  1. I do, I bet it is still tossed in closet with lots of other parts. BTW Tony, I thought it was funny
  2. I still stop in on the Z forum from time to time, Been busy with Family and other projects, so the Z is getting not much love. I finally got the engine back from the machine shop. All the money I saved to complete it was sitting around so long that i decided to be a good dad and take my family on a surprise vacation to Hawaii. It was a wise choice, as my daughter is getting older and wont want to spend as much time with me once she is a teen, however the Z will still be there waiting to be finished. I got rear ended in my truck a few weeks back, so been driving my other Z every day wh
  3. I think 1 fast Z did some work on this idea. Anyways I am not a crankshaft guy to know what is considered "In" balance, but the "out of" balance they found in the article seems to be alot even though it is a cam and not a crank. In this example the camshaft is running at 4,000 rpm (half of the 8,000 rpm crankshaft speed). The left side of the camshaft is generating a force of 34.3 pounds and the right side is 47.6 pounds, and both are ­hammering at 66+ times per second. This may be enough to cause the camshaft to ­become excited and set up a vibration pattern that will motivate t
  4. Camshaft balancing? Anybody have any comments? Just thinking about it and found this article http://www.precisionenginetech.com/tech-explained/2009/06/01/camshaft-%C2%ADbalancing-part-1/ monZter
  5. just because it says N-42 doesnt mean it is stock. A lot can be done with a welder and a die grinder. Only the builders of these beautiful engines will know the real secrets, we can only try until we master it ourselves
  6. Definitely one of the best S30s I've seen/heard ever. I gotta ask the million-dollar question. What exhaust are you running? I can't find a description on it anywhere, but it makes the best exhaust note I've ever heard come from an L series engine. Keep up the great work.

  7. I've spent this morning going through your gallery pics.. You are soo good that I feel like quitting my project!! :) You are like me only 10 times better. Absolutely beautiful work! Can I buy your car when it´s finished? :)

  8. I have been running an aluminum radiator on my Z for years with no rubber isolators, and no problems.
  9. FYI 6/10/10 Koyo is proud to introduce an all aluminum performance radiator for the 1970-1978 Datsun 240Z, 260Z, and 280Z with manual transmissions. Koyo engineers have designed some unique features into this brand new model. Unlike the traditional downflow style of the OEM Datsun radiator, the Koyo performance radiator is manufactured with a robust 53mm crossflow core design. Another unique feature is the integrated 1/8†NPT female accessory fitting located near the top inlet tube. This fitting (supplied with a threaded plug) will accept a 1/8†NPT temperature sensor supplied wi
  10. What you guys are seeing in the header is the merge collector. This is a cone produced from the intersecting of the primaries. Check out these links http://www.spdexhaust.com/ http://www.burnsstainless.com I have gotten to know Jack Burns from Burns stainless pretty well. He has in great depth explained some of his theory of header design and merge collectors. He says 6 into 1 is never a good solution unless it’s very high in the RPM range that you want your torque curve. The large volume of the 6 into 1 slows the gasses down too much at lower speeds and the torque curve is no
  11. Nice reading and well done. My quick comment is summed up by the quantity of material you have found. Simply, there is no 1 magic bullet that gives them the power. It is the well planned out, focused details in all of the parts. The sum of the whole is made from the parts. Everything is designed to work together, and when it is done correctly, the hp numbers don't lie. I'm sure I have some stuff to add, but its late. Jeff
  12. Yep, Hoov is correct, The custom backing plate ties it all together
  13. You asked for pictures, maybe too many? click on any picture to go to my gallery with more details
  14. Here is an IGES for you. Its what I designed and used for my header. I have a round port also if you need it. header_flange.zip
