STRUTS WILL WORK!

I bought those struts yesterday crossing my fingers and hoping they'd fit. Looks like they do! I did the measurements, and it looks like I'll get a 1-inch drop if I cut the spring perches straight across. I think I will take the advice of other 510 folks that have done the same swap and make the strut height adjustable, using spacers. That way, I can change the height at my leisure.

Also, I checked my box-o-parts, and I found a timing chain in good shape. I'll have to check to see if it's stretched too much, but if it's within reasonable specs, I'll have everything I need to put the engine back together. I think. haha...
