  1. +1 on the Sealed Power seals. I installed them 4 years ago, no issues thus far....
  2. Cliff might be busy doing the final buff on the Camry to make the 560 mi. trek to Branson.

    Z Story Part 1

    My order from Sean Desart arrived safely so last weekend I replaced the muffler & S pipe with 2 pieces of the Z Story S30 system. When the downpipe is available to mate up with the stock manifold, I will order the remaining pieces to complete the exhaust system. I also purchased a stainless resonator and an adapter to go from 2 to 2 1/2 inches. My great neighbor across the street let me use his lift and mig welded a new resonator and the 2" to 2 1/2" reducer, or increaser in this case to adapt to the stock system. Everything fitted up great, the quality is beyond excellent, and the sound of course very pleasing. Nice burble at idle, and beautiful note going up thru the gears and highway speeds. Can't wait to get the rest of the system, hopefully next spring. Will do a video with sound clip when I have a chance. Thanks @Sean Dezart for making available a great product!
  4. Best of luck with your FI project Steve! Watching with much interest....
  5. As time went on in 73, I believe the asbestos (Zup has mentioned it was indeed asbestos) heat wrap transitioned from the dealer installation to factory. Zup replaced the heat wrap with a more modern equivalent because it had deteriorated and became crumbly over 40 plus years with no way to restore it.
  6. Traced recent intermittent passenger side chirping / squeaky noise to half shaft u joint. Replaced all yesterday. My nice neighbor across the street let me use his lift for the job. I'll have to get one of those one day! Will be using his lift when my shipment from France / Zstory gets here next week. That will be a very fun project! Also continued on with prep & some paint chip touchup for Zcon.
  7. Are you certain the new coolant was a 50 50 mix? Antifreeze does not dissipate heat as well as water / antifreeze. Heater temp control at max hot when you circulated the new coolant?
  8. I sincerely hope that all works out well with the 280 dashes, ( I need one myself) however .... there is a big discrepancy in information between post #68 and #74 in less than 24 hours. Also, it seems to me that it would only take an hour or two to check some the the shipment and see if they are indeed acceptable to fulfill customer orders.
  9. Very nice efi connector refresh Noah! Antenna looks like it could use some attention .... lol Good looking car.
  10. @bpilati has been a ZCCA judge. Possibly he could weigh in with an opinion on the rules.
  11. I agree with Bruce ... and I regard his opinion highly! Be it beer or automotive engineering. The judging rules need an update (I know the judges are mostly unpaid volunteers) for instance, there is no "survivor" class. A true unmolested 40k miles 240 / 280z gets to compete with a full on restoration where everything is refreshed or brought up to as new standards. Not exactly a fair playing field. I know that Zup got dinged for his replacement of the fuel line insulation with a modern equivalent vs the original asbestos stuff.
  12. I think you will need 1/8 BSPT, not metric. Probably came with NPT fitting.
  13. Easy to find, such as this one on Amazon. $20 https://www.amazon.com/Sunpro-CP8206-StyleLine-Mechanical-Pressure/dp/B00029K00Y/ref=sr_1_20?keywords=Mechanical+Oil+Pressure+Gauge&qid=1559132417&s=automotive&sr=1-20
  14. @Zup I think Zup acquired one of those nos pumps for his 73 not too long ago. Maybe he can shed some light on the source.
  15. So sorry to see this happen Geoff. Best of luck with whatever route you decide is the future of the car.
