  1. Now this is something I WILL install!! For the price of a cheap SIM (£5/ month) you have a tracker / Geo fenced car that cuts off the fuel or ignition supply with what is totally stealth!!! You can also install a loud 120db+ siren inside the car to go off when it disables / goes out of the geo fence. £11.50 40% Off | GPS Tracker Motorcycle Mini Car GPS Relay MV740 9-90V Vehicle Tracker Vibrate Cut Line Alert Geo fence Alarm Free APP PK CJ740 https://a.aliexpress.com/_msdJfl3
  2. Here’s a great write from my buddy in the UK who recently did this job - it would be very beneficial for you to read it .... https://zclub.net/community/index.php?threads/valve-stem-oil-seal-replacement-without-the-faf.28265/
  3. You will not mess it up. In fact your risk of having issues will be much higher with the head removed. I totally get the logic but for now, if I was in your shoes and knowing that only cyl 4 is fouling, I would just focus on that one. You know the others are good as there is no fouling on the other plugs. Follow the procedure given further up in the thread on doing it with the head on.
  4. This seller also has lots of goodies, worth approaching them to see if they have what you need ... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SILVOLITE-Pistons-Set-6-for-Nissan-Datsun-240Z-2-4-L24-260Z-2-6-L26-030-75MM-/152918821696?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286
  5. Not oversized but could you make up the difference with oversized rings? Not ideal but may work for you? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Datsun-240z-L28-ITM-Flat-Top-STD-Pistons-Rings-Nissan-260z-280z-280zx-/174758430407?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286
  6. Now do yourself a favour - cover them up again with protective film during the install! I managed to put a scratch on mine, that while not very visible to most people’s eyes, I see it every time ;)
  7. You’re most welcome. I would do exactly what Mark said above and leave the distributor alone for now.
  8. Actually dude, reading up the thread and thinking about this again, I think you would do well to replace the valve seal on no.4 WITHOUT taking the head off. One of my friends in the uk just did this on his L28 and it was a piece of cake!!
  9. Ok, so you are eliminating many of the possibilities which is great. What I’m not getting from your replies is: 1. Have you tried a different cap and rotor? 2. I don’t know what a “hitachi single” means - can you elaborate please? Is that a conversion made to a points distributor to make it electronic? Do you have access to another distributor to drop in and test out to eliminate your dizzy as a possible culprit?
  10. Someone in the uk is looking for exactly this!! I will forward to them for you!
  11. No offence taken! Bojo the clown is a very intelligent man who looks like a clown and whose moral compass only points towards the direction of his own personal gain! Much like many other politicians worldwide. Back to the original post, I am still intrigued by this car. It simply defies logic at that price.
  12. OK, that's good. So, the way I see it is this: 1. It's not oil on the plug itself 2. Your coil is healthy and your mix on that carb is OK as the rest on that bank of 3 are not getting fouled the same way 3. I am making an assumption without reading up the thread that you have done your valve lash adjustments and that they are consistent across those three cyls. 4. I think I recall you doing a compression test showing no.4 is pretty much inline with the rest in compression, so you don't have compression issues or valves leaking issues. Assuming this is an electrical issue (which is
  13. Don’t laugh at me but I always found extra virgin olive oil has brought back plastics!!! Probably zero uv protection, but if you want to bring a faded black bit of vinyl to life, it just works! :p
  14. I’m assuming your other plugs are from the same bank of three - so it seems to me that no.4 is not getting enough spark / electrical energy. Is it safe to assume they are all gapped the same?
  15. Excellent! So now you know it’s not a head / seal issue!
