    Default Beck/Arnley Valve Springs Don't Fit!!

    I have a 1976 280z that I'm rebuilding, and I got the Beck/Arnley 023-1142 outer valve springs for it, only to find that they're way too big! The internet has told me on several sites that they should fit; why don't they?! I have the L28 engine, base model; are the spring different for the 2+2?? Thanks!!

    As Area Sales Manager for a large automotive aftermarket parts manufacturer I can confidently tell you that Beck Arnley is a reboxer of parts, often times liquidated by others manufacturers. It is possible they are not the right springs, even though the part number says so.

    Do you know where my Grandpa's 240z is? He sold it around 1994. I think it was a 72. It was orange with black interior and some sort of scissors style aftermarket crank up sunroof. I think it was sold to a fellow pharmacist and I think he was from Egg Harbor Wisconsin. At the time the car had between 32-36k original miles. He sold it for the lowly sum of $3000-$3500. My grandpa passed away a few years ago and I would like to know its whereabouts.
