Open S30 Z Discussions 07 Jun 2015
All,   I looked at a late 1970 production car yesterday.  Other than being in 905 red the car looked great and for an East Coast car was remarkably in good shape.  it was very original, and even still had the 'D' hubcaps.  However, there is something that gives me pause:...

Project Crush

Open S30 Z Discussions 16 Jul 2015
I thought I'd make my own thread as I seem to make a new one every week or so for this weeks issues. Long story short if you haven't been following, or can't keep up. I purchased a 240z south of the border (yup I'm in Canada), last spring. Over the last year and a half I've managed to bring it ba...

Slipping Clutch.

Help Me !! 06 Mar 2015
I just took my 71 240Z for its first test run after doing an auto to manual tranny swap. Its a 5 speed out of a 78 Z. The push rod on the slave cylinder was too long, and was keeping me from being able to mount it without engaging the fork a little, so I cut about 1/4" off the rod so I could atta...

Balance driveshaft after installing new U-joints?

Engine and Drivetrain 28 Jul 2015
I was advised to have the driveshaft (propeller shaft) balanced after putting new U-joints, which is scheduled to happen this week.   There's a new vibration last few weeks that may or not have to do with the U-joints.   No vibration previously, and the driveshaft hasn't been altered or...

240z fuel and brake line insulator sets and steering rack...

Garage Businesses 19 Apr 2013
Each 240z fuel and brake line insulator was reproduced in a urethane plastic on a milling machine, which made for a very high quality master insulator. Each insulator is then cast in a two part high quality silicone mold. The insulators are cast in a urethane rubber with a shore hardness...

Hella H4 Conversion headlamps don't fit

Electrical Yesterday, 04:48 PM
I got a set of hella H4 conversion headlamps, and I tried them to see how it fits.  The H4 bulb goes in fine, then you put the rubber cover on, and when you try to put the lamp into the bucket, the rubber cover hits, so it doesn't fit.  It will fit though, with the rubber cover off....

Internally Regulated Alternator Trivia - Bootstrap Current?

Electrical 26 Jul 2015
I did the internally regulated alternator upgrade a little while ago, and everything is fine with the exception of one ignorable low priority issue. Such a small issue that I wouldn't consider it a "problem", but more of a "curiosity" and it highlights some (what I think is) interesting alternato...

L24 Rebuild -Again!

Engine and Drivetrain 12 Feb 2015
Yes this is the second time around for the little L.  And boy I have learned a lot and probably forgot a lot too! First time around the machinist/builder did most of the work. He dissembled and assembled the block and head and I put the two together. I degreed the cam and everything else to...

Cleaning and restoring guage faces

Interior 01 Oct 2013
Without replacing the gauge faces, how do you clean the faces, especially the numbers on the speedometer and tachometer, and the odometer wheels so you can see them better with whatever light you get out of the dim bulbs? I have no reference to go by, so does anyone have a picture of what the...
