  1. Got it out in the sunshine for awhile. Wore the flat spots out of the tires.
  2. Those look to be rebuilt OEM cores. The only place I've recently seen with left and right was MSA. Someone went through this not too long ago is what I remember. https://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/CTGY/classic21a09
  3. here's some good glue blob shots also. http://atlanticz.ca/zclub/techtips/afm/index.html
  4. I bought all my 240's brake stuff off amazon.com. Rotors and pads, new reservoirs and master cylinder, booster to. Best prices I found. The rears are different though. You can put new cylinders on for $50 or $200 for the OE style. I went the $50 route. On your thermostat I would say get a Nissan, they're bigger and more robust than the chain stores. I think mine's a 160 degree and my car idles in my garage at 176 degrees with zero wind flow. I'm sure it drops when I'm driving. zcardepot.com has everything you need in one place or you can search for nissan p/ns and get your local dealership to order stuff for you.
  5. Looks good! I used this to redo my '77's combo switch. It's a little different but easy to figure out, more wires for the 280 if I remember right. http://www.kamikazeracing.org/dl/ZTech/Rebuild_240Z_combo_switch.pdf google search... https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1BOFA_enUS494US494&ei=aNyTXIDjOPDU5gKvoKGQCw&q=280z+combo+switch+repair+classiczcars.com&oq=280z+combo+switch+repair+classiczcars.com&gs_l=psy-ab.3...13550.23249..23683...0.0..0.121.1576.15j4......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i71j33i299j33i160.6c9QNyOgTuI
  6. Thank you Guy, nowhere for a chipmunk's turd like me to go and be welcomed by so many good people.
  7. You guessed the right inspiration for that.
  8. Ferg I had to ask the community about that one, I wasn't positive it was a Z. Gives you that warm fuzzy feeling seeing your car on a money management commercial, makes me think I finally made a good decision.
  9. My Dad told me when he was younger somehow or another they put plugs in the exhaust and made fireballs come out the pipes. My Dad bullshits me a lot though. Pretty funny now that he's 80 and nuttier than a squirrel's turd.
  10. Prolly been mentioned before but I watched Fast Times at Ridgemont High this weekend. Damone is selling tickets in the parking lot, '76 I think, 280 parked while Forest Witaker pulls up in his Camaro Z28.
  11. I remember your car. If it runs good put up some pictures and you'll get so many opinions you could figure out a happy medium. Seems like it was a respray red with automatic transmission?
  12. Squeeze the fuel lines in the engine bay to see if they're hard. With a good fuel pressure regulator and fuel pump they should be pretty hard to pinch or squeeze while running. There's been many gremlins fixed by wrapping the ECU a few times, not too hard though.
  13. Good kid. Pictures are well done. Congratulations.
  14. I only have one supplier local to me with anything, Tractor Supply. I've tried the black stuff, too rough. Glass beads work the best in my opinion just ease into the surface getting closer as you need to. I have a moisture separator out of the compressor and a smaller one before the tool. My 60 gallon runs constantly while "sand blasting". Lots of moisture created all along. Good luck.
  15. Cool, I want one! Can hardly wait to see it running.
  16. Interstate Batteries, bling to my eyes. 🎧🤡
  17. Here's a thread I found that talks about the water passages and the spacers. I apologize if I've confused your problem. I tend to think out loud a lot.
  18. The spacers in between the carbs and the manifold are a lot thinner than my '72. Would that have an effect on the length of the rod with the plastic marbles? Do the new spacers have the holes for water?
  19. Hard to tell but heres mine. there's a screw missing on the front carb stop on your first pic.
  20. I put my linkage back on wrong one time. Revved way too high right away. Check the stops on both sides, in the linkage between the carbs. Those flat things.
  21. Mark's the Man. I always forget the simple answers.
