'72 240Z Rebuild

Open S30 Z Discussions 06 Feb 2015
I'm about to tear this motor out and then apart.  It's kind of hard to do because it runs pretty good today but I can't trust a 43 year old motor's stamina, so here I go.   I think updating this thread with the progression of the build will save my butt from mistakes with the help of th...

Engine Removal Checklist

Engine and Drivetrain Today, 09:28 AM
Attached is the checklist I made for pulling the engine / transmission from my 1972 240Z. It takes you up to removing the engine mount and transmission crossmember bolts.  I used the Removal Note column for bolt / nut size (might as well replace them as long as they are out), part bag names,...

How I refinished the horns in my '73 240Z

Tech Pubs and How-To Articles 18 Jul 2005

A few quick questions? Glove box light and I have a screw...

Interior Yesterday, 10:52 AM
Howdy, This is for my Series 1 240z   First the hard question! Just noticed that my light switch for my glove box is hanging in the box! Looks like the spot weld for the bracket has broken. Looks like to fix it right, I would need to pull the dash and spot weld back on. Not thinking of doing...

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...

Dimmable LEDs?

Electrical 05 Oct 2015
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...

Intake pop/flap sound

Help Me !! 30 Sep 2015
https://vimeo.com/141010856 Anyone have any input on this sound. I'm not sure if it's the afm flap, or if it has to do with running lean/rich. It's been idling weird. We've replaced the spark plugs, wires, cap, the injectors are all working (I felt the vibration). Any input greatly appreciat...

Stupid question on fuel pressure regulator

Fuel Injection Yesterday, 09:28 AM
Does the direction of flow through the regulator matter? I ask because I have a aftermarket fuel rail (bar stock style) with an aeromotive FPR and I am going to replace the fuel lines as well as put the stock regulator back (I'm hunting for a leak). Of course, I'll have to mount it somewhere sinc...
