  1. Thanks, I've followed his thread and am planning around it but with a nimso pump. It seems these brackets are in short supply so I'm going to have one made up in the meantime.
  2. Hey all, I'm looking to add an electric fuel pump to my 73 240Z and it never originally had one installed. I have been in contact with a few vendors but no results as of yet so if someone has a lead on one, let me know? BTW my car is a 4/73 build and the electric fuel pump wasn't dealer retrofitted either. Thanks!
  3. I have the Spirit Garage system on my 240Z. It is a thing of beauty, RHD Japan super easy to extract the cash out of me and it fits amazingly well...until you realize it was developed for a RHD 240Z when you go to connect your steering arm. I had to "massage" 2 of the primaries and am not super happy with the result, it fits great but the clearance effort is not great. I am going to have to take this to someone who can modify two of the primaries waaay better than I can. One other point, this header is made for triple carbs as the profile for the primaries means you turn your SU heat shield into origami. I also have laying around in my garage one of the last, if not the last, header that Stahl built. For all I had read and had known about Stahl headers I was very surprised to see it arrive with a thin flange that meant we had to have shims cut down to clamp it on properly. It's a nice header but painful. I really should get it out of there at some point.
  4. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    Hi all, If anyone has an electric fuel pump bracket, I believe the PN is 17033-E4200, please let me know. Somehow it is missing off my '73, the wiring is present and functional but I have a NIMSO pump on the way and zap straps aren't gonna cut it! Many thanks!!

    NO VALUE SPECIFIED

  6. Wow great work, duff! I have a new to me 5 speed close ratio 5 speed rebuilt by Whitehead which is great with the 3.70 clsd but I have felt in occasion steeper gears would be work. Yours is going to be super fun. Enjoy!
  7. We're in the same boat...mine definitely sweeps OK, it just sweeps the span from full to empty out of scale, if that makes any sense. Plus the car has been running rich so it chugs the fuel like no tomorrow. That was dealt with this weekend. Anyway I am going to pull it out perhaps this weekend and run the car out of gas at the house. Then pull the sender and see what's up. It is all in the "as full restored" state and was a brand new sender when the tank was boiled, etc, during the restoration. Unfortunately I simply threw the original sending unit away long ago...cheers.
  8. I am in the exact same boat, sort of anyway...I find that mine will show almost full right upon filling the tank but has about 1/4 tank upon empty which doesn't make a ton of sense, to me anyway. Suggestions?
  9. I spent a gross amount of money on all braided hoses on my car. Porsche also used braided hose like this here: https://www.rmeuropean.com/Products/N0203711-MFG21.aspx Might be tricky to find one for coolant for obvious reasons...side note; I somehow managed to nick one of the float bowl soft rubber hoses on my front SU and drip, drip, drip gas right onto a hot header, oops. Anyway I now have pretty cool braided hose from a Porsche on both SU's as I had to wait a bit on the Datsun replacement hoses.
  10. Awesome thread! Your car will be terrific when it's back for sure. Just make sure to extend those damn cowl drains to the exit point on the front fender/ rocker.
  11. Maybe you can pick up something off this recent bat listing of a 73 that appears quite original. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-datsun-240z-84/ Nice hammer price too.
  12. I'm away until tomorrow night but I will look at mine when I get back to town.
  13. Thanks, KONI Lee, for adding some color to the discussion, I am definitely ordering a set for my 240Z.
  14. Here you go, Duff. Cheers
