  1. Any way to get the site to show Topics only with new posts contained under the Topic title. Looking at a half a page of the same Topic because it has the most new posts doesn't work well. The other guys do it that way and it works. Hybridz "Activity" choices are pretty slim.
  2. Kind of looks like a VG30 pattern except for a missing hole or two. This is from the 1995 Pathfinder 71C transmission. They look about right along the top. Clutch and fly wheels interchange to a certain extent from VG to the L series engines.
  3. I built a similar mount in preparation for using a 71C swap in a 280Z. Nissan refers to the transmission mount as the rear engine mount. It's not working alone, it's working in conjunction with the two front mounts, so doesn't really see the motions and loads that you think it might. Forward and backward as you brake and accelerate, and up and down over bumps. But no significant twisting. I cut a slot in a spare mount crossmember and shimmed out the space to move it back and use the original mounting ears. I felt comfortable with it based on the loads it would see in use.
  4. The injectors won't open unless the ignition coil pulse on Pin 1 is there at the ECU. Don't assume that the injectors are bad or some other assumption. Might just be the EFI fusible link. You can't do much on these EFI systems without a meter, except guess. The ECU's do fail, but that's an expensive guess. classiczcars.com has free downloadable service manuals with all of the diagnostic procedures.
  5. I was using the millenial label as a descriptor of behavior. Not the age range. Bnapi fits the description. I don't really know how old he is. He could be 40 years old and has just left home. We've kind of gone full circle though, because Bnapi labeled all of the Hybridz members, based on his interpretation of one single post.
  6. Here is the key moment when Bnapi made the choice between dbag and helpful, knowledgeable, cool new member. He made the self-absorbed choice. I'm going to guess that he's a young guy, newly fledged from his overprotective parents. Just learning how to take care of himself. Used to having his needs pandered to immediately. I think that they call them millennials, in the media. Kind of sad actually that the other forums have delayed his growth in to manhood. Good luck Bnapi. Man up.
  7. I would put the head back on if you have the timing chain tensioner properly locked in to place, and just put some force on it in the normal rotation direction. I had assumed that you would put the head back on before trying to rotate it. You can't turn the crankshaft with the head off because the chain has to move. If you don't have the tensioner locked you won't be able to get the sprocket back on anyway so you'll have to remove the front cover.
  8. Sometimes when you get focused on a problem you spend more time making it happen than figuring out how to make it not happen. I can make my drivetrain clunk if I want to, but I tend to drive it in a way that it doesn't clunk. The Z drivetrains are kind of sloppy. Six u-joints, a loose tolerance differential and old worn out transmissions. Once you've minimized all of the slop all that's left is to smooth out your driving skills.
  9. The pictures show a pretty normal old "survivor" car. Dents from speed bumps, light rust. No red flags at all. It even still has the damper weight on the diff mount crossmember so nobody's been modifying it. But for $10,000 you could probably find a nicer 1977 280Z. I don't see anywhere near $10,000 of rust repairs on that car though. Value depends on plans.
  10. Don't overlook the other mounts. I've had a couple of broken motor mounts in other, bigger, cars and that's what you get, one thunk as the motor sets back down. Feels like you ran over something. The transmission mount is designed just like the diff mount, and the mounting member itself has rubber on the ends. All could cause problems.
  11. Zhoob's link will have the wire colors. If you want to be sure. I think that the inhibitor switch is at the shift lever or on the transmission. A neutral switch. The diagram might show location, or the transmission chapter might show the switch.
  12. Do a Google search and it looks like the finned one. The flat one has a different part number also. https://zclub.net/community/index.php?threads/finned-r200-diff-cover.12685/ Turbo Z's - https://www.nissanpartsdeal.com/parts/nissan-cover-rear-fina~38351-n3110.html Flat one - http://www.carpartsmanual.com/datsun/Z-1969-1978/power-train/differential-gear/r200
  13. I would put it all back together and drive it.
  14. Is it an automatic? The circled "A" is the circuit for that. There's an inhibitor relay.
