  1. Past hour
  2. Their gasket is like a compacted bunch of paper towels. They fold over when held outward. If you sprayed them with copper they may be okay but I always use Nissan when available. Their exhaust stud kit that comes with the headers are like the hardware you get with stuff from Lowes. Through away immediately. The nuts spin down the studs with my fingers. They need to be flanged clamping nuts, out of round, conical, pinch nuts, whatever you want to call them but SELF LOCKING for sure. Zcardepot has all the choices and info on his site. I bought mine from Nissan for a 4 cylinder Altima. 8mm with flange lock nuts. If MSA's will spin down so easy they will spin off that easy too eventually. People say use lockwashers, don't do that on a header. The pressure should be equal around the manifold stud.
  3. Today
  4. From the ad copy for the Black Pearl currently on BAT: “This 1978 Datsun 280Z is one of fewer than 1,500 Black Pearl editions produced for the model’s final production year.“
  5. This company "SW Motorsports" is the one I was talking about for the porsche type synchro rings. I think he was moding the porsche rings at one stage, but thats going back a threw years now. I think he use to race skylines at Amaroo park back in the good old days of Mark Skaife and Jim Ricards.
  6. I'm sure it will work on the 77, the rest of the system will not know the difference. My car came with the huge York and under dash hanging evaporator. On your 240 the Sanden compressor would work with the aftermarket evaporator also. Now is the time for air conditioning work before it gets too hot outside to do it!
  7. Wide OpenThrottle Boy was I wrong.
  8. I was able to lower the fuel pressure at the carbs from 3.6 psi to 3.2 yesterday by sticking a small awl in the return line hole and just reamed it a little bit .now I am much happier now that I do not have to worry about fuel over flow or ruining the needle and seats. I read that 3.5 psi was at the top limit so this is much better . so now off to lowes for the fire extinguisher . another little project to keep busy with winter and covid .
  9. This is what I was referring to: https://jdm-car-parts.com/products/datsun-240z-260z-280z-rear-hatch-glass-reproduction-no-international-shipping?variant=13934211694701
  10. Euro version of the 280zx never had a cat or O2 sensor.. We had only dirty cars!

  14. yeah i think a new cap/rotor should get you on the road for now.
  15. Yesterday
  16. Not sure about the liners yet. With the fenders rolled, we lost the mounting tabs along the arch. I don't plan to drive the car that much tbh. Went up to visit the car today. Looks so cool!
  17. Yet another reason to eat mints rather than gum.

  20. The local brand..ribbed and unshrinkable....two Seinfeld episodes:
  21. That part affects is the axial end play of the distributor shaft in the housing. If you switch over to a different piece (whether that is plastic or metal), you should check the end play and adjust the gap filling washers accordingly if necessary.

  23. It depends on the fuel being used and the camshaft and how you plan to drive it. Best to stay away from highest.

  25. View Advert remanufactured air pump Never installed reman air pump for early S30. Part numbers states that this is for a 1974 260Z with a/c. Only difference is the fan belt pulley has a wider groove for the v-belt. Seeing this unit does not have the pulley this should fit all models. The only possible problem would be the small knob that the pulley centers on. This might be a different size from your car. I don't have one to measure so if your interested please forward the diameter of your pump and I'll make sure this works before I ship out Asking $200.00 USD + shipping Advertiser Flyzlo Date 01/24/2021 Price $200.00 Category Parts for Sale

I would rate the worst one at an 8 out of 10. the others better then that. Also very small dent in one cap, should be able to tap out. $1000.00 USD + shipping. These caps are located in CANADA. I will use the postal service as it is way cheaper than any carrier. Advertiser Flyzlo Date 01/24/2021 Price $1,000.00 Category Parts for Sale
