    She's been on my wall since this thread started.
  2. Thanks everybody, I'm excited and nervous. If you have anything to contribute to the discussion on BAT feel free to participate.

    Since I've been a member here for the duration of my Datsun(s) ownership I'd like to share the sale of my last Z with you all: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1974-datsun-260z-35/

  5. Unfortunately I need to sell mine. I just finished getting mine spiffed up and ready to go
  6. Long term update: The alternator listed here and the one that fits the 1982 Caprice use a 10.414mm (0.41in) wide belt, and my Z motor uses a 13mm belt system. The actual belt that zKars used is a 13mm (1/2") belt so the original instructions are correct but this cross reference section is not. Initially the 1982 Caprice alternator bolted right in and with a thinner belt it seemed to work OK. Under heavy load, perhaps due to my 3.0 Rebello motor, the thin belt gets thrown. I was able to source a replacement pulley and am happy to report that with the correct pulley everything appears to be working correctly. I attempted to find a better cross reference with a 10SI alternator that came with the correct pulley but I never found an OEM equivalent, though I did find several advertised for tractors that looked right. Here is the pulley info: Delco Alternator Generator Belt Pulley 3/8 7/16 1/2 in Wide Single 1 Groove 10SI
  7. +2 I also have one, a Fidanza mated to a centerforce. I love it
  8. Is got 89mm Nissan KA24E pistons in it. They appear to be "reversed dome" style dished pistons. Also remember that here in California the highest octane fuel available is 91, and its got ethanol in it. While I only use the best (garbage) gas available it runs fine in day to day usage. I also told Dave that I prioritize daily driving over power so he may have chosen dished pistons to match that request. This thing makes plenty of power without flat tops so I have no regrets.
  9. My Rebello motor is an N42/N42 combo at roughly 3 liters. Even 3 years ago neither Rebello or I were able to find a serviceable N42 head. We sourced 5-6 of them but most were degraded past what could be used. Luckily my car already had an N42/N42 setup so instead of swapping motors with a replacement he rebuilt what I had.
  10. Thats wrecking yard material, but this guy probably has one: http://www.zspecialties.com/
  11. Yeah, we really need to know if that was a 10mm socket.
  12. Pick 'n Pull does in fact sell whole cars. They always have at least a dozen cars in the front of the lot gated off from the parts cars for sale. I cant promise they will let you buy a whole car from the salvage area, but they do sell whole cars.
  13. For reference my Z came with maybe a 3/8 pipe connecting my header to the balance tube area. The balance tube also had a connection to the water system. Your car doesn't have the flat top carbs so I don't think you can restore all the connections. Your best bet is to plug that hole, but that's already your plan.
  14. Howard, I ran a brass plug on my early 260z for at least 10k miles and only replaced it when I installed a new header. Speaking of headers, didn't I send you one with the car?
