  1. I'm replacing the OEM harmonic balancer. The ATI makes a couple of different harmonic balancers (different weights, different diameters) http://www.atiracing.com/products/dampers/charts/damnissan.htm 917801 is 5.45lbs and 7.074" diameter 918040 is 3.9lbs and 6.325" diameter This is for a L28ET build. We're going to be using a SDS (Simple Digital Systems EMS) with crank ignition. So magnets will be added to the balancer. Any recommendation on which balancer to go with? Should we forego the ATI altogether?
  2. We did an install of the Wizard Cooling Performance Radiator into our 240Z. 2.9L (overbored 2.8L) with E31 head and flat top pistons. Nice construction. https://wizardcooling.com/1970-1973-datsun-240z-aluminum-radiator/
  3. Has anyone used the above Tach Adapter with SDS? I have the EM5-6F (from SDS) for 240Z turbo swap.

    R200 CLSD

    I was torn between the R200CLSD and the R180 LSD conversion from a WRX STi. For my set-up ... a 240Z with a 2.8L (E31 & flat tops) and triple webers ... the R180 route was the way to go. It was easier and lighter. I used John Coffey's stub axles and it was a simple bolt in. If I look at the cost of the cost of the R180, the stub axles, and the cost of rebuilding the 1/2 axles professionally ... it was about $1,000. So the R200 at $1000 on eBay seems like a decent deal. The R180 I have was 3.7 as well. If I were building a higher output turbo motor set-up ... I'd consider the R200 and also go with a CV conversion.
  5. When putting a L28ET into a 240Z chassis - does the new (swapped) engine use a cable throttle or does it use the old bell-crank rod and linkage setup?
  6. I ended up going with the non-vented hood. I now have an OEM NOS 280Z hood that's going to be sold off. Hopefully someone in the Colorado area can use one. I don't want to ship this.
  7. Got the complete package of reproduced rubber parts from Steve and they're all top notch and nicely labeled in their individual packages. I highly recommend these.
  8. If you sold a two-piece JDM gnose kit for $600, someone got a steal.
  9. Here you go ... and it's 10% off http://www.zccjdm.com/catalog.php/azcarbum/dt46936/
  10. I didn't mean to imply that I wasn't going to use them. I just thought the MSA vents were cool. Haven't decided on which direction I'll go just yet.
  11. The tabco piece is smaller than what I have. If it works for you then great. I'll post my pieces for sale in a few days in the classified section
  12. I saw that Motorsport Auto hood vent 'solution'. I also have OEM (new) vents that came with the hood. Based on the pictures (thanks) I'll likely go with the 280Z hood. I like that MSA vent. It's a bit more of a modern look.
