    Am I missing anything?

    @sparegolfer I used this as a guide for my first poly change over on a 280, http://atlanticz.ca/zclub/techtips/suspension.htm Did again to my 240, same thing. My only problem was the lock nut on the T/C rods. They're one use. Mine fell off luckily in my driveway so I put new nylon lock nuts on both sides. Also the OE rubber and poly mix works great on those rods like Jeff says. I bought the rubber from Napa way back when but zcardepot.com has all the stuff cheaper, https://www.google.com/search?rls=ig&source=hp&ei=UrBIXKfGOMfVjwTo7byACA&q=napa+auto+280z+compression+rod+bushing&btnK=Google+Search&oq=napa+auto+280z+compression+rod+bushing&gs_l=psy-ab.3..33i299l3.1182.22774..23940...0.0..0.115.3110.33j5......0....1..gws-wiz.....0..0j0i131j0i22i30j33i160.9j-DxNl4ht0

    Classic 1977 Datsun Z car parts/project (make offer)

    That's real close to my early '77, built in 9/'76. The sloped up rear deck is what I'm going by. The later ones had a built up flat deck. Good luck, hopefully you'll sell it.

    Head storage.

    Don't forget the bottom. A couple of valves will be sticking out. Use styrofoam or doubled up cardboard on the bottom.

    no fuel going to rear carb

    With the choke pulled back and the nozzles dropped all the way my 72 doesn't need any pedal to start. I had a 240 that wouldn't crank right up when I first bought it. Adjusted the valves to spec and it would fire up instantly.

    '78 Black Pearl Restoration

    You have a well thought out plan! Enjoy reading your post. I've always read CTS, coolant temp sensor, FWIW.

    How Many 240Z’s (1970 to 1973) are left?

    I thought the rhd had different stampings? Give them more time...😀 To the theme of Rawhide... "Trollin' trollin' trollin'"

    How Many 240Z’s (1970 to 1973) are left?

    I was averaging 1,500 per state, with a grain of salt.

    How Many 240Z’s (1970 to 1973) are left?

    There's 5 I can put my hand on in this one horse town. Three running and 2 that aren't. I'd guess half the total pruduction?
  19. It looks a ZX interior to me?
  20. Wow, you're absolutely right! He'd probably rather sign titties anyway.

    HLS30-00762 popped up, pretty banged up

    Me too! Cheap for 1/70 build date I think. Buy it. Safari Gold paint, one of my favorites.

    T-tops found in basement

    Looks like ZX tops. You should post at zcar.com. more zx owners there. Good luck.

    no fuel going to rear carb

    It's a pretty big job for a 240. You may just buy another car? I've never seen a new tank for the 240s and I've read from end to the other. There is a guy on ebay that makes an aluminium one for about $2,000.
