    I want a Z

    finally getting around to hanging my N36 intakes ran into a little problem tho, the spacers are a little too thick, and i really don't want to pull the studs and replace them, so I'm gonna go make a slightly thinner spacer.

    I want a Z

    4 weeks, carbs came in on Friday. This made for a painfully long day at work. Got home and stripped my old carbs off before bed. Bright and early in the morning I was out working on my car in my pajamas, coffee cup in hand. There was something very therapeutic about that. New carbs on Spent most of the day tweeting and adjusting the idle mix and timing to just where I like it. Dug out the colortune and unisyn. Played with the timing light for a while before I threw it back in the toolbox and set my timing the old fashioned way. Wend out on a deserted desert road and advanced it till it pinged and slowly backed it off till it wouldn't ping under a hard WOT run. I'm not used to actually having to use the choke. Before it was so rich at all times I didn't need it. I'm down to my last gripe to tune out of the carbs. It accelerates up to 3k rpm like I'm pulling a boat. I think the ATF in the dashpots is too thin and I need to find some 20wt oil.

    scored a set of N36 intakes yesterday. those should go nicely with my new carbs (if they ever get here) took em to work and started breaking them down and cleaning them up. start the port and polish process. rusty and crusty goodness the coolant line is seized inlace. the nuts started stripping off, so.... out comes the cutting wheel cut the tubes off the fittings, ill soak the fittings with penetriant and give them a go tomorrow into the media blaster... boogers inside rotary carbide file on a pencil grinder knocks the boogers down some 80 grit, 150 grit, and scotchbrite love later...

    Virgin galactic gets all the press, but xcor aerospace is gonna be the big player in the space game.

    How do you Insure your datsun?

    Can't it be both?
  13. I was rummaging around my insurance policy website and decided I better up the coverage on my 240z. I wanted to add comp and collision to it after a near miss by an asshole running a light in mojave, and someone backing into my front bumper and fucking it up. I set the changes and it's asking me for the "stated value" of my car. This got me a little spooked. If I go by the SoCal going rate (according to craigslist at least) value of a car similar to mine (badass) is gonna jack my insurance way the hell up, vs the kbb or bluebook value which would total the car out if someone crosses their eyes and stares at it wrong. I daily drive my car as all datsuns should be, so I don't think classic car coverage will work since I'll exceed the miles limit. How do you guys go about it?

    Holy crap - the car.

    you got a good start going. you'll love your 240 when u finally get it dialed in. you'll probably hate it until then tho! id suggest getting out and meeting al the datsun ppl u can. go for a few rides in already done Z cars to keep you pumped.
