  1. Hey Steve...! Yes it is a 73. Chet and I got it running the other day. No unusual noises, but it is starved for fuel after about 15 seconds...maybe the fuel pump isn't pumping properly...? The wiper issue is just annoying at this point. I am also looking for an early (70-72) exhaust downpipe in good condition if you know of one available. All the best...Ryals
  2. Trying to diagnose why my 1973 wipers are on all of the time and can't be shut off. Any ideas...? I am getting close to finishing the restoration and installed a battery. At first, they didn't work at all...now always on. I appreciate any help...Ryals
  3. Guess they sent me the wrong one...Thanks...!
  4. Has anyone found that the $80.00 parking brake cables from MSA (Motorsports Auto) are way too long. I couldn't figure out why my handbrake was nowhere near tight, so I took it off the car and measured 76" from end of clevis bracket to end of clevis bracket. I bought it a year ago and am just getting around to installing it...The Life of Riley (me)
  5. View Advert White Diamond Vinyl Kit I bought this kit from a trim shop in Michigan. It would certainly work for a driver, but not what I need for my restoration. The diamond embossing is weak in spots and the material is thinner than factory. They included the sill rails in the same white material (supposed to be black) and those are included in the kit. The kit was shipped from somewhere in the Middle East. I haven't even tried to get a refund. I paid $200.00...would like to get half that plus shipping.

  7. None of the parts houses have a radiator with the fan guard. I really don't want to solder the flap onto a new $350.00 radiator and ruin the factory finish. The radiator shop I deal with says "they paint radiators all the time". There is nothing like a factory finish.
  8. BTW...Motorsports sells the braided heater hoses, but lists them for 70 - 72 only. I am switching to the 70-72 style wrap-around-the-back coolant pipe as I have gone with roundtops and the earlier crossover and intake. I assume the heater hoses will work...what say any of you...?
  9. I think I have made my decision. Even though I bought smooth rubber heater hoses, I will buy the braided set (3 pieces) and the short reducer. I will use smooth rubber on the radiator hoses as they are much easier to replace than the heater hoses. Now another quandary...I have a new aluminum radiator ready to install and I don't mind the look. My issue is, again...originality. I have yet to find a new radiator with the little fan guard. Pulling my hair out in north Georgia...!
  10. I thought that keeping the smooth on left side and braided on the right might be an acceptable compromise....
  11. My 1973 240z restoration is at a standstill. I am having a hard time dropping the big bucks on the braided hoses for the heater, radiator, power brake booster, etc. Are they really necessary for a car to be respected...? I can't seem to find the power brake booster hoses in smooth rubber like the heater and radiator ones. I found a smooth rubber reducer for left side of the engine so at least everything on that side would be smooth including the radiator hoses, if I went "cheap". I love the braided look, just amazed at the pricing...! Any comments or suggestions...?
  12. Any recommendations on the correct stock starter for a 1973 240z...? Thanks...Ryals
  13. I have finally begun the interior replacement / installation on my 1973 240z. Is there an "approved" sequence for installing the interior pieces...? Also...I bought DynaMat sound deadener. My restoration is very detailed and I have spent lots of dollars trying to get it "right". Is it truly a "sin" to use the dynamat...? Thanks...Ryals
  14. Maybe the small hose isn't supposed to come out of that particular hole...?
