  1. Past hour
  2. Imagine that!

    There would have to be some serious real time traffic feed, surely eating up recourses on already taxed satellite constellations. GPS is only accurate up to a certain point, and can be up to 5 mi. off. Its more accurate if you add Russia's GLONASS satellites, but not good enough to react to multi- car accidents I'm sure.

  4. 1972 Float Adjustment ...

    J, Can you mark a line on the outside of the fuel bowl where the top of the gas reaches? It is hard to tell from the angle of the photos?
  5. This is a friendly reminder from JNC that it’s the first day of spring. That means it’s time for the cherry blossoms to come out, and for your car that’s been in hibernation all winter to come out as well. Take to the … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  6. 240z won’t start

    It's either a faulty solenoid or a voltage drop in the ignition circuit. I had the same problem and found I only had 9 volts to the solenoid. To solve the problem I wired in a relay. The relay actuates with the 9 volts then switches on 12 volts from the battery to the solenoid. If you have full voltage to the solenoid then the solenoid is probably the culprit.
  7. It's up to 60. Discovery Channel is probably bidding. It actually looked pretty good on the road. They dropped their horsepower increase estimates from 300 over stock to 100 over stock. Still, 250 horsepower is not bad. 450 would be absurd.
  8. 240z won’t start

    The diagram Look intimidating but I will try it this weekend. I’ll post an update. Thanks
  9. 1976 280Z Restoration Project

    This is where the dual voltage gun helps. But coverage in these tight spaces can be tricky as you end up with eddy currents that deflect the powder. Sometimes I pulse the gun with no current to let the powder drift into contact.
  10. More living room furniture

    She actually told me to get out of the way. I can't wait until she's a teenager. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Classic Zcar Club mobile
  11. Yet another EFI help thread :/

    On the loud injectors, if an injector was dry would it be louder? It seems like it would be... Maybe partially dry?
  12. Re my standard paranoia. Everybody is harvesting your data. Facebook can't be the only one. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/facebooks-rules-for-accessing-user-data-lured-more-than-just-cambridge-analytica/2018/03/19/31f6979c-658e-43d6-a71f-afdd8bf1308b_story.html?utm_term=.d6f8e9a2913b
  13. Yesterday
  14. Do I need to remove rust on brake rotors?

    I had some about like that. I sanded them with pretty rough sandpaper then used them. They shined up pretty quick via the pads after that. I would be more focused on the bearings, if you're hoping to avoid a bearing change. If you're sure that they're new and were installed correctly, then sand the rotors to a rough clean and they should end up looking good. If you do get a shimmy or a warple, you can easily swap them out later. Sorry site, that's my low-budget recommendation. Make sure you clean up the spots where the wheel seats so that you get a nice clean flat foundation for the wheels.
  15. Triple M´s?

    That would make more sense, at least to me.
  16. Silvermine Power Steering

    Is this system electric or hydraulic!
  17. RIV Inspection

    I guess the people in Washington D.C. are not the crooks in this hemisphere. The working guy always gets screwed! DAMN THEM!
  18. Tennessee Z stash on CL

    I was about to say, I thought this was Thumpgun's stuff
  19. Mustache bar bushings

    I second...
  20. Purchased my First S30 Today!

    "Round tops" refers to the earlier 240z SU carbs. Many people convert "flat tops" to "round tops". Some would argue the flat tops can be made to perform. Although they are more complicated... Look at Ztherapy's website...
  21. Thank You! Captain Obvious has gotten me trained with his mantra, "pictures or it didn't happen".
  22. Fifty years ago, Mazda Canada started when a Familia Rotary Coupe, known on this side of the Pacific as an R100, went on sale. To celebrate half a century of sales, Mazda Canada released a flashback video covering significant milestones and models. We hate … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  23. Well NISSAN anyway. For all that didn't watch or didn't care it was truly a good event. Mazda ran strong for several hours remaining in the top 3 for several hours. CADDY looked good also. Its a shame that all of the prototypes that race under IMSA sanctioning are not competitive under WEC sanctioning. I would really enjoy seeing them ccompete at Le Sarthe. My little one watched the entire race practically. He even drew a pretty good rendition of the track with chalk on our driveway purely from memory. That is a TRUE racer! Turn 17 (the final turn) proved to be very challenging the entire race long. Two cars were out in the first 45 minutes one,being a Ferrari, ended up on it's roof! Good stuff. Now the boys and myself await the mid-June classic from France. THANK GOODNESS FOR BIG SCREEN TV'S
  24. 1975 280 starts for 2 seconds and shuts off???

    That's what I was afraid of, missing the Z nationals trying to get it running again (not really, but I was stressing over it not running).
  25. 1975 AFM check out

    Took it out for a test drive, same as before, only issue is a slightly smoother idle, and seemed like the BCDD was holding revs up more than normal, keeping it higher than the original, but still working by cutting off at less than 10 mph. I am going to reinstall the orig anyway, its just prettier... I will measure the depth of the bypass screw on the orig, the plastic plug was in place and everything looks like new, was difficult to turn so did not want to mess with it. After measuring I will see where its set at by comparing the replacement AFM which is not as hard to turn.
  26. Oil in Strut Tubes?

    Yeah, I immediately thought 50 was way too high, but I don't have the FSM handy, so I didn't comment on that. I knew someone would correct him if it was indeed wrong.
  27. Rumor Mill - more Z35 speculation

    They’re still a ways off from having anything besides pixels to play with ...
  28. Speedometer-Anyone Recognize This?

    I got info. Lots! Of course most of it is completely useless, but I got lots of it!! Happy to share!
