    Got it from the original owner via a freind. It sat for 6 years so all the mechanicals need and overhaul and I have to do the motor. Hey, I really need an e31 in great shape.

  1. Not that hard to do, I did mine when I had my 240. Just take you time. Mine took about 3 hrs each seat but I replaced with new foam and refinished the seat supports.
  2. I said goodbye to mine. I sold the car, hope it enjoys it's new home. I will really miss this one, it was special and a hell of alot of fun.
  3. Just a slight gain, get a "C" grind cam. They come up for sale every now and then.
  4. The one I bought was too tight but if you take your time with a round rat tail it will fit. This is my last posting today as I have some buyers coming out to buy my 73 Saterday. Thanks all for the 6 or 7 yrs.
  5. Thanks for that post, I have a BRE311 cam on the shelf and never knew the specs.
  6. Did that, just asking a simple question of anyone who knows if this is right.
  7. 1st off yes I have done a search and well, there is no definitive answer to what is the stock wire hook up. No Pertronix, no ZX convertion. Just plain stock wire hook up. Ok, I just did a front harness replacement on my 73. The harness is off a 72 becuse it does not have that stupid aux harness off the voltage reg plug that wires back to the fual pump relay. Anyway, I had a differant setup with my last harness. What I need to know is the stock setup, stock wires, stock wire colors. What I have seen is the long strand with the temp relay wire, yellow also has a black wire with a spade that should go to the distributor. Coil plus side gets a short black/white wire and neg gets a short black wire. The resistor gets the thicker black wire to the back end and green to the front stud. Reason I ask is becuse I have seen lots of photos with all sorts of combinations. Just want to make sure on this. Thanks
  8. Why do you need a new flywheel, just have your resurfaced at a machine shop.
  9. I've seen your car, I'm not going to bother with this fight you seem to want. Have a nice day Mr mechanic
  10. Wrong, the width of a tire will matter in ride quality, putting wider tires on the front end will make it heavier, and I said when I bottom out they rub, If it's lowered it's going to bottom, that is if you drive the damm thing. I'm not running around scaping bottom all day. With 50 yrs behind me working on cars I think I know how to work on and setup suspension, not my first Z. Standard tire on the car was a 175SR14 that's what the car was designed for adding 4+ inches to the track will make the steering heavy, sorry but that how cars with no power steering react when you throw on wider and heavier tires, go figure. I never said he would have trouble I said streering will get heavy.
  11. 205/60-14 and 215/60-14 is too small of a diameter, looks weird. 225/60-14 is closer to the 25" stock diameter but the steering is going to be heavy on the front end. I'm running 205/60-15 on 7" fronts and 225/55-15 on 8" rear on a lowered strut and spring suspention. The ride is harsh in part to the size of the tires, the wider the tire the harsher the ride. I do rub a bit in the rear when I bottom out. I'm going back to stock height with 14x6 slots and I'm looking at 195/70-14 because of the right size overall diameter. Ride should be good and steering will be a bit lighter. 225/60-14 is close to stock diameter but the steering is going to be heavy like an old truck. I like the way my car looks and the handling is just plain insane but I sure hate the ride and I drive it most of the week.
  12. First off the car is a 73. I've done the alternator upgrade ( and the fuel pump relay problem) and headlight wiring harness. Everything worked great (about 6 month now) untill a week ago, dead battery and blown alternator and the diode on the upgrade plug was blow or melted. I bought some new upgrade plugs, and replaced the alternator, charged the battery. The issue I found was the white/red wire coming off the voltage reg plug was burned up. I cut and jumped it down stream in the harness to some clean wire in the harness. Seems to be ok for now. Questions, the amp gauge moves around like a tach anything from the middle to a 50+ reading, is this normal ? If it's a 60 amp alternator shouldn't I be getting a 60 amp reading ? Would upgrading the harness with larger gauge be worth the effort and where would you get color coded wire and plugs. Thanks
  13. There is no decoder ring, these cars were cookie cutter build, same thing one after another. Alloys were done at the dealership, also side stripes, and a/c
  14. The only ones left out there are going to be hard as rocks. I have new 0 miles spare and the sidewalls have pulled away from the rim and don't want to seat back in. I have to take it over to a tire shop and put a band on it to get it to seat again.
  15. Why not build a 2.7 out of the 2.4 like Robello does ?
