    SU issues

    3 screw was able to get the right mix after adjusting the float even more. Runs smooth at 90-95% power now. yay! thx for all the help.

    SU issues

    new sparkplugs same thing cant get ahold of timing light atm After running i pulled the piston off the carbs and compared fuel level in the nozzle. The rear one is much lower then the front, even after i adjusted the rear float bowl again. Although i think i saw a increase with the last adjustment. Yes, i know they dont have to be the same i have had them at 2.5 and 3.5 at the same time before and didnt notice a difference. Maybe now with the float bowl a little better maybe ill have some luck with the mix nut.

    all wires are on correctly all sparkplugs are pretty nasty (cleaned/sanded them same problems tho) The jet hoses are good (expensive ones) If i squeeze the front jet hose the car stalls out If i squeeze the back hose the car runs at lower rpm a a little rough Im gonna go borrow a timing light now and buy new plugs

    SU issues

    Ive spent too many hours with limited success. It has been running rough the last few weeks with extreme loss of power. I tore the carbs apart cleaned them and put them back on and tuned them. Most power has returned but still running rough. The air flow is ballanced, im at 1 and 7/8 turns mixture, both float bowls appear to be working the same. Heres where the issue lies im sure: When i press on the piston lift button on the back carb (making it only run on the front carb) it lowers slighly in rpm and runs a little rough. That means the front carb is tuned correcly from my understanding. BUT when i do the same on the front ( making it run only on the back carb) it stalls out right away. From what i have read this means its lean. Currenly both carbs are at the same mixture but i have taken it all the way to 3.5 turns and it does the same thing. Any ideas?
  5. IIRC i tried that and when the switch is centered the lights stay lit up instead of flashing
  6. 1. no 2. yes i know there at 2 flashers and i am not comnining them 3. i bought this car as a running shell, i bought and installed everything in my interior ( and have yet to find a hazzard switch) 4 sanwsered above...and dont get me started on the PO 5. correct (only when the turn signal switch is centered....otheris it workes fine
  7. I have the service manuals(ie the diagrams) thats how i know its the 2 center green wirings headed to the hazzard switch. I was hoping i could just bypass the hazzard by connecting them. it works but when i dont have the turn signales going to the left or right it flashs both in stead of none. Its a 74 260z
  8. Its a 74 and ive been searching for a hazzard switch...if some one finds one for sale let me know. I have the service manuals(ie the diagrams) thats how i know its the 2 center green wirings headed to the hazzard switch.

  9. I don’t have a hazard switch/cant find one…and the turn signal power runs though the hazard. So I connected the 2 center green wires in the wiring diagram for the turn signals. Now the turn signals work correctly when I click left or right but when it’s in the center both flash (on the turn signal flasher…. NOT the hazard flasher…I have 2 different flashers so I can heard the difference) It shouldn’t be too hard but what do I need to do to prevent it from flashing when centered? (IE how dose the hazard switch allow power to go to the left and right but not when centered when hazard switch is off?)

  13. Thats the car that (a red one just like it) that got me into Z's in the first place. I was looking to buy a 240sx and i saw that conversion and i had to find out what front end it was...end result i own a Z not a sx
  14. Arne when i got the seats in my car now i did the same thing, and it killed me. I had to switch them. im 6'2 i need all the leg room i can get
