    alternator rebuilding-78 280Z

    I am just planning ahead on the project and just thought it would be nice to have the factory original unit still in place. I am an assistant manager at a nation wide 5,000 plus store company and we do offer 1 year warranty remans, lifetime warranty remans, as well as new units on some applications. For the obvious reasons a new unit is not offered for the Z, but a lifetime reman is available. We changed suppliers for our reman electrical components about 2 years ago due to a high rate of failures. The new supplier has been much better quality but details are very vague about what actually gets replaced. Just thought it might be an interesting challenge to attempt but have no experience in rebuilding alternators. The commutator looks real nice, brushes still intact, bearings still free, but unit was covered in grime and the pulley pretty rusty. The last time this car was running according to the seller, as well as the inspection tag still on the window was 1996. 20 years of use and 20 years of sitting. Neither one a good option. Keep the helpful tips coming and I will continue to do some more research. Thanks again, John-Lugoff, SC. Thankful to the LORD for sparing us from the main fury of the hurricane and praying to the LORD for those who lost so much due to the storm.

    Replacement Inner Rocker Panels

    Sorry for the extremely late response. Unfortunately I am unable to do high volume production. I can do seat brackets, but they are really time consuming to make as I dont have much time to spend on making things for others anymore due to my work keeping me busy and the time I need to put into my own cars. But there are times when I can put time into making stuff for others. Well all id like to update this and inform everyone that Charlie at Zedd Findings called me up and talked to me about he wanting to start making the inner rockers. I told him I have no issues with it as I think competition is healthy to have in any business. Honestly he didnt even have to talk to me about it, I wouldnt had cared if he made them with out speaking to me, not like I have a patent on this, but its nice to know he wanted to talk to me about it first. I told him that I dont have time to keep up with the requests I get in providing these panels, thus the reason he wanted to start selling. I am currently making a set for him as he wanted it to use as a prototype. I think be better to have the actual Factory panel to mimic off of but I guess he doesnt have any on hand. I dont know when he will be getting his inner rockers ready for production, I dont know how he will be making them and what he will be charging, but I will keep this updated for when that happens or you can just get in contact with him or regularly check his site. Ive already told some people about him, so hopefully he is motivated to get this going. Id love to keep this up and even making other products like talked about in this thread, but still dont have enough of my own time to give up on this. Hopefully in the future ill be back at it and be able to provide for all that wants. Well anyways, stay tuned!! P.S. sad news for my project 240Z is it hasnt gotten any attention since I left off in my build thread, for those wondering. I actually have some surprising news about it, some may think im crazy....but wont say it, so you will have to stay tuned!! Edit: I should add that the best way to contact me is at bpeck@prospect-d.com if you call me and I dont pick up my phone, then leave a message. I hardly answer the phone when its out of state callers. You can check out my site as stated in my email.
  11. Im gonna take the risk and pull that distributor out just to verify the state of the gasket seals and o ring. I hope the car engine cranks when i insert it back.

    front suspension and tire clearance problem

    Excellent. Glad it was that simple. Don't forget about an alignment before you call it "done".
  13. Looking for a triple Mikuni 44pph set up. Thanks!
  14. Either it's an actual race car that was entered and ran in a sanctioned event or it isn't (no log book). If the latter is the case then it means it isn't a vintage race car and my comment about the two in the back (BRE 510 and BSR 240/280/GT2) being the only real vintage race car is correct.

    2+2 gets some SEMA love

    Just saw a post of Facebook today that claims it burned to the ground.
  24. It seemed like a throwaway joke. Shortly after the Tokyo Motor Show last year, where Toyota unveiled only the third new Century design in 50 years, the company’s car-nut CEO Akio Toyoda was interviewed on a Japanese talk show called … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
