  1. Past hour
  2. Also to be clear, all this testing I've done is with the fast idle screw completely backed off, and with both carb's idle screws completely backed off. When you say the choke cables should be removed when testing, that is just to be extra sure they're not adding any richness, right?
  3. Oh, I think it could be reswaged. A flat end screwdriver and a hammer or may a contraption in the bench vise, something... It'sbroke now, so nowhere but up 😉
  4. Yesterday
  5. HA - They came in on Friday after months...Coated on its way!!! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Much appreciated, I’ll give them a call! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Well, turns out the pieces are there but pretty much disintegrated. Lol.
  11. 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.
  12. Let's not forget adding strength to the body as they were no designed to handle that much power.
  13. 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.
  14. "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
  15. 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
  16. 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.
