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

It’s already so much better, it’s not even the same car. The 280zx front is going to be amazing too I agree

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...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Haha it does do the job, but I’m ready to try a new tool for the job.

Speaking of new tools... I got a new welder! It’s the Hobart 130 and it seems perfect for what I need.

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

You can get them for about $39 right now from a few sources. Is built similar to expensive ones and should do a nice job. Way better than using a pipe an obsessive levels of body work.

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Well the 5 speed started making more noise and started feeling a bit off so it had to get pulled out. I’m working on a welding project with eagle Adam so he offered to swap while I keep the welding progressing. He put better bolts in place of a few I had for the bell housing and put a new throw out ...

Re: The rusty panda

It was a 79 with a 74 cab, but maintained the 79 title. The 79 had a rusty cab and the 74 had a wrecked bed. It originally had an L20b that I put a w58 peanut head and 1800 sus on. Then it got 5 speed swapped and lowered with torsion bars up front and 720 4x4 springs in the rear. Then it got jacobs ...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

So I’m starting to think a heater would be nice haha. So I took the heater control valve out and rebuilt it. It’s a shame I have to paint it... it looks so nice. Now I just have to take the heater core out and give it a clean... and swap out my heater controls. I got a new set from the junkyard pick...

Re: Converted is back 74 b210

Well these came in today! I’m pretty excited. I went with 8” Viking 200lb springs, that have mass amounts of travel and are really lightweight with a warranty to stay within 2% or the spring rate. The sleeves are just from an eBay set, they’re a little snug tho and won’t go completely on. I have a c...
