OHH god!!! update time!

Not so good news though. So may car broke down a month or so ago. It was a fuse that some how blew up. I chased the line and did not see any shorts or anything.



After I solved that problem I had a crazy AFR problem. I I really didn't know where to look or chase the problem down to fix that. I have turned lots and lots of wrenches on my car but I did not know where to start. With some "the370z" help, I got it fixed. The best part was it only cost me $8. It took a lot of time trouble shooting and frustration but we (my forum friends and I) got it done. It turned out to be bad seal between by turbo and exhaust pipe.

Now we fast forward to last night. OMG!! I though everything was great so I went ot the race track. F me!!! On my 5th or 6th run my car jacked up! On the burn out I heard a pop! The tech got me to back up so I did. Everything worked fine but SOMETHING was WRONG when the tech picked up a piece of metal from the floor. OMG!! I went around and asked one of the hard core racers if I could borrow there jack so I could investigate what happened. The horror!!



Can we say FAWK!!!

So I don't understand what and how it happened but My car hoped for some reason (It's has not hopped since i put poly bushings and drag radials). So anyhow, I got her towed home and I tore her apart today. I lowered the rear differential and shook my head. I'll let the pic do the talking. I don't know how it happened but it just snapped off.






My differentials looks ok. I gave it a good cleaning. nothing seems broken. I'm in search of a diff cover to slap her on, add 80-90 trans fluid inside her and reinstall her.

Ohh sometimes I just have to shake my head at my Z..

Wow.

Is that a NISMO cover?

The Z1 cover has a reinforced mounting boss for the stud... I always wondered why such a thing would be necessary. Now I guess I know.

It also increases fluid capacity =)

If you wanted to go cheaper - i have my OEM cover laying around.

This is not the OEM cover. This is the finned cover kit form Z1 I believe (you get the cover, Red-Line oil and RTV). I inspected the internals as best I could while turning and cleaning the inside. I cleaned the inside of the pumpkin as best as I could with water and dish soap (to emulsify the oil). I used lots and lots of rags to mop up the slurry. Once things look good I took the garden hose to her to rid of any residual water/soap then used compressed air to blow out all the water.

I lost my OEM cover somewhere. I dug around looking for it as my internals look darn good! I just need a cover finned or not. I just need a cover, lube, rtv and I'll be good to go. I'm seeing if I could find one locally. I'll send you a pm anyways.

PM Replied! I think that is the Nismo cover. Z1 sells the cover upgrade kit with either the Nismo cover or the Z1 cover....

Look like it J. It's busted somehow though. IDK what or how but it sucked!

Thanks to Jwick, Chuck and everyone else that helped me out or offered to.

I got a OEM cover from Chuck. She was tired looking so I cleaned her up with a wire wheel. I put some RTV on and finger tighten it to let it dry. I put her all back together and now she it back on the road.

That's what happens to the cover when you let the jelly filling out of that bushing.

no jelly in that poly bushings. This is the 2nd time I have dropped the rear diff. The first time I dropped her I changed the diff cover and the jelly filled bushings.

Long time no post, life been busy. Unfortunately I have decided to let me Z go. I will be reverting her back to OEM and selling her and the turbo kit. IF anyone in the Houston area interested in the BP kit, my Z or both, LMK. I will be starting to task of taking everything apart in a hour or so. Lucky I kept all my oem part. The only I just can't find my fuel injectors. I know I have them but I don't know where. If anyone has a set for cheap LMK.

Thank GBrett but the car is down and out as is. I have already started to dismantle her. The garage is a mess so i'm digging around for my tools and it's taking lot of time. So a good note to all, keep your tools in order so when you need them, you have them.
