    KONI Sports for Classic Z's

    Was not aware Koni outsourced their services. I did in fact buy them new in 1978 and I still have the receipt. I am in no way going to pay someone else $400 plus to check them. I will chalk it up to another lesson learned. Thanks anyway.

    A. Why would not the US Koni rebuild and test facility no have fixtures to test a simple common design Koni? B. Why buy new? These are a lifetime replacement warranty.

  4. I took this around 30- 35 years ago and never saw it again, anywhere.

    KONI Sports for Classic Z's

    Looking at one of my old Koni's and I do mean old, it shows 8641-1031 and underneath that it reads 8703. I am going to call to see if I can send in all 4 to be tested. The adjustments seem to have quit working. My version.

    You just missed this one. Plus the Red interior is more rare. Lots of 240's for sale all the time in the sites you mention and others. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-Datsun-Z-Series-WELL-PRESERVED-RUSTFREE-RUNS-AND-DRIVES-WELL-/372582492765?_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l10137&nordt=true&rt=nc&orig_cvip=true
  7. My last trip to Road Atlanta.
  8. Road America. Driver from Colorado.
  9. I don't know why but one set has 50mm intake and 52mm exhaust. The other set has 50mm intake and 59mm exhaust. In addition they do not look like they include the retainer clips. When the machinist did mine he knew from previous Datsun work that I need to get him new clips as well. I got a brass set off eBay that included the retainer clips. He installed them with no problems.
  10. Purchased and received these when they were on sale recently. Will have to wait until the car comes out of winter hibernation to report back. https://www.apexengineered.com/store/p22/Crossmember_Upper_Steering_Clamps.html

    Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    This is an older photo of my kit that came with the same fuel pipe. The copper tubing is grafted to the end of this pipe and goes to the fuel return line. In my case the triple pipe is flipped to be fed from the rear as my tank line is routed to the firewall instead of the stock front location.

    Interesting read

    Nice duct tape job on the front spoiler. 😀

    Engine lift for front cross member removal

    Interesting this came up now. I also found a much nicer cross member that is being powder coated. I want to swap it out without removing the engine. Not sure of the method yet. I do have access to a engine lift to use if needed. But I would like to leave the hood as is if possible. Its way too cold now in the garage so the plan is being a spring project. Looking into ideas now. I have lots of unistrut already.

    Yup. What a joke. That race program worked out real well for Toyota didn't it.
