  1. PM'd Also do you have any 240/260z bumpers? Looking to retro fit my 280z with a set of slim bumpers.
  2. Hey All, I'm inviting anyone who would be interested in going to Cars and Copters in Plymouth Ma. Its a great event for a great cause, the Jimmy Fund. Its a $10 donation per car at the entrance and the gates open at 9am. The event is hosted at Plymouth Municipal Airport on Sunday 9.15.13. I think it would be great for a bunch of us get together and drive over together. I'll definitely be heading over but if anyone is interested in meeting up before hand they would be more than welcome. Its rare to see our cars in the northeast and even a rarer sight to see a group.

  4. Hey Zed Thanks for the info Update photobucket account http://s1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb441/psito/77%20280z%20Coupe%20Suspension/ The thing is the rim itself is currently hitting my 76 280z 2+2 strut tower yet it didn't at all on my 77 280z coupe? I'm just wondering if there were any differences between the 76 280z 2+2's and 77 280z coups suspension wise for the wheel hub and strut tower. The new rim has not been changed and had the same tire combination on it then as it has now. As you can see from the pictures the rim did bolt on and could rotate freely on the 77 280z coupe. I may run spacers but I would like to avoid doing so. If instead I could just swap out a hub or something I'd rather do that.
  5. Hey All Sorry to thread jack but I have a question. I have a set of wheels that I want to put on my car Wedssport toc005 17x7 +40 offset. Now on my previous Z (1977 280z Coupe) I remember mounting them and them actually fitting. I didn't lower the car and drive it I just mounted them to test fit. I remember I was able to spin the wheel without any obsructions. Now I want to put the same set of wheels on my 1976 280z 2+2 but I can't even bolt them in, they hit the strut tower. My question is are the hubs or strut towers different between a 1977 280z coupe and a 1976 280z 2+2? Here are some pictures for reference. I have also been looking at those spacers on ebay... They sort of scare me though as how they're mounted... but if you guys have been running them for awhile? I dunno maybe I'll give them a try. The wheels I'm thinking of mounting are these Wedssport TC005's Weight 17x7.......13.9-14.6lbs 17x7.5... 14.2-15.0lbs The wheels are 17x7 +40 offset. Too bad they weren't 17x8 with lower offset that would be perfect... The reason why I'm somewhat set on trying to get these to fit is they are my friends and hes sold his car so hes sort of stuck with them. He also wants to sell them to me for cheap and as a Forged rim these things are really light. These are a mockup mount on my previous 280z. Now that I think about it they actually fit on my previous 280z coupe... wth? Although I never lowered the car though so it may have have hit the strut then... I know now on my 76 280z 2+2 the inner wheel definitely hits the strut and won't even bolt on... I definitely remember the rim bolting on correctly and me being able to spin the rim without any trouble on the 77 coupe... Here is the driver side front where I mounted the rim on my previous 77 280z coupe What exactly is different? Do you guys notice anything aftermarket besides the springs? or is it all stock? 1977 280z coupe Heres a close up of the strut tower 1977 280z coupe and here is a closeup of the hub 1977 280z coupe Set of pics here if anyone is interested in looking further http://s1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb441/psito/77%20280z%20Coupe%20Suspension/ I don't have any pictures of me test fitting the wheels on my 76 280z 2+2 or the suspension. I'll try to get some. The only thing I'm weary about using spacers is they supposedly make a car drive badly (anyone care to chime in if this is true?) and I don't want it flying off at speed...
  6. So I got my fuel pump over the weekend, I'm going to install it over the next few days but quick question first. People who installed a aftermarket fuel pump while still keeping the original fuel tank, did you guys setup a pre fuel pump filter/screen like the old stock pump had? The previous owner said the owner before him had boiled and cleaned the tank but I can't check that and I'm paranoid if I don't run a pre screen/filter I'll ruin my brand new $100 pump. The stock fuel pump had the screen built into it so I can't use that, what fuel filter/setup did people use if they did run a pre pump filter? Any and all recommendations and info appreciated. Should I even run a pre fuel pump fuel filter? I have a walbro 255 gsl392
  7. Hey all I hate to not get a chance to introduce myself before jumping in and asking for help, but long story short I'm a new proud owner of a 77 280z with an f54 p79 motor. I'll do what I can to give a brief overview. (I'll do a full detailed intro later on) So I recently bought a 1977 280z with a 83zx f54block p79head motor, 83 zx5speed with turbo clutch/flywheel. (I finally got a Z!!! I've waited many years for this ) Its actually this car http://www.zcar.com/cars_sale_1970-83_240z_260z_280z_280zx/1977_280z_nice_clean_car_lots_mods._899197.0.html My original problem was the fuel pump was not shutting off when I turned off the car and took the keys out of the ignition. Now the car won't start at all and the the fuel pump doesn't prime or even turn on. I did all the checks to try to get the fuel pump to pump but no dice. That was my original problem I've narrowed it down to a bad fuel pump, the relays click so I don't think its that. My question now is so I'm getting a replacement walro 255lph GSL329. At the same time I have future plans for a turbo swap or turboing my current motor so I was looking to upgrade to the walbro 255 GSL392 in line pump http://www.summitrac [nofollow]...ts/VPN-GSL392/. The question is will the walbro 255 work with the stock FPR and setup on my current car as I don't have plans to swap or turbo the motor immediately? Also as far as wiring goes will the walbro 255 wire right in? or will I need to run additional/other wiring? Would I also need any additional hardware etc? or is it a pretty straight forward swap. I see alot of people run the walbros on ls1/upgraded turbo motors or sr's rbs etc but I'm not sure if it would overflow the stock motor (Not that my motor is stock its a 83 f54 p79 with a small cam). Any input would be really appreciated! Also anyone know any good Z shops in or around Massachusetts? It would be nice to know of a good place that I can bring my car to when worse comes to worse. Thanks Pat
