    Hi Rich-- Could you take another photo showing the orientation of the open part of the tow hook in the photo above?

    @Bonzi Lon Did my day good to see you post! How the hell are you Bonzi??? Have missed see you at Branson for a couple of years now and hope you are o.k. That roof offer still stands!! Jim Daniels Zup
  7. Zilver, Zup, Fiona and S30Driver wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!! May 2018 be the best year ever for you all!
  8. Well Jim 2 made it up here and his prediction is 100% accurate. 18* for a high and the coffee is iced! Probably sounds like a heat wave compared to @Namerow @zKars @240260280 I'd prefer @motorman7 temps---
  9. Dan, That someone would be Bryan. @LBO730 He made excellent reproduction shift and handbrake boots in both vinyl and leather. A lot of us on the forums purchased them from him. We tried to get a reproduction carpet set made but it fell through. I wish it hadn't. The perfect reproduction carpet set has yet to be made.
  10. FYI - 240Z Dashboards

    Interested in the texture of this. The original dash grain pattern is unique. Is it identical, and/or does it compare favorably to that found on Just Dashes restorations? Their's is not identical, but very close.
  11. 1973 Flat Top Tuning Info

    You are so right Bruce! I am the world's worst when it comes to taking the Z off the road for any amount of time. Each day that I don't drive it is like that day is really missing something----sorta like going to work without your pants on!
  12. Interesting 1973 E88 240z head info

    73 E88 = hemi-Z well--kinda/sorta???
  13. Deja Vu: 1971 Restoration

    Rich- http://www.datsun240zrubber.com/apps/webstore/products/show/7319377 Contact Steve Nixon regarding the battery cables. He has reproduced them very accurately and they would look perfect on this perfect restoration. Don't fret that it says "out of stock"---he'll make more.
  14. 1973 Flat Top Tuning Info

    Thanks so much Philip @240260280 and @Lumens----but really, I still have so much to learn. I've understood about half of the TSB. It is a loooooong step by step with no shortcuts allowed--quite different from the earlier Hitachi carbs. The many adjustments required are probably responsible for the maligned reputation as " boat anchors" As you know, I have gotten the flat tops running fairly well. Now--- I know that the fuel nozzles are currently nowhere near the correct setting of .118---one is at .074 and the other at .051---just waiting to do a removal and adjustment as they are internal to the carb and cannot be adjusted while installed. I think once that is done they will really show some performance. Nevertheless, they have already made it from Bentonville, Arkansas to Austin, Texas for ZCON 2017, through the great Circuit of the Americas parade (?????) laps (where my "optimistic" speedometer read 104 mph down the straight ) and back home with no issues. (except for the flat rear tire from a utility knife blade in Killeen, TX on the way down----thank goodness for @S30Driver and @MikeW and @Captain Obvious). Running a 73 240Z with flat tops and points and stock springs may put me in the "old geezer" record books on the COTA track for a while to come. (Not sure anyone else would care to challenge that with a run of their own) Great fun! Let's do it again in Atlanta 2018!! Thanks again for the TSB---much appreciated! I will refer to it often.
