    mrbigtankers 521

    It was a compliment. I was kind of cross-media posting, since some people on fb were calling them balloon/donut tires for having "large" sidewalls.

    I think the sidewalls are fine. Rubber bands look lame, unless you're trying to be a cholo?

    Just get a Wix filter, or even a Supertech filter from Walmart is better. Not even more expensive...

    510 subframe/chassis upgrades

    My brother & sister-in-law had a Subaru Forester. Rolled it on the freeway after being hit from the back/side, sister-in-law 8 months pregnant with their two other kids in the car. Everybody came out uninjured. No roll bar :P (orange stuff in the cabin was a smoothie or something...can't remember for sure)

    I don't think you are guaranteed any particular brand in Moog boxes these days...

    A 521 in Massachusetts

    I know Stoffregen has a lot of cred, but it's still wise to drive/press a bearing by the loaded race. If you drive the free race you can end up brinelling the race surfaces (in other words, dent the races with the balls). Of course the tighter the tolerances, the more true this is, and you may not damage the races if the bearing slips on/in easily, but...

    R200 LSD options/setup

    Just drive that thing dirty, it'll loosen up

    Hood looks good

  14. Legal here of all places. I move when I see them coming...
  15. Today I pooped in three different non-contiguous states, in three different time zones. I feel like that should be some kind of accomplishment.

    Clutch master cylinder cover problem

    Yeah, I was going to say I don't think they twist to a locking position, they just pop on/off

    Dont reuse a bearing you've pulled by the free race. But you may have already known that.

    Brake booster adapters

    Why wouldn't you use the B210 adapters? The boosters aren't cheap/easy to find anymore anyways...

    Brake Hose fittings

    Your old house was a banjo fitting with copper crush washers by the sound of it. The washers create the seal. If you change the hose to one with a flare fitting the caliper possibly won't seal without a copper washer.
  21. The first stands for fascism, the second for a republic based on inalienable God-given rights for all?

    R200 diff

    Stock R160 is 2 pinion and that's usually what dies. R180 you can find with a 4 pinion. Clutch LSD are 4 pinion and the spider gears don't end up racing around in one legged burnouts, so they hold up a lot better.

    Bypass Fuel Pump Relay?

    Auto manufacturers don't just add superfluous relays. I doubt the accessory wire is rated to handle the pump current draw

    Brakes Dont Brake

    Definitely need to bleed the whole system and adjust the rear drums. Need to know what you're dealing with to really help - what are the front calipers? Rears stock or disc or? What size is the master cylinder?
