    Just going to match them for now. Hopefully getting this done tonight, but my garage is too hot:)

    Luckily mine is a very low mile z. So hopefully it's just remove pin, remove CMC. Bench bleed, install, bleed etc...

    I have been driving it every chance I get. I enjoy it so much. Ac blows cold enough, but the fan is so loud I mostly prefer driving with the windows down. Last week I pressed the clutch in, and boom, warm clutch fluid squirted onto my leg. Then the clutch wouldn't do much. I luckily was close to home and a few pumps I could get it in first. So now it's time to change the clutch master. Which is a first for me. Luckily LynchBurg Nissan had a Nos one. They still make this part but it looks a little different.

    Thank you. The seal from the GMB 550-8040 tore. So I had to buy another Nos lizzy from another datsun. Oh well.

    Thank you! I’m having a lot of fun. I have used several zinc shops over the years. I would suggest a local shop since shipping gets expensive. I use a shop in Spokane wa or Portland Oregon most of the time. I built my own vapor blasting rig. I did a detailed thread on here about it.

    I tore a seal on the shaft of the fuel pump. The one that keeps gas from going in the head in case of an rip and keeps oil from the engine bay out of the fuel pump. Someone said the GMB 550-8040 was exactly the same inside. That isn’t true but it’s close. Their seal is actually a better design and works and should function perfectly. So now 3 fuel pumps to make one nikki pump. Still I’m below 100$ total into the project. She looks amazing.

    Vapor blasted my 2nd e31 Head. This one also has some casting issues. Hopefully less this time.

    Vapor blasting sure does wonders.

    Working on a Nikki fuel pump for my series 1. My 240z didn’t come with the original fuel pump. Bought this one on eBay and also a nos one from Datsun 500 for 30$. The plan is to use the screws and all the rubber gaskets and internals. It’s a little more haggered then I would have wanted. Hopefully it comes out nice. The internals of the pumps are identical. I will vapor blast the 240z Nikki body and it should look brand new. I am using this write up for guidance. https://www.classiczcars.com/forums/topic/50679-rebuilding-the-nikki-fuel-pump/

    Thanks! It's been fun, I love having a paint job I don't care about. I can actually use the car:)

    Did you get new seals or did you re glue them?
