Datsun-240z Vs Fairlady-z432


Recommended Posts

Previous one has gold plated shift arm, new one's is black.

I think original color is cream white for the arm.

Once the spacer was located as a service manual yesterday, then I told a mechanic disregard last my request, get back just like as it was soon after I saw Alan posted here, thank you Alan.

Gas leakage was found on the center maffler , must be welded soon. 

And I changed a shift boot 3 times for this Z432. My 1970 240Z has still the one was new in 2000. Too much heat ? Or oil leakage damaged the rubber?

Replacing job has completed , the mechanic in the photo is Mr.Okajima , he is young but very skilled man.His toy is 1974 Ken-meri Skyline.

I recommend maintenance at Nissan is very good  if there is a mechanic who has good experience of an old car

They let me use some tools to disassemble the previous transmission, they are very generous for amateurs.

This project was started to find a reason of oil leak around the center maffler. 

I noticed a steel tube which is working with clutch release bearing was loosen and turning.

and two pins under the shift control arm, O rings did not do their job, so a lot of oil leaked from there.

Center maffler and rear maffler were painted, Pitwork brand heat proof silver is the most duarable paint I think.

Please note exhaust tube cramps , there are two types, one hole and . two holes.

Z432-R  BRACKET-horn ,

Alan, I was not for sure its part number while we were talking about, but I was feeling I might see it before.

And here it is, I found it in Air-conditioning section. There is no illustration , only a description.

It does not indicate for "PZR" , it says "(op.) ALL" , but we see E7200 as a model designation.

I think this bracket was originally made for PZR( Z432-R) because it has got E7200 as a part number.

We need to see more examples to confirm its true shape.

Hello Kats,

Excellent detective work! I was looking in the earlier parts lists, so I didn't see the number there. Clearly they missed a few things out from the first versions and included them in the later editions. I feel happier about bending my horn mount brackets to clear the PZR oil cooler now... 

Was great to see you at Oppama on Saturday, and then again yesterday at the Club S30 20-year meeting. Always so fun and interesting to talk with you, and so happy to see your car again. I hope you got home OK after that long drive.  

Best wishes,
Alan T.

Zcar fiesta at Oppama factory

I spent wonderful time with so many Zcar owners .Total 900miles driving was pretty happy , but on the way home was in a heavy rain, my Z432 likes rain...

 Mr. Matsuo is doing well , he said he and some design teem members made a world round trip just after finishing S30 styling ( it was late 1968) . Nissan gave this prize to designers who's work became production model. The trip for visiting world's famous motor show.

That was a special treatment , Mr. Matsuo was not for sure that his request was accepted or not, because usually a few motor shows were considered . But he made a bid, he requested Paris , London, Frankfurt, Milano,  Newyork  and the last one  was Los Angels. His request was accepted!

Mr.Matsuo met Mr.K in LA , he showed a photo of 2+2 prototype to Mr.K , Mr.K was amaized about it but he was told "forget about making 2+2 for now , I want the 2 seater as soon as possible! "

PS The green S30 and the gentleman next to it is Mr. Kawashima, he rebuilt transmission for my Z432.

Kats, that's some serious Z porn there.  I am in the last stages of a complete refurbish of my 72 and will be posting the entire process soon.  It has been a labor of love and I am fortunate to have the assistance of Rolly the " Zombie" Alberto personally assisting my endeavor.

Rolly is one of the foremost authorities on 4-6 cylinder engines and has built and raced some of the best cars while in the Philippines.  He builds drifters and can get every available HP out of his engines.  He is in Houston now and watching him work is like watching Rembrandt paint.  

Can't wait to post the result for the Z community.

Nice pictures Kats. Is there any information on how many 432 S30''s are left and who owns them ?

Hi, we can see the current number of its exsistance, Mr. Watanabe 's website,

http://z432.sakura.ne.jp/newpage10.html

At 06 NOV 2016 , total 140 ( 129 Z432 + 11 Z432-R) Z432s are confirmed of its exsistance. 

In his website , Z432 and Z432-R means the car has ''PS 30 ''

prefix on the chassis number.

We saw some S20 engined S30 body cars, also some PS30 cars which are not listed yet . I hope it reaches up to 50 % of its production number, looking at TOYOTA 2000GT is remaining 80-90 % of its production. 

Kats

PS : A Z432-R is now on sale , I had not seen a Z432-R for sale long time , what price is this real one ?

one item I ordered from Black Dragon Auto and plan on keeping for a while, is their hardcopy magazine of items that were available for the Z cars. Reason being: The catalog has expanded views of item parts for the car with name and the location the item goes. easy to use for reference when trying to remember a part name or where it goes exactly

Thank you everyone , I will report when I actually see it. 

And , this morning a new , never used S20 cylinder block sold for 3151000 ( approx. 28000 USD) !

The block has only ''S20'' , no serial number on it .  And on the side wall it has   72  7  5    41  , 

It seems to me manufactured July 5th 1972 ( I have no idea 41 stands for ) .

The seller is the same guy who sold the NIB head, NIB crankshaft .

Hi Kats,

 

On the first page there are two interesting photos that you posted. Can you share more about the cars and activities?

The coloured photo seems to show a 510 with a RHD and LHD S30. The LHD seems to have unusual mirrors?  Typical LHD rear view mirror on door and two fender/wing mirrors. Do you know when and where the photo was taken and why the extra mirrors?

double mirror.jpg 

FYI: Here is another early LHD running in Japan in ~1969 but w/o the extra mirrors?

24-00 lhd in japan.jpg

 

What are the LHD race start tests for and when were they done? (One has hub caps, spoiler and antenna, the other is less endowed).

Thanks and best wishes in 2017!
