    260z - Part Identification

    Was your car an automatic?
  2. My '75 280z engine looks like leaking oil from rear crankshaft oil seal. I'm about to order the oil seal part, http://www.carpartsmanual.com/datsuns30/Datsun-Z-Index/Engine-280Z/Cylinder-Block Parts number is 12279-R4601 SEAL-OIL CRANKSHAFT It cost $40-$50 I saw someone is using 240SX part# 12279-5L310 It only cost around $10. http://www.pitroad-ts.com/tuning-page/tsuchiya240.htm I wonder those are interchangeable?
  3. Is there anywhere I can find information on how to find out correct length of the collar?
  4. Thanks for the feedback. I've been working with brake issue. Just realize I used wrong bleeder size cause the problem. I'm afraid of the clutch though away bearing size is the wrong size since I replace my tranny to FS5W71C(240SX tranny). Does anyone swap tranny to 71C and replace the though away bearing?
  5. Thanks Leon for quick reply. I'm still trying to figure out this and brake line. So, when engine start running, will this clutch folk push in the clutch slave cylinder? When I step on the clutch pedal I don't feel any traction at all.
  6. Hi, I'm having issue on clutch. Even though replace to new Clutch slave cylinder, the cylinder pin push out clutch folk all the way to the end. Do I need to replace clutch pressure plate?

    Turn Signal Issues

    I don't know what trouble shooting you have done so far. Did you check/replace blinker relay? Did you check turn signal switch itself(combo switch)? Isn't it worn out connection point?

    I put 280zx booster for 15/16 master cylinder onto my 280z.
  12. It gets softer. I wiped out Vaseline and put it on to the center console. The clips are so hard to put them on. Especially, leather is thicker than fake leather. But, the leather boots cover is too long, Shift nob will be hidden... I removed it and compare with the original one. It is way too long. I cut it sort. Now it looks better.
  13. I purchase cheap leather outer shift cover from ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Shift-Boot-Real-Leather-For-Datsun-240z-260z-280z-Manual-Black/181378028504?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 I was not soft, not flexible. I learned that putting Vaseline and leave it night will soften leather. So, I put it all over it and leave it night.
  14. I decided to use 240SX rubber parts. trace the frame and cut it out. It has two layers. Since mine is short shifter, it does not touch the frame at all. But it has some gap. I end up adding original shift boot on the top of 240sx boot cover.
