    Another Clutch Pedal Question

    Hi Wayne.....That distance is just under 2 inches on the above 73. BTW, number 16,303 is a 1970 240Z.....it wouldn’t have the offset bracket. Guy

    Another Clutch Pedal Question

    Here’s a thread I started on my 73 auto swap. Seemed to me I initially went with an early pedal and it worked, but at an awkward angle. I later installed a 73 pedal. The 2nd pic is from my thread with the early pedal....the 1st pic (dark pic that I just ran out and took for you) with the 73 pedal. Note how much closer to the brake pedal the 73 is (correct geometry). I’d go with the 73 pedal if it were me. IMO

    s30 NOS quarter panels

    Wow Blue....That’s a blast from the past. I remember seeing those for sale about 8 years ago. I drooled over that set. Where did you find that archive? Seems like they wanted $1200.00 if my memory serves me.
  8. I couldn’t agree with you more. I hope Delta Cams is around for a long, long time. They do beautiful work. I’ve run them in all of my performance L28’s, including the stroker.....absolutely no problems. I sent them 72 rockers myself for inventory...........like fine jewelry. Glad you are a fan Jim....I am too.

    5 speed clutch question

    Just call Motorsports and ask them to send the right clutch, collar and bearing. They know Z’s and will match everything for you correctly. I use the 240z combo on all my 4 speed and 5 speed Z’s. All have 280 motors......they’ll fix you up!
  10. I couldn’t agree more. You’ll get top dollar...I’ve seen Z’s a heck of a lot worse than this go for $35,000.00 on BAT. Especially if you get in a bidding war. Rich, just take a ton of pics, put a $40,000.00 reserve and watch the fun! I’ll bet this car hits $45,000.00 on BAT. You probably have $37,000.00 invested, especially if you count your hours at $70.00/hour.

    I’d like to do new Panasport wheels

    Wow....Beautiful car....beautiful shot. The S30’s are frickin awesome eh? I wouldn’t cut corners on anything but real Panasports....you’ll live with them forever, why not install “the best”...Made in Japan! IMHO. The 205 55 16 look great...

    I’d like to do new Panasport wheels

    Bought mine from Spruell Motorsports in Tucker, Georgia.....can’t remember what I paid, but they had the best price.

    I’d like to do new Panasport wheels

    Yes....I’ve tried 225 50 16’s....they rub. 205 50 16’s are too short. The 205 55 16’s are perfect IMO.....they fill the well and don’t have clearance issues. I love the Panasports (as you can see).

    I’d like to do new Panasport wheels

    CD.....I run 16x7 Panasports with 205 55 16 rubber. No problems with clearance.
  24. Any will work.....used or aftermarket. It’s a very straight forward exercise. Take off the old bumper and brackets. Bolt holes already exist for the early brackets. Bolt up the early brackets........4 bolts required.....and if I recall, you can use the 4 bolts that you take off the 73 brackets. Bolt up the new early bumpers in front and attach the two small bolts where the bumper ends attach to the front fenders (a rubber gasket between bolt and fender)......done......need a helper, but a one hour job. Improves the looks IMO.

    Lash pad fell off top of valve spring

    It was the Red Kote Liner....not sure if they didn’t get the right formula or didn’t let it cure correctly, but you could see the red color in his gas. They redid his tank and there was no further problem. He would throw lash pads everytime he fired it up until he fixed the problem. The intake vales were all that was affected....the liquid under heat would gum up the valve stems and cause the valves to stick. I know that many have used the Red Kote successfully for years, so I hope this is just an isolated example. I like to use Por 15 gas tank sealer myself....IMO only.
