  1. Diff side output bearing question

    After replacing all the bushings, struts and springs and putting in a Ron Tyler Diff mount, I finally found out where the famous rear clunk problem is on my 1978 280Z. It is clunking where the axle...

    I have a '78 also and had the same problem. After replacing all my hoses and such, I still had a high idle so I removed my BCDD valve at the bottom of my throttle body and capped it. This solved my...

  5. Speedo cable is hitting steering coupler on '78 280Z

    My speedo cable is drooping down and hitting the steering coupler. Does anyone have any good pics that shows how it is supposed to be secured? This cable is in the dark on all of the pics that I have...

    Thanks! I've done alot of reading too but there are so many contradictions. Some people even wish that they would have stuck with their stock manifolds. I would not be thinking of headers, of coarse,...
  7. Need 1978 280Z header suggestions

    I discovered that my exhaust manifold has a crack at the #6 stud and I also broke all three of the large rusty studs at the flange the the exhaust. Instead of trying to get the exhaust manifold...

  9. 1978 280Z Rear clunk after installing new poly bushings

    I've read all the comments about worn out parts causing the rear clunk but mine is just the opposite. I have a 1978 280Z that made no rear clunking noise what so ever with the old rubber bushings. I...

    The exhaust manifold might have a slight warp but now it is very small and the noise is barely audible. I never remove the exhaust manifold because the 3 bolts on the flange were very rusted and...

    Did the Sea Foam treatment through the brake booster hose. Besides smoking up my garage and half the neighborhood, I did find an exhaust leak at the bottom of #6 exhaust bolt on the manifold. I...

    Yes. It stopped ticking when I removed the plug wire to #6. When I swapped #5 and #6 plug wires, though, it started ticking again. I pretty much ruled out the plug wires, plugs and injectors by...
  13. Thanks! I'll try that.

    Thanks! I'll try that.
  14. Thanks for your suggestions. I was contiplating...

    Thanks for your suggestions. I was contiplating using Gunk valve medic or something similar but I was afraid that I might break some deposts loose and clog up my oil pump. My valve train does look...

    I have already replaced the gasket. It don't go away when it's hot though. It starts ticking when it gets hot; just the opposite.
    Thanks
  16. Thanks! I suspected that but I thought that most...

    Thanks! I suspected that but I thought that most exhaust manifolds mostly leaked when everything was cold then went away when things warmed up Gaskets expanding and such). I'm still kinda of new to...

    No! When I take either the plug wire or the FI connector off the ticking goes away. Some how it's related to #6 cylinder.

    I've been working on a problem for several of months that I can't figure out. When my engine warms up all the way, it starts making a ticking noise. It is worse under load. I first thought of an...

    While removing my TC bushings. The welded metal cup that holds the front of the bushing in place came off because it was rusted out. Does anyone have a fix for this problem other than having a new...
  20. Exhaust EGR plug size for 1978 280Z

    My EGR tube on my 1978 280Z has a bad exhaust leak where it comes out of the manifold. The past owner tried to repair it with metal tap but that obviously didn't work too good. I want to take it out...
