Z-Man's Tech Tips

Many of you have e-mailed me asking all sorts of questions, maybe this will be able to help you.

One Wiper Configuration:
  1. Remove The Driver's Side Wiper Arm. It Is Only Held Down By A Nut.
  2. Loosen The Bolt On Passenger Side Wiper.
  3. Aim It 1/4 On The Windshield.
  4. Tighten Nut.
  5. You Might Have To Play With It A Bit, To Get It Just Right.
  6. The Best Size Wiper Is The Stock One.

Air Filter:
  1. Remove Stock Air Box.
  2. Keep Fresh Air Duct. (It Does No Harm.)
  3. The Hose That Is Connected To The Bottom Of The Air Box, Do Not Plug It Or Leave It Free. It Needs Filtered Air So Just Make A Small Filter And It Will Be Fine.
  4. Attach New Filter, Tighten With A Hose Clamp.
  5. Make A Bracket, The Filter Needs Support.
  6. Even Though The Engine Is Hot, The Air Temp. Going Into The Engine Is Not As Hot As Everyone Thinks. You Can Make A Cold Air Duct, Chances Are It Will Not Harm Anything.

Advancing Timing:
  • Don't Even Bother, The Car's ECU Will Correct The Timing Anyway.

Misfiring Cylinder?:
  • Spray Some Water On Header Tube. If You Do Have A Problem, The Cylinder With A Problem Will Evaporate Slower.

Tight Wheel Studs?:
  • Everytime You Take Your Wheels Off Spray Some WD-40, Trust Me It Will Help In The Long Run.

Headliner Wrinkles:
  • Use A Hair Dryer. Most Of The Time This Will Take The Wrinkles Out.

Battery Post:
  • Put A Penny At Each Battery Post. The Penny Will Collect The Corrosion Not The Posts.

Keep Your Old Parts:
  • Keep All The Parts You Can. If You Are Lowering Your Car Keep The Old Springs Etc.
