  1. Two BaT 260Z auctions ending in less than 90 minutes, one with no reserve. Both look to be pretty nice and they are still well under 20K. The silver one sold for 46K on BaT in 2017. Interesting that neither one had many comments or communication from the sellers. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1974-datsun-260z-50/ https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1974-datsun-260z-51/
  2. This is very cool technology, here is a link to a post from @Mike a couple of years ago when it was first announced. The video shows the process in a little more detail.
  3. Did you even bother to click on the link that @siteunseen politely posted? When you do a google search that includes classiczcars.com, the result are primarily focused on this forum. A lot of times you get more focused results than by using the search button on this site. In Site's example you get the following, and if you click more results, you get 3 plus pages of relevant results from our forum. I will also mention that if you search from our forum with quotation marks, ie: "engine removal". you will get results for the phrase in quotations. Which also gives a good list o
  4. For those with early cars who may find this discussion later, here is a close up picture of the connection from the actuator on the key cylinder to the rod on the door lock mechanism. It shows the split plastic bushing that is used, instead of a clip type connection as shown above.
  5. They might be different for "series 2". My car has the two key system with the short single sided key for the doors.
  6. Just checked the lock assemblies on the doors from my 1971 parts car (12/70), they don't have the plastic clip on the the lock cylinder actuator either.
  7. Is that the correct key cylinder? Mine doesn't have the white plastic clip that is in your picture.
  8. Also here is an image from the body section of the FSM.
  9. Here are a couple of pictures from my 7/70 that I took so that I could re-assemble in the future. Don't like relying on my memory, Hope this helps.
  10. The FSM is a good source of info for this question. Check the general information section.
  11. I was wondering the same. The comments indicates that the seller was not very cooperative. Maybe not the right word, but he definitely was not making much of an effort.
  12. Early Canadian market 240Z's had no vapor tank either, until about 9/70 I believe. They were known as non-emissions models, HLS30UN. Here are a couple of pictures of my 7/70 Canadian car showing the original vent hose routing without a vapor tank. The hose tee's off the tank vent hose going straight up and then loops back down going through a hole in the floor behind the plastic trim panel.
  13. Here's a picture of the original vapor barrier on my 7/70 240Z, before I disassembled the door. It was held on with adhesive all the way around the perimeter. I assume 280's were similar.
