    78 280 Re-Assembly

    Yes, I've been down that contortionist road before and I did give the water c oc k a once over and it looked ok. The hose's showed no cracks. Personally, I would replace them now but I think the owner is getting a little tired and hesitant about the usual old Z warnings I'm giving. I've mentioned the kaput fuel pump and a missing fuel neck but haven't gotten a response yet. I did get him to buy an RT mount, all new urethane bushings, weather strip, and rubber stuff though. All that stuff adds up quick and can be shocking to someone who hasn't seen it since it was stripped. I do clean and/or repair stuff as I go so the parts that I have are thoroughly checked out before they go back on. I've mentioned the kaput fuel pump and a missing fuel neck but haven't gotten a response yet. The engine bay is further along than this pic, but it's looking pretty good. One more question, since this is an automatic car, what goes in place of the clutch master cylinder hole next to the brake booster? Should I just plug the hole with a grommet or something?

    1972 Float Adjustment ...

    Just took a 20 min ride along the highway at 6pm and a couple of fast traffic lights. Parked the car and pulled out plugs number 5, 2 and 4. Plug 4 now looks a little darker than 5 and 2.

    Rear wheel bearing install issue

    Ahh glad I’m not the only one what a pain in the arse it was lol. Great close up pics definitely will help those in need out one day. The mechanic that worked on mine didn’t notice any damage in the slots where the bearing goes but I’m sure something close to that is what caused my issue. Possibly needed to go perfectly seated in order for it it to be tightened down on an old and worn hub.

    510 Su's

    Funky! I'm sure the old-time carb guys would recognize that in an instant, but that's the first time I've ever seen something like that. Makes me wonder what was going on and caused that phenomenon. It's so even that it almost seems a relic of the original construction method. Stress risers caused by the ring rolling process to form it into a cylinder? Gear driven, and the pitch of the gears has something to do with the distance between the cracks? Hermetically sealed container that has been flexing and changing shape with many years of temperature changes and finally gave out? Some sort of corrosion phenomenon? Funky!

    JDM 2+2 grill?

    Picked this up from a friend as a replacement for one i lost in an accident. Am trying to figure out where the 2/2 came from, I thought North American 2+2s had the same grill as the coupes. Am curious if someone just added it to this grill. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. Cheers dude, works still to be completed but another weak link eliminated I expect. Thanks for the tip, that's a great little tutorial and one that I'd never thought of!

    S30 Frame Construction

    Factory replacement rails were sold as a one piece item, starting at the radiator support and ending behind the seat mounts. I have one side which was used to develop our 240 rails.

    rear wiper

    @rossiz A year or two ago you were talking about adding a rear wiper on you Z, did you ever do that? I found these and was wondering if they were the 280zx rear wiper that was needed... I found these the other day when I was cleaning up the shop.

    Caswell Plating

    Fired up the plating bench again today. It's sort of hard to start and stop. Would probably be easier to just plate until everything is done. The starting and stopping can make it hard to get the setup working right again. I tried to plate this "grease catcher" today. It goes on the back side of the front hub, held on by the wheel studs. Got mixed results I had these dull spots. I ran the current up and down and couldn't get rid of it. I ran this all the way through yellow cad and dried it. The dull spots wouldn't take color. Then I bead blasted it again and replated it. I had to rotate it a good bit to get it all to plate. I still had a few dull areas that I polish with a scrubby pad before chromating. Here is the result I think part of the issue was my power supply was maxed out. I ran this basically at 10 amps and I think it could have been higher. I have found higher currents make my parts brighter. I plated some front grease caps at close to 6 amps and they fizzed the whole time, but they came out shiny and nice. You can see them in the earlier picture...

    1971 HLS30-14938 "Lily" build

    I also finished rebuilding the front fender I have been messing with for probably a year I disassembled the inner and outer fender so I could rebuild the inner fender and patch some holes in the outer fender. I reattached this bracket to the inner fender before sliding the inner into the outre fender. I spot welded the bottom and the inner top flange then I dollied the flange back down flat Hung it up and added some black. I shooting black under the whole car and in all the wheel wells

    Sanden ac compressor on a 280zx mount

    I got the system in. Now just need to pull a vacuum. I also got some r12 and should install this weekend. The Zx bracket is super nice and everything tucks nicely The dryer I found matches almost perfectly.

    260z interlock TSB

    delayed update: it was neither the interlock nor the relay. it appears to be a loose connector (C5) under the dash and i'm sort of wishing it was the interlock instead.

    Z31 N/A RB project

    Went to see my machinist. He is almost done with rough porting. Then he is going to cut the valve seats, polish everything up and then combustion chamber shaping/unshrouding of the valves. My dad met me over there in one of his 240's so I snapped a pic of our cars together too.
