This is a really good height for one that is driven often, especially "in anger".  😁

Got tired of spending more time under the 510 than in it, and finally gave up on the POS Ermish CV axles. They had so much play in the coupler the bolts would back out after 45 minutes of "spirited" driving. Granted that's with 370 rwhp, but shit fire and brimstone what a crappy design. Heard nothing but good things, so replaced them with the Driveshaft Shop's 944 setup. Game on!

This is about as low as I'd want to go - the full tire is still visible front and rear... and it doesn't look like a rally car anymore (not that rally 510's are bad, not at all... just not the look I'm going for here!)

I used to say that... now mines pretty low. I’d go lower in the front of mine but then I can’t turn cause the tires rub to much hahaha

ok- just went and checked my setups.

 

the only correction I made above is the grounds for the relays. 
 

low beam relay is grounded always to common ground.

 

hi beam ground is run through the selector stalk

 

when highs are turned on via the stalk both Low and highs are on.

 

both my 510 and 620 are h4 bulb converted not that it should make a difference 

Dude lol check the diagram I did on my build thread

Glad to hear you got it figured out!

 

Seems a lot of people are afraid to rewire their cars... but it’s not that bad and is so much nicer with new wires.

Got the head back for the Goon. Have to clean things up and mount the cam towers and cam. Hope all goes good. Then hope to get it on the motor and do any adjustments and finnish mounting everything else up and crank her up. If I get that lucky in the next few days before I go to my folks for Thanksgiving. I'm sure it won't go that fast but I'm not in a hurry. I'll probably be posting asking questions. Also bought a couple cheep spot weld cutters also after reading the post on issues on someone's frame rail.

Gonna torque the cam tower bolts today and hope all goes good with the cam being able to turn by hand. If all goes good I'll install it on the motor. Then get everything else put on.
