  1. Hello Newbie, Looks like you have found a decent looking car. Should you need help with most anything related to your new z, there is tons of good information here at HybZ and over on ClassicZcar. Searching past post will reveal discussions on most topics and well thought out questions usually are answered by those who have traveled the road before. Welcome.
  2. The comments above all seam valid. I'm assuming you have rotated the distributor in both directions while having the same result. There are several different distributor bases or "fixing plates" as the FSM calls them. Each was designed to go with different distributors. Using the wrong one will greatly effect timing adjustment. Just my two cents worth based on a similar problem I had with my 280zx. Somewhere, perhaps here on hybridz or at classiczcar there is a post with a link that has photos of each base and describes to which distributor it matches up with. I haven't
  3. I had to spend a bunch of time adjusting the hood parts, fenders and doors and hatch after my last painted z car was done. But it did all come together. I suspect your first statement about the front end damage is where you need to start to solve your problem. Take some measurments especially side to side from one fender to the other. Do you have another car to compare your findings against? You may need to do some dissassembling before you can move some things back to where to belong. Take your time. Even very small out of whack measurments can cause big alingment problems.

  5. Sure can! In the least year I have replaced u-joints in my 73 240 and my 78 280Z. Easy Peezy!
  6. Just a thought.....J B Weld??? I've used it for many things and the stuff really works. Part needs to be super clean before application. When it's completely set after a few days it becomes very hard. Then sand lightly until it's smooth.
  7. Are you asking about hardware for intake and exhaust manifolds? I have used zcardopot stud kit several times. The parts are nice quality stainless. https://zcardepot.com/collections/stainless-steel/products/intake-and-exhaust-manifold-stainless-steel-stud-kit?_pos=1&_sid=374b9089d&_ss=r
  8. I normally don't reply to "what if" post but this is an interesting one. I have owned a number of Zcars for decades and have meet many other owners who want/need a new harness. I too have reworked sections and wished I had new parts to deal with. It's a tedious task an not so fun. The solution is usually attempting to repair what they have or buying a used one that is probably no better than what they started with. Certainly the demand exist but will owners pay the price? I can't answer that one!
  9. I'm not sure what your question ("situation") is. I have used the POR 15 fuel tank cleaning system 2 times and it worked great. If you followed the instructions and made sure the pick up plumbing was free and open, all should be well. What exactly are you having a problem with?

    Hybrid Z Wind Tunnel Test

    I was part of this test. We spent a lot of time prepairing and deciding what and how to test. Our time in the tunnel was expensive and limited. I believe we gathered good and usefull information. Looking back, this was a really fun and eye opening experience for me.
  11. How bout a wild guess? Years ago my Jeep Cherokee had a noise not unlike the one you describe. Turned out to be leaves in my hvac duct under the dash.
  12. I use the Valvoline generic.
  13. I have 944 style cv axles and a Quaife differential in my s30 road race car. It has big HP and TQ numbers. I used Valvoline Hi-Temp grease in them with no problems. I suspect most good grease brands, including the new synthetic greases will also do the job.
  14. I've been waiting for an ignition part from the manufacturer here in the States (Fuel, Air, Spark) for several weeks and I'm told it could be a few more weeks wait. My research shows there are no other retailers who have what I need in stock. The part is listed on Whitehead's site but with no one answering thier phone and after reading all the above negative comments about them, I've decided not to risk deal with them. Perhaps all the comments should sound the "buyer beware alarm" to this community until Whitehead can prove to be a worthy supplier again. I'm not part of the cancel culture
  15. QUOTE "borrow or buy an impact wrench. Electric if you don’t have an air compressor. That’s your best bet." I've read several post about using an impact to remove the fill plug in an s30 diffenential. That would be a real trick. Due to the angle needed and obstructions around it, there is no way an impact wrench will work!
