  1. seo troll..............

  2. That may help something though I'm not sure what but it won't relieve the fuel pressure.

    Old Air A/C kit

    I'm not even sure that unit would fit under an S30 dash.
  4. Doubt that he'll hear you. Those were his only three posts on this site and he hasn't been here in almost six months.
  5. It that the place that Roger ran? I beileve that's actually Mayrville rather than Marysville. Really sad to hear. He helped me quite a bit with parts for the 810 coupe I had. Some of the parts unique to that vehicle are more difficult to find than Z parts.
  6. I always though it was "Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way if they get angry they will be a mile away and barefoot."
  7. I've worked on both types and, actually, the earlier type that would be stock for a 1973 240K would work fine if properly rebuilt. It's basically the same unit used the non North American market early S30 and here beginning with the North American market 1974 260Z through the 1978 280Z. I never noticed much, if any difference between the two performance wise.
  9. That appears to be a 'mist jet' type compressor. Nissan didn't utilize that type until 1979. A 1973 would have had a 'swash plate' type compressor which would be visually distingushable by the side cover which the one in your video does not have.
  10. The compressor used on that AC system wasn't available in 1973 plus it has a condensor mounted electric fan; not stock. Looks great, however.
  11. Except that the OP hasn't been here since May of 2009 so he isn't likely to benefit from the answer.
  12. Those look like 280ZX aftermarket 'NACA' ducts (scroll down to part #95-950:
  13. What exactly does that mean? No such thing as a 'turbo s30' car and I rather doubt that he would really have put a T5 in it.......
  14. Well, yes and no. What you're trying to say is "Without further ado." 'Ado' means 'fuss or concern' while 'adieu' is French for 'farewell'. Looks like a nice 73. I owned a 70 and 72 in that color 'back in the day'.

    1978 280z

    With no pictures and the description you gave.....maybe 200 bucks. That is to say that a lot more info is needed.
  16. Not sure that there is a remedy for that. On another note, the option to ignore an individual member's post has probably been used with much higher frequency since sometime in December 2011 until now than any other time period in the past......
  17. The dashpot was only on the manual trans cars.
  18. I believe that would be the 'Performance Chart' on AC-57. The reason I say that is beacuse I have that page printed out and on the wall above my workbench. It along with the chart for the 810 I used to own weren't in the database I use. Anyway, pressures are only a part of the story, however, and should only be used as a general guideline. That chart also takes humidity and ambient temperature into consideration; factors which are as important if not more so than suction/discharge pressures. I use a charging machine which has a thermometer and a hygrometer on it and I charge by the recommmended system refrigerant weight rather than pressure. When I do put gauges on the system after charging it with the machine, the pressures are within the figures shown on that chart or the chart for the particular vehicle's sytem I'm working on. Using the machine it's 'one and done' while charging with cans or even refrigerant cylinders and gauges can be somewhat trial and error or hit and miss if you don't have a way to factor in temperature and humidity.
  19. I've actually had caps with good o rings hold the pressure that would have otherwise escaped through a leaky valve. ZCurves, how did you arrive at the 10 to 1 ratio? Generally, low side should be about 40°+/- 5, and 10 times that for the high side would be way too high.
  20. You didn't wedge the tensioner? If not, you're going to have to pull the front cover.
  21. I have two IAPCO cap and rotor sets for 79 and up 810/280ZX and a used K and N 33-2010 air filter that would need to be cleaned and oiled. It fits 75-78 stock 280Zs, 77-80 810s as well as many other Nissans. Yours for postage.
  22. That pales in comparison to his opening up a 9 year old thread to imform three of our Australian members of something they werent actually discussing. The most recent visit from any of those three guys was in September 2010.........
  23. Probably need to combine this thread with the other one or kill one of them........
  24. I was and still am more into jazz/R&B then I was into Mitsubishi commercials but do I recall the singer. Randy Crawford has a wonderful voice. She was somewhat popular in the aforementioned genre both here in the U.S. and in Europe beginning in the mid 70s. The song 'Street Life' which she sang with the jazz group 'The Crusaders' around 1979 or 1980 IIRC would probably be her most succesful release. She toured with them in Europe as well as being the 'Most Outstanding Performer' at the 1980 Tokyo Music Festival which is quite an achivement within her genre. That's likely how she caught the attention of whomever was responsible for the Mitsubishi commercial.
