L24 won't run properly (video). What can cause this?

Engine and Drivetrain 24 May 2015
When the problems started, the car had a 280Z distributor with a GM HEI ignition module. The first thing we did was to change the plug wires, but that did not help at all. We tried changing plugs, but that didn't help either. The problems started out with the car running OK at idle, but started s...

Shifter Extender

Interior Yesterday, 01:29 PM
i get emails almost daily advertizing all kinds of extenders... how do they know anyway??   one thing to think about though - unless you raise the fulcrum point (where the bushings go in the ears on the tranny) your throw will get considerably longer. you can mock it up with a simple piece o...

Question about the oil pressure gauges

Electrical 24 May 2015
I have the found the gauges to be just short of idiot lights. The one on my 73 was reading very low (close to zero) so I piped a gauge in at the oil port on the side of the engine 30 psi at idle and almost 60 when revved up. Is your add on pressure gauge connected to the oil sending unit port? Z...

Can you get SPDT center-off relays?

Electrical 22 May 2015
Great idea. Additional lighting would be a good use for the previously unused fuse.   The printing and documentation would be wrong, but at least the use of the fuse would be appropriate!

A Different Headlight Relay Upgrade - 4 Relays

Electrical Yesterday, 06:52 PM
Thanks for the glowing review.   I've got a couple other sketches of different alternatives, each of differing levels of complexity and advantages/disadvantages. For example, a compromise on the 4-relay version above is one that uses two relays instead of f...

Can you get SPDT center-off relays?

Electrical 22 May 2015
Well, since there really is no "plug-and-play"  actuality for the  '78, you are modifying the stock wiring nonetheless, so you may as well do it right or in an improved way.   OTOH- if you are adding some lamps, like fog lamps or driving lamps, that second (unused) fuse would come...

Can you get SPDT center-off relays?

Electrical 22 May 2015
Problem is that as soon as you start making changes like that, it's no longer plug-n-play. It's just unfortunately one of the down-sides of the traditional approach. It's part of the price you pay for the plug-n-play ease of use compromise.   You could (and I would recommend) that...

Question about the oil pressure gauges

Electrical 24 May 2015
I'm curious because I've noticed a small but significant increase in the readings after my overhaul. I'd previously installed a mechanical gauge and found variations under assorted operating conditions that paralleled the OEM gauge.    My main and rod bearings were worn down t...

Carburetor Central Yesterday, 10:05 PM
You live my Walter Mitty dreams. I have dual downdraft Webers installed by a previous owner and while it drives fine, I yen to return the car back to the original SUs. Strangely, I have no similar desire to re-install the air pump.   BTW during my recent overhaul, I pulled the engine wi...

Racing Today, 04:00 AM
It's good to see you got out of that one without much in the way of injuries. Was there enough left over after the fire for a post mortem?
