Doin’ Work

For some reason I woke up at 7 in the morning on Sunday. Couldn’t go back to sleep so I decided to do some work on the Z. Drove over to my dad’s workplace so I could use his tools (instead of my dinky little jack) and proceeded to raise the car to a more drivable height. While I was at it, I swapped my crappy “OH S**T I NEED TIRES FOR HELLAFLUSH THE DAY BEFORE THE SHOW!!!” Nexxen tires for a set of taller and wider Falken Ziex’s that I had sitting on the side. All together about an inch and a half of ride height was gained, so I kicked my mom’s car out of the garage at my parent’s house and opened up a parking space at my apartment (I smell a parking space for a 510 wagon!). ‘Twas pretty interesting trying to get up the driveway without ripping off the front apron…

Next on my agenda for the Z is general maintenance as I’ve been starting to get a pretty nasty valve tap. Researching online about valve jobs, I came across this:

An article from Popular Mechanics, January 1973, with someone asking about doing a valve adjustment on his 240Z. Pretty cool what’s floating around on the internet…
