    Looking for a set of N27 Needles

    I'm looking for a set of N27 needles to replace my smogger N58's that I have in my 1972 roundtops. I have a set of SM needles from ZT, but I'm concerned that I'll be running too rich with my stock setup. Does anyone have a set they're looking to part with?

    Manual 5 Speed Trany ID

    Thread Starter: Healeyalt

    A couple of years ago I purchased a california 76 2+2 with a 5 speed trany. From what I've read, the 76 never came with a 5 speed so a previuos owner must have put one in from either a 240Z or a 280ZX. I'd like to know what year vehicle the trany came from, but I can't seem to find any numbers or...

    Thread Starter: Stanley

    I noticed that once the float is adjusted to near the factory setting, which makes the bowl about half full, any further adjustment will make it overflow. Make a very small change of the tang on the float, and there's a small change in fuel level. Make another small change there's a large change in...

    Nose High '72

    Thread Starter: jmorrison146

    The front of my 1972 240Z rides noticeably higher (3" or so) than the rear. New KYB struts are going on but shouldn't affect the ride height. Does anyone have experience with cutting a coil off the front springs to level things out?

    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...

    1975 C110 (KHGC110 240K) Build

    Thread Starter: Adzmax

    Hi everyone, I thought I'd share the build of my C110 coupé. A bit of a back story, I purchased a white coupé back in 2008 sight unseen (just pictures on eBay). While the car looked OK the listing wasn't completely truthful and the car was really rough and full of rust.

    280Z Full Restore in 5 months, hopefully.

    Figured I'd share this 280 build for anyone interested. I had a 240 build thread going on awhile ago, but that project has currently gone on hiatus and the cars sitting in my enclosed trailer in the back yard. It's going to require more work than I can give it right now. I found a good price...
