  3. That's the carpet finisher for the passenger footwell. Bolts holes go on the bottom. Sent from my SM-G950U1 using Tapatalk
  4. Yesterday
  5. I’m putting back the trim pieces that the PO gave in a box. Does anyone know where this goes? I been trying to figure it out 😄
  6. an 1/8th would be 0.125 if I am remembering correctly
  7. check the fuel, no joke, I did this and was out of gas.
  8. That would be great if you do. PM me if with a price if you have one. Thanks Charles, Bob.
  9. I might, I would have to locate it
  10. Thanks to @Convertt, I also have a very nice cowl piece. It was originally a lime yellow part which is kinda cool.
  11. Thank you guys so much! I'll be getting to this sometime this week. Thank you again!
  12. Kats, that may be true of guys from our generation but the younger guys I see at car shows are JDM crazy and when they get a chance to look over a 240z in person they really appreciate it, left hand drive JDM cars always have a crowd of young guys around them. There is hope yet.
  13. Check to see if plugs are black.Could be too rich and plugs fouled. If so it is most likely your temp sensor wiring open or crossed with another sensor.
  14. I once "borrowed" a box of black hair dye to freshen up a set of cargo straps for a 240z, never heard a word about it, couldn't be me my hair hasn't been black for years. The cargo straps looked fantastic.
  15. @Zed Head, as much as I like the RT mount I'm still impressed with the simplicity of the mount you made.
  16. So the engine has been running well, I've been starting it every now and then to check for exhaust leaks, coolant leaks and such. Today I got the D/S seat installed and started the engine to take it for the first drive, the engine started fine, ran for about 30 sec with the rpms roaming and then the rpms got lower and lower, I blipped the throttle and it momentarily reved up but went back down until it died. It started up again just fine but did the same routine and died within 10 sec, now it won't catch at all. Spark is good, fuel pump is on when I push the AFM door a bit, sound like anything specific? I haven't put the EFI bible away yet, guess I'll start at the beginging and YES the ECU is plugged in this time.
  17. View Advert looking for..... Does anyone have a known good working temp gauge for a 77 280 that they don't mind parting with? I'm in need of one. Trouble shooting my coolant system and it has lead me to what I believe to be a defective one. Looks like 77 and 78 will work, according to my microfiche Thanks Advertiser rcb280z Date 07/22/2019 Price Category Parts Wanted Year 1977 Model 280z

  19. This is probably what you're looking for. The link is sold out, but you could ask.
  20. Use a 280ZX block....bore it .040 over, use P79 flat top pistons, use the modern P79 head or N42 head (not the E88 that you have). If you go P79 head, shave and shim it .080 and install a Isky Stage III Cam. Put your numbers matching engine on a stand in the closet. Now you’ve got a fun engine!
  21. I have a 260 with 188K original miles and this winter I am going to rebuild the motor. My original thought is to keep the E88 head but stick the larger intake valves in it. Then mate this to either my 260 block that has been bored out (keeping the car matching numbers) or use a 280 block with flat top pistons. So I have 2 questions: 1. Has anybody bored out a 260 block, is it the same as boring out a 240 block, how much can I get away with? 2. If I use a 280 block with my E88 head is there anything I should look for, I guess my concern is with oil and water passages. I know my E88 has a spray bar and wasn't sure about how that would work with the later blocks...
  22. It's cool, don't worry about it. Unplugging/capping the fresh-air dashpot's vacuum line did the trick, thanks though!
