  1. well, the only numbers I seem to have stamped on mine are e46 and e88, so i guess I don't have the 260 ones I thought I did. oh well... As for the nasty carbs, I would think it should be acceptable to use the 3 screw carbs in even the best full on restoration, since even Nissan dealers were putting them onto the cars as a solution..... but then again, I have never done a restoration, so how would I know what the "rules" are!
  2. Hey all! Been out of the hobby for a while, since my son was born. I feel like a bonehead for asking the most common knowledge question, but which casting is the 260z intake manifold? I have a few intake/carb combinations from different cars, but I forgot which is which. Thanks, and try not to be cruel!
  3. Well, someone has sold me a plastic tank (by email, as a result of this site). Pending its condition on arrival, I'll have solved a sticky delemma.... Thanks for all the help, I feel like I know my car much better! P.S. If I get any more responses from people having this part, I'd be glad to pass your name on to them if you'd like, Mike.... Later, Tim
  4. She's a 6/71 car, and her name is 'Becky'. The '72 tank I tried wouldn't fit. I guess that ought to narrow things down to one part number, I really am glad to have so many knowledgeable people take interest in this discussion! Becky thanks you. Tim
  5. Ok, I guess there are a lot of creative ways to solve this delemma, but I'd sure prefer to put the stock part in if I can find one. I'm the sort of person who could easily turn a "simple" fabrication job like this into a really expensive and time consuming waste of time. (not knowing what the gas pressure is we're dealing with, I suppose I'd probably play it safe with a short section of pvc pipe and some fittings, but how do I know the purpose of the relative orientation of the inlet hoses? etc., etc., etc.) I guess it just seems to me that this shouldn't be a highly sought after part, and thus is probably still on that nasty derelect that one of you has rusting away on the back fourty!!! Thanks for all the good ideas! -Tim
  6. I know I need the cd! Looks like it turned out pretty well... (last time I was on with you guys you were still working on it, as I recall.... In the mean time, thanks for the info! I'll still try to find a used one if I can though, to (sorry about the pun) try to avoid getting 'plugged' by the dealer;) Thanks again!
  7. Hi I have a 71 240, which the previous (very young) owner removed parts from, thinking they were "getting rid of all that emissions junk". Turns out, I have about half of an a/c system, and this sort of triangular tank, which mounts inside the hatchback, just over the fuel filler tube is missing. I understand that the one I'm looking for is made of plastic, NOT METAL (thanks Mike!) I have been able to locate one on a '72 model car, but it is a different design (too big, made of metal). mine is the older car without seatbelt retractors. (but not so old as to have rear hatch vents). I'd sure like to be able to put more than half a tank of gas in this car sometime, so if you can get me the part I'm describing here, please contact me!
