  1. 1976 280z 5.3 TR6060 Build

    How does a 6060 shift compared to a T56?
  2. Fender support pads

    I just got some peel and stick closed cell foam from the hardware store that was the same thickness. Make sure it's closed cell, you don't want a sponge holding water under there.
  3. Old pictures only show as name.jpg

    in opera the extension is called photobucket hotlink fix
  4. I have the TTT rears and was able to adjust everything with them on the car when I did my alignment.
  5. It looks like it has a heim joint on both ends of the back side. Would that be able to move up and down slightly during driving, giving slight caster changes all the time?
  6. vintage air drain hose

    I have a gen 2 compac and ran the drain hose through the original drain hole on a 78.
  7. retrospec dash?

    My friend has big gaps under where the metal piece that goes across the front under the windshield sits over the dash. They are worse on either end than in the middle. Also, why doesn't it have the inset for the 280Z dash plaque?
  8. http://lt1swap.com/2004gto.htm I just used this to make the stock GTO harness work.
  9. LS1 swap with or without AC

    I have the 04 GTO motor. The alternator is low drivers side, and the AC is high drivers side. Look in V8 section for more info.
  10. Anco 48-12 are for the straight arm to j hook type of early wiper arms.
  11. My friend had a parts car that had these wiper arms with a hook attachment on the end, instead of the crappy wobbly pins. It appears to be an add on. It has different part numbers than the wiper arms with the pins, so I don't know if they maybe came off another car. Anyone know where to get these, or what they may be called to help narrow down my search? 621 LA87 1R 622 LD87 1L These are the numbers that are printed on them. Maybe the ends came off another vehicle?
  12. 2jz or LS3

    The ls3 has 425-435 no stock, depending what car was the donor.
  13. After having and moving all the parts around my garage multiple times for about a year, I finally got some of that motivation to try to see if I could get the Saturn electric power steering into my Z. Mine is an LS swap with vintage air so not sure if the under dash or under hood part will work with a stock engine or not. Also so far this weekend I only got the fab part complete and only turned the wheel back and forth in place, I haven't driven it yet, or wired it. My goal was to get all the parts in without cutting any parts of the structure of the car and have no welded parts on the torque side of the motor. It can only fit in 1 spot, with absolutely no play in any direction, clocked around 10:00. If you were to relocate the flasher that's behind the AC vent and remove the bracket holding it, it would give you another 1/4" space fore and aft and probably let you clock it to about 11:00. Hopefully once it's completed, it will drive well. I will start at the steering rack and work up from there. Parts used: Woodward UA113109 Datsun U joint DD shaft Dorman 614-001 uni-fit cv joint boot (autozone)...2 if you want to put one on the inside of the firewall also to dress it up Hose clamp ROL exhaust tubing 548510 (O'Reillys) 2 R18Z bearings (Ebay) Saturn Vue steering column with metal control box (not plastic one) 2002-2007 Bruno controller (Ebay) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Saturn-Vue-Chevy-Equinox-electric-power-steering-controller-EPAS-/122354361512?hash=item1c7ce364a8:g:I7AAAOSw0cdZfi49&vxp=mtr Hardened bolt for set screw 5/8 outer snap ring (Ace Hardware) Miscellaneous parts: primer, paint, bolts, welding wire, flat bar, etc. I got the woodward UA113109 universal joint to connect to the Datsun rack and convert it to DD steering rod.
  14. I got the saturn motor for 45 from a junk yard, the rest of the prices are online. I didn't keep track, but whatever it was, it was worth it.
  15. With a few new power steering kits out there, would dialing in more caster in the front be helpful? I just installed power steering and will put on short steering knuckles soon, so will need an alignment. I was going to use these specs from the alignment sticky: Street For 225 to 245 width radial DOT tires try these alignment settings: Front Camber: 1.25 to 1.5 neg Caster: 4 to 5 positive (even on both sides) Toe: 1/16" out or 0 Ride height: 6" to 6 1/2" measured at the front of the rocker outboard of the pinch weld seam. Rear Camber: 1.25 to 1.5 neg Toe: 1/16" to 1/8" in Ride height: 6 1/2" to 7" measured at the front of the rocker outboard of the pinch weld seam. For tire widths over 245 try these alignment settings: Front Camber: 1.25 to 1.5 neg Caster: 4 to 5 positive (even on both sides) Toe: 1/16" out or 0 Ride height: 6 1/2" to 7" measured at the front of the rocker outboard of the pinch weld seam. Rear Camber: 1.25 to 1.5 neg Toe: 1/16" to 1/8" in Ride height: 7" to 7 1/2" measured at the front of the rocker outboard of the pinch weld seam. Would more caster be a bad thing? And what about 0 or 1/16 toe in? I have slight toe out, between that and bumpsteer, my car wanders on the street.
  16. Project Binkey

    Anyone have an over/under on the final weight? I'm thinking under 2500 if they don't get crazy on the interior.
  17. Make sure they use NTSC and not pal or secam, or you wont be able to watch it. Thats even if you can find a vcr still.
  18. where to get OEM parts

    Did Courtesy parts ever come back? I got some hard to find stuff from them before.
  19. Xenon air dam angled upwards?

    What wheels are those? I love dirty gold wheels.
  20. Xenon air dam angled upwards?

    The reason people think they're supposed to bolt on the outside is the msa moulds are so out of whack it fits over instead of under like they're supposed to. It took a lot to get the msa ones under and they still didn't fit correctly.
  21. Anyone running rivals? I had my car up on the lift this weekend, and noticed all four were coming apart where the tread hit the sidewall. If you have them, check the inside as mine were only coming apart in the inside, the outsides were fine. Not sure which Tire I should replace these with, as these things had crazy good traction.

  23. Got it working last night. I only went up and down the street at slow speed, but power steering is wonderful. When I hooked it up, it turned easier right than left. If you remove the cover from the Saturn control box, there are 3 potentiometers. If you turn the one labeled VR1 in very small increments one way or the other, you will find the setting to get it equal.
  24. It's a weekend car with a few autocrosses. I have slicks for track days and autocrosses when I can get someone to follow me in my truck. I would love to figure out how to hook up a trailer like green hornet has. It's been almost a year since the last autocross. The rivals are great for dry days but are like driving on ice in a storm. If I know it's going to rain, I don't drive the Z, but sooner or later you get caught in a pop up storm. It's scary in the wet with Rivals.
