    I bought my grandpas car and now rebuilding it after he has passed away
  1. My 240z project

    The motor is pretty much ready to start. I am waiting for the exhaust to show so it can be bolted on. It is coming from California Datsun. I started this motor project with good friend at Miner Automotive. I still have my 240 block that came out of the car. I felt that some day I may have fun building it. Unfortunately it is not matching numbers. My grandma had mentioned that they had the motor replaced and no longer had the original when I got it from her. So with that said we decided to build up a F54 block with bored flat tops and original e88 head. I ordered some z therapy carbs and here it is ready to fire. Not sure my grandpa would understand the polished parts . But I got carried away making it mine. My mission has been to keep everything stock except the motor and obviously color. My grandpa always wanted to paint it silver so keeping it green wasn’t the best option. So I chose a tint of silver “charcoal “ it is a Nissan color though. Going to finish getting her running then off to paint.. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile

    Does anyone have any experience with this electronic points replacement? I have a 71 240z that I am wanting to replace the points with a electronic system. I have heard about replacement of the tach and distributor with a zx model. Just curious if anyone has replaced stock ignition system with a electronic system with minimal mods to the the chassis.

    Zed I have not started the motor yet. I was just trying to collect info from people that are familiar with the ignition system and try to compare apples to apples. Mine does not match the FSM Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  14. ignition wiring

    Hello guys, I am in need of your help. I have searched this site and google for help on this topic ( search not too user friendly for me on this site, must not be doing something right) I have a 71 240z that was an automatic so there is some extra wiring and relay in part of this problem, I am converting to manual. Another problem is that some of the wiring was charred, I took pics and tried not getting things mixed up. The wiring to the coil and distributor does not resemble the FSM, the FSM does not have 2 B/W wires from the harness by the driver side horn I have as the following 2 B/W stripe wires- one going to the + on the coil and the other going to the resistor 1 B wire going to 6 pin plug which goes to timing relay for Automatic Transmission then I believe it is connected to another black wire in that 6 pin plug going to Distributor (not sure where) 1 Y wire that I believe goes the temp sensor 1 G wire going to 6 pin plug for A/T relay then one red wire leaves the plug going the neg terminal on coil and a wire is spliced going to Distributor (not sure where) 1 G/W stripe going to the other side of the resistor. any tips or guidance would be very appreciated
  15. Crankcase breather

    Any suggestions on aftermarket air filter and crank case breather. I was considering using the stock air cleaner. But as my engine is coming together I am re thinking that. I have seen some nice pics of aftermarket filters. I will be running SU Carbs from Ztherapy Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
