  1. Same thing happened on my Z years ago, had to remove the float, it had fuel in it. Replaced with another float, ran fine.
  2. Mine didn't slip, most of the runs were 45+ seconds, butt still moved with normal seat belts. One strip of duct tape on the seat back should hold it up if it does slip. There's a set for $22.88, google cheap racing seat belts. I installed mine in 94, still use it.
  3. Made a chest belt out of a 3'' canvas strap back in 91, burned the ends to keep the fabric from coming apart. Fastened Velcro strips on the ends, worked quite well until I installed a 5 point cam lock in 94 when Hp increased to 218. Didn't move a bit in stock seat.
  4. Exceptionally nice, noticed the front bumper slightly higher on the left side from the previous picture from lonetreesteve.
  5. March/April of Road & Track has a nice article on the restoration shop in the UK. Also a BRE article of the 510
  6. I was stationed at Lowry AFB 1968, studied weapons systems on F100, F105,, F111, and F4 c,d & e aircraft .
  7. Kats , just checked the seats on my 10/69 Fairlady Z-L & 72 240Z. No vertical stitching. on either car.
  8. Maybe it's to differentiate male Z's from female Z's, they found out that the female Z's tend to whine, lol
  9. Geoff Brabham drove the 83 car, Chip Robinson drove the 84 Electromotive GTP ZX-T
  10. Kats, Thanks for the photos, I like the color.
  11. Captain Obvious fortunately both Z's are with me in Ohio, I planned on retiring to a warmer climate.
  12. Ken, I have a 72 240Z that was restored in 2000 & a 10/69 rhd Fairlady Z-L 5 speed. Planned to be in Port Charlotte by 2010, things just didn't work out. Welcome to the group, a lot of knowledge and help from this group, and occasionally you'll get a good laugh.
  13. Yes, and one who wishes he were in Port Charlotte with his two Z's.
  14. It seems like all the tests were conducted on dry pavement, any of these tests on wet, snow covered or icy pavement?
  15. Price probably would have been $17K, but missing 1 white striped tire.
  16. Thought I'd also chime in about Chinese "Metal". We got a flat on the left front late last year on our 09 Altima coupe. After removing the donut spare I had to raise the car a bit higher to install the fixed tire. As I was cranking the jack, my wife rolled the tire over. She helps out because I have a muscular disease, CMT. Anyhow, the car was high enough to almost get the tire on when the jack collapsed. The rotor banged down on the inside of the rim. I had to use my hydraulic jack to finish. On the side of the Nissan jack "made in China" was stamped, junk. The nut, where the threaded spindl
  17. To Everyone and their Families hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy safe New Year !
  18. I was thinking the same thing, no hatch vents below the window.
  19. Met Jim & his Wife, nice couple, when working as a Pit Marshal at a 12hr race at Nelson Ledges quite a few years ago. They lived not too far from me in N. Royalton, Oh. I remember going to Breyley Datsun after I was discharged in early 72 to purchase my 240Z, no luck with that idea. They wanted the $1000 down and wait 6-9 month deal. I ended up buying one from Stang Motors, Elyria, Oh, only $100 down and waited a week.
  20. And don't forget to set your scale back 5 pounds. Happy Thanksgiving !!!
  21. I bet there'd be a lot of us interested in the cars and tanks he has. Maybe he'd let you take some pics and post them for us to drool over. That's my all time favorite dream car, Gulf Ford GT40, that I can't afford. I'll have to settle for my Z and Fairlady.
  22. Glad you got on this Website Jeff, these guys are great, they can help & give you the best info on any problem you have.
