    I’m pulling mine out of my 280 relatively soon along with the matching R180 differential. Car has 138k miles on it. Don’t think my dad ever drove it over 60mph. It’s been in storage for about. 10 years. Shifted fine before it was in put in storage.I’m retrofitting it to a 83zx 5 speed. Speaking of that anyone out there that has pedals and a dust shield for a manual trans please let me know.
  2. Went ahead and removed the sway bar. That helped a lot to gain access. Followed the technique you guys suggested and a little help from Kroil and the shaft is out. 42 years of tight, sounded like they were snapping in two when they broke loose. Quick question, The car is on skates while I’ve been working on it. After removing the diff, Can the vehicle be moved around on skates without putting back the front support. I have Stands under the chassis just to be safe. The front transverse link from what I see doesn’t have any support without it. Trying to do as much cleanup on the suspension as I go.
  3. Is this book still available?
  4. That was the direction I was heading. Sway bar was coming out eventually. Rebuilding the rear suspension with the diff swap. There just has to have been a better design. Appreciate the help...
  5. Having the same issue, 78 280 and the shaft has never been removed. 2nd owner bought it with 18k miles. Open end is just going to round them off. Replacing the diff with a R200. Need some advice from the Forum... Thanks in advance Thought about doing that, just thought there was something I was missing. Truly a poor design. I guess I should be happy there are “D” Heads on the opposite side. I’ll put some kroil on them and give it a shot. Thanks Zed

  7. Dave, I really appreciate your time and effort today. Thanks for documenting today’s events which will come in handy when we revisit the AFM in the future. Once it’s back on the road I believe we will have a better idea on dialing it in. I think you. Accomplished quite a lot today just seeing the car for the first time. At this point as you documented earlier to focus on the gauge issue for now and move on to the drive train swap. Thanks to everyone for the guidance in order to get another Z back on the road. I’m looking forward to the next challenge ahead.

  9. Dave WM has graciously offered to help speed up the process by going over some tuning procedures with me and hopefully getting Her back on the road after a 12 year Z nap....I’m fortunate we live fairly close.
  10. And all the others patiently waiting in line!!!

  12. I’ll go back and check the new thermostat I put in. I’m thinking it was 180 degree. I’ve kept all of my receipts. I’ll dig through and let you know.
  13. Sounds great, I have not tried disabling/injector test. Looking forward to bringing this Z back to the road.
  14. Awesome, I have the full drivetrain from a 83zx. That would be great send me a pm. Have a great day! Oh.. I still need the pedals. I assume I could use the same pedal box. To tell you the truth l haven’t looked.
