  1. I’ll add to this post, as it’s me over at CZCC with that for sale post. I have since found the matching 5020F front springs, and I also have two sets of those! All brand new. I’ve lowered the price to $100 per set of 4 (2-5020F and 2-5020R) Mind you the total lack of response to this thread might indicate interest in these springs is pretty low, but who knows. Send me an email to z240@shaw.ca if you’re interested.
  2. Answer is no. The 5 speed counter shaft has a long extension at the back of the intermediate plate that hangs all the 5th gear stuff. 1/2/3 gears are part of the counter shaft. Can't swap counter shafts between 4/5 speeds. You "can" swap the 4th gear pair (B trans only) as they come off the shafts. You can swap 5th gear gears between 5 speeds. Since the 4 gear pair ratio affects all the other ratio's you could mix and match a bit between 5 speeds to get some interesting ratio's. I have a truck 5 speed and a close ratio 83 zx 5 speed that if you put the close ratio 4th gear set in, you get these pretty interesting ratio's including a really nice high mileage overdrive. Here are the stock truck ratio's. Couldn't tell you exactly which year this is from, the bell housing is the rotated one that puts the engine vertical. Rest of it is pure 71B. And here is what you get by swapping in the close ratio (CR) 4th gear set into that truck gear set. I'm going to try this and see how it feels to drive. Here are the regular gaggle of 5 speed ratio's for comparison

  4. Remember the biggest difference in 240 vs 260/280 column covers is the "angled up" right side stalk on the 260/280. This makes the opening for that stalk in the cover different. (More hole in the top half). You can trim the opening larger to fit if you use a 240 on a later column. The 77-78 covers are much larger and wider than earlier ones, and aren't really backward compatible. Another potential entry in the "One of these things is not like the other" thread I keep meaning to start.
  5. Drop me a line if you can't find one closer to home. Z240@shaw.ca
  6. The early and late racks (roughly 240 and 280) had a different width to the flanges on the left side. You likely have a 280 (wide) flange rack and a narrow set of 240 bushings in there. Look at energy suspension web site to get the PN's of the two bushings. 10101 and 10102. ?
  7. i can find you a hazard switch for your 75. send me a email to z240@shaw.ca Seems I have both the 4x2 later 77/78 connector and the early 3x3 connector style. Both are 7 active pins.
  8. Yes, SIr Richard, 'tis I. Hmmmm, if I rent a U-haul, fill all my rain barrels with premium to sell at the hill, I could probably pay for my hotels. I don't need a lid on those barrels, do I?
  9. Welcome to the club. It's slop in the CV internal splines. Apparently this is designed slop for off road or some such. There have been threads somewhere complaining bitterly about this. Drive shaft shop and others have better no-slop CV solutions Anybody want my sloppy seconds? I went back to U-joints....
  10. They are the poly ones. They worked well, but, did get more engine vibration than I liked. I currently run only one on right side, and a stocker on the left, or is it the other way around.. Whichever one is under compression when the engine torques over. I had two sets though, never used the other set, it's new. I've used the aftermarket stock replacement engine mounts. They are fine, but watch out. The ones I got had SAE welded nuts instead of the stock M8. And the little metal nub that locates in the little hole on the engine mount is in the wrong place or too large or both. Other than that, they are the right size....
  11. I've been on this path for a while as well. Very interested to find out how well that potted in place transmount holds up. I have a set of this McKinney motor mounts if you want them. PM me.
  12. I believe I have a set of 78 pedals as well as earlier ones. Let me see if I can identify the differences.
