  1. I'm going to chime in on this as I just went through a very lengthy exercise to source a new set of tires and wheels for my car. So for reference, mine is a late manufacture 260Z (read that as 280Z). I run Eibach lowering springs and Tokiko illuminas. My present setup uses 16 x 7" Konig Rewinds (0 offset) on Michelin Pilot Sport 225-50X16. I have zero clearance problems on the front and some very minor rubbing on the rear when I go over hard bumps at speed. Rolling the rear fenders solved 90% of that problem. My only regret is that I did not do the rolling before the car was painted

  2. Here's the comparison pic between 240 and 260 from that other thread: I'm wondering if anyone has done a similar comparison for the 280's.

  3. Is that the flattest surface you can find? Your level is sitting on a plant. The ground looks gravelly. Looks like a fair idea but execution is iffy. A carpenter's square would get you closer.

  4. One correction that needs to be made to Datsunzgarage in the Engine section "Seventh - Ignition" it talks about if you do a 81 to 83 distributor you'll have to swap the E12-92 for an E12-80 module. This is NOT true. The E12-92 module works EXACTLY like the E12-80 module when you only use the "C" and "B" connections, just don't hook up anything else. I've been running an E12-92 module on my car for years with only the C and B connections and it works just like the E12-80.

  6. Ok! Go Hoover!!!! @240260280 I'll settle up with you in Atlanta So I got the Mustang brake booster kit in from Harmon Classic Brakes today I think that diaphragm is going to work great! I haven't looked through the rest of the kit yet Old diaphragm New diaphragm OD 6-13/16" 6 3/4" ID 2.59" 2.42" Hub OD 2.65" at diaphragm I suspect the ID on the old disc is stretched from having been on the hub for so long They basically look identical except for the tears in the old one and the deformation from having

  8. Except for the fact that really wide tires on the back looks really really cool. OK. I'll stop now.

  9. '73 automatic for $3,200. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/224104808219824/ $3,200 Driven 48,565 miles Automatic transmission Mechanically sound, ready to drive or for someone to finish restoration. This car has been in the family since 1984. It was reupholstered, painted and in cherry condition in 1987. Poor thing sat for 20yrs here in Central Oregon before coming to me in 2007. I won’t get into the time and money I’ve scraped toge

  10. I like the Maxima N47 head. It is one of the later heads and seems to have the same geometry as modified E31's for racing. The exhaust ports are fine. Larger intake seats will help it. btw it is nice to get a HP data point from your work! 185HP 10.2CR 2.82litre

  11. Another option is to remove the strut tops, heat them to remove the rubber insert, cut 1" (or whatever) off the rubber, insert into the metal cup and then fold the metal sides over to hold it in place. You'll want to cut 4 slices in the metal side to fold it over in 4 sections. Does that make sense? Chuck
