    CBS show Scorpion's main character drives 240Z

    When I saw a commercial for this show a few weeks ago, there was a half-second interior shot of a guy holding a familiar steering wheel... sure enough, now that its aired, in the show's pilot he's...

    I'll check the plugs again (they're new) after running this way for a couple hundred miles. I need to get some new float bowl gaskets and sight glass setup from ZT so that I can the float levels set...

    I guess the answer to that would be "normal": I use the same NGK BP6ES plugs that I've always used i.e. the "recommended Z car plug" :-)

    I found a dense closed-cell foam, came in 1/8" thickness, cost me $100 for the roll but I got enough do 4 or 5 Z's. I put it under my carpets and behind every panel. I also used cheap butyl for...

    I was having a bugger of a time figuring out why I had lean ping (sounds like shaking a spray paint can) under load until I found that my front crab's float level was way lower than the rear. All...

    Update: re-cleaned battery terminals and grounds, put some protectant on the posts, and replaced the terminal clamps.

    Thanks madkaw, I will double-check grounds and connections. Stock dizzy (rebuilt).
  18. What could effect ignition timing while running? Strange problem.

    Last summer, I noticed I had some pinging under load (up a gentle hill in 4th or 5th gear) while driving home from a show in Rochester. When I checked my timing the next day, it was dead on what I...
