Time for Work


I purchased the Z and on the way back it seemed to overheat and basically die on me.  So needless to say it was not long before the upgrades started to go on the car.  This was actually needed as the car was running poorly and overheated.  Here is the progress thus far…..

The A/C unit did not work and the reason was clear on two accounts.

Figured since I was at it would replace the filter pod

40yr old bolts can be troublesome at times

much more room with out the A/C kit.  Also quite a bit of weight savings.  This will be temporary as the heat in Texas can get unbearable.

Finally the bits get to go in.  I managed to source a Kameari Rad-Cap, Kameari thermostat (1.3 bar I think),  3 row radiator, and K&N S.U. filters

Finishing touches…

Well…it was a no go as the time it sat, change in filters, the humidity, etc. makes it die once turned over….so….back to square 1
