    Help with MSA / Zstore order - pay by wire transfer?

    "your order is set to ship once the items are in our inventory".....sounds like they are missing some of the items from inventory?? As I have already agreed to, send me the money and I will place the order......I'm a frequent flyer at MSA.

    280z Cranks but won't start

    So i learned from my mechanic last year that the AFM has a breaker point type switch in it which activates the electric fuel pump.....a couple of taps on the AFM with the end of a screwdriver handle did the trick on more than one occasion with your car Ben. The other area is a box under the...

    Also found that very early horns were painted a drab olive green and a change was made to black at some point.

    S30 Horn Date Codes

    So, today I opened some of the parts bins that I have for various years of S30 cars and located several S30 horns. I was able to locate the date codes stamped on the back of the horn body but am having a hard time figuring out what the date codes actually mean in years. Did a little research on...

    280z project

    I would not disregard the standard brakes on the 280z and run to the big name brake people out there. I have a 240 with triple carbs, head work, and exhaust with R888 sticky tires and I ran factory brakes components on the track with very good results....over 110MPH on the straight so it was no...

    Runs bad since oil change

    Still sounds like main jet sticking on one of the will run better with the choke on......just double check. Check brake booster to see if it failed and is drawing air into the system.....just plug the vacuum hose to brake booster to confirm

    Runs bad since oil change

    At the bottom of each carb is the main jet which fattens up when the choke is pulled.....sometimes they will stick like the choke is still set, shouldn't on a newer carb but you never know. With the choke off, reach under each carb and push up on the main jet to make sure it has returned up...

    Registering 240z import

    All of the cars I have sent over to the UK, all of them have titles. I have had to apply for titles many times and every time the vehicle had to be inspected by police or qualified DMV person. Meaning the car has to be personally inspected while still in the US. Many times the US owner can...

    10k auto 280z on ebay

    I agree with Dan about the costs..... In the states a decent 5 speed from a Z car or 240sx is about $500 on the cheap and even then I would have someone go through it......I have been there having to remove a new to me 5 speed that had a loud whine. All the parts for a change over to manual...

    Early 1972 240Z with a Cali punt in 1992

    After the center console was installed I found that the radio would turn on however I could not get any sound out of the speaker in the hatch. I removed the side marker light in the rear as I had to replace the bulb and I found that I could access the speaker wires from that spot.....bummer I...
