  1. Hi guys. Not much happened for at least for a month new because been busy in other parts of life. I see that many of you have been interested about the rotisserie i made. I will take some photos of it and how it mounts next time i go to garage. (Hopefully this weekend) -Jarno
  2. Hi guys! Test fitted Tiltons today, not going to fit into 510. I have to get a different model from them. When assembled the pedalbox as low as possible pedals were 28cm from the floor. On stock pedals height is 19cm so need to get ones with cylinders facing inside the car. Florida trip was nice, these came with me back to Finland. Got all the parts to assemble the block except the pistons, i should be able to buy those by end of the month. Just need to get my trigger wheel drilled to fit the stock crank pulley. Also got the Technotoy GTX2 control arm set and toe links. Got the nylon discs to engine mounts and test fitted the block back to the car. Then got the 5speed behind it. Today I got R180 diff with 4.875 gear ratio. Assembled it on it's place so now I just need the drive shaft so I can make the transmission mount. Not much is going to happen this month since I'm just waiting for the parts to arrive and working like a donkey to get some extra money for some new parts.
  3. A weekly post?! What?! Last night was succesful at the garage. Made new engine mounts, these are 28mm in height (stock 38mm) so i can add 10mm of nylon on top of them so they will still be stiff but still soften some ripple. Here's one photo of the L19 added some primer on it so it wont get rusty while waiting for the assembly. Next time i will drop it on the car with the transmission so i can start to make the transmission mount. So the car is now back on the jack stands and it will be there till i get to the end of my to do list. -Fit the transmission -Fit the pedalbox -Make new seat holders -Weld in seat belt holders After those things i'm ready to paint the bottom, then it's back to suspension building! Here's the photo of new tilton pedalbox that i got.
  4. Long time no see, but here's update whats been going on.. Stich welds + sanding the bottom is now ready and I'm going to drop the car from the rotisserie next week so I can make engine and transmission mounts + mount tilton pedal box. I bought 5 speed gearbox from my friend last week, also got a set of new H-beam connecting rods for the engine. I'm travelling to US (Miami FL) to relax for two weeks on new year and there should be some nice stuff waiting for me at the hotel (Technotoy GTX2 control arms and TC rods, technotoy outer tie rods, set a ARP bolts for the engine and ATI damper so we can start to spin it!) The block came back from the machining and it's now L19 ! So the cylinders got driller 3mm bigger and I'm going to get forged CP pistons to fill the cylinders. I will share more stuff about the engine when i get all the parts and we can start to build it. The target is to get over 200hp from the crank and set the rev limiter to 9k rpm. I try to post more often, specially now when i got some more interesting stuff to do thant sand the undercoat!
  5. Yes I build it myself, just got the measurements out of my head hah. Its 135cm wide, 100cm high, bolts where bumpers. Thanks for the nice words, hopefully I get some stuff ready next week so can share more!
  6. Quick update about past two weeks. Got the body rotisserie ready and lifted the car on it. 99% of the undercoat is gone now, just some small bits in those tight corners. Found one more rust spot that needs to be fixed, actually it was already fixed but that was like the worst rust repair in man history so had to do it again. Also started to reinforcement weld the bottom of the car, hopefully will get all the reinforcement welds ready next week so i can start to work with the rust spot. Plans are still the same, just the money is missing to get any new parts hah!
  7. Hi. It took a little bit longer than next week since the last post but here is little something. I got the rear firewall ready, it turned out pretty good in my own opinion. If you're wondering what the the thing in the middle of it is it's a straight part in the slanted firewall so it's easier to make the through outs for the gas lines. Then after checking things what I need to do before i can paint the bottom i decided to make a body rotisserie (I hope that i've done this earlier) List what I got to do: -Clean & reinforcement weld the bottom -Fit the transmission (5 speed big trans from Z) -Fit the wheels & tires -Tilton Pedalbox assembly -New seat holders -6 point seat belt holders Then some other updates. The engine is at the builder right now, it's going to be drilled next month. I sold the Keihin throttle bodies because they were too hard to fit with the FIA intake. I'm planning to buy Jenvey Heritage throttle bodies so the engine bay would have a nice classic look. Let's see what happens. I sold the BCracing coilovers, got the ground control coilovers for the rear and now looking for different options for the front if there's someone racing 510 and got good tips for the front coils please let me know. Then decided to get rid of old control arms and get new one's from technotoy tuning, also the outer tie rods will be replaced with technotoy products. Here's one extra picture how the garage & 510 looks at the moment.
