#1570450 510 carpet kits???

Posted by MikeRL411 on 17 June 2018 - 08:58 AM

JCWhitney carpet kits can match the texture and color of factory carpets.  The difference is that the front carpet is 3 piece [L / R / and transmission tunnel] rather than a heat formed one piece.  Good luck !  They also offer snap fasteners that mate with the factory floor fasteners that were installed at manufacture.

If you retained the original engine compartment "ID tag" then I would keep the color denoted on the factory tag.  It may not be gorgeous, or originally yellow, but in the long run it will be at least near authentic.  Nissan is not making 510s any more and the Jay Leno effect is setting in.

most certainly taken during the Spanish civil war. all four are carrying C96 Mauser derivatives with the lead chap definitely toting a “Schnellfeuer”.

 

The Schnellfeurpistole was not a C96.  It was a separate model 712.  The internal parts are different.  and the side plate markings are different and include a select fire mode lever.

They sell universal ones at oreilly. Have you checked if they still have them at the dealer?

 

Occam's Razor.  When multiple choices exist, the simplest one is more likely to be correct.

Very good Spanish Air Force plane.  2 seater so probably pilot trainer aircraft, but with observer window in the rear.  Note Rolls Royce Merlin engine which was willy Messerschmidt's want from the beginning.  Good "fudge on the tail emblem!

If you do have an L16 then you have 2 choices.  Early 510s came with an optional British Borg Warner transmission.  Later 510s came with an optional USA Muncie Indiana Borg Warner transmission. Both cars have the L16.

I think I am going to order one of those 240sx pipr to header gaskets.  Superficially looks like an RL411 NLA gasket to me.  I have been cutting and patching 2 each 510 gaskets as a substitute.

Be careful with that battery to alternator clearance.  Honda batteries are skinny and have the necessary clearance.  The original battery type is shared with only one car, the 1964 Corvair [really, I'm not kidding] which moved its spare into the engine compartment and had to source a narrower battery.  Datsun seized on this battery to insure clearance to the alternator when they installed the modified R1600 engine into the RL411.  It appears that you still have the original battery plastic tray, good for longevity of sheet metal.  Put a dusting of Baking Soda in the tray to help out in neutralizng any overflow or leakage of battery acid.

You have bad inclusions on the collector pipe welds.  You should grind and repair welds.  Otherwise you will have joint failure soon.
