Let’s find built date of jack and tire stopper

    Recommended Posts

    Hi,  have we discussed about this before?

    I want to know the answer of these coding.

    Each jack  has alphabetical code,

    I have a jack ,

    ’ P. C. E ‘ 

    Could it be made 1970 March 5th ? 

    This jack is in my 03/1970 240Z.

    And olso the car has ‘ 0.  C ‘  stamp on a tire stoppers , I guess it could be 1970. March.

    I saw a 09/1970 car has 

    ‘ P  H  Y’ , this means  1970  August 25th ?

    This car still has a paper list in a tool bag, 

    with a stamp ‘ 45   9   10’ ( 1970  September 10th)

    And I found some 1969 cars have ‘ O ‘ for 

    their jack,  

    O  I   A  , 1969 September 1st ?

    O  G  S ,  1969 June  19th ?

    These cars have these on their tire stopper s. 

    ‘  9.  I ‘  1969  September?

    ’ 9   K  ‘  1969  November?

    How about these , I think

    Tire stopper,  

    0. G.  1970. July

    2   E    1972   May

    ‘C ‘  is stamped, however ‘ G ‘ is engraved, so the change would be happened around April to June 1970 .

    Jack ,

    Q. F.  V.  1971. June 21st 

    R  E  DD   1972 May  30th 

    Somewhere around 1971 , jack has changed its comportments . Early one has unique contact piece and only two rivers applied to hold the basement while later ones has four .

    If this is true,  ‘ A’  means 1954 . At that time

    Nissan was making Datsun sports DC-3 .

    I think this is one of the easiest way to guess when my car had left from the factory. 

    And it is nice to have ‘ munching numbers ‘

    those factory items.

    How about yours ?

    Hi Kats.  Great job finding more  potential date codes!  I will check what I have this weekend and see if they match the pattern you identified.

    Ok Kats, this is what I have using your codes:

    Jacks: 

    OCH - March 8, 1969

    OIA - Sept 1, 1969

    OKB - Nov 2, 1969

    OLA - Dec 1, 1969

    OLA? - Dec 1, 1969  (this one is difficult to read the 2nd and 3rd letters, so this is my best guess)

    PFX - June 24, 1970

    RDM - April 13, 1972

    RDN - April 14, 1972

    REL - May 12, 1972

    RFQ - June 17, 1972

    TLCC - Dec ??, 1974

    Wheel chocks:  Note I was looking for only for the black ink stamps not the punched letters .  I only have a couple with the black ink stamps, so will have to look for punched letters the next time I go to my garage

    9J - Dec 1969

    9L - Oct 1969

    Thank you so much Mike !  !

    You have so many jacks, just amazing.

    Are they all come from your cars ? If so, 

    Do you think my coding will work or not ?Does each car have each corresponding jack ? 

    Rubber stamps on the wheel chokes are so cool , they are 1969 pieces !

    Many thanks,

    Kats

    My jack is stamped S D X, which is April 24 1973 if I'm doing the decode correctly. 

    My car build date is 12/70 and I know that the engine was swapped to a '73 sometime before I bought it.  So it looks like the jack helps date the engine, if it came from the same car.

    Interesting thread @kats I have a pair of wheel stops  0 B and a set of O D

    The jack in my 70 was a newer one R 1 T

    I also have a jack from a 3/70 which I can't make out the letters.

    An interesting observation is the two are different lengths. I was going to swap out my newer jack for the older and it would not fit.

    Also I was working on my window regulator today and saw it had a date stamp as well  0 4 I

    My friend Mr. Shimoura has a super clean genuine Fairlady 240 ZG  (9/ 1972),

    we checked her pockets and there you go, matching numbers jack and choke !

    You can see R. I. G. on the jack, “1972 September 7th “

    And 2. I. on the choke, “1972. September “

    Please note the seat, from September 1972, interior materials were changed to “ flame retardant” , this made the seats looked slightly different from former design and shape.

    Does anyone can sell his/her a set of 9K or 9L or 0A choke ?

    I am asking this for my Jan 1970 Z432.

    I found my Z432 has 0G which is Jul 1970.

    I can sell or trade my 0G chokes.

    Hi !

    Here is my Dec 1971 240Z, I am now very for sure our decoding is correct, 

    The tire chockes “ 1 K “ (71 Nov)

    The jack “ Q. K. C. C “ (. 71 Nov 29th )

    What does  “ D “ on the wheel nut wrench mean ? 

    I stowed them “ as directed “ into the bin.

    Tomorrow I will drive this orange 240Z from my mother’s house to my house , 550 miles trip !

