  1. Past hour
  2. I saw that Andover one posted. A few friends are interested in that one as well, so I might go. Switch it up a little bit. I’ve heard the Seacoast one can get really big, so I’d love to go sometime. The one I usually go to is up in Derry, NH now. They moved it from Salem after the coffee shop closed.

    Thread locker, whatever it is. Blue/Red, Don't know. Would be a poor product if oil and gas dissolved it and main caps flew off. I've even scored the threads so a nut won't back off. (not on anything important)
  4. Good read on vaccines & current complications...................... https://noorchashm.medium.com/j-js-covid-19-vaccine-blood-clotting-complications-did-the-adversely-affected-women-have-cdde4bdbb090

    Mike wont the gas desolve that Blue permantex???
  6. Inspect the way it flies into a dumpster! I just bought a new plastic and aluminum radiator for L20b, $189. Hot set up...
  7. alright, will do i was just going to do center out tightening them,. never messed with anything that uses these yoke washer before though.
  8. Today
  9. This radiator may have been designed for a 1.6L/1.8L Volkswagen, but the VR6 version is basically identical, only 4" wider. Both of those will cool any L/Z/KA just fine. If it works in Texas, it'll damn sure work in Canada. 😁 The Honda ones are a bit too small, I think? A Honda engine is a lot more thermally efficient than an L/Z. The aftermarket all aluminum Honda radiators work great on an A14/A15, and are thicker core than a stock Honda radiator. One of those may be worth a try? Also, another thing I didn't see mentioned is if you use a Scirocco (or early Rabbit) ra
  10. FWIW, you can simply and add lightness by switching to an L20b distributor? Then just use 4 plugs.
  11. Update. All the stock front suspension and lines are out: I'm planning to start cutting the mounts off of the frame tomorrow and start prepping the Miata subframe to be notched

    Put some Blue on the threads.
  13. I have the bolts/studs for the L series manifolds as 9-12 ft lbs. These are aluminum heads and will strip easily. Use the lowest number you can. Don't know if there is a sequence for the A series, the L series does not. I don't think it would matter.
  14. I remember a Turbonique VW called the inch pincher. Did 180 in the 1/4.
  15. Excellent, Awesome and Outstanding, what I wanted to know is covered in the manuals, so graciously supplied. I was confused on the sequence of steps in a Z24 dual plug disassembly. Thank you
  16. Filter position doesn't matter. Pump will suck out all the air just like coke up a straw.
  17. been doing alittle digging and was just looking for a solid answer, im putting the intake and exhaust back on and need the torque spec and sequence. from what ive read it should be about 10-14 ft/lbs is that right?
  18. Had the 210 on a lift, so I took some pictures. Does anyone have a set of good oem tail lights for a 210 sedan or know where to get some? The ebay specials are terrible.
  19. Reviving an old thread to get updated info. I'm looking for a good exhaust shop near bremerton for my 210. I got quoted $360 for a catback and me providing the muffler. Seems high, but maybe not? Also, for an 81 210 with A15, the thrush turbo (17703) and 1.5in pipe won't be obnoxiously loud will it? I had the same muffler in my 620 and liked the sound since it wasn't too loud. Thanks in advance for the help!

    Mine back out all the time. I carry a screw driver with me all the time in glove box. This is usually it above idle it will start cutting out. I dont know why it does this. My 44s never did this. I dont want to overtighten it as the pop metal on the carbs are a casting and not overly strong. Maybe Stoffregen Motorsports on here will know how to lock it down w/o pluggiing up the jet
  21. Indeed. 👍 If I can fashion a dome light mount for the center support, I may make a "headliner" that just goes from edge to edge, and just leave the edges exposed. I think I could make it tuck up into the roof to support the edges, but I'd need a dome light to keep the center from drooping. Same. 😁 If it's the color I am thinking of (not quite silver, not quite charcoal) I do dig that. I have used that before on some stuff and it looked really good. It was used on the bumper/grill/mirrors on this car...
  22. I have not had any unexplained illnesses in the past year and even longer. Don't remember the last time is was sick. I'm not working, rarely go into town (never without a mask), no plane flights, no bus, never socialize (bars, parties, restaurants) no visitors. I would say low risk as opposed to living in a plague infested seniors home or on a petri dish cruise ship. I checked and 6.8 million doses have been administered so less than one in a million deaths. That's insignificant and may be from birth control pills, smoking and obesity. Who knows. 1 in 1,000,000 isn't really news
  23. You'll have to try it with the vacuum advance connected. You'll see that you get better mileage with than without. Yes, I see there are only 2 ports on the CA '83. The '84 has 3 and the EGR has it's own port.
  24. You might want to get tested for anti bodies first, this Doctor has been warning about this for all three vaccines not just the J&J version. https://noorchashm.medium.com/j-js-covid-19-vaccine-blood-clotting-complications-did-the-adversely-affected-women-have-cdde4bdbb090
  25. We even got some snow out near the coast in Topsfield... Didnt really stick or anything, but it was coming down. Bad enough that the town decided to salt the roads... Ugggg Hopefully they dont come around again and the rest of the storm will wash it away. I did see that Seacoast Cars&Coffee is having their first event this weekend. Probably wont make it though. Gonna try and catch the first one in Andover on May 2nd.

    Just my experience with a 620. (my 521 snapped the mount bolts off in the block, I transferred the alternator to the driver's side) Drove around fine for a few weeks but the belt slipped and when tightened it banged on the idler arm and the fins nicked the radiator hose. It's just not a good fit with larger diameter alternators and why (or one of the reasons why) the 720 has the idler on the outside of the frame.
