  1. Hi guys, I'm chasing like the title says 260Z steering columns and Bluebird series 2 distributors if anyone has anything laying around. Cheers, Justin
  2. Hi Danny, sounds like you have the right one. the slots limit the total advance, weights and springs govern how fast eg. revs that the weights move out advancing the timing. Make sure all that is free moving etc. Do you have any pictures of it? I had issues with 3 280ZX electronic distributors that from idle if you gave the engine a quick short rev they would retard the timing by 10 and up to 15 or more degress. With parts near impossible to get, the magnet breaks in the if looked at the wrong way i think all added to my issues. I have since then built 2 different electronic distributors which work so much better and give a much more stable timing throughout the rev range. One having later Hitachi insides into the 280ZX distributor and the other using a Bluebird series 2 distributor with Bosch 6 cylinder insides. Both require quite a bit of work to modify but work much better then the 280ZX ones. Both are running close enough to 12 - 13 degress advance in the distributor so about the 25 degs at crank so at idle at 10 BTDC they will advance to 35 deg BTDC and so forth. Both even at 5000 - 6000 rpm the timing mark on the harmonic balancer is clear and stable with the timing light. I have also heard of someone using the insides out of a RB30 but i haven't looked into them as the two types i have done work very well anyway. Food for thought as there are other options in upgrading them. Cheers
  3. Well finished the sprocket and also made up a drilling guide as i have a couple to do. This will make adjusting cam timing a bit easier now.
  4. All good guys I have worked it out on my rotary table on my mill. I will end up with 8 settings 0, +4, +8, +10 (might change to +11), -3, -6, -9 and -12 Degree adjustments. The Optional Cam Sproket 13024-E4621 has the following: 0, +3, +6, +9, -3, -6, -9, -12 Degree adjustments. Hopefully it will give a bit more adjustment to allow for closer cam timing Justin
  5. Hello Everyone, Just wondering of anyone has the degree's of the holes in the 8 hole cam sprocket that gives you more choices for cam timing to make it a bit easier to know where to drill them as 0,4 and 8 deg's doesn't give too many options with the 3 original holes. Cheers, Justin
  6. Hi Angie, From what I have read they go as follows. So wouldn't f11 be worse? Basic range of Emulsion tubes is; LEAN: F14, F11, F15, F16, F9, F2, F5, F8, F7 :RICH Cheers, Justin

    45mm Weber chokes

    Hi guys just wondering if anyone has a set of chokes to suit 45mm webers for sale 34mm or 32mm set of 6. Cheers, Justin
  8. Hello, Im looking for a set of 6 Weber F2 emulsion tubes to either buy or possibly borrow to see if it fixes the issue of breaking down as they go from the primary to main circuit. In the Weber tuning book they are saying the F16 emulsion tubes are too lean. Cheers, Justin
  9. Oh do they go in under the guard like later model cars have?

  11. Any luck on these as I'd love some too or know where to get them.
  12. Just wondering if anyone knows where you can get the grommets in the back of the rear quarters under the bumper on the 260Z's Cheers, Justin
  13. I like the idea of sticking something like that to the inner guard as it's easier to replace when and if needed.
  14. Today I got a star in my paint on the top of my front left guard which looks like it's from a rock from the tyre. What have or does anyone use to prevent this from happening. Obviously newer cars have plastic inner guards which prevent this from happening. Cheers, Justin
