  1. Finally getting to finish my brake rebuild but after chasing leaks (all new Stainless steel lines) I bled the MC and all four corners (wilwood 6/4 setup) the pedal is still soft and goes to the floor. I would expect it be firm and not allow for full travel. Is this a booster rod adjustment? Also using the 280Z booster
  2. Ordered a Tilton 75 TIL-75-875U and there's no way it will fit. the diameter of the C MC will rub on the 8.5 MC. Running a T56 and Wilwood 6/4 on the Z. Anyone else have this problem? Ideas? Seems like I would need a 8" or smaller MC or alternate Clutch MC than the recommended Tilton 75 series... ugh
  3. picked up 21503 but no way this "fits" in any direction. Is this used to splice and cut like KTM did or is 21712 the actual LS to Datsun Radiator the working #? Not sure I follow socorob's post -", Gates 21712, and Goodyear 61457. The other half that goes to the Datsun radiator is an original for the Datsun, Gates PN 20776." Would be nice to have some definitive posts and pics: Datsun Radiator- Upper: 21503 Lower: xxxxx Chevy / Aftermarket Radiator - Upper:22478 Lower:22625 Alternative solutions: Split lower with 1.5" tubing See threadhttp://forums.hybridz.org/
  4. Radiator ordered. Need to get back to work on her and order tubing for the CAI and oil cooler
  5. We get there between 8am (hard core) and 10 (lazy) - I try to get up there by 9 and hang out for a few hours - we have a great turn out of Z's. old, new - GT-R's G35/7 ... usually about 15-25 show up.
  6. Cr@p- looks like I reversed my inlet/ return - check this one out- it's better http://www.hotwireauto.com/?page=support
  7. Hey 280Zjake- I should be there- park over by the one shelter- that's where the Carolina Z Club parks (I am the CZC Treasurer) - We talked about those long tubes right? We will have to chat-- Mikey303- I had to check a few places on the routing of the C5 filter. http://www.speedinc.com/ls1-ls2-lsx-conversion-fuel-filter-w-regulator-6-an.html Finished routing my fuel lines last night- all hooked up. Now to disassemble and pump some cleaner through and reassemble. (tomorrow...)
  8. thanks! My first Z was an 82 280ZX Coupe- White with red - This is my 10th - another Z white w/red - I figured since I gutted the interrior - I'd keep the red alive in places for the look. Turned out pretty nice so far i think.
  9. Love it Mike...Can't wait to see it run and get down the track
  10. I figured it was about time to start my thread on my 240Z that I've been building for a few years.... To start the background on the Z; I found it on ZCar.com in central Florida however it did live half it's life in Texas. Pictures looked pretty decent for a 72 and mostly unmolested. It had recent paint, classic hubcaps and upgraded 280Z block; 5spd and R200 diff transplant. After reviewing the pics and video, I made up my mind to commit to this one. The 175/70-14 donuts were so bad; they almost looked like original tires but what the hell, she was going to be a track car- right? I contacted t
  11. Crap- Missed that note at the beginning- thanks bfg.
  12. How much does this weigh? With all the foam, extra metal, bondo and three coats of Fiber Glass- it must weigh 60 lbs now?
  13. Yep, it's the 39 spline so I'll have to go with the upgrade or eat it- so I'd rather upgrade all said and done. It's the better choice anyway just didn't want to shell out the 700 this year...and thought they could be swapped out - nothing on Ross's website about the larger flange or spline count - what I ordered is this -http://www.modern-motorsports.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=32_53&products_id=65 and as it states - "These billet pieces only match up with 280Z stub axles which ARE stronger than 240Z units so if you have the chance to upgrade from 240Z stub axles and companion fl
  14. yes, I'll post some photo's in the am.
  15. So I purchased a R230 Conversion from Ross @ MM and everything came in about a month. I was unaware of his health conditions as I forged on with by build putting together my Q45 1/2 shafts and then sourcing 280Z stub axles from a friend in Richmond (27 spline) confirming it's 1.09 in OD. So the other day I started down the rear strut build and mated up the companion flange to the 280Z axle flange. Problem identified (ok you're building a hybrid Z, these come up all the time right...) so the companion flange sent is 1.25. I had emailed Ross to no avail when I posted a comment about this in a
  16. I'm not on the forums that much and had just bought some parts from him this spring and saddened to hear the news of his sickness and now passing. God Speed Ross, RIP.
  17. I bought some R230 companion flange from MM and sourced 280Z stub axles (27 spline) but now appears that the R230 companion flange is 30MM in diameter vs the 280Z stub axle that is about 27mm so it's put a halt to my build... I've emailed Ross four times without a reply so I have to ask the experts if the Stub axle is wrong or was the wrong companion flange sent that is at issue?
  18. WTB 280Z Stub Axles, Brake Booster for build. PM me for price/shipping to 28105
  19. Anyone have this information? It seems to be a mystery no one wants to share. ???
  20. You guys need to come up to ZDAYZ! This year we have over 700 registered and 600+ cars running around the dragon and surrounding area. Always a good time- make your reservations now for the 10th anniversary next May!
  21. Would Blake be a happy camper if I wanted set #20? Sounds like a long journey for these Long Tube headers. I'll post my build later but debating to take them to a local header company (KOOKS) to build these for me...Thoughts?
  22. I am looking at new wheels for my 72 and soon to be LS1/T56 transplant and was looking at wheels. Yes, BBK will be installed, most likely the Wilwood. Checking Offset Calculator for differenecs, I was looking at a 9" width wheel with 12 offset that would take me to -1.5" difference. That seems reasonable. So looking at all the posts, what would be the max "Suspension Side Change" a 240Z could handle with coilovers? 2" 2.5"? Anyone know? BTW- I do like a deep dish (lip) look if anyone can point me in the right direction. Seems like the 16x10 steel wheel option is out there too
