  1. An old cool trick is to slit the hose and hold the hose/barb in boiling water for two minutes. The rubber will swell and pull away from the barb. Just did it on my 78 with factory hoses.
  2. Not sure I’ve heard or seen that done before. I’d like to see how they would attempt that.
  3. Sorry, must have misread your post.
  4. I bought the entire drive train. Drive & half shafts. I do need a different mustache bar though.
  5. Probably will give it a try. Currently has the r180 3.54 ratio. I’m converting the automatic over to manual finally. Dave, are the diffs easy enough to have checked out other than replacing the ears as well? The parts car is a 83 ZX.

  7. So do you have any complete sets or just the corner peices
  8. This is Great information. Now I need to find a good trans shop here in central Florida to go through it before I drop it in. Converting an automatic to manual. I found a complete drive train from a 83.
  9. Recently found a close ratio 5 speed from a 83 ZX. I understand it’s a “FS5W71B” transmission. Searching for a rebuild kit with synchro’s. I’ve found kits for suffix models “C” & “E” etc. but none referencing “B”. I hear Transtar is reputable but not having any luck finding a kit. Any information would be much appreciated.
  10. What are the chances of finding the center section only to complete the set. I’m transforming my 280.
  11. Check out local radiator repair shops. Just had mine done and turned out great. Make sure they coat it after cleaning. Most of the “old school shops” sill do it.
  12. I have a question on the same subject except I’m removing a AT from my 78 280Z with a r180 diff. Replacing it with a close ratio 5spd. Pairing it with the R200 from a 83 280ZX. Can I use the same drive shaft and half shafts from my 78? I heard I need to change the mustache bar as well.
  13. Do you still have the transmission? Do you know what it came out of?
  14. Just joined the forum. 78 280Z Has-been garaged over 10 years. Running extremely rich the last time it ran. Just pulled it out and removed the tank for cleaning. Fear many of the injection components will not function any longer. Other than injectors any thoughts. I have the FSM. Owned the Z since 1984.
