Re: 2018 Summer Drive

As Keith eluded, I really need to get off my ass, build and install the surge tank! I didn’t top up in Hope, as I knew we were all stopping in Princeton. And although the speeds were not extreme, the grip generated by our good tires is certainly enough to uncover the fuel pick up. The esses just aft...

Stuck clutch

Ok, throwing this out there in case someone has some ideas. I parked the my 82 ZXT outside for 4 months (Feb-May) as I had no room in the shop. When I went to drive it back in the shop in June, the clutch disc is stuck to the flywheel. Short of pulling the trans, is there some cheater trick you guys...

Re: Rally fun Downunder.

Fun video. Bloody hell these guys were balls to the wall - flat out. Yet so smooth! That flat out run into a hairpin left was beautiful. That’s some really good driving and navigation there.

Thanks for posting. Too bad it wasn’t a 510 as there are still some running down under.

Re: Turbos and B210 boosters

Some 280 Z’s (Not ZX) have the 7/8 MC with boarders on the LH side as well. The ZX shown above might have them on the left side, depending on the manufacture. All ZX BMC are15/16, But he careful as the late ZX’s have a horizontal mounting pattern that won’t work with the 510 vertical mounting patter...

Re: 2018 Summer Drive

I’m pretty sure I’m nuts for getting up at this ungodly hour....
I wonder how far I can push my car down the street before I have to start it, trying not to wake up those I try to respect!

I’ll see the rest of you crazies soon.

I didn't order recently, but my Pilkington glass from a few years ago was a no-tint version.

Re: Turbos and B210 boosters

Regarding blocking off the bleeder nipples, I recall on one of my cars that I did as you suggested - bleed the brakes and then I tightened the screw for the last time and I literally cut the bleeder off flush - cutting in the direction that would tighten the thread - just in case :-) I believe I nee...

Re: engine dies like a switch was thrown

Intermittent electrical issues are tuff to locate. Did you have power and signal from the EI module itself back to the coil? And was there power at the coil itself? That’s a good place to start. There is a very good chance you just moved a conection or a connector somewhere in the process. There is ...

I’ll assume it was just the transmission that hit the scrap pile :-)

So Robyn, in the end what did you figure out?

Re: Holden onto a nissan z

Now that would certainly set some people back, I would guess the photo is from Australia as the coupes are rare even there.

Dash looks great in the car though!

Mad Max fans would remember this as a Holden Murano.

Neat photo. Byron
