  1. Should be fine. Any modern “smart charger” designed for AGM batteries is good.

    Blower Motor Upgrade (Kia Sportage)

    I would second everything said in the previous post. You must enlarge the hole for the Kia cage to fit and the electrical connector on my ‘78 280Z worked fine, as well.
  3. Depends on Group size, but typically.... Red Top - 38 lbs.....Yellow Top - 50 lbs.....Braille GU1R - 6.4 pounds and last MUCH longer!

    Lets see your V8 in your Z.

    R200 LSD clutches

    Been a while, but since I still have one set of these left, I figured I'd add to the thread with a current post. For some reason, I don't always get the email notification if you reply to the thread, so send a PM if you want/need a set.

    Quietest muffler for V8 Z?

    It's funny how we both used the same stretch of road in our videos!

    Quietest muffler for V8 Z?

    I posted pics of the setup in a previous post (above), but here is a video inside the car (pretty quiet with the whole car having dynamat on entire floor from firewall to tail light panel) and an external video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buv8BZUvj3c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heKu1qdrbzg It is quite and sounds good for only have a single stainless Magnaflow muffler with dual 2.5" inlet and single 3" outlet.

    HybridZ may be shutting down.

    I bought a hat & shirt back in the day, but seems time to buy more. While I may not frequent the site like I used to, but I did learn so much about building my 280Z-06 (LS6 power) since most of it was new to me coming from owning, building & racing a pair of 510s for 12 years before selling them and getting the Z. I still refer people to this site via FB, etc., so glad to see the interest is still plentiful. It is an amazing resource. Donation coming.
  10. The function and feel of my brakes is fine, just done like having the fluid messing up the paint in my engine compartment. Anyway, it wasn't enough for me to even notice, aside from being wet under the MC.
  11. Unfortunately, I did not. It took some driving and hammering the brakes to notice the small amount of fluid leaking from between the MC & booster. I called Wilwood and am getting it sorted out with a new rebuild kit.
  12. Looks like mine is leaking, too. Crazy that so many have that problem.

    Ls oil pan

    I have the F-body pan and added the Improved Racing (hinged) baffles and the crank scraper. Should be good to go and clearance isn't bad since I didn't slam my car.

    Quietest muffler for V8 Z?

    I don't have a shot while on the rack, but this may help. I copied a friend's car that has an old school SBC with the same piping & muffler and it sounded good, as well. Not the prettiest, but functional and didn't cost me a fortune.
  15. Hey guys! I thought I'd pass along the info to you Datsun enthusiasts in the Pacific Northwest. The Datsun gathering in Canby, Oregon on June 9-11 is one of the largest Datsun gatherings on the west coast and certainly in the PNW. It is the 12th annual gathering and this year, John Morton is going to attend. Those who are familiar with John, he was the driver for Peter Brock in the BRE Datsuns and is one of the legends in Datsun racing history. This is a rare treat, as John typically only attends larger events and races. Get a copy of his book on Shelby America or "The Stainless Steel Carrot", which is a great book. Hope this helps and anyone that can make it will have a blast seeing tons of vintage Datsuns with a good number of Z cars and 510s among others. I attended the first few years when I lived in Oregon before moving here to Florida. It's a LONG drive now!! http://www.datsunsnw.org/
