  1. I'm looking for a windshield and driver side window for a 75 280Z 2-seater. Im also looking for a decent condition tire well as mine has some rust. thanks!
  2. Looking for a project Z car, any 75 and older will due, but might consider a smogged 76+. I'm centrally located in Pismo beach CA - anywhere in CA is fine, might even consider other states for the right project. Looking under 4K at the moment.

    Quafe R200 LSD install

    I just picked up a 76 r200 and a brand new quafe LSD. I've never opened up a diff before - any recommendations? Can anybody point me to a how-to? thanks

    Quafe R200 LSD install

    Thanks for the link - i did read that process but its a little over my head. For one - i am not sure what "backlash" is? I was hoping there was something with pictures or diagrams or a tutorial for the diff newbie. thanks,
  6. Still looking - about to place an order with TTT. thanks.
  7. I'm looking to refresh my suspension for my 75 280z. Looking for coilover and aftermarket control arms, preferable techno toy tuning but open to other brands. I'm also looking for an R200 to swap in for my stock R180. Let me know if you have anything that you are looking to get rid of. I do have so parts to trade if you are looking for Retro-spec fender flares, 240z calipers, 240z inspection lids. thanks

    NEW OWNER: 75 280Z w/ LT1

    Thanks so much for the help - it gives me a good place to start looking. It is much appreciated.
  9. I just picked up this badboy about 2 weeks ago. Runs strong and shifts smooth. Has a Corvette LT1 engine with matching 4-speed auto, engine has intake, larger throttle body, competition cams, headers, power steering. Suspension is okay, seems to have been refreshed at somepoint but I'm thinking of going the coilover route and some aftermarket control arms to push back the rear wheel a little. Also looking to change out the wheels at some point but one of the biggest disappointments is the stock R180 with Open diff. Whats the cheapest way to get an LSD in here, i think its a 3.54 and seems to work pretty well for all around driving running about 2500 RPM at 80 mph but i'm not opposed to a 3.7. I'm considering welding the 180 to keep it intact while i figure out a r200 LSD swap. Any advice is appreciated.

    NEW OWNER: 75 280Z w/ LT1

    So at idle its running about 35, when i unplug the vacum line it bumps up to about 40, but as soon as i turn off the engine it drops to less than 15 instantly. When i turn the key on, the fuel pump runs and pressure is about 40, but as soon as the fuel pump stops is drops to below 15 instantly again. It also looks to be an aftermarket part.

    NEW OWNER: 75 280Z w/ LT1

    Thanks for the heads up, i'll give it a google. Actually - they have a fuel pressure gauge installed in the engine bay - is there a number is should be?

    NEW OWNER: 75 280Z w/ LT1

    Hopefully somebody can help me with this - the LT1 is hard starting in the mornings. I turn on the ignition and the fuel pump runs for about seconds, the car starts up pretty quickly but doesn't have enough gas to keep it going and will stall out. I turn the key on and off to cycle the pump a few times and it helps but still not enough. Is there a way to make the pump cycle longer? Should i install a larger pump? any input is appreciated. thanks

    280Z Half Shafts

    If NOLANT178 didn't pick up 1&2 - i'll take them.
  14. Cool, i'm interested - can you send me a picture? I tend to make it to LA every couple of weeks.
  15. Hey all, I’m a Datsun newbie! Always wanted a 240z/510 project and finally made it happen over the weekend. I picked up the 73 Datsun 250 miles away from home with the “guaranteed to make the drive” from the owner – which it did not but we’ll get to that later. 1973 Datsun with a SBF 306 engine with GT40p heads, single plane intake, 750 Holley HP carb, speedway headers, 3” exhaust, manual valve-body c-4 transmission with SFI bell housing and 9” stall converter, TCI shifter, R200 posi rear end, Meziere water pump. I realize the 750 carb is probably too big, I think its what the PO had around and tuned it work. Motor seems to run strong, starts up pretty easily from a cold start and sounds like a beast. I however am a complete V8 newbie. Here are some pics of the car/engine. I ended up having to tow the car after 40 miles of driving as smoke started to fill the cab, when I pulled over it seemed like transmission fluid was dripping onto the exhaust. Upon examination we found the speedometer (speedometer and tach not hooked up) cable opening was closed with a rubber bushing and a wingnut. I tightened up the wingnut and have taken it for some short trips and it has not leaked yet. So that seems to have fixed the problem. I am not a huge auto guy and would prefer a 5-speed. I don’t even know where to start with wrapping my head around what that would entail. I have 2 large questions at the moment. The first is the transmission which has no transmission cooler – and it not hooked up to the radiator for cooling – is this a problem? The second is the flywheel – it looks like casing was trimmed back for some reason and the flywheel is exposed – is this a problem? Thanks for any help.

    Just aquired - 73 240Z with SBF 306

    Just aquired - 73 240Z with SBF 306

    Thanks for the response. I went ahead and picked up the mishimoto - now i just need to get around to installing it. I'm assuming i should use it as a stand-alone cooler - and not hook it up through the radiator?

    Just aquired - 73 240Z with SBF 306

    Any thoughts on if this would solve my 'no transmission cooler' problem? I'm looking for something to get me by until i can switch to the 5-speed. https://www.americanmuscle.com/mishimoto-auto-trans-cooler.html

    Just aquired - 73 240Z with SBF 306

    Family life and motorcycle priorities kept me away from the Z but I'm hoping to finally get the wheels back on this weekend. I decided to watch my budget and try to keep the mods in control which is really against my nature. Meaning I'm still pouring money into it but decided not to go to coilovers or aftermarket control arms, rods, ect. I Rebuilt the rear suspension a couple months ago. New poly bushings all around, blasted and painted the everything, Vogtland lowering springs w/ stagg shocks. The new wheels and tires were rubbing on the old suspension and are still rubbing so picked up a fender roller and am hoping to fix that. (picture is before lowering springs). The front gets the same new shock/springs, bushings, blasting & paint, TC rods got the radial bearings, new wheels bearings, stoptech rotors, SW-8 calipers, Silver Mine pads, steel lines, ball joints and tie-rods.
  20. As the title states, looking for a 79-81 brake master cylinder. let me know if you have a spare lying around. thanks!

    WTB: 280ZX 79-81 brake master cylinder

    Thanks for the heads up, I walked into O'Reillys and it was 40 bucks OTD, should be in store in 2 days and i'm hoping to get everything installed this weekend. That does look nice - hopefully i won't be dissappionted in the O'Reilly rebuild. Will the reservoirs from the original 240Z fit?

    WTB: 280ZX 79-81 brake master cylinder

    I have a 240Z and switching to the s12-8 Toyota calipers and the how-to mentioned the change to a 15/16 master from the years 79-81. I personally don't know what changed.
  23. Looking for a FRONT-RIGHT strut housing for my 1973 240Z. Anybody have one lying around? I have a nice set of inspection lids - primered and ready to go if you are interested in a trade - or of course, CASH. Thanks FOUND! thanks HybridZ and Z240!
