    ."There are two types of car enthusiasts: 1-those who have never heard of the red car 2-those who read the red car at an impressionable age and had their lives ruined by it. I, of course, am in the second group."

This vehicle, which has always resided in Florida is in excellent condition compared to other Datsun 240Z's which are often found rusted out. The owner bought this (nearly) rust-free car as a project destined for a performance build. Being mechanically inclined, the customer is going to be doing...

Afm Spring Adjustment - Bothersome Thoughts

Fuel Injection 22 Mar 2015
I haven't been able to really define what it is about adjusting the spring of the AFM that bothers me.  But I think I've narrowed to down to one thing - preload.     Preload affects when the vane starts to move due to air flow and should be an exact number, matched to the idle air...

'72 240Z Rebuild

Open S30 Z Discussions 06 Feb 2015
I'm about to tear this motor out and then apart.  It's kind of hard to do because it runs pretty good today but I can't trust a 43 year old motor's stamina, so here I go.   I think updating this thread with the progression of the build will save my butt from mistakes with the help of th...

Interior Yesterday, 08:08 PM
I was doing some interior panel work on my 73, and noticed 2 large threaded holes on each side between the hatch and quarter window. What were they used for?  They seem pretty far back to be used for a shoulder belt.  Were they left open as shown? Just curious....

Ngk Bpr6Es-11 Vs Bp6Es-11? Same Gap? Same Effect?

Carburetor Central Today, 06:45 AM
Is there any real difference between NGK BPR6ES-11 and BP6ES-11? My 240z has a petronix ignitor installed and sometimes gives me hassles with the current BP6ES which advertise as pre-gapped. Have called many retailers here in Panama and they only have either BP6ES or BPR6ES-11. They dont have BP6...

Is 3 In One Motor Oil (Blue Label) Any Good As Damper Oil?

Carburetor Central 28 Mar 2015
Just filled both of my Hitachi refurbished 3 screw SU Carbs with 3 in one  motor oil (Blue and White label). The Temperature here in Panama is 33 degrees Celsius, very hot indeed! The car is running okay, but at first gear sometimes hesitates back and forth. The idle was set to 1000 but does...

Seeking Some Advice About The Dash

Interior Yesterday, 06:12 AM
Yesterday, I removed the dash cap to see if I could start on a restoration, I've read the restoration threads and felt it was doable. Now for the kicker whoever put the full dash cap on(not me) used about 100 tubes of latex caulk to hold it in place and/or fill gaps, the result when taken off was...
