    Ignition circuit wires all smoking

    Okay you see all those terminal ends that are connecting with spade connectors. You should replace all the exposed ones with shielded ones. When these connectors have oxidization on them they are gonna have increased resistance and increased heat through the wire. You’re goal on anything electrical you touch is to clean it, and prevent it from getting oxidized. There is a common modification that people do to ensure that the starter is getting enough power to the stator which is to wire a relay into the system, so that there is direct power present. I’ve used ZX coils on old mini coopers for testing purposes, it was running fine, I believe Lucas coils are designed to run with no ballast resistor, it might say on the coil itself. There is no need for reverse polarity on the coil, typically for British reverse polarity cars they can be changed to standard ground on chassis. There’s a 9pin connection mod that you can do that would help reduce the load to the combo switch, I would need to find more information about this. If you need protected space connectors / round connectors, vintageconnections.com has some high quality stuff. That and super 33 tape + heat shrink should be helpful too. :) I think you might want to try that relay mod, research a bit, http://www.biopatent.com/solenoid.html If you do the relay mod, try to secure it somewhere. Chances are if your ignition system is changed to a points style, there’s a transistorized ignition board inside the passenger kick spaces which has been bypassed, I used this space for relays in my 260z, I made a bracket to add more relays, ended up with headlights, fuel pump, eletrical fans, all having relays down there. 260z are interesting cars, unfortunately they were also guinea pigs.

  3. How long has the car been sittting? Could be rusty tank issues too clogging fuel line. And by under load you mean driving or when you simply press the gas pedal?

    Stop starting new threads. Stick with the first one you started.

    240z full seats and rails

    Hi guys, Just purchased a 73 240z and am looking for both seats and all equipment. I'm in Orange County, CA, only looking for southern California sellers. Thanks!

    Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    Yep. I briefly mentioned it, but I am following the book 'how to rebuild your L series engine' so hopefully it all goes together the way it should 😉

    vin 181

    The car sold for $9,200 That's a good number for that car. This gives some perspective on the 3 cars in the field which are likely not much rustier but a little higher VIN numbers
  10. When I suggested slotting the tops I had in mind that one would weld in the plates once one had enough money to do so. You would need some form of camber bushings (front and rear) to make that work but those are cheap as opposed to a full suspension upgrade. We ran -3 degrees using this method before welding in TTT plates and adjustable control arms. Granted this was a race car and overall looks were not important. Those done by Mark are very, very pretty. Nice work.

    What she really needs is the ends and the center rubber. I think she has a good bar
  13. Among the many examples of 80s and 90s Japanese cars that populated Radwood NorCal this year, there were a few that really stood out to us. We hesitate to call them the best; except for the actual “Best Of” voted … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

    NEW Round Top SU Carburetor System 240Z

    They are better able to withstand vaporlock due to the internal float mechanism and thermal compensation mechanism. This was one of the characteristics I discussed with the engineering staff at SU, and it was agreed that it was better than the old external design.

    Here's a more straightforward link. I couldn't click on that giant proofpoint link, too scary. Apparently the guy only had it for 9 months. Maybe a flip job. heramb dandekar. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1971-datsun-240z-51/
