    How about mounting screws and the special washers? If they come with the guards, would be nice. Kats

    1st gen seats

    Hi Steve , we have been waiting this so long time, I buy two sets of them !! Great work !! Kats
  4. My 240ZG has 1972 June 7th ( R. F. G ) on the jack , while 1972 June 15th ( 47. 6. 15 ) on the paper . This could be a good example of “ A paper later than a jack “ . To extend this to everything in a car , what is the latest date you can find in your car ? I will look up a steering horn metal contact , seat back metal brackets , these seems to be made close to the date that a car was completed assembling. Kats
  5. Hi, have we discussed about this before? I want to know the answer of these coding. Each jack has alphabetical code, I have a jack , ’ P. C. E ‘ Could it be made 1970 March 5th ? This jack is in my 03/1970 240Z. And olso the car has ‘ 0. C ‘ stamp on a tire stoppers , I guess it could be 1970. March. I saw a 09/1970 car has ‘ P H Y’ , this means 1970 August 25th ? This car still has a paper list in a tool bag, with a stamp ‘ 45 9 10’ ( 1970 September 10th) And I found some 1969 cars have ‘ O ‘ for their jack, O I A , 1969 September 1st ? O G S , 1969 June 19th ? These cars have these on their tire stopper s. ‘ 9. I ‘ 1969 September? ’ 9 K ‘ 1969 November? Kats
  6. Thanks jayhawk , you are so lucky that you have a paper with your car . Yes 47 . 10 . -3. means 1972 , October 3rd . Could you let us know what date does your jack have ? I am curious about which date is earlier , jack or paper ? I think a paper must have date later than a jack , because a stamp on a paper means “ Inspected “ . I think the date is shown on the paper is very close to the end of assembling, as well as a set of carpets . They are easy to make for the manufacturer, so seems no need to make a huge pile of them , what do you think of it? My orange 240Z has a jack 1971 November 29th ( Q K CC ) , while its carpets has 1971 November 15th ( 1 K 15 15 , I don’t know what means the last 15 , maybe 15 o’clock? ) . Unfortunately, my orange 240Z lost its paper . To imagine assembling line in the factory is very fun . Kats

    Datsun-240z Vs Fairlady-z432

    Hi , I replaced a battery of my Z432 . This is small one , so associated parts such as a tray /a holder / a cap everything is different from the export S30 cars . The negative terminal is smaller , so you need to have a specific cable for this Japanese S30 . However , there was an optional item “ battery for cold erea “ in Japan , in that case you will have the same big battery as an export S30 . To make a label , I used a paper bag for the key as a donor, then modified it to have some authentic look . Kats
  9. Hi scotta , thanks to add more examples, now you need to find 2 I for your chocks. What a coincidence, I will look up Shimoura -san ‘s chassis number when I visit him next time. Kats

    Hi Ian and Gavin , thanks for your input , this place ( classiczcars.com ) changed my image “ flat top “ . I just don’t know what it is like , I had just followed the rumors without having experience with it . I have a friend whose car has flat tops and really mint condition, I must see it and feel it .

    Oh , this Toyota 2000GT is an automatic, "TOYO GLIDE" model. And an airconditioning blowere has to sit in the middle of the both seats ! No space in a dashboard, while S30 (Fairlady Z /Fairlady 240Z series except Z432 and Z432-R) has an in-dash airconditioning system assembled in a factory. Did you notice Toyota 2000GT has the same seat belts which manufactured by TAKATA , I saw it in some Honda models too. Kats

    Thank you bartsscooterservice, I think S30 was modern in many ways , unibody is one of them . Thanks Alan , yes S30 was a huge quantity model , Nissan Shatai reached 6000 S30 cars per month in April 1972 ! While Toyota 2000 GT was 30 cars per month , big difference. Unibody is good for less weight, for example Z432 is 1040 kg , ( S20 Engine 199kg ) , Toyota 2000GT 1145 kg ( 3M Engine 209 kg ) . Courtesy モーターワールド Nov 1970 , 自動車の実務 Feb 1970 , 月間自動車 Jan 1970 . Kats

    Datsun-240z Vs Fairlady-z432

    Thanks Alan ! That is a great infomation. At Aug 1973 , UK and Europe got the most powerful S30 ever, L26 with 161BHP or something ? At that time, Z432 (160BHP) was dropped from the Nissan's line up. I have read an article of a Japanese magazine about 240Z europe model test ride , the journalist envied the europian customers so much. I found these picture , the metalic brown UK 260Z was on an auction 2016 , and the 110 red 240ZG was on a sale in Japan 2006. They are very useful to look at . Kats

    Datsun-240z Vs Fairlady-z432

    So I classified them like this , At the end of Datsun 240Z / Fairlady Z and 240Z series ‘ s production, the most strict and complicated anti pollution system is for #1 US and Canada ( air pump , and a lot of piping , HMB 46 ) #2 Japan ( No air pump but a canister , HMB 46 ) #3 Europe and Australia, New Zealand ( just simple, HJG 46 ) Is it correct? You see the black bottle, that is the canister for Fairlady Z models.( except Z432 ) Kats

    About the Summer/ Winter air cleaner, after 03/1973 , Fairlady Z series ( except Z432 ) has a new bigger air cleaner which has the vacuum operated valve with a temperature compensation . Excerpt from スクランブルカーマガジン 03/82 , Parts catalog Fairlady Z 1973 . And I looked FSM and Service bulletin for 1973 240Z. Kats

    Thanks grannyknot ! And that is a good question, fender mirror is easy because you do not have to move your head to check the mirror, you just slide your eye point to the fender mirrors. But not easy to adjust the mirrors, the best way is to have your assistant for your best rear view . And the fender mirrors can show the rear view relatively smaller than the door mirror I think .
