    1970 240Z numbers matching & original, 1971 240Z L28ET Widebody
  1. Rebuilding The Nikki Fuel Pump

    I'm interested in the answer to this as well. Anyone break down a Atsugi pump to verify the style?
  2. AdreView

  3. 71 240Z @ CA. Estate Sale

    Comes with a model kit too!
  4. Need some invice on my 78 280z..

    Thanks for the update, I'll have a look in your other thread.
  5. Need some invice on my 78 280z..

    Did either one of you guys figure out this cold starting/sitting for a few days issue?
  6. My Datsun 280Z "Rustoration"

    So clean! What brand/type of black colored coating are you using on the lines, brake components, etc.?
  7. My Datsun 280Z "Rustoration"

    Interesting, even on their website they post pics of the kit with mismatched hardware: Front Big Brake Kit (stage 3) - Brake Upgrades - Datsun 240z - Datsun
  8. My Datsun 280Z "Rustoration"

    I see you retained the original sound deadening around the transmission hump, are you planning to remove this or just keep it as its a rare rust area? Did you have any rust issues or worn out wire harness ties that run above and along the engine bay frame rails? If so, how did you repair/replace these? I know its not going to be seen or affect anything, but I see Silvermine sold you a pair of brake calipers with mismatching hardware, is this normal for them? You've accomplished a great deal in a short time, keep the updates coming!
  9. Tuning 40 DCOE Weber 151 on an L24

    Oh, there she is. Thanks for the link. So I'm new to the tuning of Weber carbs, actually just bought a set of triple 40 dcoe with Cannon manifold. I just happened to catch a episode of Wheeler Dealers where they tuned a carb'd Lambo with this at idle to match airflow: Air Flow Meter Synchrometer - Dune Buggy Parts, Sandrail Parts, VW Parts - MooreParts.com Has anyone used this unit or similar?
  10. Tuning 40 DCOE Weber 151 on an L24

    Where are you sourcing (for purchase) the Keith Frank optical float gauge?
  11. For a stock '78 280Z 2+2 I'm looking for the approximate length of the front/rear compressed strut/spring combo under normal static load from the top of the upper strut mount to the weld on the lowest portion of the strut where it meets the knuckle. Does anyone have this measurement?
  12. Picked up some vintage wheels for cruising, the only info I have is they say PRO WHEEL on the inside and they are stamped 14x7, no center caps included. Maybe a Cragar, Centerline...any guesses? I measured offset to be a +6, going to fit them up and see what tire size I can get away with. Seller said they came off a 240Z, as the 2+2 is a bit wider in the rear compared to a coupe, I may not see any potential rubbing issues on the fenders or struts...have to measure and go from there. If they fit, I'll be polishing them to a shine!
  13. I'm all for the concept, just not crafty enough with the sheet metal. It would be a great project idea for one of the cable show restoration programs to pull off.
  14. Thanks, my passion is installing old school car audio, I picked a 2+2 for that reason. The rear seats will be removed and in its place will be a nice integrated amp rack. Spare tire well will hold the suwoofer in a fiberglass enclosure.
  15. That's my plan, I'm looking forward to the basic maintenance and driving through October.
