  1. One is aside the other on top of the cube. To Rich, Your welcome. i want to say, get yourself (if you don't already have one) the Original service manual, it's the best guide to solve problems. But.. Parts like the Warning Module, are in a block diagram, parts inside are not specified.. I remember that i made some pic's of the inside… of that amplifier.. or as they call it on the unit: warning module!! Lot's of... eh.... Cmos 4000 series? real late '70 electronics !!!! Look at it! You can't believe this electronic unit is almost 40 years old!!! todays electronics are hopeless when you look at/compare to this gem. Every part can easely be replaced.. try that with modern electronics.. pfoei! For as far i can see you only need to replace 3 capacitors on the circuitboard.. (In pic 1) on the right one cap (C3??) just right from the black tape round the 3 wires. and 2 caps in the bottom of the pic each on 1/3 of the board..(marked C1 and C2!) Maybe also the tantalum caps..(The blue droplets like parts) @Captain Obvious I don't know really but i think they are as strong as the rest of the part on the board? In the '70-80-90 when i repaired electronics you had lots of books, today with the internet.. you just type the number which is on the Integrated circuit (ic) and you get all the info on it you'll ever need !!! for example a 4011.. https://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/63585/HITACHI/HD14011B.html
  2. On page BE64 of the Original october 1978 servicemanual i see (bottom of the page) there are 8 lightbulbs inside the display! So they will have a thin film over them in a certain color.. As i'm sitting here doing absolutly NOTHING! ….. i can make you a few pics… yes... 😎 Hope i don't clog up the site... hahaha… are these enough? 😁 Took some of the … as they call it in the serv.man. (Huh??) amplifier.. the "warning module" .. as well. (forgot to make a pic of the wiring diagram in the serv.man. But that is only a schematic with 8 bulbs and a switch.) see the servicemanual, a few pages are dedicated to the warning system! What i would like to see are a few pics of all those sensors in the car, especially the battery sensor.. but i think those are gone.. (sensing the acid in the battery is a violent environment.)
  3. It looks like there are some lights in the top and right side of the unit, but i'm not opening this unit as it is in great condition. Since the unit has about 9 different wires, each display is simply activated by the ancillary sensor. If i had these sensors i could make a complete system for my own 280zx! The warning module is already in my possession
  4. Hahahaha… yeah… one? it has got 3 of those! The switch has one, the print on the upper and on the right have both one.. haha but on the other end there is a 10 pole connector.. with only one black.. (yeah somewhere in the yellow sleeve is a 3 into one black..) Furthermore, i think i have seen such a display work long time ago and the STOP in this display is red.. (OK is green) and the rest is lit a sort of orange.. No... even more colors! Now i know where i saw one.. in a brochure! Learn a little dutch on the side CO! Hihihi… i think the display "car54280zx" (Don't know his first name.) see's is the last one.. haha "defect" signaal (signal) ! As you see there are 4-5 different colors in the display.. I got this pic out of a may 1st 1979 folder. btw.. the battery level.. going to be a little bit difficult with todays battery's 😕
  5. I think a shutter would be to complicated.. maybe just a small bulb or LED per layer? It has a 10 wire connector with 8 wires, 2 of them for the on-switch (they go separate to the connector) so there could be 5 signs to be lit.. There can be lights build in on top and from the right.. ( as you can see in pic 1of4) And… NO, i'm not going to open this unit! hahaha.. Maybe one day i need it for my own first edition slick roof 280zx..
  6. Now i wanted to find out what it is.. i looked if i got such a thing in my warehouse.. AND... YEP! got one! It say's: STANLEY on the back.. It looks like there is a little lightbulb in the right side of the display.. and the display is build out of layers of glass of some sort.. with small dots of glass on them.. Just by shining some light on the specific plate the sign gets visable.. What a cool technology! There are .. i took a good look in there .. around 20 plates of glass or ( i suspect) plexiglass in there, some have the pixels others are just dividers.. STOP is in front, then the headlight sign and OK comes next.. for as far i can see, behind those is the rest of the signs. By using a (colored) filter inbetween the lightbulb and the sign, these can light up in different colors!
  7. In europe those parts would bring a lot of money..😮
  8. Yes CO, those are the right colors.. greenish for the OK and orange for the warnings, all of them.. so only the OK sign is green.. the trouble could be in the box with partnr: 25065 P7100 named : warning module..
  9. In 2001-2002.. something simular was a design for the, then new 350z...
  10. My 240z feb.'71 has a E88 head Original.. HLS30-26074
  11. Most people switch wheels with summer or winter tires.. i just switch cars.. nothing nicer to drive a 300zxtt in the summer and a 240z in the snow!!! (with good maintenance no problem!)

  12. Wow! I never used a Original nissan gasket twice! Can i get a full engine gasket set for my L24 (i got a reserve engine laying disassembled) from Kameari? (got an adress?) When my 280zx is ready i start on that engine.. it's a 48 year old engine that is in a very nice lightly used state!

  14. Btw.. that thingy is it from a rear 240/260z (handbrake) assembly? not sure.. (It sits on the handbrakecable?? near the rear brake )
