  1. will fit the S30. I have bought one and will fit in the New Year. It is powered, and I bought all lines, pump, etc. I have to make brackets to fit the pump to my sbc, but should be reasonably straight forward. No use fitting a powered rack without hooking up the power assist. Would be far to heavy - just try switching off the motor in a modern car and try to steer it! Pics of a Mazda rack in a RHD 240Z for info. Should be similar for LHD, just mirrored:
  2. '74 260Z, G Nose, 16" Wats, 350sbc, T56. http://img90.imageshack.us/img90/2743/260407038ta9.th.jpg' alt='260407038ta9.th.jpg'>
  3. is like this: http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/6435/doorlockuk7.th.jpg' alt='doorlockuk7.th.jpg'> The dovetail is on the door and slides into the lock where the little white nylon spring loaded part is. It 'guides' the door into alignment to prevent any clash and is supposed to take care of any slight sag in the door hinges.
  4. I want to fit similar mirrors and have a pair of light alloy 'Downton' bullet mirrors just waiting. I tend to agree with Geezer (being one myself) that they should be a little more forward. A quick and dirty edit of BadDog's pic shows the look I'm after: Cheers,
  5. to reduce the moment at the apex. I'm very happy with this arrangement: http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/5486/350sbcnv0.th.jpg' alt='350sbcnv0.th.jpg'>
  6. The pics are of the MX5 (Miata) rack. I believe Subaru fits also. http://img181.imageshack.us/img181/5567/mx5rack04oo1.th.jpg' alt='mx5rack04oo1.th.jpg'>
  7. having just located a good condition early model unit, complete with pump piping, etc. I am told it is a simple fit, but need datto tie-rod ends. Until I try it I can't say much more. Here's a pic of one fitted in a 240Z (RHD): I thought our later Zs had power steering, anyway. Is the US model different?The obvious swap would be a powered rack from a 280ZX, I guess. Cheers.
