  1. Ever since I bought my 260z my tach has decided it has never wanted to work. Being that my car is an auto, it hasn't been too much trouble until now. However, a recent decision to attempt a manual swap and my general annoyance growing, I have decided to fix it. The issue initially seemed to be a connection issue, as the tachometer would occasionally come back to life mid drive and decide to work perfectly for me, apparently at random times. I took the dash off, cleaned all the tachometer connections, and reassembled everything. While the tach was out I tried my best to bench test it, with various methods, and couldn't seem to find a way that worked. The tach still works occasionally, but not too often. Before I continue ripping things out and go as far as to replace the tach, does anyone have any wisdom or prior experience to share with me. Thanks
  2. I'm about to do a partial rebuild of my E88 260z and I was wondering what is your stance on replacing valve springs if the engine is internally stock well maintained. I already plan on doing a full disassembly and inspection to the head components, but should I plan on replacing the valve springs as a matter of preventative maintenance or not? Thanks

  5. Mine is actually an early 260z with the large phillips head screws
  6. Recently on my '74 near bone stock 260z I discovered a slight pinging noise from near cylinder 5 or 6. Opened the valve cover and found that the oil sprayer had recently been through some trauma and one of the major lines was bent and all 4 section's joints had failed, so I'm sure it wasn't even spraying oil properly anymore and the obvious worry is still there that a joint will give out entirely and I'll find out quickly how well a cylinder head can stand up to flying metal. Anyway, my question is, does anyone know of fabricating their own sprayer because all the ones online are 150+ dollars which is a bit much. Or should I start looking at internally drilled aftermarket cams and all the valve train upgrades needed for those (something I was considering in the future anyway)? Thanks
