  1. Haha yeah, you have the bible ;) Lathe ? Mm ok.. sounds like a coffee LOL , I don't know the English word for " Draaibank "
  2. Allright.. the axles are back under the car, also replaced the front lower ball joints ( pain .. ) , dynamo v belt and transmission oil. The transmission and differential may need a rebuild in the future ( within 5 years ), but for now I will leave it at this, it still works fine, it's not bad. I torqued everything down on the front when the car was on it's wheels ( pushed the suspension a few times before torquing it down, thought it was better this way. I had to kill a socket in the turning bench to fit on the castle nut tight space, so I could torque it down to 70 NM. I will need to get it re-aligned coming week, but then I can drive it again for few more summer months.. ( hope weather will be dry... ) The Mustang I am waiting for the AOD Automatic transmission to come back in a few weeks, and will work from there..
  3. Going to pick up the axles today, planning on having her back on the road next week.
  4. Yes.. parts prices are allready going up ( are pretty high allready ), but that's for most classic cars from the late 60's, early to mid 70's... The older they become, the more costly to maintain. I have a rebuild E31 head laying around, but I notice nobody is willing to pay for it what it's worth.. And I am not giving it away for free either, so she can remain on the shelf
  5. Very nice job you have done there. Lot's of details... Love the work. The hardest part is keeping it clean and looking like that, in here I live in a 4 season's climate, that is having a toll on everything. But I am fine with that, just keep it looking nice, and give it the usual attention and cleaning every year. It doesn't have to be a trailer queen for me.
  6. The Mustang I had problems with the AOD that came from a shop in Florida " they claimed " up to 700hp, well it failed within 200 miles or so when I gave it some real power to it. Oil smelled burned as hell when I drained it.... Car was slipping in drive badly. Tired of sending it back and losing trust in that shop ( bye bye 2 k...$$$), I found a local USA transmission shop that also specializes in high performance, so I am pretty condifent it will work out this time, and the tranny will hold the power. Let's wait and see. Also I did manage to tune the engine a bit more, it needed way more fuel.. and I adjusted the timing curve. Not done yet there, but I need a good AOD first...
  7. I haven't been driving much with the Z lately, the weather just started to clear up in June.. I did adjust the valves ( it was mostly the exhaust valves, which needed adjustement.. ) back to spec. Gave it some new oil and a nissan oil filter. When inspecting the car from underneath I found out the joints from the driveshafts where worn out.. So currently al 3 shafts are at a local rebuild shop. Other things to do are replacing the lower ball joints in the front, and the v belt for the dynamo. Expecting to have her back on the road in 2 weeks or so :) I also fixed to antenna. Nylon cord was broken off..
  8. Now we know how that worked out :O Glad you now have it at a " professional paint shop "...

  11. Not much left in the world I believe of the Nakajima Sakae engine ? They are very rare, also the information about them is limited. I find these WW2 engine technology very interesting. The German DB605 is also very ahead of it's time back in the day with fuel injection... Interesting engines...
  12. @Captain Obvious yeah it's a very good tool, although I had to make a small adapter underneath to make it work with the stock pedestal mount. LSM makes them.
  13. Actually it's tomorrow the 26th February, but I held it yesterday.
