  1. I going through this also in trying to finish up my brakes. I found these on the Internet and they look like its the tool to do the bridge tubes for the calipers and the rear wheel cylinders. I got to reverse the lines to the master cylinder also. Once I got the old tubes off they looked pretty sad. Eastwood has them on eBay for less than the store price. http://www.eastwoodco.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemType=PRODUCT&RS=1&itemID=10826&keyword=49074
  2. Is that why this hobby is called blood, sweat and gears?
  3. Its 2.4Gig of data not the 1.4Gig as I posted
  4. I had never heard of Kalitta Air until I read your post. I see that Connie Kalitta started Kalitta Air in 1967. In 1967 Conrad "Connie" Kalitta began a business carrying car parts using a twin engine Cessna 310 that he piloted himself. Over the years this simple start blossomed into a major airline - American International Airways. AIA began flying in 1984 using Boeing 747, Lockheed L-1011, Douglas DC-8, Twin Beech and Learjet aircraft, for air freight, air ambulance and charter passenger operations. In 1990 and 1991 AIA flew 600 missions in support of Desert Shield/Desert Storm. They ultimately became one of the world’s 25 largest airlines
  5. Yup its still growing and getting better. Its now 1.4Gig and on a commercial server where its been for 3 years. WWW.V8-240Z.com click on the morphing Z and follow the directions. I do offer all you see on a DVD contact me for details.
  6. Scott Kalitta died today 6/21/08 in a fiery crash and explosion at a speed of 300MPH http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DziJdGwFQjU Why on earth is there what looks like a brick wall at the end?
  7. Man I feel like the spelling cops now and a 240Z Oringinal Owner is the owner of?
  8. It says 1972-1978 DATSUN - PLUG & CHUG DRING HOLDER FOR 240Z - 260Z - 280Z And what is a dring?
  9. The 70-71 clutch pedal does have the piece for the clutch MC clevis. Here is one just posted on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&sspagename=ADME%3AB%3ASS%3AUS%3A1123&viewitem=&item=150254713314
  10. I seem to remember a offset piece that was welded or bolted to the clutch pedal that the clutch MC clevis attached to.
  11. Just sent you a PM about a 71 pedal box.
  12. After many years of owning Corvettes and using urethane bushings, we always drilled and tapped the control arms or bushing retaining parts to accept grease zerks. For the bushings a groove was cut around the OD with a file and or a a hole drilled through the bushing so grease could reach the inside pivot point. I don't see anyone doing this on the Z's. I do have urethane bushings on rear my 71 and did drill and tap for zerks. My front sway bar is a 1" bar with urethane and a zerk with a hole drilled through the urethane to the center. That has eliminated all the noise, that front bar at one time squeeked worse than a old rusty gate. As far as grease I use the green marine grease, there may be something better but it seems to work well.
  13. I have seen 3 different ones used on the Z's
  14. You could solder a 5/8" brass compression ferrel on the ends of the tubing to keep the heater hose from slipping off.
  15. When I clicked on his feedback it says he is not a registered user.
