  1. OK thanks for the response. Yes, tried ZClub UK and got the answer to the threaded bolt holes but still not sure about the steel plate ? Just wondered if anyone else had encountered this before seeing as the 1970-73 models are more common in the USA.
  2. OK thanks Zed Head - title changed as recommended.


  4. Hi all, I need reminding please of what the threaded holes are for marked 'A' on my 1970 240Z differential mount . Also, am I correct in saying that the small steel plate marked 'B' goes between the mount and the insulator - it's been some time since I dismantled it but I'm pretty sure it does. Thanks
  5. Does anyone have the Nissan part no.'s for the 4x metal brake/fuel pipe clips and rubbers located along the tunnel and also the one located on the rear cross member ? Are these still available to order ? Thanks.
  6. Tom, I have already done a search and I can't find any answers. The search results go back 12 months - how do I search in the 'archives' before then ?
  7. Are there any reasons why I can't use a 240Z tank in an early 260Z car ? I presume that they have the same shape, the same support straps and outlets etc ? Were there any mods made on the tank for the electric fuel pump set-up on the 260Z ? Thanks.
  8. I'm doing the RB25DET in a 260Z conversion and wondered whether the Skyline brake servo will fit OK. I have an old 260Z servo but not sure how well it operates, also have a good Skyline servo with master cylinder. They are both approx. 7.5" diameter and the linkage lengths are approx. the same. Will need to change the bolt holes positions and widen out the bulkhead aperture but apart from that are there any other issues / reasons why I can't ? Has anyone tried this ? Also, any problems using the 260Z clutch master cylinder with the RB25DET slave unit ? Do I need to use the Skyline cylinder to make the standard clutch operate correctly ? Note - I have also posted the same question on the HybridZ site. <!-- / message -->
  9. I inspected my brake shoes yesterday and the thickness was fine but the surfaces had several cracks. Drums were fine. Is this normal or is it a sign of over-heating ? I have done a couple of track days recently. Anything to worry about - should they be replaced ?
  10. I've been refurbishing my 240Z rear suspension recently and when ticking new parts off the microfiche I came across item no. 55418 N3000 on section no. 92-10. Described as a plate to the diff mounting member. Haven't noticed one of these on any cars before but there are two holes there to bolt it on. Were they always factory fitted ? Anyone got a picture and one to sell ? Thanks, Dave
  11. I'm replacing the fasteners on my rear suspension and notice that there are some slight differences in some of the part no.'s quoted on the microfiche e.g. there are 2 types of M10 washers - 08915-44010 & 08915-54010 and 2 types of M10 nut - 08911-14010 & 08911-24010. Is the difference with respect to the thicknesses ?
  12. Come on guys. Help a poor limey !
  13. I've tried to get another one of the earlier supports (shown on the left in the photo above) in the UK without luck. Could someone in the US get one and post to me in the UK using USPS please ? All costs paid of course. Thanks.
  14. Something else I've learnt. Thanks for the explanation.
  15. EScanlon, Refering to one of your earlier replys. Where/what is 'The front parking lamp housing.........' ? is this part of the headlamp ? Dave
