    Seat swap list for s30's

    I have a 240Z I'm working on and an 06 350Z. I love the seats on the 350. Very comfortable with good lateral support. So I found a set of power, heated leather seats from an '05 350Z on ebay for $500. They fit great after I trimmed the plastic storage trays off of of the door side of each seat. Left the bottom rail from the 240Z seats in place. Welded 2 3/16" transverse bars across the original 240 tracks and welded the 350Z bottom rails to the top of the 3/16" bars. You lose about 3/4" of height by leaving the lower 240Z rails, but I am six feet tall, and have about 4" of headroom. All in all, they are really comfortable and easy to install.

    S30/240z Wide Flares

    I talked to him today, and he didn't say he wouldn't do it, but he thinks (and I agree) that there is a pretty limited market for 240Z flares for 335/35-17 (or similar width) tires. If he decides he will consider it, I'll let you know and put you in touch with him.

    S30/240z Wide Flares

    I don't know. I should see Ralph sometime this week and will ask him. I'll let you know
  4. I have a 72 240Z with 6 liter LS2 and T56 6 speed. After the engine/trans install (by Dave - (Viperredls1z), we did a 4 wheel Willwood disc brake setup from Arizona Z Car and while I was doing that, I opted for the package with 5 x 4.5" lugs which gave me the option for larger tires and wheels. I got a set of wheels (11x17 rear and 9x17 front) and mounted Michelin 335/35-17 rears and 275/40-17 fronts. The car originally had hand built flares, but they were poorly done and in any case did not cover the larger tires. This gave me the perfect opportunity to do some paint and bodywork that I have been putting off. The car is in Ralph Garza's Body shop in Roseburg, Oregon for complete body work and paint. Check my facebook page: Datsun V8Z. The old paint is almost all gone,body panels are being aligned and this weekend they started on the flares. I made templates out of 1/2 inch plywood that would be the outside opening of the flares. The template radius is 1 1/2 inches larger than the tire radius. I located the center of the template 1" above the center of the wheels/tires, allowing for a bit more suspension travel. This weekend, Ralph and his buddy John from Portland (who has done SEMA class winners) started mocking up the flares. They are using rigid styrofoam blocks and spray foam to construct a workable surface, then filing and sanding down to a final shape. Hopefully this will be done this weekend, and the fiberglassing can begin. The side marker lights go away, and I'm adding turn signals behind the front grill (yet to be fabricated). No front bumper. Thin black fiberglass bumper? in the rear. It will be painted with many layers of Kandy Tangerine over gold metalflake with a black stripe down the center. This is my preferred daily driver, so we are adding some comfort touches: Lots of sound insulation, Honda S2000 power mirrors, leather reupholstery on the existing 350Z power/heated seats. Also adding a small overhead console for rear-view camera. I've attached a photo of the car before bodywork and a few pictures of it as it sits in the shop. I'll try to post every few days to keep everyone updated.

    S30/240z Wide Flares

    You might just try building them yourself! I have a 72 240Z with 6 liter LS2 and T56 6 speed. After the engine/trans install (by Dave - (Viperredls1z), we did a 4 wheel Willwood disc brake setup from Arizona Z Car and while I was doing that, I opted for the package with 5 x 4.5" lugs which gave me the option for larger tires and wheels.

This gave me the perfect opportunity to do some paint and bodywork that I have been putting off. The car is in Ralph Garza's Body shop in Roseburg, Oregon for complete body work and paint. Check my facebook page: Datsun V8Z. The first big project was fender flares. I made templates out of 1/2 inch plywood that would be the outside opening of the flares. The template radius is 1 1/2 inches larger than the tire radius. I located the center of the template 1" above the center of the wheels/tires, allowing for a bit more suspension travel.

Hopefully this will be done this weekend, and the fiberglassing can begin. I have included a few pictures, and there are a lot more on the Datsun V8Z facebook page. Good luck!
  6. I am looking to buy a new or very good used ring and pinion set in 4.10 or 4.36 ratio for a long nose R200. Will pay reasonable price.

    Viscous LSD For Sale

    I have a comlete short nose R200 rear end (pumpkin, 4.08 ring and pinion, Viscous LSD unit). $350 plus shipping from 97470. I have never had this rear end installed. I bought it as being in very good condition. I took the aluminum finned cover off to inspect it, and it looks good. It will need a new cover gasket before filling. [email protected] PayPal

    ********NISSAN 350Z SEATS FOR SALE*********

    I did this conversion with my 72Z. Had to trim the plastic pocket off of the outside of each seat. Fit is snug, but this is a great addition to an old Z.

    CLSD and VLSD for sale

    I have a Precision Gear "Power Brute" CLSD unit for R200 for sale. I have about 20,000 miles on it - never raced. It was set up a little tight for me when it came from Precision Gear. When I had it installed, I used Redline friction modifier with the gear lube. It was fine for a short time, but then it would chirp a little going around slow speed (parking lot) corners. I put another small bottle of Redline and it smoothed right out, but would only last 5000 miles or so, then would start chirping again. I ended up changing rear end lube and adding two bottles of LSD additive at each oil change. I think you can change the preload on the clutch pack by using shims if you know what you are doing, which I don't. I bought a Quaife LSD unit, which I highly recommend, but it was $1250. If you plan to use this "Power Brute" for drags or drifting, it is probably set up for your needs. If not, changing the preload should fix it. $650 + Shipping from 97470. Also have a complete short nose R200 4.08 viscous LSD - pumpkin, ring and pinion and VLSD unit. I have never had it open, but it was sold to me as being in good to great shape. $400 + Shipping from 97470. PayPal Email me at [email protected]
  11. Sorry - didn't know the rules (should have). What donation level is required? Thanks. Dave
  12. I have done a lot of research on this and didn't find the answer (or found it but didn't understand it). I have a 72z with a 280Z long nose R200, 3.73 gears and a Quaife helical gear LSD that accepts 12mm or 10mm bolts. I want lower gearing for acceleration and have a T56 with 0.5 sixth gear, so cruising RPM will be no problem. I found a VLSD with 4.08 gears from a 91 300ZX (purchased in a short nose R200). It is on the way - I haven't seen it yet. Will the ring and pinion from the VLSD bolt into my long nose R200 with Quaife differential? Any help will be appreciated. If I missed the answer to this in my research, I apologize.

    Gleason Torsen R200 LSD 4.10

    Hi zychotic. If you still have the R200, a have a few questions. I have a 72-Z w/ LS2 and T56. The rear end is R200 w/ Precision Gear LSD unit, 3.70 gears and CV axels. The LSD has very little wear and no racing, but on slow speed, tight turns (parking lot), it chatters a bit, and I am interested in a TBD, both for smoothness and strength. I am also interested in 4.10 gears. Is this unit actually a Gleason Torson unit or a Quaiffe or OBX? Also is this a complete rear end w/ casing? Thanks. d-phlip Dave Philippi 541-430-3141 [email protected]
  14. You might check with Ron Sessions at Streetrodengines.com. I bought a new LS2, complete w/ accessories (PS, AC, Alt, Computer, Painless wiring harness, etc. Also included was bell housing, clutch w/ slave cylinder, T56 and Corvette motor mounts, all new. Price delivered to Roseburg Oregon from Texas was just under $10,000. http://forums.hybridz.org/showthread.php?t=120795

    Seat swap list

    No, the seat controls don't contact my thigh. They are recessed below the surface of the seat. My seats I think are 05, and and they are almost identical to 06 350Z seats. I'm 6'0 and 200 lbs. They fit me perfectly.
