    ."There are two types of car enthusiasts: 1-those who have never heard of the red car 2-those who read the red car at an impressionable age and had their lives ruined by it. I, of course, am in the second group."

240z Steering Play

Suspension and Steering 08 Sep 2014
After about 3 months, I finally tossed the wheels back on the Z (1971 240z). I am in the process of getting the vehicle ready to pass an out of province inspection. When I initially brought it in, they said I needed a new steering rack. Clearly not very easy to come across(New). I've...

Engine and Drivetrain Today, 03:15 PM
Hi!   I have a nasty vibration in my 1970 240z when driving in highway speeds. While going over everything in the drivetrain I noticed some play in the transmission end of the driveshaft. Is this normal or should there be no play at all?   Here's a video I shot today: http://www.youtube...

Electric Fuel Pump Install - Keep Mechanical Pump?

Carburetor Central 14 Apr 2015
I only drive my 240z every other weekend or so.  After it sits for a week the fuel system is empty and takes the stock mechanical pump many rotations of the engine to fill everything up and start.  I plan on installing a Carter electric pump at the tank along with an adjustable fuel pre...

My New Z

Open S30 Z Discussions 15 Apr 2015
I've lurked here for a while, but, never posted since I didn't own a z. This morning, I got a delivery.     This car was purchased new by my uncle in 1976, bought by my father from him in the late 80's, and now it's mine.   Currently, it's not running. My dad parked it away one w...

Zinc Additives, Cam Shaft Or Rocker Wear, And Mileage - A...

Engine and Drivetrain 13 Apr 2015
I'm on about mile # 30,000 of my old 1978 stock 280Z engine and have never used a zinc additive or special oil on this engine.  Just common oils, like Quaker State and Pennzoil 10-40W.  I think that my engine has about 150,000 miles on it.  No problems or signs of excessive wear....

Cam Wear?

Engine and Drivetrain 05 Apr 2015
All of the lobes on my cam are perfect and smooth except for the exhaust lobe on the #5 cylinder. I have had this engine for about 5,000 miles now and I don't think this has gotten any worse but not completely sure. When I drag the edge of a razor blade over the lobe I can feel the roughness but...

Internet Expertise Exemplified By A Conversation About Zinc

Open Chit Chat Yesterday, 05:59 PM
Rather than fill grannyknot's thread with more stuff, I figured I'd just reply here to patcon's comment.   Just not a fan of people who defend their positions too zealously with little but the internet to support it.   From here, #35 -  http://www.classiczc...cam-wear/page-2  ...
