  1. That looks incredible Site.......I saw a truck with a commercial cooker in tow on I20 passing through Columbia, S.C. It had a sign that said” You can smell our butts a mile away”.
  2. Just incredible.....maybe going to be the most impressive Nissan in the country. This will bring a new interest in the Z31!
  3. My feelings exactly Jeff. In 1970 and 71, no one noticed the stock Z’s with skinny tires and rolling around the turns. When one came by with front and rear spoilers, lowered and a tuned exhaust music, a nice set of 7 inch wheels, it turned the heads. Some like a museum piece ( not me or Brandon) and that’s ok....to each his own. When you have a Z set up right, there ain’t nothing like it.....you know what I’m talking about ( your race car included). They are meant to be drivers....easy to modify, and a blast to be driven.....thanks for the compliment....why I consider you in the same fraternity as me and Brandon!!!!!!! Guy
  4. Not sure.....I just threaded it on till snug, then threaded it back to the tranny, threaded it on there and amazingly it worked! Just get it squared up and it will eventually go on. (Scrapes on my arm to show how contorted I was). The job stands out right up there with removing rear driveshaft bolts and control arm pins in difficulty!
  5. I just did my 73 this weekend. Disconnect the transmission end so you can pull loose cable at the speedometer. Feed the cable in the firewall and then reach your hand up behind the speedometer to feel the threads. Now, pull the cable in and try to bend (coerce) the cable so it’s approaching the threads squarely. Now, push the threaded collar onto the speedometer threads and just keep spinning till the threads grab. The secret is to make sure you are square. One of those jobs that really suck on getting done on a Z.
  6. I would definitely go with the SU’s. They are so simple and absolutely no problem feeding your set up. Get Ztherapy to build a set for you. They do a great job on my 3.1 Stroker Motors.
  7. Me either Jeff.......I’ve never replaced rear bearings. My motto “ If it ain’t broke, don’t break It”
  8. Wow.....what a great idea.....no idea why it wouldn’t work!
  9. JSM.....They all are a joy to drive....the silver and green cars have Stroker 3.1 Motors.....hard not to climb into one of those when I need a little lift!
  10. Solid lifters make noise. Your video displays normal noise. Valves should be set at .008 inches intake...... .010 exhaust. My guess is that your defect was probably from the factory. 9A55D3EA-537B-4D17-9833-6AEDD3EFFD66.MOV
  11. Just my opinion, but I doubt that the defect in that lobe is your source of noise. If it were mine, I would inspect the rocker for that lobe and if intact, I’d continue to run what you got.
  12. I’m impressed inline6.......looks like you are having fun too!!
  13. Hey grannyknot......you stealing my cars lol! Don’t know why I put all my cars under “about me”. Probably because my technical skills aren’t too strong. I always call SteveJ when I need help!
