    I have a single 3 screw su i believe id be willing to part ways with just for the cost of shipping as it was given to me for free and I wouldnt mind passing the love on to a fellow Z owner, dont know if this will help but if it does shoot me a message

    '78 280Z Fast Idle Actuator

    random question but does anyone know if this could find its way onto a 240z with a vintage air kit? currently just have my idle higher in the summer then lower it in winter but would love a better solution to this...

    brake cooling backing plate

    im running porterfeild r4-s compound all around, bled the system and it has good dot 4 in it, although i might do that again and put new bleeder valves in just to be sure

    not having issues with life as much as i am with fade, lots of braking and turns on back roads not so much high speed

    brake cooling backing plate

    simple yet awesome, i like it! might look into something like that.... where do you have the air coming from? i dont want to put an airdam on the car so was thinking of getting air from somewhere around/ under the grill or lower valance
  7. has anyone ever made a backing plate that allows for ducting to directly cool the front braking system? something like this: https://www.google.com/search?q=brake+duct+backing+plates&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj73szWjqTdAhUGSN8KHWWxAPMQ_AUICygC&biw=1133&bih=666#imgrc=onOrFg9P04DUqM: any input on how to make one for the 240z would be highly appreciated! just installed new porterfield pads and good rotors and still suffering from fade on the backroads....
  8. checked and cleaned plugs, one cam lobe had some scarring so it got a tiny adjustment... hoping that isnt it but starting to think it might be... nothing electrical was touched, its intermittent
  9. was mostly highway driving, could feel a little around 1.8k and 3,5k
  10. Its a 73 240z, has an l28 that is carb'd, i believe they are 3 screw carbs. I replaced the fuel pump, filter, and the lines in the engine bay yesterday... now i have a misfire yay
  11. car did it again today.... drained the tank car had ~8 gallons in it when it did this, drove about 10 miles and then parked for about 20 mins then it wouldnt start... pulled the pump, pressed it by hand quite a few times and then was back on the road
  12. Had a couple situations where I thought the car ran out of gas or something sputtered and died and then either needed gas or just needed to pull the valve cover and pump the fuel pump by hand until gas comes up and then it usually starts right up.... happened about 4 times, one i think was because the car was out of gas and then put gas in and needed to be pumped after that... other 3 car had gas.... is this a fuel pump issue or the dreaded vapor lock? located in nj, these have all happened within the past 2 months any guidance would be appreciated!
  13. The sensor is less than 2 years old I believe...what could cause it to fail so early?
  14. 1973 Datsun 240z, had engine rebuild less than 5k miles ago, oil changes with 10-30 vr1 oil. Normally has pretty high oil pressure that stays up at least 75%+ of the dial at 3-3.5k rpm, now it does not go as high and it goes down much quicker than it normally does and gets closer to 0 then it ever has. Have not touched anything on the engine, except for pulling valve cover to prime fuel pump a couple times since i ran out of gas.... any input or direction would be appreciated! thank you
