  1. Looking at these pics it makes me so glad I don’t live in Canada (nothing to do with the enthusiasts). Cool car, something about the 510, but your driving season is so short. Makes me shiver just looking at that unheated garage.
  2. Sorry Site.....I don’t know the part number....I depend on Motorsports or ZcarDepot to get it right.

    Good plan.....I like the 2x10’s. Can’t ever have too many motors!
  4. Kudos to Chris Bishop of Japanese Classics...........beautiful!
  5. According to Dave, I have the new ones (orange axles). I bought them in June.....you can see they are orange on my first post (100 mm).
  6. Dave.....Thanks for the update on your FutoFab CV axles. I certainly can attest to the fact that I have had zero problems with mine. Also, installation was a breeze and now, if I ever need to remove them, it is a ten minute job (just remove the 6 allen head bolts and you are loose). I have no noise and with well over 200 horses at the wheels, I feel like the strength is a big improvement over the old u joints. I guess there must have been some issues with the old WolfCreek design, but as far as I’m concerned, you’ve improved the product to perfection. The only thing I would suggest is some of your torque specs seem too high for the bolt sizes.....I wouldn’t want to break a bolt. Guy
  7. Really nice sequence Charles.........all those 70’s Datsuns are so damned cool!
  8. Call Motorsports......Give them the part number of the Exedy Pressure Plate you bought. Then, tell them to send you the correct collar for that clutch. BTW......the throw out bearing is not your problem.....throwout bearings for all 240Z’s, 280Z’s and 280ZX’s are exactly the same.......seems your problem is the wrong collar....IMO.
  9. If these numbers stack up, you are good to go. Like Zed Head said.......it is probably the wrong collar.......plenty of threads on this subject.
  10. This is exactly why the 280 damper bores were machined back far enough so you could feel the groove receive the woodfuff key. If you are off just a tiny bit, it can push the key through the oil slinger. So many ways to screw up a good motor by one mistake......what a waste! BTW Capt.....you want a tight fit on your damper.....some race dampers require up to 250lbs. of torque to install.
  11. Yep......all car nuts. This car will be my favorite yet of many, many great builds!
  12. Not sure about these two questions Capt, but would assume you need longer bolts for the flywheel versus the flex plate. I am sure that you need to install the brass bushing in the rear of the crankshaft though.........the autos didn’t have that bushing installed.
  13. Hope this helps.....don’t forget the cotter pin!
  14. BTW....You don’t have to disconnect the choke cables to pop up the nozzle......literally a 3 minute fix if that’s the problem and it sounds like it is. Just stick your hand under each carb and push up the nozzle....you’ll feel it pop up if that’s the problem.
