  1. MSA A/C install

    I'm doing the factory a/c install. I think the aftermarket may be better but I don't want to deal with retro-fit under dash when you can use what was designed to fit.
  2. Dizzy question 280Z

    I would actually like to find someone to rebuild mine if possible. Jeff at Advanced Distributor will rebuild it and bench it to dial it in with his equipment but he charges $200 and up. It also takes 4 to 6 weeks.
  3. Dizzy question 280Z

    I have the Calif single pick up which seem to run a little higher. I have heard A-1 CARDONE does a poor job of rebuilding them.
  4. I have a 1975 280Z California version with single pick up distributor. I am thinking it needs to be rebuilt soon. Any recommendations on who to send it to or should I just buy a replacement? It's the original dizzy. Thanks....
  5. Very nice. There are only 2 issues I see, one is the price seems a little high and two the screen is small and while driving you will have a very difficult time utilizing the touch screen. It's hard enough with a double din touch screen much less one half the size. Good luck though.
  6. 280z to 280zx mirrors

    Thanks, and yes the doors are gutted ready for paint. Why did you reverse the inner mounting brackets? I know there is a square reinforcement in the way but it seems like the bracket will fit into it. I'll have to double check. I am not going to use the power option since I am not wired for power.
  7. Door latching mechanism issue

    Have you tried pulling up on the lock while trying to open the door? My 75 locks itself due to minor spring corrosion and sometimes the lock rod doesn't return to the unlock position all the way up.
  8. Any pics of an aftermarket drier with the original hard lines and high pressure switch? Also, where you got the drier or make model info. I hate to buy one and have to return it if someone know what will work.
  9. 1975 Car and Driver 280Z Test

    Nice article.....thanks for sharing.
  10. I just need pics of everything under the dash so when I take mine apart to add factory a/c I will know how everything is routed and not guess. I have seen diagrams or drawings but they never look like the real thing. I know it's hard to take pics while working, I try to when I do installs but sometimes get too busy and forget. lol Anything is way better than nothing....Thanks
  11. I don't have Vintage Air, I am doing factory style air using original parts from a 1975 280Z.
  12. Great.....nice to see as my 75 has all the early 75 a/c components pulled from another 75 car so they should work. I doubt there was any difference between my 75 and your 78 a/c system.
  13. Nice job with the foam to keep air from escaping. I didn't think of that. I was looking more toward pics of both heat and air installed without dash so I could see how everything is arranged. Not looking forward to removing the dash and doing this. Did you have A/C to start with or just adding it like me? Great pic though...
  14. I have a 280Z and converting the door mirror(s) to 280ZX style. Anyone do this conversion and any issues mounting them? Did you use the ZX mounting brackets and if not what did you use? Thanks........
