Re: Rear swing arm bolt

Bolt very tight. But you have to remove the peened over flats on that nut before doing anything else. Dremel cut off wheel is my weapon of choice. And a much longer pipe on that wrench once you get that nut flat thing handled. And maybe some very large friends to stand on the swing arm, or a much lo...

Re: pertronix and fried spark plugs?

Love to see a video of that spark plug hanging in free air with nice sparks happening as you crank it. I'd have to believe in magic again.

Re: pertronix and fried spark plugs?

The plug body has to be connected to ground to get a spark. I don't understand how disconnecting it from ground could possibly result in a spark. Details and pictures will help

Re: Is this ok price for a 510 4dr?

If it truely is a no-rust car, then it is a great price.

I would not buy it without a very thorough inspection however. Even the most apparently 'rust free' Datsun's I've seen normally have a surprising amount once you sand blast them to their bare-all state. Proceed with caution.

Re: Rock Auto Shipping to Canada Cost?

I Rock RockAuto all the time. No surprises, no hidden fees. And faster than ever. I usually get stuff in 2-3 days now. Choose the second least expensive option, which is Fedex. It's just a tiny bit more than the cheap option and much faster. I know my delivery guy by his first name already.

Re: WTB a set of bare 280zx front struts and hubs

We are all the way there! was informed of a 82 280zx at Bucks auto parts here in Calgary, went and "relieved" it of the complete front struts. Even had working and complete brake calipers. Well I can squeeze the pistons and get clear fluid out. Maybe at worst they could use new seals. The only reaso...

Re: WTB a set of bare 280zx front struts and hubs

Ok, we are half way there. I have a set of struts now, just need a set of 280zx hubs. Please dig through your stashes. I have lots of stuff to trade too if that works for you.

72 2door coupe shell. Come and get it.

I'm parting out a 72 2dr. The shell is going to be available to any vultures that wish to come pick its bones for about the next 5-6 days. After that its off to the recycle man. By shell, I mean the sheet metal bones, nothing mechanical. More parts will be available after this winter's round of rest...

WTB a set of bare 280zx front struts and hubs

Hey gang, I'm in need of a set of 280zx front struts. Just need the spindle and hub (with or without bearings), don't need the spring/perch/seats/shocks or any of the related brake items In fact I just need the first 4 inches of the strut tube and a bare hub, don't even need studs or the bolts to at...
