    Well - I don’t know why that is . Try s_finnerty1018@comcast.net
  8. Apply for a new title ! Got a bill of sale and get the car - especially if it’s decent. I got a 1970 that way. I don’t care if I don’t have the original title - ITS MINE ! Your going to have to make concessions to get an early one. I guess I won’t offer my 71 with no title and needing bodywork .

    Interesting early Z on BaT

    It would be a great head for a L24 . Not sure how big the ports can go - I know they are smaller . Great chamber design and square port exhaust .

    The E-30 heads are 37cc Chambers compared to 39-41cc on the E-31 or E-88. I run 37cc chambers on my L24 , but it’s a e88 that has been shaved a bit 😜 I also have significant bore notching which lowers compression . That coupled with a 490/290 cam I have no issues with detonation with 93 octane. The L20 ran dished pistons with those tiny chambers
  11. You should be fine with stock timing

      Have changed phones. My new number is 812-798-2784. Do not have yours. I know you gave me the AC parts ( I think, maybe you didn't, cannot remember), but I think I am going to put AC back in it. Called Vintage Air and they really dont have what I need. Trying to call MSA, no luck yet from them. Just thought if anyone knew you would what the best route is to try and keep it all factory.

    MN -47 cylinder head

    Not really true on header options. A square port header will work fine on this head. It’s going the other direction -square port head to round port header- that doesn’t work. Yes the sweet e-88(E) heads we don’t get here, this is a nice compromise .

    240z floor pan replacement question

    This is why butt welding gets tricky. Unless things are lined up perfect you can find yourself patching in gaps . I would recommend Cleco’s - you’ll wonder how you did without them. I learned my lesson with these panels - only cut off what’s bad on the original panels. Removing all of the old panel all the way to the inner rocker panel is usually not necessary , usually not much rust all the way up there anyway. I didn’t hardly catch this issue when I did mine. It made the floor slightly off level
  15. IMHO - 44 for your engine size . If it was a bigger liter motor , or you were planning on spinning it way up high rpm , then maybe bigger valves . Can you go too big - I doubt it , so no time then the present to cover all the bases . Quite sure you can buy valves from Rebello - and he would give some free advice since your buying 🙂
