  1. Aydin, thanks for the comment. Yes I am aware of this and have made these adjustments before. I did end up determining that I didn't have the rack perfectly centered. Once I made the adjustment, I think I am OK now.
  2. I put a new steering rack in my car that has right hand inner tie rods on both sides. I bought 2 MOOG ES2109R right side tie rods and they do fit but on the driver's side it's a bit too long and I don't have much adjustment ability. Also its pointed slightly forward as opposed to the passenger side where it points sightly rearward. What is everyone using for drivers side outer tie rod with right hand thread?
  3. I'll check into other s30s in my area but given the fact that I tried fitting the hub onto 3 different shafts already I'm really thinking that something is wrong with the hub itself.
  4. Cal, what you see in the splines is grease and I used it both for lubrication and also to show how far down the shaft the hub traveled.
  5. Hello, I have a 76 280z. I am putting a momo 3503 hub adapter onto my steering shaft. Every video I've watched of people putting hub adapters on their s30 it seems they slide right on. Mine goes on very snug, but I can get it to go on about 6mm or so before it gets really hard. Maybe I could pound it on, but doesn't seem right and I don't know how I'd ever get it off. I have checked the splines on both the hub and shaft and they look OK. I even bought another hub and tried that with no success. I have 2 other steering shafts laying around and it's always the same thing. Is it possible both the hubs are bad? Bought both from Amazon (not 3rd party either, from Amazon directly). The splines on the Momo look cast (not machined) and perhaps that's the problem? Not sure where to go from here. I like the collapsible design of the Momo but may have to consider another brand. Thanks for any advice.
  6. Thanks man. I had read that Nissan did use sealant from the factory, but it wasn't super clear. Also the sealant never hardens up, it remains soft, or at least it's supposed to.
  7. I'm installing a new gasket and windshield into my 280z. I've read conflicting information on using sealant or installing dry. I'm leaning towards using the sealant to ensure no leaks. This is the sealant I purchased: https://www.crlaurence.com/All-Products/Automotive-Windows-%26-Supplies/Automotive-Glass-Supplies/Glazing-Adhesives/Epoxies%2C-Sealers%2C-Urethanes%2C-%26-Adhesives/CRL-Black-Windshield-and-Body-Sealant/p/CRL7708 What's the best way to install with sealant? If I install into the pinch weld groove on the gasket, I'm afraid it will be extremely messy when the rope is coming out of the groove during install. I also wonder how the lube (soapy water or Windex) will affect it. If I apply it to the pinch weld, I'm worried that it will smear all over the gasket flap when the rope pulls it over the pinch weld. Maybe the best method is to install dry and backfill sealant under the gasket flap where it meets the body? I've gone to great lengths to get the car extremely nice and don't want to have a disaster on my hands during the install. Any thoughts appreciated.
  8. Which snaps did you use for the carpet side ebrake ? And how did they attach? I'm needing to do the same thing soon.
  9. I will definitely check, I had just figured this must have come up before for someone and they figured it out
  10. This is not my car. The extreme widebody isn't my cup of tea but pretty badass build and engineering. https://ls1tech.com/forums/conversions-swaps/1970336-datsun-260z-ss-all-wheel-drive-build.html
  11. I am putting carpet in my 280z. It never had any when I bought it. The brake boot has snaps that apparently attach to the carpet. My carpet doesn't have any and need to add some. I would like to buy some snaps that will work with the brake boot snaps. Preferably ones that rivet in. Has anyone identified any? Thanks
  12. Thanks man. It was actually cheaper to buy a whole new MC, which is ridiculous
  13. Wanted the clevis and pin for 280z clutch. This is the part that threads onto the master cylinder rod and attaches to the clutch pedal. I believe that the brake and clutch clevises are the same, but not 100% . Let me know if you have one
