Electrical 07 Oct 2015
So you're on the road at night cruisin' in your Z. Slowly you notice that your headlights are getting dimmer and dimmer. You check your ammeter or voltmeter and see that your system is in discharge mode. Oh crap. Belt fall off? I hope so. Nope, still there and tight. oh oh oreo... Well you got th...

Good clutch for aluminium flywheel?

Engine and Drivetrain 07 Oct 2015
I have a Tilton flywheel I want to use on my 240.  Street use only and I don't beat the 43 year old car.  Stock or maybe a Centerforce II?   Thanks for any replies. Cliff

Trip Down the "Mother Road" Route 66

Open S30 Z Discussions 11 Oct 2015
This past weekend, a group of friends who are car enthusiasts took a short Fall Cruise down a stretch of Historic Route 66 between Dwight and Pontiac, IL.  It was a gorgeous, sunny and blue sky October day.  We had 10 people in 9 cars.  I was the sole Z, and sole import for that ma...

Mystery SU Needles -- "369"

SU Carb Technical Articles 06 Oct 2015
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...

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...

Beck Arnley Vs. Posi Quiet Plus That Voice In Your Head

Wheels, Tires and Brakes 29 Mar 2015
I've had this nagging thought that I should check the wear on my front brake pads but haven't done it.  Recently I started hearing a mild crunchy noise while braking, especially at low speed.  I tried braking with just the parking brake and no noise so took a wheel off.  And decide...

A Meeting with the Original Owner of #8011

Open S30 Z Discussions 08 Oct 2015
As car enthusiasts we are not merely the owners of 4-wheeled machines but caretakers of classic and interesting automobiles.  Anytime we acquire a used but “new to me“ vehicle we always want to know its history, where has it been, has it been treated well, what made the owner buy this car ov...

Beware Mr. Gasket fuel filters

Open S30 Z Discussions Yesterday, 08:57 AM
Bought this little gem because I thought the idea was good to see when things got dirty. It left me stranded on the road at 11pm on the way to work. Had to leave my Z in a church parking lot until towed to a buddies house.  I had previous issues with my engine acting like it ran out of fuel,...

My winter project: L28 swap into my 240z

Engine and Drivetrain Yesterday, 09:32 AM
Just thought I'd start a thread on my upcoming winter project.  I got my 240z in May of last year. The car was nicely restored in 2010. I've done a few things to it in the time that I've had it including, wheels/tires, headlight covers, lowered it, ST sway bar kit, pertonix ignition and the...

1973 Rebuild

Open S30 Z Discussions 23 May 2015
Hi all, I've just received my 1973 240z! The previous owner towed it out from MO for me along with piles and piles of parts. We went over it together and it's in better shape than I expected (it was a Craigslist transaction over the phone between MO and NJ). I'm sure that I'll start finding nasty...
