Who wants to help me out? (parts query...)

Hello all! i'm in the process of getting my car back up and running, but am having a bit of trouble sourcing some parts for my build. i'm on a pretty tight budget, but what i'm looking for is the following.

radiator (that will fit my 240Z)

5 speed trans (in good operational order, needs no bearings replaced, and including the speedo gear)

and the last item isn't really necessary to get my car up and running, but it is necessary for my speedo to be correct - 280Z R200 moustache bar.

if anyone has these parts and wants to be rid of them, i will gladly take them! i'm trying to stay within $300 for the lot, since i still need to acquire a few easier to find parts as well.

thanks again guys, and please lemme know if you can help!

I am looking at another parts car right now, haven't quite come to terms with the seller yet. But it has a good original style 240Z radiator, as well as an R200 and all the necessary bits there for. Should know if I get it by this weekend.

FYI - I didn't get the parts car I was looking at. While I was weighing the options, some one else apparently bought it. :disappoin

It's probably for the best. While i could have easily at least broken even on it, the fact is that there just wasn't a lot of parts on it that I need for the yellow car. A few, but not all that many. So it probably wasn't the right car for me at this time. Which was probably why I didn't move very fast on it. Still keeping my eyes open though.

I would reccommend making sure you get a three row radiator. Mine is made by csf radiators and it has been great. They are very knowledgeable and will ship it right to your door. Mine bolted right up with no problems. I think mine was like $189. It's been about three years ago though. Their site is csfimports.com. Hope this helps.

rex - see you tomorrow!

will - do you know the weight of the moustache bar (and packaging dimensions, roughly) so that i can figure out shipping? also, would you be willing to pull a speedo gear arse'y from one of your 5 speeds (for 3.7 ratio)?

everyone else - i've decided that if i cannot find a tranny locally, i am going to spend the $130 (and weeks of reading and labor) on a rebuild kit for my current tranny.

since rex is local and has a radiator for me, we can knock that off the list!

also, thank you so much for your willingness to help me out. it's GREATLY appreciated....

another update - i'm going to buy the 280ZX alternator through autozone and use my externally regulated on as the core. i'm also buying the clutch collar from MSA for 19.77.

so assuming that all goes well with the moustache bar and speedo gear from Will and the radiator from Rex, i should be all set! (UNLESS anyone near by has a 5 speed so i don't have to do my first attempt at rebuilding a tranny.... wink wink...)

Jason, did you get that bar yet? I don't have an extra one but I just pulled an R200 off a 280z at Pick Your Part, and I know there are a half dozen more down there. Hold off just a wee bit on the R200 swap, and next time the San Diego Z club has a dumpster diving day down there, we'll pull a moustache for you. You buy me lunch tho. :)
