    1973 front bumper wanted (or 70-72)

    Probably the same. Mine from futofab were made in Vietnam, at least that's what the boxes said. They've held up surprisingly well without any rust on the underside in the humid climate down here. I really like mine.

    Bumper conversion brackets for 280Z to 240Z small bumpers

    I bought chromed bumper bolts from Jegs for my futofab.com bumpers. They were 5/16" x1" and would turn in the bumper's hole. I wound up buying Stainless carriage bolts from a local hardware store and buffed them to a nice shine. They look good. I also bought 240 brackets from Chaz, Eurodat, for my 280's conversion to the thin bumpers. The original 240 bumpers I had hanging in my rafters after buying the European style from futofab. They were a little rusty and had those bumper guards on them but look better than the huge bumpers on my '77. Me and another guy bought some together to cut down on shipping charges. EDIT: The photo below with the measurements is from when I "thought" about making my own. Those are Nissan brackets that I found on google/images. @EuroDat was much easier and quicker than doing them myself. Thanks again Chaz.

    Misfiring while cruising

    How old is the distributor cap and rotor button? Could be jumping fire. Do you have the OE points distributor, if so the points may need adjusting or replacing. Maybe just a good tune up would fix your problem. Good luck.

    L24 w/1mm bore. Will N42 head work?

    Easy peasey when you're bored and it's cold out. It runs so good and such fun with the E88 I've never gotten around to putting the bigger valve E31 that I did all this for.

    Restoration of "One-eighty-seven"

    Those look great! @Bruce Palmer has been very helpful to me, they know what's going on.

    L24 w/1mm bore. Will N42 head work?

    I used a simpleton way to test. Put the head on a bare block and dropped the valve's. If they didn't fall though I'd remove a little more until they dropped free from the head to the bottom of the bore. I held each valve up with clothes pins.

    1972 Float Adjustment ...

    You have funky fuel down there from what I've read. Those plugs looked lean the last time you posted. Now you say they are sooted up? Confused once again. But hey, I'm not confused something'z wrong.

    1972 Float Adjustment ...

    I put the front and back like the pre '72s SUs Just like he OP had a Porsche mechanic do to his. He has no longer or shorter float arms anymore. Both are they same length as per his past post. Best thing I've done to my SUs. In my opinion. Have you set them equally shitty by disabling the fronts and the rears?

    L24 w/1mm bore. Will N42 head work?

    2nd that. It's easy with a die grinder and sanding flapper wheel. I put my head on the block, chucked the intake valves onto my drill and eased them down into the bores. That scratched enough to know how far I had to grind back. Sorry I don't know the size to tell you for setting N42 on a 1mm over 2.4 block. You might find out reading a bunch of bulls**t but I'd feel better doing your set up "hands on". Not going by internet "alternative facts".

    I do not run a heat riser hose on the air box. I agree with Dennis. Heat in the engine bay has no effect on your plugs. I'm thinking with the gasoline you have in Panama you need to figure out a hotter plug and gap, possibly?
