  1. You should make/get a metal band that is approx 5mm high that fits the circumference of the opening. This fits on the inside of the leather boot and the clips hold the ring and boot to the console. This will ensure no holes or gaps between boot and console. I hope this helps.

    HELP: ignition wont stop..!

    Hi You need to wire up the inhibitor switch that came off the automatic Black/White and Black/Yellow wires are for the Park/Neutral start, these wires are part of the starter motor circuit (can be used for a kill switch?) and need to be connected to each other. Blue/Red and Red/Black are for the reverse lights and these need to be hooked up the reverse switch on the manual gearbox Try this first before chasing other issues That is what I had to do for my conversion

    Back-firing carbies, engine breaking down

    I had a similar issue many years back, replaced points, leads and plugs, adjusted timing etc. Nothing fixed the problem, worked out to be low octane fuel. Now I only run 98 octane fuel. Try a bottle of octane booster to see I that helps then I would chase electrics or carbs.

    rFactor 240z

    To All rFactor Fans I came across this mod for rFactor that has a 240z in it and thought that this must be shared with Zed fans. http://www.mediafire.com/?ralj0s6ro3camuj For those that do some sim racing, here is an opportunity to race a car that we enjoy. Michael

    Engine (Ignition?) issues

    Stupid question did you check if you have oil in your SU's, if not add. This can give a weaker mixture at idle and weaker mixture on acceleration. I would try to richen the fuel mixture at idle with colourtune in place and see what if any difference you get with the colour. This should eliminate fuel. Unfortunately the colourtune won't help in syncing the carbs. Then you can chase ignition ie timing etc. You can do a static timing adjustment ie turn crank by hand until you are at the desired timing point ( ignition off) for #1 cylinder (ie 10 deg) then loosen distributor and turn back until points are closed or for me sensor in dizzy is covered by shutter wheel then turn on ignition and turn dizzy forward until you see/hear spark for points or me electronic module led lights up then tighten dizzy. This should get you close enough to the mark without having a timing light. I hope this helps.

    Running problems

    What octane fuel are you using? If you are using 91 octane try to boost with octane booster or run 95 octane minimum. I had a similar experience and found that fuel was the issue.

    Pertronix Ignitor Kit

    I have used the xr700 before going to a crane msd, worked like a charm. The only thing I upgraded after a period of time was the shutter wheel (made my own). The difference between the XR700 and XR3000 is that the XR700 runs with the ballast resistor. Running the XR3000 (this is the same for the crane msd) you might have tacho issues, I overcame this issue by ripping the guts out of my tacho and replacing with an after market while retaining the needle and faceplate of my original. I hope this helps. Michael

    Rota RB wheels have arrived

    For those that are interested you can fit RB 16X7 and 16X8 both with a 4mm offset, tyres are 225/50 for the front and 245/45 for the back with no fouling, this is my example 260z 2+2.

    rFactor: Online racing

    Glen Thanks for the link had a quick hook up late last night. Just a quick question is this series limited to the old ford or is it opened to all the historic cars or the cars owned under historic series. Mick
