  1. Great car!!! Your #4 pic is the Flow Guide Valve, it routes crankcase and fuel tank vapors into the air filter box for combustion. Two ports face the engine, one port faces rear. The lower of the two ports connects to the crankcase breather pipe, the upper port connects to a small forward-facing tube on the back of the air filter, the rearward port connects to a hard line rising from the left frame rail (coming from the fuel tank). Since you are running the stock air filter set-up, there is no gain by not connecting these ports. If you leave them open you are adding some small amount of vapors to the atmosphere. #57 on the catalog diagram: http://www.carpartsmanual.com/datsuns30/Datsun-Z-Index/Engine-240Z-260Z/Emission-Control-Device @siteunseen your car may not have one now but it did at one time - it was stock thru '73.

  4. This recent thread may help you with the synchros question:
  5. Now if only the weather in Texas would cool down!!!
  6. The ball and socket on the front side means there is absolutely zero compliance on the T/C rod moving rearward - every impact will be transmitted to the body. Urethane bushings will be almost as severe in my opinion. I suspect they recommend a rubber bushing on the backside to reduce a hard rebound snap pulling forward on the T/C box mount. The design of the T/C box is oriented to resist rearward forces, not the other direction. Just my $0.02 worth.
  7. Oh sure... blame it on the guy down in Texas, he's such a bad influence on everyone! And, certainly I'm also responsible for the extra purchases as well. bad dog!!! I installed that ball and socket kit many years ago (still have it) when I also swapped out the front control arm bushings for eccentric bushings. I was doing a lot of autocrossing back then. The changes did tighten up the front end but at a cost of civility in the everyday drive experience. The kit came out in favor of rubber T/C bushings when I restoed the car. I see it as a good option for a track or AX intensive setup. My work on the shock swap will also wait until a break in the temps - still running mid-to-high 90's here.

  14. ... is a batch of fuel rails just back from plating. Its Fuel Rails Fiesta time, coming soon to an advert near you!
  15. That is a truly amaZing find! Even more so since the discounted price at Courtesy is $49 each. Thanks for posting the results of your search, looking forward to your update.
  16. The MSA Summer Sale email pushed me over the edge. I just ordered a full set of Koni's and the gland nut tool Sale price + free shipping + no sales tax. Rationalization rears it ugly head!
  17. The spade connects to a condenser on the back side of the distributor.
  18. We share the same transmission code - F4W71A (also known as the "Monkey Motion" shifter). To the best of my knowledge, the rebuild kits for these Type A units are NLA. That's why I have a type B unit from a parts car stashed in my garage in case my unit ever goes out. A very, very long shot might be to identify each of the synchros by P/N and contact your local Nissan dealer to see if they might locate them somewhere. The folks at Courtesy Parts (David and Butch) are good at running down scarce parts if they can be found. Good luck!
  19. Bruce - sorry to hear of the accident but very pleased that you were not injured. Cars can be repaired or replaced, not always that easy with our bodies. I hope all works out well for your ride now that you are getting to enjoy a full power experience. Jim
  20. Looks like a lot ripples in the middle at the back end, likely this work has warped the hood out of it original curvature. You can try working the curve back into it or replace as you mentioned.
  21. Very good point, thanks. Dan, go to the Banzai site and look at decal DE-03. If your carbs linkage matches that image, then that is the decal set for your air filter box.
  22. Check out Banzai for your decals, both emissions and air filter box. When you say "new" air cleaner box, I presume you mean the model with the heat riser tube connected to the snorkel. You indicate you have the earlier one without the snorkel butterfly and no riser tube. I think these models did not have decals but other members might better clarify. http://www.zzxdatsun.com/catDecals.php
