  1. I had a bad fuel pump when I bought my car. Sat foe 18 yrs. I pulled it out and after tapping on it with 12V power applied it all of a sudden began to run. Never had a problem again with it . I also cleaned the screen in it. I agree with getting an OEM pump. They’re actually extremely durable and I heard the aftermarket ones are hit or miss. You need to confirm your are getting 36 PSI to the injectors if it’s still running bad. Most guys buy a $20 inline pressure gauge and install it in the line exiting the fuel filter. It’s a good diagnostic tool also for future issues. Good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Which header is that? MSA? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Cliff, I would have bought your car in a heartbeat. Looked solid. I’m curious to see what you think of this 240z. Part of me wants it to be a bad one so I don’t have to buy it. Getting it home could be a pain in the arse, and my life is pretty busy right now. But when the right car pops up, I’m going to grab it. I’d likely have to sell my 280z because my wife would kill me if I had another car. Looking forward to your findings. Rust is my biggest worry. I do t want a car that requires welding and extensive body work. Mechanical problems I can handle and have no issues there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. No it has one tiny crack he says. Seller comment: “Complete dash out of a 240z. Comes with everything shown in pictures. One small crack and one small indention on the top. See pictures. “ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. If you have a 240z and need a dash. This looks like a nice one. Located in VA, found on FB. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I was telling a guy the other day, I’d be happy to return to the days of no cell phones or internet. Life was better and we teated each other with more respect then. The internet has also become a place for cowards to troll around. It takes all my energy as a parent to keep my kids off these machines! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. What do you mean? I hate FB and only look at the classifieds because it’s a good places to find stuff locally, like CL. Otherwise it’s a mind-suck. The skinny jean millennials with safe spaces are asserting their position in the world. They love FB and anything social media, we can’t win. The cat is out of the bag.

  8. Found this on Facebook. Another Series 1 near Austin, TX. Someone go grab it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I’d grab one from a salvage yard. I see them all the time when I find a Z. I’ll start grabbing them now that I know they’re so expensive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Are the parts you want to clean up badly rusted? Have you considered using a rust converter vice the time consuming process of physically removing the rust? “The first ingredient in common rust converters is tannic acid which reacts with iron oxide (rust) and chemically converts it to iron tannate, a dark-colored stable material. ... The overall chemical reaction converts rust into a stable, black protective polymeric coating that serves as an excellent primer for both oil and epoxy based paints.” If the rust is mostly surface this is a good way to good. Deep or rust thats flaking needs to be removed before using a converter. I have used rust converters on one of my other cars with success. I’ve also used it on my steel garage door 3 years ago and the rust never came back. Just giving you options. There are lots of converter products on the market. My neighbor used POR-15 on the frame of his entire classic car. Came out awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I did the same thing. Capped a PVC pipe and filled her up with thinner. Got the idea from someone on this forum. Worked well for me too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. No title available for the car. NC makes it really really hard to title cars like this . You can’t even get it bonded unless it is road worthy and can pass a state inspection. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yes. The hose on the damper side goes towards the engine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I used the same thing a Cliff. Speaker wire and alligator clips when I was troubleshooting my fuel pump problems. It worked fine. When you said you put 12V on it but it wasn’t a full 12V that’s a bit ambiguous. Probably needs to be pretty close to 12V for it to work. If your pushing 10V it might be a problem. I agree with Zed Head on making sure it is properly grounded. When my fuel pump wasn’t working, I was able to narrow it down to the ignition switch. It worked fine when connected directly to 12V but would work when turning the key. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Gents, As we enjoy this Memorial Day weekend grilling burgers and sipping cold beverages with family in friends wherever you are I wanted to share the story of the sacrifice of one of my closest friends (we were friends for 18 years) who died on 14 Sep 2012 in Camp Bastion, Afghanistan. His name was LtCol Chris “Otis” Raible. He was the CO of a Marine Harrier squadron and died defending his Marines and aircraft from insurgents attacking on the fight line in Bastion. Many men and women have made similar sacrifices serving our country and without their willingness to lay down their lives for our Nation, our way of life would be far different that it is today. Take a moment, raise a glass for those sacrifices and enjoy this holiday. Here the story of the actions that happened that night in Afghanistan and a picture of my friend Otis! https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.gq.com/story/battle-of-bastion-taliban-afghanistan-air-base/amp
