  1. Interesting Kats. I got fairly familiar with kanji when I was looking at period magazine articles for the csp website. I had to look at the kanji (sometimes with a magnifying glass as the print/paper quality in the 1960's wasn't great), work out how many "sub kanji" are in it, as it could be a combination of "sub kanji" all with a differening number of strokes per "sub kanji" . There was a great website (not there now) which listed these "sub kanji" by the number of strokes, and you ticked what you worked out and hopefully end up with the correct kanji in the magazine. E.G (if my memory serves me well) 可 is made of two "sub kanji" the square and the "J" with the top line. Both are written in a particular stroke order. Sorry, there probably is a better/correct way of saying this than "sub kanji", but I was looking on my own, ploughing through 70-80 thousand kanji... before running through Google translate in a curtailed way sometimes. Alan kindly gave me a sticker of this which is proudly on my RS30. About fuel if I remember.. The left image faces out, whilst the right faces into the car as its applied to the glass.
  2. These pair of dashes are on Ebay just now. Most S30 owners won't see this unless there car is apart, but under the steering column section, markings from the factory (carrying on the glovebox and radio markings in the thread) The top one looks like ENG for England, the other...?
  3. Great document. Alan, in my CSP311 development uncovering, Nissan used A###X for their project codes (though the CSP didn't get one), e.g. A250X was an engine development of a SP311 engine and A550X was the still-born Nissan 2000GT. Was this carried on into the early, what would become the S30, which we see from the document as 270KK and changed (what I am asking is did it have an A###X first), or if I remember the CSP and S30 (for example) was designed under a different design studio's within Nissan? Thus, did each design studio/team have it's own code? Cheers Ian
  4. After a long time, mainly due to loads of projects going on all at once (at different stages) my option SP/SP311 (74340-25500) footrest replica is finished. I am pleased. The original footrest option for the 311 would have been a nice addition to the S30 range if Nissan decreed it back in 1969 for production instead of the black painted one.
  5. This was recently talked about on the 311s forum; https://www.311s.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=306630&hilit=plasti+dip#p306630
  6. I take it the black and white image is from Nissan's workshop manual, so it could one of the specialized tools that is listed within the manual. There are specialized tools for L series engine and for the S30 body listed in Nissan's workshop manual, but virtually no-one uses these, let alone seen them. That's what I mean by sepcific.
  7. While spending too much time on Yahoo Japan auctions, I spot this; https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/p1036395780 I presume a spanner so you get the right torque setting. Pictures from link.
  8. Hi Kats, It looks like your wait is over; https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/o1035873205 Pictures from link for long term reference In the blue as per Alan's comment of "Factory replacement spare parts came in (manufacturer) Tsuchiya's factory blue colour"
  9. View Advert S30 JDM/Option footrest OEM JDM/option footrest, NOT one of those reproductions that for me, don't look right. Used, but restored by me. It was rusty, and flaky paint, and the feet were seized. Stripped and filed/sanded and powder coated in gloss black. The rubber/plastic foot grip is a reproduction, made by me, there is info on this in the group buy thread. It’s not perfect, there are rust depressions in the feet from sitting in wet footwells over the years, but it now has a great finish considering its age. Feet un-seized, but a little stiff, need some movement (best done mounted to car floor). Original fixing coach head bolts left in place as they were fine and original rivets. If you are unfamiliar with the footrest, info can be found here; https://www.classiczcars.com/forums/topic/63606-jdmoption-footrest-differences/ Price a little higher than I would like to sell for (like previous ones), as these footrests are getting a little more expensive to get hold of from Japan by the time brought, bidding fees and shipping. Probably the last one I will buy from Japan and restore. $250 inclusive of shipping from UK worldwide, tracked. Drop me a line if interested or want to know more....

  11. Hello Kats, For me, the mid to late 1960's and very early 1970's was the peak of car design in Japan, with great looking models and performance (even those with less performance still looked great). The S30 family is no exception, but I hark more to the rarer/less produced models within the range. Ahh, the late model RS30Q....! Silvia, it's going fine, though slowly. Your statement (I quoted above) can easily fit into it with finding spares for a production run only about 100 more than the Z432. I had been looking for a pair of seats for about 12 years, and finally I brought with a small fortune considering they were for restoration only.
  12. Thanks Alan, very helpful as usual. They are just a lovely design. I will carry on drooling with a little more info....
  13. While drooling at S20 engine pictures during those quiet time "having a look on the web", I notice the S20 air boxes on the Z432 and KGC10 (?) are different. The Z432 (PS30) has the air filter housing in front of the radiator, a longer pipe connecting to the car box (two rubber joiners), and the air enters the carb box at the front. (Z432 image from Kat's thread, page 26) The Skyline fitted with the S20, has the air filter housing behind the radiator and connect directly to the carb box, no pipe connector (1 rubber joiner). The air enters the carb box by a pipe coming in on the side. I presume the obvious difference is red for Z432 and Skyline is blue? I ask as I have an image of a red carb box, but the air pipe into this comes in from the side... was there a change during production of the Z432? The way the air filter housing fits to the engine bay differs, my question is does the fixing point exist on other models (s30, Z-L for example), as some models have places to attach something that was not specifc to that model? On the red airbox pictured not on the car, there is an indent at the back of the carb airbox, I take it this is space for the clutch master? Any other documentation of differences (or correcting me-learning here) would I think make a great thread...
  14. FYI- All the roadster North American vendors sell reproduction gaskets for the U20 Solex insulator, as that is the only source now (though I did have some NOS ones a while ago and sold to a European roadster specialist). And repros are widely available from Japan also.
