  1. That is a mild advance curve, usually that would be up at 34-37 by 3000 rpm.
  2. It will be very interesting to see the leak down results and to tear down the head, 15,000 miles is just broken in, a mystery waiting to be solved.
  3. That is pretty bad, you definitely win the award if you can bring that one back.
  4. That's my new wallpaper for the next month, gorgeous. Gotta love a deep dignified blue.
  5. ^ Agree, the rubber of the original insulator is not very compress-able, it's really there for vibration control. Can't see how the new unit is going to improve handling or anything for that matter. A thin disc of polyurethane will hold up better than thin rubber but won't help the vibration much.
  6. That's a nice looking Z. Interesting car stand, kind of a gear cranked teeter totter, did you buy it or make it?
  7. https://www.bbc.com/sport/formula1/46781936
  8. Speed bleeders have worked very well for me for years, some times it is hard to find someone else to pump the brake pedal and speed bleeders make it a one man operation.
  9. Some pics would be very helpful, how are the rockers, are they in good shape or rusted out? If the rockers are good bracing isn't needed. If the front seat support is good shape you can always just drill out the spot welds holding it to the floor pan but leave it attached to the trans tunnel and the inside rocker, that's lots of support.
  10. Do you have any other info on this car? Thanks
  11. Damn that crank is pretty, it's even aerodynamic on the edge of the balance weight to cut the air/oil. Don't even want to think of how much that set you back.
  12. Dry sump, ooooh that aint going to be cheap.
