    No. Soldering abilities at the Nissan factory weren't very good back then. Broken solder joints and loose connections happen. Some connections are soldered and some are staked. Time to pry those tabs back and take the cover off.

    It is now. I just had it on the floor like that to paint for a short while. Thanks!

    I got chill bumps when he came up on that bike to his left before going into a right turn. That guy is the best, most courteous driver I've ever seen. I only heard that car sputter one time on a long straight. I think he floated the valves!

    Propane heat on the aluminum around the cog will help expand it.

    I'm with Patcon. I have a small propane fireplace in my garage and a 100lb tank outside. Keeps it toasty and less cost than electricity. With your chairs it would give a nice ambience 🙂

    I'd put a couple of 2' 2X4 parallel on the floor so that the shaft in the transmission is not on the floor. Just let the face of the housing rest on the wood.

  12. The '75-'76 have a steel ring inside that's covered with - well, what you saw in the picture above. They don't last here in Arizona. They start crumbling and de-laminate from the core so the covering then twists on the steel ring below.

    You can also tell that that's not his first rodeo. He obviously knew the track and ran most of the lines pretty good except for slower traffic

    I removed the speedo cable housing carefully using vice grips padded with a shop towel. Wiggled it back and forth and it finally came out. Good luck. Easier when in the car as it took a bit of muscle to get the thing to turn. Cheers, Mike

    I used a Big Maxx vented propane unit. They work good and can be run on natural gas if it's available. They make a several sizes

    If you are in a cold environment, electric heat will bankrupt you. I am probably going to go with radiant tube heating in my shop, like they use in some factories. My buddy has it in his 1,500 ft hanger. He pays only about $40/month, and he keeps the temp at 65 all winter long. When the heat is on, all of the surfaces are warm to the touch. Even the floor. I can see the benefit of being able to take the wheels off with the 2 poster. However, you would not be able to use it for storage. I have been leaning toward the 4 poster, with a jack bridge option to get he wheels off.

    Great pictures. That's exactly where my lift is. Thank you. I want nothing more than to do it right. So far this site has been nothing but great. What an awesome resource.

    I think your lift is great as well as your lift locations: If you have a floor jack: If you are stuck on the side of the road:

    I mentioned this recently in another thread, but no one came through to confirm/deny or expand on it: There were reports some years ago that a section of a Z front fender has a contour that replicates the under-battery section of the inner fender. Unfortunately, I don't recall that suggestion being accompanied by pictures to show how it was done (or whether it was done). Even if true, Z front fenders don't grow on trees these days, so it would probably amount to a difficult or expensive solution (or both). However... The general concept is interesting. Perhaps a re-pop or scrap front fender from a more pedestrian donor vehicle would serve equally well? It would need to be a vehicle (car or pickup truck) with a similar, rounded styling. However, I think you'd only be able to size up the feasibility of this approach by cutting out the Z inner fender repair area and then eye-balling the shape, hoping that it would ring a bell: 'You know, that looks a lot like the crown of the front fender from a 1986 Ford Taurus'. A DIY alternative would be to take a fibreglass cast from the repair area and then do some tree-stump/sandbag tin bashing, using the cast as a shape reference.

    Ok. I did a bunch of research and it appears that lots of people recommend jack placement in the same position I placed mine. It looks like the most obvious place, and appears to also be the strongest support area. I did lower my car removing any stress. Thanks for the input.

    I like that steering wheel. All the 240Z wheels I've seen before have different spokes than what you have. The series 1 cars don't have the holes punched out, they're just indented where the holes on this wheel are.

    I really like what you did with the graphics! Subtle, not too flashy, nice touch.

    It’s not on the floor. I think that would nearly destroy the car
