  1. Bump. Cannon intake manifold is sold. A few other things I'll let go FOR FREE if anyone is in NJ and wants to pick them up: entire '72 OEM suspension including front and rear strut assemblies, front and rear lower control arms, front engine crossmember and original sway bar.
  2. Bump. The cannon intake manifold is spoken for. Also available are front and rear strut assemblies and lower control arms as well as a front engine cross-member.Obviously a pain to ship so I'll take just about any offer for a local pickup.
  3. I have several things for sale I have removed from my Z over the years. Everything is located in New Jersey and mostly negotiable (I'm not up to date on most of these prices so here's what would make me happy). Weber 32/36 DGV carburetors with E88 manifolds, balance tube and linkage that should be complete. These could probably stand to be rebuilt but did run when I took them off ~2 months ago to install triples. $250 Unused Cannon triple Weber DCOE manifold with linkage and carburetor mounting/insulation kits: $250 sale pending Ol
  4. No kidding. If its still in NJ I hope to see it around.
  5. If you decide to do adjustable suspension at any point I can vouch Techno Toy Tuning as rossman has said. Silver Mine Motors has a ton of brake options at a few different levels and price points like jhm said. Only thing I could think to add that hasn't been mentioned is Apex Engineered. They're still new but fantastic quality from my experience and if you ever want to do an engine swap their cross-member has swap-able engine mount points.
  6. WTB a triple carb setup. Preferably something complete but willing to entertain partial sets of just carbs or just a manifold to put together something unique. I had ordered new OER carbs a week ago but RHD Japan decided to tell me after I placed my order and they approved it that the price had gone up a few hundred dollars so I'm searching for alternatives. Thank you.
  7. It definitely wasn't easy to get a decent reading. With the engine fully dressed and in the bay I didn't have anywhere good to attach a dial indicator or have a magnetic base handy so we ended up making this jerry-rigged contraption to hold the indicator in a good position. It uses two bolts from the cam cover to hold itself down and worked well for something thrown together. Figured someone might get a good chuckle out of it here...
  8. Tell that to the 123ignition distributor sitting next to me and the fuel fittings going out today! There's suddenly a lot going on at once for my Z. I was trying to measure directly from the cam which is probably why I was getting such strange numbers then. I imagine a proper valve adjustment would be key in measuring real lift since lash has an affect on that measurement as you mentioned. Also, and you'll have to excuse the ignorance of youth and lesser experience, but because I was originally only trying to find the lift and duration from on the cam I figure
  9. We'll have to hope so! I just bit the bullet on a set at 34mm. Hopefully the worst case scenario now would be having to change them out for the next size up or down.
  10. Thank you jonbill. That makes good sense to me. In my use I wonder if I should go with a slightly smaller venturi. Using Frank Honsowetz's method and considering I don't really go over 6k on the street I came up with a 34mm venturi size: sqrt(458.79 * 6,000 / 1,000) * 0.65 = 34.103 Even though this would probably limit the 6-7k range, my cam definitely doesn't have any hidden power up there and if the slightly smaller size makes for easier tuning and or more driveability then that tradeoff could work. However if that 2mm reduction in size would affect things
  11. I am in the process of picking out new carbs for my 240Z with a 'Stage I' Datsun Spirit motor. It's an L24 based 2.7L stroker that has been (in my opinion) burdened with the Weber DGV setup that came with my Z. At the time of setting up this motor I found myself unable to replace the carbs the car came with but I'm now in the position to do it right. After some back and forth I thought I would go with some Z-Therapy SU carbs since they should be plenty for the engine and I've heard nothing but great things about them. The problem is I don't really have 4-5 months to wait for a set.
  12. I'm not sure what it's worth but I'm interested. From what little I found on them at jdmjunkies it looks like they're from I would also like to find a finned Kakimoto or Kameari type valve cover eventually and this would go great with that and the OER's I'm about to order. Shoot me a PM if you want to just sell it and we'll see if we're close on value. As far as coilovers I'm not sure what you're looking for but if you need some original cores I have a complete original suspension with struts and control arms that I would be happy to trade for.
  13. Techno Toy Tuning stopped taking orders for them because of lead times according to a phone-call I had with them a few months ago. So unless they've picked up the brand again, I think Circuit Dreamer is your best bet currently. They even carry some in stock (sometimes).
