240 Turn Signal Problems???

Hello all, Car 1971 Datsun 240z HLS30-22328 I am having rear turn signal problems. I had a hacked up front engine wire harness in the car. I changed it out to a new cleaner un molested harness. I have cleaned all connectors in the car with contact cleaner and a tooth brush and so on. The problem I am having is, when I turn on the signals to go left... Just the front LH signal comes on and not the rear. When I put the signals on to go right. The RH front signal works and both the LH and RH rear come on. I have tried switching out the signal switch and I have the same problem. I have by-passed the flasher unit and again I get the same response. I have tried as well 2 different rear wire harnesses in the car and yet again the same problem. Not even a slight response out of the LH rear signal at all!!! I have also put new bulbs in and gone over the dash wire harness and it does not look like its had any work or been modifyed in any way. If anyone has any ideas. I would love the help. Thanks,

15 inch tires

I have a set of the original 15x7 american mags but need to purchase tires for them... I have a 1972 240Z and would like to know what size of tires I can safely put on without rubbing the fenders? Do not want a real agressive race tire but want it to look really good... Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Ken Mikkelson new to the forum.

1971 z wiper problem

The wipers on my 71 240z do not work, neirher does the washer. I got a new motor but it will not work either. Checked the fuse in the fuse box under the center console and the fuse is good. Are there fuses anywhere else? How can I check the switch on the steering column.

Horn Button DATSUN label printed

I had a horn button but no badge on it with the word "DATSUN" so I selected a font similar to a real badge and resized it to print at the right diameter to tape to the horn button. See below the asterisks for another print option using a scan of a real badge that I obtained after I originally wrote this. Continuing here, the font selection came out okay, see attached picture of result and the file I printed the word "DATSUN" with. Printing the label on photo paper if your printer supports that or having it printed at a kinkos type of print business might significantly improve print quality and make the background print blacker. I covered the printout badge with clear packing tape and cut out two round circles from a document protector plastic to put on both sides of the printout to keep the printout badge looking okay. I used a bench grinder and a flat abrasive tool to grind down the edges to a fairly round shape. I taped three little pieces of clear packing tape from the front outside edge around to the back to hold the assembly together. Then I rolled four pieces of clear packing tape around on itself with the sticky side out to tape the whole thing to the horn button. I may get a real badge someday but this printout will work until then. To make the size correct in print preview select 100% as the size or 72 DPI which mean the same thing in this case. If the print is the wrong size adjust the DPI to be different than 72 DPI, maybe try 80 or 65 or some other variation. Printing at 80 DPI will make the print a bit smaller, 65 will make it larger. Mike *************************************************************** Note that since I originally wrote this I obtained a horn button with the metal label Datsun on it. After I removed the metal label I scanned it in and it can be seen below. I touched up the scan to get rid of dust particles etc that were visible. It was scanned in at 400 DPI, using that resolution when printing should yield the correct size. Back of horn button and badge label dimension information: The mounting post is in a recessed rectangular area so that the length of the post and the thickness add up to more than the overall distance from the end of the post to the other side of the label if that makes any sense. Symbols on back of badge label:

73 240

I'm the new guy around here. My son and I recently purchased a 73 240. all orig. except for 1 door or latch. Tires maybe the exhaust. We need help with the carbs. Supposedly were rebuilt, but it's not running right. needs brakes, There is a brake in the line somewhere. The paint is really good. And the interior is as well. Carpets are dry rotted. No rust anywhere. Car is sort of a barn find. Old timer had it. He bought it about 10 or 15 years ago. painted it and has basically been sitting there. 43,000 original miles. Beautiful car and I think more than worthy of being showcase material. Any help or direction for parts and supplies would be great, And also what is acceptable to change out and whats not. Thank You, Bill

What distributor do I have?

My 1971 240Z had a Jacobs Energy Pak in it when I bought it. A couple of days ago, it died and wouldn't start. Apparently the switch for "Computer" or "Conv Ign" has lived it's full life; there are 3 large cracks in the top of the switch and it kind of crunches when switching from one position to the other. Anyway, I decided to remove the Jacobs and install a Petronix or something. While doing this. I discovered that my L24 does not have the stock distributor. It has a D6K82-01, which I believe is from a later model (1983?) 280ZX. The module LOOKS like an E12-92 in that it has 4 terminals, 2 on top and 2 on the side. I cannot locate anything saying it is an E12-92, just IGM-08 and nothing identifying it as a Nissan or Datsun part. Questions: Can someone tell me what year/years and models used the D6K82-01 distributor? Any idea what module I have? What was the Jacobs Energy Pak good for? The car starts and runs fine afer wiring the distributor and bypassing the ballast resistor (Well, at least after I reconnected the coil to distributor wire when it wouldn't start!). I have had it up to about 75mph with no problems, and acceleration seems fine with no hint of pre ignition and good acceleration; I thought this would be a problem if I have an E12-92 or aftermarket equivalent module

Z clubs in San Francisco Bay area

I'm trying to find Z clubs in San Jose or the San Francisco Bay area. I see on some websites that there is supposedly two clubs of interest, a Northern California club using the web address www.zonc.org and a San Jose club using the web address clubz.org, but neither of these web addresses are currently being used by Z clubs. Does anyone know of current contact info for San Jose or San Francisco area Z clubs?
