  1. My 12/70 #15721 has a #2 hood, reinforced corners, no holes beside hood release and angled release lever.
  2. https://driving.ca/nissan/features/feature-story/the-future-of-the-gt-r-and-z-are-in-good-hands-at-nissan An interesting interview with Hiroshi Tamura, chief product specialist for GTR and Nismo.
  3. Yeah that is too bad.So glad everyone is okay, the safety of vintage cars always is front of my mind whenever I roll out of the garage.
  4. You couldn't afford not to buy it at that price!
  5. Nice , I look forward to following your progress!
  6. Nice! That is the first 2+2 that I can say I really like. Would have been better off to go with an RB 25 or 26 In my opinion, a Zed has to have a straight six! Look forward to watching that episode of Gas Monkey!
  7. Just an update, got my new Alternator from Rock Auto, turned out its a GM part and my old new belt is too long! Quick trip to NAPA for a shorter belt and all is well, showing a good charge on the gauge and the car is running more strongly and idling better. I'm thinking that whatever problem I had was causing a weak or intermittent spark problem. Thanks to all who offered their input! Mark
  8. Just ordered one from Rock Auto, says it's a reman Hitachi unit. $79 CAD to my door! Can't beat that! As an interesting side note, I drove the Zed to work today and the Amp gauge was steady as a rock! Slight dip into - side when TS on. So....intermittent problem? The readings I got with the multi meter definitely show a problem so I will replace it and see what happens!
  9. No I didn't know that a Maxima Alt is the same, will check onthat! Thanks
  10. Not quite that simple, no ZX alternator available IN CANADA! At least no new or reman one. Searching for a rebuilder here in Edmonton.
  11. Just heard from Dave, looks like a faulty alternator. Should never be more than 15V off idle , the range should be smaller as well. Off to Napa later for a new alternator!
