Tranmission gear noise magically solved

Engine and Drivetrain Today, 06:00 AM
Over the past two-three years my 82-83 ZX trans in my 73, rebuilt about 10 years ago with new bearings and syncros, has been making more and more gear whine noise. Not all the time, but specifically in 3rd and 5th. Most noticable on the highway. In forth it's mostly not there, but move to 3rd or...

Jag SU's on 240z - linkage issues

Carburetor Central Yesterday, 10:14 AM
Hi all,  its been a while since I've been on. The 240 is getting welded up, and so I've put stuff on the back burner for a while, but it will be back soon, so I am working on getting the engine ready to install. I've bought the "big" SU from a XKE I think. They bolt right up, but I dont know...

Wheel and tire size recommendations

Wheels, Tires and Brakes 04 Oct 2015
I'm working on a '73 240z, and while I'm fine with mechanical work and such, wheels and tire sizes are a completely different world to me. My 240 is basically stock with the L28 and 5-speed swap, and Tokico Illumia adjustables. My daily is my motorcycle so the Z would be mostly when I need to...

Going Coilovers

Suspension and Steering 26 May 2015
Alright so I've decided after taking someone elses Z for a spin this past weekend (and being thrilled with the ride quality) that I want to go coilovers. The kicker here is that I do not have the know-how or ability to section the struts or weld so I'm looking for something that I can bolt in dir...

Clifford Performance 280z downdraft intake manifold

Exhaust Today, 10:02 AM
Clifford store seems to have fewer items now than last year but this is fairly new. It's been years since they had Datsun stuff.   But they're not selling headers for my Chevy truck anymore, damn.   http://www.shop.clif...d-48-4500WH.htm

Dimmable LEDs?

Electrical Yesterday, 06:21 PM
I talk to car people occasionally (over coffee & pie..) about things.  One of them is the Dimmable LED bulb.  I never thought of them as 'dimmable' in the sense of what a filament  bulb can do, so I wanted to ask to get some information in the context of S30 cars.  Are the...

Side view mirror seat needed

Body and Paint (280ZX) Today, 08:46 AM
The other day I was getting out of the Z and shut my door and right as the door shut the driver side side view mirror popped out of its seat and fell to the concrete then shattered into a million pieces. I have a new mirror, but I have to solve the problem of why it fell out in the first place. I...

Horn stopped working because.....

Electrical 26 Sep 2015
Was cruising around in the 77 280z today. Is nice having the drivers side seat fixed, thanks to grannyknot (Chris). He had the part I needed. Beautiful day it is! I saw someone I recognized and went to tap the horn and got nothing. Tried again and still nothing. Went back home and traced it (fina...

Recommendation for new radiator and elctrical fan for 280Z

Engine and Drivetrain 31 Aug 2015
Hi All,   First off I apologize if this topic has been covered elsewhere. I though I've researched the forum good enough, but I have not been able to find good discussion that would cover this topic extensively. If there is a threat out there that you know of, please point me to it.   T...

Mystery SU Needles -- "369"

SU Carb Technical Articles Today, 05:11 AM
Recently picked up a used set of 3-screw roundtop SU's that I plan to restore as a back-up set and last night when I was disassembling them, I noticed the needles are engraved as "369".  The previous owner said that the carbs were from a '72 SCCA racer, so I'm guessing they're richer needles...

Help me understand my HVLP gun

Body and Paint Yesterday, 05:49 AM
Hi, I'm having trouble getting the hang of setting up my HVLP gun.  I sprayed some primer this weekend and wasn't happy with the results.  I'm hoping someone here can help me out a little.  I've watched to usual youtube videos and understand the controls, but because I'm inexperien...

Should my 240Z have a fan shroud?

Help Me !! 06 May 2012
I have a completely orignal 1972 240z that I am trying to get back on the road, (over all freshen up under way). It does not have a fan shroud. I have seen several of you guys that DO have fan shrouds. Did my car come with one and possibly lost it somewhere along the way? Do I need one? Th...
