  1. I think the bracket below the moustache bar is part "42" in the fiche "Assy protector member transverse link" (part No. ).
  2. Attached are a couple of images of a NOS caliper I have. Also attached is a scanned page from a Datsun 260Z brochure (UK issue), illustrating the front hub, and caliper. As far as I can see the brochure is undated, but the car on the front has an "M" suffix, indicating it was registered between August 1973 and July 1974 (also 1974 is mentioned in the brochure text).
  3. From the US L-Drive fiche, item "9", I assume from the image below "T = 6.0mm" = Thickness = 6.0mm. Same on my R-Drive fiche.
  4. I know that the stainless steel roof trims (see image below) on late model coupes (01/76 on) are fitted with clips (see image below), certainly to part number 73812-N4425 and 73813-N4425, for example. In NOS examples, they are normally contained in a little bag (see image below) as part of the roof trim assembly itself, but not clipped into it (I say normally, as a couple I purchased didn't have them).
  5. Here are some pictures of part 01121-00061. Correct for an L24 or L26 rocker cover, according to my R-Drive fiche.
  6. I did notice on two of the caps, the ones with the ivory-coloured "Z", that there is a gold ring around perimeter of the iridescent centres. I didn't notice that one cap was upside down, so I am part of the majority, I guess! I had to take a long look at the picture before I saw what you meant, about the "Z" on one cap being inverted. Great spot!
  7. I don't have the specific colour code for the "Black Pearl"-type wheel infills, but here are a couple of pictures of an unused spare. The grey infill colour on the unrestored original appears a lighter shade than the restored wheel in your image. Saying that, as has been noted a number of times on this site, there will inevitably be shade variations between batches of parts from the OEM supplier(s). To prove that point, I have attached a picture of four NOS centre caps I have for the "Black Pearl"-type wheels, albeit with the same part number, but which illustrate significant shade variations on the white/ivory "Z" and the iridescent blue/green background. .
  8. Hi Cooper260z, My factory-stock, 1978, UK 260z has flat tops fitted. In order to track down this hose, you need to determine the part number from the factory fiche. Below is a screenshot from the US L-Drive fiche. I think the hose you are referring to is number "88", which relates to part "16088-N3300". Despite some US/UK carburettor differences, the part number is the same, for this hose. Looking at ebay, there are currently 2No. available from the same seller at: https://www.ebay.com/itm/DATSUN-240Z-260Z-280Z-FAIRLADY-Z-S30-HOSE-CONNECTING-16088-N3300-JDM-SPARES/202722668547?hash=item2f33367003:g:uJMAAOSw4eRdXLqM (ebay item number: 202722668547) If originality is important, then it will be worthwhile asking the seller for an image of the actual part, because sometimes these original braided hoses are substituted for smooth-finished hoses, based on the original part number, where superseded.

    Containment

    Hi Ian, Great thread idea! Attached are a few examples of "containment", including one from "Pardat", who sold authorized Nissan parts through UK dealerships. I like the red, white and blue boxes the most.
  10. I couldn't add any more images to my previous post, so I have uploaded them here. I edited the text too to illustrate the type of grommet I am after, thanks.
  11. This advert is COMPLETED!

    Hi there, I am looking for 2No. excellent condition license light cable rubber grommets, that sit behind the license light and protect the license light cable as it passes through the metal bodywork into the rear hatch (behind the trim panel). I don't think the part is available OEM new, but I can't seem to find the part number on my fiche anyway. I have a UK car, so the license light configuration is different from US models, but the rubber grommet I am looking for is identical. On UK cars the license light is mounted on the rear bumper (the unit above the license plate does not have bulbs in it), so the cable passes through the lower valance, up alongside the wheel well externally and then in through the hatch floor. Therefore, there are two points where the license light cable passes through the car's body, and hence why I am after 2No, grommets (grommets with holes through them for the cable). The image shows the position of the rubber grommet I am looking for on US cars, but on my car this is a blind grommet, not the type I am looking for. I am looking for the type with a hole through the middle. Thanks for looking.

  13. View Advert WTB Genuine Nissan Weatherstrip (76836-N4500) LH I am looking for a NOS, genuine Nissan quarter window weatherstrip (not aftermarket) for my 1977 260Z coupe. This is part number 76836-N4500, for the left hand side. I know there is a generic Nissan replacement part that fits both sides, but I am not after that, thanks. I am happy to purchase both sides of the handed quarter window weatherstrips as a set, i.e. part 76835-N4500 (although I have that already - see image), along with part 76836-N4500, if preferred.

  15. Steering wheel rims on later models are finished in hard rubber, like the later model shift knobs. There is a slight difference in the 1977/78 model steering wheel hard rubber rim than earlier type hard rubber rims, in that the former type hard rubber rim has faux "stitching" at the 6 o'clock position, whereas the 1977/78 model does not, I believe (same as on my 1977 UK 260Z, i.e., no faux stitching ).
