  1. Yeah this thing wouldn't even try to start when spraying starting fluid into the intake. I have fuel squirting across the yard, i put a gauge on the fuel pressure and it was rather high I think like 90 psi or so. I put a spark tester off one of the coils and got spark while cranking the motor. It was then that i found these horrible compression readings. The motor sounds like there is no spark plugs installed when cranking it. Thanks for the manuals. I had downloaded those already. Was hoping that being a tooth off or 2 might be the cause of the valves opening incorrectly and giving me those readings, but yeah as a interference engine its probably toast.
  2. Even though the line on the timing belt is lined up with the dimple on the cover the dimple on the sprocket with the white paint is not lined up.
  3. Should the hydraulic tensioner be sitting flush with the bracket and have no gap? That's the way I found it. According to the sticker under the hood. This timing belt has been on for 27,000 miles. When I did the compression check, I did it dry as the motor had already been turned over a few times trying to start it from the PO and my self which could have done damage to the rings di cyl walls.. I got those low readings..then i poured some motor oil in and watched the guage slightly go up. One cylinder was at zero and stayed at zero even after oil was poured in. Another cylinder on the other head was at 70psi and went to 150 when oil was added. While the others were 30psi and went to 50psi with oil added. I left the gauge on each cylinder and watched if the pressure leaked down but they stayed about the same reading. I just want to get this thing started so I can drive it out of my backyard on it's own power and put a For Sale sign on it lol. Not looking to rebuild this thing. I have 3 other 240zs I'm building right now.
  4. Hello, so I bought this non running 92 Z32 TT a couple months ago. Its pretty beat up, the PO bought it from some guy who had it sitting in a field for years. Zero history on the car..The PO couldn't figure out the electrical issues to get it to turn over. I fixed the electrical issues and I now can turn the car over with the key, i have fuel and i have spark, but no start. Did a compression test and the numbers were horrible something like 30psi,40,50,0, only tested the front cylinders I had access to at that time. The motor has that sound like there was no compression or like you didn't have spark plugs in the motor. Tonight I pulled the front of the motor down to check the timing belt. It looks like the timing belt hydraulic tensioner gave out and the belt loosened up and slipped a tooth or 2. I have the notches lined up at the crank but the upper sprockets do not line up perfect with their notches they are a tooth or 2 off.. I found The tensioner fully compressed and touching metal to metal with no gap. I have included some pictures of the sprockets not lining up uptop even though the crank is lined up at the bottom..When I turn the motor over manually I dont hear or feel any interference, unless the damage was already done.. (IS THERE A CHANCE THAT THE VALVES ARE NOT BENT AND BY RESETTING THE TIMING BELT CORRECTLY I COULD GET THE CAR TO START AND BE OK? HOW MANY TEETH OFF CAN YOU BE BEFORE YOU DO ENGINE DAMAGE?) Thanks

    Trying to get stock 92 Z32 TT started after 15 years.

    Anyone know anything about this theft system? Could it be why this car wont start? Can't find this decal online to find the manufacturer. Looks like a old sticker. Wonder if there is something planted in this car for security.
  6. Picked up a 92 Z32 TT recently, dont know the history of the car but it's in rough shape. Its hasn't ran in probably 15 years. Found that the hood switch for the anti theft was broken off and causing no power to get to the fuel pump relay. I unplugged the switch and now I have a solid stream of fuel coming out at the motor before the filter.. also I found the fuel filter on backwards lol and the fuel pump relay extremely rusted inside. Got a new fuel filter, new fuel pump relay, and 5 gallons of fresh gas. I also seem to have spark when cranking the motor from a spark tester placed on a random cylinder. I have not yet checked fuel pressure, or timing. But what gets me is that when I spray starting fluid directly into the throttle body and crank the motor I dont even get the slightest backfire or indication that the car is trying to start. Usually on other vehicles you can do this and get a pop or something but I get nothing. Hoping there is not anything major wrong. Anyone ever have spark and fuel but no start? Anti theft? Crank sensor? Cam sensor? timing belt slip teeth? Fuel pressure too low? AFM? I'm a 240z guy, not familiar with this car or motor. Help would be awesome.

    Z32 Parts interchange question

    Z32 Parts interchange question

    So I'm usaully on here for S30 240zs as those are my favs and i have a few, but today I could not turn down the opportunity to pick up a 92 Z32 Twin Turbo. It's in bad shape but for $400 what do you want. I was searching the site and couldn't seem to find what I was looking for. Is there a list of some sort that someone has put together for parts that interchange in the Z32s?. This car will need alot of random parts from body panels and spoilers to ashtrays and mirrors. If I find a Z32 at a junk yard that is a non-turbo which parts are the same as my car? 90-95 .There are so many parts and hard to list them all but was wondering if alot of them interchange and are the same part number. Like I need fenders, a spoiler, front bumper, wheels. This is my first Z32.. Thanks in advance

    Is this the correct door for my Early 71 240Z

    Here we are months later and I'm just now getting around to working this door, it's coming off for bodywork as I will be painting the car this winter. If the door needs shims where do they go? With the hinge bolts all loose at the body I can lift the door up and down, forward and back and I have the fenders off. Looks as if there is still a bit of a gap at the back of the door to quarter when pulling the door as far back as I can. Do you guys ever shim at the hinge to door location?

    Series 1 240z front bumper. Fix it or scap it?

    Yeah I have 73 240 also and the bracket and mounts are different. That bumper only has one small dent in it, I thought about swapping it out and welding in the brackets to the correct place, but that could be a bit of work and I'm not entirely sure if the actual bumper is the exact same size or not. (The bumper laying on the ground is the one in early pictures up above before I cleaned it up, removed the paint, and hammered out the big dents and creases.

    Series 1 240z front bumper. Fix it or scap it?

    I want to put this ride in a car show next summer. Very few shops where I live. There was one shop but when I called him about it he didn't even want to take a look at the bumper. Are 72 bumpers different? Going to keep an eye out. Maybe try some shops out of town.
  12. The front bumper that came on my car was beat up pretty bad I was able to hammer out a lot of the big dents and get it as straight as possible however you can still see Hammer marks on the bumper. this will be going on a restored 240 with a new paint job ..I would like the bumper to be in good shape not sure if there is a way to repair this or send to somebody who can do that or is it better to just scrap it and pay the high dollar price for a new front bumper..

    Series 1 240z paint color options/opinions

    I have had 12 S30 Z car's in the past, but this is my first early car and I plan on keeping her a long time, but you never know when life makes you sell things you don't want too. I think a nice re spray will go along way. Dents and dings all over the car currently being worked out but not much rust issues thank goodness. Should come out great even though it's not a full paint redue. Got the car 3 years ago for next to nothing, so a nice paint job should make a world of difference in the value of what I got into it. But at the end of the day it's not for sale. Going to be my prize ride. It's looking like 904 might be the paint..

    Series 1 240z paint color options/opinions

    Oops Seattle, I may have posted in the wrong spot... Rturbo, the original color was blue. Not a big fan of that color to be honest. The car will have a nice paint job but it will be done with the motor in it. So engine compartment will probably be cleaned and rattle canned gloss black over the old blue. Might look nice with white and black. As the interior is black also..
