Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Good work DJ, I seem to recall Brock having one of those manifolds with a broken stud and it was absolutely diabolical trying to get it out. Going to delete the EGR also? Looks like you're putting some good work in! Yeah I was expecting it to be a lot harder than it turned out to be, I thought abou...

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

I've been looking for a gearbox for this for a while and just bought a complete VQ35DE and 6 speed box out of a 350Z, off to Queenstown with James this weekend to collect it. The gearbox has a dicky synchro which is pretty common, parts aren't too expensive for them, but if I can sell the engine the...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

I should have looked at the exhaust manifold before I put the engine in, it didn't have down pipe on it when I took it out of the donor car, turns one of the studs was stripped. I bought another L20E for the dizzy and a couple of other bits, I was hoping the exhaust manifold was going to be good but...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Got one of the few parts remaining on this, some genuine Nissan rubber radius rod bushes. The bush kit that I bought came with some but they were basically solid plastic and I didn't want to use them, these should last another 10 or 20 years.

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Not sure if I mentioned but one of the issues with the clutch was the stopper was gone which I hadn't realised, so I borrowed one from the VK car, but I've bought a bunch of new ones nows. Also got some new wiper nut covers. https://i.imgur.com/nlbjPNh.jpg https://i.imgur.com/CDuLUGP.jpg

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Took this for a test drive a couple of weekends ago, all went well apart from I've done something to the speedo so I need to sort that out. Haven't done too much else, I've been working heaps, we had our car out at Skope doing demo laps with Greg Murphy driving, managed to unofficially break the lap...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Haven't done much on this since before Christmas, I'm going to take it for a drive tomorrow so I thought I'd better finish up the wiring that I'd started and make sure it still went. Got it 99% there, just need to run a new wire for the speedo output from the gearbox which I can't do with the car in...
