E88 head in a Series 1 car?

Open S30 Z Discussions Yesterday, 04:15 PM
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...

Separating SU intake manifolds

Carburetor Central Today, 10:49 AM
I've been trying to remove the coolant line between the intake manifolds with no success. There are nuts on both sides but they won't loosen. I've used PBblaster many times and have used heat several times. Anybody managed to get these apart? Any chance they are reverse threaded? I'm also havi...

'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...

240Z Resto - 01/1970 Car

Open S30 Z Discussions 01 Jun 2015
So, this might be a good time to start posting photos of what I've been doing for the passed couple of months. Organizing, labelling, ordering, cleaning, etc.   Work seems like it's been slow, but I was left with kind of a huge mess when I started this resto. Things were bagged accordingly f...

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...

Balance driveshaft after installing new U-joints?

Engine and Drivetrain 28 Jul 2015
I was advised to have the driveshaft (propeller shaft) balanced after putting new U-joints, which is scheduled to happen this week.   There's a new vibration last few weeks that may or not have to do with the U-joints.   No vibration previously, and the driveshaft hasn't been altered or...

What maintains the fuel line pressure when the care is off?

Fuel Injection 27 Jul 2015
I've got a 76 z with the EFI. When I break open the fuel line just above the fuel filter for example (with the car off of course) there isn't any pressure in the fuel line and when starting it takes a while because I think it has to build up pressure again.  I've rec...

Group wall post by Dave Cerutti

Facebook Group Today, 01:41 AM
Dave Cerutti wrote on Classic Z Car Club's wall: I found something that's not working in my 72. The blue high beam indicator in the gauge. Is that a bulb that can be fairly easily reached and changed, if it turns out to be a bad bulb? (1 like, 9 comments) View the full article
