  1. Looks like it. OEM switch drives relay switching circuit. Relay supplies high current to lights. You just have to make sure that it will work with what's available on your OEM harness/multi-function switch. On the '71 240Z the power is source from the fuse panel and the multi-function switch provides the ground for either the high or low beam. If that's the case with the 75 280Z, then the relay circuit that you're connecting to the multi-function switch needs to be ground activated.
  2. Harness upgrade with relays. https://www.datsun-240z-upgrades.net/product-info/
  3. Just remember to add relays into your circuit so you don't end up sinking all the current through your switches.
  4. 3 months for a home build going from shell to dyno. That's impressive.
  5. What are you using to get the glue residue up?
  6. This one seems over the top expensive but I thought I would ask if anybody used it. It looks like the 280 one with the bolts moved inward with a spacer to correct the placement. https://jdm-car-parts.com/products/datsun-240z-1969-1972-8-5-inch-brake-booster-upgrade-kit
  7. The Apex design nearly boxes in the rear diff. The two members that projects forward and is connected to the front diff mounting point is part of the rear cross member (Apex's mustache bar). Those same members continue forward past where the front of the diff is mounted and connects to where the OEM LCA mounting point. If you connected the caps on the front mounting point it would essentially add a box structure to the rear of the car. The design also looks like it would eliminate any flex due to the drop mounts for the LCA.
  8. First block of quotes references my questions with regards to Rear Suspension Conversion. The second block of quotes are answers for the Rear Track Attack. There are no push rods in the Rear Suspension Conversion. You would probably get a better response from him if you contact Apex directly through e-mail. He's very responsive. Kudos on him for that.
  9. Not really sure why you would want to do that swap outside of just want which is valid. Probably not much info on such an obscure swap anywhere. Most guys looking for big power just upgrade the EJ. There's a few out there that go H6.
  10. Again these are questions that currently have no answer. For the Time Attack Kit (not the one the OP is interested in) that information is not available. That kit also has "Wider track width" under Key features. The belief is that since the strut is now replaced with a push rod that is thinner than the OEM strut there will be room for a wider wheel. Until actual numbers are available there's no way to know how this setup will work with what you're planning. Since the track is wider you will likely need need more positive offset to get wider to work without chopping the fenders? How much offset? Will it go wide enough for the size tires you want? Do they make the wheels you want with that offset? Answers to know before pushing that add to cart button. Especially since this kit is 5 grand.
  11. If you're going to pay somebody to repair it, you should consider having one made that has U-joints that you can replace. I can't imagine that it would be that much more than having it repaired. Places like Hoke Performance are offering custom CD009 to LN diff for $400. A shop is probably going to charge you 4 hours + parts.
  12. The OP is looking at the "Rear Suspension Conversion". The HellZ uses the "Track Attack - Complete Rear Suspension".
  13. I give them credit for posting pretty good instructions with their earlier products. It has torque specs and all. The new ones which look more complex are missing them. Arguably you could say that one can mosh together previous product instructions with various OEM torque specs and get there. A complete set of instructions for something in the $2K neighborhood would be nice. I know that documentation is expensive and lots small shops just don’t do it. It saves money in the end though. Saves bandwidth on the phone calls and e-mails. Just a gripe of mine. Enough bitching and on with the Qs. This is more of an observation. Product says “Bolt-In”. Not going to be very bolt in of it comes with axle shaft. That means disassembly of the axle of your choice and replacing the axle shaft. I know that anybody taking on this level of work should know what has to be done. One would think but spelling it out couldn’t hurt. Probably providing some instructions for that particular aspect of the destruction/construction would help sell these kits. Under “Key Feature” there is a list of what would appear to be improvements since it has “!” and all. You probably should understand what that entails. Improve roll center! Is that with all 3 settings for LCA (see inboard mounting point)? I imagine the lower hole would potentially raise the roll center. Then maybe not since the pivot point is further out from the OEM. Widen track! This one is probably more critical to understand if you don’t want to add flares. Can it be set to OEM width? I’m going to guess no and will require chopping of the fenders. What wheel offset can you run before the inner rim encroaches on the coilover? You might want to know if you’re chopping fenders and plan on ridiculous wide meats. Speaking of coils, what coils? Any 300ZxTT or 370Z will work? How do they mount? Alter Camber! Alter Caster! Alter Toe! What does that even mean? Adjustable? How and how much? Lots of knobs there. Might want to know what the knobs can do. Sway bar mounting point? Can you get the specs for the axle shaft? They might not be around forever and this is a custom part that’s subject to breakage. I suppose you can just break out the mic and take some measurements before the install.
  14. Looks like a nice kit. Lots of questions need answering before the add to cart button is pushed.
