    Aha. Okay, that's helpful. Thank you.

    I guess the first thing I need to know is which diff I have. How can I tell?

    My second question is - using only the parts shown in my other thread, am I...

    Thanks, that's very helpful. Please take a look at this post. This is not a complete half shaft, but is there anything here that might help?

    Please tell me exactly what fails on the shafts, and...

    That's what I thought. Not only is 3rd to 4th about 0.01 closer than 2nd to 3rd, but I can use it nearly twice as often in the race.

    I still need to figure out what trannies I have exactly. I...

    That's very helpful! I had a new engine put in at the same time as the new tranny, so it is possible that the increase in speed was due to the engine alone and not the tranny at all. I'll check for...

    Don't know... we never use 5th gear on the track and I've never shifted it into 5th.

    The car is up on a lift for a few days but maybe we can at least see if it will shift into 5th cleanly. That's...
  6. Transmission problem - won't go into reverse

    Howdy all;

    My 74 260z **racecar** has been retro-fitted with a 2.8L and a 5-speed tranny. I don't know which 5-speed it is.

    When putting it into reverse, the shifter grinds and will not stay...
  7. Half Shaft Failure - is it a common Z problem?

    I had a half shaft fail on my 260z racecar a few years ago. Is this a common problem for Z cars, especially since mine has a welded diff?

    We have a race coming up later this month and I'm...

    Help me ID these parts

    Hi all;

    Can anyone help me identify these parts for my 260z? Just found a bin of parts and am going through it.

    Looks like maybe pic #1 is a half shaft? Pics 2 & 3 are the same parts from...

    Since this is a racecar and I don't need turn signal ports, either one should work if they mount the same... do they? Tx!

    Is there any difference between the early and late model 260 front valances?

    Need complete lower front valance... best deal I can find online is $155 for all 3 pieces, shipping included.

    Does anyone have any better ideas? Thanks!

    I ran with cracked glass for a long time, but last year they freaked out and demanded it be replaced. I asked them if uncracked aftermarket glass was as strong as OEM with a crack, and if aftermarket...

    I like the look, but my trailer has such a bad angle that I'm afraid it wouldn't clear. That's a constant headache on this car... and since valances are cheaper than trailers... well... :)
