    ."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."

The New Cars

Open Chit Chat Today, 05:53 PM
While my Z is in the shop, getting some body repairs, the other driver's insurance is providing me with a rental. Well, sort of providing; I have to pay $17 a day insurance, which adds up.Anyway, not really impressed. It's a 2015 Chevy Malibu. I opened the hood but couldn't tell if it was a 2.0 o...

1977 280z running rich, troubleshooting help

Engine and Drivetrain 02 Nov 2014
Hey guys (and gals), I'm the new proud owner of a 1977 280z. I don't know a ton about cars, but I'm mechanically handy and I have downloaded and read through the FSM and the FIB for the car. When I first got the car, it had been sitting for a year and wouldn't run at all. After re...

Is 3 In One Motor Oil (Blue Label) Any Good As Damper Oil?

Carburetor Central 28 Mar 2015
Just filled both of my Hitachi refurbished 3 screw SU Carbs with 3 in one  motor oil (Blue and White label). The Temperature here in Panama is 33 degrees Celsius, very hot indeed! The car is running okay, but at first gear sometimes hesitates back and forth. The idle was set to 1000 but does...

Might Have To Sell Track Day Car

Open Discussions 24 Mar 2015
I've been developing this '71 Z for about 5 years.  It is a track day only car that has so many modifications, it will never be a stock car again.  A few weeks ago, I blew my Rebello motor and now I think it may be time to hang it up.  My question is whether or not to sell it as is...

Fabric Hose Colour (Faded, Dyed, Oem?)

Engine and Drivetrain 26 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...

I'm About Done With The %**&ing Efi

Fuel Injection 18 Mar 2015
It's been awhile since I've done anything with the Z due to some bad stuff going on with a family member, but to refresh, I have a 75 280, 79 ZX dizzy with E12-80 module vacuum advance disconnected, Crane coil no ballast, AFM calibrated per Atlantic Z, fuel pressure 36-38 at idle w/o vacuum 32 wi...
