    Original owner of a 73 240 with 57k on the clock. Just finished a restoration
  1. 240z Electric Fuel Pump Installation

    You may find that with the mechanical fuel pump removed that if the car sits for an extended period it may not start or crank excessively long. The electric fuel pump (whether new or old) runs off the safety relay under the dash. This relay is powered by the alternator. When cranking the alternator may not put out enough voltage to energize the relay. I found the relay needs 4.5 volts to energize and the alternator only puts out 3.5 volts while cranking. With no fuel in the carbs due to evaporation you will sit. The safety relay was designed by Datsun to kill the fuel pump in the event of an accident to prevent gas fuled fires. No engine running; no voltage; no gas. The mechanical fuel pump would provide fuel to the carbs while cranking. My 1973 240 is used sparingly and the Webers go dry. I installed a byass switch ( montentary action) across the relay coil. Basically I hold the button in for several seconds to "prime" the carbs. Starts every time now.
  2. Triple Weber rebuild kit

    I bought rebuild kits from Redline for my 42DCOE's. Gaskets, float, float valve,fuel strainer and anair strainer.
  3. Triple Weber rebuild kit

    I bought rebuild kits from Redline for my 42DCOE's. Just gaskets not much more. No jets etc. I soaked my carbs (disassembled) in Gunk car cleaner. Did a great job.
  4. Any know of a respectable shop who can tune Weber's? My top end is fine but have low to midrange issues on my 240. Regards, AndyK
