  1. Thanks for the functional pic's @CanTechZ I agree completely the intention was to exhaust the cabin pressure / flow. I was only stating there was no direct path between the two points. To @Zed Head's point making some seals is the only option going forward.
  2. The way I understand these to work is rather funky for such a well designed car. The large panel vents into the car from the chamber in the hatch just openly. The smaller slit in the two vent pieces are also open to that chamber. crafting the vent to the outside of the car through the chrome vents on the large slit. The tubes are just for draining water out. Which drains right onto the hatch sill, promoting rust. There was no direct connection from the big panel to the smaller pair of vents. These also let in a lot of fumes that billow around the back of the car. At least that is what I determined from refreshing my S1 hatch vents. No wonder they went to the B pillar vents.
  3. I have a 73 which has the "B" transmission, that I am cutting up. I am pretty sure the mounts are the same, but not 100%. They look very similar. I can't think of a reason they would alter them over the years. If you think these might work let me know and we can work something out. I can take more pic's and measurements if needed.
  4. Both sides are the same as many have mentioned. Number 55 is just flipped from one side to the other. and while there were some changes all supersede to the one part number. I have some if you need one or want a pair, in Washington State. Shipping to IL will be something of course. Dave
  5. Also of note in the drawings is the location of the stopper screw. Early has it on the side #19 Late has it on the bottom #17 I concur that it is an early M/C GLWS
  6. I have one as well, @z3beemer, just as a back up to 240Z415.
  7. Most bike shops I worked at sold a product call Kreem. A white three part coating. even back in the late 70's and 80's https://www.kreem.com/fueltankliner.html
  8. Only $110.000... I like the edit screen on the pictures, classy. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1973-Datsun-Z-Series-/324935428381?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0
  9. Mart, the thing about FB is most people don't know that to put some car make and models in the ad, you have to scroll all the way to the bottom and select "other' it will then let you type in what you really have. Most just pick from the list and try to get close. 240SX comes up a lot for the Z's.
  10. I took a look at my parts dash and when I pulled the reset knob off there was no clip on the outside of the dash. The inner clip was there and keeps the cable at the correct length though the dash. The manual does not show one either. The knob does fit tightly and may be the only thing that holds the reset cable end to the dash. Something to try before going through a lot of effort.
  11. When I did my set of Toyota calipers I seem to remember having to notch the backing plate about a 1/4 inch.
  12. I have always found the 10mm snap off just fine with a standard socket, no impact gun needed. 😅 How about that double deep though???? 😎
