  1. You guys might want to look at what 240hoke is doing with Mat's install. He's a real engineer and a real nice guy! See his work at: https://www.facebook.com/hokeperformance chris
  2. 225/50 on 16 X 8 wheels will fill the stock fender-wells. It's actually a lot of tire under our small light cars. If you go with flares later, you will probably want more rim width and rubber to fill them out. chris
  3. Hey Aux, You didn't mention the 9" Ford for the rear. You gonna fab a 4-link or just hook it to the stock suspension? chris
  4. I do not have anything else to add that hasn't already been said. I can only say that johnc will be missed! Godspeed and Rest in Peace! chris
  5. I think I would notify Arizona Z Car before I did anything. That doesn't look right. I'm thinking that hole should be perpendicular to the top and bottom face of the part. I have a pair of the Datsun original forged short knuckles and they are just like stock except the tie rod hole is closer to the ball joint than stock. chris
  6. I built my own 350 with the help of the local automotive machine shop. My friend bought a GM 290 HP 350 crate motor for his 66 Chevelle and another friend put the same motor in his 37 Terraplane. Both installs went well and are quite peppy. Both vehicles are street driven mostly. chris
  7. Is the bearing race a somewhat "loose" fit as opposed to a "press" fit in this area? If so see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fretting Sorry, link fairy not working today. chris
  8. Since you are wanting to do coil overs, floors and frame rails, you need a welder! Buy yourself a MiG welder that uses gas and get a bottle. Practice, practice, and practice some more. Do your own welding because it is going to be difficult to even find someone who will tackle floors and frame rails for less than the cost of the welding machine. My .02 centavos. chris
  9. Can usually find something here. Might have to use one or two adapters/fittings. https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productselection.asp?Product=3 chris
  10. Just like I always said: Anything worth doing is worth doing to excess! Damn good job! chris
  11. Check with http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/123357-half-shaft-sale/ Could be day late and dollar short..... chris
  12. Bet the guys driving the supercars had no clue what you and your son were rollin, much less the dedication required to (re)build and maintain the Z! As I said earlier, good job! chris
  13. Man, that turned out beautiful! I wish I could see it in person in the sunlight! Hate to think what your restoration must have cost in both dollars and elbo grease but, the result is well worth it! Good job! chris
  14. Check Black Dragon? http://www.blackdragonauto.com/zZxCatalog.htm chris
  15. Nice looking car. Hope the rest of it is as good as the outside looks! chris
  16. Nice job! Always seems to take more time and money to do things right! chris
  17. Like this? I have a similar tank and, because it is longer than it is wide, it would install better (room-wise) this way. Anyone else installed one like this? Did it work OK? Any other problems? I asked Gabe at TTT but he couldn't remember who's car this was. Thanks in advance! chris
  18. Are you planning on building a drag racer? The chassis kit is set up for a 4 link. chris
  19. I think it is closer to $450! http://www.modern-motorsports.com/z31-half-shafts.html I'm wanting to do the same thing, I have the Z31 turbo axles but want to change out the shaft to insure a good fit in my 260Z. Black Friday Sale????? chris
  20. Nice looking car! The suspension has been modified so look to see if you are "riding on the bump stops" or, do you have enough compression travel before something bottoms out causing the bumpy ride? chris
  21. I am going to use the front pinion flange, it is still on the rear end. What do you consider to be a fair price for the output flanges? chris
  22. Got these off my 280Z parts car. Have no clue as to value. 50 bux shipped? chris
