  1. CONFIRMED L28 with RB25 Flywheel and 350Z Clutch

    Finally got around to installing this spacer and a new clutch/flywheel. It works beautifully and for anyone who has wondered, it required no grinding of the bellhousing for a T5.
  2. 280z Interior Parts

    Do you know if the tach works?
  3. '77 Working Radio

    I have the radio from my 280z which I tested out of curiosity and surprisingly it works very well. I don't plan on using it, so I figured I'd see what it is worth to someone who wants a period correct radio. Only downside is that it is missing the knobs.
  4. They are grounded through the beam selector stalk. Each time you click it, it swaps between grounding the high and low beams. If you just direct grounded the low beams, they would come on when you turn your headlights on and stay on when you turn on your highbeams. As for keeping amperage down in the steering column, it didn't accomplish that at all because all of the power goes through the steering column. I have a warped column cover because of it.
  5. I'd have to check the 71 wiring to see if it is the same as mine, but here is how the headlights in a 77 work. Each headlight has 3 wires. +12v, a highbeam ground, and a low beam ground. Turning the switch to turn the headlights on, connects power to the fusebox which then sends (+) power via separate fuses to each headlight. The highbeam stalk changes which beam is grounded. Both high and low are not grounded at the same time. I imagine you could energize both at the same time, but I'm not sure that the bulbs were designed for that and they might burn out quicker due to heat.
  6. LS1 Coil Bracket - SOLD

    This is the best photo I can find at the moment of it installed.
  7. LS1 Coil Bracket - SOLD

    I've got an LS1 Coil bracket (originally designed by Ron Tyler "RTz" I believe) that I intended to use, but have decided to go another direction. I originally purchased it from ZCCJDM and it did not come with any hardware, so you would need to source that yourself. It was originally sold with a light sanded finish, but being aluminum and getting moved around a few times in my garage, it needs a light sanding to get a uniform finish again (there aren't any real scratches though.) SOLD

  9. XTD Clutch opinions

    Is this the clutch you are referring to? https://www.ebay.com/itm/XTD-STAGE-3-DUAL-FRICTION-RACING-CLUTCH-KIT-FITS-03-06-350Z-03-07-G35-jdm/192450127795?fits=Model%3A350Z&hash=item2cceebe7b3:g:M9gAAOSw3ydV6grc&vxp=mtr I saw that they also have a Stage 3 that is a 6 puck, but this is the one I was leaning towards.
  10. Transmission options for 300hp

    Both Z32 and CD009 use the same input shaft spline and can use stock L28 clutches.
  11. Transmission options for 300hp

    It depends on how much you have to spend. The T5 is only rated to 265 lb-ft, although I believe there have been a lot of people have it hold more. The common options that I know of are T5 FS5W71C (aka KA transmission swap, also found in Non-Turbo Z31) ( http://atlanticz.ca/zclub/techtips/240sxtransmissioninstall/index.html ) Z32 Transmission + http://hokeperformance.squarespace.com/store/300zx-l28-transmission-adapter CD009 (Z33 Transmission) + http://hokeperformance.squarespace.com/store/l-series-6spd-transmission-adapter-03-06-vq35de T56 ( As for the stock speedometer, I'm not sure which of these had speedo cables originally, but there are adapters now that will drive your speedometer from an electrical signal if you decide to go with a transmission that can't directly drive your speedometer. )
  12. 240z / 280z Parts for sale

    No real damage, could use a little cleaning though.
  13. 240z / 280z Parts for sale

    Gas tank straps, with bolts. In the condition you would expect for a 40 year old vehicle. Only real damage is in the second pic...mishap with a sawzall caused the short cut. Both still have the rubber pad/strap. Pictures of the door panels are coming, I put them in the attic though and can't get into the attic at the moment for fear of waking the baby.
  14. 240z / 280z Parts for sale

    I do still have the gas tank straps, as well as the door panels. I'll get some pictures of both today. The door panels are indeed black, but don't come with any handles or cranks, it's just the panels themselves.
  15. 240z L28et Overheating

    I have a 280z and I know there is a height issue in the difference between the radiators, but I'm not sure if there is any other difference. As for A/C, it normally runs off the middle pulley on a L28et. I had an unknown 16" fan in there before that was 3.5" thick and ran into clearance issues with the tensioner pulley when recently installing A/C. Now I have a SPAL fan that is ~2.5" thick and have ~7/8" of clearance. I have a Champion 3-row radiator that measures 2.75" at the top, but the core is inset from the edge of the end tank by about 3/8" and my fan is just flat up against the core (no shroud.) *edit* Just looked, and if you have a Champion 4-row for your 240z, you should have ~.3" less clearance than I do.
