Jag SU's on 240z - linkage issues

Carburetor Central 05 Oct 2015
Hi all,  its been a while since I've been on. The 240 is getting welded up, and so I've put stuff on the back burner for a while, but it will be back soon, so I am working on getting the engine ready to install. I've bought the "big" SU from a XKE I think. They bolt right up, but I dont know...

Open S30 Z Discussions 04 Sep 2015
Hello all, I'm looking for some input from some of you who may own original JDM headlight covers. I have decided to reproduce them as I think there would be a fair amount of interest in a set of quality reproductions that are similar to the originals.   What I need from you, I don't have a s...

Open S30 Z Discussions Today, 07:00 AM
Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has a source for new fuel pump spacers. Seems like Nissan, Fel-Pro, and Beck-Arnley are all out-of-stock and discontinued. Quick google didn't find anything.   Trying to source this out for a co-worker. Hoping to light a fire under his arse to get his 260Z...

Fuel Injection 27 Jan 2015
my 78 280 reads very low vacuum (9-10 at idle) when tested at a manifold nipple at the back near the brake booster, but it picks way up to the middle of the green zone on my gauge when i rev the engine above 2K. i get almost zero vacuum at the ported nipples on the bottom of the throttle bod...

Changing gauge Bulbs

Electrical Yesterday, 07:44 PM
I had two bulbs go out recently, so it's time for me to change out all the bulbs-  they seem to fail in small groups.  It sounds easy enough- you pull out the socket then push & turn the bulb to get it out.   But when I push the bulb in, you still can't turn it, because there a...

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...

Going Coilovers

Suspension and Steering 26 May 2015
Alright so I've decided after taking someone elses Z for a spin this past weekend (and being thrilled with the ride quality) that I want to go coilovers. The kicker here is that I do not have the know-how or ability to section the struts or weld so I'm looking for something that I can bolt in dir...

Tranmission gear noise magically solved

Engine and Drivetrain Yesterday, 06:00 AM
Over the past two-three years my 82-83 ZX trans in my 73, rebuilt about 10 years ago with new bearings and syncros, has been making more and more gear whine noise. Not all the time, but specifically in 3rd and 5th. Most noticable on the highway. In forth it's mostly not there, but move to 3rd or...
