After 5 years I have decided it's time I did some work on the 510. So arranged with a friend to bring over his flat bed to move the 510 out of hibernation up to my house.
Taking a good battery and some fuel the 510 burst into life and move part way from garage before stalling and refusing to start. It was out far enough to be able to winch it onto flat bed.
once at the house after a little investigation the she was running again (rotor arm and moved high enough to no longer be turning).
No parked on the drive

I had to move the 510 again which refused to start and I have found that the carb is no longer supplying fuel to the engine. I replaced the carb with the one from my L20B to get the car moved but it won't idle and having to rev it about 3k to get it to move I decided to rebuild the original carb.
I had opened it and remove some parts during investigations but you can see how much of a state it's in.

Tonight it's refitted and running sweet. I would have used a rebuild kit but the car won't be on the car once the L20B is fitted.
More to come

Nice work. And good to hear that your 810s get the garage ;)

I'm guessing 510s would be getting pretty thin on the ground in the UK?

Hi Mate
Been a long time,
Bother the 810's fj20et 180B (uk version) and VG30e 200B (from Victoria Australia)

There is only a handful of 510's in the uk, more imports probably than UK registered ones
