Project Boondoggle (or, so I went and bought a Z!)

Open S30 Z Discussions 22 Apr 2015
I've been lurking here and some of the other Z boards for a while, and after wanting a project car for basically my entire life, I finally pulled the trigger a couple weeks back so I guess it's time to join; hope y'all have room for one more!   So here it is, my new 1978 Z, as it looked when...

I open myself for you criticism!

Open S30 Z Discussions 13 Oct 2013
Hi all! I have been underground for a while working on my '76 280z. I decided to hold off posting until I had something worth showing. My 280z was a bit of a whore in a prom dress. As I disassembled it and mounted it in the rotisserie it became obvious that I had a bit of a basket case...

Engine and Drivetrain Yesterday, 07:19 AM
I noticed today that MSA has begin to offer refurbished differential hanger brackets on an exchange basis.  In their write-up on these new parts, they discuss applications in relation to solving the differential 'clunk' problem and emphasize that Series 1 owners will need to install the Seri...

Intake Manifold Swap

Triple Mikuni and Webers 06 Nov 2015
I have been fighting with the throttle cable on my Triple Webers for years.  Just never had that perfect OEM feeling the push pull rods gave me (after they were rebuild and in perfect condition mind you)    So Mike W. was kind enough to put me onto the Harada manifold.  This t...

Where's that thread with 280Z CAD model ?

Open S30 Z Discussions 27 Nov 2015
The one by a member in Russia. Has a nifty super-detailed model. Spent an hour looking here and on google, can't find it anywhere.   Bought me a new CAD, Viacad pro, got 30% off for BF. Probably not good enough to open the model he posted, but worth a try. Want to try to CAD some freaky head...

'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...

Pass/flash button on indicator stalk

Open S30 Z Discussions 27 Nov 2015
I've just noticed that my 72 Z hasn't got a button on the end of the indicator/turn signal stalk to flash the headlamps, my old UK car had one and so did all my friends cars over here, my question is should it have one or didn't the USA cars have this feature? Thanks in advance :-)

Need help sourcing parts

Fuel Injection 27 Nov 2015
Hey everyone   I am having some very real issues finding an afm for my 78 280z. After an exhaustive search, I have the Nissan OEM part number (22680-N4213) finally narrowed down, but finding a replacement for less than $475 is not working. Sadly, most pick n pull places in the Denver area do...

Electrical 27 Nov 2015
Anyone knows of any generic idle stop solenoid that can be used to boost the RPMS when the compressor of the Air Conditioner is activated? I sent an e-mail to carb junkies but they told me their parts will not work with a Datsun 240z! Anyone?

Wood gear shift knob

Open S30 Z Discussions 26 Nov 2015
I have owned a '72 and a '73.  Both had wood gearshift knobs.  I have seen factory '71s and '72's that didn't and I have seen them that did. I don't think I have ever seen a '73 without a wood knob. Mine does not have a wood gear shift knob but I believe it is factory.  Does...
