    I once tried side gapping an old set of NGK's and it made an appreciative difference in smoothness of idle, and smoothness of revving. I am not sure about the power, but it felt slightly...

    I have been looking at all these seat installs with custom plates and brackets but I find that, although they work, many seem too weak to hold the seat firmly fixed in an accident. As a back of the...

    I figured he probably hit a racoon or a curb with it at some point. I wasn't sure because I have never seen FG valences in the after market. Must have been a long time ago. I have all the...

    Tape up some body seams and test. Some other ideas...warped or dragging brake drums, worn shocks, misaligned u-joints, bent rim or stub axle, worn rear control arm bushings.

    Fiberglass valence?

    I purchased my 72 from the original owner's son in law. It had been repainted, but was pretty much unmolested. It has what appears to be a fiberglass OEM style valence, and headlight buckets. Are...

    A huge percentage of Weber problems are linkage related...problem is when the linkage doesn't work precisely, tuning them is a moot point.

    Love the wheels, and the car. My baby was born Silver with Red, but the original and previous owner painted the interior black, and the outside wine-red. Nice to see what she would have looked like.

    My first car inherited. I had to make it run, and fix the rust. I mastered the SPICA injection, and then on a trip to Italy, I pulled DCOE Doubles and an intake in a Milan junkyard for $100,000...

    I took the 240Z for its Winter fuel fill up this morning. I actually hit a few snow flakes on the way back from the gas station. That's how badly I don't want to put it away. I wait until...

    Each car is different. I like the sway bars all around but it totally depends on your springs, expectations, and condition of roads. Fortunately, they are relatively easy to add/subtract. I would...

    Did someone say OBX? Yes it works, and it's pretty darned tough. I am going on about 3-4 years with it now (about 350RWHP). No issues. I actually, opened up the back of my R200, and swapped in...

    I highly doubt it. You can make them fit physically, but the stock 280Z EFI isn't going to know what to do with all that fuel.

    The trans is horizontal so the shafts are cantilevered which is not ideal, but they turn nicely in all gears, including reverse when I force the R fork forward or backwards 1/16" or so.

    Transmission Assembly question

    I just finished replacing all the bearings and inspecting all the synchros in my 1982-83 five speed. I assembled it all in the vise, but without the case yet. The case is off so I can test it all. ...
