Re: DJZ's 280ZX

After driving this around a few times it seems to be making a bit of a noise from the right rear that stops when you apply the brakes even just a little, I was hoping it was going to be something easy to find but I jacked it up on Sunday and ran it with the wheels off the ground and no noise. The br...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Sorted out the brake booster hosing on the weekend, it's a bit ugly but it works, I'll tidy it up when I put the idle control on. Took it out for a test drive and to put some petrol on it, the power steering works well and the brakes work fine. The only problem was that I lost one of the bonnet catc...

What? Shit service from Blacks? What's the world coming to.

Use the factory stuff wherever you can.

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Made the power steering line the other day, was a bit of a pain but I got there in the end. Accidentally left the power steering pump adjuster and belt at work so I haven't tested that it actually works, but I'll do that later on today. Just have to sort out the brake booster line which I'll try and...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Ordered the bits to redo the power steering high pressure line, I got proper Speedflow stuff, was pretty spendy but probably about the same as getting a new rubber line crimped. Should be here tomorrow. I've been trying to think of a good place to mount the air fuel ratio gauge and haven't really co...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Took the engine back out of this today, still haven't 100% decided on what to do with the car. The sump doesn't fit around the rack mounts so I either need to make a new one or modify the steel one that's on there. I think I'll make up another set of mounts the same as what's in the black car and tr...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Spent heaps of today sorting out the exhaust, I ran out of time to look at redoing some of it in stainless so will look at it next time. It took a lot longer than I thought it was going to but it's sorted for now. Put the bonnet back on and found out it was hitting on the radiator outlet so ground o...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Some photos from the last couple of days. In the big shed at work. https://i.imgur.com/SSBhBgU.jpg New flywheel on, this was the slightly lighter Japanese one. https://i.imgur.com/nwsBsaz.jpg Clutch back on - it actually feels slightly better now than it did on the old flywheel, not sure why. https:...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Got it 95% back together yesterday, still need to finish the exhaust and wastegate piping and put the bonnet back on and get it to fit properly.
