Re: Pilkington Windshields - Easy and new Availability

Just curious, slowerthantime when did you put your order in? June I believe about 2 weeks after it was announced on the Realm that Summit was selling them. Just feeling a bit passed over as you got yours before me, although I ordered before you. I started the darn thread! I ordered mine mid June.

Re: 15x6.5 +15 or 15x7 0 offset?

I emailed Dave Patten a similar question a couple of weeks ago about fitment with stock/ rolled fenders on 280zx struts. His answer: "205/50-15 works well on a 7" rim. Go with a +18 offset and use a spacer up front to keep the tire off the 280ZX strut tube. With the same offset wheels you can rotate...

Re: THE OLDEST 510

My 70 2dr isn't the oldest but I recently made a cool connection learned a bit about it's early life. Manufactured 05/70.PL510-165489 Last week I was digging through a pile of shop manuals and found the original warranty book and owners warranty card. The name and address of the original owner were ...

Re: Another transmission ID.

It does seem like an odd ratio, not much different from 4th. On the plus side, I guess it might still pull in 5th.

As 510rob pointed out, it looks like someone has been tinkering with it.

Re: Another transmission ID.

1st through 4th agree with your ratios. 5th seems like it is 0.93 (20 input turns = 21.4 output turns)

Another transmission ID.

Can anyone fill in the blanks on this 5 spd transmission? From what I can find on the web it seems like its a FS5W71B which could have been from a variety of vehicles (Incl 280ZX?) and years. Any info appreciated.

Re: Cam info

Did some digging. Electramotive Engineering sold to Nissan and became Nissan Performance in 1990...you guys probably know all that. So I took a look at the 1990 performance catalogue. If the Nismo L3 is the same animal as the Electramotive L3; it lists as part # 99996-D1019 with .620" lift/ 300 degr...
