  1. This the best instructions that I found but it doesn't address the throttle shaft itself being worn. https://windyridgefarm.us/documents/DIY_Guide_to_Re-bushing_SU_Carburetors.pdf
  2. Has anyone attempted their own roller bushings similar to what ztherapy manufactures? I wonder if that’s the solution we need for us guys who don’t need all the bling but want the carbs to perform. I’d order the ztherapy kit but I’ve heard it’s almost a year backlog!
  3. I had to replace the ignition switch (behind the key) on the steering column as my 45+ year old one in my '72 seemed to have crapped out while cruising down the highway due to the bouncing of the keys against the ignition switch.
  4. Here's how I did it with two relays: https://jarvas240z.blogspot.com/2015/05/amfm-antenna-upgrade.html
  5. I had the same thing on the first side I did. Gotta get that seal pounded all the way in (gently!) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks for your help! I'll make sure that I "pay it forward" with others who may need some of the old bits that I've collected over the years.
  7. Thank you!! That would be great if you can send me one, happy to pay a fair price and shipping. I’ll send a personal message with my email. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. While pulling the axles out of my '72 240z I noticed that the Grease Catcher (#56 below) was damaged, most likely by the bad bearings that were in there or a prior service by a former owner. I'm converting to Disc Brakes and am questioning if I truly need the piece as its no longer available and its too far damaged to bend it back into shape. Based on the image it appears that the grease catcher is used to prevent grease from entering the inside of the brake drum. Does anyone run their rear axles without the grease catcher?
  9. Funny that is my pump in my garage! Let me dig through my old parts tonight and I'll see what I have left. I think I've got the manifold emmisions pieces, not sure about the pump/hoses any more.
  10. I run a 4.11 and a ‘77 wide ratio 5speed. It’s very spirited driving and I love it. On the highway it’s at about 3500rpm in 5th at 75mph. I don’t have my Z for efficiency, fun is more important to me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Attached is my original (accessory) AC documentation that I ran across years ago.
  12. I used a grade8 nut and bolt. You can access the behind from under the vinyl Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Here's how to wire up the OEM head unit antenna switch with a modern antenna. Up goes up & down goes down by use of some reversing relays. https://jarvas240z.blogspot.com/2015/05/amfm-antenna-upgrade.html
  14. Try Amazon? https://smile.amazon.com/Red-Line-50304-Transmission-Transaxle/dp/B000CPCBEQ/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=redline+mt90&qid=1551223687&s=gateway&sr=8-1

  16. Doesn’t Skillard make a replacement? Check them out Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  17. That looks like the rear defroster switch, which I use for my fogs as the rear defroster isn’t ever needed Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  18. I ran across this a while ago.... https://jdm-car-parts.com/products/genuine-nissan-fog-lamp-kit-nissan-610-240z-260z-280z-510-skyline
  19. Try listing it on Craigslist or Facebook marketplace, I recently sold the same for $110 Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  20. DugsZ -- Electric fuel pumps are better at "pushing" than "pulling" thats why you mount it near the tank. Mechanical pumps are the opposite, they do great with suction.
  21. I’ve got a full set from my ‘72 240z that are in nice condition if anyone is Interested Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  22. These have been on ebay forever (not mine) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-240z-SU-Carb-SM-Race-Needles/302795291986?hash=item4680017d52%3Ag%3ANVkAAOSwmrlUwq27&_sacat=0&_nkw=SU+SM+Needle&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=m570.l1313
  23. No need for the ballast resistor without points. I pulled mine off and the engine runs great with a full 12v going to the plugs Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  24. I have a single one that you’re looking for! No use to me as a single one. PM me and we can work out a deal Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  25. Mine sits for 7 months during the winter with just some stabile in the tank. Modern gas probably can last ~a year.
