24 downloadsA number of people refer to this document for repairing the 280Z clock. The thread where it was originally posted is no longer available so I'm posting it here in the tech articles. This is where is should be. No credit on my part. That goes to E. Bettio for writing the article and Monkey Man for posting itFree
Mint condition 1979 280ZX dash, along with door panels that are in great shape. Included are the lower dash panels with courtesy lights, steering wheel, spare tire cover, center air conditioner vents, radio mount, fuse box cover. Zero cracks. A rare find, with analog Quartz clock, chrome trimmed door pockets, cigar lighter, stereo surround adjuster. Wiring harness is intact, and complete. Both defroster ducts included, pictures only show the one, but both are included. Door panels are in great shape, solid with no tears. Spare tire cover has a few blemishes, but is very acceptable. Discoloration in pictures of dash and A/C vents is cleaner that was drying. Right side lower dash panel with courtesy light was drilled for alarm system, but is not seen when mounted since its on the bottom of the panel, vacuum selector switch on left panel is also intact. Give me a reasonable offer for all.
When I purchase my 240 about a year ago, the previous owner gave me a big box of extra parts. Included in the box was 2 clocks, 3 Amp/Fuel, and 3 Temp/Oil. It looks like there are a few from a 72' 240z and some from a 74' 260z. See picture. I was looking for some assistance on what to do with them. The previous owner didn't think that they were working, but based on his overall lack of knowledge for the car, I think i'd like to test that theory for myself. Can someone give me some insight on how to go about testing these? Secondly, what does demand look like for selling these? I see some on ebay ranging from $30 to $100, depending on the gauge and condition. If they aren't working, is it worth it to spend the money to fix them, then sell them? I'm not overly concerned with getting top dollar for them, they will likely just go back into the box if they aren't worth the time. Summary 1. How do I test them? 2. Are any of them worth anything? 3. If they aren't working, is it worth it to have them repaired/refurbished? Thank you!
