  1. If you got the cash these bits from Troy Ermish might just be the ticket. His latest offering comes with the companion flanges and diff stub axels to eliminate the adapters. https://www.ermish-racing.com/rear-suspension
  2. Noll, Your tenacity on this project is awesome! The 160 diff??? 510s tear those things up all the time. How long do think it will last before it becomes a steel blender?

  4. It don't help. Had to go out into the garage to see what it should look like. You are missing a pretty good chunk! Lay the water pump gasket on there. Your throwing money at this thing. I'd try and find a good frnt cover. But it worked before sooo?
  5. Stof, that was for race motors? Should have been a little clearer. The big gig in the 70s was to cross drill. My only experience is with the U20 then. Talking with Tilton in the day that was the way to go and of course enlarging the oil feed. We even enlarged the main oil gallery among other things. That crank was hard sht, had to use cobalt drills. Could spin that bitch to 8500 consistently 9K if needed. Telltale tachs don't lie, especially when the driver cant get to the reset button!
  6. Did you still cross drill # 2 & 4 crank journals? Any experience with after market cranks like Moldex or Callies? Thnx Stof!
  7. shoot, I thought this was a race car topic
  8. don't now about the rest of the world, in the states that's a 73-74 rear bumper, same thing with the front fenders. depending on where the car is actually from it could be a 180B aka 610 in the usa. look for the model / vin # stamped into the cowl sheet metal to the right of the windshield wiper motor, 2dr hardtop body / trim parts are as rare as hens teeth. The door cards have been replaced. By the way. I party with serbs in the new era restaurant, family owned since the late 30s, house of paprikash. as they say there are serbians and those that wish they where Serbian. hot women, party anima
  9. Just by chance did you inspect the rubber donut that's in-between the steering shaft and the steering box for rot? There is a failsafe pin to keep the car steering in case of failure but you will have huge slop whether the steering wheel is straight or at full lock. If you maxed out the wear adjustment with the wheels straight, it should be pretty hard to turn to full lock. The wear is typically in the straight ahead area of the worm and sector.

    L20 swap for 510

    If you want a less expensive option than mikunis 46mm SUs will add to the spirited drive. Be prepared for machining, welding and fabricating though.
  11. Good luck finding a 610 or 710 box. Datzenmike probably has a couple 710 boxs squirrelled away 😂 try maybe car-part.com I think it is
  12. Looks like either of these places have the idler gear and the striking rod. Id start with jp-carparts. I believe you do an inquiry first, they make sure they have parts available then you pay. (I've never used jp) Amayama will say they have the parts, want money up front, then sometimes they cant get the parts and leave you with a credit. (personal experience) Shipping from Japan is not cheap, but hey brand new parts! The last place sells used parts and is in Oregon, never dealt with them. https://jp-carparts.com/ https://www.amayama.com/en http:
  13. JDH6, You should be able to use late 510 calipers. Its much beefier then the original 510 caliper. Did this to my 610 with 13" wheels. You will need the larger disk also. Scroll about 2/3rds down the first page, https://ratsun.net/topic/66155-olde-skool-610/
  14. If your looking at buying a fair amount of tuning parts for your Weber's, you might want to consider sourcing out of the UK. https://www.burtonpower.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=ram+pipes https://www.burtonpower.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=weber+jets https://www.burtonpower.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=weber+emulsion+tubes
  15. Caution with the large nut, being a 71C, I believe it is left hand thread.
  16. So how would one fly this thing with no tail? Or is it now a boat?
  17. Hopefully somebody here can clue me in on this. Obviously some type of water aircraft, wings aren't attached.

    Dual Weber L20B

    If you still want to run side drafts, I believe Pierce still sells the short intake https://www.piercemanifolds.com/product_p/mt-0037-c.htm I thought Redline produced one also? Their manifold raised the carbs up to get away from the booster, the pics in the listing below show you how close you'll be to the booster https://www.ebay.com/i/233293001120?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=233293001120&targetid=884638959240&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9015401&poi=&campaignid=9426322711&m
  19. If your going to put Azenis or StarSpecs on the 15s for daily driving, I wouldn't even bother with the 13s, unless you do put track tires on em. No need to put crappy tires on your car just to run 13" wheels. Stick with the those15s. Since your in the east, track tires do not like to be in cold weather (freezing). I run kumho ecsta 205/50-15 treaded track tires on the street. I got a killer deal from a closeout gig on the tire rack. As far as wearing them out. Im lucky to drive 100 miles a year. Those type of tires would probably be good for about 3K miles on the street. I did have to buy the
  20. Yeah, good 13" rubber is slim pickens. Its either Toyo or Michelin for treaded tires, even though they are actually track tires. Michelin is kinda pricy. Dunlop and BFG still have some offerings but they're wsw tires. https://www.cokertire.com/michelin-tb15.html
  21. Your kinda right. The flap is moved by the temperature of the 'spring' on the manifold. As the spring heats up, it pivots the deflector plate so the exhaust gases flow more freely. Its an aid to warm the engine up faster.
  22. Use a weber 32/36, the carb off the j13 will be to small and will need re-jetted. Where did you end up finding a 5th gear steel syncro ring? $$$? Typically you should replace the ring, blocks and bands as a unit as all of those parts are the 'synchronizer'. Nice Roadster
  23. Never used this place, but it appears he has a lot of stuff! https://mmerlinn.com/catalog/dox_angel/dt_w7b/dtw7b_f.htm
