  1. I have a 1/71 production date 240Z that has major front end damage so I'm shopping around for a front clip. My question is what differences are there between the different years and when were those differences? Example, I'm looking at a 6/71 build and wondering if there were changes made from 1/71 to 6/71? My 1/71 has all the expected series I items such as the latching fuel door, no vents in the rear quarter/pillar, etc.
  2. Yes, the color in the picture you posted does look to be incorrect. I've looked at a couple of sources and also my own Z (paint is for crap on mine) and 918 is more orange that that picture looks. Here are the sources I'm talking about... http://zhome.com/History/ZColorGallary/index.html https://zcarguide.com/datsun-240z-stock-paint-and-interior-colors-us-and-canada/
  3. View Advert Datsun/Nissan L28 Engine Here is a long block for a Datsun/Nissan 240Z, 260Z, 280Z, 280ZX. This is an N42 block and N47 head. Per the previous owner the block was rebuilt and never ran, to some degree I believe this since the piston tops look very clean and the head gasket appears to be brand new. However, Kevin at the Z Clinic feels that there is too much fore/aft movement of the crank and warrants a closer look. I'd assume it will need a quick once over at minimum. Also included is a flywheel, alternator, and front pulley (all in the condition I received them, surface rust). For an additional $200 I'll include the 4-screw round-top SU carbs that I got with this engine, they are partially disassembled for rebuild (just as I received them) and an E48 intake manifold for them. Local pick up and cash sale please. Advertiser texasz Date 07/27/2020 Price $500.00 Category Parts for Sale

  5. Sold for $1300, a bit more than this would cost from ZTherapy and without the wait (they are backlogged 4 months last I talked to them).
  6. The location on the side of the block where it is seems like a poor location. Every time one changes the oil it seems like it would make a huge mess all down the side of the block, starter, etc.
  7. Has anyone done an oil filter relocation on an S30? If so do you have pix and the relocation kit you used? I thought that there was a kit for the Z though I was not having much luck finding it nor pictures of people who had done this to see where the filter's new location was.

    Test For Leaks

    I'm replacing the engine so I will have access to the header and would like to check the exhaust system for leaks. I was thinking that I would plug 5 of the 6 ports and blow a fog machine down the 6th port and watch to see if fog comes out anywhere from front to rear. Is this a bad idea? Would the fog from a fog machine damage the muffler? Do you have a better way to test for leaks?
  9. Quick question on engine and accessory paint colors...I know that the block is a blueish green which can be bought from Bansai Motorworks. The real question is how much of the engine was this color? Like was the alternator mount this color or different? How about the AC mounting bracket? Oil pan? etc, etc, etc. If these and other items were different colors then what color were they? Pix would be great as well. Thank you in advance!! 🙂
  10. View Advert LOW VIN ENGINE I have an engine from a very low VIN 240Z. This is an E31 head sitting on an E31 block, block number 2776. From what I've learned this looks to have come out of a sub-500 VIN 240Z. Anyone interested in this? If so shoot me an offer, no lowballers please (the head alone is worth a fair amount).

  12. Thank you Zed Head. I'm not worried about the exhaust manifold as I have headers.
  13. I have a 1970 240Z that I am putting a 280Z engine in (N42 block which should be from a '75-80 Z car). I have heard that there were three different oil pans and some had fitment issues in some cars. So my question is this...will the stock oil pan on the 280Z engine fit in my 240Z without issues? Does anyone have pictures of the different pans and identify which is which?

    Also consider Wolf Creek Racing, that's where I got mine from.
  15. Hardway, I'll have to catch up with you after the holidays (not sure if I want 2 or 3 sets). I'm in Cedar Park...what part of town are you in?
