    I dove into this thing yesterday, and I think people may have been seeing something in the pics that I wasn't seeing up close. I'd say more than half of the bolts I've tried to remove have sheared...

    Nobody has even given me a nibble on this thing, so I'm taking it apart. Will try again before it goes to the JY to offer the chassis less the parts I've removed and the short block (#'s match, I...

    Well, here it is: 1970 240Z rolling chassis, 1970, $ 1,000.00

    $1000 for the chassis, or $1350 for the chassis with my rotisserie and an engine hoist and load leveler. I also have the hatch, doors,...

    Either of the 280ZX rear disc setups work. I had the early caliper setup on my Z. It was way too weak for the Toy front calipers, but it will actually fit under a 13" rim. I believe the later 280ZX...

    Is his name Ian? He saw the pics and was pretty excited, then when he realized how much was missing the enthusiasm waned. This is a rolling chassis. Good project for a person with a rotted...

    What is this 70 rolling chassis worth?

    #6301, just picked it up expecting to strip parts off of it and junk it. Has the original motor (I assume) with E31 which doesn't look like it has been cut. Trans is in the passenger compartment. No...

    The FI comparison isn't a good one. Carbs can run pretty much any cam, although the specs on the cam will vary how the car runs in a particular rpm range. Wasn't able to find a "Far 311" cam by...

    If it isn't greaseable, don't grease it. Most greaseable U-joints are weaker because they either have a threaded hole drilled in the cross to mount the zerk or the cross is hollow to get the grease...

    A gear set will be next to impossible to find. A 3.70 differential is easy to find. I believe most (all?) Z31 300ZXs came with 3.70s.

    To be fair, John, they used to actually have street races right there on the weekends. I don't know if you were ever there at the Rock Store in the 80's. They would hold traffic coming down, two...

    Mulholland is alright. There are much better roads in that area. Stunt, Latigo, Decker, Tuna Cyn, Encinal, etc. I think Mulholland is easy to access from LA, so the street racer kids would run up...

    I buy GM trucks because they're powerful and reliable. I wouldn't personally buy a Cobalt, but I've autoxed a turbo one and it was faster than my Miata by a few seconds and was fun to drive too. I...

    Yes, it is common enough to bring a spare. On a 240 you just need 2 14mm wrenches, but I think some of the later cars had the stub that plugs into the diff as part of the halfshaft. Not sure if that...

    Just to clarify, my company sold driveline parts, we didn't do driveline work. But that shaft came from preith, who built it for use in his race car but never used it.

    FWIW I have an early driveshaft with new U-joints, which I bought and then decided to go the V8 route. $50 shipped if you're interested.

    On a 70 you can shim between the trans mount and the body to change the driveshaft angle. I would look into that and verify that the driveshaft angles are parallel. There are threads on hybridz.org...

    If you did the 3.54, you would have stock 280Z gearing. Which sucks (IMO). If you did the 3.90 with the wide ratio, that would make 1st gear ridiculously low.

    Best combo is a close ratio 80-83...
