    None of the above. The "SUs" that came on Z-cars aren't actually SUs, they are Hitachi HJG46W (USA round tops) or HMB46W (USA flat tops), the design being licensed by SU. They're colloquially...

    A compression test is a good idea and if it shows any signs that something is wrong, make sure you check leak-down as well. If all is healthy, I'd take the head to the machine shop to get checked. An...

    Let's call it 2450lb with AC. There is no way an early 260Z weighs in at 2700lb without Professor Klump in the driver's seat.

    My first suggestion: don't use GVWR as a guide to curb weight unless you also have the maximum load capacity on hand (GVWR=Curb Weight + Max Load).

    An early 260Z weighs in at just over 2400lb,...

    The car baselined at 145hp at the rear wheels and after a bit of tuning and high-octane gas, I had it at 220 with some headroom left. Low octane would probably be more in the 210whp range. ;) That's...

    I believe that you still must smog 1975s but only upon sale, unless that's been changed recently.

    Looks like you have either a 81-83 200SX or 74-80 620 Truck transmission, judging by the gear ratios. I'd guess 81-83 200SX based on the configuration of the transmission. ;)

    I'm pretty sure John is talking about a 432 or 432R. Those are easily 6-figure cars these days.

    Sounds like a hydraulic issue, possibly a leaky clutch master and/or slave cylinder. Also make sure your clutch pedal is adjusted correctly.

    I agree with Mark, I'd go with option 1. Just put in the missing bolt and torque it down.

    These are not torque-to-yield bolts, I'm curious where you got that bit of info?
