  1. Looking for steel headlight buckets - left & right. 240z
  2. I have a 1974.5 Datsun 260Z. I Have completed the wiring upgrade from Datsun Dave and that was a nice improvement over the stock harness. Next step is replacing the sealed beams with an new option. I searched the forum for past threads but they all seemed to be at least a few years old. What seems to be the best option for an upgrade. I would the best value for my $ that is also reliable. As far as the H4 options I have looked at Hella and Cibie and can't really determine if there is a major difference in the quality of the light. I would appreciate your thoughts about any experience you
  3. Hello all, I have dug through the old threads but cant seem to find anything that addresses testing the combination (dimmer) switch for the headlights on my '78 280z. I have narrowed down the problem to the switch, I think. Bulbs are good, fuses are good, continuity of circuit from the switch to the bulbs is good, even the ground return path (red with black stripe for low beam return path, red with white stripe for high beam return path). The headlight switch shown in in the picture has a white wire with red stripe that feeds constant power from the positive terminal of the battery (through fu
  4. I hate to ask this question since its been asked so many times before, but I tried the other solutions and they did not work. When I bought the car, both the low and high beams worked fine. The day I got it home, the left headlight had gone out and a few days later the right headlight followed. The amp meter needle bounces when I switch on the low beams (parking lights) but no longer does anything between the low and high beam settings. Literally every other light in the car works except for the headlights. I did some searching and other people who had the same problem as me either found a br
  5. Okay so I have a 74 260z that im looking to get as much torque and acceleration as I can. I have the basic 2.6 with dual webers on it with headers and all the emission junk removed. Ive replaced the starter, water pump, radiator fan clutch, upgraded the 4 speed to a 5 speed tranny replaced the brake booster, master cylinder, the clutch master and slave cylinder. What I have left to do is get the alternator rebuilt or replaced, replace the coil, get the headlight harness Dave makes, and replace the gas cap (the one I have doesn't seal and when i take left turns with a full tank of gas i loss my
  6. Well folks, here's my first post. I've spent the last two hours trying to find an answer to my wiring issue and another 2 trying to diagnose it. So when all else fails, get some help from those who have LOTS of experience. 1977 280Z. PO "fixed" the combination switch for the headlights. After my drive home (lights off) I realized that they didn't work. I noticed the Red wire FSM says it runs to the fuse box, I think, was off. I put my finger over it and pressed it back onto the connection and it the lights turned on. A month later I'm finally getting to the issue of soldering it back o
  7. So I feel dumb for asking such a simple question. But how and the hell do you change the headlights on any Datsun 240-280z? its very hard for such a simple thing! The way I tried to do it was: Removing dust/mud guard thing from inside the front fender wheel well. This allows me to get to the 4 Hex head Screws. After taking out all 4 screws I then push the headligh in towards the wheel so I can remove the 3 Bezel srews to the headlight. Then Taking that off and the the headlamp itself. But there must be an easier way. The FSM just outright baffled me. So please help for a new guy like me to the
