Seems like that center console might work awesome in 510s as well. Even if you don't need it, might make a good piece to sell.

Clear the leaves out so the drains are open and working. Hoods are all bad in that front area. Condensation runs down in that poorly drained (and non painted) area.

everything is laBLUE...lagoon.

 

car, blue. battery, blue. sparkplug wires, blue. gauge cluster, blue.  engine block, blue. wheels, blue.  ...my balls...

20160727_185902_zpsmmmjlxgs.jpg

 

turns out that a 510/521 clutch master is different than 610... so I had to modify one...

 

20160728_194601_zpsra1ga8fw.jpg

 

and its now adjustable...

So, it runs.  doesnt shut off. changed the volt regulator 3 times. no change. tested the ignition switch. good... turns out the alternator is over voltage.  put a saturn alt in. boom, all fixed.

 

and got rid of the auto choke relay, external volt reg, and cleaned the ugly 610 relay situation slightly.

 

20160727_175209_zpscenjxrgc.jpg

 

radiator had a crack...
