  1. Re: "Cooling fluid". I was working from old information when installing my Koni's. You bring up a good point, always refer to Manufactures recommendations. Struts spec'ed. Let me clarify, my intent was just to point out that 280Z struts and 240Z struts have a different diameter size, et alone the difference in lenght. OEM Shocks may have different diameter size than what you might get from a third party manufacture. So, when sectioning your struts, note a shock for a 280Z might not work for a 240Z strut due to the different in the diameter size.
  2. 280Z struts are longer and wider than the 240Z struts. Which means you can use a 240Z (30 mm) shock in a 280Z strut (if you have shortened the struts) but you can not use a 280Z (36 mm) shock in a 240Z strut (diameter is too small and no room for outside cooling fluid in the strut. Some people put 280Z struts on their 240Z, to take advantage of the size difference which give them more shocks options. Advantage to the larger diameter shocks is; more fluids in the shock for pressure adjustments up and down and heat resistance.
  3. Good point, I forgot about that. Thinking more about this and reading the comments maybe the best idea would be to start another thread (do not want to take away from this thread) and get a list of Wheel manufactures that make custom wheels (offsets, sizes and lug combinations). Thanks to Nelsonian for listing a few: Boosted300, Great thread. What size wheels and tires do you have on the front? (sorry if you have already mentioned it, I can seem to find it when looking back).
  4. Hello Boosted300, Is it possible to take measurements backed by pictures of the inside if your rim the next time you take your wheels off, then post it. Not that I don't trust the calculations, it's just seams easier and final. I think the +17 mm is accurate. 2nd, Does anyone have access to a vendor that would be interested in making wheels with this offset for a group buy, with a matching pair for the front? I would be very interested in a set 17" or 16". First choice would be Volk Racing TE37VE , 2nd ROTA. thx
  5. Great project, open canvas of opportunities for this car. One thing that is a must in my mind, remove the bumpers and put the 240Z ones and you have a cool car. Make plan and try to stick to it and have fun.

    77-78 280Z Voltage/Fuel Gauge

    Hello, I have found a Voltage/Fuel Gauge, thank you for all the responses. The wanted ad can be removed or closed. K
  7. Hello, I'm looking for a 77-78 280Z Voltage/Fuel Gauge in working condition. If anyone has an old one that they do not want anymore, please email me with a pic and how much you want for your gauge. Thank you, K
  8. Thanks for the pics, looks like a good event to put on my list for next year!

    Drive by Wire connector - 05 GTO - LS2

    Well I couldn't find a used harness that I was missing, found a wiring kit that someone posted in another discussion, see the link below: E40 J1 Harness Assembly for 2005-06 GTO ECM http://www.eficonnection.com/eficonnection/ItemDetails.aspx?ItemId=848 Not sure if anyone has used this "Stand-a-lone Fuse/Relay Module", looks like it might do the trick for your fuel pump, fan, starter and ac. http://www.currentperformance.com/Accessories/wiring_acc.html
  10. Excellent job! Really appreciate all the pictures, helps understand how your doing things.

    Drive by Wire connector - 05 GTO - LS2

    I am looking for the wiring harness that comes out from the EMC(C1)or J1 connector to the Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor. I seem to only have the two harnesses that come out from the ECM(C2,C3).
  12. Hello, Looking for the Drive by Wire(DBW) connector and wiring for 05 GTO. I have the DBW throttle pedal, but I didn't get the connector and wiring harness for it. Have the engine and transmission harness. Please email, with how much your asking for it. Thanks,
  13. Your correct, I took a second look at the tank, but would like to eliminate a number of the tubes going to the tank to make it simpler. Will consider adding it back in if I can get some replacement hoses. I'm assuming you kept all the hoses going to the stock tank?
  14. I have no real reason to keep it.
  15. I am using the stock 73 240z tank as well but I have welded on a sump to my tank. Were I’m stuck right now is, where to connect the vent line? I was thinking of routing it to the filler outlet and removing the expansion tank, see first diagram. Second diagram shows were I would like to put the vent line, with the expansion tank removed. Will this allow the tank to breath and keep enough pressure in the tank?
