  1. the clutch and brake pedals are from the original 240Z. I think I will bend the clutch pedal to move a little closer to the brake pedal to leave room to use the dead pedal. Pete
  2. Finished running the AC lines. I ran the two lines to the evaporator through the passenger inner fender. I removed the lower passenger vent. I evacuated the system all went great. Next I will charged the system when the weather warms. I also replaced the gutted power steering pump and replace with a cleaner bracket and pulley from ICTbillet.com
  3. The other problem I had was the fuel gauge is reading empty, there should be around a 1/4 tank of fuel. I installed a fuel gauge from a 280Z, I am reading 39 ohms at the sender. Not sure what is wrong, I grounded the signal wire and the gauge reads full. I will be trouble shooting this week.
  4. Here are some interior pictures. Just waiting for my new steering wheel from thezstore.com to complete interior.
  5. This weekend was the 1st real test for the LS2. I ran the engine for around 1 hour. The exhaust sounds great. The only problem I had was a small fuel leak at the carter low pressure fuel pump that feeds the Edlebrock sump located at the battery tray. The other problem was the LS2 thermostat was not opening until 215 degrees. The second fan was coming on at 217 degrees the engine would idle at a constant 217 degrees. I pulled the thermostat and put in boiling water and it opened at 215 degrees. The thermostat says 86 C looks like it is no good. I ordered a new delco 187 degree thermostat. My primary fan was coming on at 210 degrees, I will modify the ECU to come on at 200 degrees. Below is some pictures, the paint is about 60% complete. The color is the original metallic silver from 1971. The vintage air HVAC heater worked great.
  6. AC compressor installed. I bought the kit from DIrtydingo Motorsports. The kit mounts the AC compressor low on the passenger side of LS engines. The kit uses a Sanden SD7B10 compressor. I had to modify the lower bracket to get the tensioner to clear the steering rack. The compressor clears the 240Z frame rail, no modification needed. Next is installing the condenser and dryer, then running the AC lines through the passenger front fender vent channel.
  7. The frame rails are from baddogparts.com The exhaust pipe is 2.5" and 3" pipe I purchased from summit racing and cut to fit. The black coating is VHT flame proof. AC going in this week end.
  8. Re upholstered the driver seat. Next I will install vintage air condenser and AC compressor
  9. Custom home made exhaust completed. see attached pictures.
  10. Received my custom speedometer gauge from speedhut. I ordered a 4 1/2" GPS speedometer. They modified the wiring so the 2 red lights activate with a ground that is connected to the emergency brake. The blue light above the 240Z activates by a ground when the high beams are on. I also ordered with the remote jack button so I could install just like the factory. Fits perfect in the original speedometer case. GR4.5-GPS-03T 4-1/2" GPS Speedometer 160mph (w/ turn signal and high beam) Colors: Day - Black dial // White font Night - Numbers Green Glow Font Style: Eurostile Tick Style: standard Custom Text: 240Z Pointer: Standard White (Glows White) Bezel: Stealth Black Window: Flat Notes: 1. Remove front mounted jack button, install remote jack button. 2. Make 2 blinker bulbs red. High beam bulb blue. 3. Make 2 blinker bulbs and high beam bulb activate by supplying a ground not 12 volts. My car sends a ground to turn on lights. 4. Make GPS cable 5 feet long.
  11. New drive shaft arrived from Hoke performance.
  12. New front speaker.. Installed 2 speakers in the rear. Waiting on interior carpet.
  13. I have been working on the wiring behind the dash, removing unused wires and adding relays. Finally completed the restoration of the dash. My dash had many wide crakes. The results are great looks just like new. Will have to see how it holds up in the weather. If it does not hold up I have a full cover that I have fitted on the dash and it fits great. Waiting on my custom made 4 1/2" GPS speedometer. The gauge will have a high beam light, and I will use the blinker lights as the emergency brake light (they will make the gauge with red lights). It will have a remote jack button since I will install in the factory gauge bracket. They also made the brake light and high beam light work on a ground signal instead of a 12 volt signal. They also shorten the GPS wire from 15' to 5'. Great customer service. I also wired the ECU engine light to the volt meter 12 volt red light.
