  1. What a career, always worth reading about. If you're a Datsun owner who doesn't recognize the name, it's time you caught up! https://petrolicious.com/articles/a-conversation-with-one-of-americas-greatest-race-car-designers-peter-brock
  2. It's been a busy season for diecast Datsun collectors, and one of the coolest things out now has to be the Greenlight Tokyo Torque version of the 240Z built by BRE for Baja and now restored and owned by Carl Beck. Great to see such a unique car getting recognition! The Z comes in numerous other flavors and colors as well -- plus there's more goodies on the way.
  3. Quickest headlight upgrade?

    There are contact cleaners, etc. out there but a little scuffing with a wire brush works as well — so long as it doesn’t go through paint or surface coatings. Exposing and cleaning contact areas gives the best surface-to-surface results, then a shot or dab of an electron-friendly protectant can help the cause. Just check what you’re using as some products work as an insulator to reduce conductivity.
  4. Quickest headlight upgrade?

    As mentioned elsewhere, clean the ground contact areas as well because this is half the equation and is frequently overlooked. Corrosion and oxidation add resistance, and that’s not a good thing when trying to optimize current flow.

  8. Twin turbo 300ZX is credited as the first Japan-built car to break 400 kmh at Bonneville. These days it’s (somewhat) street driveable and up for auction. http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/buying-maintenance/a14503905/the-worlds-only-262mph-nissan-300zx-can-be-yours/ http://bhauction.jp/en/search/lot11.html

    Don't know about the AC. You could probably find enough flex in the choke cables to clear with the handle but the bracket might need modification.

    If you're wondering about the handle end of the cable, it mounts on an L bracket to the right of the steering column:

    This is what the choke cable looks like, similar to Z and Roadster styles but without the swedged cable ends shown. Nissan #18410-H2302 is NLA, but cables can be found on ebay, google and elsewhere as well as discussions for adapting other cables, like here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/bluebird510/choke$20cable|sort:date/bluebird510/DwdAB7Wvg8M/oRTXQHs1WXkJ

    I second the vote for needle/nozzle adjustment issue. Since you've already loosened the needles, suggest you CAREFULLY remove one and see how the piston action is. This should narrow things down quickly. Also, another plug here for the late lamented Dime Quarterly, the last "newsletter" before everything went totally internet. Tons of good technical info, and the editor did several articles specific to SUs. All issues are available as pdf. If you can't access the site, let me know. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByCvxnHNk90SZTVlNTU1N2YtZmQ2OS00ZjQwLWI1YTItMzlkZmIwNmZhZjJk/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByCvxnHNk90SYWExMmM2YjMtMDNkMS00MDM0LTljZDQtNDU4ZGFlYjc5YjI2/view?usp=sharing ISSUE INDEX -- https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/0ByCvxnHNk90SYzc4N2E1MWEtMzg0MC00YTE4LTkxZGQtM2RjODA5ODA1YjU1?hl=en TOPIC INDEX -- https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByCvxnHNk90SREtNSjQ2Wm9INzg/view?usp=sharing
