    Bought the 'family' 1970 240Z from my folks. My step-father was the original owner. He kept it in very good condition for 39 years. Will try to restore it and keep it in original condition as best I can. VIN is HLS30-02614 so its an early one.<br /><br /><br />

  2. Hi Mike,

       My restoration thread has been totally deleted.  Not sure why.





  3. Yes, that looks correct.  Pretty sure it is the same for the 74 as it is for the 71.  What would be cost with shipping?

  9. I am running 7/8" both front and rear. I like it

  10. Thanks for the info. Id like to ride in a car with that set up but we live too far apart (LOL). One more thing... Do you have stock sway bars? I have a 1" in front and 7/8 in the rear. I took the rear off because it was way too harsh. So if i changed back to stock springs, ill put the rear bar back in. Gosh, so many options its hard to decide.


  11. Yes, I prefer the set-up for the daily drive. Its still firm, but liveable. I recently cut 1.5 coils off of the front only to evenout the body. The back is stock and sagging, but the front was still stock height. I cut the coil to make the tire clearance the same front and back. I really like the ride...no desire to change. I think it looks better too.


  12. I just read your post from last year. Im having a similar dilema with my Z. I have the Eibach springs and Illumina struts. Fun but kinda harsh. Thinking about switching to shorten stock springs and same struts. Questions for you is... Is the stock set up still somewhat sporty? No problems with such a strong strut and soft spring? Thanks for all your help.

  13. hey guys! Long time no see .I've finally got some time to start restoring my baby,a 1970 HLS30 code 240z. Its all pretty much original except for an L-28,and was given to me by a buddy of mine whos a retired shop owner.)but this is my first real dive into a restore of this kind and I've got a ton of questions that Ifigured the collective genius of this site would have no problem answering.First is points or electronic? My engine is in & the compartment looks like it accommodates a point driven engine but my distributor is electronic.with no ECM in site. What are my options and which path is easier on my wallet & heart?

    Second question is would anyone have a detailed fuel line and vacuum diagram for a twin SU setup?...oh yeah, i need pix of tail sections so I know how skirt curves Thanks again! immrrogers812@yahoo.com if u have pix:)
