    I didn't know until a day or so ago and wanted to wait until it was made public.
    So now I feel it can be more widely shared.

    hmd reacted to gav240z in What Did You Do On Your Z Today?   
    Since it's lockdown in Victoria. I decided to do a long overdue job. Valve clearance adjustment on the white 71. They were nearly all too tight. Exception of 1 or 2 valves.
    I did them cold, because doing them hot is tricky because them motor can cool down quickly. I also had a hell of a time getting #4 exhaust but undone. Since it has limited room for adjustment and you don't wanna bust ya knuckles on the sharp edge of the engine head.
    The benefit though is the engine sounds much nicer and quieter.
    For those doing it. Intake is 0.20mm clearance. Exhaust 0.25mm.
    Turning top nut anti clockwise will tighten the gap, turning it clockwise with open the gap.
    I used cardboard to check off the valves as I did them and turned the motor from the cam sprocket (with plugs out).

    So I treated myself to a 40th present when I couldn't have a party to celebrate a few weeks back. I've been a Skyline R33 and Stagea 260RS owner amongst other Jap performance stuff in my younger days, got lost to European cars in my 30's and now back to the real classics!
    This is a 02/74 260z 2+2 Auto Chassis 000516 so its a pretty early build GRS if I have done my research correctly. Its just started the journey from Townsville to Melbourne on a truck today, hopefully have it in 2-3 weeks, dependent on the transport company. I got a huge amount of pics (Yes, got plenty of underbody!) and honesty from the seller which made my decision to go for it without an inspection an easy one. At the price it was advertised, I knew it would get lots of interest. 
    Its largely standard but has L28 fitted, don't really know too much more than that! Once I've got it, the plan is get it on the road and take it from there.....not quite sure where it will end up as I originally wanted to buy an already built Resto-mod, but lets wait and see.

    That looks the same as what mine were, from memory the LSD centre buttons they thread into are only about 8mm thick.

    Well it's taken some work. I was very nervous with the first start up close. Having put many hours hand building the motor all I wanted was oil pressure and for it to run.
    What a great day it's been in lockdown.

    Each to their own but for me if I want an RB turbo I get the R32. And for the Z I would keep the L6.

    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

    I was talking to the mrs about downsizing when the kids eventually bugger off, and she replied you couldn't possibly move you have too many cars.
    Obviously she hasn't seen something like the above.

    My tip to get it done ASAP. I had approved plan to get an extra 4 car garage and thought builder quote of 75K 10 years ago was expensive. And now there's no chance I can get it done for that amount of money.
