  1. Mikes Z shop in Whittier got good reviews. No experience with them though.
  2. My Honsowetz, "how to restore" book shows the oil slinger and adds an install step. Weird how the "modify" book tells not to install it. Would be good to know why.
  3. Also try popping the hood a little to vent the heat out while you are away from the car and see if that helps. It'll give you an idea of where to go next while trying to diagnose it. The 77 and 78 have louvered hoods to vent the heat. So there must have been an issue in the earlier models.
  4. I have this one by Craftsman and I like it. Makes adjusting the distributor easy.
  5. Thank goodness! I even zoomed in on it and had myself convinced it was a crack.
  6. Not to change the subject but is that a crack in your block (bottom area) near where the tranny bolts to it. Doesn't have anything to do with the leak, just curious.
  7. What ZH said. I experienced the same thing, hit a bump and heard a clunk sound. My TC rod nut (bushing end) on the passenger side backed off for whatever reason. Retorqued and all was good. Hopefully its that simple for you.
  8. Wow, very nice! I just noticed you're missing a wing nut at the rear of the air filter housing.
  9. Zcarsource.com looks like they have them but they want a lot of money for them. And they are used! Check to see if it can be taken apart. Could be a set of contacts that just need to be cleaned. Assuming it is failing and not something else.
  10. Welcome to the club Richie. She is a beautiful 240! We need more pics though. As far as I'm concerned you have landed on the best site there is! The people are friendly and very knowledgeable here. You will learn a lot. Probably the sole reason I still have my Z. Bob
  11. Yes on the Centerforce. Gold is stage 1 and orange/red is stage II
  12. Amen to that. PM me if you need to chat Cliff. I could use it from time to time myself. It's all I'm good for these days.
  13. its working for me and I have windows 10 with chrome browser as well
  14. I was curious of those as well but according to their website they are out of stock. Did you contact them to make sure they have them or will get them?
