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...

Wood gear shift knob

Open S30 Z Discussions Yesterday, 10:01 AM
I have owned a '72 and a '73.  Both had wood gearshift knobs.  I have seen factory '71s and '72's that didn't and I have seen them that did. I don't think I have ever seen a '73 without a wood knob. Mine does not have a wood gear shift knob but I believe it is factory.  Does...

Bead blasted to bare metal then primed with Duplicolor 500 degree engine block primer. Two light coats followed by a medium coat. This morning I go to pu...

Pass/flash button on indicator stalk

Open S30 Z Discussions Today, 08:39 AM
I've just noticed that my 72 Z hasn't got a button on the end of the indicator/turn signal stalk to flash the headlamps, my old UK car had one and so did all my friends cars over here, my question is should it have one or didn't the USA cars have this feature? Thanks in advance :-)

I open myself for you criticism!

Open S30 Z Discussions 13 Oct 2013
Hi all! I have been underground for a while working on my '76 280z. I decided to hold off posting until I had something worth showing. My 280z was a bit of a whore in a prom dress. As I disassembled it and mounted it in the rotisserie it became obvious that I had a bit of a basket case...

No gas coming out of the tank!

Help Me !! 25 Nov 2015
Hey guys, I'm officially stumped and could use some suggestions.   I repainted the tank a couple weekends ago, put everything back together, and can't get any fuel to flow from the outlet.  I put a minimum of 5 gallons in there, so it's not low.  There's nothing physically blocking...

Engine and Drivetrain Yesterday, 10:14 AM
So today for the ump-teen'th time, I find myself putting a 5 speed on a L6 block on the shop floor. Usually goes pretty smooth. I use an old trans input shaft as a clutch disk alignment tool, really helps to get the splines lined up perfect. I hate those plastic POS things that come with clutch k...
