  1. Tre, I sent you a private message re the hatch lid.
  2. Comrades280z, I sent you a PM re the gas tank. Duane.
  3. Tre and Comrades280z, Trunk hatch lid and gas tank are available. I did not find time today to check them out or take pictures for condition. I may also be tied up tomorrow, but I will get additional info on condition when I can. Thanks, Duane.
  4. Haha!! But I know the feeling - parts never nearby, right.
  5. View Advert 1977 280z Donor Car Leftovers I have the leftovers from a 1977 280z that we used as a donor for refurbishing my dad's Z. Finished the project and I need to get rid of the parts car. This car has rusted through floors and rockers and lower fenders plus other major rust. I did not keep track of everything we used (main thing we bought it for was the running engine). Car was running/driving when purchased 5 years ago. In case it matters, car was built 12/76. NOT available (partial list): - engine - turn/headlight stalk switches - pa

    I have the leftovers from a 1977 280z that we used as a donor for refurbishing my dad's Z. Finished the project and I need to get rid of the parts car. This car has rusted through floors and rockers and lower fenders plus other major rust. I did not keep track of everything we used (main thing we bought it for was the running engine). Car was running/driving when purchased 5 years ago. In case it matters, car was built 12/76. NOT available (partial list): - engine - turn/headlight stalk switches - passenger quarter window trim - rear suspension/hubs/differential (may be available later) I can ship small parts. If any interest in hood, roof, transmission (4-speed), gas tank (somewhat rough), or other large parts, pickup or nearby delivery can work (or discuss shipping?). I'm in central Maryland. Please feel free to ask about any bits you might need. Not trying to make money, so will be open to offers. Would like some of it to get used before scrapping.

  7. I have a 1977 280z parts car that was a donor for another project. I still have the pedals. Are you still needing this? Duane.
  8. Dutchzcarguy, I hear you! I did tear the carbs down, clean everything, and did a rebuild kit on both carbs. The throttle shafts seemed fairly tight. We are just trying to get the best out of these flat tops for now. Might eventually go to fuel injection, but not at this time. Thanks, Duane.
  9. SteveJ, Thanks for the reply. Yes, have the FSM. FSM procedure for adjusting idle mixture screw requires measuring CO. We do not have access to a CO meter to do it that way. Fuel injection does sound nice, but for now we are sticking with the flat top carbs. Duane.
  10. Have been lurking, but have a question now. for which my searches have been unsuccessful. I have been working on refurbishing my father's 1974.5 260z. He is sticking with the flat top carbs for now. Car had been running very rich, but we just removed carbs and reset float/fuel level, which was was too high. However, earlier on we had changed the idle mixture and idle speed screw settings to try to improve the idle. I thought I had seen recommendations on starting point and procedure for adjusting idle mixture without a CO meter, which we do not have. Cannot find that method now. Does anyone kn
