  2. Hi Richard, Looks like Lester008 contacted you first about the Series I steering wheel. Please let me know if it doesn't work out. Thanks, Steve
  3. I agree with you, Mark. The people in Arizona don't know how good they have it with their low-rust or rust-free classic cars. Can't beat the price at only $1,700.00!
  4. Thanks all, I didn’t want to damage my air galley rail, as you can see from the pic it’s a perfect piece and has been replated. I chose to get the plugs from Z Car Depot.
  5. Today
  6. Found this '73 240Z on the Tucson Craigslist. The car has a 260Z engine with round-tops. Needs front fenders, hood, fuel tank, bumpers, and tail lights. Seller claims that the suspension is all intact and rolls freely. Seller will include a 4-speed. Has a title. A lot of stuff missing, but appears to be a solid Arizona car for only $1,700.00. Here's the link: https://tucson.craigslist.org/pts/d/tucson-datsun-parts-car/7083772784.html
  7. Does this help? https://www.carpartsmanual.com/datsun/Z-1969-1978/engine-240z-260z/fuel-tank/to-aug-74
  8. Similar to others, cut off the plugs, welded shut and and ground down all of the metal inside of the runner that was obstructing the exhaust flow.
  9. This guy needs one of these. He'd probably take the whole spring piece.
  10. Hello Mike. Sorry to keep picking on you about this but it's a real bummer. And I just found a new change, that maybe you can do something about. I used to be able to search my own content, then choose Topics on the sidebar, and I would see a list of Topics that I had posted in. Now when I click Topics what i get is a list of Topics that I started. Not the same thing. The reason I would click Topics is the same reason that I would like to see older Topics on one page. So that a person doesn't have to look through all of the posts on a popular topic.
  11. Ok then, I saw the P30 prefex and thought it might be of worth to someone.
  12. I talked with Performance shock in CA and they said both the Koni and Bilsteins would be money ahead to replace them to repair . Anyone want a set of used shocks ?
  13. Yea, keeping this car as close to original as possible. Have a header on my other Z
  14. Here are some possible crossover fitments I found on Hybrids (old topic though) https://forums.hybridz.org/topic/69623-the-strut-thread-koni-illumina-tokico-carrera-bilstein-ground-control/?do=findComment&comment=713197
  15. I saw that one listed on eBay not long ago. I am pretty sure the ZX ones are different than the S30's The ZX fronts work in the 510 fronts, and the ZX rears are completely different. There are some ZX rears on eBay right now as well, but these front ones are no longer listed. I am not sure if it was the same seller but the pic was the same.

  17. He’s right - there’s alternatives . With the Megasquirt I would want to go all in and have it run everything though . HEI would be nifty .
  18. Siteunseen. I routed my PCV hoses like you did yours. Pretty cool, got rid of a small metal tube with bracket and about 4 hose clamps. Also discovered I still had the flame arrestor in my original hose. Thanks for that.
  19. Got some under hood time with the BCDD. With key in on position and touching solenoid wire to connector it would click. With car running and wire disconnected, car would idle up at ~2k rpm. Hook the wire back up and it would settle back down to 800rpm. Turning the screw on bottom of BCDD had no effect on the high idle when solenoid wire was disconnected. Took it for a drive and the rpms would stay up when shifting and coasting, worse than before. I could pull up the pedal from underneath and it would drop, but pretty hard to drive that way. I thought I was going to have to take the TB off and clean it but when I took the linkage off it, it seemed to slam close pretty good disconnected from all throttle linkage. I checked the throttle linkage and found the FPR rubbing on the linkage. What a pain getting that to move enough for it not to rub. I cleaned up the linkage, and the balls and greased them. Low and behold, rpms drop now when letting off gas to shift. I don't know if the BCDD works or not, but it's driveable now. Also discovered I don't have dash pot on TB either.
  20. View Advert I'm old; Time to sell 240 STUFF As we approach spring clean-up time, I'm going to be posting quite a number of 240Z parts for sale. As I dig stuff out of my snow-bound shed and take photos I'll probably post two or three per day. In addition to the ones posted today, I'm going to be selling a Series 2 rear hatch and two doors, a new replacement driver's side floor pan, headlight buckets, a set of new, shorter (racing) springs, a RF fender, 3-piece rear exterior panel set, a plastic ceiling cross-piece, visors, probably two front anti-roll bars, and more as I mulch through my collection / accumulation. For today, I'm listing two differential mounts, two transmission mounts, and asking $10 each; a Series 1 steering wheel (in need of refinishing but otherwise sound) asking $25, and a glove box door (missing two flat-head screws) at $15. I'm in western Canada; Red Deer, Alberta to be specific, so shipping for larger stuff such as doors will be a big-ticket item for long distances and across borders, and probably not workable. As for the smaller parts, it shouldn't be an obstacle. Advertiser Richard McDonel Date 02/28/2020 Price Category Parts for Sale

  22. Thanks Steve...I will try and find one. It's basically just the small hose coming off the top of the vapor tank...and what happens to it once it goes through the body and underneath the rear of the car...I currently have it looped around the filler neck...and that can't be correct...! Also...the factory grey hose seems to be about 6 inches short of the small nipple on the bottom of the vapor tank...and it is supposed to be NOS...! Thanks for your help...Ryals
  23. Ryals, I think the Haynes manual may have better pictures of the vent hoses than the factory service manual.
  24. Yesterday
  25. There are more sophisticated options to control spark. Lock out the advance mechanism of the distributor and it becomes essentially like a CAS on the damper pulley. Similar to what you get with the 123 except you use your original distributor. https://www.cbperformance.com/CB-s-Black-Box-Programmable-Timing-Control-Module-p/2013.htm You could also go to a crank trigger and something like Megasquirt or Microsquirt. If you want reliability and inexpensive ignition modules, convert any of your three distributors to use a GM HEI module. About $25 each.
  26. I've to search for the under glovebox photos...I can't locate the photos...perhaps I've got them on another disc...but I promise that tomorrow I'll post the photos!!! ahahah...no...too far from Japan!!!
