  1. If you can send pics of any issues to sales@zcardepot.com we can take a look and see whats going on. Thanks.
  2. New billet aluminum 3-bolt thermostat neck for Datsun 280Z and 280ZX. Stock replacement. The 3-bolt style has not been available for years, so here it is. We are working on the lower housing to go with this neck..... https://zcardepot.com/products/thermostat-housing-coolant-neck-280z-280zx?_pos=1&_sid=68659eddf&_ss=r
  3. Dont know for sure. Appears to be an old stock item, we only have a limited supply. Dont know for sure they are reproductions, just assuming they are.
  4. New product that is a hard to find part. Reproduction of the original "KS" washer bottles for 240Z, 260Z and 280Z. Includes rubber pump mount but does not come with pump. Our 800-751 pump will fit in the washer bottle and makes for a very original looking ( looks OEM to me) washer bottle setup. Same "KS" writing as the original bottles. https://zcardepot.com/products/windshield-washer-tank-bottle-and-pump-oe-style-replacement-240z-260z-280z-1?_pos=1&_sid=91d7a8e0b&_ss=r
  5. These are like 87 maxima. Very hard to find new or reman calipers. Our Latest kit has switched to the 240SX caliper for availability.
  6. The shrink tube is designed for a water proof seal so it has "encapsulant", kind of a liquid rubber internal when heated that fills any gaps and adds to the strength. On the end we have found folding it over or squeezing it while hot and then triming the end both work good.
  7. New product we have here for those looking for an original restoration on their 240Z, 260Z and 280Z. These are the metal tabs that are spotwelded all over the body and used for retaining the electrical wiring harness or rubber hoses. We counted up 82 of these used on a series 1 240Z! The single tabs come in many different lengths on the Z car originally, our "short" tab we found over 40 of this length on a series 1 and our "long" tab is the longest we found and can be cut down to custom lengths. Our metal tabs come with a small round hole at the end so that they can be plug welded to the body to resemble original spot welds. We also offer a special shrink tube that can be applied with a heat gun to achieve the original "rubber" coating on the metal tabs. This is a special encapsulant lined shrink tube that is thicker than standard shrink. Our next step is to supply a diagram for the location and size of these tabs. If this information is already out there feel free to post a link. https://zcardepot.com/products/wiring-weld-on-frame-body-tab-240z-260z-280z-510?variant=31229189488753
  8. New original style frame rail repair parts for Datsun 240Z. Replicas of the original floor support frame rails are now available at Z Car Depot. We went to a lot of effort on these to make them as close to the originals as we could. These are .060" thickness which is a little thicker than the original fram rail metal so we were able add strength but maintain the same proportions as stock. We made the gussets and the straight frame rail in two pieces because if you are keeping your original floor boards or replacing them, the fitment will be a little different. Once welded together they can be dressed to look like one continuous part. https://zcardepot.com/products/frame-rail-sheet-metal-replacement-240z-70-73?_pos=2&_sid=13acc1eea&_ss=r
  9. We have printed these and they come out pretty good, just never got into production. Its a 20+ hour print. We have 3 printers right now and im about to throw in the towel on all of them. Between inconsistant quality of filament and the machines having their good and bad days its difficult to get production out of them without putting a lot of time in! Hoping to see some new machines at SEMA this year that might offer some answers. Ryan
  10. Body side moulding as installed in the 70's and 80's on most all of the Datsun Z cars is in stock! Aluminum channel with black vinyl insert trim. If you need to replace all of your mouldings or just get some missing pieces we have it. https://zcardepot.com/products/door-edge-side-moulding-trim-original-style-240z-260z-280z?variant=20006828179569
  11. In Stock: Valve spring compressor tool for "L" series OHC engines. Make quick work of removing rocker arms or valve spring components with this tool that leverages off of the camshaft. $89.00 https://zcardepot.com/valve-spring-compressor-tool-l-l24-l28-l16-l18
  12. We have not done any specific testing for emissions purposes, mainly because we just do not have the test equipment in our area. With the FAST EFI the air/fuel ratio can be adjusted at idle, cruise and WOT. So I would think that emissions test results could be improved with this feature. We have checked into getting CARB approval but any device that alters the original fueling cannot be approved, there would have to be a "locked in" tune. With some wiring and hose extensions the system can be made to look like factory and the ECU mounts in the same location as the stock ECU.
  13. Thanks for the feedback Bsly622. We have been having great results with the FAST system on the Z cars. About 50 systems out there in use and about 2 years on our test system that we drive year round.
  14. The original design used external floats with flexible tubes running to the metering needle and seat, these doubled as a 'choke' used for cold starts. These parts are directly above the exhaust manifold on the L6 design engine used in the 240/260/280 Z cars, it gets very hot in this location, and the un-shielded floats do little to protect the fuel supply. The HIF44, the basis for the ABF973, encases the float and replaces the moving seat with an internal enrichment valve, thus providing additional metal mass around the hottest areas. Additionally, we use dual-pass-through fuel feeds that help dissipate hot spots in the fuel supply, and help prevent fuel starvation from cornering and acceleration. Finally, the new design uses a temperature compensation valve that increases flow at higher temps as the fuel becomes less dense. The new design works better than the old design that was designed for the cool British climate. 80 F is considered a heat wave there.
  15. They are better able to withstand vaporlock due to the internal float mechanism and thermal compensation mechanism. This was one of the characteristics I discussed with the engineering staff at SU, and it was agreed that it was better than the old external design.
