Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Damn, you got pretty into it. The gas powered ones look like allot of fun. That glider looks insane haha did it climb the currents pretty well? This is only the second I’ve built. The first was when I was 15 and I’d do nothing but wreck it and fix it and try again haha I also have another in progres...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

This is what I built today, not bad for a day. Hopefully going to get a calm day soon so I can try it out. I have an airplane obsessed family, so we all have these haha

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

It’s kinda rebuildable, but not in the easy way. I already pulled it apart and rebuilt the simple way. Not it needs some creative addition of a recess cut for a boring around the rod. I have a slightly more ratty way of dealing with it till I get something that’s going to work. Hose straight into th...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Turns out the leak I have is from the heater valve I re did. The shaft is worn too much so it’s spraying out from there. Only one I can find for sale anywhere online is $100... expensive for what it is. I’m going to hit up a couple different guys I know, but I don’t expect to find a valve anywhere. ...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

The heat is way better, but turns out I’m not done... there’s a leak and I think it’s the heater core.

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Haha I actually didn’t notice the number change after they painted the lot a couple months ago. People keep making jokes about 69 haha till now I was confused. Next up will be some drilling and grinding to fit the Japanese from bumper. The u.s. housings are in the way. But today I had a major coolan...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Thanks guys, I’m really happy I was able to get these for a great price. I have a few more non u.s. market upgrades in the future too. The stock front bumper does have the shock things, but I have a Japanese front ready to go on the front. It hits the u.s. mount location that’s left after you take t...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

So I may have bought some things.... more things than I care to post. So I’ll post as it all goes on my car haha First up is a Japanese market rear bumper! There was bad rust pitting from the back side, so I cleaned it up and put a nice coat of por15 to seal it. Seems like it’s starting to come thro...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Tonight I decided to wrap up a couple wires that could be better, well more change than fix. First I made an adapter from my harness to the maxima alt. Then I soldered longer wires onto my headlight switch so I could finally mount it in the dash. Then I preceded to lock my keys in the car... which a...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Re: The "Retired" 510

I’m interested to see those camber plates when they’re done. Nice choice on the b210 booster too, it looks smaller under your hood than on my b210.

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Hmm, maybe the B is lighter in the rear? I’ll be looking for a shock replacement after it’s lowered... hopefully I can find some adjustable ones. Yea the front is going to be absolutely perfect, especially those adjustable inserts. With all the work going into this I’m not sure I know how much of a ...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Haha I think this is pre Izzo. It’s just one in a series of hack jobs to the wires. But thanks to eagle I now have a 74 factory service manual with a nice diagram. Time to photo copy and trace wires with markers lol

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

It was already converted to it with the plug months ago. This is some other weird issue. The harness is all hacked together. I think I may have an extra wire run from the harness to the battery with a failed diode in line. I’m going to cut the shrink tube and see what I find. I think they wired thei...
