    Perhaps you will see on last pic above that my mechanic choose to cut metal a little bit behing grille on passenger side, matter of pulling away the rad from the alternator.

    He also had to cut lips around the grille from inside engine bay to get the rad as close as possible from the metal.

    It worked...so i am a happy guy!

  2. Hi

    I will finally go for Koyo rad HH02598 for my 510.

    Before taking the pretty expensive plunge (will buy in US = ship + VTA = €€€), i did take a look at radiator dimensions and also check within angine bay for the fitting...

    Looks like a tight fitting!

     

    For my peace of mind, can anybody share installation feedback of this rad?

    No surprises???

    Thanks

  3. Hi

    The ignition switch for 510 from 07/70, 240Z, 260 and 280 is definitively not compatible with my 70 510 steering cover!

    My car should should have been manufactured between 10/69 and 07/70...kinda hybrid version between 2 generations

    Forget the locking of steering column...not a big deal.

    Fix the original switch in cover, all is OK now!

    Thanks for support

    I saw on ZCarDepot that 510 from 07/1970 to 73 had common ignitions switch with 240/260/280Z

    Will tell if it works over the week end.

     

    It worked fin with the ignition switch set from ZCarDepot...but now the cover doesn't seem to fit

    The switch diameter is not matching the column diameter, but a plastic ring was present on column, so i used it. Ring was precut to allow locking system to operate.

    If you are in France, yours could be very different than our USA spec!  The USA spec 70-73 510 had a Federally mandated locking steering column, as grannyknot shows.  I have seen Euro spec cars online with a different ignition switch assembly.................NON locking.

     

    Datzenmike is correct that the 68-69 510 had a simple dash mount switch that looks similar to your pictured.

     

    Does your car have the 70-73 ROUND gauges ie speedometer etc?

    These?

    Steering column does have the locking option

    Wires: WY / WR / BW / BL / LB

    Will try my spare ignition switch i have for my 280Z

  8. Hi,

    My 510 (1600sss) come from Portugal and it seems that seat belt were not mandatory at this time...

    Feel just weird to drive the car without.

    Does somebody know if the seat belt mount should be in place as per factory standard?

    If can feel a circular shaped part when pressing the pillar on driver's & passenger's side.

    See picture

  9. Hi,

    Not sure this is the right place for such post.

    Not a top prio for me, but i just missed 2 opportunities to get it on CL near L.A...so sick, but for oversea buyer like me, not easy to make the difference and convince seller. Anyway

    Don't want to buy brand new has the rest of my car will not be as shiny! ☺️

     

    So if anybody has 1 spare for sale, i am interested!

    Thanks!

     

    Seb
