    My Datsun 240Z

    Thread Starter: bartsscooterservice

    Hello, My name is Bart, and I've been on this forum before in the past, when I had a 73 240Z. That project never made it to much rust, and I sold it for parts. It's been quiet for a while,and personally I kept thinking of owning another 240Z in the future, but good ones are expensive here in The...

    Dash Repair Process/Pictures

    Thread Starter: BD240Z

    The dashboard in my car had some serious cracks along the top but I couldn't pull the trigger to send it off for rework because of the cost. I wanted to try to repair it somehow though, I had to try something! Here's a few pictures of the cracks. Because of the limit on pictures in each...

    240z fuel and brake line insulator sets and steering rack expansion reservoir

    Thread Starter: nix240z

    Each 240z fuel and brake line insulator was reproduced in a urethane plastic on a milling machine, which made for a very high quality master insulator. Each insulator is then cast in a two part high quality silicone mold. The insulators are cast in a urethane rubber with a shore hardness of...

    [2014] What did you do to/with your Z today?

    Thread Starter: Arne

    Rather than let these threads go on forever as they do in some other forums, I thought I'd start new ones for separate generations for the New Year. Use these threads for short, Twitter-like posts, things that may not be worth their own thread. Since only the S30 threads got any use over the...

    SK racing carbs

    Thread Starter: Reverend

    I just purchased a fairly cheap set of SK Racing (not oer) carbs with 62mm horns. They look good and are all intact. My first idea was to put them to my Z but i need money now more than ever...I wonder what these are worth? Not many around and Made In Japan. That should say something about the...

    Hot-start issue with EFI - who has it, who doesn't

    Thread Starter: Zed Head

    Many people have reported having the typical 280Z EFI hot-start problem, where after ~10-20 minutes after shut-down (hot engine), the engine starts but runs very rough for what seems like 5 minutes but is actually about 30-40 seconds. Some people with EFI though, report that they don't have the...

    Camshaft Oil Spray Bar Redesign and Rebuild

    Thread Starter: Captain Obvious

    I pulled my valve cover to adjust my valves and discovered that my oil spray bar was in bad shape. The distribution blocks were bent a little and weren't sealing against the cam journals and the short tubes at front and rear were no longer parallel to the cam. Did a little searching and discovered...

    Help! Cold start valve has no place to connect to fuel rail

    Thread Starter: ntownsen

    OK has anyone else seen this? I bought a 77 280z that someone had already started a rebuild so I have no reference on how things 'used to be'. I'm starting reassembly and can't figure out how the cold start valve attaches to the fuel rail. This fuel rail is solid piping except where the...

    280z Door Lock Elbow

    Thread Starter: S30Driver

    My driver side door lock has been getting progressively worse at unlocking the door over the past 6 months, so I decided to try the "coat hanger elbow modification." About 1 in every 3 times I had to get in and unlock the door from the rear hatch. Seemed to happen mostly if it was colder outside...

    DIY Bumper Guard Strips?

    Thread Starter: Hardway

    I actually have a pair of NOS bumper guard strips for my 240z. However I am hesitant to use them since the last pair that sold on Ebay went for $250 and the left side has been NLA from Nissan for sometime. Since I have a mint pair I would like to use them as a pattern to make some more. Has...

    Almost a poll? How many of you check the classifieds routinely?

    Thread Starter: zKars

    I can't help but admit this is a bit self serving, but how many of you routinely check the datsunclassifieds for parts your are looking for? I tend not to post parts for sale here, but just did post one over 'there' and wonder how active sales are? I will not post a link to the ad in an effort...
