#1522842 What did you do to your dime today?

Posted by shacks510 on 10 October 2017 - 07:09 PM

edekalil did you recently tint the windows? I never noticed before. It looks good. Been thinking about tinting my windows but sometimes tint looks weird on 510s.


#1522816 Pressure Building in Gas Tank (510)

Posted by shacks510 on 10 October 2017 - 03:11 PM

Are you sure it's being pressurized? Or is it under vacuum from the fuel level dropping? I ran a hose from the top of the tank to under the car.

#1518112 How do I route this fuel line from my 1971 Dime?

Posted by shacks510 on 18 September 2017 - 07:30 PM

The fuel line runs under the passenger floor pans, up into the wheel well, and through the oval hole below the headlights.

If you need an additional few bucks I'll buy the spook from you.


#1511301 What do you use to clean your old, rusty, gunky gas tank?

Posted by shacks510 on 19 August 2017 - 09:50 AM

Why bother sealing it, if you use the car it's unlikely that I will get bad enough to cause any issue.


Exactly. I think sealers are a scam. My 510 even sat for 12 years and the inside of the tank looked brand new. Fuel filter didn't have a single piece of debris.

Good idea

Just use the string and pull it through the window. Drive it like that.

Or just zip tie the throttle wide open and take it for a rip.

#1504179 Door Lock Issue

Posted by shacks510 on 18 July 2017 - 05:58 PM

Check the plastic keeper thingy that holds the bar into the swinging arm on the lock. They wear out. I bought some universal ones and put a zip tie on the back side of the keeper to keep it from sliding out since it was much longer than stock. I used a rubber grommet for 3 years until it wore out. Put a new plastic keeper and it's never locked so nicely. You shouldn't need to touch the plastic adjuster since it doesn't actually move.

Talk to your neighbors and see if they have cameras.

#1500872 L16 to L20b parts compatible?

Posted by shacks510 on 03 July 2017 - 08:20 PM

L16/18 crank mains are 55mm, L20B is 60mm. Caps will not interchange. You might have to line bore if you mix match.

Most hardware will interchange; the L20B has an extra bolt on each side at the top of the timing cover for the taller block, has three 10mm bolts for the alt bracket vs. two 8mm on the L16 (depending on year L16). Also, L20B uses a 6 bolt flywheel, not 5. ZX turbo head bolts are also a better option if you're buying new.
