Redwing's Car - An Update

Open S30 Z Discussions 16 Aug 2015
Round two for the 280Z.   I filled up the back of my wife's station wagon and drove over to Jai's house.   I put in the battery hold down bracket I fabricated (and my wonderful wife painted). No more twine holding the battery in place. Those are M6 wing nuts holding the two parts of the...

Fuel shoots into engine bay on backfire

Carburetor Central 09 Jun 2015
I bought these SU carbs used and have not run them yet.  The visual inspection looks fine and I had Rebello do the big bore conversion and give them a good once over.  The motor has never run so a backfire is to be expected while i get things sorted out.  What concerns me is that o...

Differential Output Shaft Stub Question

Engine and Drivetrain 31 Aug 2015
I've got a 1971 240Z that I am the third owner.  The PO swapped out the transmission for a 5 speed and at the same time swapped the rear diff.  The rear diff is marked as a 3.36 which I understand was the standard ratio on a 1971 manual (so I am confused why he changed it).  I have...
