "Retired" 510

Hmm, what about welded to the MAF housing? The diameter is smaller than the 90 (almost 1/4"), but it's a great slip fit over the maf outlet (less than 1mm difference here). I also want this to look decent.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Working now! Turns out my new intake tube was a bit short. 2.5 extra inches would be perfect. https://s13.postimg.org/rsyjsrlx3/20180101_125529.jpg Sooo, I want to add the end of my old intake to the outlet of the MAF.

Re: The "Retired" 510

Got a few things to do do here in the next ten days. M6x1.0 male to 1/8" npt female adapter with a valve screwed into the npt side. Will be used to replace the oem M6 bleeder bolt. https://s13.postimg.org/ucxuxp8nb/20171230_173234.jpg https://s13.postimg.org/56wwqvf2v/20171230_173431.jpg New 90...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Eh, they're okay. The secondary release latch was sort of sticky. Some grease and a slight bend to the base of the lever made it nice and smooth though. https://s13.postimg.org/3zpv0ye2v/20171227_120310.jpg https://s13.postimg.org/m18zzaijr/20171227_120318.jpg https://s13.postimg.org/lprjm0et3/20171...

Re: The "Retired" 510

They look even better installed ;) I'll have pictures up soon. I got home from Christmas weekend to find my package with a new hood striker\latch combo. I thought it was funny that some of the parts from Thailand have their own imitation Nissan logos and parts boxes. https://s10.postimg.org/qi4n29oo...

Got these too. Will probably wait to install after the rocker panels are fixed up.

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?
