    Stolen 240z?

    I'm hoping someone contacted law enforcement, and provided a location and VIN? Easy enough to track down the owner if it was reported stolen. Looks like it hasn't been stripped much, so probably not a total loss.

    '78 280Z Fast Idle Actuator

    Shouldn't be too difficult to add this bracket to the carb linkage arm, and then mount the FIA. ...But where would you pull vacuum?

    '78 280Z Fast Idle Actuator

    Couldn't find a way to attach photos to a PM, so here will have to work. I'll pack up the clean(er) one for you and get that quote tomorrow. ...If anybody needs the second one, let me know.

    '78 280Z Fast Idle Actuator

    I've got 1 or 2 in the spare parts bins. Shoot me a PM with your address and I'll get you shipped price.

    Phar, you've got a PM.

    HID housing recommendation?

    This. Sounds like you've got something specific in mind that you didn't mention in your first post. Kind of hard to help if we don't know what you're after...

    HID housing recommendation?

    Dapper lighting seems to be the gold standard.

    where to get OEM parts

    +1 for Riley on Facebook. Datsun Parts and Needs (DPAN) is a great group for sourcing parts, be it used, NOS, aftermarket, etc...

    Drilled for cooling

    S30kid. He's on HybridZ, but doesn't seem terribly active. He's got a VQ in his Z now, but you might PM here or on Instagram to see if he has any observations to share from his time with the L.

    LD28 parts wanted in NZ

    Majority of members of HybridZ are going to be in the US, but NZ seems to have a good supply of LD motors/parts on TradeMe. I've actually bought parts from NZ that I had no luck finding in the states...

    280Z 1981-1983 EGR TUBE

    Might have one on the spare engine, I'll check it's condition tomorrow.

    WTB CAM core

    I've got a spare L28 that I can crack open for you this weekend. Should be in good shape, was running a few months ago.

    Back in the Datsun business!

    Welcome back! Lots of traffic has moved to Facebook groups, particularly the buying/selling parts aspect. The forum is better off, lots of toolshed content is being caught up there, and once people get here they've already done some reading. Photobucket also broke a lot of build logs... that didn't help.

    Looking For S30 Whale Tail

    Not sure if he still has it, but I forwarded your contact info to a guy who had one for sale locally. Good luck with the search.

    Oil Filter Pressure Relief Valve Plugged?

    Many oil filters have a bypass built in. Not all, so determining whether yours does or not falls to you. The factory L28et oil cooler has a bypass built in. I believe the block bypass is plugged in these applications, but I'm not absolutely sure. Perhaps this is what you have?
  16. Received mine as well. Thanks brother!

    Anything that doesn't fall into another category.

    Weld in Camber Plates Cover

    I would try to adapt 280z seat belt covers along with some butyl tape and vapor barrier sheet (the stuff inside modern car doors)?
  21. I've got a 2011 Subaru STi. It is superior to the Z in almost every measurable way. It can haul a fair amount of junk, two kids fit comfortably in the back it's reliable, out handles the Z, is faster both in acceleration and top speed, it has air conditioning and zero fume issues. Guess which car I'd rather drive? Guess which one the kids always want to be driven around in? It may not be driven around much, but I look at the Z every day and wouldn't want to see the garage without it.

    Texans, help me out.

    All that is currently required for registration is the safety inspection and even that will be getting phased out next year. I've got straight through setup on my Z and a cat delete + cutout on my STi. Ive never had any issues getting them inspected. Z will eventually be getting an L28ET with a cutout shooting through the fender. I doubt I'll have issues even with that.

    Finned Cover for Long-Nose R200

    I might have one for you. I gave it to a friend who was planning an r200 conversion, but he decided to use a Subaru R180. I'll see if he has any plans for it. It has been modified with an outlet for an oil cooler and two bungs for sensors (gauge and pump switch). Not sure if this is overkill for your application.
