  1. Identifying a transmission

    Hi folks, I picked up this transmission years ago which was mated to an L28 engine in a kit car... The tranny does not look like one that would have come with a 280ZX, does anyone recognise what it could have been in originally? I am having a garage clear out and could really do with finding out what it is exactly which hopefully may help someone in need of it. Thank you!

    Glad you're back on the road Gabe!
  3. Did I get ripped off?

    Personally, I would have just given them the $50 they asked for and take the other hub somewhere else.... If you were worried about the price they'd charge, you should have asked them how much it would be before they did the job.. if you don't agree a price with him then it's up to him how much to charge you, for him $50 seemed fair.
  4. Agree Tony. Thanks for the links, I also read about the Testors too - if I do find out the name of the BMW product I'll be sure to let you know.
  5. This looks more like it but the price....!!! http://www.kudosmotorsports.com/catalog/tomei-throttle-coat-throttle-body-butterfly-sealant-p-1946.html
  6. Thanks Tony, is this the stuff? https://www.cromwell.co.uk/shop/lubricants-and-chemicals/anti-seize-lubricants/d321r-molykote-lubricantspray-400ml/p/MLK7033410D?utm_campaign=pla+-+&utm_source=google&utm_medium=shopping-pla&utm_keyword=MLK7033410D&istCompanyId=6aa6787b-063e-4414-802d-129f235df603&istItemId=aqrxqqxlr&istBid=tztt Or do you know which one Nissan/BMW use?
  7. Thanks for the advice guys. Ryan - I had thought of this idea myself a few days ago and had dismissed it as too crazy.... I already have a synchronometer and a vacuum cleaner (not mine) and gave it a go today - after you giving me the confidence that its not such a mad idea... Amazingly these tools work perfectly and proves to show though that even a tiny bit of light makes the figures vastly different from a butterfly that is properly seated... Any other tips on getting them perfectly seated is appreciated.
  8. Hi Ryan, Thanks for your input, my throttle plates are for 40mm but I hope the screws are the same. Incidentally how well did yours seal when they were closed? Are you supposed to aim for even light all around them or no light/hardly any light? Can't seem to find any reference shots online.
  9. Hi folks, I need to order a JIS screwdriver to undo the butterfly throttle valves, but have no idea what size JIS Screwdriver I require, no one locally stocks JIS screwdrivers and I will have to buy mail order and hence would like to know the JIS size I need. Also, is there a source for these screws new as I used a normal Philips on them and you can tell on some of them. Any help will be most appreciated. Thanks.
  10. Thanks Steve... you have mail!!
