    s30 NOS quarter panels

    Before this thread gets nasty. The op posted photo's of a set of 280Z quarters. They are quarters for a 280Z or am I missing something. No recess or indentation for the 240Z bumpers. The 240Z quarter recess around the bumpers could be transplanted to these. The section around the bumpers is generally less rust prone, I beleive.

    s30 NOS quarter panels

    In the original post are two 280Z quarters. Which year 280Z? They changed about half way through the 280Z series. They might have been when they changed the bumpers. Not really fare comparing them with 240Z quarters. I don't know what 280Z quarters are worth, but they probably won't fetch as much as 240Z panels. Won't be far behind them in price either. Can you read anything on the white label on the last photo? Just because it's black, doesn't guarantee it's nos. Still look really neat. Goodluck with your sale.

    Yeah, They often use that tar as a form of sound deadening and spray it everwhere.

    Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    Supercheap auto. Who ever thought of that name. Everytime I drive past one of their stores, augh. Give me Repco or Auto one for a name anyday. Btw. Nice build Jeff.

    1977 dizzy internal part identification

    I don't know if there is any truth to it, but I have read somewhere that it stabilises timing when the mechanical advance is just starting to move. I would have thought the springs would have the same effect, but maybe theory is different in the field.

    Thank you Classic Z Car Club

    It was a nice discount. Maybe the guys from MSA can gives us an update. @James@TheZStore to see what they have to say.

    Free: Early 1974 260Z 4-Speed Transmission

    I would be very interested, but not for the shipping. It's oversized and heavy. All I'm looking for is a front section for my 71C I want to mod for my L28. I have a spare cross member already modified and an early 70 propellor shaft. Just need the bellhousing.
  11. Yes, I have seen this before. Wasn't on this Zed I have now. The crack was between the pivot ball and the top vinger going to the thust bearing. It would flex and the peddle felt like the system had air in it. Bled and bled the system, even changed the master and slave cylinders before we found.

    Maxima emergency brake brackets.

    Thanks for all the info Chickenman. You see some upgrades and you read comments like "It was a pita", but they don't elaborate much further than that. Maybe because they want to move on or don't see the need to.

    Maxima emergency brake brackets.

    Wow, That is hard to tell apart without having them side by side. Such a shame you're stuck with all this R&D for an aftermarket upgrade. Did you measure the distance between the bolt centers? Would be a nice refference for others when they fall in this rabbit hole. Maybe even write a short technical article over these issues. If they sell calipers for this upgrade it would be nice if they drill out the bracket 0,80". Or they could offer it as an option. They make the adapter bracket to fit the caliper to the S30 axles and let you figure the rest out yourself. A simple instruction leaflet with info on these "issues" would be nice.

    inner hatch weatherstrip

    Im using the KIA sportage seal on the hatch and doors. I manage to get in in without cutting on the hatch. They need to be cut for the top back corner on the doors. They work fine and passed the garden hose test. I have never had my Zed in the rain. They were only $37.50 + $7,50 shipping to the netherlands for all three.
  15. I can remember in Australia in the mid eighties, holden used the Nissan RB30E and the RB30ET with the 4 speed jatco automatic (Nissan code 4N71B). The were known for using oil through the modulator valve. You couls very wel have this problem. Easy to check it. Pull the steel tubing from the modulator valve and check if it has any oil. It should be dry. You could buy a sports kit for the automatic to make it a more performance transmision. The datsun guys use to use the kits too. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Commodore-VL-4N71B-4-Speed-Automatic-Transmission-Vacuum-Modulator-Non-Turbo/322484179317?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D52946%26meid%3D4327a240619b4a2e9d10680aaba0be2f%26pid%3D100623%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26mehot%3Dlo%26sd%3D222255979018%26itm%3D322484179317&amp;_trksid=p2047675.c100623.m-1
