  1. Past hour
  2. will do, will post up some videos as I go. did notice my spray bar had a partial failure of one of the gaskets when I removed it, so they need to be redone as well. I did not notice any significant wear on the lobes, but the was a lot of sludge build up, esp in the head bolts, guess that is typical.
  3. im interested on the Left Door weatherstrip for my 1972 240z . Is Vintage Rubber the only reliable option for snug and tight fit?

  5. 3.5 turns is the highest idle. I tried 4 turns but had the same issue. I will check the floats tonight.
  6. Spreading the bent part out slightly with a chisel or drift should be enough. Oil them up before removing so that they can re-expand more easily. Think of it as a machining operation. Sometimes, apparently, the threads next to the flats get damaged during nut removal. But, because there are flats next to them I don't think that they supply any real holding power. It looks bad but it doesn't matter as far as function.
  7. Today
  8. Those last two are good ones. I had a 78 parts car that would catch, then let loose (catch-grind-whiiiiirrrr), many times before starting. The pin in the switch was loose. Years later after the car was long gone but I still had the switch, I figured out what was happening and restaked the pin with a drift. It had just loosened up over time. The pins that you see in the video that Dave WM supplied. You could wiggle the loose one with your fingers. You can just see the staked ends also in the first image, above.
  9. Got a new passenger side window regulator. Original had a broken wheel which doesn't work so well. Installed that last night. Attached an exhaust system comparison. My original is still at the muffler shop since I need another one, but here is the comparison with a spare I had in the backyard (That's a scary place) Worked on the Carb plumbing. I have one partially broken water system fitting that might still work. Will check today to see if I can find a new one. Also, I need the plumbing that goes from the water feed tube to the carbs. That is totally MIA. Will have to put out an APB to see if anyone has those. Will post pics of parts I need later today. Was playing with camera settings on car pic.
  10. I'm thinking of all new suspension rubber, strut bearings and the Koni's with stock springs. Found the OEM insulators for the $64.21 on Amazon with free shipping which makes the price difference from after market only about $40! https://www.amazon.com/1970-1978-Nissan-Front-Insulator-54320-E4100/dp/B00TNL7LTK
  11. To answer your question @87mj I believe you install the barrel clips over the pins first and then push the emblem in. This way you do not risk pushing one of the barrel clips in to the body.
  12. One of the big leaps to JNC popularity worldwide came as a result of the 1973 oil embargo. The crisis inspired designers, engineers, and entrepreneurs to think of ways to push the automobile’s fuel efficiency limits. One such person was … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  13. That's a nice looking Z. Interesting car stand, kind of a gear cranked teeter totter, did you buy it or make it?
  14. A dead tach could be a problem also. If it is shorted out it might be hindering the "break" part of the make-it-break-it spark generation cycle, since it's connected to the coil negative terminal. Has it always been that way? Yes, the module is up in front of the fuse panel. The parts on the 280Z EFI cars are interconnected. Problems with one system can cause problems with another. You might have some troubleshooting ahead of you.

  17. Yesterday
  18. Too bad you're so far away and I really don't need another "iron in the fire" GLWS
  19. Unless the car is in a relatively dry and not humid shop or garage, the raw metal will need to be protected. Some rattle can primer will help as long as it's not really sitting in the rain getting wet. Rattle can primer won't protect metal from the rain. If it's relatively dry where it's at then a rust treatment/converter will help the metal not flash rust for months.
  20. That’s something I’m interested in, too! Thanks for bringing this topic up, Ron.
  21. Ditto. Been thinking of John often lately and realized it has been over 3 years. RIP.

  25. He's using the same picture for both pumps, which he borrowed from Rockauto or some other site, or Airtex themselves. So you don't really know which pump you're getting. He might be selling the $30 pump for $67.50. I'd call and ask for the brand and where he gets them before buying. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=60014&cc=1209260&jsn=364 https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=60014&cc=1209260&jsn=364