  8. Hello. Too much time hangin out with local datsun enthuasiasts and my project has gone to next level. Where to start? Okay, smallest things first so ended up to make the rear seat back rest again. This time from aluminium. First i cutted the metal plates i made away. Then made new backrest and parcle shelf from 1mm aluminium. Next thing is to grind some of the old weldings away and add some primer before i attach the aluminium plates with pop rivets & glue. Also got the S13 handbrake lever & wires assembled while ago. Next up, suspension. I'm selling my BCracing coilovers (can ship anywhere if interested) and bought these ground control coilovers for the rear. And I'm looking for 280zx struts for the front, there will be custom made Bilstein coilover race shocks. And the dessert.. I got my hands on L18 FIA head and intake, im going to fit these Keihin 42 ITB:s to the head with custom adapter. So the engine is going to be pretty wild the block is going to be drilled from 85mm -> 88mm and I already got a custom crank for it then I'm waiting for forged rods and pistons. Also bought Nismo head gasket. So I'm selling my BCracing coilovers (custom made for 510, includes 510 struts & hubs with new bearings) 800e + shipping Also I'm willing to sell the 219 (SSS) head. PM if interested. More info next week when i get things done!
  9. Build is looking great, I hope that you get it running soon ! If the Nismo gasket leaks also, i think that you're head might be crooked from pulling it apart. Good luck and keep doing the good work, this topic is great way to get motivated before leaving to the garage.
  10. Hi. No paint on the bottom yet, and might not be for a while.. I want to test fit all the parts that bolt in to bottom of the car before painting it, just to make sure that i don´t have to drill or weld anything after the painting. So here's whats has happened. Found pair of OMP RS2 seats in good condition for only 350 euros, these are not FIA approved anymore but will go for the first two summers for practicing. Also bolted the trans on it's place so could also test the shifter. I'm happy to tell you that I dont have to make a remote shifter, just dont like how they look.. Assembled rear discs and calipers so could test fit the handbrake wires, just need to buy a pair of seat brackets more so i can where the passenger seat goes before i can install the lever. These arrived factory fresh from Italy this week, they might be a bit overkill but atleast i know that the car will stop in the future! Tarox B280 six point calipers. I'm hoping to use wilwood 11x0.81" discs with these, they should fit but if not I will go with 10.75" disc. So yeah not much but something. I'm looking for a R180 4.11 diff with "K", if someone has one to sell send me a pm or comment here.. Next thing is to order brake disc centers & some other stuff from DPracing and fit the front brakes in, then I'm going to need some rubber on my wheels because those brakes wont fit into those 13" steel wheels anymore. Also trying to start to build the engine soon. Thanks for reading my topic, all the tips are welcome!
  11. Engine bay looks so great ! Keep it up man! 6/5
  12. Yeah but APracing dosent have bolt on kit for 510 so those hubs need to be custom made. I have a friend who could make those so I'm just asking if anyone else has done it before so they might have the blueprints ready witch would save hours of time in planning.
  13. Looks great! I'm using 15/16" master cylinder with brake booster and have been a little afraid how long it's gonna be. I'm glad to see that someone else is also having a long booster / cylinder setup so there's a change it can work! Are you going to use a master cylinder brace like this? https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/510/brake-master-cylinder-brace-datsun-510 Keep up with the good work!
  14. Hi. I'm planning to use APracing calipers and 280mm discs on my 510 racecar build. Question is that is anyone here using APracing discs? I need to get disc bells / centers so if some one has any blueprints for those please help! -Jarno
  15. Something to share.. Hi, not much happened but here's something. Test fitted new rear brakes and the wheels, 14" wheel clears those 258mm discs nicely. I'm trying to go with 280mm in the front. Made some reinforcement weldings over the body, still going to do some to wheel wells & frame. Bought this nice Mikuni intake like I told in the earlier post. There's also the 219 Head wich came with the L18 engine. Next thing is to get the seat, test fit it to its right place so I can make sure that the steering wheel will be at the good height. After that i will fit the s13 handbrake lever and wires on their places, then i think im ready to paint the bottom of the car and assemble everything back in for the last time.
