Quick 240z question


76Datsun280z

Recommended Posts

On most all of the 240z's that I've seen have some type of foam wrapped around what appears to be the fuel lines with zip ties it looks to be. I haven't noticed this on any of the fi cars, so I assume it must have something to do with the carburators. Please excuse me if this is a stupid question.

This stuff was used in a effort to stop the overheating of the fuel rail. In '73 the emissions carbs , flat tops , were introduced and the percolating of the fuel in the rail became a real problem. This is also why the electric fuel pump was added. Gary

Uh Well I would be really careful in disposing of asbestos. It is an extreme health hazard. People that have been exposed to it die from it years later if they accidently inhale the the asbestos fibers. Do a search on Libby Montana on google if you want to find out more.
