  1. I'm all good - I have found what I needed - thanks for looking ...
  2. Hi everyone Does anyone have a spare R180 diff cover they can sell me? I need it lickety split - I'm in SoCal ... I didn't notice there was some crap on my fill plug, I went to tighten it last night, and cracked the cover ... Let me know? Thank you -e
  3. Hi all Are there any Hybrid Z Admins also lurking on here? I used to have an acct to that site, lost/forgot my password, emailed the admin link asking to have it reset and never heard back from anyone... Can anyone with a working account lend me a hand? I posted in the S30 Parts Swapping Section here that I am looking for a pair of ZX Automatic 4 bolt companion flanges and wanted to post something similar on Hybrid Z to see if anyone out there has a set? Thanks for your assistance if you can help me out... -e
  4. Hi guys A while back I bought the Wolfcreek Racing CV halfshafts and they've worked great. But now I am swapping my struts over to the later larger diameter style and the companion flange that came with them is the 6 bolt type Stock 240Z is 4 bolt and that's what the WCR CV halfshafts are meant to bolt up to... So it looks like I need a pair of ZX Automatic 4 bolt companion flanges... Or I need to have a new adapter made... Any thoughts on this? Anyone have a spare set they'd like to sell me? Thanks in advance, -e
  5. Hi all, If you guys decide to have another tuning event with Keith Franck I'd like to know about it... I'm in SoCal but would consider coming up to NorCal... I actually just posted for the first time on sidedraft central about some mystery 44PHH jet bodies I'm wondering about... -e
  6. Hi all Does anyone recommend a resource for ported intake exhaust manifold gaskets? I was opening the intake holes on one 240Z gaskets on a spindle sander and I have mixed feelings about the results... I thought I had seen some larger diameter intake exhaust gaskets on the net somewhere but can't find them anywhere now 240Z intake gasket port hole is about 36mm I need to get to 40mm for my specific application... Thoughts? Thanks, -e
  7. Quick FYI update guys: I had the opportunity to try out a stock 89-94 240SX 15x6 steel rim over the MK63 calipers. It cleared the caliper but required a 5mm wheel spacer not to rub due to the 240SX' different offset. Stock C10 rim size was 14" with 6.45 s14 tires which equates to a 175/70R14 or 185/65R14 Maybe this is useful info for someone else?
  8. Hi all, I've got a 1970 240Z rear window with the original vertical defroster lines intact. These are getting rarer every day, and there's the big MSA show coming up next month. It's obviously big and fragile and I'd really rather NOT ship it. It's located in Pasadena (91102) and I'd like to get $150 obo for it. If there are no takers here, then I'll probably put it on eBay. -e
  9. Hi, If anyone is considering (or has already) replaced their stock seat belts for aftermarket (racing) ones, then I'd like to buy your stock belts for my C10 skyline... Let me know if interested, Thanks -e
  10. Hi Alan This is just for spare tire purposes only. My C10 currently does not have a spare and with the 700mile drive I need to do with the car in a couple weeks I don't want to run the risk of getting a flat in the middle of the desert. Glad to hear 14"s (with a wheel spacer) will fit over MK63 calipers... I'll order one up today. Thanks Alan. -e
  11. they are also known as the FIA Caliper option that was available through Nissan's competition department back in the day... So not a factory installed option, but instead a factory available racing option. Do you have them on your car?
  12. Fellow Skyline owners, (I'm still getting used to how that sounds... ...) How many of you have the optional MK63 4piston calipers on the front of your Skyline? While you may be running 15" or larger diameter wheels, have you tried fitting 14" steelies over these calipers? Did your car come with a 14" steel spare in the trunk? Let me know please, Thanks. -e
  13. Oh ok... Wow bend to fit, eh? Cool! Thanks mister...
  14. Hi all Last month I bought a pair of new chrome door moldings from "Reddat" on eBay. Yesterday afternoon I had a bit of free time so I thought I'd install them on my June 1973 240z... Well I came across an odd issue The moldings he sent me are dead straight when viewed from the side of the car The moldings that are on my car and which I believe to be original have a slight curve to the back half of them. They slightly curve up to meet the quarter glass. I pulled mine off and noted that the top of my door skin has the same slight curve to it. Am I seeing things? The seller Reddat is telling me that the only difference in the door chrome moldings for the different year 240z's is whether they have the rubber or metal end plug... Any advice from you all? Thanks -e
  15. Hi all, I am building a mild stroker L28 and I wanted to run a couple questions by you all. I have a 90.5mm bore diameter headgasket already picked out, and will have my block bored out to either 89 or 90mm depending on if I ultimately go with a 2949cc or 3015cc displacement. I wanted to ask if anyone has any specific advice about the relationship of the headgasket bore diameter to the block bore diameter. Should I skew towards the 89mm diameter for my block walls to retain a little extra meat, and maybe be just that little bit sturdier? Or does someone think that a 1.5mm difference between the headgasket bore and block bore would be an issue I should be wary of? Thanks, -e
  16. BTW all I just heard back from Nissan Both pistons 12010-40F72 and 12010-40F10 are now NLA from Nissan/Nismo... F72 is the high perf flat top piston listed in the S13 section of the Nismo catalog F10 is the piston listed for use in the 2949cc L24rod/L28crank combination here http://www.zhome.com/ZCMnL/tech/128combo.html So aftermarket as listed above is the only way to go... bummer...
  17. Never mind I'm good, I've answered my own question. For others' sake, a L24 water inlet will bolt just fine to a L28 front cover The difference is that the L28 water inlet has a two way brass fitting pointing back to the firewall whereas a L24 water inlet only has one cast fitting pointing back to firewall.
  18. D21 Trucks and S13 240SX with Ka24 engines use the flat top piston with p/n 12010-40f72 Does that settle it then?
  19. Hi So I'm looking to buy a new water inlet fitting (pass side of front cover, above alt) for my F54 L28 and I've come across plenty of inlet fittings for L24/L26. The thing is the pics shown for these L24/L26 items look virtually identical to the one currently on my L28. Are they interchangeable or is there a difference? Thx!
  20. Hi all Based on this chart: http://www.zhome.com/ZCMnL/tech/128combo.html I've decided on going the 2949cc route by way of L28 block + L24 rods + KA24 pistons in STD 89mm width That chart lists part number 12010-40f10 for the std diameter 89mm unit and lists a zero cc dish volume. I assume that means these are flat top pistons. However when I look up this p/n I invariably find images of the dished Ka24de turbo piston And then when doing a similar p/n search on nismoparts.com I came across an advertised Ka24 flat top piston but with a slightly different part number: 12010-40f72 Can someone confirm which is the right p/n before I place a non-returnable special parts order at the dealership please? Thx -e
  21. I've now received everything. The brake lines did in fact come from a third party (here in LA) so now I'm good. As with my previous Modern Motorsports order I'm very happy with quality. You just can't be in a rush to receive the parts. It took a total of 5weeks for me.
  22. I've now received most of my parts! I ordered the rear disc conversion bracket kit (brackets + hardware + clevis pin conversion + brake lines + kvr pads but without rotors) on May 20. I received the KVR brake pads straight from the manufacturer on Friday June 17. I received the brackets + hardware but without brake lines from Ross today June 23. I'll give him a call and ask if the brake lines are coming direct from a third party vendor... Yes, like Adam said, it does take a while, but the stuff does get there in the end... -e
