    7/71 240Z - Need a lot of work, but has good bones. I've have a few British roadsters and this Z, by far, is much better.
    11/71 240Z - Repainted back to original silver. It's gonna be nice when she's done.

  1. I'm not sure about the license plate delete option...
  2. Thanks to all for your response. I'm clear now...much appreciated.
  3. @siteunseen did the little bracket go on the “L” shaped side? That’s where I took mine from when I removed it.
  4. A friend helped me out. I looks like there’s two pieces. The other piece is shot ant straight. It forms a “U” shape. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
  5. Is there only one “L” shaped flange support bracket on the oil pan, or are there supposed to be two? I checked FSM, but couldn’t find it.
  6. I'm not sure, but I don't recall seeing any rubber insulators when I took them off my 240Z, nor do I see them in the FSM
  7. I haven't fitted them yet. It'll be a couple weeks. I didn't buy the brackets as I'll use my originals.
  8. I ordered my 240Z bumpers from Harrington Group Ltd about three weeks ago. They arrived today and look great. I think they were a bit more expensive than eBay, but I like having someone that would actually respond to my emails. They were well packed. I ordered mine with rubber; since my car is silver I wanted the contrast. I haven't fitted them yet, so I'll send the update when I do. Oh yah, I forgot to mention they do come with new mounting bolts.
  9. Thanks to all for your help...I'm in a much better position now. The FSM is good, but you folks are great. I try to contribute when I can.
  10. I read the FSM, but couldn’t figure it out. You pick really helped. last question @ToolBoy ... will the booster hold vacuum without plate and seal installed with pushrod? thank you...thank you
  11. @ToolBoy I’m hoping you can remember the assembly process. I removed my booster and something doesn’t seem right with mine. Regarding the parts you identified as D and N, those are the only two parts that come out of the assembly. Does N slide onto D and then fit into C? If so, does N get affixed to C with something like RTV? Any help is appreciated. i also started a thread with pics. The thread is titled “Brake Booster Questions - Please Look” in the subject.
  12. Is anyone using the UNI Air Filters on their 240Z. If so, do they work? Are they easy to clean? Do they look good?
  13. I removed my brake booster during the paint process. Looking at my brake booster I have a few questions: Is the actuator on the master cylinder side supposed to just pull out, to include the rubber grommet? (See Photo) Is there a gasket needed on both (or one) side of the spacer? (See Photo) I see a silhouette of a gasket, but there wasn't one on it. When I tried to check the booster with a vacuum pump, I could get it to five or ten pounds of pressure, but it would lose vacuum pretty quickly. Do I need to seal up one side or both before adding vacuum? Lastly, are there good alternatives (that you've used) other than the $170 booster sold on Z sites?
  14. This ended up being the trim I used for the fender liner seal. It fit snug on the pinch weld and the seal fit perfectly. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B085NHLTS4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 uxcell Trim Seal with Top Bulb, EPDM Rubber Seal Channel Edge Protector Sheet, Fits 0.5-3mm Edge 3Meters/9.84Ft, 1.22inch Height
