  1. Great car!!! Your #4 pic is the Flow Guide Valve, it routes crankcase and fuel tank vapors into the air filter box for combustion. Two ports face the engine, one port faces rear. The lower of the two ports connects to the crankcase breather pipe, the upper port connects to a small forward-facing tube on the back of the air filter, the rearward port connects to a hard line rising from the left frame rail (coming from the fuel tank). Since you are running the stock air filter set-up, there is no gain by not connecting these ports. If you leave them open you are adding some small amount of vapors to the atmosphere. #57 on the catalog diagram: http://www.carpartsmanual.com/datsuns30/Datsun-Z-Index/Engine-240Z-260Z/Emission-Control-Device @siteunseen your car may not have one now but it did at one time - it was stock thru '73.

  4. This recent thread may help you with the synchros question:
  5. Now if only the weather in Texas would cool down!!!
  6. The ball and socket on the front side means there is absolutely zero compliance on the T/C rod moving rearward - every impact will be transmitted to the body. Urethane bushings will be almost as severe in my opinion. I suspect they recommend a rubber bushing on the backside to reduce a hard rebound snap pulling forward on the T/C box mount. The design of the T/C box is oriented to resist rearward forces, not the other direction. Just my $0.02 worth.
  7. Oh sure... blame it on the guy down in Texas, he's such a bad influence on everyone! And, certainly I'm also responsible for the extra purchases as well. bad dog!!! I installed that ball and socket kit many years ago (still have it) when I also swapped out the front control arm bushings for eccentric bushings. I was doing a lot of autocrossing back then. The changes did tighten up the front end but at a cost of civility in the everyday drive experience. The kit came out in favor of rubber T/C bushings when I restoed the car. I see it as a good option for a track or AX intensive setup. My work on the shock swap will also wait until a break in the temps - still running mid-to-high 90's here.
