Thanks zerow about the lights. They fit the 710/610 headlight pots? or do you need the BMW ones?

The BMW Center 'High Beams' will fit the 610/710 buckets. You will still have to trim the excess plastic on the lights themselves, but, other than that, the buckets require no modification (will check tomorrow for you) :)

I saw three of these parked outside the local Starbucks this morning, which tells me only one thing. There's too many self indulgent wieners in this city with too much bloody money. Now, if I was driving a 1973 610 four-door...
You would not be a self indulgent wiener, sir. You'd be a connoisseur.
Precisely. Champagne would fall from the heavens. Doors would open. Velvet ropes would part.

I think that they tried to correct the camber issue.was a ole school trick.Not much gained but some was. :unsure:
I had a Canadian Anniversary 710 some(10-12) years ago pretty sure it was a 76-77 :blink: (age yah know)It had the same brakes as the 510s and 610s. :lol:


Any idea if the spindle and wheel bearing was larger as in the 280zx?

I believe the HL struts don't fit the PL so what's different? strut to spindle angle?


Here's the Moog camber plate...

Hoping to get a 'feel' for them before tearing into it.

:unsure:
not 100% but I do not think they are the same size.
HL will fit the thing that people wanted was the smaller diamter coil springs.
Sure wish I had that 710, or at least the canadian anniversary badges off it.

It ended up going to Courtenay about 10 yrs ago, ever seen a green 2 dr ht 710 there>

I had PL510 struts in my 710 goon.......... everything looked good.... ... and the camber plates were right in the middle of adjustment

Troy Ermish told me that 710s will accept all the same struts as a PL510


Right now,,, I'm working on swapping in my 280zx struts with a PL510 spring perch welded on,,, ,, and 510 1.5" lowering springs.... .. no camber plates for now (hopefully it will be fine)... ... deffinatley need bump steer spacers though (because the angle of the 280zx spindle,,, and the strut is shorter)........ they are quite a bit heavier than 510 struts too

OK pl struts will swap with 710s.

280zx struts are shorter than the 510/710????

I have some Maxima struts which is based on the zx platform so I expect the struts are similar to the zx.

Where do you measure the strut length?

The 280zx springs are too big for 510s or 710s......

I would say 280zx struts are at least one inch shorter than stock 710 struts...... ... . I will do an exact measurment later



Bottom of this pic: stock 280zx strut........ ... above it is a stock 710 goon strut.......... above that are 2 shortened PL510 struts/coiolvers

You will need to change the spring perch Mike, The OD is wider on the zx/maxima strut(they are baically the same ) and will interfere/ not fit in the tower/ mount space

Are the door panels for all goons like this?

My '74 sedan don't go all the way up and are painted.

Would they swap? Not that I will but maybe I can get a set from another goon for the sedan.

Look what I just got in the mail!!!

Posted Image

..... a tasty matchbox from a '79 truck. Actually a Camper Option or Cab Chassis with the dual rear wheels. Vacuum advance works and holds vacuum, shaft is firm and looks like a new cap and wires on it too. Before my goon I thought the sedan was going to be my car forever, so I put my matchbox from my old L20B that was in my truck and has been sitting on the back lawn for 2 years. Figured I might as well use it along with my hi-volume oil pump and 90 amp alt.... hahahaha. Didn''t count on Mrs. d taking it for her own. :angry: So I found one in Victoria and for $50 delivered I got it. The guy held onto it for over a month for me and was great about it. I have a Z22 block coming from a trade and the guy is good enough to throw in a 720 alt. Because the sedan is converted over to IR I'll take my 90 amp alt. back and swap this in. :P (she'll never know)

Fuck, I forgot it's a California model. What a tool! Yup it's the remote igniter type so there's no matchbox on the side. Remote type were used from Sept '74. Well it won't go to waste.

Bonvo you're right. My electronic 'manual' reference shows a remote igniter after '74 for California cars. I just went out in the dark and checked... points!!!! I was told the original owners were from California. Maybe it's just a federal emissions car, US for sure. I'll check the emission sticker... later. Friggin cold and snowing like a bitch out tonight.
