What did you do to your dime today?

Recommended Posts

I am tired of the guys in the trucks section having all the fun, So I decided to start a thread here for the dimer's

 

Today I tore down a su dual choke cable and rebuilt it with all new cables and housings, installed it in my dime and it works great! :D

 

 

 

Now come on, I know somebody else did something to their 510, so lets here it.:lol:

I pulled my non working high beams off, and replaced them with some chicken wire stuffed between head light rings.

Now there is a little air circulation in there :D

Well, on Sunday I finally swapped rear hatches. I only bought the "better" hatch about 18 months or so ago. Best part- no more crappy aftermarket defroster wires to look at.

 

Swapping hatches followed the 4th of July project of getting the thing to idle again- it still has a Hitachi, and the idle circuit plugged up. Just took the idle cut solenoid out and blasted the port with 100PSI air. It idles now.

 

Now I just need to get the gauges working (the temp and fuel gauges read 2X correct, peg out at halfway- only when it's over 60 degrees) and bleed the rear brakes. Then it'll be driveable again. Ugly, but driveable.

 

Oh, and I finally got the 4th hubcap put on.

Bent the line for the nitrous purge and rerouted the nitrous feed line to give enough room to make it to the solenoids. Replaced part of the turbo drain line back to the pan and managed to crossthread one of the bolts, got lucky having a 8mm x1.25 tap and die to repair the threads and damaged bolt.

 

Drove about three blocks and had the gasoline fuel pump die while at an intersection , 45 min. and AAA tow truck later found a bad fuel pump relay and broken electrical conector.

I knew that I should be taking pics, but didn't I will pop it out of the dash and snap a pic of that end, I used bike brake cables and housings, fit like a glove, and works real smooth.

I put a ratsun sticker on mine. last friday I scrubbed down my z rims though and polished em up. They are not so shiny now though. just bright white. Shine to come.

you can see somewhat how shiny they are now though. also realizing that I should have cleaned the glass. I think I just wasted this sticker.

I installed an electric fan,and sync'ed the su's so that is some good forward progress, but then I figured out that my lights are not working, damn.... at least I have something else to do right? (Not like I really needed to add anything else to my arm length to-do list though) :blink:
