Hi everyone, I already introduced myself, but now im going to finally get to workin on my Z. I got this Z back in Nov/Dec and after so many months of my Z waiting at my work, she finally made it home this past week. I stored her at work while My wife and I found and bought our first home together, anyways she drives, but she has a bad carb that leaks and the motor is really tired, and the exahust by the looks was put on by a monkey since not all the pieces were fit on correctly making it leak exhaust everywhere. Almost everything is original to this Z except the tranny, the shitty radio I ripped out because it was from kragen lol, and the lovely black carpet you put in house floors. Anyways today my friend and I got the transmission out since its not going into 5th gear while in motion, also took off most of the exhaust piping, and popped the valve cover off to take a look under to see how dirty she looked. I also found a piece broken off my cam gear. Let me know what you guys think. I'll throw up some pictures and a link to my youtube thread as I will be posting videos as well.
My goal for this car for now is to get the car to be at least reliable to drive. I want to be able to drive it around and have some fun ride in style. At the same time I'll be attempting to build a stroker motor with triple mikunis. That will take awhile to gather parts and money, I wil also be taking the entire body apart and trying to restore everything myself for the most part. I've never done this before, so I'll def be asking a lot of questions.http://www.youtube.c...0Z?feature=mhee
Theres a link to my youtube videos, Ive posted a bunch since I got the car, I was able to get the car going with my lunch breaks at work. An how for about 2 weeks and she was running. Badly, but running. anyways let me know what you guys think. THANKS!!
