  1. Take a look at the bar they sent you. if its flat, it's wrong. If its curved, it will work. If you car originally had a straight bar, (its not clear what year your chassis is) the diff is in a forward position that would make either of the curved bars hard to use. I'll dig a set of the three bars out of a snow bank and take a picture for comparison.
  2. Part of the problem/confusion here is that there are two different R180 Z M-bars. The early ones, until they moved the diff back ro straighten up the half shafts, (72's?) were FLAT, and cannot be used with an R200. The ones with the diff moved in the rearward position are curved and CAN be used with an R200. Yes you have to open up the holes for the 12mm R200 holes. I've done it, its not conjecture.
  3. Well, I'm trying again this morning. I opened my ipad this morning, started Chrome, then opened CZCC as always. Clicked Sign In, entered username/pwd, no joy. Still the not allowed to view this stream. ok, try Safari, that worked yesterday. Now I'm locked out of that as well. Hummmph. I'm not giving up. Go to the PC that I have been able to get with, start Chrome, and log in successfully. Got asked the security question, no problem. I then disabled the new security question in Account Security. Log out, log in, all is fine. No security question. Log out and Close Chrome. Go back to the ipad. Attempt to get in with Chrome. It works! Magic! No security question, I can get in no problem. That's how I'm typing this now. Guess what I'm not going to use from now on!
  4. Ok this is just getting silly. Now I have been prevented from getting in on my ipad using Chrome. I last got in from my PC, on Chrome there. CLosed the window. Opened my ipad, opened chrome, went to my usual link, and got a message about not having permission to view this stream. I'm logged out. TRy to log in several times. Same "can't view this stream." Error. Tried Safari on my ipad, same thing. Well actually after trying for the 5th time, I'm magically allowed in! What is going on? Went back and tried Chrome on the ipad, still can't get in. Tried several times, no love. Closed the Safari window as well. I've had just about enough of this improvements to security stuff. I'll try again tomorrow when I'm not quite so grumpy
  5. I'm on my PC now. Seems to be working fine. Security question stuff got me through. Thanks Mike, I think we are golden for now
  6. I actually use Chrome on the ipad. I was able to login to the account security with my password the last time I tried it. I changed the security questions and answers. I'll go try logging in to the account from the other machines again and see what happens
  7. I also just went to the Account security section of my profile, and it asks me for the account pwd, which I entered correctly, and it too fails and says I can't try again for 5 minutes. Fun huh?
  8. I having trouble logging into CZCC from other devices now (PC and iphone) than my usual ipad. It asks for the security question, which I answer correctly, but it is fails to accept it, try again, same thing, then it says I can't try again until such and such a time. Clearly I'm logged in nicely on this device (ipad). No obvious way to get it to ask me one of the other questions I've answered. Is this an issue or is it me?
  9. I tried. No Sale.
  10. I may have a buyer for you. PM or z240@shaw.ca. Will let you know in the next few hours one way or the other. Appreciate it.
  11. More coil hints for the day. Any oil filled coil should be mounted vertically, not horizontally like the 240 coils. Read the instructions. If they need to be vertical, it will be stated as such. The MSD instructions have this to say for the 8200 series street performance coils. "The Blaster Coil is designed to mount in most factory canister coil mounts. MSD also offers a Chrome Coil Bracket, PN 8213. It is recommended to mount the PN 8202, PN 82023 and 8223 coils in an upright position. The High Vibration Coil, PN 8222, can be mounted in any position due to its epoxy potting compound. " Putting them sideways likely exposes more of the windings out of the oil bath than when its vertical, making accelerated overheating deterioration an issue. This is a gues, but makes sense to me.
  12. Freakin' Awesome!
  13. Gav, were you referring to an oil cap trade for a valve cover? Let me know, I have OIL and Elephant caps.
  14. An elephant never forgets to put his elephant oil cap back on. Simple logic. Dare I say he would also keep a spare in the _ _ _ _ _ ?? I, on the other hand can't even remember where I put my cap stash. Surely I have a few pachyderm themed ones in the pile somewhere if someone decides they need one bad enough, let me know.
  15. It has more to do with your tolerance with dealing with issues as they arise. They will arise it's only a matter of time. 40 year old cars just have more issues to deal with. Factor in the declining quality of rebuilt parts, like hydraulics, electrics, etc. If you can never be late for work, or travel with partners who are not as enthusiastic as you are about the joy of an old car, then, well, you know the answer to your question.
