    Spotted is Japan

    Visited the Meiji Shrine in Shibyua City today. We arrived and found this in the car park. Went for a walk and just missed catching up with the owner by a few minutes as he was driving off as we arrived back in the car park. Very disappointed we didn’t get to say G Day. Jeff

    Main body earth (Negative) link location

    Thanks boys. The fine earth wire from the negative terminal to the fire wall will be the same wire just a different location. I’m guessing that either the factory changed it over the years or it’s been relocated for good looks. Jeff

    Main body earth (Negative) link location

    They must have it installed some place or the earth circuit would not work. My car had it installed (originally) at the bonnet latch. I worked that much out as it was in the container with the latch but could not remember where the other end went. I have put it back as Mr Nimoy and PB have said and as it was originally and it looks ok. Jeff

    Wandering Steering?

    Peter If you have moved the lower arm pivot points and the tension rod is too short its probable that the toe angle is changing as the suspension travels (bump steer) more than it would normally Also your caster is not be correct as you said. All of this is making the car very steering sensitive. A steep strut angle (as you now have) (less caster) will make the steering very lively where as a slack strut angle (more caster) will make the steering less active. Jeff

    Wandering Steering?

    Peter. Have a read of this https://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/a111/1272576/ Can be lots of things. Front rear left side right side etc. You can get them perfect, look at the boys and their race cars. Jeff

    just can't get the doorglass to line up

    It looks to me as if you have them in the correct spot. I suggest you wind the window down a little, loosen off the front slide. Grab the window glass through the door and lift the front of it up so the back edge of the glass is parallel with the rear of the window sash. Then secure the slide, wind the window up and tighten everything up. The problem is that the glass is down at the front. Jeff

    just can't get the doorglass to line up

    When I was putting my driver’s door back together (passengers not done yet) recently I had a similar problem. I resolved it by loosening off all of the runner and sash bolts. The runner that the window regulator runs on and the runner or slide that the window glass slides on (at the front of the door) plus the sash mounting to allow the sash to move a bit. I wound the window up and pushed the glass into position snugly. Then wound the window up tight. Then returned and tightened all of the runner/slide and sash bolts into position. Photos are of the instructions from the manual that I read after doing the work. Jeff

    Main body earth (Negative) link location

    Thanks Mr Fowler. I like the new ears! Jeff
  13. Help needed. I know what it is but for the life of me I cannot remember where it goes. The main body earth link wire. It’s about 250mm long and a 4mm wire. Can someone let me know where it goes from and too on a standard car please. Almost the last piece of the under bonnet puzzle. Jeff

    Jeff's 240z build

    Thanks Dave Yep the Meta 29. 170mm up front and 160mm down back. Long and low. Descends like a DH bike but still climbs like a trail bike. Bloody ripper. Thanks Jeff. It does look very sexy. Thanks. Nice little hard tail those Malin's enjoy. I like the plushness of long travel suspension myself :-). Jeff

    Jeff's 240z build

    A few old friends were re united this weekend. Engine gear box are back in the car. Half the exhaust has been fitted. Both L and R quarter windows have new rubbers and have been shoe horned into position (that was a job and a half with the new rubbers). Plus a few more small jobs. Progressing a bit slowly as I have been distracted by a new ride in my life. Picked up a new MTB a few weeks ago and it’s so much fun to ride. Jeff
