  1. Haven’t driven the car in a couple of weeks but today i found some time. It drives so well after the dyno tune.
  2. My tuner played with the lowspeed to get the afr a bit better from the start, sadly i don’t know what he put in but it made it a bit better.
  3. For comparison. A friend of mine were at the same dyno a couple of weeks before me. L28 with 3x45 webers basically same as mine but he has a ported N42 head and a bigger cam. Got a lot more power.
  4. Lowspeed 55 F8 Main155 Air 160 Tube F16 Acc 45 Choke 36 But i had some problems at around 2500-3000rpms and the tuner adjusted something that made it a bit better will check tomorrow.
  5. Less power on this dyno but i think this dyno is very accurate (have been on two other dynos before). But i have a nice curve.
  6. Went for a 230km “hot as hell” trip to get the engine tuned on a dyno then the same “hot as hell” 230km trip home again....damn these cars aren’t made for driving in the sun. Found some pics on the web from last car meet when waiting for the tuner.
  7. Hahaha, well it’s an old American style race car ; )
  8. Well, it’s the first only Japcar meet since 2007 and we were 610 cars so that was great. Still only 5 Z cars.
  9. Took the Z to Japdays at Mantorp Park.
  10. Here’s a new dash from Vintage Dashes with a km/h face swap. There may be a small stock of the dashes (If it was a 240z you had) here in Europe if you are interested @EuroDat //Andreas
  11. Well, depending on were in the world you live parts aren’t as available as in other places. I live in Sweden and when i swapped my oem cam in my Us spec 240z for a Schneider cam (head had been rebuilt in the USA and the rebuilder wasent as exact/good as he should have been) the lashpads had to be adjusted a bit to get the exact wipe. I left the pads and my measurements to a mechanical school and they grinded them down to the size i wanted (then I could take some off if needed by myself with a small file. For me it would have taken 2-4 weeks or so to get correct lashpads from the US. This way it took me a couple of hours. I started with size 190 (that was all that msa had to offer) but can’t remember were i ended up, there were not to much that needed to be taken off the pads but still... better to aim for the exact same wipe on all then just make it work. //Andreas
  12. Nice!! What head gasket (thickness) was used and how tight was it between pistons and valves? Is the head shaved and how much in that case? //Andreas
  13. Just a heads up.. The pillar emblem for the early Fairladys are allready being replicated/made in Europe.
  14. Attended a nice small car meet today.
  15. Past inspections today now its good for another 2 years.
  16. Out drivning and enjoying that there are no oil leaks ; )
  17. 92B9DB7A-597E-4BE6-928F-064436AAF964.MOV Let’s see if it works now.
  18. 872F2D80-DA0C-48B4-8F79-1E2BA3AE88C5.MOV A160km drive done and no leaks....yet. Carbs and linkage have also been synced, valves adjusted etc. Now it really goes, made a great improvement.
  19. Up and running again, now just wait to see if there’s any oil leak. 244F8B31-A054-447B-BA3A-230EFB69A862.mp4
  20. Condition of the Schneider cam and valves/bolts etc checked. All looks great.
  21. I know the feeling, I have always finished my projects fast i think but the last project, my Mr30 E88 Head build with the potter cam (same as you have i guess?) will take a long time. Really annoying but sometimes you just have to accept that $^!# happens and sets back things like this. Keep up the good work. I’m interested to see how it works out. /Andreas
  22. Well, its back together. Just waiting on oil and filter.
