Re: WTB: 510 stock front seat backrest

You need a complete seat back/backrest/cushion/frame assembly with GOOD vinyl for a 2dr (4dr & Wagon does not recline)? Ugh. 99% of drivers sides are torn. Are you missing the seat back, is yours damaged/broken or the vinyl is torn? I might have a passenger side that is good..........I do NOT know i...

Re: WTB body parts and vg parts(located in NC)

By front clip, do you mean the outer sheetmetal ie hood & fenders etc, OR do you mean the front frame assembly? Do you want a FRONT bench seat? They are VERY RARE here in the States, as I don't think they were available here......maybe only 1968, if that! They were available in Mexico, so maybe some...

Re: 5spd Transmission grinding and rebuild questions

Mike........you are correct, wrong terminology with phenolic! HOWEVER, that early 5th synchro is a steel ring, with a coating on it & we do flip them!

Re: Door wont open stuck closed.

No door panels is easy! Put windows UP, then you can see it all. The door handle to latch rod is adjustable by the white plastic "nut". I don't think the door lock rod is adjustable.....it kinda just floats in place, simply moves up to unlock, down to lock. If you think the problem is in the locking...

Re: Door wont open stuck closed.

^^^^^^^ what MikeY said...........pull drivers side door panel & acquaint yourself with the mechanism. Probably want to roll passenger side window down, cuz I think when down, it will give you a little more ability to not only get a coat hanger/rod down there, but also so perhaps you can see down th...

Re: Door alignment question

The heater core AND the wiper motor are 1968 only, so hopefully he is supplying correct 1968 spare parts! The dash is also 1968 only, but the 1969 dash "looks" similar with quick glance! I don't think ANY of the 1969 dash parts are the same............ FYI it could very well be titled as a 1969, if ...

Re: WTB- 2DR 510 ROCKER MOLDING

I will have the wire spring clips if needed, but the end clips........metal plate with a stud......are harder to find, cuz most got rusty & then the tiny stud breaks. I've always figured you can go to a Dorman supplier, buy a similar part & trim down the "plate" to fit the trim...........

Re: WTB - Rear control arms

Expensive WITH the weight of the hubs.....might need two separate boxes.....?? Without hubs, two CAN ship in one box. They are also bulky, so that adds to the cost. Surprised you can't find anything near you, being in WA state........!!

Re: What rear seats are these?

A good upholstery shop might be able to take a matching WRX rear seat, likely cut it down to fit the (smaller) 510 & re-work the OEM Subbie material to fit the now custom formed seat. I've heard of people doing that, so I grabbed the front AND rear seat out of the 1998 Honda Prelude, just haven't in...

Re: 5spd Transmission grinding and rebuild questions

.......AND if you have the early Z/ZX 5speed with the .864 5th ratio (2 cast ears on the tail housing), those have a phenolic 5th gear synchro ring that is long discontinued & NOT in the rebuild kit. The later 5speeds use a typical brass synchro ring that does come in the rebuild kit. That earlier p...

Re: 5spd Transmission grinding and rebuild questions

Also I need to get the striking rod because I have a suspicion that it's bent. Yes, those upper shift rods can bend, we have replaced 2 or 3! The last generation of the 82-83 280ZX 5speeds had a 2 bolt plate on the drivers side tail housing, allowing access to that tapered pin............they are s...

Re: WTB- 2DR 510 ROCKER MOLDING

All 68-72'ish 2dr 4dr & Wagon are the same part with the rolled metal ends. The plastic end caps might have come on the late 72-73, and/or they were an OEM replacement over-the-counter part by part #, likely had the plastic caps cuz of re-tooling the part at some point.
