  1. not much interest. no matter. I solved the issue, so i`ll write it for future reference. I ended up removing the "washer" that is in the middle of the shaft. Im my car it's help in place by circlips, si I removed all of that , and it was a toothless path, and shorter too. I ended up cleaning the shaft VERY thoroughly (or else the tape peels), putting some packing tape on the end (sharp lip) and on the grooves where the ciclips are inserted, and the seal slip over everything without too much effort (with lots of lube).
  2. hi! I`m rebuilding my rack and pinion (a seal burst). took it all apart, changed all the seals, and now started putting it back together. one of the first step is to insert the rack in the tube, teethed side in.. to do that, they recommend putting a plastic film around the shaft where there are teeth, so the teeth don't chew up the new seal. here is a photo from the manual. I tried using electrical tape, and then 2 layers of packing tape, all super lubed up, but it was very hard to even get the seal started on the shaft, and as soon as I started sliding it
  3. they are still on their website... man, I'd seen some that were expensive, but that's CRAZY!! 250$ per side.. Then again, to someone who's not a cheapskate like me who's properly restoring their car, it`s just part of the game. I guess the lack of demand makes it expensive to make, no economy of scale...
  4. hi! I printed it out of PLA, with 5 walls and 30% infill. the 5 walls were probably overkill. there wasn`t much pressure even pushing the center in, and the mold is SOLID. Here is an image of the cross section of the mold.. there is also a center plug and a tiny plug that sticks in the side, to create hole in the part that sticks out. here is all the parts, including the bolt that I used to squish the center in... essentially, since I wasn't pouring in material, I was injecting very slowly and painfully from a caulking gun,
  5. *admins, please put this where you think it goes. this was the best section I found for it.... Hi guys. So. last year, I changed my front suspension. and as I foolishly turned the wheel hub by hand (with a lot of strenght to overcome resistance), making the rack and pinion move as I did that and and one of the rack and pinion seals blew. Fast forward to this year (cause I'm lazy and didn't do it during the winter), I took the rack out and am rebuilding it. As I did that, I realized my passenger side rack bushing, which has been copiously bathed in engine oil
  6. Hi Derek. It`s been a while (time wise) that we've seen some form of an update in production. I'd be curious to see a breakdown of all the heads you`ve made and what happened to them. for example headd 001- - prototype, scrapped headd 002, prototype, in my car head 003, vvt prototype, scrapped. head 004 - client was dynoed on a 3.2 to xxx hp.. head...... *****note that all these are made up!!!! something like that. maybe including the future plans, like how many heads have been ordered and are "in production".
  7. hey! I miss your updates... can't wait to see what is next on the cars.. did you end up posting some new work here on hybridZ for your other cars? s
  8. hey! so.. what's the news. I know it's been a while, but did you manage to get the engine rebuilt? how is she doing now?
  9. are you looking for something new or used? same level of power or more? got a budget in mind? I have an aftermarket T3/T04E on mine, didn`t pick it it came modified. wikipedia says (it`s true if I can remember) that "The turbocharged 280ZX used a single Garrett AiResearch TB03 turbocharger with an internal wastegate"... this post has a few options..
  10. Hey jdm junkie. I'm franciphone (from quebec). If you want, give me the person's email, i'll write to them and figure out the history. Send me a private message and we'll figure out the details. Sebastien
  11. @B50MX hey! thanks for sharing! seems like a mighty nice build, fun to drive too! simple, but to the point, and it works, which is more than my car can say. seems like you have a nice, evenly balanced setup.. 👍
  12. smoothz nice! I`ve really not ridden mine since I changed my shocks and I had problems with the steering, which i`m still working on (not often),. but whatever runs around the block I did, I also say a night and day change...
  13. hi tokuzumi. I live in quebec, canada, where we normally have a lot of rust., although it seems my car never saw much moisture.. I had no issues what so ever, so I wouldn`t worry too to much. The good thing about this set up is you can remove the shock and top plate by removing the 3 nuts that are on the shock tower.. this way, you have better access to the central nut, if I remember. Worst come to worse, if you're changing the shocks themselves (after 41 years, i`m guessing yes) and the top nut won't budge, you can always put a pair of vice grips on the shaft and use an i
