  5. Yesterday
  6. I put RB box in my car and by putting the larger subaru diff flange on my datsun R180 diff I was able to use the complete skyline shaft. These larger skyline unis seem to be able to handle plenty of power. I saw your car at a Japanese car show in Melbourne a couple of years ago. I like the wheels on it so much I bought the same.
  7. Still going on those heads. Finished the metal removal and shaping. Next will be the finished surface. Once I’ve finished my work on the heads I’ll send them to get resurfaced.
  8. Hey guys, Has anyone had experience with door glass from Autoglass Warehouse? Specifically for drivers side 260z 2 seaters made in 1977. I've just gone to install one I purchased a couple of months ago and the mounting holes in the glass don't line up. They're off by 5 - 24mm in various directions. Drilling out the mechanism would move the guides by an unacceptable amount. They're sold to fit 240, 260 and 280 from 1970 - 1978 and appear to have different holes drilled to fit all. I'll contact them on Monday and see what can be done. Cheers, Mike
  9. Hi guys I'm chasing both windscreen washer squirters for a late 260z , same as pictured, let me know what you have, cheers.
  10. I had a chat with Locky and after some discussion, I thought about the diff. The LSD was cooked from the day I got it and after putting clutches in it, it stopped open wheeling. That, along with some stickier tyres, might be causing the issue. When I had the tailshaft redone, the guy said the uni's won't handle more than 300hp, looks like I might need to upgrade the tailshaft. Checking a few more things to see if I can change the angles so the diff/gearbox are parallel.
  11. Last week
  12. If it’s shredding bearings then I would suspect angles are the culprit. Ideally gearbox and diff need to be at the same angle or at least close. The actual angle isn’t really important (no more than 5 preferably) as long as they are the same. Assume it is a conventional tail shaft with slip joint in the gearbox or is the slip joint in the shaft itself?
  13. Up for sale is my early 260z project. Ive owned this for around 6 years but its time for it to move on. The body is in good condition rust wise, except for the radiator panel which has been previously repaired badly. As well as this there is some rust in the LHS chassis rail. As is, it is stripped down to a rolling shell with all the parts from it and an L24 engine. asking $6000. contact me on 0412563768.
  14. Thanks for the reply. They're hardy spicer uni's, no grease nipple. The body of the uni isn't breaking, it's shredding the bearings and breaking the bearing caps.
  15. Are the TS UJ's greasable, Marc? If so, replace them with Hardy Spicer R-seres units. I highly doubt it's the TS angle..
  16. Happy New Year to you all. New Year = New Z problem and I'm hoping someone out there has some wisdom they can share. Sorry for the long post. I'm having an issue with my tailshaft where the rear uni joint keeps breaking. Prior to it breaking the first time, it was in the car for 6 years and never had an issue; the tailshaft was made professionally after I did the s13 gearbox conversion. After it broke the second time, I started looking at the rest of the driveline and noticed my gearbox mount was stuffed. I had another lying around so I replaced it and then used some chain to stop the gearbox from lifting under acceleration. Drove the car easy and there was no vibration and everything seemed fine. Under heavy acceleration, bang, same uni broke. Nursed the car back home and started looking over the whole car. I measured the operating angles between the gearbox and diff and I don't think it's right. Does anyone know what the angles are and what the tolerance is? I've checked online but haven't had much luck yet. My diff is 4° up, tailshaft is 0.5° up and gearbox is 1.5° up. I'm in the process of modifying the gearbox crossmember to suit a S13 polyurethane mount and I'm trying to work out if I need to shift the gearbox to change the angle? I checked the diff mount and it looks fine. The only changes I've done in recent months is coilovers and tyres but that was months ago. I also raised the height of the car slightly to get more ground clearance for a roadworthy so I could get club reg. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Marc.
  17. Not sure why but this does it for me!

  19. I am after a cigarette lighter for my 1976 260Z. I need one that works and is in good condition. I only need the part that goes into the dashboard as I have the piece you push in to get hot. I don't smoke but thought it would be handy for GPS or other things to plug into.

  22. well he watched more than i did! and i dont even know what is factually correct either
  23. That's par for the course with Americans on any topic, I'm a WWII military history buff and some of the supposed info that makes it into video is just nonsense. But Americans invariably believe it, particularly if it's what they want to hear, if it's disputed the general reaction is either silence or references to other nonsense. There is virtually no original research involved in their responses, it's all cut 'n paste over and over again..
  24. I didn't make it that far, so I scrolled to the 21 minute mark to see what he has to say about Dave's M3 and he's still not talk about his much hype stage 1, so I quit and decide to watch something else with a better sound track
  25. I was actually going to post this. But I thought you may want to reel him in further...
  26. Not really...once he moves on past the "history" it gets better. But you won't take away anything new.
  27. Full disclosure: I haven't got a Christmas card list...
