  1. Hallo, ich war lange nicht hier.

    Hast du denn bis jetzt einen Wagen gefunden. Im Moment nehme ich mir viel zu wenig zeit für meinen Datsun. Aber wenn die Kinder was größer sind wird das wieder.

    Grüße Rainer

  2. You will find the answer if you contact Uwe, see post nr.2# Good luck Rainer
  3. Welcome to the german z car scene. your car looks nice,solid and original. What is your future plan ? Greetings to the lake constance. Rainer
  4. Happy new year to everybody. I've got an interesting offer from somebody in Germany(soest) who must sell his unfinished projetct with many extra parts. He mentioned a price of 2000€, what sounds interesting to me. But I do not know the car. If someody in Europe is interested, shoot me an PM. Cheers Rainer
  5. Hi Fixitman, I had the same problem. The brackets who hold the sway bar bushings, were bended up. This was caused by the car jack. Good luck Rainer from Germany
  6. Hello, looks very good. What did you pay for it ? Cheers Rainer from Germany
  7. Hello Bart what's going on ? Why you want to sell your project ? Cheers Rainer
  8. Hello Greddy, There is a meeting in Germany around 1 of May, but I don't know if it's worth to ride more than 1000Km. Because most of the times you will meet only 3 or 4 classic 240/260Z. You will see that the europeen scene is changing at the moment . The old scene is not intersted that hard anymore , and most of them have one or more a unfinished project. The interest has changed to family or other things. But the new Scene is growing fast, they are intersted in old classic cars. How many Km you would drive ? Cheers Rainer
  9. Hello Bart, the world is a village. Und US condition we are neigbours (less 10 miles) Are you comming from Tegeln too ? I have a comfortable amount of documentation. Anyway most of the sunroofes are not original, and everybody wan't to remove it. But forget to weld a sheet metal in. Look for a complet roof. Look at Marktplaats.nl 136855337 it's a very good deal ! Groetjes Rainer
  10. Hello Greddy, Nice car. Where did you find the spare parts ? Is this this the only Z in Lithuania ? Good luck for the future Rainer from Germany
  11. Hello Bart, what a never ending body work. Your pictures remember me on mull. from Norway http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFPc6VCnHSc&NR Where are you living in Holland ? Probrobably I can help you with the microfiche. Send me your adress with a pm. Cheers Rainer (Living near Venlo)
  12. Hello Juergen, very nice and clean car ! Are you part of the old german Z scene ?(Klaus and Fred from Munich). Greetings from Niederrhein. Rainer
  13. Hello Doug, I'm building a triple weber engine at the moment,and I was thinking about the same Problem. Most people disable vac advance, because the vac will not match to your dizzy anymore. To reach +/- 35 ,you need a basic advance near 20 degree, what has disadvantages for idle and start. I have found the ideal solution, at the moment I'm collecting the parts. A Megajolt controller and Ford Edis wasted spark system.This Edis system is very common on Megasquirt fuel Systems. But here it works stand alone. http://www.autosportlabs.net/images/0/0d/Mjlj_main_screen_connected.png Cost 200-250 $ What you need. EDIS-6 Coilpack +module (ebay/junkyard) new wires Controller trigger wheel. Here is some info http://forums.hybridz.org/showthread.php?t=113165 http://www.autosportlabs.com/ http://search-desc.ebay.com/search/search.dll?sofocus=bs&sbrftog=1&catref=C6&from=R10&mppfqy=edis&mppfqy=edis&_trksid=m37&satitle=megajolt+6&sacat=-1%26catref%3DC6&fts=2&fmmk=&fmmd=&fylo=&fyhi=&mppfqy=megajolt&sargn=-1%26saslc%3D2&sadis=200&fpos=47669&sabfmts=1&saobfmts=insif&ftrt=1&ftrv=1&saprclo=&saprchi=&fsop=34%26fsoo%3D2 Cheers Rainer from Germany
  14. Hello From Germany, welcome to the club. There is a very nice small 240z scene here in Germany. In September you will see some of them on the japan classisc in essen (wybi.com). When you need some 2. opinions about buying a z car we can help you. I live near Venlo on the dutch border and a friend is living in Marl. Cheers Rainer
  15. Hello A.J how about the pressure under your cover ? Is your valvecover bleeder line still connected ? Are your piston rings still o.k ? My daily car is a V6 tdi audi, and a very common cause for oil leaks is a clogged filter in the bleeder valve. Good luck Rainer
  16. Hello to all, I installed now a catalytic converter instead of my pre muffler. It's the best modification I made. 90 € And now the car doesn't have any exhaust fumes in every condition. . Sound and power hasn't changed too. But I agree that the first step should be to finetune the carbs. Best wishes Rainer
  17. Hello Brad, I had the same, after replacing the shifter bushings it was gone. Search ebay for datsun and shifter. Cheers Rainer
  18. Hello, I have mixed experience with new bushings. I replaced most of them on my street car. But later I changed the mustache bar bushing back to OEM. (>140 $:mad: ) due to the noise. http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17663 I'm not happy with my urthean steering coupler too. I believe that he will cause some vibration in my steering at 80mph. But unfortunatly I do not have the old one anymore.:stupid: Cheers Rainer
  19. Hello thanks for the feedback, of cause I would go for the not regulated version. Everything else is too complicated. And It should look quite original. But the suggested carb is exact what is in my mind and it's easy to replace by for the premuffler. The only question is, does it reduce the exhaust fumes ? The fumes with open windows after a stop at the traffic light, are really weird. 20 year ago this was normal, but today we that we can do it better . Maybe there is some experience from 280Z's who removed their cat converter? Cheers Rainer
  20. Hello USA, does nobody retrofited a cat on 240Z or 260 Z ? Cheers from Germany Rainer
  21. Hello, does anybody use a cat converter on a SU powered 240/260Z, or has experience ? I will improve my exhaust fumes, and it will be easy, to reach the emisions test once a year. Thanks Rainer
  22. Very nice, the antenna remembers my at auto scooter. Rainer
  23. Hello Thomas, greeting from germany to germay. I have a new one for you. I 'll shoot you a PM. Cheers Rainer
  24. Congratulations, was it a new one ? Hope to see your car in Swiss. Rainer
