Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

Took the sump off the VK today and it looks like it's doable, I think I'm going to have to make a sump flange about 25 or 30mm thick and put two ports in it that run out the front or side for a remote filter mount. The engine itself looks pretty clean on the inside which is good, https://i.imgur.com...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

For some reason the fan on temp was set at 92 in the computer, I might have either forgotten to adjust it or I thought it was an 88 degree thermostat which it's not, I've lowered it to 85 and went for a big cruise with James to go look at a Z31 parts car and it sat pretty much on half way on the gau...

I've seen a really tidy 180B coupe in Waiau a couple of times recently.

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Got a warrant for this yesterday thanks to Damon, tail lights were doing some weird things which I need to look at, other than that and Damon noticing an oil leak from the turbo oil drain it's all good. It's running pretty hot and actually stopped on the way home, the ECU has some protection stuff i...

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

Not very exciting but I got the new non hydraulic fan water pump for this thing from eBay.

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Had an idea that it might be the other bonnet spring that's making the bonnet do odd things so I popped it off tonight and now the bonnet sits flat. Only problem is now there's nothing to hold the bonnet up, there's no provisions for the factory bonnet stay mount, I'll talk to the composites guys at...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Took the bonnet back off today, ground around the hinges a bit more, it wasn't sitting flat on the left hand hinge, it seems a bit better now. Borrowed a mouse sander thing from one of the guys at work and sanded down where I wanted to put the heat shielding, not really sure if it was necessary or n...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Haven't done too much on this over the last week or two, I bought a new windscreen washer pump from Aliexpress for the new tank once I actually get around to making it, might just warrant it with the old tank for now. Also bought some DEI Reflectagold heat shielding for under the bonnet, I wasn't to...
