  1. Yep, looks like it from your picture. Check out KlassicFab Vintage JDM, I've been hearing very good things about their parts. If you do not see what you want on their website just contact them since their website is not current with all their parts (they are constantly rolling out new items).
  2. I'll have to defer to someone like @26th-Z with experience, my knowledge in this area is based upon what I have learned/read not what I've done.
  3. In short yes, brace/support/align! Like 26th-Z said, and he's got some experience with metal work on these cars. 😉
  4. I was just going to ask what that area looked like when you took the car apart. In my experience I've not seen that area damaged either so I'm not sure there is a need to re-engineer it.
  5. For what it's worth I have HLS30-08215, build date 8/70 and it has an E31 block and an E31 head with the 4-screw carbs and the flapper style air cleaner (if anyone reading cases about that info). I also have HLS30-06293, build date 6/70 and it too has an E31 block and curiously enough it has an E88 head with the 4-screw carbs and the non-flap air cleaner. I'd have to look at what HLS30-018482, build date 1/71, has since I have no pix of that engine and it's stored elsewhere. As you can see just from what I personally have there's a bit of a mixed bag on the '70s.
  6. 😞 I've been seeing more and more sent overseas lately. There was one from right here in my backyard that was in an accident and ended up in Europe by way of the insurance auction. The good news is that it is being repaired!
  7. So I did a little more digging based upon Carl's info (it made me curious), here's what I found: Florida auction: http://classiccardb.com/datsun/516190-datsun-240z-1970-1972-project-cars-with-lots-of-extra-parts.html A 2015 legal notice of lien in a Lee County publication: https://legals.businessobserverfl.com/legal-notice-uploads/2015-03-06-Lee.pdf The Florida auction site lists a phone number, it may be worth a phone call to see if you can chase it down.
  8. @DatsunZGuy, I saw that same ad for the headlights and just laughed. I suppose for those looking for a pure stock car or chasing that six figure auction price it is worth it, for the rest of us I think it's a waste of money.
  9. Unfortunately there's not going to be a clear cut-over date/month. If you browse through the registries you will see that build dates, VIN, and engine serial numbers do not all align sequentially. That's the bad news. The good news is that someone will be able to help with a rough transition timeframe (I do not have that information).
  10. How many miles have you put on since replacing? Have you gone back and double checked everything is installed and adjusted properly?
  11. Apex has been good, they do want me to tell them the length though.
  12. @yarb, Oh I know the item...there is nothing about the length unfortunately. If they are unwilling/unable to provide pre-sales support to ensure customers get the right stuff I'll take some of that business elsewhere and save some money in the process (i.e. these lines will be bought elsewhere). There are still some items I'll be buying from them, I just won't be spending as much with them as I initially planned on. 😞 So really my questions remain....
  13. From memory they did not, though it's been several years since I researched this. As I recall I replaced mine with Spicer u-joints that do have a grease fitting.
  14. @Yarb, unfortunately ZCarDepot has been completely non-responsive for the past couple weeks...I had a few questions before placing an order and it's been radio silence. 😞 They seem to be fine at getting orders out the door once placed (I've ordered from them a few times since March), the issue seems to be in their lack of communication on pre-sales questions. I've even found their phone number and nobody answers and no option to leave a message.
  15. For those of you who have replaced your 240Z soft/flexible brake lines this question is for you! I'm replacing with braided stainless lines and was asked for the length. On the rear this is easy enough as I can just measure the original ones, unless someone has a reason to get a different length. On the front however it seems this is a little different...I've replaced the stock calipers with the Toyota 4-piston ones and from my understanding the new brake line should run from the connection point on the body directly to the new caliper, soooooo how long should this be? Is there any real benefit to having swivel ends on the lines and if so where (i.e. front and rear, both ends, just the body side, just the brake side, etc, etc)? FWIW I'm ordering Apex lines.
