    I have a memory of there being two short bolts and two long ones, of the four across the top.  Maybe you got a short one in a long hole.  And, if it is the right bolt but it is stripped, maybe there are usable threads left at the bottom of the hole, that a longer bolt will grab.

    Or maybe a shorter one? Can't remember the torque spec but it can't be much.

    I believe there is a locating pin on the later ones that isn’t on the earlier Zs.



    The 280s don't have a problem with the line up pin but the 240s do. They went to a universal fit off the 280 dimensions but they won't sit in the 240 holes. I had to file my 240 pins down to get them in. On my 280 they fit.

  2. Can you just go up to the next size on that one bolt? That's what I'd do. It's aluminum and easy to do. I put bigger ones on the exhaust and they cut in pretty easily just had to go slow. Foward then backed them out a few rounds and foward again. You could try that. Might have to wire brush the threads out of the bigger bolt, use some anti seize "slick-um" too. The heads are soft aluminum.

  3. I love my 15" rewinds. 205/50 Falkens is what I run. They fill the space perfectly in my opinion. 16" are too much for a 240 so I put them on my 280. Still a little too much for me but way better on the 280. Go to motorsportsauto.com I think and they have suggestions on tire sizes for our cars. 

    Rewinds are super light, you can't go wrong money wise vs. wheel combo.

  4. Mark I figure there's nothing you haven't done or have happened to you. Your eyes tell a story I only wish I could see. Kathy's do too! It takes one to know one just scratches the surface. I'll always be thankful you two are part of my life.

    You've done a lot of living my friend. :beer:

  5. Whoever has the middle Vision is the coolest hands down or up. Depends on your riding. Helmets and pads are life changing nowadays. I'm scarred from ear to toes from those damn things. Motorcycles were way worse.

    Personally I like "kick and goes" now. They're great for the mailbox.

  6. Yeah get them local so if the pin doesn't line up. 280s are okay from everything I've read, it's the 240s that need modifying or big bucks from Nissan.

    I wore my Vans all the way through then put Shoe Goo on them. They were not allowed in my Mom's house and I immediately had to go sit on the edge of the tub and wash the stank off. Chuck Taylors too but I liked Van HI 8s.

    Vaurnets and Members Only jackets. Guaranteed poon tang! LOL

    Still got mine!

  7. I think I got them from amazon.com for a lot cheaper. Stop Techs I think and they do stop on a dime. No squeaking either, just like you say. 

    Another proven by me thing is no brake dust with ceramic pads. My wheels are always shiny. Ceramic, it's not just for high heat coating. 👍

  8. Oh I love heating pads! I've been wanting to get a heated blanket like from my childhood but the research I've read says they're 2 different animals. The small pads get much hotter and work way better.

    Maybe 10 would cover my bed and add the heat I need?

    Hope you feel better Charles.

    This humidity is drawing me down to nothing. I'm sure you too.

  9. You can find them cheaper looking for 4 wheeler accordion boots. The stainless bands for those cv boots are the way to go too. I've been down this road, believe me.

    Motorcycle shops have that stuff but it's higher than a giraffes arse. I bought mine off the www.com

  10. Joking around here, you all know me by now.

    After dealing with Xfinity and Roku's "make it impossible to watch but charge the hell out them anyway" attitude I hope I get covid. My family will sleep better knowing I didn't go bat $^!# crazy and handle things myself. LOL

  11. For what it's worth I've only replaced outers on my Zs as part of of refurbishing the steering racks. My '72 drives like it's on a rail, straight without any shake and that's the OE inner tie rods. I will add it's low mileage car however so take that into consideration.

    Mine is a once monthly driven car too so I didn't replace the inners. I think you can spend money elsewhere like new rotors, calipers and SS short lines on all 4 corners. I went with drilled and slotted rotors plus ceramic pads, new bearings and all that stuff. Very happy with the results too.
