    Drove my 71 daily for 20 years. <br /><br />
    The current 72 is a fair weather driver with minimal updates to improve the enjoyment. <br />
    In 2017 added a R200 with a M-factory LSD and an 83 close ratio 5 speed.<br />
    Also added a Full Z-story header and exhaust in July 2017.

  1. Rear brake conversion

    I am in total agreement. These cars perform well when stock and are in great condition. A brake conversion cost you time and money for so little extra performance. If you want to, because you can, to a well established maker and follow proven procedures. Wilwood makes new systems that work well. Best of luck Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  2. Choke cable help

    That the way to do it. However you shouldn't need full choke to start it when cold.
  3. Here is my version Made by Hella. I didn't like seeing it in the engine bay and didn't want to route everything to the glove box. Most people don't find/see it there. It powers headlights high and low, cooling fans., and drivinig lights Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile

  8. Engine time

    So I am thinking that you are putting water into the combustion chamber it is getting burned. So possible a small leak and only under pressure when cooling system is hot. Two things to try see if your local parts store has radiator pressure tester and check it while hot to see if it loses pressure Or Pull the thermostat and radiator cap and run it when there is no pressure on the cooling system.

  9. Engine time

    Can someone help me understand what the issue is here. Spent sometime reading back through this. Isn't white exhaust (sounds pretty heavy) caused by water in the combustion chamber???? If so I would think that if enough water is in the combustion chamber there would be other odd noises too? Possible crack in the head or block that introduces water once pressure builds in the cooling system? Thoughts?? Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  10. Boy I know this feeling. It was my fuel filter. First I could see a small amount on the bottom of the filter. Ran fine on a new filter so I cut the old open and. Could easily see the brown crud. Now I carry a spare. When you let the pressure off the crud falls to the bottom. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile

  13. door window nylon guide

    I would not recommend that. I have alway used white lithium. You can get it in tube or spray. I prefer the tube if you can reach where it needs to go. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  14. Sounds good. I am getting ready to remove my Zstory header to replace with the Race version so I will take some extra photos and reroute the wire. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  15. You know I think that's what's what the hardware guy told me. He could tell by looking at it and had no problem finding an adapter Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
