  1. Beautiful 240 ! Orange really fits Datsun !
  2. And some more S30 racing pictures here:
  3. Was at classic cars and aeroplanes sunday, they had a race demo with some old zeds...
  4. Way more than 15k... can tell you that
  5. Manual says: Use Mobil SAE 10w30 for damper oil, do not use SAE 30 or higher weight oils
  6. Personally I don't see the problem in the ball joints ( after all I am still using the old " worn out " ones ), or the entire linkage, but just with the carbs. Mine where done by Ztherapy, so not sure what they did ? Found this on their website: Reman Carb Body 69-72 ½ 240Z 3 or 4 Screw w/ZT Roller Shafts (pair) . But there's no friction in the linkage ever since, and the gas pedal goes so's better than a new car. ( I have to note it is sensitive on bumpy roads, but I anticipate on that by backing my foot off) So I guess the shafts in both carbs ( Original state ) cause to much friction in the whole linkage.. ?
  7. it should be plug and play...
  8. Here the one from JRPurcell and found this one to:
  9. That 70's haircut though
  10. Hey Mart, That ZX is going to be a beauty ! I'm curious after the end result... Nice work from the body shop . About the hinge seal, that's a good one, need to do some information digging on the internet here.., I wouldn't have a clue either. You have alot of books and manuals, doesn't one of them say anything about a seal there ?
  11. The S30 432(R) and the S20 Prince engine are surely unique in the sense of historical value and collector items.
  12. Interesting, this seems to be a complaint with many s30 owners. And the " sticky " throttle. Once I had my rebuild carbs back, the issue was no longer there, so I think alot of problems are in the butterfly shafts, because they actually wear in " oval " , the pedal action is not smooth anymore
  13. Just use BP6ES, I don't see R plugs necessary it's not a modern car. Heck I even use B6ES ( cheapest ones ) on my 240Z and they do the job just fine. Going hotter is not the solution to existing engine problems.. if the plug is fooling it's either oil, or to much fuel, or in extreme cases the head gasket is leaking and fooling the plug.
  14. Good luck on the restoration ! It's amazing these low VIN cars still keep popping up... I noticed the speedo starts @ 20 mph, didn't the early speedo start at 0 ? Or was it the other way around haha.
