How To Replace Shifter Bushing in early 240Z
DannDZ posted a topic in Engine & DrivetrainI need to replace the shifter bushing in my early 240Z, manufactured 8/70. I know that the very early Zs were different from the slightly later models. I suspect I have an early transmission, but I'll confirm that later. What I am particularly interested in is the gaining access to the bushings. Is it necessary to remove the center console or can they be access from beneath the car? I think of taking out the console to be a real pain, so if I can avoid it, so much the better. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
steering is sloppy
bondoking posted a topic in Suspension & SteeringHappy day. My 78' Zmobile was fitted with 16" Konig Silver Rewinds and Cooper RS3's today, but......... The guys at Tire Kingdom tell me that my rack "has some play", and the steering wheel will arc back and forth approx 3" each way before I feel the tires grab and start to turn. My mechanic has told me that new urethane bushings will help a lot to tighten things up and I don't mind spending the bucks for that. Do you think that will do the trick or I looking at a total rack and pinion replacement ? It is a one owner car.........me, and has 105,000 miles on it. No abuse, but I have not ever had to do anything with the steering section. Is my lucky streak over? I remember when it was new it would turn on a dime and give you 5 cents change. I want that tight turning feel again. What to do ? Thanks for your help.
reAR strut insulators for late 260z to 280z
zdude1967 posted a topic in Suspension & SteeringI need strut insulators for my late year 260z. Seems the proper item is very hard to find. Curtesy Nissan has a super imposed number for the original part that references to the same part as the 240z. This is about 3/4 of an inch lower then the original.Has anybody used this lower strut insulator on their late 260z or 280z. Did it make the rear droop. Is it very noticeable. How was the ride. Thanks ZDude1967
Black Dragon or Motorsport Auto for bushing kits?
saridout posted a topic in Open Discussionsi'm trying to decide which front suspension bushing kit i should buy for my '76. the BDA kit is 30 bucks more, but is it worth it? are there many additional bushings, and/or is the kit better quality? is there a better kit from a different online source? i'd love to hear from some folks who have bought a kit. http://www.blackdragonauto.com/icatalog/z/full.aspx?page=43 http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/PSDC06A/23-4100AZ
