    The Z is still running but the motor has a shim and bucket noise (tappets).

    This Z is in great condition ready for a new owner to put another engine in it.

    With the price of import vg30dett motors at the moment this can be done at a reasonable price.

    Zed has always been well maintained, since I purchased it locally in 2006.

    Hey is this just the lifters, bucket shims or does it have a bearing/piston slap noise? as 7.5k for a zed that needs a new engine is a fairly hefty price.

    Hi there...

    I have been told that is shim and bucket noise...

    So I have priced the Z with the motor replacement in mind...

    The easiest fix would be fitting another vg30dett into it...

    For a buyer who can fit a motor themselves, great value can be saved or the purchaser can have a vg30dett suppied & install will have a great running car with lots of mods for approx 10k...

    With local import wreckers supplying and installing engines for approx $2500-$2800 this seems very feeable.

    The old saying "You get what you pay for"

    Hope it doesn't come to the fun of parting it :)
    Please no parts enquires at this stage.

    Thankyou for you interest :thumbup:

    For starters the VG30DETT has hydraulic lifters but no shims.
    Secondly, unless the lifters are completely shagged, some people run regular oil changes with a high detergent oil, which is definately an easier fix than 'fitting another [engine] into it'.
    Thirdly, worst case scenario is new or reeco'd lifters which is a timing belt off and plenum off job... so not *that* bad a fix.
    Fourthly, put your price up bro ;)

    God im so tempted! Just a pity its an auto.. It is drivable yeah? Just thinking of the car transport companies.

    Hey there,

    Yes it is a bit noisy but is still drivable for transport, that is why I am happy to help interstate buyers as I did with the Forged Motor and other parts I have sold.

    Could be the perfect time with motor out to do a manual conversion aswell...

    I was thinking along those lines :D Ill let you know once i get some shipping quotes and other stuff sorted :cool:

    Didn't mean to say car wasn't in good order as you have the best colour and interior combo the 300zx's have, just to be clearer in what is wrong with the car engine wise hydraulic lifters or more serious, does the noise go away when warm only on startup or constantly there?

  9. 23BIGA

    23BIGA Still CruZin' +Parts4Sale

    Unfortunately the noise doesn't go away once warm...

    Once these motor's get on in km's, it is more the option to either replace or rebuild.

    Either way, a jap import tt engine is $1500 from kyp.

    After fitting etc, still be sub $10k if u fit urself. :)

    any chance you can get some compression results? this would certainly help in confirming the whereabouts of the noises.

    23BIGA Still CruZin' +Parts4Sale

    Sorry mate I'm not a mechanic...
    Compression by memory wasn't fantastic a year or so ago.. Like many..
    That is why the Zed is being sold, priced as is with motor replacement in mind...

    :thumbup: They actually have a motor at the moment with hks turbo's.
