    Wanted: Early 280Z (75-76) Gas tank

    Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
  2. Trying to convert my 240Z to Megasquirt and would like to keep it as stock appearing as possible. Looking for an EFI Gas tank from the early 280Z with the full size spare, IIRC it's the 1975-76 cars. Located in Southern Indiana. Thanks! Bob

    2 stroke

    I never said all two strokes are valveless and since everyone has the intelligence to put in a 0.03 second search term they already know that. What is a pissing contest is jumping down my throat for stating once in that entire thread that I said ALL two strokes are valveless, which I did not. I was clearly referring to that individual engine. Unless to you with gearbox vs with is an obvious simple typographical error and the semantic It's referring to THIS engine in THIS thread and not every single two stroke ever made in the history of ever, and that your witch hunt isn't now as equally a pedantic pissing contest as my own, then whatever helps you sleep at night tony.

    2 stroke

    It does in this engine's case. Unless you want to count the reed valve packs. Still not enough to add up to 900lbs. But you already knew that. Just dense for density's sake.

    2 stroke

    What? You're telling me a 2-stroke, 3.6L V8 weighs as much or more than an all cast iron 5.9L Cummins and near, or double the weight of an all cast iron 350 chevy even though it's missing the entire valve train? I'm going to need some more proof there.

    OM603/606 swap into a '74 260z

    Long block is about the same size as an L28, I have it's gas counterpart sitting next to one. The 300ZX trans will not bolt up to it and you'll need an adapter if you want to go that route. MBZ made some manuals that will fit: the 717.410/.411 from the cosworth, the 717.430 from the 300E and 190E 2.6 and the 6MT from the later cars which used a 2.3L M111 engine. Additionally the gearboxes from the 2.7L Diesels across the pond will fit. If you go with a 6MT in a 240Z you'll probably want a 717.663/.668 which would probably hold 450-500whp assuming you don't regularly launch the car on drag slicks, cossie dog leg a little less. Flywheel requirement will be gearbox dependent. The Factory FI turo manis suck except for a rare non EGR 603 mani, so otherwise you'll be on your own building one. If you want to go 606 route you'll want an OM603 Turbo M pump, as those do not require the computer and have the turbo ALDA. Non turbo 606's can make 3-400 (IIRC) hp when boosted as well (smaller rods), but they also have better cams if you want to snag some for your turbo 606. Additionally all the engines are front sump, although the W140 is a sort of mid sump deal that might clear the cross member. The M104 oil pain might fit, otherwise you'll have to go fishing in europe for a pan, or make your own.

    Mercedes OM606 swap with a manual transmission

    What kind of power goals are you interested in? This will determine how much of a challenge mating a manual will be to your OM601/2/3/5/6

    Datsun 510 R200 complete CV axle kit

    You can get end caps for the porsche style joints: That said I'll probably jump on one of these when they're available if the cost is reasonable to my original plan of buying his outboard stubs+CV kit. Are the outers based on the 27 spline or the (IIRC 38 spline subs?

    S30 Craigslist RSS Feeds

    So I added them without problem. However the issue I'm getting is that they will not update. It lists all postings as previously read which means they won't display natively in feedly.

    !!!!!SOLD!!!!!! #00655 01/70 240Z SHELL ONLY

    Does it have the title? Edit: didn't read fully, PM sent.
  13. I cant DD my car anymore because apparently old Z cars aren't "professional", but alas when I did, the biggest things I did to make it reliable was nix the mechanical fuel pump and put a reliable electric unit it, got rid of the crappy lights and put in relays. Between that and making sure the carbs are well tuned was all I needed. In the winter, just washing it as often as possible (2-3x a week) to keep the road salt off of it, and making sure the heater circuit was working well and the fan could keep the windows defrosted.
  14. If that's the case than go for it. The M120, IMO is worth the trouble for the sound alone if it's only for a year, and it's getting to the point were the 500 and 600's are pretty much at the bottom of the depreciation curve.
