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 !! Yesterday, 05:16 PM
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 Today, 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...

Wood gear shift knob

Open S30 Z Discussions Today, 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...

New 240z owner with Cracked Dash In need of advice

Open S30 Z Discussions Yesterday, 05:26 PM
Hi   I recently bought a wonderful '71 in excellent condition.  The odometer reads 59,000 miles which I believe to be correct.  I have owned a '73 as a teenager and later, I bought a '72.  They all had their 240z issues but I think I got one I can live with.    The o...

VIN Search

Open Chit Chat 20 Nov 2015
I only saw a post from 2005 about this so forgive me if I should be posting elsewhere - I have two VIN numbers for cars I'm purchasing - But I thought the one car was a '72 though the current owner is telling me that it's a '76.  Can anyone confirm the model and year by these VIN's? HLS30-04...

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...
