[2015] What Did You Do To/with Your Z Today?

    Recommended Posts

    FYI, since WCR has shut down my differential hunt also came to an end. I'm running a welded 3.36 and am in dire need of an LSD and a 4.11 would be perfect.

    Collected the Z from the tuners today, the consensus about the Facet Fuel Pump was that it will be ok mounted in the engine compartment, we'll see but I'm happy with it and the triple instillation also stripped my wheel Trims ( caps ) ready for refurbing :-) it's been a good day

    I really like that set up much better than mine. My Mikuni manifold made in the 70's does

    not have the adjustable arms like yours. I just may have save and upgrade after seeing yours.

    Red7. If they say its good in that location, then go with it. I assume they would know more than me.

    Here is an updated photo of where I installed mine in the factory location.

    The pump bracket shown came on my 72 from the factory.

    Thanks lumens, they seem to be confident in its ability, I guess I'll find out as I use it

    Zstory Jdm silencer/muffler installed! The sound is very nice.

    No drone and quiet below 3000 rpm and above 4000 it makes a fantastic sound!post-22076-0-54507500-1441991456_thumb.jpost-22076-0-33786900-1441991500_thumb.jpost-22076-0-17713000-1441991538_thumb.j

    Last Sunday the car died leaving Caffeine & Octane. Helpful spectators pushed me back in the lot and I spent an hour checking it out before calling for a tow home. At home I sprayed starter fluid in the air filter housing to rule out fuel as the culprit. Turn the key, click-click-click. Now the starter won't crank the engine. Hooked up a remote starter and got the same result. Tried the old screwdriver across the solenoid terminals and it cranked, so figured it must be the solenoid. Ordered one from RockAuto and installed it yesterday.

     

    With the starter working I repeated the starter fluid in the air cleaner and it didn't start. Checked for spark and found none. Searched the forums and figured it was either the points or the coil. This morning I went in search of the points. A nearby store's website said they had them Not so. Found another store (different brand) 8 miles away that had the points and coil according to their website. Not to be fooled twice I called first and they actually had them. Got home and installed both and it started right up. Spent another hour trying to get the point gap right. (Someone should come up with an alternative to points  :rolleyes:.)  Dwell is a little low, but it runs. Set the timing and took it for a drive.

     

    A beautiful day to have a running Z. Thanks to the help from the forums I got to enjoy it.

    Be sure you have the capacitor on your points or they will scorch quickly and kill your spark.

    Installed a pair of 7" H4 housings and bulbs from KC to replace the silly sealed beams. Broke only 2 of 8 screws holding the buckets in, and spent an hour or so swearing at the car before getting them somewhat in place. The MSA headlight covers are pretty much the biggest pain in the arse I need to regularity deal with. They're new, and both have cracked, and they scratch inanely easily. Next time they come off they're going in the trash. The buckets are rotted and both adjustment mechanisms are beyond repair, but the clearer lens and h4 bulb's ease of future replacement are a must. Lame KC logo on the bottom of the reflector housing, but not too obvious. These shipped with decent Philips 9003 bulbs installed, if anyone has wondered... KC doesn't specify other than 55w.

    While my 77' is in for body work (rockers,doglegs,and rear valence), I took the leap and POR15'd the fuel tank, inside and out. I've been wanting to do this for a while now and was inspired by this thread  http://www.classiczcars.com/topic/17542-treating-insideoutside-of-gas-tank-with-por15-products-and-removing-evaporation-tank/page-2?hl=tank

    Was there any prior leaks or sweats in the tank that the por15 sealed up?

    There were no leaks or anything to cause necessity. There was a minimal amount of rust in the interior though.  Just took the opportunity to address any future problems and to give myself a little piece of mind. If any fuel problems occur in the future, I will know its condition and can eliminate our friend, Mr. Rust in the tank, as a problem source.

     

    The bonus is that if I ever decide to part ways with the Z, It makes a very good selling point. But I don't see that happening anytime soon.
