  • About my Cars
    I owned a Datsun Dark Blue 1971 240z from 1977-1982. Bought it for $2400 with 42,000 miles. Never used in winters and eventually sold it June, 1982 after our1st child was born (for the same price I bought it for - $2450 with ~63,000 miles. My 240z interest was renewed as I purchased my 2nd one (Orange) in Oct. of 2006 and my 3rd one (Green) in July of 2007. Both recent 240z's are 1973's, Orange 11/72 and Green 9/72. Moved from MN to NY in '08, sold the Orange 240z and kept Green 1973 240z, HLS30-124668. In 12/2010, purchased my 4th Z, a 370z Sports Package in Black Cherry w/6spd Manual.

  1. Hi. I saw a post from 2015 you made about doing the dash in your Z.  I was curious how your dash held up after 7 years.  Thanks.

  2. View Advert SU Needle Pairs: sets of "SM" , "SB" and "SP" needles $15/Pair I am finally getting around to selling some extra "New" parts from my SU Carb conversion. I bought a variety of SU Needles and have these left over. Shipping cost will be added to purchase price. I'll calculate based on your zipcode. $15 per Pair of Needles plus shipping .... After trying a variety of Needle profiles... I went with "SL" needles which was the closest to the original N27. You can see the profile of this needle on my pdf attachment .. My engine is a stock L24, MSD 6A box, MSD Breakerless Disty and Mallory ProMaster 40kV Coil so my spark is great. Have my NGK BP6ES plugs gaped to 0.062”. Timing set at 13 BTDC @850rpm and 39.5 BTBC @3500rpm (fully advanced). I run 87 octane unleaded (with up to 10% ethanol) and get about ~28MPG highway with great acceleration. These Needle sets are a little richer at the higher RPMS .. which may be great for your tuning and engine configuration. "SM" came with my Ztherapy Carbs , but I needed to go slightly leaner for Mid Range to Top Speed RPMs .. Any questions ... please inquire. Many thanks, Mark.

  4. Hey Crshowers!!! I used TriCity Plating in Tennessee: http://www.tricityplating.com Tri-City Plating E-Mail: [email protected] Address: 218 E Mill St, Elizabethton, TN 37643 Phone: (423) 542-6532 Toll-Free: (800) 251-7536 Fax: (423) 542-9352 I am extremely happy ... they quoted an 8week turn-around ... but actually was about 6weeks after I dropped them off. I drove from Raleigh NC to their facility to hand carry my bumpers to talk with them. They have done a lot of 240z/260z bumpers.... so they know how to straighten and shape them if damaged. Total cost with shipping back to me was ~$900 for just the front & rear (no bumperettes as overider as I had real nice ones ). I pulled off all the rubber ... put some old Hex Nuts on the mounting studs when I dropped them off to assure they taped them up and prevented them from getting plating up. Here are a few picks.... Note the Overrider is original.... and I bought new chrome bolts and stainless hardware for reassemble. I could not find the front and rear bumper rubber strips so I bought some for 260z and made them work. If you need help I can advise if needed what I did ... Good luck and hope this helps ! Happy Holidays .... Mark

I purchased a variety of needle tapers to optimize ZTherapy SU's in my 240z L24 setup - "SM's" were too rich for my engine so I dialed in the carbs nicely so far using "SR" profile needles. I included the Taper profiles(attachment #1) along with the tuning method (Attachment #2, page 11) I used for optimizing efficiency with performance(I also used Colortune but did not have an AFR for real-time mixture readings). I am very happy with the "SR" needle right now as it's just slightly richer than N-27 stock.... the other one actually closer to stock N-27 is the "SL" which I am also keeping.

  7. I bought some thin offsets (~1/8" thick) for the fronts so I didn't have to flatten much the wheel bearing cap. It also allowed the rim to slide over the hub easier. Once I had the offsets centered properly, I used a small amount of plumber putty between the hub and offset to hold them in place for when I remove the wheels so as to not alter their position. These have been great for 10yrs now with no shimmy or vibration when driving at high speeds. Had front end alignment done and good to go! https://www.summitracing.com/search/brand/gorilla-automotive/product-line/gorilla-wheel-spacers/part-type/wheel-spacers?SortBy=Default&SortOrder=Ascending&N=thickness-in%3A0-125-in My 73 has 16x7 Konig Rewinds with 205/55/16's on the front and 215/55/16's on the rear (The rear tires are about 1/2" wider but give me an accurate speedo reading). Love the Konigs, they were much lighter than my cast iron rims that came with the car. Plus easy to clean.

  13. Great on your approach... SU roundtops are great ... ZTherapy does a super job refurbishing and updating them for current fuels.
  14. This looks like a great car , body looks awesome. Just a thought, depending on what your thinking of doing to the car in the long term... with all the engine parts out you may want to consider getting the engine bay painted Blue to match the exterior unless you intend to convert back to original Orange. But in general the car looks really solid and great !!! Keep us posted !!! Did your '73 come with SU Flat Tops? Wonder what your plan is for carbs...
  15. Bump on this thread.... Wanted to let you all know I have extra sets of "SB" (2 sets) and "SM" (1 set) needles. They were too rich for my L24 config so am selling at a good price for anyone who uses them. I am currently using "SL" Needles with very good results... as it's close to the N-27 stock needles. Many thanks......
