  1. I drove the Z to Road Atlanta today to watch testing for the Mitty. Here's a link to my favorite photos from today: https://photos.app.goo.gl/xZnwaKkdb6aKxSFq7
  2. Well, his kids are home-schooled, and his wife is a pretty tough teacher, so that's not a given.
  3. Well, from my engineering background, I can tell you that P=I^2xR. And as usual, an engineer provides a completely correct answer that doesn't help you resolve the situation at all.
  4. For the fuel pump, the power from the coil is tapped off the yellow wire between the alternator and voltage regulator. I suggest that if you wire a switched source for the fuel pump coil, you also include an inertia switch in the circuit to kill power in case of an accident. The ignition interlock unit uses the black/yellow wire coming off the voltage regulator. When the engine is stopped, it provides a ground for part of the "black box" operation of the unit. Of course, it's a challenge to find a 260Z where the seat belt interlock hasn't been bypassed. Anyway, the VR is providing a path to ground for the unit in addition to the chassis ground that goes to the unit. I'm not sure what would happen if you grounded that wire all of the time. In the FSM it is described as the Engine revolution sensor. See page BE-97. Depending upon the alternator you are using as a replacement, I could probably describe a work around.
  5. I'm guessing it utilizes two floor jacks.
  6. https://www.ebay.com/itm/RETRO-CLASSIC-VINTAGE-RACING-BUCKET-SEATS-BLACK-PVC-MICROSUEDE-W-SLIDERS-PAIR/123461825398?hash=item1cbee5f376:g:39cAAOSwQGhbIB69:sc:UPSGround!48083!US!-1
  7. There should be a ground in the back, on the passenger side, near the taillights. Look for a black wire. You'll need to pull off the back trim panel to find the wiring harness. Look at the mechanical connection and make sure there is not corrosion that would inhibit current flow.
  8. Greg Smith Equipment seems pretty reputable to me. https://www.gregsmithequipment.com/ I have owned this scissor lift for a few years now. https://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Atlas-TD6MR-Portable-Scissor-Lift
  9. Yes, Nissan was involved, probably through the Nissan Heritage Collection, and I would not be surprised if they utilized Chris Karl and the ZCCA network to help with finding the appropriate cars.

  11. If you want to use the old stereo power, look for a blue wire. There are actually two that you could use. One is on a 6 wire connector (stereo), and the other is on a 3 wire connector (antenna).
  12. I know on the 240Z and 260Z the cigarette lighter has constant power. I will check the 78 FSM to see if it's the same. What is the brand and part number of the FAM? There may be something online saying how much power it draws.
  13. When you say that is mounted in the middle of the dashboard, is it replacing one of the 3 gauges? A picture would help.
  14. The white 240Z parked in front of the 370Z is owned by a GZC member. Nissan transported his car to NYC for the auto show. The owner is also being hosted by Nissan. I think there is a good faction within Nissan that supports the Z heritage. It's just a challenge to make the business case work for the bean-counters.
  15. Well, that might reduce the number of scam ads.
