  1. Hi all, I appreciate your patience as I ran through a number of updates to our site today. The system was offline for approx 4-5 hours as I went through the system and made these updates. There was a pretty big backlog and I ran through everything in a single swoop. As always, please let me know if you see anything that isn't working right (or just looks funny). Thank you! Mike

  3. So I finally got my engine/drivetrain how I want it, now it's time to make a mockery of auto body work. 1st time prepping/painting a car. I got some booth time and a bit of mentoring for some primer. It's a Bondo machine that's for sure. I'm not trying to win any beauty pageants, just have some fun. I'll be happy if it's a 10 footer. Not much can be worse than it was before.

  4. I got the whole car seam sealed and yesterday put 2 coats of high build primer on everything, so far all the panels are looking pretty smooth but I'll find out this morning when I get the guide coat on it. One good thing about the Covid situation is I'm getting a lot of work on the car done.

  5. Thanks guys. Slow progress but any progress right now is good. Cody wants to try to take it to Zcon in Colorado. He'll be 21 that week

  6. So let me tell you a little story... Some time last summer, maybe June, we had a professional uphostery shop do Cody's headliner. They did a wizz poor job! Headliner made from scratch. Fabric was too thick, seams weren't great, sloppy install. It took forever for them to do it. Then we took it back to have them work on some problem areas. A few weeks later the glue was all letting loose. Panels all starting come loose around the window frames. We just cut our loses... So I ordered a headliner off Ebay. It came in. We strung it up but it was too small. So I sent it back. I bought

  7. Hi all, For those of you who like to browse the website at night, from bed, or in a dark room -- I've added a new dark mode to the site. This mode is easier on the eyes when browsing in these conditions. I especially like it when I'm on my tablet and the bright backgrounds from our default page is just too much for my eyes to handle. You can choose the dark mode by changing the "Theme" at the bottom of the page. I've gone through most of the colors to make sure they work in this mode. But, if you find an example of a color match that doesn't look right, please take a screensh

  10. It's a spoiler I bought used from http://www.new-datsun-parts.com/datsun-510-parts.html With the valance off the car the spoiler doesn't seem to fit very well but the valance does get bent into a more curved shape when mounted so I'm hoping it fits together properly when mounted. I thought perhaps it was for another car but it does look the same as pics I have found on Google and the vendor says it is correct for a 510, besides, I don't think I have ever fit a spoiler that actually just bolted up easily.

  11. @AK260 @Racer X this has been a topic in computing for a while see https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master/slave_(technology) We stopped using ‘master’ to denote our ‘development’ software. We use ‘develop’ now to indicate that it’s the primary branch. We also stopped using blacklist/whitelist. Instead we use inclusion-list, exclusion-list. Which is more straightforward and explicit in the name. I personally use primary/secondary to denote the hierarchy of coupled devices. ah yes clutches, I have a thread here for part references for the setup that AK is talking

  12. I agree with the other guys, new clutch disc and cover, throw out bearing and pilot shaft bushing, resurface the flywheel. Also, the machine shop that balances the rotating assembly should also include the flywheel and clutch cover, and the vibration damper/crank pulley when balancing everything, and mark the flywheel/clutch cover and crank hub so it can all be reassembled in the orientation it was in when balanced.

  13. To me it will always be master and slave. But for the overly sensitive types, perhaps primary and secondary, or actuator and actuatee, or . . . . . . . . . . . nah, screw it. The thing that forces the fluid is the master, the thing that responds to the fluid pressure the slave.

  14. Its been sometime since I posted. Finally getting back to work on the car. The engine and transmission is in!! Goal is to drive this summer! I realized I am missing a prop shaft bolt. Can I use a regular Hex bolt or does it have to have the square side like this one?

  15. That said, I think some of the colors on the dark mode setting needs some work. I'll be going through this as I find more colors or things to make it easier to read. If you run into anything please send a screenshot and let me know what you see or how it should look anyway. m

  16. I just changed a setting to make the width stretch to the size of the browser window. It should be ok now. Ah, I was wondering because I was editing things yesterday. if you can use dark mode now, all good.... mike

  18. Too much white space. Google did the same with their news. It is unbearable. Made for phone GUIs suck. If you can't afford a computer or bigger screen, you should not have a car. Phones are for lazy people. People who like to see the internet on a small screen are not evolved.

  19. It does look great, I have a headliner from Goliners for the 510 coupe hanging on my wall trying to get the wrinkles out, I haven't actually measured it yet so maybe I should.

  20. Having this tooth log complete was euphoric after 2 weeks of troubleshooting and trying different wiring, I even extended the shielding (wire + aluminum envelop) to reach the CAS connector as I thought I had noise hiding some teeth. So to anyone using aftermarket Crank Angle Sensor (onesixindustries in particular), always open it and check the VR sensor vs. wheel gap, even in a brand new part that is supposed to be quality controlled, and also blow some air to remove any metal dust... Before: After: Also, I understood how the IAC valve is linked to the inlet por

  21. To add my two cents: I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my Fidanza flywheel and exedy clutch! I think they do a great package on eBay but just check you are getting the right one for your car ... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EXEDY-CLUTCH-KIT-06029-w-FIDANZA-FLYWHEEL-for-70-75-DATSUN-240Z-260Z-2-4L-2-6L-/324528069103?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286 And I have to echo the sentiments - replace all the bits that wear out and you’ve done it once!! Having said that, I didn’t replace my slave cylinder as I preferred the original part to the new one I had bought! Somehow it felt better built. We’re no longer allowed

  22. Also I was looking at the stainless trim for the windshield and some of it is damaged, the bottom piece especially. Does anyone have some they would like to part with? @zKars @Terrapin Z

  30. I can't imagine not replacing all the clutch parts, including the slave cyl. and the pilot shaft bushing while you are in there. I always buy a "clutch kit" so that it all works together as it should. Mixing parts from different models/years can get you in trouble. Lot's of info here about what to avoid.

  31. My experience was quite the opposite when it came to the Flat Tops While some like to debate the technical merits of the Flat Tops - one thing is not debatable. From the introduction of the 1973 240Z’s with the Flat Top Carb’s needed to met the EPA Exhaust Emissions Standards - Dealers were plagued with Customer Complaints accompanied by Datsun 240Z’s being returned to the Dealerships on a Tow Hook. Something never before experienced and most certainly never expected. The 240Z and indeed DATSUN had established a well deserved reputation for Reliability second to none.

  32. Hey guys, I was thinking about drawing up some Datsun Specific instructions for these. Is that something anyone would be interested in? I started modeling some reference 3D files for my own sake. Can anyone confirm this is the stack up for the fronts?

  33. Looking at the pics it looks like the clutch disc lining is worn down to the tops of the rivets. I see what I think is a few shiny rivets. If it's down to polishing the rivets, it's time to replace it along with the release bearing and pilot bushing. And, "as long as you're in there" having the flywheel resurfaced or even lightened.

  34. Go ahead and replace it I say. The Exedy is a great choice. I have one in both my Zs. https://www.amazon.com/EXEDY-06009-OEM-Replacement-Clutch/dp/B001B5D7TE

  35. I Disassembled headlight switch,turn signal switch and hazard switch to give them a nice cleaning and a little lube. Removed the wire connectors and replaced them. When I replaced connectors I moved the spade connectors for like the flasher and moved it into the new connector. I feel this makes things a little cleaner. I also removed all brake light wires from switches. installed new headlight connectors and sealed them with 3 to 1 shrink warp. I scored with a new left headlamp assy. I also order flasher connectors from Vintage connections. I think this makes it nice.If you do this mak
