  1. I recently picked up my RB25, and after looking at the crazy high prices for transmission/engine mounts and reading some of the reviews I figured it wouldn't hurt to give it a go myself. If it works out, great, if not then I'll buck up and pay the money for the pre-fabbed ones. Anyways, I decided to start with the transmission mount as it seemed easier and It would hold my engine in place beter for the motor mounts. First things first, I took the old transmission mount off of the 4 speed transmission, and it bolts up perfectly to the 5speed RB tranny. I was pleasantly surprised! That meant I could at least use the original mount to an extent. Then, I put the engine in place to get measurements. I pushed it almost as far back as I could towards the firewall. I noticed that the mckinney mounts seemed to bolt the engines straight down, but it seemed like you'd have to modify the trans tunnel in order to have the shifter go through. I wanted my shifter to be in more of a stock location, and it wouldn't pop through until I pushed it farther back. Then, I crawled under and got some measurements. These probably aren't;t universal and probably won't work for everyone, but what I got was this: The original mounting area allowed the transmission mount to be 14 inches long. The new area I was mounting was 10". The original mounting holes were 12.25 inches apart in the middle of the holes, with the other hole being directly center. It was also farther back in the tunnel by 5". I figured the easiest way to do this would be to make some sort of jig, so I put together a crude assembly with just some shelf wood and some nails. I measured the above measurements, cut the ends off of the tranny mount 2" in each side, allowing it to fit in the new location. Then, I took some 1"x 2" bar I had lying around and just eyeballed it basically, holding it above and marking it with a pencil, then cutting it along the lines and shaving it as needed. I then tacked it in place, got under and double checked it and everything fit really well. Probably nto perfect, but it seems like it is pretty much perfect. I then pulled it back out and welded it all together. My welds are supreme, I know. I also cut a corner out of the passenger side tranny mount thing that I need to go in and weld up. The Speedo sensor, as many already know, doesn't fit in that area without that being modified. Also, a little plug for grinding masks. I bought this a few years back after cutting my lip off with this very grinder. I wised up and decided I wanted protection across my whole face. Yesterday, there mustve been some sort of manufacturing error with the disc I was using and it exploded while in use. The biggest chunk hit me right in the face, but thanks to this bad boy I'm all good. I'm curious everyone's thoughts! do you think this will old, assuming my professional quality welds penetrated well? Of does it need to be more centered across?

  5. I have a Swiss cheesed 1979 280zx Naturally Aspirated 5 speed built in 1/79 VIN is HS130130682 and the odometer says 83686. The tabs expired in 2013 and the owner says it ran when he parked it (about 3 years), I'm currently attempting to get the engine running, its not seized and its got spark I'll be attempting to get it a good fuel source in the next few days. I'm pulling anything with value off the car please post here if you want to buy something or want me to pull/check the condition of a part I can take pictures of them. None of the body panels are usable. I personalty have no experience with 280zx's (I got a 240z). So I have no clue what the value of some of these parts are, make me an offer. If the rear end is a R200 when I end up pulling it I'm keeping it, if it ends up being a R180 its for sale.

  6. Hello, I am looking for a trans shifter to use in my 1970 240z, the previous owner put a 5 speed in and cut the trans tunnel and Console. from what I have read, I will have to cut and bend\weld a shifter to get it to work. also looking for a 70-71 console. Thanks Chris
  7. Hey All, I've searched all over for this topic and can't quite find what I'm looking for. Part of it may be my being green in the drivetrain area. I took a 76 280z (CA) and put the motor and 5spd from a 77 280z (2+2) in. After getting everything in place, the car drives and goes through gears 1-4 okay. It won't go into 5th no matter what and has a little trouble with reverse. From what I've read this sounds like a shift fork replacement is in order. I don't see any interference issues with the shifter and tunnel. 1) Would you put your money on this needing a fork replacement? 2) If so, I assume this requires pulling the trans... I'm a little hesitant with my skill level to make any assumptions at this point and start dissecting 3) Any guides or advice on approaching this? Note: I do have the 4 speed I pulled out of the car if there is anything I can use from it. Sorry for the naivety... I'm dying to finally get some summer fun out of this thing. Thanks!
  8. So I've gotten an '84 Maxima 5 speed, and this weekend I've managed to pull out everything all the way up to the crank shaft. Need weekend it'll be time to put it all back together but I've gotta go on a little shopping spree first. Gonna need a new starter, shifter bushings, etc... My questions are, I can't tell if the wear on the flywheel teeth is "too much" or not. I also have conflicting ideas about tampering with the rear main seal. I figure "while I'm down there" I should put a fresh one in. But I also have that "if it ain't broke don't fix it" feeling. Here are some pics of the flywheel teeth and the rear main seal. So, sometime when attempting to crank the Z, I'd get a sharp startling grinding sound. The starter has never unexpectedly disengaged, but it has sometimes failed to engage initially. I don't know if it's mostly due to how much the starter is worn or the flywheel or both. The flywheel's not missing any teeth, they're all just a bit deformed. Also, is that oil on the end of the crank a problem? How easy is it to screw up a rear main seal installation? Thanks! Also, plenty more pictures where those came from here.
  9. I am posting this for a friend, who is looking for a 77-83 280Z/ZX 5 speed transmission. Please email him directly, he is located in NJ. [email protected] Thank you, 1978280z5spd
  10. So I saw youtube video of a guy with the diesel om606 motor in it, and after a lot of searching I cannot find a clean cut manual transmission swap. I did see someone on here was trying to swap in a 300zxtt tranny to the mercedes motor, can anyone help or have some insight as to how to go about getting a manual tranny on the motor. I'm sure eventually their will be more questions about custom engine mounts and all of that, but that will be far down the road.
