  1. Just found this thread from 2011, and was looking to do this adjustment. I’ve run a ‘53 DE for a lot of years and now have a ‘58 HR with just 14,000 miles on it. It’s never had any adjustment work done on the clutch system so gives a good reference for factory set measurements. I found this Clutch Adjustment Specification guide showing the factory pedal height recommended range (171 -190mm). My pedal top currently measures 171mm (with no mat and pushing carpet flat to floor). Adjusting the pedal position down would therefore take it below the 171mm range m

  3. Please PM if you have one available. I know they are hens teeth, thanks!
  4. Ever the optimist!! Please PM if you have one available.
  5. Hi I'm looking for a 350Z Nismo Cat Back system, if anyone has one to sell. I know they rarely come up, but thought I'd ask. Thanks.
  6. Just made me laugh that the guy in the Nissan parts department clearly had a sense of humour when he speced these for the car during pre-sale prep!! I've still got another full set of Potenzas waiting to go on, so have a long, wet, slow, winter ahead ....but you can't blame a summer tyre for that!
  7. I've always stuck with the original fit Potenzas RE040's, and been happy with them on road & track (but I do back off in the wet!). However, I saw these Avon ZZ5's newly fitted to the rear of a Z on the forecourt of my local Nissan Main Dealer; Potenzas RE050's on the front. No experience of this AVON tyre, but with a 'Z' on every tread block round the side wall (see attached pic) it has to be the most stylish budget alternative to Bridgestone for a Z-car.... ....not that you should buy tyres on style!! Anyone tried them?
  8. These look great! Has anyone tried fitting these JDM Clear Reflectors to 2003-2005 cars? I know they have slightly different fixings - can they me modified to fit? Anyone doing these LED versions?
  9. I don't really know much about motors, so this may be a completely stupid question, but does anyone know if this problem occurs more on windows which aren't used much? I use my windows very infrequently (relying on air con in the summer) so the motor is only moving it up-&-down a fraction every time the door opens/closes. Would it be better for the motor to be fully cycled (window fully up-&-down) more frequently?
  10. I've done a few of the IAM's Road Driver Training Skills days - at various race tracks. You get 1-to-1 in-car coaching from either an Emergency Services CAT 1 Driver or a Racing Driver. Really well organised, plenty of space and time on the track, and no 'Looney Tunes' so you know you'll be driving your Z home in one piece. The last one I did earlier this year was at Silverstone, Stowe Circuit, and they got instructors over from the Porsche Experience to coach us. With this quality of coaching you really explore the limits of both your car and yourself in a safe environment. Not a "cheap"
  11. Having lived with the intermittent problem for 12 months, the window motor finally stopped working totally, forcing me to do something. The reciept from the previous owner from West Way Nissan Aldershot had scared me off doing anything before: 21/10/2008, Mileage 24,808 - N8731CD001 Motor Assy Regu £341.38 - N28891CD706 Blade Assy-wind £ 29.78 - N28890AL515 Blade Assy-wind £ 13.27 - N288900X800 Blade Assi-wind £ 5.65 - Fitting £ 74.00 ======
  12. 25nM It's a pretty straightforward job, useful how to guide on here somewhere.
  13. That's great, thanks for your help on that, appreciated!
  14. Thanks Steve, I'll check-out the guide. Would the brushes have worn so quickly, a new motor was fitted in October '08 and it's not had excessive use.
