Was attempting to remove the gland nut from a front strut and after a an hour of every trick I have I just forced it with 6' leverage. A little less then 1/3rd of the threads have peeled back and the gland nut screws down and back up very well.

Most effective change or modification - fun list ?

Open S30 Z Discussions Today, 12:19 PM
It's been a few years now since I've taken ownership of my '70 Datsun Z. I can't tell you how much a gear ratio change has improved the car. I went from around a stock 3:4 to 4:10 rear gears . The car is now ''awake'' and lives right in the best powerband/rpm situation. I have a 5 speed from arou...

E88 head in a Series 1 car?

Open S30 Z Discussions 31 Jul 2015
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

Introductions and Rides 15 Jan 2013

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...

Dash Repair Process/Pictures

Interior 15 Nov 2006
The dashboard in my car had some serious cracks along the top but I couldn't pull the trigger to send it off for rework because of the cost. I wanted to try to repair it somehow though, I had to try something! Here's a few pictures of the cracks. Because of the limit on pictures i...

Mystery clunk

Suspension and Steering 27 Oct 2012
Just fixed another mystery clunk. My 72 (green) just developed the dreaded clunk. No problem, I've got a R/T mount so it's got to be the half shaft u joints. I pulled 'em off and had them replaced. Took her for a drive looking for a nice quiet ride......not. The clunk was still there....

Best Octane For E31 Head

Open S30 Z Discussions 18 May 2014
Hey Guys, I just bought my first Z this month and drove it 500 miles home. Runs great. I'm new to the 240Z though and don't know a ton about the engines. Mine is a series 1 with the original E31 head. I know this one is a higher compression head. What is the best octane to run o...

Head Gasket Oil Leak

Engine and Drivetrain Today, 08:04 AM
My car has developed an oil leak between the block and head directly above the oil filter. I'm guessing it's coming from the cam shaft oil supply galley/line. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it. I'm going to re-torque the head bolts but other then that I'm probably headed for...

To Dream the Impossible Dream (Redwing's Z cars)

Open S30 Z Discussions 30 Jun 2015
Hi everyone,   Jai (Redwing) is a bit timid about protocols, even though we're a pretty informal bunch.  So I'm taking the liberty of explaining her situation.  She needs a bit of special help from the Z community, starting with a frank assessment of her situation and the formulati...
