240Z Resto - 01/1970 Car

Open S30 Z Discussions 01 Jun 2015
So, this might be a good time to start posting photos of what I've been doing for the passed couple of months. Organizing, labelling, ordering, cleaning, etc.   Work seems like it's been slow, but I was left with kind of a huge mess when I started this resto. Things were bagged accordingly f...

Project Crush

Open S30 Z Discussions 16 Jul 2015
I thought I'd make my own thread as I seem to make a new one every week or so for this weeks issues. Long story short if you haven't been following, or can't keep up. I purchased a 240z south of the border (yup I'm in Canada), last spring. Over the last year and a half I've managed to bring it ba...

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...

E88 head in a Series 1 car?

Open S30 Z Discussions Yesterday, 04:15 PM
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

Balance driveshaft after installing new U-joints?

Engine and Drivetrain 28 Jul 2015
I was advised to have the driveshaft (propeller shaft) balanced after putting new U-joints, which is scheduled to happen this week.   There's a new vibration last few weeks that may or not have to do with the U-joints.   No vibration previously, and the driveshaft hasn't been altered or...

Side View Mirror Change

Open S30 Z Discussions Yesterday, 08:10 AM
I was thinking of changing out my Side view mirror from the MSA flush mount mirrors that from my experience can only be used when the car isn't moving, which is not ideal. I'm trying to decide between a set of 4" Bullet style mirror or possible a set of Yana Shiki motor cycle Mirrors. I'm leaning...

240z fuel and brake line insulator sets and steering rack...

Garage Businesses 19 Apr 2013
Each 240z fuel and brake line insulator was reproduced in a urethane plastic on a milling machine, which made for a very high quality master insulator. Each insulator is then cast in a two part high quality silicone mold. The insulators are cast in a urethane rubber with a shore hardness...

Slipping Clutch.

Help Me !! 06 Mar 2015
I just took my 71 240Z for its first test run after doing an auto to manual tranny swap. Its a 5 speed out of a 78 Z. The push rod on the slave cylinder was too long, and was keeping me from being able to mount it without engaging the fork a little, so I cut about 1/4" off the rod so I could atta...

'72 240Z Rebuild

Open S30 Z Discussions 06 Feb 2015
I'm about to tear this motor out and then apart.  It's kind of hard to do because it runs pretty good today but I can't trust a 43 year old motor's stamina, so here I go.   I think updating this thread with the progression of the build will save my butt from mistakes with the help of th...

Suspension and Steering 30 Jul 2015
I did not pay attention to which way this part was facing when i tore the car down! It's off a 77, It will go on either way but I want to make sure I get it right. It attatches under and behind the rear diff. Does any body have a name for this part and which way it faces? Thanks in advance.

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...
