  1. The attached may help with a rebuild/inspection. It was posted here a while back. Check it out. http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17688
  2. Picture as requested - hope this helps.
  3. I like the look as well. There are a lot of options available to dress these things up. I have worked over a dozen or so - click on the gallery link below...
  4. I just fixed mine two weeks ago, and it's all messed up again. I have much more faith in the Z-Home list found at: http://www.zhome.com/. Thank you, Carl for your efforts in creation and maintenance.
  5. I ditto that. Be careful. If it flies off, there is the potential to damage the people behind you. If it's tethered to the car when it flies off, you'll beat the rear of your own vehicle to death (along with the spoiler). I don't like either scenario. IMHO I'd not put one on if I didn't want to drill holes.
  6. I'm not recommending 20W-50. I do not use it in my 240 these days. You may wish to go back to the weight you were using previously to see if your problem backs off.
  7. Curious, what weight oil were you using prior to the change to 10W-30? Back in the '70s, I switched from 20W-50 GTX to 10W-30. The car consumed mass quantities (and blue smoke was visible upon hard acceleration / deceleration). Back to the 20W-50, and there was no problem at all. Just a thought for consideration -
  8. Harbor Freight sells a tool for u-joint replacement. I used it on the old Jeep more than once with good results - yet to use it on my 240, but anticipate that it will make the job much easier than without it. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=38335 I recall the price somewhat less than now listed, but it was years ago & may have been on sale at the time.
  9. The car is worth what the buyer is willing to pay. If this suits your wants, then you will likely be willing to pay more than many others, whose tastes this package would not suit. Not trying to throw a bucket of water on the campfire, but personally, I would be a bit uneasy about an engine that's billed as a stroker and has no documentation related to who did what, when, and how it really performs. If this was a documented Rebello, I'd feel much better about the price, but, unless I missed something, it is a pig in a poke. As Dirty Harry Callahan once said, "How lucky do you feel.....?" I would be tempted to dig for considerably more information before I opened my wallet. That's just me and my opinion, you need not share it, but it is in response to your question.
  10. Welcome aboard, Al!! This is the best place I am aware of to learn about the Z-Cars.
  11. My guess would be a mfg. date at the very end of 1970 or early 1971, likely sold as a 1971. If the data plate is still on the car, the date of mfg. should be noted there. Welcome to another Pennsylvania resident!! I'm just an hour or two down from you in Millersburg.....
  12. I have used, with great results, Krylon "Fusion" satin black. It's designed to adhere to plastic, etc. There are a few pictures of repair & refinish results in my gallery... I hope the links here take you to the pictures I posted a while back. This thing was broken and ugly prior to a bit of work. It shows the Krylon results on both sides, and it's the same type of material you will be refreshing. Hope this helps. http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=21626&d=1202345518 http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=21625&d=1202345518 http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=21627&d=1202345518
  13. AZ-240z related my exact thoughts on a remedy. IMHO it is least invasive and provides some protection to the surrounding area. I have had success using this method also.
  14. There are pictures that can be found in our photos gallery that may help. I did a search on "flat top" and came up with this:http://www.classiczcars.com/photopost/search.php?searchid=4460 You may find more trolling around there as well. Search function here is invaluable! (Just be aware that not all results are flat top carbs....)
