  1. Hey EuroDat, I didn't know what you meant at first and listen to it again. No, that wasn't me sipping cola and burping. 😃 It's the car from shifting gears. Anyways, the ratlle noise has worsen plus it started to vibrate so what I did this weekend was changed one halfshaf with spares I have at a time test drove it. The clunk is gone but it still vibrated after changing both haft shaft. I was going to change the driveshaft but the two spares I have were both short. Going to order the full u-joints and change all of them and see. Could a worned transmission and diff mount make the vibration as well?
  2. Thanks EuroDat. I will double check the U-joints again. I hope i can narrow it down.
  3. I used pry bars to check all of the u-joints and don't see any sort of play.
  4. I put another diff with new gear oil 80W/90 is all i can find when i did it. Went to get 75W/90 semi-syntetic today at a subaru dealer. Got the car on jacks now looking for the culprit. Removed the tires and rear drums and ran the car on all gears. None that i can see but when i spin the rear axel the diff has some gear drag. Is this normal? Checking my other spares and hard to tell just turning by hand.
  5. I was able to capture the rear diff clunk and that sound of the Wheel Of Fortune. I place my cell phone inside the ashtray just above the trans tunnel. The rear diff clunk starting from 1st gear, then the rattle starts more when the car has been driven for a while, you can hear it as soon as I shift to second, third and a bit on fourth up to 40 mph and goes away. Please let me know any feedback. Thanks. 20190627_154403_clunk.m4a 20190627_154403_rattle1.m4a 20190627_154403_rattle2.m4a
  6. No vibrations. Only a semi-loud metal clunk in the diff that I don't like.
  7. I did check underneath again yesterday for any obstruction. I jacked up the rear wheel and spinning it, the only thing I saw the drum brake fins scraping the dust plate. I cleared that and thought that was it. No, it came came back again after driving home. I will probably jack up the rear wheels again safely, start the car and put it in gears to see if I can detect the noise. Just a little scared doing this way though.
  8. It is not constant. It goes away when I press the clutch and the rattle comes back on going straight or turning even shifting to different gear at low speed, goes away when I accelerate. The first time it rattled for a long time was about 10 seconds going uphill cruising around 30 mph. I checked the new diff before I installed it and it was pretty tight and smooth. I opened the old one yesterday to check for any chipped gears and did not see any damage. I have a few spare diffs, how do I know if they are good or dead without opening it? I will try to record the sound when I drive it today.
  9. Thanks site I will look into that. But the rattle is more coming from the back, could it be just resonating towards the rear end?
  10. I'm driving into a dead end, if someone could please help me solve a mechanical issue. I own a stock 1972 240Z, built 12/71 (second owner) for 23 years. I have always maintained it well, a very reliable and always an enjoy to drive. The rear diff have always been making clunking sounds for a few years, until now, a new metal rattling sound, almost sound like the spinning of the "Wheel Of Fortune" but more metallic. I've done some research and I figured I might as well replace the diff since I have a spare. I spent a whole day yesterday to remove and replaced the rear diff with new gear oil, also checked all the U-Joints, any obstruction like E-cable line and bushings all good, after a test drive, I noticed the diff was much better than before (one clunk instead of every shift, lol), figured I have solved the problem! NOT. Then, that metal rattling sound came back (Arrrgghh!!!) only for a few seconds or more on, and off when I pressed the clutch. It doesn't do it all the time, but comes on more when driving under 30 mph but okay to drive on highway without any issues. Anyone out there might have had this experience and solved it? Before looking into dropping the original 4 speed transmission that could be the culprit? Thank you in advance.

  13. What a great deal! and a great Z car! It was waiting for you. I think you will have a lot of fun and found the right project. More pictures too please.
  14. Don't forget the cats too! Merry Christmas everyone!!! Sent from my rotary phone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  15. Great detailed photos. I have some questions to ask: JLPurcell - some pieces are tied together with wires. Is this for grouping them together avoiding sorting later or getting lost? Jfa.series1 - did you do anything with the side light housing socket spring assembly connected with wire? I worked on this piece recently and the spring connection assembly are pre-sealed. Parts with nylon pieces are okay to leave during plating?
