  1. Why bend the float arm to compensate for inaccurate readings. If you look closely at the float arm pivot point, you will see a small set screw. This set screw, when loosened, would allow you to change the sweep of the float arm in relation to the pickup contacts thus changing the tank fuel level readings.
  2. Here are some posts from an archived thread started by Kats, whom I consider one of this sites authorities when discussing the S30’s restoration. Dan
  4. I believe you are correct. The left and right pieces go in the driver and passenger foot wells. The T-shapes piece goes under the seat. There should be two of these, one under each seat. The two top right center pieces go behind the seats and under the plastic tool covers. The shape will dictate which side is which. The small piece below those, bottom right center, is a piece that fits in the right rear deck behind the right rear wheel housing. Not sure about the gray piece. Hope this helps. Dan Edit: Do a search for “Jute” and look for Kats posts to find correct orientation of footwell pieces.
  5. Both of the emissions decals that I had reproduced are gold. And the real decals shown that I used to copy are gold. I was not able to find any gold repros, thus my need to make my own.
  6. DannDZ, when I restored my car, I needed the correct emissions decal for my 1/71 car which was imported through Los Angeles I ended up having the correct 71 emissions decals for both car that entered the country through California, and all the other domestic ports of entry. These decal are very correct and have not been offered for sale yet, but would sell to anyone interested. The first picture is a reproduction of the third picture, and the second picture is of both the original and reproduction California decal. Dan
  7. Hi Kats, I am glad that my experience with a car originally purchased new on 3/25/71 helped confirm the reasons a redesign of the oil pressure gage/sender combination was needed. I had used the 90psi/6kg combination with the good results that you describe, but I needed to use the 140psi/10kg combination to retain the originality of my series 1 car. During periodic maintenance, my mechanic, who has worked on these car since the mid 1970s, confirms my oil pressure with a direct reading gage knowing that this was a problem from the start. It also, as you say, gives me peace of mind. Sorry, I am no help when talking about S20 engines in Z432 cars, but wish I had this Z432 problem. 👨‍✈️ Dan
  8. Thanks 240260280 and all, such great responses. I only wish that I had paid closer attention to these details when my car was new (who knew?). Here are a couple of pics/white paint dot on fuel pump center cap screw, and red paint mark on throttle control set screw along with small green mark on same.
  9. Thanks zspert. The support you gave me was a major factor in my car’s Gold Medallion success. There are few with your depth of knowledge and experience with respect to factory originality when talking about the Datsun 240z. The Z community will always benefit from your successes.
  10. Well, don’t leave us hanging! Could you share some photos of your artwork?
  11. Rich, thanks for posting these great pics, and best of luck with your “Gold Medallion” worthy car. Dan
  12. I reproduced this decal years ago and it is being retailed by both Motorsport and Banzai. I am our of town until Monday but would be happy to send you one Tuesday, unless you need it sooner. It is very accurate. Dan
  13. Jayhawks, when searching for parts for my restoration, I pulled a set of Koito (sp) headlights from a junkyard car probably 15 years ago. Never tested so don’t know if they work. If anyone is interest, PM me with offers. Dan
  14. Hi Chris. Glad to hear your plans for 26th and 27th are finally back on track. As you may know, I had reproduced, along with others, the red mastervac decals being sold by Motorsport and Banzai. More recently I have made the earlier ‘69-‘70 mastervac decal, also very nice and yet to be offered for sale. let me know if they would be of interest to you. the second photo is an original decal, the first, my reproduction. Colors, not well illustrated in the photos, are very accurate. Dan
  15. Have you checked for an exhaust manifold leak at the block?
