    SK Sports Kit (3 x 44PHH) for sale

    Still for sale. PM me if interested.
  3. Hi All, Finally after eons of thinking I'll save these puppies for that L28 I am going to build, the reality is I never will so out this kit goes. For sale SK SPORTS kit consisting of 3 x Mukuni 44PHH, manifold (no linkages), bakelite spacers, no ram tubes, full rebuild gasket kit including pump diaphrams, copy of the Mukuni 40 and 44 manual. The decal that goes on the top of the manifold is missing. Manifold has been media blasted. I have bathed this in a hot enzyme bath, scrubbed them up and they come up great but would really need a full strip, media blast the bodies and replate the brackets and springs. These came off a L28 which I never heard running so I can assume that all the bits are there. I've had the jets out and can confirm that they are all there. No reason to think that they won't work. But as these are so old and I never saw them running, I can't be 100% sure that they are in working condition. Just wanted to be very clear on that point. I have 2 x 40PHH which also get sold with this kit. Happy to not include them but may have parts or spares you may need. If you are interested, PM me. You may never see another SK come up for sale and imagine the "what's that" and "where did you find that" comment at your local car show event. Image below is from a google search I did (thanks google) and the ones I have for sale. These will be going on ebay in a couple of weeks if no one is interested here. I'm in New Zealand and will be in the US later this year so could bring them with me if possible.

    71 hatch lock question

    The one without the key in it is a door lock, not a hatch lock.

    WTB: RHD Fairlady 240Z

    Here’s a left field idea. 240z in RHD command very high prices now. You can still find good better condition 240z in the US. Why not buy the RHD bits to need to convert a LHD? You’ll need loom, dash, peddle box, rack and get a good body guy to fabricate a firewall. Heater box too, transpose the heater chimney. ive got a 73 half cut but firewall is Swiss cheese. All the bits you need. Interested?

    Non-Defrost rear glass..

    Hey Gav, Sorry to drag an older thread back up but I’m cleaning up the rear hatch glass today and thought I’d some more info. I shattered the passenger glass when I was cleaning the dumb dumb off the door (amateur mistake and pissed me off no end). That glass was clear as was the other panes. Remember that #352 was first registered in Australia also. No connectors in the roof for a demister.

    Thinking about tackling body and paint, advice?

    Make sure you use a protective coat if you get down to bare metal such as KEYFOS as the steel will quickly get covered in surface rust.

    Yup, old photos. I’ll chuck up new ones now and then. I will miss my deadline but it will be close.

    Thinking about tackling body and paint, advice?

    As wisely said before, multiply your budget by 5. Take all the badges off carefully, all glass out, doors off (as you will need to access the sills properly or it will look shite). Guards off, sugar scopes, hood, cowl, gas flap, rear facia out and tail light clusters. Tool hatches, rear deck also. Here’s the killer. Are you prepared for all the rust repairs you will find? Your doglegs could need replacing, sills, rear arches, what about under the body issues? Once you’ve done all that, the little things will grate at you. Like the cost of new door scuff plates, you may want to put on new badges. You’ll spend countless hours polishing stainless, maybe new door handles etc. It will soon turn into a major, if you let it. Not trying to put you off, just letting you know what happens. Good luck.

    Series I cars

    Did anyone mention the "NISSAN 2400 OHC" rocker cover and hand throttle yet? I know this is hard to believe but HS30-00352 isn't far from finally being driven again. SHOCK HORROR!!!
  19. I have seen many thread about vapour lock but nothing about what it actually is or how it is caused. Is it only found on Smog equipt or all 70-78Z's Can someone who knows about this in detail enlighten us all?

    Replacement tar mat

    My panel guy told me where to buy it and it was a local shop here in New Zealand so sorry not much help I'm sorry. I too had new floors must in. Etch primed then tar, then primed twice to stop the tar bleeding. Two top coats to finish it off. No problem with the rust coming back for some time I'd say. More important attention under the car is the key here. It too was etched then two coats of a stone chip guard type paint, then top coats. As my car will live in a garage, hopefully helping in keeping the rust monster at bay for a while. Pay special attention to ensuring that your door seals are good and also that the cowl drain hose that exits into the front guard void is in good shape. They can perish and the result is water soaking the firewall insulator and tracking down onto the floor pans.

    1969 Fairlady Z for Sale

    Not very many I'd guess as the S30 was a Japanese Domestic market only model with the L6 2000 engine. Doubt many made it to mainland Europe at all as all S30's were RHD. I recall seeing one in NZ a few years ago and probably imported here in the 80's when our importing laws changed. I have not seen one for ages, even HS30's are very uncommon and now very sort after. A unmolested HS30 is somewhere between NZ$25,000 and NZ$40,000 but they do come up.

    Replacement tar mat

    Noooo, don't turn your your classic zed into a "TV resto" by putting in dynamat or something similar. Just put in the original tar paper like it was intended. Looks much better and very rewarding once you've slaved hours to put it in (burnt hands / sore back / am I selling it too you?). It took me two days to put all mine in properly and I put in a great deal more than stock just to keep it as quiet as possible. Over the tunnel, new modern sound absorbing matting over the tar and the original restored vinyl over that. Floors have tar/double matting and carpet. Hatch area is tar/matting and carpet. Should be quiet enough but nothing will stop the music the triples will make. Planning on making some sort of heat deflector where the exhaust goes from the engine bay into the tunnel to help deflect the heat somewhat as it gets warmish on the passengers side (RHD remember). But doubt it will do much bit it may help.
