  1. Here's a little better markup. I am asking for the length of the yellow lines I've drawn in.
  2. Thanks 72240Z. Yes, jhm, you got it, looking for the length of the yellow line. To everyone else, i just scribbled this quickly on my phone while in a doctors waiting room. And yes, I'm working on an LED insert.
  3. Does anyone have a 240z taillight handy to grab me some measurements? I would really appreciate someone getting out their tape measure for a minute. My car and parts aren't nearby or available on short notice right now. I need general width and height of both color sections (not reverse light). Ideally, just inside the upper inside end around the curve and vertical to the middle horizontal, as crudely scribbled in my attached drawing (in yellow). I'm sure you can see where this is going... Thanks for the help guys!
  4. Rick, thanks for the info. I have 17x9.5 and 12.5, already have 315's and planning on 275 fronts. With my mustang offset front brakes and wheels it should end up close to yours ... Just thinking out loud, keep up the good work!
  5. Rick, I've just found your work on your Z body. I had a question -What size wheels/tires are you working with? I really like what you're doing.
  6. nrS30, Did you also end up with the mould for the headlight cover?
  7. Vote for HybridZ most useful humanitarian post of the year!
  8. Good work, a lot of excellent info here . I'm excited to see where you take this. The Merc V12 is a little used motor (in any car) you seem to be working out a lot of the kinks.
  9. tide75,any thoughts on weight differences after handling the removal and air strut install?
  10. While we have this ancient thread bumped... The head cross sections are awesome to study and compare. I missed this one way back in '03. I would like to mention something to correct a misconception for anyone else reading this thread in the future. Maybe I'm being pedantic, but the O.P. completely neglected including (subtracting) the diameter of the valve stem from the valve seat throat. The effective diameter ends up being around 1.391" versus the 1.525" mentioned, assuming a 5/16" stem. So, it's not a huge mismatch between intake port and seat at all. Sixteen thousandths, not
  11. If you look a little further down the page, there are actual pics of the real car, it looks like flat black or grey. Not sure if this car is the blue Z revamped, or if that was just to show an example of a powerful Toyota L6 swap?
  12. They're downdraft, aren't they?
  13. Any chance you could scan or take a better pic so that everything in the ad is legible? I put one of those on my green 73 that I got BNIB with a parts car.
  14. Looking on Fontana's website from one of the previous links, it appears to me that they are cnc'ing their own aluminum bock and copies of LS heads. Their listed data does no mentio bore spacing, but the deck height is in the ballpark to be a 4 cylinder LS3. I'm not in a position to do this now, but has anyone contacted them about the crank for their "new" midget engine? I have dreams of a dry sump ITB titanium rod flat crank LS7 dancing in my head.
  15. I really like your setup alot. I do wonder if you will have an issue in sunlight though.
  16. Cool, Where did you get the board from and how much? I've been thinking about an Atom N450 hidden desktop myself.
  17. John, It is not quite as simple as a merge collector. I think you're missing the "cool outside air" entering point in his drawing. I believe what Prox is describing is also known as an eductor nozzle/pump. It's used in shipboard dewatering among other things. The usage in that case is to pump a volume of water through that nozzle, drawing a suction on that secondary ring, which pumps/pulls fluid along with the original fluid pumped in. The same concept as used on newer diesel exhausts is a method of pulling in a high volume of cool ambient air to cool the tip and exhaust gas leavi
  18. I really like your linkage and "L-crank" setup, wish something that nice existed for sidedrafts (without spending TWM level of money, that is).
  19. Count me interested too. I've never liked the quality of the repros, or NOS weatherstripping I have.
  20. For me it's Lagavulin. Smokey, peaty, just right. My old roommate recently gave his sister $500 to buy the best scotch she could get her hands on (she's lived in Scotland for 3 or 4 years now). I think I may need to visit him...
  21. You deserve something for that post! To the point and simple. It was pretty much what I initially suspected, but this thread and the endless dialogue made me start believing there was going to be more involved in the swap.
  22. Autozone has code readers that will work. Don't get hung up on the OBD1 crap, you just need a run of the mill EFI code reader or flasher with a Ford adaptor. Or, you could just get the CEL codes and start counting flashes. I forget what the trick is to trigger them, it's been a while since I bought my reader.
  23. I have a similar problem. My stroker came with a Malvern Racing cam, but the PO had no paperwork with specs. He said he asked Malvern for, " A decent street cam for a stroker with triples". Not exactly specific. It does not seem too rowdy, but just wondering if I should re-use it come rebuild time as I have the big Schneider cam sitting around. With the death of the owner, Malvern disappeared. For a short bit I was able to find cached versions of the webpages, but nothing of use and they are gone now. Does anyone have a price list, parts list, copy of their website, old cam card... anyth
