  1. Steering Rack Disassembly and Refurb

    One more.... what is the purpose of the small plastic plug under the driver side bushing? White in your picture here. My concern is, I plan to powder coat this part...
  2. Steering Rack Disassembly and Refurb

    What did you end up doing with these grease ports and bolts?
  3. 1976 280Z Restoration Project

    Surprisingly, the lower pinion bearing came out without a fight. It was not pressed completely to the bottom so I was able to lift it out with a bolt head!
  4. 1976 280Z Restoration Project

    And got the steering rack apart. Now to clean the sucker!

    Finally finished up the ignition unit. Looks nice and neat now!
  6. I hate Chinese "Metal"

    East coast air.....
  7. Car worth? How much would you pay?

    Some people would pay a lot for a clean shell to start with. Pay less for a more deteriorated shell and spend more later fixing it... It's up to you as to where you want to spend the money. The total cost of a restoration these days is not cheap, regardless of the starting shell price. If you are in for the long run, then plan on budgeting about $30,000 US or $45,000 Cdn for a proper restoration. In the end what you paid for the shell falls in there somewhere... I paid $100 for a shell. Was it worth more? Probably! But I had to replace a lot of metal and rebuild a lot of the car myself. I would have rather started with a solid shell and paid $6000 versus spend the same amount of money on parts and repairs and take an additional two years. In the end, I will be in for about $45,000. The shell cost doesn't really matter anymore. From the looks of this unit, it is worth about $6,000 to $8,000 depending on condition of all the parts and completeness of the parts/interior. That's just my opinion.
  8. Help removing front valnace

    Looks like a ton of underbody coating on the mid to side sections. The side valances look like they have been siliconed onto the fenders. No easy way to pull that apart... have fun!
  9. Car worth? How much would you pay?

    This one looks pretty clean actually. If it's all there and complete, it's not too bad. Looks solid... how much it's worth is up to you...!
  10. disconnecting wires to sending unit

    That’s a good start. When the unit is out, soak the entire thing in CLR
  11. What power window unit did you go with or was it a kit with the locks to provide the “roll up and lock” feature on the fob?
  12. disconnecting wires to sending unit

    Pulls straight out... Might be corroded together.
  13. Maybe update your PDF file@eurodat to include the instructions for swapping coils and removing the ballast wiring.
  14. Transistor Module swap *PLS HELP*

    My module just came in yesterday. I will be finishing the install soon. I have to work this weekend...

    The block will be black. That’s part of the issue.
