  1. Which is why I only needed the bottom peice and/or driveshaft, yet they are different lengths and diameters. I have a standard distributor to use, I am not running the turbo ECU, wiring, or distributor itself. Or of course the aforementioned oil pump driveshaft which I was trying to avoid before
  2. Anyone have one? I have an F54 turbo block (1982) and I'm trying to get it running NA (head is shaved). I have a 77 280Z distributor and an 82 turbo distributor and was hoping to get clever with the base peices, however the distributor drive shafts are different diameters so that plan is out the window without serious grinding/cutting. Alternative would be a 280ZX NA distributor which seem hard to find for under a million bucks.
  3. If you need it, shoot me an email. I am in 94080 (bay area, CA)
  4. F54 either has flat tops and is injected, or will be dished and turbo (and injected), the F54 is just the block, it does not state engine configuration. I would not advize a carburated turbo.
  5. Thats exactly what is great about those cars, serious stick to the pavement handling. Long, low and WIDE is how I like them.
  6. Have a turbo engine in the car now, so I no longer need these. I have a variety of $70 or so worth of jets to go with them, I can specify if needed, jets are pretty new so numbers are very easy to read on the sides. Manifold adapters are included, as well as 2 adjustable links for the carbs. I have the air cleaners as well, they are fairly clean, but some nuts/bolts are missing (bought the car like that) and I never got around to a hardware store to replace. They hold down fine with the hardware that is there, but for the picky some new hardware would pretty them up a bit, and some chrome polish should clean up the air cleaner assembly a bit. I am in 94080 http://maps.lycos.com or I can ship them for probably about $14, email me if interested or I can provide a # if you have more questions.
  7. Rebuilding to me is basically all new parts, overhall would be prefered to me if the bores check out, new rings/bearings/seals yada yada and thats it. Bores should be checked and then cleaned up with a glaze breaker so the rings will seat, its a budget rebuild basically and on most engines should be fine.
  8. Resonation is a sound thing, I think you mean regulator. The voltage should raise when you raise the RPMs past a certain point, probably around 1000-1500 or so is good enough to test. Is your battery dying on you after driving with lights on or ? What are the symptoms you have that you are troubleshooting the alternator in other words.
  9. Their spelling drives me nuts, the wheels look kind of nice though.
  10. Actually the early US 5 speed should match the 240Z 5 speed, I believe this is correct according to the Haynes I have, this would be a .864 5th gear. I would personally shoot for a 15-17" wheel and no more, I have 15x7" and they are pretty nice overall, but would eventually like a 16x8-10" or possibly a 17x10" if I could get one at a reasonable price point (insert laughter here). Take into consideration going this big requires fender flares and coil overs, not exactly cheap, but for road racing I want the ultimate in grip. Right now with 195/60 15" I dont have nearly enough tire to hold the brakes, otherwise the car handles very very nice.

  12. www.ccwheel.com/ Wheel sets are around $1600 or so, I wouldn't bother with 7" skinnies, try to find something more readily available and cheaper. You can get 7-8" wide Centerlines for around $400.
  13. No offense dude, but you are absolutely positively talking out of your arse. Mesh styled wheels are almost always going to end up stronger, and lighter than other designs. Ricer wheels? I think not, forged and very lightweight for thier strength, and at a good price. Ricer wheels are overweight, totally different offset, and you wont find any that wide either. These are road race wheels and are highly regarded by Porsche owners just as much as us 240Z ricers. Maybe all you do is cruise around in your car and you dont like racing, thats fine, in the meanwhile let us enjoy being fast.
  14. CCW, Complete Custom Wheels. Awesome car, if you dont like it you dont like road racing cars - too bad
