  1. It is time to delve into learning to weld and replace floor pans/frame rails on some of my 240Zs. I have a rotisserie that I picked up locally as part of a trade, and now is the time to look for a welder. I am looking at the Millermatic 211 as a possibility, and a one-year old one is for sale locally. I wanted to ask you guys with welding experience (especially if you have a Miller 211): is this a good machine to learn to weld on and can you 'grow' with it as you learn, or will you be looking for another machine down the road. I have a spare parts body to practice on before I touch a project car. Thanks!
  2. Thank you both. I knew there had to be an authoritative thread out there on this. I would rather rebuild and save if possible.
  3. I need to either rebuild or replace the steering rack in a late 70 build Series 1 car. I have a 2/71 parts car that I can rob the rack from to rebuild without putting mine out of commission. However, is there an online tutorial for this and a rebuild kit, or is it recommended that I find a replacement rebuilt/new rack? Thanks in advance.
  4. Is there a good source that details what stock radios came in 240zs and when? Thanks!
  5. That is one from a spare that I had off a parts car. Thanks for the links I will take a look. I did have to put the door back together for a car show. I robbed the window roller off another car, as it was non-existent on the one I was working on. That seems to have done the trick for now.
  6. Zed Head. Here you go. I agree, pics help. The screwdriver is pointing to it.
  7. Thanks Patcon. Maybe my search skills are poor, but I cannot find the post.
  8. I think it was grannyknot, but I cannot find it.
  9. The rollers are intact, but the backing plastic piece behind them are either broken or non existent. I pulled regulators from some of my parts cars and same deal. Any ideas?
  10. I took the door card off. It looks like the edge of the window might be catching on the lock mechanism. See the pic of the bent wire before and after. Any ideas on how to adjust?
  11. Patcon, no I cannot grab the window and pull it up. It is stuck when it is up a couple of inches.
  12. I have a 70 build 240Z and recently the drivers window refuses to roll up. It had this problem previously and I got it to work, but the same problem is back. However, before I tear the door apart, I wanted to ask the forum if they had experienced this before and how they solved it. Here are the symptoms: The window will roll up several inches, but them gets jammed and refuses to budge. It rolls back no problem. It also seems to interfere with the door release handle. Any ideas before I go the route of taking it all apart again? Thanks!
  13. Thanks everyone for their help so far. I have an Exedy 6029 Clutch kit (pictured) and the rear Main seal (also pictured). I also attached a photo of the car in question.
  14. Thanks all for the suggestions. It does not look like this will be as straight forward as I thought. It is a 70 build car with the original 4 speed. For the job, I have a storage lift (great deal on craigslist), so height is no problem. I have a resurfaced stock flywheel ready and an Exeedy clutch and pressure plate to go in. I also thought, if it was possible, that I would replace the engine rear main seal at the same time. I have redline oil to go back in. However, from what you guys are saying, I should replace a whole bunch of other components while I have the trans out. What would you recommend I replace? I do not want to pull it and then not have done some easy fixes while I was at it.
  15. I am getting ready to replace the clutch in my Series 1 car. I have all the items assembled, but have never attempted this before. Any advice? Thanks!
