  1. Today
  2. One of our favorite cars at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon was a humble Nissan Cedric sedan. Built by students at Tokyo Automobile University School, the car represented a brief period in the 1960s when Japan tried its hand at … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

    Datsun-240z Vs Fairlady-z432

    I got one of their catalogs when I was in Japan and man I wish I had known them before rebuilding my engine. I'm still drooling over the JDM taillight they sell. (Not because jdm just that I think it looks better with yellow turn signals) So they are producing replacement S20 heads huh? I am still looking into getting a rb30e head to try and modify into that cross flow LY head Nissan produced. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile

    Datsun-240z Vs Fairlady-z432

    Thanks Gavin , additional pictures are fun to look at . Hi RS02 , let’s enjoy our Z together. Always nice to see owners in overseas. Kameari Engine Works is very popular in Japan , L Gata engine builders can’t do their work without Kameari. Recently Kameari is listing almost every S20 Engine’s “ necessary “ parts , that is also very helpful. Some of them are made in outside Japan , oh , I am waiting to hear about “ S20 replacement cylinder head “ which is made in Thailand. Kats
  5. True Black Pearl with Paint Code 638 that needs a lot of work. At $1,000.00 and listing ends soon on eBay. Here's the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1978-Datsun-Z-Series-BLACK-PEARL-EDITION/163499977529?hash=item26115bab39:g:q7kAAOSwNJJcQJdW:rk:22:pf:0&vxp=mtr

    Color wiring diagram for 280Z

    Maybe Mike can rename this thread “77 280Z colour wiring diagram” to avoid confusion with other years.

    Title Issues!

    NICB.org Scroll down and you'll see the "search vincheck" window. It gave me a "theft and salvage record". I would assume if you want other info you may have to pay. Have fun
  8. And a couple more of the linkage through the firewall.
  9. Here’s a good shot of the motor and the clearance with the pedal box.

    Which one is NICB? How many did you have to try to find the free one? What kind of information did you get? This is "USA CarRecord". The second one is one of the other guys.

    Battery Frame Insulator?

    Folks, please let me use this thread to possibly put this subject to rest. Datsun called it a Cushion Battery and the part # was 24480-E4600. It has been No Longer Available for more than 25 years. It is my opinion that Nissan decided to use such a thing as they simply didn't like the idea of 2 metal surfaces making contact. A little like the 240 rear bumper end brackets. When Nissan started the Z Store program they commissioned Banzai Motorworks to reproduce it and a whole slew of NLA parts for use in the program. They stole/hired a quality control engineer from Boeing to make sure that what they bought from Banzai was correct in every way. Wonder what became of her? Although the picture is a bit unclear - I hate to take such a rare part out of the original bag - a New Old Stock cushion is on the left and the reproduction on the right. Be careful - there are those who have probably never seen the real deal selling what they claim is an accurate reproduction - beware. The cushion and battery frame were held to the firewall by the fasteners shown in the second picture. They are a 6mm x 23mm long Phillips hex bolt with a captive lock washer in clear zinc. The flat washer is 6mm with an OD of 18mm in yellow zinc. Cheers

    Title Issues!

    I just went to NICB 's website and went to "Search VINCheck" and was able to run my vin for free.
  13. Yah sorry I should have said that I didn’t have any direct knowledge about the car or the trans. I noticed the shifter location early in the auction and asked the question. The seller took days to even response and apparently doesn’t know or understand what was done. Hope the buyer isn’t surprised when they figure out what they got for The $. I am still curious why you would even think to do that to that car. 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.

    New connectors

    Banzai Motorworks has all of those connectors in stock
  15. I didn't see a picture of a 620 in that link. Here's what I was looking at below. The tail shaft opening on the 71C's is dramatically bigger. The metal ring is pressed on. The 71C's are early 80's VG30 engines and on I believe. I think he had to have done a front case swap. Anyway, it's a done deal. $27,000 for somebody's 240Z hobby that they messed around with.

    Early 240Z fuel distribution rail needed

    Somewhere, somewhere....
  17. You can see where they extended the original transmission cross member to move it forward a bit. Google Datsun shorty 5 speed and there is s post out there shows 5 different 5 speeds https://ratsun.net/topic/62066-datsun-transmissions/ 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.
  18. I've heard of those but never seen one. Explains maybe why the transmission mount fits. The typical 71C swap needs a modified mount.
  19. Hello all. I need a fuel distribution rail for an early 240Z. It needs to be the early type that has a block at the end nearest to the firewall >>>See the illustration below for the type that I need. I can't use the type that has a 180 degree turn in the tubing at the firewall end. You can text a picture to me at 250-734-3811. Thanks! Pete

    I think it is what you're thinking of. Unfortunately, instead of making it free to the public like they should because our tax money paid for it, they've made it available for companies to use and charge us for the information. Double taxation.

    Title Issues!

    I don't know if what Zed found is the system I know of but there is a way to search for a VIN to make sure it hasn't been reported stolen. It's not too hard to register a car here if it's 30yrs old Plus.

    Am I missing anything?

    http://www.koni-na.com/getattachment/NorthAmerica/News/News-Releases/KONI-Sport-Performance-Dampers-for-Classic-’70-83/37102_KONI_Datsun_Z_Motorsport_PressRelease.pdf.aspx/?lang=en-US Wow! Thank you Zed for that information. This could be a game changer. I just got off the phone with Motorsport Auto and the rep said that yes, they have partnered with Koni and are very soon coming out with NEW Koni struts made for the Datsun Z cars. Woo Wooo. He said they are putting all the finishing touches on the marketing campaign and finishing up testing and then they will be ready to go. I asked him if he had a date or even a ballpark date they would be available but he declined and just said, very soon.
