  1. Playing with fire

    The holes might not hurt the bending strength much, but removing the "I-beam" top and bottom flange sure as hell will. Stop. Please...
  2. How great to have that resource to make those bushings. Great work! Can you tell us if he is casting them or machining them from a larger piece? BTW, the ES poly bushings fit the 73 and later crossmember (Item 24 in the diagram) with the horizontal mounting bolts.
  3. WTB R200 pinion flange

    Edited. Actually don't have one in the size you mention. sorry.
  4. I have a R200 pinion input flange for you B-A-280. send me a note to [email protected]
  5. vintage air drain hose

    No problem. Just keep a wet vac in the trunk and suck your carpets dry every couple of days. I drilled a hole in the tunnel and ran the hose through there with about 1" sticking out under the car. Just make sure the hose always runs downhill.
  6. The thing on the plenum is marked as a "sequential blow off valve". No brand name. Looks like it is an afterthought. Pretty scuzzy. there are no other devices on the plenum
  7. where to get OEM parts

    The parts manager at Lynchburg Nissan, Riley Curtis is bending over backwards for people looking for OEM parts. On FB, search for "Riley LynchburgNissan", he's watching all the time. He has helped me and many other immensely.
  8. WTB auxiliary air control valve

    I believe the best bolt in replacement is from a Z31 VG motor. Almost all the old Z/Zx AAR are likely to be less then perfectly functional
  9. WTB: 240Z strut housing - Front Right - FOUND!

    If no one closer responds I have one (either side!) for you up here in Western Canada. Postal rates to the US are cheap. I wish the reverse was true.... PM me or [email protected]
  10. I have an ancient, though undeniably cool, CarTech carb blowthrough Turbp system available. It is designed for use with triple side drafts, not included! I was going to hang it on the wall and say "hey look what 30 year old turbo crap looks like !" but I realized that was silly. Better someone else hang it on their wall. No idea what this stuff is worth, but due to rarity, and the fact that I have to state a price, I'm going to toss out a crazy number like $1000 USD. I am taking offers and will accept the highest reasonable bid. This stuff is heavy, especially the turbo/exhaust manifold. Shipping is on the buyer of course. It is all located in Western Canada. What you see is what you get in the pictures. There is also an intercooler, it too is huge and heavy. A more modern equivalent is likely a better choice. If no one wants the entire package, I will part it out. The intake plenum is clearly the most valuable of all the items. We'll talk price when the time comes. Can't say it would make a good NA intake plenum flow wise, but there is likely a post on here somewhere where experts debated this topic to death. Let me know if have any questions. Email to [email protected] is likely the fastest way to get a response. Jim
  11. USB Chargers in your S30?

    There are some great and cheap panel mount chargers. Biggest thing of all is make sure you get the 2.1 Amp output ones or your I-device will not be happy..... I put mine on the side of the console on the passenger side, up front quite far.
  12. Sound Deadening Material For Floor

    Sound deadening is a complex problem. To simplify, it is often covered in two broad areas. High frequency and low frequency. The tar like mats, who ever makes them, are heavy for a reason, are stuck directly to bare steel panels and damp high frequencies. Adding mass lowers the reasonant frequency of the material. Your door when struck goes from tinny (hi freq) to a thud or thunk (low frequency). The volume of the total noise getting through the panel is reduced some what but not usually enough. You have lowered the frequency of the sound that gets through, but how do you reduce the magnitude of that noise? You then need to add a thick sound absorbing pad for lack of a better term, to attenuate the low frequencies that road noise, exhaust and such make. This is a second product you basically putUIKeyInputDownArrow under your rugs and on the firewall to do that part of the job. You will find these two components in any modern car. That and whole bunch of material engineering and isolation techniques that keep the outside noises away from the cabin in the first place. Something 50 year old cars lack for some reason.... I use the b-quiet product. b-quiet.com. They publish their attenuation specs and comparisons. Price is right too. No smell, good adhesion, good performance. Heat attenuation is whole 'nother ball of wax. Doing something reflective around the exhaust on the OUTSIDE is your best level 1 defence. The sound deadening products you're applying have a variety of R-Values and effectiveness.
  13. compressor mount for 240z?

    Vintage air sells a nice laser cut generic bracket pair that makes a fabricated bracket as easy as possible, but it still requires welding and cutting a plate to fit your block and position the pulley correctly. The L series brackets on the 280's and ZX's is anothe option but will still require considerable "manipulation" Here is the bracket I made for the 510. This the VA catalog page with the bracket. http://www.vintageair.com/2017%20Catalog/2017%20Vintage%20Air%20Catalog%2071.pdf
  14. WTB: 72 240z fuse box

    I have good used fuse boxes, no corrosion or melting. Let me know @[email protected],ca if you still need one.
  15. all electronic custom dash

    Although the nissan sender threads are something like M22x1.5, it is probably close enough to thread on. 18 TPI is a bit fine. As long as it goes on well enough to seal. I only checked the threads. Definitely 1.5 TPmm.
