    240Z Tank Modification

    You guys might want to look at what 240hoke is doing with Mat's install. He's a real engineer and a real nice guy! See his work at: https://www.facebook.com/hokeperformance chris

    Wheel size ?

    225/50 on 16 X 8 wheels will fill the stock fender-wells. It's actually a lot of tire under our small light cars. If you go with flares later, you will probably want more rim width and rubber to fill them out. chris
  3. Hey Aux, You didn't mention the 9" Ford for the rear. You gonna fab a 4-link or just hook it to the stock suspension? chris

    RIP John Coffey (johnc)

    I do not have anything else to add that hasn't already been said. I can only say that johnc will be missed! Godspeed and Rest in Peace! chris
  5. I think I would notify Arizona Z Car before I did anything. That doesn't look right. I'm thinking that hole should be perpendicular to the top and bottom face of the part. I have a pair of the Datsun original forged short knuckles and they are just like stock except the tie rod hole is closer to the ball joint than stock. chris

    Chevy V8 Crate Choices?

    I built my own 350 with the help of the local automotive machine shop. My friend bought a GM 290 HP 350 crate motor for his 66 Chevelle and another friend put the same motor in his 37 Terraplane. Both installs went well and are quite peppy. Both vehicles are street driven mostly. chris
  7. Is the bearing race a somewhat "loose" fit as opposed to a "press" fit in this area? If so see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fretting Sorry, link fairy not working today. chris

    Help needed for my 280z project FL

    Since you are wanting to do coil overs, floors and frame rails, you need a welder! Buy yourself a MiG welder that uses gas and get a bottle. Practice, practice, and practice some more. Do your own welding because it is going to be difficult to even find someone who will tackle floors and frame rails for less than the cost of the welding machine. My .02 centavos. chris
  9. Can usually find something here. Might have to use one or two adapters/fittings. https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productselection.asp?Product=3 chris

    Bet the guys driving the supercars had no clue what you and your son were rollin, much less the dedication required to (re)build and maintain the Z! As I said earlier, good job! chris

    280Z Restomod Progress

    Man, that turned out beautiful! I wish I could see it in person in the sunlight! Hate to think what your restoration must have cost in both dollars and elbo grease but, the result is well worth it! Good job! chris
