  1. Sounds like a loose connection or a bad solenoid Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  2. The brake booster looks crazy. What year is that Z? Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  3. I ordered one pin yesterday, hoping I can properly remove the other one . If I do mushroom it though , I will definitely be in contact. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  4. Ok! That sounds great. From what I can tell the front and rear insulators On the 240s are identical. I think il do that and use the spacer. The driver side insulator is in good shape, so I would only be replacing the passenger side, but I want the same ride height. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  5. Whelp, I removed the spindle pin from the lower control last night ( don't use an air chisel if you wish to reuse the spindle ) , and my strut fell to the ground! After further investigation, the Strut Insulator rubber is cracked clean in half. I have read forums, called auto parts stores, and searched the various online Z-car stores, with no finds for the rear. I am going to pull an Insulator from a part vehicle I have , but I don't have high hopes for its condition. Does anyone know of an aftermarket source for the Rear Strut Insulators ? Good news though, I finally got the Front Suspension is done! wheels mounted and all! (I`ll attach a photo of the destroyed spindle and the broken Strut insulator)

  7. Pull the blower motor and valve is behind it. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  8. The complete A/C system was removed by a previous owner. And I have the windshield out and the dash out, so wasn't bad. You will to pull the blower motor Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  9. Pulled the heater core and it had a positive test! Now time to send my core off. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  10. Yep! 200$ I think il go with the rebuilt one. And I may be able to provide an additional core from my 76 280z parts car. See if they will cut me a deal! Thank you very much though, I always forget about that site. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  11. I forgot to add, my car is 1978 Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  12. . Hey guys, I have replaced the heaterhose tubing that protrudes from the firewall, but that was not the cause of the leak. I am assuming this part ( part in photos) is a heater water temp sensor . Question is where can I find a new one?? I found a rust hole in the flood pan and am 99% sure this leak is the cause. The leak from this valve is a steady drip even while not running. Any help or advice is most welcome, as I am pretty much stuck atm. Thanks! Cody Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile

    1978 Radiator

    BTw I talked to a guy with Napa Auto parts today, and I'm I think they have a couple of OEM radiators for around 365$ (not for me price wise) , but those of you who want that complete car. it is a Nissan radiator and the flanges match.. I really think they have a couple of gems !

    Yea, I think that is the safer bet too, you can look at what your buy before leaving the store. I just called Autozone and a new one is $179.99 (Advanced Auto $248.00+12.00 shipping fee). So that is the plan moving forward. I find it easy to get caught up in all of the online Z stores and Ebay listings and forget to just check with local suppliers lol! Thanks, Zed Head!
