    Hi guys,

    We got the bolt out (lots of penetrating oil and a big breaker bar), there is a very, very small warp in it, I will take you up on a spare pair of those bolts if theyre available. That...
  2. Mustache bar mount bolts not parallel, one quite so

    Hi everyone,

    I'm in process of doing urethane bushings and coil-overs, and have noticed something fishy. As the title indicates, the mustache bar bolts aren't parallel, and the passenger-side one...

    I'll add a +1 for heat and lots of penetrating oil. I just pulled my suspension apart today and, possibly due to my z being a rust-free version as previously mentioned, both spindle pins came out...

    Thanks again, the feedback is great!

    As for elaborating, an example of negatively changing a combustion chamber would be milling a head down so far that a quench zone is cut away or maybe a flow...

    Thanks guys, your replies are exactly why I wanted to ask.

    As I understand it, in reference to deck and cam height, removing - for example - .040 from a block deck and .040 from a head surface...

    Hi everyone,

    I'll bump the thread to take on a comment. Like many of us, I think these VTO LeMans wheels are freaking sweet on a z. In my case, I think a set of 15x7s with 205/50 or 205/55 tires...

    Based on experience, focus your search on finding a car with an accident-free chassis, as little rust as possible, a complete interior and all of its body trim. It's relatively easy and cheap to...

    Hi everyone,

    I've survived my first five weeks as an expat, and have gotten the first bits of information as to whether bring the Z here is worth the trouble. My Z is virtually stock, having only...

    Hi everyone,

    I figure it's time to put out my "help" flags, I'm moving to Germany in about five weeks and once I'm settled in I'll be shipping the Z out to live with me. I need to learn the ins n...
  13. Anyone heard of cutting expansion lines between header flanges to prevent leaks?

    Hi everyone,

    I recently heard of a technique some folks have used to prevent header flange leaks on our L-series engines. The technique is simply cutting the flanges apart in between each tube's...

    The hinges can be rotated against the body of the car slightly if you loosen the bolts. That may help.

    My z had one forward corner of its hood that sat high. After trying everything we've...

    Rear LCA interchangeability

    I've seen it in passing in various threads on a couple forums, but I want to ask this group to be certain. Are the factory LCA's from a 280z interchangeable with those of a 240z? Thanks :)
  16. My next generic question about z car setup, this one in regard to tire stretching

    Hi everyone,

    I've another question that isn't specific to z-car science, but is relevant to the general setup thereof.

    My question is in regard to stretching a tire across a wheel for which...

    I love when my threads turn into technical discussions :D I always end up learning much more than I thought I would.

    The comment about the PO having used 280z struts makes me wonder. It's been a...

    The subtlety is what I love about these flares. They almost look OEM. I was hoping some of our resident experts could tell me a bit more. Oh well, can't win 'em all :)

  22. Are flares like this done by simply bending metal?

    Up until now I've not been a fan of fender flares on a z car, but this look really strikes me for some reason. Is this a custom molded flare, or is this the altered metal body? Call me crazy, but I...

    Seam leak?

    It's a sloppy way to troubleshoot, but if it is a seam leak and it's anything faster than a slow drip you should be able to fill the tank a little past half way and spot it with a...
