#1554572 What did you do to your dime today?

Posted by shacks510 on 30 March 2018 - 09:05 AM

Let's go this Sunday
Lotsa fools and miatas


Sunday isn’t a good day to be in that area. Lots of riff raff and police presence.

Mulholland, a Canyon with quite a few of "Those Turns" and is why I quit going there and simply drove Carbon Canyon when I lived in Whittier.


This part of Mulholland is a bad place to be. The spot was burned out years ago and many things have changed up there to deter people from hanging out. Surrounding roads are usually ok.

I’ve seen a similar akina license plate frame. It had what yours have on the bottom, but on the top with kanji’s on the bottom.

#1546801 What to coat a 510 exhaust manifold with?

Posted by shacks510 on 18 February 2018 - 05:21 PM

I have VHT paint on my manifold, and it started to fall apart within a thousand miles or so.

Anti sieze can be used as a coating, and it looks very nice when it's burned on, but the burning on process is soooo toxic. I have done it this way before but because of the toxicity, I will never do it again.
 
I like breathing...


I have seen this, and it’s something I’d like to try. I think it’s something you’d do on an already running/tuned engine, not a first start where you’re working over the engine adjusting things. Start the car and walk away deal.

People always use the wrong terminology for things. Calling a single cast iron exhaust manifold “headers” for example. There are some “correct” terms for things, but are words I don’t like to use, like subframe. People like to use buzzwords because they sound cool, or just don’t know any better, which is usually the case.

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.
