  1. Thank you for this informativ and encouriging reply. I know now what to do.
  2. Thanks John! Is the stock clutch still ok for 210 hp? That's why I bought the centerforce 2 some time ago and stored the stock one for my other stock 240.
  3. Hi trcb, in principle you are right but my presssure plate and flywheel look good and are not old. I had to take my engine out as I had to replace the front cover. So I thought it might be a good idea to replace the clutch disk and some more parts. John, does the stock clutch disk for the 240 Z work with the centerforce 2? Motorsports said "No" but as far as I know you by your comments I believe in your experiance with tuned Zs. Thanks for your support
  4. Hi friends, my clutch disk needs a replacement. Centerforce doesn't sell the disk separated. Why should I buy a total new kit when I only need a new disk? What is the special of the centerforce 2 disk and has anyone of you an idea what I can use instead and where to get it. Thanks for your help! Rolf
  5. Hi Steve, thank you for your reply, that is encouraging! Can you explain a bit more what happened to the lash pads and how you solved the problem, please .
  6. Hi friends! I bought the performance camshaft kit with cam lift .480 and duration 274. My questions now are: What are your experiances (if you have installed the kit) and - in special - how did you go on with the valve springs. My mechanic thinks that the valve springs are too strong (130 kp) for that camshaft compared to the 80 kp of the stock springs in my ' 72 240 Z , that might be too weak for that still quite moderate cam. Thanks for your support Rolf
  7. Saw a Godzilla at Nurburgring free test driving day and parked my Z aside - what adifference 40 years make

  18. Hi all, thank you for your nreplies. Johnny'O, it's on page 37 (cooling), chapter 2.4 bobc, is it that big plug underneath the exhaust of cylinder 6 ? Nissanman, thanks for your helpful support. Unfortunately I forgot to mention my Z is a '72 240, but a friend of mine has a fourcylinder Fairlady roadster and when we talked he had the same question. I will pass your picture on to him. Rolf
  19. My Haines Manuel recommends to drai the cooling water at two plugs. One is the radiator's and another one should be on the left side of the engine. I can't find what Haynes means. Where is it ?
  20. Welcome Thorsten Take care for your wonderful car. I saw it on Saturday when we met "Mad Mike" Taylor in Germany and talked about the very few real 240Zs here. Rolf
  21. John Coffey is absolutely right concerning the history of stripes. Stripes and colours also had a big adventage for the pit crews to differ their cars from other competitors or even team cars. Look for instance at the different colours and/or stripes of the Ford GT 40s at Le Mans 24h races. In the early days racecars had different colours by nationality: Red for Italy, Blue for France , Green for GB, yellow for Belgium, Silver for Germany and White for USA. So the Ford GT 40 Proto was white with blue stripes. The stripes were later also used for advertising purposes. So Tony Fall's 240Z in the Briish Championship had red-green stripes, the colours of Castrol Oils (one of his sponsors) and some cars had stripes in national colours (for instance Alfa Romeo) or company colours (see early Lancia Fulvias yellow/blue stripes).

    Shif

    I installed the MSA Short Shifter and it works fine but I wonder why the shifter knob is that heavy. It seems that the knob is an original Nissan part 32865-35F00. Can you tell me what the advantage of a relativly heavyweight knob is compared to a light one ?
