  1. Your wasting time with Al Allen. That's over and done with. Like I suggested before, find a cylinder head shop. That's your only option. You can keep trying to get an easy answer but there is not one. Buy another car. Or learn how to work on yours. Quit buying on ebay. If you want to save money get a Buick.
  2. No power! Hot or cold anything. Candles and shop LEDs. Saving my laptop battery for bedtime dvd, Family Guy you pervs. Lost it about 3 a.m. sleeping like a rock but my best damn Buddy woke me up. Been up since then too. Had to to lace my hiking boots in the pretty much dark and my pee hole was on my back side. Luckily the restaurant had power so I coffeed up there and rearranged my clothes. Going to be hard going to sleep but I have products for that so not so bad as my head in the morning. Anyhow, bored to death and thanks for letting me vent a little. Houses across the street have power. WTF! Electricity is like a Z, you won't miss it for years then one day it's gone. I'll be buying a generator as soon as they're available. Enjoy your commercials tonight.
  3. Same story every 4 years. Biden's gonna turn the pandemic around. 2016 Trump's gonna build a wall. I prefer someone who knows politics and politicians. I wouldn't try to fly a plane by myself.
  4. You got me there. I agree 100%. I was thinking about religion, the government etc.
  5. Your actions control your destiny. Everything else is just a suggestion.
  6. Do you people not read the news? Trump has ended the pandemic! He's "rounded the curve" more times than Mario Andretti. Washington, D.C. (WTRF) — The White House’s Office of Science and Technology listed “ending the COVID-19 pandemic” as one of the top accomplishments of the Trump administration’s first term. A release from OSTP said, “From the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic the Trump Administration has taken decisive actions to engage scientists and health professionals in academia, industry, and government to understand, treat and defeat the disease. “ Dr. Kelvin Droegemeier, the office’s director, said, “President Trump has solidified America’s standing as the most scientifically and technologically advanced nation the world has ever known”.
  7. Could be the drain for the cowl panel before the windshield? They drain on passenger's side.
  8. The sun came up today, that's good enough for me.
  9. I rebuilt my original 2.4 with the early E88 head. The 2.4s are a little more costly to get parts for but I like the higher rev of the smaller motor. The '73 will have bigger rods but the pistons should be the same size, 83mm, as the earlier 240s. I did mine for about $1,000 total but that includes a MSA header and premium exhaust. You'll end up using a lot of 280 parts, they just don't make the 240 stuff anymore. The best money I spent was for an aluminum flywheel. It weighs about 10lbs and revs up like crazy. Here's some info to read over when you can. https://www.google.com/search?q=2.4+engine+builds+classiczcars.com&rlz=1C1BOFA_enUS494US494&oq=2.4+engine+builds+classiczcars.com&aqs=chrome..69i57.17799j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  10. I'm the one getting peed on but my degree was learned on the high side of degrees.
  11. I agree with Zed Head with sporadic running on an older car. I can share my experience with a cruddy fuel tank on a 240 I bought that had been sitting for a long time. When mine died out I could pull the suction side hose off the fuel filter and blow back through it until I heard bubbling noises in the tank. Reconnect the hose and go like hell trying to get back home. It wasn't rust as it didn't stick to a magnet, just cruddy fuel. I had to drop the tank and clean it then I coated it with Red-Kote tank liner. has been fine for 4 years now? Try that, maybe it'll help you get closer to figuring it out. After acid cleaning... After Red-Kote...
  12. Would that be considered a heat riser maybe? Someone may have made it to clip on a header runner?
  13. http://350mile280z.com/ Holy moly! That is a great read out for your car. Great pictures too.
  14. Here's the guy that found it.
  15. Clearing a path is a major step for me in my garage. Congrats!
  16. What about when trashes the car and he says "$500? Seems a little steep to me" I love that movie too!
  17. If he doesn't leave the nozzles dropped, chokes on. I learned that the hard not to smell fuel in my upstairs apartment way. I moved my 240s around and left the chokes pulled back. Bad, bad choice. My garage apartment was a gas fumed bomb.
  18. I've had good luck with baking soda blasting. There's quite a few videos on youtube.com that show how to make one. That stuff is cheap too, messy as hell but it works. Good luck.
  19. Try googling "cylinder head rebuild service" in your country. They are very common in the States. They would make it like new for cheaper than buying another one. Actually if you find one close by they could fix yours without removing it, possibly? I would think there's a way they could test your questions on bad seals or guides etc. maybe just by pulling the valve cover off and visually looking around. If you have a damaged seal someone with experience could tell by viewing it.
  20. Never understood why they didn't have one over the fusible links and battery side, the electrical side. Always blow that side off with air after I wash mine.
  21. Now that's how you burn some buds!
  22. I ran Kendall GT-1 in an old 911 I had. My mechanic swore by that stuff for air cooled motors. He said prop planes used it too. I think it was synthetic or a synthetic blend. I know it was $10 a quart in the '90s and for a 13 quart oil change that was one more reason I went back to Datsun Zs. I've always heard you can go from dino oil to synthetic but once you use synthetic you can't go back to dinosaur fossils???
  23. https://www.google.com/search?client=ms-android-americamovil-us-revc&ei=zeyTX_PtEanO5gK726CwCw&q=head+on+valve+spring+compressor+classiczcars.com+&oq=head+on+valve+spring+compressor+classiczcars.com+&gs_lcp=ChNtb2JpbGUtZ3dzLXdpei1zZXJwEAMyBQghEKABOgQIABBHOgUIABDJAzoGCAAQFhAeOggIABAWEAoQHjoFCCEQqwI6CAghEBYQHRAeOgcIIRAKEKABUPI3WLlWYKdoaABwAXgAgAG9AYgBnQmSAQMwLjeYAQCgAQHIAQjAAQE&sclient=mobile-gws-wiz-serp#scso=_7-yTX-2qF8us5wKCg6CAAg12:3041.333251953125
  24. The E31 closeness to the bottom edge makes me think the 31k head has been cut too. Mine doesn't look as close as that one and it definitely had a cut. Could be the angle of the photo though so it's just a guess. Like Zed said "Dog pile on". Everyone is piling on so I thought I would join in too.
