  1. Those observations are pretty spot on, old Zs are loud, smelly and you can hear everything going on under the car. All of my Zs have been like that and I have had several. The only thing that would concern me is the steering, unless you have really fat sticky tires it should not be heavy at speed. Even with fat tires that does not sound right. I had a ton of drive train noise in my last Z, ended up being both the trans and rear wheel bearings. But even after fixing those it was still loud.

  3. Not sure what they are but I used fiberglass and epoxy to repair all the plastics in my blue on blue 71' Worked out very well.
  4. +1 Metal side out and several thousand miles later no problems!
  5. +1 here! I got two rolls of this from Eastwood years ago but I don't know if they sell it any more.
  6. I used those on my car for fuel and bought them at my local Napa along with some nice double lined heater and radiator hoses. I also got some tiny fuel clamps of the same design for the SU carb nozzle lines from an online VW bug parts place. They look snazzy and match the ones i use on the fuel rail.
  7. Dropped off my propeller shaft off at Driveline Service of West Sac to get checked out and balanced. Car developed a horrid vibration starting at 50mph after changing to 4.11 gears. Changed out the U-joints and no difference so off to the shop with it! Wont surprise me if it bent or out of balance, it's kind of a kluge of used parts ;-)
  8. Kats, Thank you so much for bringing your 432 to the show in San Diego, and much apologizes for the poor quality gas in California. It is no where near as good as the gas in Japan ;-) I must say your 432 was amazing by the way! Hope to see you here in sunny Cali again some day soon. Eric
  9. Short nose R230 very stout and a couple LSD options from Nissan I believe. 1973 240Z - Z32 R230 Swap - The Tool Shed - HybridZ 300ZX TT and Armada use this diff.
  10. So is anyone headed down to San Diego Tuesday from Northern California? We have several folks from the Sacramento Datsun Owners Club heading down Monday and Tuesday with a meet in L.A. Tuesday around noon. From There we'll all caravan down to Z-Con in San Diego and plan to be there before 5pm. If anyone is planning on driving down, either day lets see if we can get some groups together! I'm leaving from Sacramento early Tuesday morning (5am). Eric
  11. I'd replace all four while you have them apart. Inexpesive parts and no telling how many more bumps that orange thing will take before its toast. On the strut bearing issue, the fronts should have a bearing in the "hat" that has the three studs in it and the rears should have a similarly shaped plastic spacer.
  12. Carl said: Irwin Vise-Grip Locking Wrench — 7in., Model# 04 | Locking Pliers| Northern Tool + Equipment That's in ingenious tool my friend! Gotta get one of those ASAP!
  13. I did my struts on my 71' and just took the entire lower control arm and strut off as an assembly and over to the bench. Pop off the spring perch and swap strut cartridge. Took maybe two hours or a bit more total to do both sides. Don't forget the new bump stop or you just might find yourself changing struts again soon if they bottom out and destroy the internal valving.
