  1. Think that may be Bob Leitzinger's 510......
  2. How does that work....can you explain how you use this device?
  3. Cliff....Yes the 72 intake and balance tube....disconnect manifold water on all my cars. The 73's had a large chamber head....very different from the earlier cars....the only real difference that I can think of.....maybe it gave off more heat. Someone posted somewhere that the fuel pumps were different, but I can't see where that would be a problem.....but something causes these cars to vapor lock.
  4. 3 screw or 4 screw.....no problem with the pre 73 Z's. 3 screw or 4 screw or flat tops are a problem in the 73's. It must be something else peculiar to the 73 cars. I don't have a clue, but all I know is I never had one case of vapor lock in any of the many 70, 71, or 72 Z's I've owned, but had a problem with the only 73 I've ever owned, even though it had 3 screw round tops. How about it.....anyone ever had vapor lock problems with a 70, 71 or 72 Z? Nissan never added insulation to the fuel lines till 73 which makes me think it wasn't a problem till 73.
  5. What puzzles me is that vapor lock only happens on the 73 and 74 Z's. even when you change to round top (early) carbs, you still have a vapor lock problem with the 73 cars. WHY???? I've never had a pre 73 Z give me a bit of problem with vapor lock....there must be a reason.....but my 73 gave me fits in the heat.....until I built a 72 motor for it....then, no more problems....why? Must be something peculiar to the 73 Z's.
  6. Hardway.....I just finished installing Wilwoods on the front of my 73 car. The stainless brake lines are much longer with no effect on performance. It would be nice not to have to open the brake system to swing out the strut to change shocks or springs.....you would still have to remove e brake clip and outer halfshaft bolts in the rear.
  7. Reminds me of the "Bird Dog Bra"....."it made Pointers out of Setters"!
  8. Steve....I hope you got a chance to meet Woody, Sam Neave and Greg Ira. Sam builds all the engines for the number 46 car plus Greg's, Woody's 240 and 280 race car. Those guys are a trip....totally nuts! I almost booked for the Mitty, but too much else happening.....post more pics if you can. Guy Sounds a little bit like Italy? Sam built motor. IMG_0824.MOV
  9. I just installed new Tokicos in my 73 47,000 original mile Z. When you pushed down on each corner, the car was soft and bouncy. I figured they must be the original blown shocks. When I removed the struts, I was surprised that they were loaded with KYB's .......just my personal opinion that the Tokicos are a better shock for our Z cars.....you'll live with your decision for the life of your car....Tokicos ain't that much more.
  10. Bruce or Steve at Ztherapy should be able to direct you to where you can get that info.
  11. Would love to see some pics......He'll win too! Gorgeous car.
  12. If you get a chance Steve, stop by and take a look at my good friend Woody Staub's number 22 car. He'll probably be with Greg Ira too. Guy
  13. Jeff....I remember back in the 70's there was a problem with the worm gear ( the gear that slides onto the crank nose and meshes with the teeth on the distributor sprocket) under harsh racing conditions. The two it seems were incompatible and caused wear under race conditions. The solution was a bronze worm gear that you could get from Nissan (NLA). I bought them for most of my engines before they became NLA. Seems to me that someone was making them again.....try googling them or maybe eBay. If not, I would replace all 3 items .....oil pump, worm gear and sprocket and go at it again.
  14. So sorry to hear about Deanna.....we lost Cheyenne 9 years ago....I miss her still.....we bought Millie...another worthless flea bag that we are totally in love with....a shame dogs have such a short life span....I feel your pain.
