  1. Do you happen to have any valve cover vent hoses? I'm not looking for the hose per se, but the flame arrestor (looks like brass wire brush) inside the hose.
  2. Even though the 240Z driveshafts are supposedly different, MSA has only one part number for it the 72 - 78 coupe driveshaft assembly. http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic22e01/22-1002 Perhaps the R180 pinion flange bolt pattern on 70 -71 are different and all the 72 and later pinion flanges have the same bolt pattern/interface.
  3. What about the R200 half-shafts? Do the various stub axles available space out their flanges so the lateral distance to hub is the same as an R200 or does one need to get the longer R180 half-shafts?
  4. CableSrv, Excellent info. Thanks. I'm guessing the driveshaft also had to be one from a '72 or later R180 car - correct?
  5. NewZed, I had checked that fiche a few weeks ago and saw three different part numbers for the input flange, which is why I asked. I wasn't sure if the R180 input flange had the same female spline as the two different R200 input flanges. I understood the inverse reference, but it wasn't necessarily applicable on the input side which may require a little more investigative work or modified driveshaft (as you mentioned). Since it doesn't appear that one needs a 280Z drive shaft to do an R200 swap into a 240, it's starting to sound like the simplest path mechanically is to get an R180
  6. jthom5147, Not being rude - hence the smile emoji. When I first saw your answer all that came up was "You need the Inverse of R200 swap", but I figured it was more than that due to the input side uncertainties as you explained in your edited post. The input side was the thing I was least sure about. Either way, thanks for your input. Pics of the cover would be appreciated when you get a chance. NewZed, jthom5147 edited his post, so you probably didn't see his original answer, so the humor isn't tracking. I found posts and and even one online tutorial web page on a swap into a
  7. We'll that clears things up (not). At least I now know it's not the converse of an R200 swap.
  8. I've searched various forums and have found a few topics regarding putting an STI R180 in a 280Z, but there always seem to be some detail missing. My car is a manual transmission 1976 280Z coupe and thus has the R200 mustache bar and the driveshaft that mates to an R200. I already know that I need new side output flanges which are available from John Williams or Silvermine motors, but I have the following questions: 1) Will the my mustache bar mate up to the STI R180 without modification or do I need to get the mustache bar out of a '77 - '78 automatic car which came with an R180?
  9. I hadn't heard back, so I explored other options. Let me call the ZStore on Monday to see if they are ready to ship. If not, I can cancel my order. PM your PayPal address in case I can ship.
  10. It doesn't paper to be so. The only thing that comes up in web searches is other instances of the ad in other old magazine articles.
  11. I only scanned the Z article, but the whole issue is an interesting read. The various car ads were interesting, touting many things we take for granted in modern cars. You can tell the date was between the two gas crunches as the ads reallly focus on fuel economy.
  12. Just want to make sure - we are talking about the thicker 20 mm bar from a 2+2, right? PM me the e-mail address you use for PayPal. Thanks. - Walt
  13. I'm new to the forum. I purchased a 1-owner 1976 last October. Fellow forum member and best bud "cygnusx1" found the ad for me. In any event, I was diagnosing EFI issues and made a chart to easily track and record ECU harness checks. The chart is for a 1976. The chart indicates the wiring diagram and test description for each test. The original spreadsheet is attached. Please note that there are two work sheets on the bottom tabs. For those without an office suite, I attached both worksheets. - Walt 1976 280Z ECU harness checks.zip 1976 280Z ECU harness checks - worksheet 1.pdf 197

  15. Looking for a 20 mm OEM front sway bar. Let me know what you want with shipping to Bowie, MD (20715).
