    [2014] What did you do to/with your Z today?

    Thread Starter: Arne

    Rather than let these threads go on forever as they do in some other forums, I thought I'd start new ones for separate generations for the New Year. Use these threads for short, Twitter-like posts, things that may not be worth their own thread. Since only the S30 threads got any use over the...

Really simple...Clean out your garage with a part that you thought about selling, but considering its relative worth it's just better...

    Just ordered my Rebello 3.0, now what

    Thread Starter: Kurbycar32

    I placed the order for a Rebello 3.0 so at some point a mostly complete motor will be brought home to swap into my running car. I have done motor swaps on other vehicles but I am not a professional mechanic, what could I be forgetting? Heres my current list in no particular order: Have...

    Off to ontario!

    Thread Starter: northernz

    Hey all, I am starting a thread to document the restoration of my blue on blue '71. I have driven the car for 4 years now, and have finally accepted that I lack the time and heated space and, let's face it, the skill and determination to do the work myself! I have always admired the work done by...

    Sold on LEDs

    Thread Starter: SteveJ

    I took the plunge and purchased LEDs to replace the exterior lights, except for the plate lights. So far I replaced all but the lights under the bumper. I'll probably get to those this weekend. I did check the current flow with the LEDs, and it is now 2.6A. I didn't measure the current before the...

    Looking for tips on how to approach getting to the heater core on my '72 Z

    Thread Starter: Coastalman

    My 1972 Z has the dealer installed AC. I know I can just start taking things apart, but if any of the forum members have some helpful tips on how to approach this I would be most thankful. I know I have a leak, but, at this time, don't know if it is the core or one of the hoses. As far as I...

    Can digital multi meter function as a tachometer?

    Thread Starter: JR Ohio

    Well, the dwell/tach that I bought in 1969 finally died! They just don't build them like they used to, or wait a minute - they did build them pretty good back then. I used the dwell very seldom since adding the Pertronix to my '72 240Z. But I did use the tach function often when tuning carbs...

    Thread Starter: grannyknot

    I have a 1987 M6 that I have dumped thousand$ into but there is no market for them at the moment so instead of selling it for 30 cents on the dollar I was thinking about keeping the freshly restored S38 (inline six 24 valve, dohc) engine an 5spd and part the rest the car out. I've done the...
