Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Drilled out the flange that I found to take 8mm bolts and fitted it to the block, looks like it's going to work pretty well. Need to get some -10 fittings to make up a hose. https://i.imgur.com/hkF1NEj.jpg The list of stuff to do is getting pretty short now, mostly stuff I can't do without having th...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Made up some quick adaptor mounts for the dyno rig after work tonight, Zac thinks I'll need to gusset them so I'll do that next week.

The cert plates are done in Wellington, it usually takes up to 2 weeks. Unless it's changed recently.

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

Now if I could just liberate one of these from work I'd be 90% there.

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

I've been mucking around with some modelling of the VK45 manifold flanges, thought I'd see how an adaptor to the RB26 throttles would work, this is at 20mm thick, I don't think the transition is too bad, I could probably go a little bit taller, maybe 25mm. I think with an adaptor like that, the thro...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Didn't manage to get to work on Sunday but I took a bunch of bits down on Monday. Used my new Mitutoyo protractor thing to figure out what I need to do the dyno engine mounts, one side is at about 44 degrees from the flange on the RB mount to the dyno mount stud and the other is at about 46 so I'll ...

Re: LS1 V8 280z

Good job on the short list. Your master cylinder might be too small as well, you're running 4 pots on the front now?

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Got my junk block mounted into the dyno engine stand today, I haven't got any engine mounts at work so I'll bring some down on Sunday and get it properly mounted. The RBs sit on quite an angle, the bottom two holes in the black plate are parallel with the ground. https://i.imgur.com/ZEeySLd.jpg http...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Fascinating stuff there, is that multi-rib belt pulley you're cutting there? If so would you have the details of it handy - I've been thinking about having a go at making some one day. Yup it is, it's made using the insert in the background which is just a single vee insert so you can make them for...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Here's the new bonnet catches compared to the old ones, something in between would be perfect but I don't think they make them.
