  1. That’s exactly what it is an F-104 Star fighter. A rocket with wings...dangerous airplane. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So, it appears the last portion to the telescoping portion is damaged. I pulled on it while running the motor and it pulled out of the rest of the receptacle. So it definitely not whole now. Maybe I can use parts from another one and rebuild this thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Well, motor runs but the antenna doesn’t move on either lead. Looks like a $20 paperweight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Disregard....I had my meter on the diode function not the resistance function....duh!!! 25 ohms across ground to either blue wire and 1 ohm between the blue wires Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Dave, It shows a short no matter what connection I make. Similar results if I touch any lean and the body of the antenna. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. No that’s the 280 he selling now. Here’s a pic of one of the 260s with extra parts pilled on the hood. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Found a 280z in great shape. Has rebuilt a V8 in it. No body rust. Interior in good shape except the seats are rough, guy said he wants 8k but might take less. He just sold two 260z’s for 3K each and we’re both shipped to Germany. Location is Billings Montana. I’ve seen the car in person and took these pics three days ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Gents, bought a used replacement antenna for my car while on a layover in Billings Montana. Got it for $20 but not sure it works or how to test it. See below pics of the antenna and the connector. I did a little research before posting and this is what I learned. The connector has three wires. Black, Blue w/ red stripe and Blue w/white stripe. The threads I read said both Blue wires are positive and one sends it up and one send it down. The black is obviusly the ground. So my understanding is just connecting a 12v battery to the positive on either blue and the ground on black should activate the antenna up or down. Does anyone know for sure before I end up damaging the antenna. Also if its not working are these things repairable? Thanks
  9. That pic of the tree growing in the engine compartment is crazy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Just watched the movie The Dirt on Netflix on a flight this AM. It’s movie about the story of the band Motley Crew. Anyway there was a 280z in there for about 4 seconds. 1:17:19 remaining in the movie when you see it. That band was insane. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Everything in Norway is expensive. You’ll find a buyer.
  12. I know this isn’t TV or Movies but there is an article in the April 2019 Road and Track about Zs. The article says the name Datsun came from when Masujiro Hashimoto of Kwaishinsha Motors named his first automotive effort DAT. The first four letters of his three backers, Den, Aoyama and Takeuchi. Petty cool... learned something. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hey, nice work on a tough job. Glad I could help. That’s no easy task! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’m in the same boat as you are. I want to keep the car mostly stock but add a few ponies and have a fresh engine. I’d be happy with 200hp. Let us know when you get this rebuild started so we can follow your progress Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I recall you need to pop the plastic piece out of the handle in your first pic and then put to other end in the hole. Then you’ll be able to pop the rod back in the plastic piece. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
