    1970 S/N 509 electrical problems

    ZHead, Thanks for the reply. "tighten down" means when I tighten the 2 screws that hold the side marker assembly to the fender. I've have new side marker assemblies, so after your post about the screws grounding, I compared the new assemblies with the old. Both are grounded at the socket and the complete assembly. The contact within the socket is not grounded. I guess I'm missing something. I sent out the T/S switch to be rebuilt. Was told by the shop that it was in poor condition. I should get it back this week. We'll see what improvement it makes Thanks again.

    1970 S/N 509 electrical problems

    Trying to finish the project but I have an electrical problem that I'm been unable to make any progress on. I've had the combo light switch inspected and refurbished as needed. I'm waiting for the turn signal switch to be returned from also being checked. The problems I have seems to be a ground somewhere as the dash lights are very, very weak, bright light indicator does not work, headlights don't work. I have taillights, turn signals, backup lights but when I tighten down the side marker lights , I loose everything. If my switches (light and T/S) are OK then I guess my next step is to pull the dash and check the wiring harness. Where can I find the part number for the dash harness? Any other ideas would be appreciated. Thannks

    parts wanted, parts for sale

    drpchuynh, these are exactly what I'm looking for. A bit pricey. If I don't find any used clips I'll have to bite the bullet and buy these new ones.
  4. Finishing my 1970 240z S/N #509 project. I need to find the "plastic" inspection panels clips. Are they available or maybe someone has a couple from a parts car. I have a 280z dash with gauges for sale. Excellent condition but I don't know if the gauges work. Also for sale the rear window louvers, door panels, seat covers, carpeting, headliner and taillight set. This is all original used stuff, "driver" condition. I like to see it go to someone that could use it instead of throwing it all out. Also a new dash cover, not the full cover . What is the part that is under the washer reservoir toward the firewall, between the clutch cylinder and fender? It is somewhat brick shaped with a single wire going to it Larry Quincy,MI ellagee@charter.net 517 795-9658

    280Z dash for sale or trade for 240Z dash

    Finally got to getting some picture of the 280Z dash. I would like to trade for a 240Zdash but will sell this one with all the gauges for $600 plus shipping
  6. I have a very excellent condition 280Z dash for sale. All gauges are still in the dash. I would like to sell it complete as is. I need a non-cracked 240z dash. ellagee@charter.net

    Taillight panel paint

    I have not been able to get back to this thread since my original post but have been keeping track of all the posts. Thanks to everyone for their input. I sure have many options at this point and am very pleased with all the very helpful responses. I'm new to the Z community ( purchased a 1970 Vin #509 this past November) and doing a total restoration. I'm sure I'll have many more questions. This is certainly the "Go To" place . Thanks again to all. Larry Quincy,MI

    Taillight panel paint

    I purchased a can of spray paint from a vendor that was supposed to be a exact match for the taillight panel but it seems to be too light, more of a "battleship grey" than the correct "charcoal grey" . Does anyone have a source for the correct color paint? Also I need to touch up the grey panels on an original set of wheel covers. Does anyone have a source for that color?

    Looking for a 240Z

    Thanks all for the very good advice but....... I found a car some time ago on Ebay. Turned out to be very solid with very little rust, complete and original. It's number 509. I was fully aware that it needed a full restoration but that's what I was looking for. I did buy the car sight unseen , I know, a big, big no, no. I'm very pleased with the car and so far no surprises. I'm starting to tear the car down including glass and upholstery, pull the engine and have it rebuilt. Do what ever mechanicals it needs then send the shell to my friend who does excellent body and paint work. Then it's a matter of putting it back to together. I've done a few other cars like this ( I have 8 Studebakers). So, I will be very busy this winter in the garage. I can get around to send some pictures soon. Thanks again

    New Find.70 240Z

    I also just bought a 1970 Z, #509. Very complete unmolested. It has the same wheels as your white one but I was assuming those were aftermarket and thought the car originally came with regular wheels and hubcaps. Which is correct? p.s I'm new to the 240z community and have many questions.

    I'm new to the club and a recent 240Z owner. How do I get my car info on the registry?

    14x6 Rims

    Just recently bought a 240Z with aftermarket wheels. Are these the right size for my Z? If so I'm interested in buying. ellagee@charter.net

    Looking for a 240Z

    When I originally posted , what I listed as the VIN # I found out was actually the engine #. Is there a source where I might be able to get the VIN # based on the engine #.

    Looking for a 240Z

    I'm looking to buy a 240Z and have been checking different web sites for a vehicle. I came upon this forum and hopefully someone can be of some help as to what I should be concerned about in finding a decent car. Secondly, I bought a brand new 1971 240Z when I was stationed in Okinawa. I had it shipped to Philadelphia when I was discharged. I recently came upon the original paperwork for the car, VIN L24-027948. It was the mustard-yellow color. Can someone tell be the correct paint code and name for that color? Is there a registry for the 240Z that I might, in a long shot, track down the original car? ellagee@charter.net
