  1. The original post is from 2014 so I think he gave up. Lol
  2. @nix240z Your early ones look good, and the price is good as well compared to ebay sellers.
  3. Here are some currently on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-Heater-AC-Control-Knob-Set-260Z-280Z-OEM-NEW/312432105152?hash=item48be6796c0:g:rusAAOxy5jxSdrR Same seller also has a set of early ones, but they are missing the screws, like you said they are pricey.
  4. The later knobs from 260Z/280Z do fit, they are simply push on and don't have a retaining screw like the early ones. I have a heater control panel from a 12/70 parts car and it has them on the control levers, they seem adequate. The part number is 27148-Y0100 and they were used from 08/73 forward. HTH Mike
  5. Based on these sales I predict a flood of Z's at future BJ auctions.
  6. What model of S30 do you have, it seems that the torque for this fastener is lower for 70 thru 73 240z's and changed to 33-44 ft-lb with the 260z. FYI this torque spec is listed in all of the FSM's, Here are a couple of images from the 1970 FSM. Did the fastener size change starting with 260z"s? The 240z FSM's indicate 23.1 to 31.1 ft-lb.
  7. You're very welcome. Glad I could help.
  8. I know this question is answered, but I just wanted to mention that it would not be necessary to remove the outer center metal finisher to run the wiring harness and install the grommet. With the license plate light removed it should be no problem. Cheers Mike
  9. If it's the rectangular headlights you like, here's one on Craigslist with a similar body kit. https://vancouver.craigslist.org/rds/cto/d/west-kelowna-1971-datsun-240z/6778747607.html
  10. On the imgur pics there are images of some service records and I saw this, it makes me question the mileage:
  11. On the graymotors closed auction he listed a copy/paste link for more pictures, for those who are interested here it is: https://imgur.com/a/LC1Abkd
  12. This car seems to have been sold a month ago on Ebay for US$28,850 and a reported mileage of 51,310 by a different seller: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Datsun-Z-Series-/202530708936?nordt=true&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.m43663.l10137 Seems strange that it has a 90 psi oil pressure a gauge, it would have originally had a 140 psi gauge, unless it was changed. That seems unlikely for a car with 50K miles.
  13. The 21595-M0206 switch was used on other models as well, found these specs on the Datsun 1200 site: http://datsun1200.com/modules/mediawiki/index.php?title=Electric_Fan The stock Datsun B310 fan Thermo switch specifications: * Part Number 21595-M0206 * Nominal ON: 85-90C * Spec ON: 83-87° C (181-189 F) * Spec OFF: 78-81° C (172-178 F) * used with 82C thermostat (88C optional)
  14. Here is a link to the page on carpartsmanual.com http://www.carpartsmanual.com/datsun/Z-1969-1978/engine-280z/motor-fan
  15. Here is the optional fan from my parts CD.
