  1. Thank you, this is perfect! I use PETG for all my car parts, PLA doesn't last a day in AZ summers.
  2. Just wanted to say that this worked great. It has been leak free for the past 6 months!! Thanks Grannyknot!
  3. Hello! I'm experimenting with 3D printing some interior parts for my 280z. I'm looking for dimensions of the radio face plate to cover up the hold in the middle of my console. I can get them myself but must remove the console to be able to get accurate measurements. If anyone has a face plate lying around, I would really appreciate you measuring it for me. I will upload the files for anyone to use once I finalize it
  4. Doesn't look like I can order it online. There isn't a store near me either. I found some wilwood reservoirs on summit racing that will hopefully fit. Thank you!
  5. Im looking for a replacement for the brake cylinder reservoir for a 77 280z. I pushed a bit too hard on mine and it cracked, I guess thats what happens to 40 year old plastic. I cant find any reservoirs for sale anywhere, just the full master cylinder replacement. Thanks!
  6. I like that idea! Ill pick some up today and see how it goes. Hopefully it wont be as bad when I change the tranny oil, im not sure if the previous owner overfilled it. Thanks for the tip!
  7. Damn.. thats not what I wanted to hear haha. Maybe a project for the future, I can deal with a bit of a leak for now.
  8. Is it normal to have oil at the shifter assembly? I think this is what has been causing my leak. I changed the rear output seal and nothing changed, so this mus be it. Is there any other reason why the oil got here other than an overfilled transmission? This is a 5 speed in a 77 280z btw Thanks!
  9. Yeah I realize how dumb it was to fully install them without testing first. Ill try the 9V battery thing to see if it helps. I also got managed to get them replaced by the seller so hopefully the next set will work properly. I also emptied the fuel tank, since it has been sitting for a couple of months and will change the fuel filter again just to be sure. Thanks for the suggestions!
  10. just pulled the fuel rail and noticed the other injectors are leaking but only one is spraying. I have the harness disconnected and only turned on the fuel pump, if that makes any difference.
  11. I bought a set of remanufactured injectors. I have an electric fuel pump that i have to switch on before i start the engine. I noticed when I pulled the plugs that one of my cylinders is flooded with fuel, I pulled the injector and turned the pump on and it just constantly sprays fuel. Could it be a faulty injector or will the injector start to fire properly once I start the engine? How do I properly troubleshoot this?
  12. I finally got it out with a vise after 2 days of heating and soaking, didnt have to drill or weld anything. Feels great! Thanks guys!
  13. Damn this is going to be much more of a pain than I thought it would be. I got the majority of the rust off using a center punch and scraping the rest with a razor. I kinda damaged the thread on the bolt by trying to turn it with a vise and my stud extractor, so the welded nut might be out of the question, I also dont want to risk welding the block surface since I have no experience welding anything. I might just have to pull the block out if nothing else works. Thanks for the help!
  14. Rusted head bolt snapped. That thing looks welded onto the block, its probably just rust accumulating and hardened. What do? Taking the block out to a machine shop is going to be a last resort. I'm currently soaking it in pb blaster to see if I can loosen it up. Any suggestions on the best way to get this thing out?
  15. Yeah pretty much. I hope it wont be a problem, I guess I'll find out once I get it running again. Thanks!
