    ."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."

Open Discussions 24 Mar 2015

Hi everyone,   drowning in various NOS engine back breather, heater, and coolant hoses here that seem to have the colour from the cotton weave faded to a dull black or grey colour.  I have now seen them in both finishes, and was wondering what is more "correct" as per Datsun....

L28 About To Pull The Head, Any Advice?

Engine and Drivetrain 26 Mar 2015
Alright so since the last I posted up here, I blew the L26, road tripped 5 hours to pick up an L28 load it into the lidless trunk of an oldsmobile and drive it back. Then I stripped it down did several new gaskets, and painted it. Threw it in the Z with DGVs and after a month of fighting with the...

Afm Spring Adjustment - Bothersome Thoughts

Fuel Injection 22 Mar 2015
I haven't been able to really define what it is about adjusting the spring of the AFM that bothers me.  But I think I've narrowed to down to one thing - preload.     Preload affects when the vane starts to move due to air flow and should be an exact number, matched to the idle air...

Quick Jerk When Letting Off Of The Excelerator Pedal

Help Me !! Yesterday, 11:03 AM
Car runs great, except for one little quirk.  While driving at highway speeds, 60-70mph, if I let off the excelerator there is a quick jerk that scares the heck out of the passenger.  (I know I'm letting my foot off the gas, but the passenger doesn't)  I was told the problem may be...

Bad Tachometer And Condenser/capacitor Fix

Electrical Today, 11:37 AM
I had a collection of odd problems all happen in one day, hot start (unclear why), stuck fuel pump relay (had to use my pump switch to get home), and brake pads grinding on the disc (caught just in time), and one of them, just to confuse the overall situation, was that my tachometer stopped worki...
