    I used Dynamat everywhere and added half-inch Dynapad on the floors and quarter-inch Dynaliner on the trans tunnel. These two additional steps made a huge difference in noise and heat reduction.

    I bought Art's bracket for my 73 too. It's the perfect solution and I highly recommend it.

    Thanks Mitchell. This is a new driveshaft that I got from MSA but it won't hurt to check.

    Coastal Man,

    Tell me a little more about your symptoms. Exactly what do I do with the driveshaft; I'm not sure that I completely understand.

    This is an R180 that I got from eBay last year. It was inspected and new seals were installed by Eiji at Datsun Spirit.

    I'll check the exhaust. All six u-joints, including the driveshaft, have been changed. Didn't help!

    Mixelplix,

    Your description sounds like what I'm experiencing. My symptoms start at 60 mph and increase with vehicle speed and I've been afraid to drive it over 70. If the gear backlash is...

    Is there any way to check the diff without replacing it?

    HR369 - the symptoms are related to vehicle speed, not engine speed. I can rev to redline in lower gears with no noise/resonance.

    Mark - I'll have to do more testing about this, but it certainly...

    Dave C.

    Brake drums, u-joints, control arm bushings and shocks are new. Which body seams do you suggest taping?

    Blue, it does seem to be wind related. Where are the bellows that you are referring to? The resonance is definitely coming from the rear of the car.

    It's not a mechanical sound, such as a bearing. Rather it's a low frequency vibration that only appears above 60 and gets worse. Perhaps something in the drivetrain that's out of alignment.
  13. Odd acoustic resonance above 60 mph in 73 240Z

    Hi all,

    For almost a year I've been trying to troubleshoot an odd acoustic resonance that starts about 60 mph and gets worse as vehicle (not engine) speed increases. By 70 mph it's scary, but...

    Julio,

    I'm glad that you're happy with your setup, but just for fun try this. Use your brakes moderately hard on a cool day, and then stop and touch the rear drums if your wheels allow access. ...

    Han,

    I would return the non-vented calipers and concentrate on optimizing the stock system. Premium slotted rotors, stainless brakes hoses, and your choice of high performance (not racing) pads...

    Han,

    I installed the Toyota non-vented calipers last year, with StopTech slotted rotors and Centric Posi Quiet ceramic pads that I got from tirerack.com. Stainless front hoses too. At the same...

    Walter,

    I've had my Wesco belts installed for over a year, and they are a great upgrade. Occasionally the shoulder belt rides up a bit, which I could fix by raising the seat but so far that...

    No need to crawl under the car. Just unplug the relay in the passenger foot well. It will be the one that's warm when the engine is off.

    Brian,

    I had the same battery drain problem when I did alternator upgrade a few years ago, which appears to be unique to the 73 model year. You may know that the electric fuel pump was added as...

    Rob,

    Can you provide more info on why Dave Rebello will use your E31 on an L28? Has your head been modified already, and if so what did you do?

    Yes, for my needs the Toyota four piston is an improvement but it's far from ideal and not up to modern standards. If it wasn't for my beloved 14" wheels I'd seek another solution.

    Bill,

    Are you referring to the close ratio 5-speed and 3.90 diff? If so, then yes it's a great combination.

    I'm running the Centric Posi-Quiet pads in Toyota 4x4 calipers on my 73. Absolutely no noise or dust. Since my dd is an Audi the dust issue is important.
