  1. Rust in pinch welds

    Whoo I was hoping to not have to go that far. Nice work on yours. Guess I start cutting. I was hoping I was at the end of the cutting and could start patching.
  2. Rust in pinch welds

    Dang, sorry for multiple posts. Can't figure out how to delete one. Man I am helpless
  3. Rust in pinch welds

    Hoping someone can provide some insight. I am beginning to do major rust repair on the front frame rails and strut towers on my 240z. What I am noticing as I am stripping paint is some surface rust showing creeping around the weld flanges. An I able to sand blast the spot weld flanges and seal it up, or is it going to continue to rust through? Basically does this look like I need to keep cutting out strut tower and just pull off the frame rail completely?

  5. Help With Cam Chain Timing

    Yeah something is not right with my setting then - if I look at the excel spreadsheet siteunseen link above (thank you siteunseen) then the s130 distributor should be giving me 17 degrees of advance with the mechanical advance alone. so at 15 I should be at 32. This definitely helps me focus my problem solving. I am still wondering why the chain looks like it is one tooth off, maybe I am missing something. If I look at all manuals and pictures on the web, the outer chain link is centered on the timing marks on the sprocket, not the inner. Mine is centered on the inner. Does it matter? I would have to take my timing cover off to confirm, but if the crank is centered on the outer and the cam sprocket is centered on the inner, it would put cam timing off 9 degrees no? From the web: Notice timing marks are centered on the "outer" chain link. Mine:
  6. Help With Cam Chain Timing

    Yeah I have the 280zx distributor. Runs pretty good, sometimes it breaks up under Accel. Do you have the vaccum advance hooked up? Mine runs like $^!# with it hooked up. I'm running only mechanical advance, 15 Deg at idle, and I only get like 23 degrees max, trying to get up to like 34 max but not sure how
  7. Help With Cam Chain Timing

    Its amazing how dirty everything looks in my pictures - kind of depressing. I sware it doesn't look that dirty in person.
  8. I was going to set valve lash on my new to me 240Z and decided to check cam chain timing. From everything I have been able to find in terms of service manuals it seems like the chain is off a tooth? Can someone confirm or deny my suspicion? Shouldn't the #1 mark coincide with the center of an "outer" chain link? Also, the horizontal mark is to the right of the sprocket groove, wouldn't this be indicative of being one tooth advanced? Any help is greatly appreciated. Imgur Album Here Also, the silver chain link is way off of where it should be, per the manual the silver chain link should line up with the #1 mark on the cam sprocket. It is like 100-some-odd degrees off which leads me to believe someone has been in here. I am finding that I have to use up almost all of the distributors adjust-ability to reach the appropriate timing advance, maybe these are related?
  9. 240z Radio Fuse Holder

    Hello, My original radio is missing the guts to the inline fuse holder (blue wire). Does anyone know where I can get all of the guts for the fuse holder? This would include the fuse as well as the coil noise suppressor. Much appreciated.
  10. I got a 73 240z and it has or style fiberglass fenders. I can't find any information on them. Anyone know anything about these or what they might be worth?
