  1. Past hour
  2. Tre and Comrades280z, Trunk hatch lid and gas tank are available. I did not find time today to check them out or take pictures for condition. I may also be tied up tomorrow, but I will get additional info on condition when I can. Thanks, Duane.
  3. Rockauto only shows standard size. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/nissan,1976,280z,2.8l+l6,1209226,engine,crankshaft+main+bearing,5220
  4. I suggest using a heat gun to soften the rubber housing enough to force it back in. While you have access to the choke cable itself, might as well replace the steel wire itself. Here's the step-by-step process: https://woodworkerb.com/home/datsun-240z-rebuild/repair-choke-cable/
  5. Today
  6. That would work great for a DOHC engine where the spark plug hole comes straight down from the top of the piston. Not sure how well it would work with the plug hole coming in on an angle like the Z. I'm picturing the shaft bending if the tip doesn't slide easy on the piston top. All comes down to vectors and friction. What you really need is a pivoting arm. Does such a device exist?
  7. Yesterday
  8. HA - They came in on Friday after months...Coated on its way!!! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Well, turns out the pieces are there but pretty much disintegrated. Lol.
  13. 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.
  14. Let's not forget adding strength to the body as they were no designed to handle that much power.
  15. 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.
  16. "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
