  1. Interesting, Thanks @26th-Z
  2. I thought that some early US cars with 1969 production dates were UN spec. Maybe @Carl Beck or @26th-Z will chime in. Here's another 1970 Canadian ad,
  3. Fan control switch

    Ok, you got me. Now I have to come up with an excuse for the collection of parts in the spare bedroom closet.
  4. Fan control switch

    I happen to have these spares in my office right now. As site said there is a nut that goes on the panel, front side. There is also a flat on the thread and in the panel hole for orientation. But it doesn't really stop rotation, the clamping of the nut does that. Here's a pic. HTH Mike

  6. Deja Vu: 1971 Restoration

    Amazing work on your project, I have this topic bookmarked as a reference in case I ever get to a full resto of my car. Just wondering about the color of the hood hinge torsion bars? I thought they were black as they can be seen though the grill.
  7. Choke Cable Grommet Installation 1972 240z

    I don't really know what the differences for the hose are, but I replied with some info from my parts book CD.
  8. PCV Hose Question

    The Nissan parts book shows four part numbers for the PCV hose (item 3) from 1970 to 1973. I'm not sure what the differences are but the first P/N shows for up to 12'70 and the part number starting 1'71 not being backwards compatible. Also here is a picture of my 7'70 car showing the early hose. HTH Mike
  9. Choke Cable Grommet Installation 1972 240z

    I temporarily used a NOS '72 choke cable on my '70 and had to remove the boots. To do that I just carefully pulled them off using linesman plies with the jaws wrapped in electrical tape. Later I put them back on using the same method before I sold that cable and had no issues.
  10. The ICA column refers to parts interchangeability, the attached pages from the 1970 520/521 pickup 1970 parts book show definitions of all the columns. HTH Mike

    Here's my attempt at a little eclipse humor
  12. Different choke cables

    The '72 choke cable is definitely shorter by a few inches. I managed to get the '72 cable to work in my '70, but the cable was quite bent over where it left the choke linkages on the carbs. In fact it resulted in so much effort to pull the choke lever that I thought I would break the knob. Last year I ended up repairing my original cable by using the original sheath and making a new cable from .055 music wire, .055 stainless wire is also available. It works great now, here are a couple of links on the subject.

  14. Wax

    +1 on the clay bar as the first step, it works good on glass too. I prefer Mothers products. Mike
  15. Did some engine & engine bay detailing, I'm thinking it's not looking bad for 146,000 miles and engine never been out of the car.