    Hi , today I would like to show this, a set of 9 K chocks . They are provided by Jim , Zup here . Thank you so much Jim , I am so glad that the perfect matching date chocks are in my Z432’s tool bin !! 

    I took pictures, thank you !

    PS : you see the extra tools in the picture, 

    a monkey wrench and a tire pressure gauge. They are my choice , I imagined when first  owner bought the car , he would have chosen those tools from a Nissan dealer as an optional item .

    Other tools are STD for Z432 .

    I have never seen “ box wrench “ ,

    ” set drivers “ , etc .

    One thing I want to tell you is , Fairlady Z parts catalogs never showen those tools in it. And also they do not have a section of “ audio “ and “ key “ , as well as “ model NO . Plate “ etc. I attached pictures which are never indicated in the Fairlady Z parts catalogs.

    I am still wondering how did they take an order from customer without those descriptions in their book ? This is my biggest question about the Fairlady Z parts catalogs.

    Now it is my turn , I will give my "0 G " (to be Jul 1970) chocks to someone , just like Jim did it for me . If someone needs it , please let me know.

    I noticed variation of the sticker , my Dec 1971 and Jun 1972 cars have the sticker which shows single picture for how to stow .

    But other cars like late 1972 and 1973 cars have the sticker which shows triple step for how to stow .

    One more befor go to bed , this set of tools 

    is belonging to a 260Z sold in UK ,  just gorgeous, plenty of tools. This full set of tools is just like Nissan Cedric,  a luxury sedan . Please note the Nissan hamburger marks does not have  “ Nissan “ in it . This will be a sign that this car would build late 1973  or later .

    Hi ,

    Here is another kind Z friend , Mike B gave me this wheel nut wrench which is the best combination for 01/ 1970 Z432.

    It has only a Nissan hamburger   , and simply showing an alphabet “ I “ . My 03/1970 240 Z has the same wrench and it has “ J “ on it.

    And a teeth for the removing hub cap is pointing different, early one is facing same direction as the nut socket .

    I think later one has  like this  , “ NISSAN  ( NISSAN hamburger  ) MOTOR  “  

    My 06/1972 240ZG has  “27 “ on it , what does this numbers mean ?

    And Mike rent me tools contents papers  , early one has colored Nissan hamburger !! I have never seen it before .

    I will make replica of them for Datsun 240 Z and Fairlady Z , and Z432 . They are different each other due to tools line up .

    Thanks Mike B !!

    Hi , 

    this is not related “ build date “ but I found this wooden grip reversible driver is bare wood , I mean not covered by clear lacquer. This is found in a May 1972 tool bag for Nissan Blue Bird ( 510 ) .

    Dec 1969 Z432 has a lacquercoat wooden grip , so there would be a difference between them , early has lacquercoat , later does not .

    Kats, and others. Thanks for this info. My jack has the same birthday as your friend Shimoura San.

    R.I.G - “1972 September 7th “  This dates well to the approx car manufacture date of the Fairlady Z Serial number S30100698

    Nice to know it is likely the original

    The chock is from a later donor car (I know the PO used some parts from another 1973 240z in making some repairs). 3B = 1973 March

    Hi scotta , thanks to add more examples,

    now you need to find 2 I for your chocks.

    What a coincidence, I will look up Shimoura -san ‘s chassis number when I visit him next time.

    Here is the tool list for my 1973 240Z.  Production date on the car is 10/72 - only one month after Kat's friend Mr. Shimoura's Fairlady 240 ZG  (9/ 1972) .  The "date stamp" is 45, 10, -3 , which, if I understand the system correctly means 1972, October 3rd - which matches the build date of my car very closely. 

    My jack and tools are with the parts at Motorman7s place.  I'll get details of those next time i'm visiting my car.

    Thanks jayhawk , you are so lucky that you have a paper with your car .

    Yes 47 . 10 .  -3. means 1972 , October 3rd . Could you let us know what date does your jack have ? I am curious about which date is earlier , jack or paper ? I think a paper must have date later than a jack , because a stamp on a paper means “ Inspected “ . 

    I think the date is shown on the paper is very close to the end of assembling, as well as a set of carpets . They are easy to make for the manufacturer, so seems no need to make a huge pile of them , what do you think of it?

    My orange 240Z has a jack 1971 November 29th ( Q K CC ) , while its carpets has 1971 November 15th ( 1 K 15  15 , I don’t know what means the last 15 , maybe 15 o’clock? ) . Unfortunately, my orange 240Z lost its paper .

    To imagine assembling line in the factory is very fun .
