  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

    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

    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

    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.

    280z Wiring Diagram in Color

    I just updated the file here to version M.

    Fuel Pump Relays rewire

    Not to discredit any of the above advise, but from what I have experienced, 80% of the issues arise due to the 'vintage wiring connections' available at the time of production. First picture shows an unmolested harness from the fusible links to the main harness. The circled area is the highlight of my post. Unwrapping the harness gave an abundance of gritty, sand type substance. My best guess is that the harness from the fusible link acted as a 'funnel' for atmosphere & water to weep into the harness. Pic #2... As you can see, I have unwrapped more of the 'upper left' harness, which, in reality, feeds from the alternator. Now, once in that hornet's nest, I discovered why I was having so many electrical issues that I couldn't chase down but to the fusible links, changing them never helped. Pic #3 shows a close up of the factory 'crimp' connection, which is now non-existent. Well, I guess I got a bit of camera shake on that last one, but you can still see the remaining amount of gritty/sand substance left on that part of the harness. The electrical 'connection' was relying on the pressure of the wrapping tape, and, whatever else obtained access..... like gritty sand... as in intermittent... I have since upgraded my fusible links from the factory to the Caddy Catera Maxi-Fuse setup. In the OEM configuration, the 3-way (front) connector had 3-80A fuses, so I was assured the assembly could handle whatever the Z could throw at it... I was able to salvage enough red wire from the donor to route into the cabin of the Z, and the blue holder shown below is a direct feed from my alternator (internally regulated)

    Pics from 1972. Got tailgated at a stop light....went back with black laquer.
  21. I'm refurbishing my lights and all the nuts broke when I took them apart. I found a set on eBay but they are from Thailand. I looked at all the usual parts sources. Does anyone know where to get them? https://www.ebay.com/itm/3X-HEADLIGHT-ADJUST-SCREW-WHITE-PLASTIC-FITFOR-DATSUN-FAIRLADY-240Z-260Z-280Z/150882540704?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3D206154ce5fbd4f39b962027a811efb99%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D8%26mehot%3Dag%26sd%3D162684278544%26itm%3D150882540704&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851

    I agree while I had mine out I replaced the core, the short hose and valve with aftermarket and fit was perfect.

    Limited slip in California

    All good questions. I don't remember there being an engine picture but the VIN indicates it should be a turbo. I am unsure if all the turbo cars got LSD's in that year range
  26. Apply for a new title ! Got a bill of sale and get the car - especially if it’s decent. I got a 1970 that way. I don’t care if I don’t have the original title - ITS MINE ! Your going to have to make concessions to get an early one. I guess I won’t offer my 71 with no title and needing bodywork .

    Re keying door locks

    Oh.. so easy… if you're a handyman(!) .. Take apart the non working locks.. take your key that works on everything else.. now put that key in the non working lock..(after you have taken it apart..) now look at the plates (about 4 ?) change the plates from place, so they are flat with the surface or almost.. now if you have made the combination as flat as possible take a grinder and grind them flat on the round cilinder.. can be done with a file but a grinder go's faster and easyer.. now put your locks together again… Can't believe i tell these secrets! 😉
