  1. looks like round ports after all It's been a while since I've seen an L24 head without manifolds, is my E88 L24 head round exhaust ports as well?
  2. Howdy guys, I have a 73 240z with its original L24 in it (107k miles). It has an E88 head. I also have a spare complete L28, N42 block with N47 head. I need an exhaust manifold for my car with the L24. The L28 has a new header on it. Curious if the header from the L28 will fit on the L24, and if so which exhaust manifold gasket I should buy? Thanks in advance
  3. If you wouldn't mind taking a photo if it were convenient that would be much appreciated. Thank you!
  4. Is there a spacer at that bottom right mounting point, or does it line up flush with the bracket?
  5. Anyone else familiar with any variance in vapor expansion tanks?
  6. Also is there anywhere reasonably priced for these fuel lines and grommets? Most of the lines I can get universal but the grommets I'll need to buy
  7. Looking to order some coilovers for my 73 240z. I spoke with Jay at Ground Control, told him this would be a fair weather car with a couple track days per year (Watkins Glen and Toronto Motorsport Park are nearby). I have flares and plan to run 245's in back, perhaps more if they'll fit. At first he said he would recommend softer spring rates and Koni Sports and would e-mail me a spec sheet. I didn't receive anything, called a few times throughout the week and received this after calling again 4 days later. It looks like he's suggesting 340f/380r. Do those spring rates seem high? I don't have a cage, though I would like to add a roll bar at some point. Also aren't those spring rates much higher than the Tokicos can handle? After reading it seems they can only tolerate spring rates of 250 or so, no?
  8. Howdy. I recently bought my 5th Z, (consecutive not concurrent sadly) a 73 240. It had a fuel leak from the vapor expansion tank to the fuel tank, and it looks like all the lines are ready for replacement. However, the tank doesn't seem to fit. It was just hanging there with 2 random screws, and the bottom right mounting point is ~2" away from the bracket on the 1/4 panel. Is there supposed to be a spacer there? The expansion tank looks like metal, I believe the early model was plastic, does that rule out the possibility of it being the wrong tank? Also, where is that top left hose supposed to route to, it's just blocked off on my car? Thanks in advance for any info.
  9. Jack stand points on 240Z

    I have a 2 post lift with offset arms, haven't found a good spot for the rear arms. Any suggestions? I saw the seatbelt cup mentioned but didn't see where exactly would be optimal
  10. My dad has this 72 240z for about 30 years, and he got it from a friend so we know the odometer hasn't rolled over. It's in primer now, ran when parked, surface rust all over but there doesn't appear to be rot. Uncracked dash, interior is complete, everything is complete but there's bondo on the rear quarter panel and roof, etc. Many of you may recognize him as he's been to a few Z conventions, more than I anyway. Anyway he restored his '71 35 years ago and it's still in beautiful shape, though it looks like this car may never reach restoration as we're all so busy these days. Granted value is geographical, what should he ask for this Z being that it's located in Buffalo, NY? Here's a link to the full photo album with underbody pics: http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Coldaccord/library/1972%20Datsun%20240z%20Lime%20Green Thanks in advance for any input
  11. Got a new 240z today, and an introduction

    Finally got started on this project. I'd pulled the a/c and cracked dash when I first got the car. Recently I've bought all the coolant hoses (and hard line behind the head) and put them in, freed up the heater valve, did the GM HEI setup since the distributor has an electronic pickup. Next up is fuel: the L28 already has the block off plate where the mechanical fuel pump was on the motor. Now I need to find an electric fuel pump. I saw somewhere that 72+ may already have wires at the tank, and there's also a factory bracket for a pump that can be purchased? Is there a method of searching I'm missing? I'm surprised this site doesn't have more *pinned posts*. When looking for a writeup for a task, it's often difficult to find and buried in searching. Forums I've used in the past will usually have a collection of write-ups for each category. Is any such collection available here? *edit: I almost forgot- turns out the car is a 73. I haven't put it on the lift to see if it has the factory electric fuel pump in back, but if so I believe that pump only gets power at startup and it will need to run when the key is on. Looking for advice on what pump to run since there's no mechanical pump, how to wire it, and what fpr to use. Thanks in advance for any info
  12. N47/N42 into 73 240z: Can I use Crane xr700 ignition module?

    Though it does recommend a distributor from a 76-78, my pickup has red and blue wires and in the writeup theirs has red and green wires. Is my distributor still ok to use?
  13. N47/N42 into 73 240z: Can I use Crane xr700 ignition module?

    Just the advice I was looking for, thank you. Found a write-up here: http://www.zhome.com/ZCMnL/tech/gmhei.html
  14. I have a 72 240z I'm putting an L28 into (n47 head n42 block). It didn't come with an ignition control module, but it did come with a new in box Crane xr700 ignition module. The L28 distributor already has an electronic pickup. My question is can I use the Crane system with it, and if so what wires from the distributor to the ignition box are to be spliced together? You can see in the photo the red/blue wires from the distributor and the 3 grey/white/black wires going to the module I called Motorsport and they said the ignition module was compatible with the 280z/zx distributor using the 280zx pickup, but didn't know the wiring specifically Thanks in advance for any info
