  2. Matthew, many thanks for the tire size chart. This discussion got me interested in checking the tires on my 1971 240Z as they may be overdue for replacement; although the cars' Goodyear Eagle +4 (195/70R14) tires look brand new and handle well, they were installed in 1990! I always felt that the engine's RPMs at cruise had increased since replacing the original Toyos with the Goodyears, so I measured the circumference of my never-used OEM spare, a Toyo Radial Z-1 175HR14 inflated to 35 psi. The measurement was 80.25", which if my calculations are correct yields an aspect ratio of 84, slightly higher than the other measurements in this discussion. In any case, the high RPM mystery has been solved, and I may choose new tires that are closer to the diameter of the Toyos. This leads to the following question, would it be possible to upsize to a 205/70R14 without any clearance problems on a '71 240Z? I have 7" ARE wheels and a stock suspension.
  3. As of this date (6/26/2012) butterscotch colored seat covers, and the vinyl diamond pattern tunnel and shock tower covers are available from Classic Datsun. Call Les at (760) 940-6365 for details. Finally, I'll be able to complete my '71 240Z resto!
  4. I am the original owner of a '71 240Z and am getting too decrepit to work on the car myself. Are there any 240Z owners on Long Island (NY) that can recommend a shop to take care of repairs, troubleshoot, etc. If I go to m local Nissan dealers, I find that the car is older than most of the repair technicians! The car has only 55K miles, but the original parts are breaking down due to age --much like its' owner. I haven't seen any 240s around here for a LONG time!

    Tach

    The tachometer in my '71 240Z always reads about 200 r.p.m. low, but works OK otherwise. Is there an adjustment, resistor, sender, etc. that can be replaced to correct the readings? I don't want to yank the tach out, or replace the unit just for an error problem. R. Bohl
