  1. Cannot give you any measurements, but there is a few photos of the area in my build thread that might help.
  2. This is what I did. I cut it open with a metal saw and after blasting it there was no issue with welding it back together. I wore an correct mask for lead during the blasting and while welding.
  3. So I had a look and what I said is correct, solid black wire from neg post on coil to spade on distributor. It should be along side a yellow wire that goes to the temp sensor right above the distributor.
  4. I am sure that the condenser on the points needs to be connected, it is part of the points. The two other two, voltage reg and coil are used for noise reduction, but the points will not work in the one on the dizzy is not hooked up. As well the wire to the spade connector must be connected. I will look at my car later, but I think it is a wire that comes from the neg side of the coil.
  5. My 1970 has a factory buzzer that goes off if I open the door with the key in the in the ignition .
  6. Rockauto has a couple of choices at a better price.
  7. Looks like you can get one at Napa. https://www.napacanada.com/en/p/NCF1106029?partTypeName=Clutch+Pack&impressionRank=1&keywordInput=clutch
  8. Have you tried the local Nissan dealer, it was a few years ago, but I bought several sets from them.
  9. I know, the guy that sold me this one kept going on about how much they were worth and I thought it was a sale pitch. Now I see a really nice restored 72-73 goes for north of $20,000. It is quite interesting how much this product line follows the S30 line. First ones were made in 72 , but mostly registered as 73 so they are worth the most. Changes in the late 73-74 model improved it, more changes in 75 made it the last year of the Z1 as well as the most made so less value. Many changes in 76 and rebrand as a KZ. Went from 900 to 1000 cc
  10. My understanding is that he uses a two stage process. First a dry media blast, not sure what the type is, assume glass beads and then the wet blast with glass beads.
  11. Trying not to clutter this site with bike stuff, but had to post how the engine parts came back from vapour blasting. Really impressed with the look. @CanTechZ I used VaporBlastCanada which is in Chilliwack if you need anything done.
  12. Went for a lovely drive the other day, for us Canadians this is kind of a nice thing in Dec.
  13. Replacing a rear quarter is a bit of work but quite doable. I did both of them on my car. l used a half dozen or so of the cheap spot weld bits. I cut about 6” lower than the original seam on the rooftop and butt welded it. Everything where else I plug welded using the hole left from drilling out the spot welds. Make sure not to drill trough when removing the old panel, you need the metal to weld to. I did not bother with any bracing.
