  1. Wow, you work quick! ? Love the wheel choice for the look you're going for. Tell us about the engine build plans.
  2. Awesome, thanks for the quick response.
  3. Hi team, Is anyone running a Classic muffler from Z Story? All the videos I've seen show Sean's JDM muffler. I love the sound of the JDM, but prefer the single tip look of the Classic. I'm trying to gauge how tame the Classic is compared to the great sound of the JDM. Thanks!
  4. Hi guys, The interior door release lever on the drivers side is worn down and doesn't match the same black color of the door card. Any ideas on getting this back to the appropriate black color? Thanks!
  5. Totally agree with you guys on BaT. You can learn a lot, and certainly be entertained, by reading the comments, but I don't think it is the place to sell a Z right now. This is unfortunate, as I have a Z I plan on putting up for sale. I think I'll try Hemmings? It is a mostly stock car that probably goes in the $32-$35k range. This class of Z that usually gets picked apart on BaT by all the concours "experts".
  6. I know this is a bit of a Hail Mary, but looking for L24 block 151510. My 73 was originally an Oregon car, so my guess is this is still somewhere on the west coast. I have posted this on FB as well. Any thoughts on the best way to track this needle in a haystack down? Thanks in advance for any help!

  9. Anybody have a copy of the spreadsheet with all the VIN details? Looking up a 71 for sale and this would be very helpful. Thanks!
  10. Hey guys. I have absolutely no problem with where the white Z is going, beauty. But does anyone else think we're starting to get out over our skis based on where the orange listing is going? Paint bad, lots of custom stuff to undo, riveted siding, CB removal, etc. Or tell me if I'm missing something. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1972-datsun-240z-82/
  11. Hi guys, checking in with an update. I had Al at Sparks Performance in San Clemente take a look. He confirmed our compression test results, and used the oil in the cylinder trick to rule out ring issues. He pulled the valve cover and completed a valve adjustment. The PO had the clearances way too tight. The adjustment helped the numbers considerably... Al's first test / after valve adjustment 118 / 127 123 / 145 180 / 195 165 / 185 148 / 175 170 / 193 The car performs much better now, including holding its idle without issue. Still, I'll need to have the head pulled and reworked to solve the issues in 1 & 2. As it is driving much better and I'm not longing for a repair bill, I think I'll hold off on head work and cam replacement for a little while.
  12. Awesome, thanks for the quick reply!
  13. I've been searching for an air filter housing to put onto my round top SUs, but holding out to find the mounting hardware. I have an offer for the housing in great shape, but the seller is telling me he has the mounting bolts (both sides of the wing nuts) from a flat top setup that should work. Does anybody know if these flat top wing nut bolts will work on the round tops? Thanks!
  14. They are not for everyone, but the price reflects that!
  15. Anybody have any interest? Can't tell why I can't get a bite on these bad boys.
