    Which Trans For A '71?

    Chas, I was unable to get the original style boot to fit. I had to use the boot from a 73. The clearance is tight but in that picture the transmission is in 1st or 3rd. I didn't want to worry about my weld breaking if I did it that way. Good welders wouldn't have a problem though.

    Which Trans For A '71?

    The shifter in post #4 has not been cut and rewelded. I used an oxy/acetylene torch to heat it and bend it. Once I got it close I heated it up again and flattened it out on the top. I probably didn't need to trim the couple mm's of sheet metal and I did not modify the console at all. This method takes a little bit of patience. Heat it then bend it and test it the do it again and again. While your bending it, keep a bolt in the pin hole so it doesn't get distorted. I have put plenty of miles on it and never had a problem. It's not hard to do. You just need patience and a hot torch. Good luck. Brian

    But think how much fun it will be to wear them out again.

    Doing laps *incar videos*

    This was at grip fest in North Carolina in 2012. Great event put together by grip syndicate.
  5. I just removed mine last weekend. 1 bolt and 2 studs with nuts on them. Came off no problem. Must just be stuck on there. You could try tapping it with a rubber mallet

    Quick Carb Tuning Question

    I think you can plug the brake booster line off for your tuning purposes and then hook it back up before you drive it again. If it idles well but when you step on brake it drops down, your booster or hose going to it is most likely leaking.

    1970 rear sway bar

    I just put my rear sway bar on after 2 years of slacking and I wish I had done it a long time ago. My front and rear are both 1" and I have urethane end link bushings on front and rubber on the back. I am very happy with how it handles.
  9. Haven't been on site in a while and not sure if this has been shared or not but if not here it is. Kinda cool to see a 240z on the list of cars growing in value. Yahoo!
  10. I have driven car for about a year now including 10 laps around a road course at gripfest and have had no problems with the shifter. This shifter is for a 4 speed type B transmission. Not a 5 speed. Not sure if there is any difference that would make this shifter not work with a 5 speed. If 5 speed is same as type B transmission except for the extra gear, I would think it would work fine.
  11. Thats is correct. I heated and bended then tried it. Took me 4 or 5 times to get it right. All together I spent an hour or 2 doing it. Brian

    Tuning 40 DCOE Weber 151 on an L24

    How do you guys balance carbs at 3000 rpm? If I try with my sk meter, the meter is off the scale and unreadable. Also how do you keep it at steady 3000 without using throttle stop screws and messing up balance at idle or am I missing something? I just visually balanced throttle linkage operation and its pretty good but maybe it can be better. Its perfect at idle as far as balance goes. Milgeo....from a seat of pants tuner, I would try going up on idle jet and see if it makes a difference. Are your plugs on the white side after idling for a few minutes? Brian

    MSA A pillar trim, header trim and headliner

    Just got the new headliner. Is the 3M heavy duty adhesive good to spray it with? Last time I, I sprayed the roof and the headliner then let it sit for 10 minutes or so and then put liner up. Was probably 70 degrees in garage.
