Internally Regulated Alternator Trivia - Bootstrap Current?

Electrical 26 Jul 2015
I did the internally regulated alternator upgrade a little while ago, and everything is fine with the exception of one ignorable low priority issue. Such a small issue that I wouldn't consider it a "problem", but more of a "curiosity" and it highlights some (what I think is) interesting alternato...

Mystery clunk

Suspension and Steering 27 Oct 2012
Just fixed another mystery clunk. My 72 (green) just developed the dreaded clunk. No problem, I've got a R/T mount so it's got to be the half shaft u joints. I pulled 'em off and had them replaced. Took her for a drive looking for a nice quiet ride......not. The clunk was still there....

Cleaning and restoring guage faces

Interior 01 Oct 2013
Without replacing the gauge faces, how do you clean the faces, especially the numbers on the speedometer and tachometer, and the odometer wheels so you can see them better with whatever light you get out of the dim bulbs? I have no reference to go by, so does anyone have a picture of what the...

Head Gasket Oil Leak

Engine and Drivetrain Today, 08:04 AM
My car has developed an oil leak between the block and head directly above the oil filter. I'm guessing it's coming from the cam shaft oil supply galley/line. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it. I'm going to re-torque the head bolts but other then that I'm probably headed for...

E88 head in a Series 1 car?

Open S30 Z Discussions 31 Jul 2015
My father just bought a Series 1 automatic. It has an E88 head in it vs the E31 which I suppose should be there. The block is original to the car. Does anyone have an idea why someone would swap an E88 in for an E31?  I ask, as I can pick up a local E31.   Thanks!   Loudoun

L24 Rebuild -Again!

Engine and Drivetrain 12 Feb 2015
Yes this is the second time around for the little L.  And boy I have learned a lot and probably forgot a lot too! First time around the machinist/builder did most of the work. He dissembled and assembled the block and head and I put the two together. I degreed the cam and everything else to...

'73 white european lady

Open S30 Z Discussions Yesterday, 02:38 AM
So I finally managed to find a 240z which I always desired. It will take a lot of time to make her beautiful again but I am sure the time spent on restoration will be definitely worth it. Not my first car which will be rebuilt (already completed Miata NA version) so I kind of know what amount of...
