  1. HLS30-07848

    We're talking about the same splice. The one done at an angle. I also believe that valance was used 74-76. Chuck
  2. Looks like a Vega to me too. Chuck
  3. HLS30-07848

    If you look a couple inches or so up the sides of the hatch opening you can see where it was welded. I noticed the filler too. I'm not sure what that's hiding. Chuck Sent from my Moto G Play using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  4. HLS30-07848

    If you look at the pics of the hatch opening you can see where the tail pan was spliced in. Chuck
  5. Does the rotor use an 8mm bolt? I'm pretty sure that my Maxima did. Chuck
  6. Air Cleaner modification

    The PO of my ITS race car modified the base plate to use a couple of aluminum drinking cups as a set of long air horns. Chuck
  7. Electrical hack job, no brake lights.

    Wow! That's a mess. I'd start by replacing the harness(es). Or at least pull them out, go through them and re-tape them. Chuck
  8. Series I cars

    They went from none to vertical to horizontal. Chuck
  9. Series I cars

    Is the gas door and latch on the list? Chuck Sent from my Moto G Play using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  10. With bolts on the top row it makes installing the intake very easy. The big washers on the lower holes hold the intake in place while the bolts are installed. If there were studs everywhere it might be hard to slide the intake in place. I should know soon since I'm disassembling an L24 with two studs in the top row. Chuck
  11. Original light bulbs

    I figured that the Koito bulbs were OEM. I have a lot of Toshiba single-element bulbs so I thought that they may also be OEM. Chuck
  12. Isn't the inside of the left tie rod a reverse thread? I've used the pickle fork, air pickle fork and hammers for years. They eventually work but sometimes it isn't fast or easy. I spent an almost an hour trying to separate a tie rod end on my AAR. I even brought out the BFH but had no luck. I bought the kit below from Harbor Freight and in less than a minute I had it off! It was quick and effortless. https://www.harborfreight.com/automotive-motorcycle/steering/5-piece-front-end-service-tool-set-62789.html Chuck
  13. Original light bulbs

    Does anyone know what brand of bulbs we're used in the 240Z? I sorted through min and found several Koito and Toshiba bulbs. Chuck Sent from my Moto G Play using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  14. Just set them cold and be done with it. No need to go back and do it hot. Chuck
  15. 280Z 5 speed has landed

    IIRC the pressure plate has to match with the throwout bearing collar. So you'll want to use all 280Z stuff or all 240Z stuff. Chuck
