  1. Hi All, Wanting to get a rotisserie and was looking for some recommendations. I'm currently considering this one; Any advise on the subject would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Thanks for the replies!! It's hard to tell by the picture, but the first 5 to 6 threads are pretty much gone. Come to find out it was a SAE nut that was forced on (been finding that same issue all over the car). Guess I'll start off with trying to rethread it, or even try going down to a M8 x 1.5........ If all else fails....I'll be giving you a shout!! Thanks
  3. Does anyone know if it is possible to replace the studs on the rear strut mount? P.O. stripped one out when he installed his POS homemade strut brace.
  4. Either way, the strut was bolted in the same spot it would have been if the holes had not been extended. To be honest, I don't think the PO had any working knowledge for what you all are suggesting. Given all that i have encountered with this Z over the past 2 years, he had to be less than a shade tree mechanic.
  5. Thanks for the quick response....I figured it would be a time consuming issue. The adjustable camber plates look to be a possible solution also. Anyone out there care to comment on the performance? I would like to hear the good and bad before deciding. Thanks!
  6. After removing front strut assembly, I found this..... The oversized washers should have been a clue to what i'd find. My guess is that he was trying to replace the struts without removing the entire assembly. Does anyone have any suggestions (preferably cheap) on how to fix this?
  7. Has this book been helpful? I have seen it many times before, but have been reluctant to buy. I rebuilt mine using the Haynes, Chiltons, and 1978 Datsun Service Manual. I happened to luck out on ebay one day and picked up the 78, 79, & 82 service manuals in great condition, Cost me $23.50 and $16 for shipping..Total of $39.50 for all three books ...
  8. Thanks for the advise! I remember reading that thred once before,..... lots of great advise spread all over this site....
  9. This being my first complete rebuild, I'm looking for any advice before i crank this baby up for the first time..... I do have a small, very slow drip from the oil pump (pressure regulator valve bolt) that i have to correct, Is it as simple as changing the washer?
  10. Thanks for the quick reply, I was just concerned that it would have an adverse effect since the tensioner was controlled by oil pressure along with the spring.
  11. Does anyone know where to get the gasket for the timing chain tensioner? I purchased a complete timing kit, but to my surprise there was not one included. I have search many different Z parts sites but still have not had any luck finding one. Would using Form-A-Gasket be an acceptable alternative?
  12. In the moderators queue for upload to the downloads page.
  13. Thanks for the info!!!! It'll give me something to work on this weekend
  14. This is not as nice as the one done for the '77 280z's, but i got tired of following the black & white lines........ It's just a quick overlay using photoshop........Hope it's benefical, ENJOY!!!!!!! Upload is PDF, pm me if you want the photoshop file. 1978 Color Wiring Diagram.pdf
  15. A little off subject, but what is the trick to getting the lock cylinder out of the ignition? I tried for days before finally giving up..
