Yes mate really happy with the ZTherapy carbs, I'v e since run the engine in the car and they fired up immediately (still to post the update) . I used MSA's chrome engine bolt set on the engine rebuild, nice bit of bling

Engine bay is looking great, those carbs look the dogs. I had the rebuild kit and new jets from ZT. Did you get the whole thing done - it the butterfly mechanism replaced with their ball-bearing set up? The cause of my leaks I think ...

Hi All
I've just heard that my original steel wheels are ready for picking up following their refurb. I'm wanting to fit the standard size tyres to them. The fsm that I have says they were 175x14 but doesn't give the ratio. Can anyone advise what the original size tyres were?
Thanks Paul

175R14 standard fit on early 240Z is ratio of 80.

Hi, as a matter of interest what width are the wheels - it should be stamped on them?

4.5 or 5.0?

Hi Rob

They're 5", Were there different sizes for different years?

Cheers Paul

I think so and the 'market' they were sold in. A lot are 4.5.

With 5" I'd be tempted to go 195/70.

I have 195s on mine - US slots, and they look as thin as anything. And we all thought 195s were fat tyres years ago ... (well, I did)

Front Brakes/Suspension restoration

Thought I'd post up some pics of the front brakes and suspension. Basically I stripped everything, power coated the hardware, renewed all nuts n bolts and overhauled/renewed anything that would have had wear.
