  1. Today
  2. Scans of my photos of the UFO corral at Laguna Seca for the IMSA race in 1985. Easily the most 510s I had ever seen in one place until the Shasta gatherings a decade later.

    Bluebird Sports

    Beats me. Spreadbury would probably know for sure. Pretty sure it was a distinct trim level for at least one model year since they had those grille and trunk badges.

    Bluebird Sports

    I've been watching bluebird sales in Japan for years and have yet to see a "SPORTS" adorned model offered up. (that I remember) Was it an actual stand-alone model or a collection of dealer installed trim? Odd clash between the DeLuxe badging and the Sports badging.
  5. Manifold is done. No , i haven't got around to install. Funny how that shit goes.......
  6. You're more than welcome.....and thank you. :) Looking forward to seeing more pics of it and the brakes. Hopefully, I don't miss it. I follow very little on ratsun these days.

    Bluebird Sports

    Some time ago I came across this Nissan promotional photo set for the Bluebird Sports model. This is a set of four black and white 5x7" prints that came in a Nissan envelope. Below are scans of the envelope and photos. It looks like the Sports is based on the 4-dr Deluxe but with Sports grille and trunk badges, and perhaps Sports model specific grille and tail lamp garnish. I'm not enough of a JDM Bluebird nut to know what else is specific to this model, but I do know that I'd really love to have this car in my personal Dream Garage. The Nissan News Flash envelope: Exterior photos: Interior shot. I'm digging that carpet style. Also, it looks like the plastic dash closeout under the temp/fuel gauge has come loose. Oops...

    Nissan distributor case will have 22100-????? number stamped into it. Have a look and get back. I can let you know what it's from. Drive spindle doesn't really matter as long as you can set the timing. Rather than cutting the distributor plate he could have moved the spindle one tooth and this would move the rotor position back where he could have made a proper adjustment. Uncut L series heads for the 4 cylinder are 4.248" so unless the valve cover surface was faced also that's 0.28" or 7.112mm!!!!!!!!!! This removes over 40cc from a 45.2cc combustion chamber so that can't be right. I measured a spare head in the same place and it's 4.230"but must have been shaved because there are cam tower shims on it. Never noticed this before. I measured a shim and 0.015" and that's pretty close to 2.248". We didn't get U60 heads here so maybe different in thickness??
  9. Transmission mount complete aside from welding my ‘custom’ ¾” plate mounts to the frame to bolt the flipped stock crossmember to. Using an Energy Suspension urethane universal mount that fit the trans with only minor modifications.
  10. The 510 pan is specific to the 510. I did a parts number cross reference search to see if Nissan used that pan on anything else like the '73 610... and nope. Not saying another pan won't fit but it isn't exactly the same. I have a 710 pan on a Z24 engine so it will fit the 710.
  11. I know i could use these maybe if i win i could trade for mounts for a 521
  12. If I win these 620 KA mounts they will go to Shawn Drawdy's wife Becka's 620 that is slowly getting started on. I may throw in a rebuildable KA & 5 speed to help the build get along.
  13. Buy 2 of the woodruff keys and pulleys so if it fails again you will have them when you rebuild your engine and replace the crank.
  14. The piece pictured above under the dash is a metal piece. They look nice but are a time looser if you need under the dash on the drivers side. I pull mine off and never put them back on. Just me.
  15. Pay PhotoBucket money. Or switch to another picture hosting site. I left Photobucket years ago when they held my pictures ransom. I use PostImage now. The best way is to Have your own website to host your pictures on.
  16. I've had the same heat related experience wrinkle black. For me if i didnt follow the temp instructions and wait times, i had garbage. If i was really particular about following instructions i got great results. Regarding painting a bike frame, it will look good but it's a bitch to clean properly. The wrinkles hold dirt something fierce. Just something to consider.
  17. As long as you can remove it at a later date. Torque to 90-116 ft lbs. It ain't coming off.
  18. I remember that partial build. Not a bad interview. Where's the uproar over available cars or the cost of them? Mine went up another $2000 after watching.
  19. I have a few available. Specific engine necessary.

    My 1971 521

    Typical Ratsun fashion so he must have been a member here. I could always use my el dizzy + plate and mount with this motor.
  21. For the temp sender to spike there must be circulation of hot water past it.
