    280z 5 speed Speedo gear housing

    I searched and need some help changing my speedometer gear. 280z 5 speed. 300zx turbo clsd 3.7 diff So I bought an 18 tooth “blue” speedo gear to match the ratio of my diff for an accurate speedometer reading. I went to change it out and install new O rings and pulled out a purple 21 tooth gear. The teeth part of the 21 teeth purple gear is larger in diameter than the blue 18 tooth gear I’m trying to swap out. I did some research and my understanding is that the 20-23 teeth speedo gears use a different housing for the correct angle of the larger sized tooth gear offset. Here is the link http://www.classiczcars.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=1652 The 18 tooth gear shaft fits my housing perfectly, the only difference is the number of teeth and the diameter of the teeth. Do I need a different housing for my 18 tooth gear or am I ok? Z is not running so I can’t test it yet. I also read somewhere that the housing can be turned slightly to accommodate the smaller gear teeth size.
  2. I'm going to keep moving forward with my build and swap the bent strut at a later date. You guys Rock, thanks again!
  3. Part #'s for the strut tubes 54303 E4128 54302 E4128
  4. Confirmed s30 strut tubes. I measured the top inside spindle flange to the strut tube and I have a 3/16 difference. The left side is 15/16 and the right is 1 1/8" . I have welded in camber plates. As much as I want to ignore this, I didn't realize that it makes as much of 1" impact at the top. Having one side of my camber plates maxed out kinda eliminates the reason for having them in the first place. Crap!! Last night I ordered 2 angle meters from eBay. I haven't test fitted brakes on again yet but I did a while back and don't recall anything funky. I guess the next step is to start comparing other people's struts and eliminate the bad guy. Thank you everyone for the advice!
  5. Thanks Pete! Ok just swapped hubs with same results. No visible damaged at tube/spindle, I sandblasted and powder coated these myself and did not notice any damage at that time either. The shocks slid into the tubes ok. Used a straight and could not see any visible bend. I'll try to find an angle finder and try that. Am I overreacting or is 1/4" difference a big enough deal to be concerned about? Thanks, Ryan
  6. Hi all. Finally bolting on all drivetrain after a ground up restoration. I have a 1/4" difference between the top of my front brake rotors to the strut housings. Below are some pics to clarify the measurement location. Is this common on 240z? Will this affect my alignment ( I do have camber plates). If it is a bent strut housing how can I tell which one is bent? I did remove my Hubs and re-checked bearings/races. This car has not been driven in 20+ years. 1972 240z with Arizona z car hubs/rotors. Thanks!!
