  1. Special pics for DP...... In a wierd way I like this next one.
  2. Thanks but Wasnt that from a 510? Are they even the same? If I need to we can explore it more... as of now I'm hoping I'm good.... minus the fact of the slight leak my heater core is in really good shape for the age..... really hoping it's a simple fix, it would only leak under pressure which would amount to a couple drops after driving 30 minutes.....
  3. I think hes in the same boat as you.... load exhaust and still has the 4spd.....
  4. Sorry dp..... You think that's bad you should have seen some of my other ideas last night for the turn out.... I was looking at what I had for left over pipes and bends .... I have a 90 degree and a 180 that slips right in ..... that would have been funny but to much.... Maybe I'll put them in later for a pic just to make you twitch....
  5. Havent had the window open yet with this pipe to know for sure but I do plan on doing a turn out so that would make it a little taller.... The other pipe was longer and the one before that had a turn out, both were above the cab and i never really smelled the exhaust with those setups... When I have the back open i usually have the dash vent or windows down so it seems to push the air out through the rear window.....
  6. I'm hoping for the truck but obviously the 510 will be just as good to see ....
  7. I'll get some good video on the dyno.... Their tech is gonna drive it and do the pulls so I'll get to watch and take video .. I get an hour to do what ever I want.... the guy might make suggestions but I'm the one who has to make the changes, jets, timing, etc ....
  8. I think this new spot might work better, closer to the show and it looks like we would all have to go past it anyhow.... just get your coffees first..... So maybe meet 845 - 9 Plan to head towards the show by 915... That should put us at the gates just before 930..... Let me know if everyone like this idea... also should we get together and to the show 15 minute sooner or do the time work?
  9. And then I came home to this waiting for me..... It has a 2" Id in and out...... My new glass pack stack..... Yes it will be painted black, and I'll probably add a turn out on top... I go to work early and the noise level has always been questionable, this took it down a notch, just enough I think and I still have the sound I like.... tomorrow I'll see what it sounds like getting on the highway, nice long on ramp where I run the rpms up...
  10. Driving home today I caught this, some sort of netting.... I knew I didnt see it behind me after I drove over it...... Got all wrapped up in there.....
  11. Heater core is at a repair shop.... waiting on diagnosis and hopefully a repair..... And I managed to finally get my appointment on the local dyno.... Friday the 4th.... My goal is to atleast see something in the 90hp range to the wheels.... my dream is to see triple digits even if it's only 100hp.....
  12. I have had a caliper that would only move so much and it wasnt enough to actually stop the vehicle..... they would just move in and out but never extend any further..... You could take the caliper and make sure the piston is extending and releasing properly..... I leave the pads in and then press the pedal till it closes it should not stay tight..... This was a similar issue I had with my Chevy and I had to replace the caliper.... So a rebuild or replacement of your caliper might be the trick....
  13. Another option.... This is east of newton and north of Brookline..... About 12 minutes to the show on back roads..... Area called chestnut hills.... This spot is next to the movie theater... Just looking for a place that has parking....
  14. Do you know when they start letting you park? And the location is sort of near route 2.... It would take us 35 40 minutes to get to the show with back roads..... Should we try to meet closer? Opinions on when to meet up?
  15. The way I see it is the passenger side is doing its job correctly because ( I think you said) the pads look good..... Its clamping and releasing properly.... Most likely the pins are stuck on the driveside so the only pad moving is the pad closest to the caliper vs both .... This would give you poor braking from the driver side causing extra wear on that inside pad and leaving the passenger side to do all the work.....
  16. Could be the passenger side is actually doing all the work and the driverside could just be along for the ride..... Dragging and grinding the pads down...
  17. 620slodat is on the right track.... to add to that your caliper might not be returning ... that would create drag when not apply the brakes..... But I'm more inclined to blame the pins.... If the caliper cant slide on the pins then It cant clamp both sides equally, it will only extend the pad closest to the piston and cause that one to wear quicker... the outside pad relys on the ability to slide on those pins.....
  18. I know you said it before you dont like driving your 521 on the highway, so hopefully the spot I'm looking to meet will work for you too....
  19. So I figure this is relevant too... What time should we meet? I think the show says 10, but I also saw 930... maybe that's when they open the gates to park the cars.... So with that said, not sure if this is the place you were thinking demo, but I think it's the best.... tons of parking.... Starbucks 12 market Pl dr. Waltham ma.. You, me and Santiago would have a 45 to 50 minute ride to the Starbucks and then it's a 25-30 minute ride to the Lars Anderson museum.... In my opinion I say we meet around 830-845 and plan on leaving Starbucks by 9 to be there for 930.....
  20. Hey mainer311 you going to Lars Anderson Japanese car days this year.... A couple of us are trying to meet up before to caravan in together.... It's being discussed in the event section...
  21. I'm all registered.... I dont know the area so as long as it works for anyone else, that Starbucks is fine by me, I'll be coming down rt2 to 95....
  22. Well i found the source of the leak..... Unfortunately i didnt find it till I reinstalled everything..... I thought I checked every way possible, I submerged it in water and pressurized it and no bubbles.. I guess I didnt use enough pressure or leave it long enough.... After reinstalling eveything it still look good, saw no drip.... unfortunately after i took it for a ride and it sat for a few hours it dripped, but this time I could see where it actually came from..... looks like it's the seam where the end cap would be attached to the core it has to be so small because it takes a few hours for one drop to form..... Either way I'm gonna pull it back out and have it repaired... Figures I got the ac working and now the morning have drop to 40 and I wanna be able to use my heat and that broke....
  23. I figured I'd add this here instead of in a build thread..... If anyone wants to meet up before the show to caravan in so we can have a row of datsuns let me know... I'm trying to figure out the best place to meet and what time.. Let me know if you have suggestions too ...
  24. I'll try to figure out a place and time that works for all of us to meet.... open to ideas .....

I bought a metric ratio adaptor for my datsun speedometer from them last year... nice people....
