  1. well I have been wanting to do this for a long time, so now is the time to replace the manual antenna. anybody find a good quality power antenna for the early z cars. it seems like metro or retro sound is what I come up with on the net. would like to have something pretty reliable at least so any suggestions would help. kind regards
  2. thanks captain obvious for the follow-up on the old thread . from reading it I will leave my carbs alone as the brass plunger is submerged in the oil and that is where it all ways stays . Bruce made a good point there .
  3. yes I will give it a good cleaning and will let you know how I make out kind regards
  4. I did not take the carbs apart yet! I fill the oil between the 2 marks on the dip stick so it is between the low and the high mark. I did not want to take them apart yet as I was checking with other members here to see what there results were. I know if they are over filled the motor will burn off the excess oil and this seems to be where my oil level wants to stay all the time low .the oil I have came from motorsport auto years ago so maybe it might be a little thin? so any way I ordered a few days ago the 20w 3-1 oil will see if that will make a difference ? probably not!!!!
  5. hi mark ,I have resistance yes but not as much as you have .I fill them just above the inside tube where the dip stick pushes in . [ looking down in]
  6. I have a set of 1971 4 bolt carbs and it seems that my oil level in both never stay full. drive for several hundred miles and check the level and both are all ways just a little below the low mark on the damper plunger. like just above the round brass part on the plunger, is this normal for them to be at that level . thanks
  7. that is about the closest size to get to oem. the 195/65 r15 is 25" tall where the 205 /60 r15 is 24.7 tall the oem tire 195/70 r14 is 24.7 tall not much choices in the 205 may have to go with the 195
  8. anybody running this size 195/65 r15 tire ? I am looking for new rubber and currently have 205/60 r15 on the car but there is more of a choice in this 195/65r15 size to pick from. I think it will fit fine as it is just a tad taller and a tad thinner in width. looking for some comments on that size thanks
  9. thanks siteunseen for the comment . I have been looking also at the Michelin defender, it looks like a great choice also I think. there are not many choices in this size anymore .
  10. it is time for new rubber so I ask and what you people using today in this tire size for road only. I drive only nice days and want a good high performance touring tire that is quiet and smooth riding thanks
  11. does anybody know of any sites that I can lookup the history ,purchase date, and service records online for my z . just thought it might be interesting thanks kind regards'
  12. just something else to check look at the fuel filter mine had varnish in it after sitting for the winter 1 time and I changed it and it started and ran fine after that . on my 260z it is located back by the gas tank next to the fuel pump.
  13. pumping the peddle does nothing on these cars try either and make sure the choke is in full position , if the carbs are empty it will take some time to prime them . check spark also
  14. these bulbs are the wedge type with a glass base and has the wire for contact on each side of the base. they come in mini , small, medium, and large sizes. I would never have thought the mini is still being used and for sale in the auto stores today .
