  1. Trying to replace the u-joints in my ‘72 240z (r180), and the moog 393 replacements aren’t fitting in correctly to allow for the retaining clips to seat fully. Decided to measure the new vs old ujoints and the new ones are ~2 mm bigger Than the ones I took off. Any advice on what else to try? The caps are the right size, the body just seems to wide.

  2. Gas evaporating from Carburator

    My ‘72 that I’ve rebuilt does the same thing, just takes some extra cranks for the bowls to fill back uo Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  3. I’m hoping to rebuild mine too! Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  4. Here are some of my dad's Road America (Elkhart Lake) pictures from the late 70's / early 80's. Parking in the "Z Zone" with the windy city Z club.
  5. Dark brown interior, paint color code?

    My paint guides only go upto '74, but you might be able to talk to PPG and give them the paint #.
  6. fuel mixture or jet adjustment nut settings

    It’s the lack of backpressure with the new exhaust. Stick some steel wool in the exhaust tip and the popping will most likely go away until it falls out. You’ll also loose you HP gain by limiting the free flowing of the exhaust. As many other members have Pointed out, a 40+ year old car is not going to perform like a modern car!!

    Gotta love when they put a rocket booster in one for a stunt & jump it in The Fall Guy. http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_487814-Datsun-240Z-S30-1970.html
  8. Green tape from pertronix ignitor module 1761

    Why did you remove it in the first place? Trying to give yourself more problems? Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  9. Green tape from pertronix ignitor module 1761

    Buy yourself a new pertronix, the directions say to leave the tape on. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  10. Depends how fancy you want to get! I just put a generic one in front of the radiator http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-T9pOrMbIbHA/VBMlDVNrisI/AAAAAAAAA5k/UCBcfak2sOE/s1600/IMG_0495.JPG Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  11. New Coil

    If you're running electronic ignition, either pertronix or a matchbox, eliminate the ballast so you get the full 12 volts at the spark plugs! The. Ballast is only in there to prevent burning out your points Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  12. lots of parts

    Are those parts made of gold? Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  13. fuel mixture or jet adjustment nut settings

    Would a more restrictive muffler provide better back pressure? My msa premium exhaust is very free flowing, although I get no popping with my 2.4L and original cam on my 72 Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  14. fuel mixture or jet adjustment nut settings

    I was always told that you can't just let them sit & measure the 9/16". You need to blow through the float bowl hole (through the needle valve) and make the 9/16" when the valve closes.

    Head & Camshaft! Even MSA says that a hot cam is for racing "Performance camshafts are intended for racetrack". A hotter cam will not idle like a street car, its designed for output at higher RPMs! http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/CTGY/classic12e03
