  1. Uh-oh looks like I snagged a photo without paying the royalty fee. šŸ˜Ž Your .0296 cents is in the mail. I bet a lot of the google images are from this and other forums.
  2. What I have seen happen, is that there is a D shape to the strut hat. The strut piston has a corresponding D shape to it. That is what keeps the inner shaft from spinning when you tighten the nut. If the D shape gets rounded out the nut will spin the piston shaft and it will not tighten. (I just grabbed this pic off the web to show the D notch in the hat). If you look under the fender at the strut while turning the nut and see the inner strut piston turning as well the the hat is probably rounded out. Like what @siteunseen indicated.The proper fix is to take it apart and find another hat. Zip off the nut with an impact gun and see if the hat is rounded out, and see if you did in fact strip the nut. You could impact drive the nut down to tighten it but that is not a proper fix. Just a possibility......
  3. View Advert WTB : Inner headlight shell 240Z Right side (Passenger) After an encounter with a deer, I am looking for some parts I did not have good examples of in my used parts hoard. Namely, the passenger side inner headlight shell as seen in the pics. The inner adjustment ring is still good but the outer shell and the outer trim ring are damaged. I have seen the ones on eBay and right sides are only in pairs as assemblies and rather pricey. From what I understand 240-280 will work they just have different wires. If you have a nice shell like the one pictured please contact me. I offer paypal or trades if you need something.

  5. You were lucky. I have clipped a deer with my daily. Just a small scratch in the bumper. Lucked out that time. If I could only reverse the impacted cars. Iā€™d rather have the daily smashed and a scratch on the Z. šŸ˜Ž
  6. The gold zinced shell behind the headlight It mounts to the inside of the fender it also holds a inner ring the the bulb mounts to so the headlight can be adjusted. Not sure what Nissan calls it but it is discontinued. I have one but it is rather rusted.
  7. My encounter did not turn out so well. (July 22nd) The deer /car impacts around here have been on the rise this year. Fortunately no frame damage, and no serious injuries just small glass cuts. Just settled with the insurance, so on the way to being repaired. Deer Shat on the fender, I almost shat my seat when she hit the windshield. Stay safe out there....... My wife is understanding my parts hoarding now, as I have most of the parts to fix her up. I am still looking for a nice inner headlight bucket.
  8. Wow, that is some serious rust going on there. You sure don't see that in the original ad. it really pays to go see them in person. I hope you find something you can build on and use some parts from this. I knew that turbo was something odd. Cessna huh? interesting.
  9. Just a guess, but looking at the exhaust pipes and the shifter I would venture to say a V8 swap. I agree there are some good parts still there.
  10. Looks like 5% for the car. Still an extra fee for the privilege of buying the car from John Carl's online auction. *Online bidders pay 10% buyers premium. The 1970 Datsun 240Z has a 5% online buyers premium What happened to the air filter housing? It looks shortened. Is that for the A/C pump?
  11. Being it was 40% off engines and trans sale day, I went down and looked at this one. The engine, trans, and rear diff were all gone. I grabbed a door glass for a fellow Z car club members needs at least. It did still have the front suspension there, I know the 510 guys like those, but they price them as separates, so it adds up to over $100 per side.
  12. Yes, I have a few of those. Send me a PM and we can work something out. Thanks @Zed Head
  13. I have 2 "A" style transmissions, 1 was in a flooded out car so I expect it is not good for much other than some parts. The main shaft still spins but the shifter mechanisum is rusted up solid. If zKars can't fill your request. I believe I can.
  14. I saw those posts this morning as well, and thought they were strange. Under this persons profile, their social site looks ominous as well.
