  1. 1971 240z rb25det build thread

    It’s been a long time since I updated this thread. You all deserve better. I didn’t get much done on it last year. I purchased a house and have been remodeling that for the last 2 years. So unfortunately the z went on the back burner. Here’s what went wrong. The headlights stopped working. Turns out that the high beam lever on the stalk broke apart on the inside. It looks like it had a spring in it that moved a contact point. Have yet to find a replacement. Wired it out for now and put my high beams on a switch. Radiator leaked. I need to find some better fitting radiator hoses. I found what I could at autozone when I did the engine swap but they aren’t perfect. I spent a good good couple days rewiring my dash. It was a rats nest and was completely unserviceable. Added some molex plugs so that thing like gauges and the dash itself can be removed. This spring I plan to make it more of a priority and get some more done on it. Funny story. I really thought I had a rare car until I show up at a small car meet 20 miles from my car and another rb z pulls up and parks next to me.

    Agarc315. Thanks for the kind words. I don’t think I have the answers to your issues. Perhaps your tank has some baffles preventing fuel from getting to the lines.

    Maddpopeye Looks like you are starting with a nice car. Get motivated and get it done. Don't hesitate to ask if you come across any questions. Putting it all together was so much fun. Most of the time I forgot to take pics of my progress. Thanks for the kind words.

    Thanks. I don't have any videos. It's put away for the winter but I'll take some in the spring.

    Update at last. Finally got it back from the body shop. Need to start putting the interior back in. I need to get the correct size wheel spacers. But for now I'm enjoying finally having a chance to drive her around a bit.

    The strap that prevents holds the diff in place could have broke. That would cause some of the symptoms.

    Sorry I don't know and the car is at the body shop. Won't have it back for at least a month.
  13. Fatlace AME wheels (Gauging interest)

    I would but I already have mine. Just waiting to get the flares mounted.

    I don't have any pics of the mounts. It was just a matter of stacking extra washers under the mount to raise it up a bit. The sti rear diff required no modification. That's the reason I went with it. Thanks for the kind words.
  15. I have for sale a used blitz sbc I color boost controller package. It has the add on a/f kit and I also have a extra temp sensor for It. (Not shown in pics). The unit has some scratches on the face and sides of the controller. Scratches on face not noticeable when illuminated. I am in the nw suburbs of Chicago and the price is $850 shipped anywhere in the lower 48.
