  1. Via FSM determined steering lock switch shorted to ground causing blown 10a Hazard Fuse. Disconnected steering lock switch -ops check good. Well, sorta. Voltage was reading way too high showing close to 16v and I know my stock one struggles to put out even 15v. Removed gauge and found an adjustment set screw. Determined the top left pin (with the index pin pointing down) was positive (it has red tape around it the wire) and the top right was negative. Hooked it up to the battery with the engine running. I used some molex pins I had on hand to make the test leads. Used my multimeter as a refere
  2. Digging this back up. I have the same wheels. I have two center caps if ya want them, but they are not show quality... By chance you know what length/diameter lugnuts these take?
  3. Thanks to both. I’m sure plenty of other stuff breaks in the climate control system. That’s why Step 1 is “Verify Fault.” If anyone else has other faults to add on please do so. It is SO nice when you google a problem and TaDa! a legit answer pops up!
  4. This has probably already been figured out, but here is a fix if someone searches this forum. 1977 280Z. Problem: Air will not come out of dash vents at any climate control lever position. Cause: Mode door actuator not retracting to close heater plenum due to broken plastic boss at retract spring mount bracket on Heater plenum. Part location: Just above left hand side defrost outlet. Applicable 1977 FSM pages: AC-31 Figure AC-41. NOTE: The offending broken piece is NOT in front of the heater core or evaporator core. This repair is safe. However some common maintenance practic
  5. These boots are nicer than the ones I installed. My old pins didn’t fit either, but the kit came with new pins and crimping was pretty straight forward. Post up your supplier on these!
  6. Any more traction Fairlady? It will be a pain, but if you are able to remove the rail without molesting the radiator support, you should be able to massage the support to fit. It will take rebending the flanges to the correct height, but everything else would get to remain the same.
  7. I used my detail gun. I shoulda used my hvlp. I thought I would save it for the clear and just throw the detail gun away. Oh well. It's kind of a Ratsun thing for now anyway. Clear coat tomorrow.
  8. Masked it off for the orange. The blue does look surprisingly good with the yellow! Hope the weather holds so I can spray it tomorrow.
  9. I gotta work on the scale a little but I like it with this ugly paint.
  10. Just rubbing her out to keep motivation to the max. Not much I can do on drill weekend. Think I'm gonna try and paint a Japanese war flag on the hood this coming weekend. Lol
  11. Ok. New chassis. 77 with an Oct 76 build date. She's kind of a cocktail waitress wearing a Dolly Parton wig with the Godawful yellow makeup, but she has good bones.
  12. How do you follow your post? Just signed up over there.
  13. Forgive me for blogging. Probably an uninteresting post. Feel free to skip. : ) Broke out my engine stand. Haven't used it since I transferred from Sacramento. Found my buddy Eddie's SBC hardware in my trusty Crown Royal bag. Memories! Tried to out the broken engine stud. Drill won't reach. Gonna hafta pull the manifolds to drill it out properly. So no joy tonight in getting it on the stand. Discovered the harmonic balancer bolt and the front pan bolts are missing. Damn. This does not bode well. Hopefully it is as clean inside as the borescope shows...
