  1. There is no perfect. Those cars come out of factories and aren’t perfect in reality. Your car will be a reflection of you, your efforts, your sweat. That makes it special in my opinion. Keep it up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Got a replacement on its way from Ebay $39. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks Cliff..great point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Dave, I tend to agree with you. Now I need to find one because they appear out of stock at all the typical Z retailers. If anyone wants to sell an extra or knows where one is available for sale let me know. I’ll start digging. All stop....for now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. So, I’ve installed the oil tube pickup. I took some pics to share. It looks like a tight fit but still no obstruction I can see. As you can see in the pic its darn close to the oil drain plug. I’d guess it’s about 1/4-3/8” away from the threads on the drain. What do you all think? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks. Actually, hadn’t pulled the trigger yet on a new set. I’d be happy to accept a donation and add it to my beer deficit I owe you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks Cliff, much appreciated. BTW, If you or anyone else on here has the 6 bolts that mount the flywheel to the crank...I need a set. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Cliff, thanks for the pics. That pan is the ZX pan in your pics. You can tell bey the shape of the pickup opening. Its more curved than the Z. See my pics of the two side by side above. The fit seems fine. Didn’t feel it hitting anything and didn’t require any force to get the pan to sit flush. I don’t think it will be a problem. At least I hope, I’ve spend few hours removing rust and grime on that pan and put a fresh coat of POR-15 on it . Looks like new. Also did the harmonic balancer while I had all the stuff out.

  9. I’m not following you ZH? Should it not fit? I bolted the pickup on the the oil pan fit on just fine. Don’t think it was rubbing on the pan but the pickup might be close to the oil drain plug. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. CO, mine were a little tight, but eventually broke free, I was worried I might strip the head. Try and 1/4” impact driver with an extension Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I checked figment and all goes together fine. The back opening is about and inch further on the ZX. I can’t see inside to verify but I think it will be okay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I saw that but also read that only the turbo had a different one. Read it on HybridZ. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. According to Zcardepot all of these pickups are the same but I don’t necessarily think that’s any sort of verification. https://zcardepot.com/products/oil-pump-pick-up-tube-new-240z-260z-280z-280zx Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Okay, so I need to by a new sump pick up Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Awesome, so not a factor on my 77 body. I don’t have power steering obviously. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
