  1. It's Running! After reading the last posts I disconnected the line to the fuel filter and blew some compressed air in to it going back to the gas tank. Heard the bubbling in the gas tank. Next I filled both float chambers (I had to order a squeeze bottle that holds fuel and the tube went over the nipple perfectly. The bottle is used for filling RC cars). While I was at it, I filled the fuel filter since I had the line disconnected, figured it wouldn't hurt to help with the priming. I used my wd-40 plastic tube and pushed the floats. They bobbed up and down with no problems. Reconnected the fuel lines hoses and the car started up perfect and runs perfect!!! So I don't know if the floats were stuck and were freed up when adding the gas thru the nipple or if there was just an air pocket in the lines. Thanks everyone for the help and Cliff, great photo and descriptions. You made it real simple for me to follow.
  2. I will try blowing air towards the gas tank and see what I hear. The engine compartment is like new, everything replaced or rebuild 2 yrs ago. Has about 300 miles on is since. I haven't done anything hose/fuel related from the engine compartment back to tank. "I've read on here where cars that sat needed fuel poured into the overflow bungs to get the floats moving up and down maybe unsticking the fuel valves? If you get the float chambers full of fuel at least it would run for a little longer than ether. " Where are the overflow bungs /float chambers? .
  3. So I have checked the manual fuel pump and it works great. I have checked everything from the fuel filter forward and everything is good. Nothing blocked and everything seems in good working order. Just seems like no gas getting to the fuel filter. The car has sat for 6 mths and prior to that ran and started perfect, even when sitting for awhile. Where do I go from here? Is there a filter at the tank or in the tank? Do I need to drop it for the next step? Thanks.
  4. I took the pump out to manually test it. I needed some fuel line so I stopped in at O'Reillys and while I was there I borrowed a test gauge. I just got back and while looking the pump over I tried moving the pump handle a few times. Should it sound like a wounded Seal? It has been sitting about 6 mths.
  5. My 73 Z won't start. Turns over and starts with a few squirts of starter fluid then dies unless I keep squirting it in. Assumption is that it's not getting gas. I changed out the fuel filter and no difference. Plenty of gas in the tank. The engine was rebuilt a few years ago and the carbs all redone by Z therapy. Ran beautiful for the last few years (only about 500 miles put on it.) It would start right up. Since the rest is all original components I assume I have just the mechanical fuel pump in the front passenger side of the engine which I believe a new one was put on after the engine rebuild. How can I test it to see if that's the problem? If I take the line off that comes from the filter should I feel suction when cranking the motor? What else could stop the fuel if the filter and fuel pump are ok? Is there a pick up tube in the tank that might be clogged? Is there a step by step procedure to test and eliminate things? Thanks, Greg

    Dash cracks

    Sorry to hijack the thread here, but could you guys elaborate on the Just Dash's quality? I was about to go that route because the 2 previous dash's that I had done for my GTO's were terrific. One was done 10 yrs ago and the other 2 yrs ago. Both still outstanding. Have they changed how they do the work or is it the shape of the Z dash that gives them trouble? Anyone else have a Z dash done there?
  7. Nice job! How much of difference did the sound deadening make? I have been thinking of doing it but I want more than just a slight improvement. Greg
  8. I have a 240z with the 918 code paint and 1969 GTO Judge with Carousel Red paint, which is the same as the Chevrolet Hugger Orange. There is not that much of a difference and I get asked at shows why I painted them the same color. I see no reason to change from the original 918 unless you wanted something completely different.
  9. Just found this thread. Did you end up with a definite number of people willing to buy?
  10. I received my four back issue plus the current. Very happy, nice quality magazine. Greg

    Seat belt upgrade

    The Wesco belts have been very good. They do ride up a bit on the neck area. i picked up an adjuster from Auto Zone. It works perfect, just clips on the belt an stays there. i can slide it a few inches either way for comfort.
  12. Thanks for all the info! Anyone have a part number so I can try to order it through Nissan?
  13. Does anyone make the door pull plastic chrome cover piece? The part that covers the ends of the door pull strap. Mine just fell apart.
