  1. @Patcon when you are done and an expert, come up to Chicago! I got a z that could use some love and can arrange for unlimited beer of your preference. 🙂 Seriously, coming together nicely!
  2. The hypothesis we had when messing around with it was that it might be to keep dirt/grime out of the bushing/bushing holder that is behind it. Mine came with on on RHS too.
  3. You know me Zed, I love to know the "Why".
  4. Any idea the. Pros/cons of that option? I get a little clunking from my diff and would love to reduce it, though I would be a little worried about vibration coming into the chassis.
  5. Thanks Steve! You are a hero. Had the the same idea with the snap ring pliers, just haven’t been able to find my set haha. Will give another look tomorrow morning and if I can’t find them, I will try the needle nose again.
  6. Exactly, thanks Dan. I tried using the screwdriver but no luck. Do I need to do screw drivers on either side? Is there a tool I can buy that makes it easier?
  7. So sorry, had it uploaded but must have deleted it. Blue one at the center of the screen
  8. Anyone have any advice on how to get this blue connector out from the passenger side wiring harness holder? I have been working on this for 20 minutes or so but I can’t get it out. I tried using a set of needle noise plyers to get play in the plastic, but it’s pretty rigid. Pretty sure I am going to destroy it getting it out. Any advice? Is there a tool for this?? -muze
  9. Hey Guys, Got most of the wiring undone in the engine bay and am almost ready to send this thing off to paint. Two questions: 1. What is the best way to get this harness through the firewall? Or is it easier to pull the connectors in the cabin through the other way? Haven’t started trying to take the old rubber seals off yet because I am sure they are going to disintegrate the moment I do. Also, do they make replacements for these or is there a good substitute? 2. Any idea what this vacuum line goes to? And can I remove it and reinstall it from here? Or will it require removing the dash to reinstall?
  10. Sorry for the delay in response guys, baby was sick for a couple of days. This is perfect. Will let you know how it goes this week!
  11. Hi Guys, Stripping my 280Z to send it out for paint. Last thing on my list is removing the brake lines and brake booster from the engine bay. Two quick questions: 1. Are there any any issues with storing brake lines empty for 6-8 months? If yes, is there a way to remove the engine bay lines and cap downstream? If no, is the best way to drain to open a bleeder on one of the wheels and then pump the brakes till dry?
  12. I do like a good snuggle. But I imagine my wife might be a little frustrated sharing the bed with something else and its been a while since I slept on the floor. 😛 Its pretty clean now but I will probably deploy the hair dryer method. Worse case the shop I occasionally work out of has a few barrels of barrels of Iso for parts washing, so maybe I can grab a gallon when I'm there next.
  13. @Zed Head yeah, I haven't yet run into any overheating issues (knock on wood). Was going to take my gas tank to a rad shop and get a quote on the recoat so I can take the radiator at the same time. For cleaning it out, I think I remember someone mentioning to rinse it with isopropyl alcohol to dry up any remaining water and then cap it. Does that sound right?
  14. I still have the original fan and fan shroud which I was planning to put back on, but now that I need to replace the radiator, I am open to other options. Would the alternative be to switch to electrical fans? Or is a shroud not necessary with the copper/brass setup?
  15. So I was putting my parts in storage to make space for breaking down the engine and I found some previously repaired damage to the radiator that I didn't see before. There wasnt any visible igns of leaking or rust when I pulled it or in the coolant, but it looks pretty rough. Three questions: 1. This thing is junk right? 2. Assuming it is junk, anyone have a recommendation for a drop in replacement? Saw there are a few 3 rows from champion and mishimoto that don't look too crazy assuming they don't require fab to mount. 3. In the very unlikely chance that it is not junk, should I fill it with something for storage?
