Re: "83 280ZX close ratio box and 3:90 differential

I guess I should add that the late "close ratio" 280ZX gearboxes with the tall 5th gear can be identified by having the 10mm speedo pinion sleeve retaining nut on the bottom (6 o'clock position). Gear ratios are: 7/70-6/83 3.062 1.858 1.308 1 0.745 Compared with the chart above from the Motorsports ...

Re: "83 280ZX close ratio box and 3:90 differential

Something the OP needs to realize- the 280ZX had something like 205/60-15 tires. Much taller 24.7" diameter vs. a nominal 23" tire in a 510. And the L28E had a lot more torque than a four, and a lot more weight to motivate. So gear ratio and diff ratio are not the complete story. That said, I just w...

Re: Swift springs

My understanding is that Swift use a proprietary spring steel alloy that allows for thinner wire diameter for a given spring rate, so they provide marginally more travel before stacking solid. This can be significant if running short 8" springs on a 510. I changed from 8" Eibach to Swift and noticed...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Took my fresh build on a 230mi round trip today. Passed with flying colors! Only had 140mi on the clock to start the day. Really looking forward to that 500mi break-in oil change so I can finally give it some stick!

Re: Larger OD yoke washer source

Motorsport Auto has the thick, large diameter factory manifold washers. Is this per chance what you are looking for?http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/ ... 9o/14-0373

A few more period Safari pics. 1970 champs. Note lack of front flares. Did they add the flared fenders during the event? : https://i.imgur.com/peBqhVy.jpg Joginder Singh placing good luck talisman on his Bluebird grille: https://i.imgur.com/s10wJL9.jpg No glass! https://i.imgur.com/9Lxhx1H.jpg 1970 ...

Re: westwood and race car pics

Lots of great pics! Love all the period wheels. Libres make everything look better (MGs, Mazdas, Pintos, even a 2002). That might be the only F-10 I've ever seen on a racetrack. Was that Lee "Mother" Mueller in the Huffaker TR8? Also some great shots of the Lauren St. Lawrence VIPs Z. Not to mention...

Re: Mikuni's going rich after high lateral G's

I just remembered this tip that someone recommended and worked well for autocross- change out the 1.8 float bowl needle valves for 2.0s. I think the argument was something like the extra flow volume capability helps replenish the fuel level in the float bowls quicker.
