I just bought a 83 zx with 106k miles on it. I was wonder about a couple of things. It doesn't appear in the records that the timechain has been changed (should i change the timechain and sprocket?) If not, at how many miles. What about the transmission gear and rear end oil(5spd).(What type and brand?)
Has anyone use other than the standard gear oil and got better results. What type of sparkplugs ,air filter, engine oil ?

I also have an 83 ZXT, my mechanic (Z mech for over 20 years) said I shouldn't worry about changing the chain or the sprocket. for sparkplugs he uses stock NGK's airfilter I use the K&N (never have to replace) and oil I use Castrol GTX but if you change the oil at 2500 it really doesn't matter good luck
