Have water in oil, cyls 2-6 fine, nr 1 plug wet, water in oil. Suspect it is head gasket but not sure. Do not have place to do head gasket nor tools, etc, so will have to pay to have done by local NAPA or such (use their head gasket set?) Have had work on truck done there, great place, mechanic i former Datsun shop. Est is 525 plus tax, is that reasonable? IF worse case is head cracked, what is real cost for replacement head. Need to go cheap as 73 on SS, so not a lot of spare cash. Thoughts? Have had 78Z for 25 years, used to do most work self, but back no longer accepts such things. Ole machine and I still run pretty good despite age.
Alright, I am so close to being finished with "REFRESHING" my 72 240Z. I pulled the bumpers and media blasted the interior portions and then POR 15 the insides to make sure I never have rust problems. I was ready to put on the new exterior rubber trim pieces and noticed that the rubber pieces (that go between the outer bumper brackets and the fender - keeps bracket from scratching paint) were shot and had one missing. I have access to Nissan microfilm and found something that looked like a "shim" - called Nissan and they said "NLA". Any idea if these "shims" (if I have identified the right part) are available as "aftermarket" or have some of you crafty guys used "other things" to accomplish the purpose as original pieces were intended. Thanks for the help. David Jacks - Fort Worth, Texas P.S. I have the end cap "fillers" on the rear bumpers - so I am not seeking these particular rubber parts. Thanks, David
