    #6 Z owned...Picked this beauty up in Virginia two weeks ago, clean car, just replaced the struts this weekend (KYB) but other than that, it's very clean. Love those BRE style weels (Americian Racing). Headers, 72 carbs 4spd.- It even has factory AM/FM raido that works!

    Hi All, well here's some additional pics of her. She's doing real good these days. Put a new starter on and new battery cables. Check out my website http://mike-foreman.tripod.com/260Z/index.htm

    13b rotary on a Datsun 240z

    The Z doctor in Roanoke VA did it with a 240 and a NA rotary. Then went up to a turbo rotary. It screamed!!!! It was way too fast! This is also back in 96...Rob Robinson built it (who worked for Z doc) and they could point you in the right direction.

    Early 260Z FOR SALE!

    Hi, I have a really nice 260 for sale. If you go to: http://mike-foreman.tripod.com/260Z/index.htm you will find more information on the car. It's a clean car, and I'm asking 3500, which I believe is a very reasonable price for the condition of the car. Located in Charlotte, NC.

    Rocker Arm off, smoking engine!

    Question, my motor was smoking I looked at the plugs and #3 was covered with oil, all others looked good. I found that the rocker arm for the intake was completely off the valve spring!!! So, why would oil leak down and should I pull the head and get it checked out? What are your thoughts? Burned Valve? Rings can't be washed out because intake was closed...Help!!

    Rocker Arm off, smoking engine!

    I pulled the head, ordered a new cam from motorsport...the springs seem to be ok, but a few of the valve seats were worn and one was completely loose-fell off when disassembled (valves). New pads, rocker arms and a new valve job...hoping to get it back together next week. I suspect there was some valve float and improper adjustment, but I am taking care of all the top end for now. The bottom end 'seems' to be in good shape...although I would like to match the E88 head to a L28 block this summer

    Purchased for 2500. Very good deal in the condition it's in.

    What do you think of the new 350 z?

    Ok, the people at Nissans design center have way too much IKEA furnature, because the interrior came out of someones living room. Way too contemporary and theres no flow to the cockpit. If you look at the interrior pics from R&T, there is some void space behind the instrument cluster- final designs will be interesting...Also no one mentioned on this forum about the front of the car. Isn't that the ugliest front you have seen on a sports car? I was comparing a 240 w/the 350 and although a 240 has all that opening in the front it 'works'. It looks like some big mouth on the 350Z, and the headlights could use some work too. Sorry all, but it's too bad Nissan couldn't have given the body to Pinafarina and let em mold a piece of Art. I can see the aftermarket body panels come out and look 10x better as soon as the car hits the streets? What are your thoughs?

    Interrior-all stock
  16. I just bought a early 74 260. The struts were shot, so I replaced them this weekend. The car looked lowered, but I wasn't sure if the previous owners cut the springs or what. I pulled them out and found Yellow springs behind the krylon paint job they had. Any idea who makes or made yellow springs? The car sits at 24 inches from ground to top of fender well. Thanks

    Six Carbs

    I got two set's of Mukuni carbs -8 carbs total from a motorcycle junkyard, they gave them to me...I was playing with the idea of bolting them up to a Z as they had the right CC displacement...chickened out though. Never seen anyone do it, but it would be very cool. We have a 66 Honda w/4 Mukuni carbs and it sounds beautiful.
