  1. Sorry for the slow reply. Yes, "Krud Kutter". Either it was mostly rust or I let it set too long. grannyknot, let me know if you have one.
  2. Completely disolved the ring. I see the kits around $60 on-line. If you have a used one for less please let me know.
  3. Thanks Mark. Will do. What is its function?
  4. Hi, I'm trying my hand at restoring a steering wheel and can't determine the function of this metal ring. It is a little rusty but I can't seem to remove it (that woild be nice) but if it doesnt matter I will leave it as is. --Thomas
  5. I don't see Harada on it anywhere like there is on my 240. I have the drain tube, mounting bracket, and most (I believe) of the mounting hardware ... they were just off in the pictures. Thank you, Thomas
  6. Thanks! Yes, once I found the post a few minutes ago that the case was ground and one wire was up and the other wire was down. I had been putting 12V across the two wires in both directions with nothing but a few sparks. Luckily, it doesn't seem to have hurt it and I also see the order of mounting hardware on here which is very helpful.
  7. Hey, I bought this as part of a lot of 240Z parts but not sure if or what year(s) Z it is correct for. The number 4030 is the only marking I can see. Thanks for any help. --Thomas
  8. That matches what I found at http://datsun1200.com/modules/mediawiki/index.php?title=D412 once I kept digging. I had hopes it was a Series 1 for resale value but good to know what its correct fitment is. Thanks to all of you for the help.

  9. Hi, I live close to Huntsville, AL and have an Feb. 71 car that is temporarily off the road due to a gas leak at the tank. You're welcome to come look at it and take pictures, etc. Otherwise ... depending on how long "a few weeks" is ... stay in touch and I'll head that way once I get the leak sorted out. If it matters, my car seems to be at the break between Series 1 and series 2 and as far as I know is original except I have removed the A/C and some of the bits off of the balance tube.
  10. View Advert NOS Distributor I could use some help with with what vehicle this fits. I've believe it is for a 240 and tried to sort it myself but cannot find anything definitive. I would want the buyer to pay the actual shipping cost. Thanks, Thomas (Sorry to post twice. I couldn't see a way to edit the original ad.)

  14. Hi, I need the original Nikki fuel pump and of course the am radio.
  15. @siteunseen Hi, I sent him a message. --Thomas
  16. Thank you EhlersRS/Robert S. I would appreciate your help every so often because sometimes I don't know what is correct for my car ... what is original, added, changed or missing. Mine is -23692 originally yellow but painted red. The only rust I've found so far is a dime-sized hole under the battery tray. --Thomas
  17. My car is a 2/71 production date. I have my heat/vent control system apart because the levers were either hard to move or wouldn't move at all. I have cleaned and greased the cables and getting ready to reassemble everything. I found a period correct AM radio and am installing it as well. My question is what, if anything, attaches or mounts to the two holes in the attached photo. The holes are threaded. Thanks for any info, --Thomas
  18. ajmcforester, I hope you don't mind me reopening such an old thread. I am trying to repair/replace the antenna on my 2/71 240Z. My question is how does the line attach to the mast? As you can see from the picture, they were separated so that the mast would go up but not always down. Also, the tip is broken off so it may not even be worth the effort to repair it. I've seen two styles of tips ... a blunt tip and a pointed tip. If I have to look for a replacement, which style is correct for the motor I have marked "Harada 6424"? Thank you, --Thomas
  19. Thanks to both of you. I'll hunt down some wire and give it a try.
  20. Thanks Namerow. I never even thought of making my own. Do you mind adding a picture so I have something to shoot for? ... or, if someone else here has an original one they could photograph next to a ruler. --Thomas
  21. I need the lid spring for the ash tray out of a 2/71 production 240Z. It's the plastic ash tray that covers the fuse panel. Thanks, --Thomas
  22. I'm trying to get back to the correct parts on a 2/71 production date 240Z ... are these below stock or have they been replaced? I have run across some things that appear to be series 1 ... maybe leftovers as 2/71 was the first month of series 2, right? Also, I've never seen the stickers like there are on the window ... they look like they say "Japan" in white with a faded red background and a faded red circle (Japanese flag?) Thanks for any help. --Thomas
  23. I really hate that for you. There are a lot of variables at play here ... What year? Numbers-matching? 1-owner? 2-owner? What's original and what's not? Any prior body work? Original paint or respray? Everything there? Documentation? I'd insist on meeting the appraiser at the car with the answers to these questions and I'd say things like "You know it's going to be impossible for me to find another 46 year old car just exactly like this one ... orange ... I only like the orange ones ... and in this good of shape ... especially with just 46,000 original miles!", "My daughter was born in this car.", whatever ... just don't use the word rust or even admit the car has any. If I assume the whole car is as nice as the exterior "before" picture you posted and it was a 71-72 without the rust, I would be looking for them to pay me $20K for the car plus $2K expenses for me to find one ... probably in California ... and get it shipped home plus $2K "pain and suffering" because the car is 'my baby' ... so, $24K ... I'd round up to $25K. I wouldn't tell them all that, I'd just say I can't replace it for anything less than $25K. It's so easy to find comparable cars on the interwebs at that price or higher. I'd also be happy with $23K and the car, but I would not keep the car. Instead I would part it out or sell it whole to my Z friends and pocket the cash the scrap man would have made. You might not wan't to fool with it. At $25K I think most insurance companies want to settle and be done with you. You're insurance can also work on your behalf, but that would be my absolute last resort ... they will co-conspire to give you the driveshaft. It's a flippin 240Z man ... they owe you!
  24. @9teen7t240z I think your reserve is a tad high. You'd be smart for to change the format to "Buy it Now" at $15,101.00
  25. XXX Beautiful!!! Can I assume a complete and stock interior (uncracked dash, AM radio, ash tray, coin tray, etc.) as nice as the rest of the car? No rust or body work ever? If so, and you had a picture or two of a nice underbody I'll say $27,916.43 unless it's stolen between now and then. BTW, what's your street address? Revised 8/19/16: $27,816.43 ... looks like the antenna button is missing.
