  2. It's Running! After reading the last posts I disconnected the line to the fuel filter and blew some compressed air in to it going back to the gas tank. Heard the bubbling in the gas tank. Next I filled both float chambers (I had to order a squeeze bottle that holds fuel and the tube went over the nipple perfectly. The bottle is used for filling RC cars). While I was at it, I filled the fuel filter since I had the line disconnected, figured it wouldn't hurt to help with the priming. I used my wd-40 plastic tube and pushed the floats. They bobbed up and down with no problems. Reconnected the fuel lines hoses and the car started up perfect and runs perfect!!! So I don't know if the floats were stuck and were freed up when adding the gas thru the nipple or if there was just an air pocket in the lines. Thanks everyone for the help and Cliff, great photo and descriptions. You made it real simple for me to follow.
  3. Hi, I have a 1982 Datsun 280XZ with the passenger side headlight washer nozzle that has the same slow leak. The pump is likely the culprit. The reason is that the hose from the pump goes almost straight downward to a "T" where it splits to the left and right headlights. I suspect the reason the right leaks and the left doesn't is because of the long run, relatively, to the right headlight nozzle. There is enough mass to push fluid out of the right nozzle. To validate I took off the pump outlet hose and the pump outlet was leaking. I will purchase a new pump. Did you already figure your out?
  4. My '73 when new in '73 (from a Kodachrome slide that was digitized a couple of years ago) plus s From a 1971 or '72 brochure. Looks like a photo of the '70 steering wheel. (just scanned in today) 3 From a 11-72 brochure for the '73 240Z (scanned today)
  5. Thanks! Yes, once I found the post a few minutes ago that the case was ground and one wire was up and the other wire was down. I had been putting 12V across the two wires in both directions with nothing but a few sparks. Luckily, it doesn't seem to have hurt it and I also see the order of mounting hardware on here which is very helpful.
  6. The cylinder-shaped tip suggests it is for a 260Z or 280Z, but will also fit a 240Z. Good find! Check it out to see if it runs up and down smoothly.

  11. Hey, I bought this as part of a lot of 240Z parts but not sure if or what year(s) Z it is correct for. The number 4030 is the only marking I can see. Thanks for any help. --Thomas

  16. It wasn’t a swap I am not sure exactly what happened I was dumb for not testing it before I put it in the car. I think something just didn’t line up right for some reason. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. If this is a swap, sometimes there are issues with shifter type and trans type. Generally manifest as not fulling engaging some of the gears. the shifter needs to be "clearance" . If the shifter is original to the trans, not an issue. I have heard some problems can happen with 240's as the trans tunnel may need to be clearance again when receiving 5 speeds.
  18. Dropped the trans again took off tail extension and put it back on and it shifts again. I dunno. This time I tried shifting before I put it in the car.. lesson learned Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. @StephenJ I'm sorry I'm unfamiliar with what NLA means. And honestly if you could do that it would be a big help. I looked at the first one, its pins are set up differently on the picture. Is that just a random display image you think, or would i have to find a matching harness and rewire it? It seems z car source has it for $100, ouch. And for the control relay just z car source them and ask right?
  20. I gotta ask, you did try shifting thru the gears before installing it right? What was the initial issue that required the removal of the tail housing?
  21. I am trying to figure out a fair market price for my interior tail light panel that is from my 1/70 240z, #806 VIN car. I have it laying around and don't need it. 1 crack at the mounting tab otherwise it is in good condition. I have it listed in the link below with photos. Any help is appreciated. I currently have it listed for 200 but I am thinking that I have under priced it. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1335561146626439/
  22. @GregP Clarifying my point here because it's bothering me. The fuel valves above the floats can and do get sticky/stuck after sitting. I've bought new ones, to me, that were. My thinking was if those valves aren't opening your fuel has hit a dead end. By filling those bowls the floats should raise and move the needles in close them off. BUT poking the floats with the straw should get them to bounce like a fishing bobber and move those needles. The floats are so close to the wall the straws movement will be minimal, maybe up and down a quarter inch? Best of luck and please share the problem when you get it whipped. Cliff
  23. Just curious. How come it wouldn't fit into your 240? Tranny to car mounts? Tranny to engine match? I'm trying to restore a 240. My dream is to replace L24 drive train of the 240 with the L28 drive train of a 280. Drive train (engine & transmission)
