    1973 "Series I Clone" in Albuquerque

    Anybody interested in that car? I am in the same city where that car is for a few days, can go look though I am not an expert looker.

    worth saving? VIN:HLS3003595

    I remember seeing a 240Z sitting in a field on the North side of Guerneville Rd in Santa Rosa CA, one of the cities that got hit by fire (mostly on the N and NE side). The fire reached South to Guerneville Rd in some areas and in at least one spot crossed it. I saw the smoldering remains in the news from a building on Guerneville Rd I had been in. Not likely it is the same Z. So far no bids.

    worth saving? VIN:HLS3003595

    Looking on the bright side, some of the work in redoing the spindle rubber bushings has already been done, they have been burned away.

    I learned the word achtung from that old apple ][ computer game called "Castle Wolfenstein".

    Reminds me of the old days when late one night a neighbor came home half lit singing at the top of his lungs the hallelujah chorus except he substituted the word diarrhea for hallelujah.

    71 240z strange overheating/cooling system problem.

    I guess this might be a long shot but I wonder if the impeller blades could be rusted off badly. I remember seeing a water pump from a 240Z where large portions the impeller blades were rusted off so not much of the impeller was left which must have really reduced water flow. Can't remember if I saw that on a water pump from my car or if it was a pump someone else had or if I saw it on a website. If I recall the water flow from the water pump can be seen with the radiator cap removed? Not sure how one would quantify what a sufficient flow would be.

    Stronger Lift Pad Locations To Prevent Frame Rail Damage

    I have wondered about having a tag hanging down saying jack point or maybe just an arrow. My current 240 needed a BFH to push the floor back down from a previous lift that used the floor under the feet as the jack point in the front.

    intake mainfold to carb spacer gaskets

    That was my thought for water heat removal, get rid of hoses that might fail. Should get the carbs back from Z therapy around the end of December. Can't wait for that!

    intake mainfold to carb spacer gaskets

    tzagi1, Thank you for taking the time to type in the gasket making information. I wondered what type of cardboard might work. siteunseen, Not knowing a lot about carbs I left the carb water heating hooked up with my only reasoning being that the manufacturer knows more about carbs than I do, though I am willing to do independent thinking too, and to take advice from forum members to possibly remove carb water heating. I live in a warm Arizona climate. I should be able to evaluate carb performance in this climate better once I get them reinstalled on the car and have an opportunity to drive the car when it is really hot. Since I recently relocated, I haven't been here for the hot part of summer yet.
  11. It is listed as in fair condition? What would be poor condition?

    Those cars do look awesome. Anyone ever sleep overnight in their Z? I did that once when I was much younger.

    Will a late 240Z carpet set fit in an early 240Z?

    Thanks for the information grannyknot and JSM. I had to move the cargo strap bolts when I put in the doors I had forgotten about that. Gotta eat more coconut oil (good for memory?). Looks like MSA has the carpet versions split between 70 to early 71 and late 71 to 73.
