These motors are so tempting I'd love to have one, I have to resist.

 

Now the real question is for how long can you resist haha.

pretending I'm in California gonna go to 510 meet and get up with Busta and Tanker for inspiration, but in reality going to the house and building to work on my chapter of the 510 in McComb, MS.

 

They may not be the best in the west but for sure not the least in the east.

Haha good one. Bust is da man. Looking good.

Ed, what is the color code of your ‘70?

 

It looks real close to the original color of my ‘71.

Not sure but when I get back by the middle of next week I'll look and post it. And it does look a lot like your 71's color. You have one cherry looking 2 door there.

Thanks but It no longer looks like that as that is an old picture.  As soon as I get my garage organized from moving in last year I’ll start rebuilding it.

I found a guy making factory replacements, works great so far.

This weekend I removed the old diff and driveshafts from my 510 to swap in an R180 and CV halfshafts. It wasn't quite as easy as described; "Remove driveshafts using a 14mm wrench" and "Unbolt differential securing bolts and nuts and remove from crossmember", made it seem a lot easier than in reality. To anyone who has not done this before, you need to grind the outside circumference and the top of the end of the 14mm wrench to make it narrower, to access the nuts and bolts that hold them to the hubs. Regarding the diff, once all the nuts and bolts are removed, there are two square spacer washers sandwiched between the diff and the bottom of the crossmember on the rearmost pair of vertical bolts through the diff. I drove these forward with a flat bladed screw driver until it alows the diff to be moved forward enough and the rear 40915be9b1ba38bb8.jpg40915be9b1f02912b.jpg40915be9b1f0dc681.jpg40915be9b1f17ce0e.jpgstuds are free of the moustache bar. The moustache bar can then be removed and the diff pulled back and manhandled out. I now need to swap the driveshaft flanges on the new/ old diff and swap over the bolts on the stub axles.

I settled in on an LDPerformance boost controller for my turbo. $160 for a fully controllable boost solenoid, with built-in pressure sensor, and ability to modulate the boost on the fly w/ gear or tach signal, or run a set-and-forget boost setting, AND be able to toggle between the two options? Yeah. It's everything I would have designed myself if I felt like taking the time to program it all.

I began the process of re-routing some of my exhaust. It hangs pretty low as it has to jump over the janky transmission crossmember I made a while back. So... I'll probably have to fabricate something for that as well...
