  1. I will be restoring my 72z back to "near original" condition. I will utilize all original equipment that can be reused and replace what can't with new. I am not overly concerned with originality, especially if it is expensive. I have set a budget of $7,700, and must include some tools, but I will document that as I go. I will be utilizing two primary resources as guides for the process; How to Restore Your Datsun Z-Car by Wick Humble and of course, the Haynes manual. I began last weekend by disconnecting all wiring and hoses from the engine and transmission and, preparing for removal. Two of the rear drive shaft bolts did not want to break loose so I persuaded them with the sawzall. I used my floor jack to support and remove the transmission without much trouble. I used a 2 ton engine hoist to remove the engine with a 10 foot section of chain wrapped around the exhaust header and an M10 bolt inserted into the bracket hole(?) next to the fuel pump. I purchased a 750lb capacity engine stand from Harbor Freight for $46. You can see it in photo 108 attached. I had to purchase the mounting bolts ($9) which were M12x1.5, 75 mm long. Unfortunately they were too long for the stand and bottomed out in the engine block before tightening so I cut a little off. In all, It took me about 10 hours to get the engine and trans out. Today I worked for about 5 hours removing the battery doors, front bumper, grill, hood hinges, windshield cleaner reservoir, coil, and started brake lines. The brake lines have been a pain! I went to the auto parts store and got flared tube wrench for $6. Well worth the money, but I still couldn't get one loose. It's in the proportioning valve so...... Thanks for reading. Feel free to post questions, comments, and suggestions.
