    Drove my 71 daily for 20 years. <br /><br /><br />
    The current 72 is a fair weather driver with minimal updates to improve the enjoyment. <br /><br />
    In 2017 added a R200 with a M-factory LSD(now sold) and an 83 close ratio 5 speed.<br /><br />
    Added an R180 CLSD 3.90 in 2018

    Okay so do you know if you have compression pull the plugs and run a compression check or just put you finger in the plug hole. Could the valves be bent or frozen in place. Compression will tell you. Check the oil in the carb and lift the piston let it drop. Compression spark and fuel is all that needed except the timing could be way off???? 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.

    Pretty big day today 70 240Z

    Great idea. I have been doing that for years. ZCCW member get a discount from our sponsor. I find the parts numbers, replacement number and go to the parts counter. Their system can verify the parts if you give them the numbers, but they don’t seem to be able to look up numbers for early cars. 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.

    Don’t second guess the water pump do it while the front cover is off. Order a stainless steal front cover bolt set. Just pulled my front cover and two water pump bolts snapped in side the front cover. I was lucky. With the front cover off I was able to use penetrating oil, heat and a good set of vice grips. Good luck and enjoy the process. 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.

    PARTS WANTED

    here is the end of the cable

    PARTS WANTED

    I’ll dig through my photos from years ago. But here is how I would describe it. The inner wire of the cable has a medal button attached to it at the very end. In front of it is a nylon looking grommet shaped to snap into the back side of the tab at the top of the gas petal. That grommet allow the gas petal to ride on the inner wire and allows the gas petal to move freely until the lever pulls the wire to make contact. When the lever is pulled back it holds the gas petal at that position. Works good for holding a higher RPM at cold start without using the choke. Aids in warming a cold engine. It could be used for increasing idle speed for sync the carbs but SUs have a screw for that. Really doesn’t do much. 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.
