R180 Diff

Latest Posts - Fri, 08/06/2018 - 22:28
Hey guys

Selling my R180 diff I believe its a 3 5 ratio, It came out of my auto 240z.

Not sure why but when you spin the flange both sides spin, but its not a LSD. Can anyone shed some light on this.

$500 pick up from Sydney Hills District Attached Thumbnails

The LightMaster Experience - REBOOTED.

Latest Posts - Fri, 08/06/2018 - 22:25
I'm posting up a few pics of the work I'm currently doing to Bruce's 240Z.
I've been hassling him for the last few month to let me at it - I didn't want to see it deterorate any further...
Bruce dropped it off mid last week & I've been doing a few hrs a day on it.

The current working list is as follows:
New P/S floor pan (rare sapres item).
New P/S chassis rail.
Re-fabricate the inner guard under the battery tray... (eeek!).
New Ferodo GT2 brake pads (the current Bendex's squeel like a 12yo, when cold...).
New waterpump.
New headgasket & reco the cyclinder head - I'll clean up the ports while I'm at it.

BTW, Bruce politly imformed me the other night that his username is actually 'SPA-master240' as he sells outdoor/portable Spa's for a living. NOT SPAM-aster240... Attached Thumbnails

Not much of a TV person so no Foxtel or whatever is broadcasting this on Sunday so any live streaming available? Link?

 

Going to be a tough one, Horn if he can take control early on.

Help! How To Buff My Rough Acrylic Paint Job

Latest Posts - Fri, 08/06/2018 - 16:19

It's not too bad, has sort of a fine bumpy surface and I'm not expecting a big shine, race car. But a bit better before the graphics go on would be good, I have a rotary buffer with wool and foam pads and don't want to risk going though, no experience means a cautious approach that can improve the finish a bit. Advice?

Chasing Parts For Hs30-00127

Classifieds - Thu, 07/06/2018 - 22:01

So I managed to score a fair few parts for my Z shell over the weekend but thought I'd put up a list of what I'm still chasing.

First off is a steering column or parts of, to finish off what I've got. I was having a play around with a 510 column shaft which fits but has a splined uni-joint rather than a two bolt flange.

 

So here's what I have:

34529051_10157486862583146_7313221066086678528_n.jpg 34559219_10157486864023146_8184945976583127040_n.jpg 34480158_10157486863823146_2650959797704196096_n.jpg

 

With the 510 column and shaft:

 

34665492_10157486863718146_1866422942359879680_n.jpg 34483629_10157486862593146_8435664713961963520_n.jpg

 

...and then the rest.....

 

Bonnet latch (got the base plate and catch)

 

Bonnet badge

 

Quarter badges

 

Doors, door glass and regulators (got frames, cards, handles, locks etc)

 

Lower door hinges (got good uppers)

 

Gutter mouldings

 

Hatch and glass (got mounting hardware and rubbers)

 

Complete pedal box

 

Heater box

 

Centre console

 

Passenger seat

 

Drivers seat adjuster handle

 

Rear sway bar brackets

 

Horn pad

 

Any leads or advice on what others have used would be much appreciated e.g. anyone using Alpha doors or hatch?

 

Cheers!

Genuine Synchros For Early/71A 5 Speed Manual Boxes

Latest Posts - Thu, 07/06/2018 - 03:55

Does anyone have any info on these regarding their status as NLA?

 

My local supplier believes he has found some (though at an alarming price) and am not sure whether to believe it or not.

 

Has anyone had any luck sourcing them recently?

 

Cheers,

James
