240z fuel and brake line insulator sets and steering rack expansion reservoir

    Recommended Posts

    Each 240z fuel and brake line insulator was reproduced in a urethane plastic on a milling machine, which made for a very high quality master insulator. Each insulator is then cast in a two part high quality silicone mold.

    The insulators are cast in a urethane rubber with a shore hardness of 70A. The urethane has been degassed in a vacuum chamber, then cast and cured in a pressure pot for 24hrs. After curing for 24hrs the insulator have been heated to 150deg for 8 hrs for post-curing.

    It takes two day to make one complete set of insulators.

    70-72 has 15 large insulators, 6 brake line insulators and 4 flow guide valve insulators.

    73 have 14 large insulators, 6 brake line insulators and 4 flow guide valve insulators.

    Insulator sets are available in either the auto or manual transmission 240z.

    The price for a complete set of insulators is $150.00 plus $6 shipping inside the usa, on a limited few sets, then Zeddsaver.com will be selling the sets via the website at a higher price.

    Reproduced a steering rack expansion reservoir, in a beige color, for the 70 and early 71 240z with a 12mmx1.0 threads. This is a solid piece without a reservoir; this is for nostalgia look only. This was reproduced in a urethane resin that cures to a solid plastic with a shore hardness of 83D beige color.

    Make sure you have the 12mmx1.0 opening on your steering racks since later models either have a 10mmx1.0 or no hole.

    The Price is $14.00 plus $6 shipping inside the usa.

    Hey Steve,

    Did you happen to make or can you make the line insulator sets for the early series one cars without the evaporative emissions controls?

    Thanks,

    Not sure how the emission controls affect or are related to the fuel line and return line insulators, if anyone could give any feedback or comment, that might help answer the question.

    I dug through my parts bins and found what's left of the old insulators from my early 70' series one car. They look the same as the rest of the years but only have three holes. Here's a pic for reference:

    The Early 1970 3 holes insulators are now available to order as a complete set. These will be made to order and will take 1 week to produce.

    Remember these are cast insulators not hand cut and drilled insulators.

    Another item reproduced, its the rear hatch stopper rubber insulator. This one was milled out of Delrin and cast into a 2 piece mold.

    This is the correct replacement for your old worn out rubber. It even has the two little side parts that are on the original ones. The new ones come in a cream color and these are the correct black color.

    These are not hand cut or drilled, these are from a two part mold just like all the other insulators.

    Sorry just the rubber not the metal stopper.

    Clarification on this part.

    The original part numbers are:

    76837-E4100 & 76838-E4100 WEATHERSTRIP-SIDE WI this type was longer, which was replaced with 76837-N3400 & 76838-N3400 WEATHERSTRIP-SIDE WI ( Shorter type, this is what I reproduced)

    Then replaced with 76837-N4500 & 76838-N4500 WEATHERSTRIP-SIDE WI This is the newer type from nissan which covers the entire quarter window, with the screws.

    This is the shorter type that also comes with a 1/4" filler piece that is glued in place, just like from the factory.

    PM me if you have any questions.

    It may be a good idea to make a variant of that bumper so that it stops the window higher. The top of the glass should just stop with the top edge of the squeegee so that it is held firmly at the top by Mr. fuzzy, Mr. squeegee and Mr. roller. This prevents rattling of the glass if it were wound down further.
