  1. Past hour
  2. I don't think I can re-swage something that's already been swaged... The metal looks thick, almost like a casting, probably swaged at the factory using some industrial press. Surprised to find no hits on this when I searched... I can't be the only Z owner with this issue, can I? Yep; already bought that... It's waiting to go in, but first I have to get the cable situation sorted.
  3. Yesterday
  4. HA - They came in on Friday after months...Coated on its way!!! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Much appreciated, I’ll give them a call! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Would they need my car or just the carpets? What about shipping? I have ACC 30 minutes from me so I'm a little prejudiced.
  7. Adjust the arm so that it is in contact with the back of the horn button when the horn button is pushed in. If it is resting against the horn button, you have completed the circuit, and the horn will blow constantly.
  8. Washed and polished the car in preparation for the Mitty. I might have to leave it at home on Saturday since there's a lot of rain in the forecast for that day. I also took the time to install an old 240Z door striker plate on the passenger side. I replaced the original striker plate a long time ago, but I could never get the aftermarket plate adjusted right. The old striker plate works much better.
  9. Well, turns out the pieces are there but pretty much disintegrated. Lol.
  10. It sticks in my mind that I read a write-up of how to repair the window regulators some time ago. It may be worth searching for ways to repair what you have if you have not already done so.
  11. Let's not forget adding strength to the body as they were no designed to handle that much power.
  12. That would likely be it. You mentioned the front of your car is higher on one side. How much? If you keep the original structure, you will need to determine how much out of position it is, and then figure out how to pull it back where it belongs. A frame machine is how body shops do it, anchoring the chassis down and forcing everything back where it should be. The engine bay is a large box. After sustaining a hit that deformed that box it is no longer square. Getting it back into shape is crucial for getting the bodywork to fit well again.
  13. "News" programs are TV shows, funded by commercial interests, designed to get people to buy things. Whatever keeps the consumer amped up and buying is what the producers want. CO's post was a good one, but, of course, you have to ask who put the plot together. Another group selling news. Question everything. https://www.adfontesmedia.com/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_Fontes_Media
  14. The seller is asking $12,500.00 for this '72 240Z, HL30-79063, looks to have its original 901 Silver paint. It also has it original matching numbers engine (L24-99995), original window sticker and owner's manual and perhaps its original date-stamped wheels? Both of the floor pans look very solid and looking at the rest of the pictures, it looks to be a pretty solid car overall, but anyone interested in this Z would need to see more pictures of the undercarriage. The title is missing. Here's the link: https://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/cto/d/cumming-1972-datsun-240z/7309011009.html "1972
  15. 18.5mm and has an "R" on it. Perfect. You guys are the best!! @siteunseen @Terrapin Z My rebuild kits should be here in a couple days. I sure hope one of them is the long version. I really don't want to have to carve a new one myself.
  16. Last week
  17. Well I grew up in Kansas, so I was kind of used to "straight and endless" 😄 The Mountie that caught me was a very helpful fellow and I was surprised that I was allowed to continue on and could mail in my fine after I returned to California to resume my pre-Navy job. Which I did! Canadians are so nice! Thanks for the photos of the A6 Intruders at the base entrance! That is the aircraft my squadron flew.

    The cleaners came just as I was planning on sitting at the laptop, so i HAD to leave the house and socially distance myself in the garage Fixed fuel sender so that the float is now pointing left instead of right! Filled up with an eye watering £80 of Esso 99 then went for a drive. Incidentally that’s their new fuel without ethanol! Next time you Yankee boys are complaining at the pumps, spare a thought for the rest of us paying $2 / litre and financing gold Lamborghinis in the Middle East oh and our thriving government with close to 80% tax on fuel! With the fuel sender showing F now,
  19. Woof. I suspect those old injectors had been knocking around in boxes for so long, they probably started consolidating them and mixed them up. Glad to hear you're back on the money!
  20. Indeed, I am replacing my floors now. I have been rereading the entire section and have been taking notes to copy some of your ideas - like scoring the metal to facilitate bending of your frame connectors and adding a jack plate for starters. Thank you again for taking the time to provide so much helpful information - especially what the original sheet metal looked like!
  21. Most carpeople don't do that they always refer to left and right seen from the drivers seat.. You could say: seen on the left IN this picture.. otherwise it's confusing. Hihi, i'm glad an english man does also not know a word for those "thingies" 🤣
  22. Here is a new photo that surfaced of the Chicago Auto Show:
  23. A friend had a clutch collar off a 280z so I just sent it and it worked perfectly. Finally after a year I've finally been able to drive the car! She runs hot however 😕 water pump is probably bad because water is leaking, might need some new radiator, and some other stuff here and there. Carbs need a little tuning because they don't do well under heavy load like when I do a pull. Thanks for all the help guys.
