  2. @siteunseen, are these the parts you bought? (FYI, I have the original 240z S30 2.4 liter engine) Header: https://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic19d/15-6012CH Exhaust: https://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic19d/15-6309 Gasket: this is the exact gasket I just bought last month... I may just leave it on and salvage it. https://zcardepot.com/products/manifold-gasket-intake-exhaust-oem-240z-260z-70-74?_pos=3&_sid=ee7b757b0&_ss=r

  3. Here's the MSA 6-1 header installed on my engine. The flange thickness is a perfect match for the intake manifolds.

  5. I think it was something most European counties demanded. Demark and Switzerland also had the front indicators above the bumper. They looked like an afterthought. Looks like something the local dealer would use. "We have these units for farm tractor mudgaurds. Maybe they will fit". Funny thing is if you import a 240Z from the USA with the indicators under the front bumper and the original number plate light above the number plate, you don't need to change it to the Dutch standard to pass the roadworthy inspection. You only need to disconnect the side indicators and change the headlam

  6. Got lucky again with this car. The rear mag nuts were not happy about coming off AT ALL. I was not using the best impact socket, and it managed to round over the flats on the nut. Yes I have a wonderful cordless Milwaukee M18 impact. I had to go get my left hand thread wheel nut remover to do it. Had to resort to a 4” cheater to get it turning, then finished with the impact. Here it is after removing the extractor. Next pic has an original nut for comparison. Pretty great extractor socket that bit and didn’t break with the 4-500 lbs of cheater pipe torque. It’s been ground do

  10. Here you can see 2 other differences besides the 2 little rubber studs where on a US bumper sits the bumperettes.. 1) The spoiler was standard on a Dutch 240z with also the plastic letters "240z"on the left and "Datsun" on the right. 2) The special for the Netherlands numberplate lighting on the bumper (yes a Dutch RDW (DMV) Rule) in chrome with 2 glasses and fittings in chrome caps! These extensions are very rare! The upper numberplatelights had no fittings or lights in them!! It just sat there.

  13. I can (as a Dutchie) tell some more about those odd things on the front bumper.. My first resto of a 240z was in 1991, by then the cars were 20 years old and i could still get all the original parts at my local dealer, after a while i was like a employee at the Nisssan dealer and could order all the parts i wanted myself on the microfiche system (remember computers were not used for the early car types.) I bought then many new 240z parts also the front blinkers, they came in beautiful chrome, and.. are on my 240z till this day! The reason for them was the Dutch RDW (sort of DM

  14. There are at least 2 styles of fender (wing) mirrors. A rectangular one seems common in Australia yet a rounder one in Japan: And the triple mirror mystery (3 types):

  15. The car A/C was removed in 2008 and at the moment no stock pulley are available apparently, so I decided to got with an ATI harmonic Damper. If I eventually reinstall the AC I will get a pulley with double grove or study further a rebuilt (thanks for the idea), but shipping to US + rebuild + shipping to Dubai would probably cost more than a new one again...

  16. Nice rivet design ! Glad I can contribute in a way to help others ! Also super happy with the results ! Gotta say I was majorly inspired by Singer, but especially here in the sand pit, your butt/back eventually sweats a lot on leather seats, so fabric+rivets are an attempt to reduce this.

  19. Here is a 240z in Brussels in Jan 1970. It shows up again in London in October. It has the fender mirrors and only 2 side markers. Here is 240z in Geneva in March 1970. No fender mirror and 4 side markers. Here is the same as the Brussels one above. This one is in Amsterdam in 1971 with rear spoiler and probably just 2 side markers. It would be nice to see what is going on with the fenders. It looks a lot like your photo and is the same year and continent 🙂 Note it has no rear bumperettes and the rubb

  20. Well, Racer mentioned it and now that it's off the car, the header does have some significant issues on the flatness from one end to the other. In particular the front most exhaust flange is pretty much worn away. I could have my friend braze another lip around it and then try to grind appropriately, but I don't think I'll get it within tolerance that way. Or could have a competent machinist, but that'd probably be a lot more hassle and maybe even higher cost than just buying a new header. Ugh. Wish I would have known what to check before paying to have it ceramic coated. I think one of
