I redid a lot of the wiring in the car because I wanted to make sure I wasn't gonna have a fire hazard and was really scared about my work prior. Now I've got it all buttoned up and done correctly :)

I sourced a smaller coil mount so I can use that. I start the car up every morning and thankfully, the radiator doesn't leak but I still haven't gotten under the car to check that rear main seal. My diff is also leaking but I don't suspect the bolt.
As far as the clutch adjustment, I'll be getting to that this weekend. Unfortunately, the spal fan is still a bit louder than I'd like but engine is cool so I can't object.

I'm gonna adjust the brakes a bit more because I'd like more of a response because they only work after being just about fully applied.

All lights etc work EXCEPT hazards because I'm not sure how to wire it from ez wiring harness. It's a bitch.

I drove it just a little bit and I'm running no choke because one, I'm in California and two, I can't find one that'll work well with the choke being a front-car pull type.

As far as idle, I don't mess with the carbs too much but just idle adjustment. I think I need to move my distributor a bit? Which way lowers idle? And I have a timing gun. Anyone know what it's supposed to be at?

I almost forgot! Here's some pics of my babies!
This is somewhat how my choke was setup but I took it off and bent that piece in the process. Cheap shit.

With that being said, I found this kit online which would be best.
I've read multiple times that dellortos and webers are very similar so I'm thinking this would work for my situation and it's $109 complete which isn't bad.

Once again, thanks for the input.

Also I'm baffled with my linkage situation. So I handed a complete cannon manifold linkage setup to chuck but he said I was still missing some pieces because dellortos are a bit different. He said I was missing a piece for the idle adjustment. However with that said, does anyone know what I'm missing and where I could possibly get it? Here's what he's put on and it is what I had given him. I figured idle adjustment was set from those threads?


Also chucks a great guy. A bit pricey but great guy and definetly helping.

Im pretty sure he ALSO wants something that looks good afterwards

the gauge is just about the entire size of the visible area in the stock 510 dash. You can paint it black and you wouldn't even be able to see it. It would serve as a mounting plate that's firm. Be my guest and use something less as sturdy. With the dash being black, you'll see a minimal amount of the metal anyways and if it were painted black, I don't think a single person besides the car's owner would know what it was... so yeah, something that functions well and looks even better.

Edit: this is the install on a 510 and I know this because I've done it. As far as a 620, it looks to be plug and play.

My rule number one (for rims).... Never fall in love with rims that don't fit. They are like having a super model girlfriend.... look great and everyone want's her, but what they don't know is, the rest of the time she's a high maintenance needy pain in the ass and YOU have to make all the changes in the relationship. Rims should fit the car not the car fit the rims.

Fair enough. Completely respectable but I'm already too deeply in love lol
