Maybe a "specialist" on USA type 240z's can chip in, could it be that you are missing these? (The Euro version don't have these..)
(I got a set of these, they came from a garage here in the Netherlands and are about 35 years old but new old stock. A technician ordered the wrong part...it happens!)
I've seen these go for 200 dollar a piece! and were in worse state.. If this is what you need you can make me a offer, but remember the shippingcosts are also high, if interested i could get you a estimate on shipping costs.
You need some rubber round thingy's to close those 2 holes in the front, orig. euro cars have them. these are about 3mm bigger then the hole is and stick out about 2,5 mm. And are a bit conical..
Here on the rear bumper to see, they are the same.
I wouldn't weld it. It could make the chipping worse.
The chips are not as bad as I thought they were. I assure I have seen worse and they worked fine for thousands of miles without giving any trouble.
The most I would do is clean them up a little with a dremel grinder. Be a little carefull using reverse and definitely don't try pulling it into reverse while the car is still rolling forward.
The most probable cause of those chips is people hitting reversewhen they come outof 5th to go back to 4th. It tends to happen more when the selector bushes are worn.
That is why they a
You want base to the top of the circle? I can get that in the morning. I have 3 different sets to show. 2 have "1.7" stamped on them. The Grose valves do not.
I went from the base to the top of the hex, making sure not to get the spring's wire on the one's I posted. Sadurday night baby, my eyes are bad at the moment.
Yes I'll try it round the block first. Maybe the rabbit or a young malnourished child assembled the two that failed. Yes they were drinking and smoking ATF. Or possibly the bigger engine makes too much vac for the little modulators. I've got one for a 280zx to try next. My jack and jack stands are too short though. Difficult to get under the trans and it's hard to work on so close to the collector so I'm taking it where there's a lift to install the new one. Hurt my shoulder installing the last one. If my arm was a foot longer I could do it easy from the engine bay.
Yes, I was planning on using my floor jack to raise the diff into place. So with the mustache bar on the diff and the diff mount front member on the front of the diff, I will raise it into place and take the measurement.
Sounds simple enough, just trying to avoid any unnecessary pitfalls.
Thanks very much,
p.s. somebody has put some modified springs in there. There's only three coils. There's a certain spring from another car that works if it's cut right. Somebody has already been in to those struts.
Is it one of those lowered to the ground cars? Might be that the shocks have been bottoming out and beat the heck out of that gland nut. Won't be surprised if they've been stripped completely out. The picture I posted above shows that there are probably only one or two threads holding the shock in the tube.
Agreed. That was a fun read (even for those of us who didn't grow up in the Fraser Valley). Nice to a mention of my old racing acquaintance from Kelowna, Keis Neirop (1983 Sebring winner and also responsible for the only all-wood 240Z rotisserie that I've ever seen).
I poked around on the internet this morning and tracked down the location of the old Chilliwak Datsun dealership. As someone else on the linked thread pointed out, it's now only a shadow of its old self, reincarnated as 'Campus Auto Sales' and 'Classic Cars'. You can clearly identify the original showroom building by its
