  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. Yes, I have a few of those. Send me a PM and we can work something out. Thanks @Zed Head
  4. 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.
  5. I saw those posts this morning as well, and thought they were strange. Under this persons profile, their social site looks ominous as well.
  6. At least the tire is only flat on the bottom. 😂. I can cut out a section for you if you need a patch for that section. Great find, also looking forward to more pic's and info.
  7. I have a 73 and 74 that have something to offer, I believe the T-rod mounts are the same on all the S30's. Can you take a pic of what you need, so I can see if what I have can cover it?
  8. Really strange, I was hoping we could find something causing your problem, It is quite perplexing.
  9. Your set up looks to be correct = tipped to the outside. My 240 for reference (drivers side)......
  10. There is an embossed "R" and "L" on the bottom side of these you can check. (referenced from the drivers seat)
  11. Looks to be at a consignment lot in Grants Pass for $23K. Long text about the car and history. Respray over lime green, but looks mostly unmolested, but with the engine compartment painted black the engine has probably been removed at some point. https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/ctd/d/grants-pass-1970-datsun-240z-5-70/6917576919.html
  12. His title is probably rusty too. lol 122 feedback with only 5 being as a seller, 2 cars ( a Jag for $510 and an RX7 for $3700) 2 trailers and one unknown. all more than a year old. 6 pages of feedback as a buyer, again all over a year old. Classiccarconnection00 makes him sound like a car dealer or something. ???
  13. lol, I did not call him, just something I see on FB all the time, when the prices are ridiculous. Kind of like "it ran when I parked it there"
  14. $1900 now and still reserve not met.
  15. I have the Float Sync, and think it works quite well. The way I use it is to lay a 14mm nut on the edge as shown and that gives me a great level indicator.
  16. BZ3038 are listed as fitting the 79-83 280ZX front. All the strut companies list 3 types for the Z cars Koni, KYB and (now obsolete) Tokico's https://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/CTGY/classic20b 240 to early 260 - BZ3015 / BZ3016 late 260 to 280 - BZ3012 / BZ3013 and ZX fronts only. - BZ3038 It would seem to me something is different in the valving or gas charge or length, etc. Reading through my instructions I can find no mention of any accessories that came with the cartridges. There is mention of a spacer needing to be added if the gland nut does not torque down properly. Not sure if this helps you with the issues at hand. Personally I would find the correct application strut. Just my observation and opinion.
  17. Hard to see either of those pieces in the pic's supplied on eBay. (Hood and rear glass.) I am sure a few early parts are there but condition is a factor. Are they worth the reserve price? $?.??
  18. Wow, that is a head scratcher. It sure seems like the strut is not moving down with the weight. If you push the car down, it does move the suspension down right? not super stiff, or no movement? Everything looks right, so I would have to go back to the item that was replaced. If you do pull the strut back out of the tube confirm the BZ number on the strut housing itself. I am running out of ideas here. I put Illumina's in my car FR and RR and it sat really low. I was using their springs though, which the fronts collapsed on me. I recently put heavier springs in and it raised the car but not nearly as much as yours.
  19. $1700 and reserve not met, even for a parts car it seems high for the condition. Hard to say what is going to still be original and/or usable. The center console is of a later year. Interesting tail pipes too. JMO
  20. That is a lot of angle on the front arm, like the struts are not moving or the springs are to heavy. Did you remove all 4 when you changed the struts? Like ZH said maybe mixed the front and rear springs? Also are the Tokico's set on #1 dampening?
  21. With the frame mounts poly, and the trans mount rubber, I would think it wouldn't be too bad. It is a personal choice to be sure. My 70 has no mounts like that, but I don't mind at all. Yes they are.
  22. I understand better now. Those are discontinued from Nissan, unfortunately. You might be better off finding a used mount with bushings in it that are in better shape than yours. JMO
