  1. The cheapest and most noticable improvement I have ever made to any of the Z's I have done. It's easy all work is done at the "doughnut"only. Lube up the 4 bolts /nuts. Of Course things are marked B4. Then as with any old threads, Crack it, Tighen it. spray it.wipe it . run it out until it it just seems too much pressure. UH.. Lather rinse repeat..
  2. The white wire on the harness that connects to the volt reg is not making connection thru the connector. Thats the wire that tell the it charge or not.

    Speedo Removal

    I hacksawed across a socket to grab the wing nut
  4. Hey Jimmy, I've got parts and knowledge call me 704.533.2253 Daniel ( in Charlotte)
  5. Its in the guage.There is a bi metal contact in there that acts as a voltage stabilizer. It looks like a set of points. I have had success with cleaning the contacts.
  6. All gauges, interior dog legs rear parts etc. Heat / vent control panel . Arm rest ( even the left side) Nissian comp cross drilled rotors. A lot of 240 factory parts . Call me and make them go away. I did these for years and have since moved to other interest. I am in Charlotte N.C. I'm hoping someone will collect these locally as I don't care for the postage headaches. My phone is 704. 533.2253. My name is Daniel. I do not wish for these parts to be lost but come August 10 if no sales are made they become trash.
  7. Remove the cable(s) from the chokes. Remove your ash tray and put a cloth under the choke pull. Use a coat hanger or what ever to attach the choke cables to the secure/safety latch on the hood . Make sure the cables are higher than the choke pull.Place about 3 inches of drinking straw or whatever tube comes close to a seal around the outer choke cable only using about 1 inch. Wrap that area with duct tape. Fill the 2inch with the lube of your choice. Walk away. Next time you visit your project the cloth under the pull will be nasty. Your cable will be smooth.Not doing this is what caused the pull to break loose from the console.
  8. Hi all, been a while since I visited this site and hope everyone is well. I can't seem to find the article that was around about a year or so ago that listed the various Z car parts and year to build the perfect Zcar. I believe the article was also on Ztherapy. Thanks for your help. Daniel
  9. HI ALL, Been awhile. So many projects so little time. My latest was my wife '90 300 z. It ran great ...until it just quit. This seemed to occur Around 2000 rpms. Turn the key it fires right back up and your gone until the next time. I was pointed by my nissian guys to a wedge looking solid unit at the front of the motor. Seems once there was a recall. I bought the unit from my guys 120.00. It came with a unit and new wiring harness link to multiple( five?)locations. Being that it is the wifes car, and I am SO confident that solid module is not a problem.I only replace the module. NO improvement. Go to my 300z tech. and say fix it please!! He grabs the harness that I didn't replace and wiggles it. Now this part is CLEAN and shiny to the naked eye. Wiggle it and the car revs high, low.. Thus I was indeed correct!! was this morons chant as I handed the man the part that was the other 50% of the repair kit that I had purchased . :stupid: (OH! when you look at it that way :stupid: :stupid:) had been in my tool box all along. These word I humbley admit. We all know better. :stupid: :stupid:
  10. Of course a good/tight belt first. The next place I would go is the car wiring harness to volt reg. connector. A close inspection is required. The connectors attach but not all the pins make contact across. Until the problem returns yours is fine. So a belt check and a inspection/cleaning would be my start.
  11. 70 & 71 had the three piece tranny. I ASSUME thats a type A. 72 and up had a two piece. I ASSUME its B. The three piece had an adjustment on the clutch slave cylinder the 2 piece did not. Slop shifter normally is a 70/71/3 piece issue."While your there". I would replace all the rubber that closes off the tranny from the car. If you can see the shifter to tranny connection the 3 piece looks like a plumbing pipe on top. The two piece is just a small hole.
  12. The ballast resistor is so misunderstood. Its a METAL strip. Stainless in most. Turn the key to start = hot to the point/ car wiring by passes the ballast resistor. Key in normal/ run position= wiring runs thru the ballast. I don't know the pertronics but, You cant just pull the resistor out. Your car would run until your key was released from start to run.
  13. So you changed motors that the carbs were on without resyncing them?
  14. Have you run the engine to "normal temp"? When mines been down for awhile its Grumpy. You may have an air leak on the intake .What was the Swap you did?
  15. Welcome, I agree with Zs-on..(sorry Zs I type real slow) I would have to develop a trust with the car/gauges. The- BRAKE - That light I trust. It has been right more times than wrong. All the other issues don't matter until thats resolved. It should be on when the emer brake is up. That was the warning/bulb test of the day. Emer.Brake down and BRAKE on = brake problem.
