    His last post here was March of 2009 and his last visit was the following month. I don't recall mention here of selling the car so it was possibly on a different forum.

    I'm glad he's OK and that the car will survive.

    My twist on the old adage has to do with politicians: believe everything they say about their opponents and nothing they say about themselves.

    I don't see the difference. The sender is a simple device that varies resistance with oil pressure. If the sender indicates no oil pressure it's likely a bad sender but could also mean there's...

    I read the post as saying, sure, you can charge a battery at low amperage (not specifically "good" or "proper") it's just going to take a long time. If the clock draws 10 mA and will drain the...

    I've seen it claimed otherwise but I distinctly remember pulling my oil pan to replace the gasket with the engine in the car. I believe the clearance was tight (perhaps the anti-sway bar was in the...

    10,000 above the high end of the estimate not including the extra fees. It's nice to see that only the Bentley and Aston Martin sold for a higher price. I suppose it's safe to assume that the...

    I have a 6 Amp charger if needed. However, I'm convinced I killed my previous battery by letting it go dead multiple times. I'd want to drive the car for the first time in months, find the battery...

    Mine is warm to the touch (115 degrees F) even when in 'float mode' (solid green light) so presumably it's normal to be warm. If yours is still trying to charge I wouldn't not be surprised if it's...

    No



    Yes. Unlike a normal "trickle charger" which charges a battery at 2 or 6 amps for a few hours a battery "tender" charges at milliamp levels and is designed to be left on the car for an...

    I don't recall the tender ever being warm at all but I'll verify when I get home. I disconnected the positive charger clamp from the battery to measure just the battery voltage instead of unplugging...

    It seems to me that there are many flash-based image viewers out there. A Google search for "flash image viewer" (without the quotes) turns up this:

    No one responded to Arnie's question in post #12 about the speedometer not being in kilometers. Is it likely that the speedometer was replaced with an mph version after it moved 'out of market'?

    The "home made" mesh job grill is actually the domestic market version and appears to be in good shape.

    Yes, and many people have done this. I know that later 280 and 280ZX starters are so-called gear reduction starters which are a better design.

    20 weight oil goes in the top of the carbs. Some people use ATF. It's a dampener, not a lubricant. It will only affect throttle response, not whether the engine will fire.
