  2. Finally Picked Up My S30

    Welcome, welcome! You mind sharing what you spent? I really liked the new maxima and altimas. I just wish Nissan stayed away from the CVT transmission. Even the new ones have problems.
  3. I cant recall what year you had but remember the door cards (panels) are different. This is copy and paste from a web search. "Late 1974 (260Z) 1975-1976 early 280z are the same door skins. 1976 late to 1978 type is totally different. It is bigger, clips holes do not match at all. Furthermore, door lock-rod-hole is about 1 inch off."

    Thanks for sharing.
  5. No reply option under FAQ section.

    I think it may be locked down. The other thing that should be disabled is the ability to start new topics in the FAQ section.
  6. ignition switch?

    It’s possible. I’ve not seen them fail where the dash lights stay on with the key off. So how are you getting the dash lights back off once they are on? Does the pump come on when you initially turn the key to on or only when you turn off? New switches are pretty cheap. I’d replace it and see what happens.
  7. 280z ignition

    Doh, your right Zed. I've been playing with my Z31's too much.
  8. 280z ignition

    Just reuse your 78 distributor for simiplicity. Just make sure you pay close attention to where the rotor is pointing. When you go to put the 78 into the 76 block, the rotor will twist due to the gear on it. You might have to do it a couple of times to get it spot on. You sure the dist wires are different? I thought 75-78 were the same.
  9. How do we Florida folks get invited next year!
  10. Random new S30 parts for sale

    That is the 300zx one right? What year is it from, I was looking for the T3 one from 84-87 I believe. The 88 and 89 are the T25.
  11. Not mine, just saw it posted and thought it was a very fair price shipped for a CLSD. https://z31performance.com/forum/marketplace/for-sale/538150-clsd-differential-30a-transmission-and-front-hubs
  12. Blue Dawn and Rain X for window cleaning??

    Or just buy the rainX brand windshield wiper fluid.
  13. Blue Dawn and Rain X for window cleaning??

    I don't see how it's any different than washing your car, drying and putting rain X on? That's how I read it at least.
  14. counting cars 240z

    Was it a customers or flip? What did it sell for if flip?
  15. I've wanted a Z31 for awhile. I'm not sure 100% why, but the S30 are classic and the ZX are okay, but I figured I'd step up a little bit and do something different. Anyway, she is a NY car (rust), milage kinda high, no reverse, clutch is slipping, a few oil leaks and a multitude of other misc. issues. She does run pretty good. Starts right up, boost is great. Keeping her all stock until I learn some. I'm into her for $1000 and a horrid ride down Hwy 27 in stop and go traffic for 95 miles to Sebring! I can't for the life of me figure why anyone would live down that way though, race track aside. I did score a sandblasting bucket 1/2 mile before picking the car up for $5!
  16. N42 Turbo Motor Build Questions

    There is a N42 block. Iirc it came on the 75/76 model years.
  17. 3 inch exhaust drone

    I've figured it out, that I've never figured it out! At at least once a month I scratch my head and go WTH is that about. Best part ever is having adult children now. They look at her and go what's wrong with her! Makes me feel normal all these years I've scratched my hair out in utter confusion.
  18. Geese it's been awhile. Sold that one, bought another real clean 88T about a year ago and just picked up annother 89T for $400! It was loaded with Rats. I must have soldered 60 wires! Fixed all those and it Started right up.
  19. Good parts from 1982 on 1979

    Tail lights should swap. You need to keep the metal retaining bracket from the 82 lights though.
  20. Seat swap list for s30's

    Is the seatbelt part of the seat? It looks like the belt and receiver are on the seat only.
  21. Seems their site isn't working correctly at the moment. Not sure where in FL you are but upull in Orlando had a ZX. https://upullandpay.com/orlando/home/ Tampa had one too, but theirs looks gone now.
  22. Poly Diff Mount?

    I might have a stock one on my extra LSD. I put a feeler out on Facebook group to see if anyone has a source.
  23. 280ZX at Bathurst

    I enjoyed watching the chunks of rubber sliding back and forth on the floor. That's what it looked like to me. It seemed really smooth, were you pushing it?
