  1. Sometimes you can remove the strut from the shock (as opposed to the other way around) using a hat or large washer, a 2x4, 2 clamps and a hammer.
  2. I'd like to mention that in addition to the race car not having a wedge bolt neither does my street car which has had the Arizona Z Car RCAs installed since 2006 which has not been wire tied or pinned. Freedom of movement is key in suspension parts. Remove the lock pin and rotate the strut and RCA. Put in the pin back in and try again. But hey, if you feel more safe with it there fine.
  3. There is no reason to put the locking pin back in. In fact a threaded rod works just fine instead of a spindle pin. I have the T3 RC arms in my race car which has over 180 track days. The threaded rod that came with the RCA is still working fine and I see no reason that a similar rod couldn't be used in a set of stock arms.
  4. I have never opened a truck 4 or 5 spd. This one has a different fork, gear and has a spring to push the syncro into place.
  5. So, this is a first for me. Has anyone else seen on of these?
  6. The indent also adds strength to the piece.
  7. Thanks. I was hoping it was an analog box and I could trade you for a new digital one I have.
  8. Is it an analog or digital MSD box (6AL)?
  9. I have one but need to verify if it is in working condition....
  10. Bad Dog Parts has been working on several new parts and before they are offered for sale, we need your help getting the fitment dialed in. For these parts we would ship a prototype to a willing Z owner who would trial fit it on their Z and report back to us any modifications or changes required to ensure they fit correctly. In return we would provide a free set for your efforts. Here is a list of our current prototypes: · 280ZX frame rails (coupe and 2+2) · 280Z frame rails for aftermarket floor pans · 280Z optional rear frame rails (for stock and aftermarket floors – similar in design to our optional 240 rears) Note: Pictures of these parts will be posted once the Design Patent application process has been completed. As our rails are made from 13-gauge steel we recommend folks who want a stock thickness rail to get them from Zeddfindings instead. Ours are made for those you have added more HP, torque or drive their cars hard. In addition to these we also have several other parts close to final production fitment in the next 30-45 days: · 7-gauge frame rail prototypes for S13 and S14 drift cars · 280Z seat brackets · Toyota Tacoma (Standard Cab) frame rails reinforcement pieces If you wish to assist us please send an email to: john@baddogparts.com Let us know the part(s) you can test fit and the year of your Z(s).
  11. I believe I have one. More on Tuesday when I get a chance to get back into the shop.
  12. Oil will find a way. Try PB Blaster
  13. Did you verify that the replacement cable moved freely before installing it? Was it longer than the original? Are there kinks or a sharp angle? I hang cable up and pour oil down the inside for a few days. Usually frees them right up.
  14. Some small observations regarding the 75 and 33 BSR cars. 1) very few sponsors 2) chrome front bumpers 3) the rear flares on the 33 (waiting for some more rubber) 4) how low the 510 sits 5) looks like the passenger side rocker has seen an obstacle
