Zed I may have a spare.................

And they didnt tell the hole story, Mick must have a need for speed and a sense of direction based on lingering hi-octane fumes, they were supposed to take the turn off on the Calder at keilor Melton road but kept going till they reached the BP station at Calder Park raceway.

I get a call saying we are at the BP on the Calder and are just sorting out our directions, so I jump in the car to meet them there, its a wonder they didnt get a hankering to try out old Bob's track while they waited for me.

Luckily I guess Mick was in an old LPG Triton, if it was one of the Zed's I doubt he waould have passed up the opportunity.

And you didn't let us know you were comming?!
Very disappointed Mick... :(

P.S. Because of this, I've now taken you off my Xmas card list.


sorry lurch it was a rushed trip and i was only in my crappy triton
if it was this weekend i would have come to the jag club meet

Jane i would have been OK if my gps didn't go flat My brain wasn't working to good after 9 hours of driving lol

zedman I do have an extra one of these dizzys but i think i might be greedy and keep it just incase i decide to run the l20et in the 260z down the track

i also painted my sway bar. This is a 260z 2+2 sway bar so it is a bit heavier than the standard 240z sway bar.
I also reassembled my rear cradle a little bit just to make it feel like i have been doing something. I never noticed that one trailing arm is up side down I thought this was dodgy until i looked under my 260z and noticed it was the same

Mick, can you please check if the L28 turbo and L20 turbo distributors are the same?  I figure an L20 turbo one might be a bit easier to get hold of here in Aus.

For anyone interested I called Asquith Auto Wreckers and they didn't have any 2nd hand ones but can get new ones for $500.  A bit more than I want to spend for what I'm going to do with it though.

Shane, Not sure if you know but just in case, the distributor drive for the turbo dizzy's have a spline and the tongue for the drive. The normal dizzy's just have the offset tongue. Excuse the hijack of this thread! Wont be a habbit

Shane, they are both physically the same, however they have different numbers stamped on them.
As far as i know they mechanical they are both the same
I am thinking you are ruining an after market distributor so the electrics shouldn't matter

As Dmitri said the turbo distributors have a different spline on their drive so either the drive or the distributor shaft has to be changed.

my l28et distributor came with a different shaft to make it run in the non turbo l28/ 26/ 24
i am not sure what it came from but the guy i got it from seemed to think that they are hard to get
If you need to know more mby a search on it at hybrid zed might help. They have a complete section on the turbo L series

Thanks Mick & Dimitri

I've decided I'm just going to set it up through the standard distributor for now and worry about sequential later if I think it's necessary.  I don't care about drivability or economy for my application so probably not.......

yeh mate ;)
I have been working on the engine bay. I have removed all the paint from the bay and now i am fixing all the imperfections. i have removed the battery tray and found a bit of rust underneath, surprise surprise. Also the rad suport is a bit out of shape so ill be doing a bit of work to that.

I am now trying to get a couple of hours a day work done so hopeful i will have a few more updates to show you guys 

cheers
mick

I may not catch your Zed in a straight out road race when they are both finished, but I'm going to stay on your tail all the way during our restores Mick, so keep an eye on your rear view mirror.......LOL

By the way, where is Jane these days?
