280Z 5 speed has landed

Recommended Posts

After months of patiently waiting on logistics, I was able to trade my old MSA Type 1 air dam for 5 speed from a 280Z.  I came out of a running car, and the input shaft seems to spin freely without much play. It is dirty and I fully intend to get it rebuilt prior to installation.  I just wanted to check.  Having put a new clutch and pressure plate and throwout bearing and clutch collar in my last car, can I reuse those?  You match all the clutch hardware with the clutch if I recall. It has been a while since I did the research on this.  I was planning on using my 240Z 4 speed collar fork and everything else... I will dig around in the 5 speed swap section to see if this is right.  But I am psyched. I will finally be able to drive with the flow of traffic on the freeway without turning 4500 rpm.

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.

yup that is what I thought. I was thinking I could use all my current 240Z stuff as it is all less than 4000 miles old.
