  1. An impressive looking car, thanks for posting. Even has the correct battery terminalIs and clamps. Is the paint mostly original? Consider bringing it to Zcon next year...
  2. This is the correct oil pressure sender for your car John .... The later sender, Nissan changed the fuel pump safety cutoff from the afm contacts to detect loss of oil pressure and disable the pump.
  3. Charles & Cody would give the Dutch a run for their money....
  4. The heat shield can go in later, just before the driveshaft is put back in. I think you only need that shield if the catalytic converter is in the exhaust system. Could be wrong ....
  5. It is important to protect the cable. I would add your leftover wrap to it. Your car is coming together great!
  6. FYI, I installed a Fidenza flywheel a few months ago and had the same issue with the dowel pins. One of the 3 fit properly, the two others were .002 bigger, the length was correct. Had to machine the dowels to fit the flywheel pin holes. The flywheel holes were correct, the pins were the problem.
  7. They were talking about the "Proto Spec" edition of only 240 cars. Likely only available only in the lkuzachi yellow of the prototype and with features and interior treatment not available in the sport & performance trims.
  8. Very nice car and welcome! If your picture is fairly accurate, it looks it has had a respray at some time with a color change to red. Cliff's picture is close, hard to take a good pic in direct sun, best to do a dusk with the softer light. Take a look under the carpet in the hatch area and see if you can see the persimmon color...
  9. Thank you! A quick rough measurement shows about 2 1/2 inches of clearance to the frame rail. I originally tried to clock the compressor fillings 90 degrees toward the frame rail, but the bigger discharge fitting was just too close to the rail for comfort. In other A/C related news, I recently completed about 1700 miles of driving to Zcon & back with the A/C system running and it performed flawlessly. Very happy about that, and even with the A/C running some of the trip, I managed around 29 mpg on the fuel. (Had to drive behind Zup's silver 240 some of the time so he wouldn
  10. Doesn't look too bad John, hit it with some various size stiff or wire brushes with some cleaner best you can, prime & paint. I have no issues there, so easy for me to say, but I understand its a fiddley area to tackle and make it right ...
  11. I would be interested in what you did with the servo motor conversion Bruce. Took a quick look, but could not find it. How long ago did you do that project?
  12. To verify the new alternator is not charging the battery, measure the voltage across the battery with the ignition off, then measure the alternator output terminal with the car running, maybe 1000 rpm. If they measure the same, the alternator is not providing a charge and the problem is likely a bad rebuilt / new alternator or as SteveJ has mentioned, the external regulator. If the alternator is working, you should see somewhere near 14v on the second measurement.
  13. I believe he is looking for lowering springs with a 1 1/2 to 2" drop. Like my stance.
  14. They should have has the two Hooters girls that were at the show do the reveal. One on the fender, the other on the roof. Could have recreated the fall 69 240z dent at the hotel launch.
  15. Datsun ... We are Driven Myself and Zup live up to that slogan! Departed Saturday morning with a overnight stop in Amarillo Tx. Had some great steak at the famous Big Texan. Off the next day to complete the trip to Colorado Springs, (about 1600 miles roundtrip) arrived safely with minimal bugs embedded in the front end in the afternoon. Got a little dicey going over the high pass south of Colo Springs, all the carbed cars I saw struggled with the altitude change and Zups flat tops were no exception. CO and Wayne came in Wed night and we had another steak dinner Thursday. Zup'
