@  Solo Stratus : (30 October 2014 - 08:10 PM) Just checking out the sphere, first time in a couple months ;)
@  Solo Stratus : (30 October 2014 - 08:08 PM) Not sure if Stratuscaster has any ideas to kick around yet, but thought would put it out there
@  Solo Stratus : (30 October 2014 - 08:06 PM) This is in response to the Meet threat. I know its a way off until next summer, but
@  Solo Stratus : (30 October 2014 - 08:06 PM) anyone interested in a Michigan Meet
@  Solo Stratus : (30 October 2014 - 08:05 PM) polstar
@  Dylan214 : (28 October 2014 - 10:01 AM) all data?
@  Dylan214 : (28 October 2014 - 09:58 AM) Who is the guy that needs the heater core replacement?
@  KennyL : (28 October 2014 - 09:04 AM) Ah, the Geo Storm. There's a beast. Heh. Excellent economy cars, in all seriousness. And very reliable and cheap to work on. Just don't attempt to pass anyone. :)
@  Dylan214 : (28 October 2014 - 08:40 AM) lol
@  Stratuscaster : (28 October 2014 - 08:34 AM) 350Z ride is too damn harsh. Rode like my old Geo Storm, which rode like a go-kart.
@  theronz : (28 October 2014 - 04:49 AM) yes kenny, an even 1" drop all around. anything more involves camber issuues($$$)
@  theronz : (28 October 2014 - 04:36 AM) its ok, most chrysler owners feel that same way. but bitches love a fast, LUXURY car duh.
@  99ninjabreeze : (27 October 2014 - 01:48 PM) maaaan I'd pick a 350z over a G any day!!! lol
@  KennyL : (27 October 2014 - 03:40 AM) I imagine the G35 ones are more for ride than handling, since it's the "lux" brand.
@  KennyL : (27 October 2014 - 03:40 AM) Cheap modification for a little lower and more sporty, I'm assuming?
@  theronz : (26 October 2014 - 07:52 PM) i just now swapped 350z springs into my g35 yayyyy
@  theronz : (26 October 2014 - 07:46 PM) you got it

My A/C compressor left a big puddle of bright green dyed oil under it, so I think it's probably done for. I assume that it'll be fine if I disconnect the clutch so it can't engage (in case it tries to seize up), but just in case, I'd like to have a belt handy to bypass it.

Anybody know the length I need offhand? I don't want to dig around in there if I can help it. I have enough other stuff to do.

Another quick method to prevent unwanted clutch engagement is to pull the fuse/relay etc (not sure which it is) in the under hood compartment.

I know the measurement of the belt is in the part number. I want to say its in centimeters. I want to say its the last few digits in the part number. You can use some string and measure it, and then see if the parts store has a belt around that number via part number. That's how I did it when I installed my UDP and ODP.

Millimeters actually... well, who knows though with different brands.

No problem. I'm just trying to help him out. Thanks for the correction. I wasn't sure. I'm definitely missing my stratus...I need to get it running again. I have to sell my turbo set up first however. I'm just going to go with a 10.5 bottom end and big cams.
