  1. What did Larry work on for you? Always good to know of someone who can work on a Z for those times you get stumped.
  2. I just moved down to Arroyo Grande, it's certainly nothing like the Bay Area in terms of the classic car scene. A few muscle cars, mostly garage queens. I don't think I've seen another Z since I've been down here. At least the weather is awesome for T-tops! -Eric
  3. I'll let the wheels go for $75 if someone can pick them up tomorrow. I believe I can find a set of lug nuts to go with them as well.
  4. Fiberglass 2+2 rear wing/spoiler. Bolts to the rear hatch, from MSA in the early 2000s, pretty sure it's this https://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic02a02e/50-1595 Asking $80
  5. Louver #2 - Mounts with a small hole for a pin hinge at the top and a flat-head locking screw at the bottom - $50 Gone
  6. Louver #1 - Mounts from a flat hinged piece at the top and a sliding latch at the bottom. $50 - Gone
  7. I'm moving, so up for sale is a bunch of my Z-parts collection. I'm in Montara (94037), pickup only please. I've moved to the Central Coast, just south of San Luis Obispo, 93420. From a 1981 280ZX that was parted out, everything worked perfectly when pulled. Energy suspension polyurethane sway bar bushings and end links, front and rear, brand new - $40 Set of four wheels, with center caps, could use light TLC. Tires are shot - $150 Brake booster - $20 $10 Rear brake calipers with brand new pads - $40 $20 Gauge cluster - $20 - $15 Broken stater motor (good for a core, should be rebuildable) - Free with anything else A couple rear hatch louvers from unknown years (will pull out and post pictures if anyone is interested)
  8. I've never had any luck removing roller pilot bearings with grease. The last one I removed, I ended up making a puller to do it, worked great as the bearing was rusted in and took a ton of force to remove. The idea is to cut a nut so it catches on the back of the inner race, and you can use a bolt bottomed out on the crankshaft to pull the nut out along with the bearing. From the misc. parts bin, I found a nut that was ever so slightly too large to fit in the center hole, then ground off the points to make it round and so it fits inside the bearing and can get behind the inner race. I then notched the nut on the grinder so 1/4 of it was cut off, one half of the top later. I squared off the cut and slightly rounded the cut with a hand file. The idea is that the cut on the nut catches on the bearing and keeps the nut from rotating when you turn the bolt. Thread the nut on to a nice long bolt, insert the entire assembly so the nut ledge catches on the inner race, jam an allen wrench or similar next to the nut and jam it in place so it doesn't simply slip back out through the hole, and use a large pair of pliers to keep the entire thing from spinning, then crank away on the bolt! The grinding may mess the threads up, I used a tap to clean things up, but you may be able to thread the bolt in from the un-cut side to clean things up, then turn the nut around. -Eric
  9. Oddly enough, this thread is still very relevant. I ended up changing to full-synthetic fluid and all noise went away. Then three weeks ago, all of a sudden, there was a clunk while I was parking and first and reverse don't first or reverse any more. Other gears still work, but I've got her parked while looking for a transmission that doesn't cost more than I paid for the car in the first place.
  10. Looking to by a 5-speed transmission for a non-turbo first-gen 300ZX. Any FS5W71C for a Z31 should work fine. I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area, Oakland specifically, but can drive around. -Eric
  11. Your car isn't toast, it is a car. When your car pops up all browned and crunchy, ready for butter, you should suspect it's toast. Get the factory service manual for the car, read it, love it. Especially the parts about the front suspension. Take a look at the TC rod, also called the strut rod. It should be securely bolted to the rear of the wheel well, and to the front suspension. If the nut on the back of it falls of, the rod breaks, or the sheet metal it normally attaches to rips out, it could cause the wheel to move forward. Definitely get under the car and take a GOOD look around, a real sanity check, but be EXTRA careful under it, as if you suspect suspension parts are loose, jacking/holding points that normally would/should be solid will not be.
  12. I'd like to see how they'd fare against a belt-fed machine gun that fires flaming chainsaws.
  13. Couldn't one just check the timing on the car? If the damper were slipping around the hub, the mark would be WAY off, and moving while the squealing it happening.
  14. I came across this in my various travels through the web. I wouldn't take it as writ, but it's an interesting opinion read. Names quite a few nice single malts to give you a good starting list. http://www.charm.net/~kmarsh/scotch.html -Eric
