Re: 510 newbie, 240z veteran

Welcome aboard. As others have mentioned DP racing, and Futofab are great resources. I have bought a lot from DP racing. Don at DP used to race 510's and is very knowledgeable and his prices are reasonable. Personally I would rather support smaller businesses like his instead of Techno Toy Tuning th...

Re: 5spd Transmission grinding and rebuild questions

RMS do you mean to run ATF for a bit to clean things out then replace with something else? It seems like the Redline MT90 is recommended by a lot of people, is there something better I should try? I think I have seen people mention Penzoil Synchromesh. Mike I think I put the correct release collar f...

5spd Transmission grinding and rebuild questions

Hey guys, I just got my car running and I installed a 280zx 5 speed that I bought off of craigslist. When driving if I really take my time with slow shifts everything works fine but if I do any fast shifts I get grinding which is most pronounced from 2nd to 3rd, but I will get it in other gears as w...

Re: 510 Badge Location

Here are some photos from inside the trunk of my 71. I was trying to find some common points/parts to reference off. For the vertical spacing the holes are centered ~2 51/64" (~71mm) down from the underside flange of the tail light opening, or ~1 33/64" (~38.5mm) down from the body crease. Maybe mea...

Re: What strut is this?

If they were shortened and he bought stock shocks and they were too small would seem to imply that they aren't stock, not sure if that is helpful. As Cartel said it's probably best to measure.

Re: Five-Hundred and Ten

Great build, keep It up!! I just read through the whole thing. Did you end up rebuilding the trans yourself?

Re: Need help tuning L20 -running too lean on throttle

Thanks Mike, I appreciate the write up and copied this information for future use. It's good to know some of the issues and things to sort out going in to it. I am thinking of ponying up the money to get a BoggBrothers intake.

Re: Need help tuning L20 -running too lean on throttle

Great info guys. Keith I saved that PDF about the 5200 carbs, i am a visual learner as well so seeing the diagrams is super helpful. Understanding what the carb is doing makes it seems less like voodoo magic. It's good to know about the spark plug heat ranges as that's something I didn't know much a...

Re: Need help tuning L20 -running too lean on throttle

Thanks again guys for the feedback. I was having those A/F numbers "17-18 lean when giving it the throttle but now you say 14-15 dropping to mid 12s" but I have been pulling it in to range as I tweak jetting. I just went for a drive and things are looking pretty good across the board and it seems to...

Re: Need help tuning L20 -running too lean on throttle

Thanks guys. I checked for leaks with propane and didn't notice anything. I will check for blockages to be sure. It's hard for me to tell exactly when the secondary is kicking in. If the secondary's are kicking in at half throttle then it seems like it gets to about 14-15 when really giving it throt...

Re: Need help tuning L20 -running too lean on throttle

I think you can calibrate the AEM sensor and I believe I did that but I will investigate if I can do that again to be safe. Below is an image of the #1 plug with ~40 miles on it. I was doing normal driving for the last 5 miles or so before I pulled it. On another note I have been working on this car...

Re: Need help tuning L20 -running too lean on throttle

Thanks guys. Are you guys talking about the plug pointed out in the image below? Today i also noticed the PVC tube was kinda kinked. When you say it would cause an "intermittent air bleed" what do you mean? Like an intake/vacuum leak? Keith for now I am running the car without the vacuum advanced ho...

Re: Need help tuning L20 -running too lean on throttle

This is probably going to be a dumb question but where on the manifold do I pull vacuum from? I took a couple of pictures of my manifold for reference. My A87 head doesn't have provisions for intake cooling so those are blocked off. I verified timing with a non adjustable timing light and it's at 15...
