  1. i can not find a relay on any print that has three blue wires. then there is this little thing with two green wires dont have it on any print either. there is another that is under the radio looks like factory install. the relay in engine bay might be auto trans saftey switch related. none of my wire colors are matching any year print. it is a 1973 240z.
  2. I dont understand how would they come on if not grounded? but then there is still a lot i dont see since i have no wiring diagram.
  3. yes all four points on the switch are hot when high beam is on so i would think that is your answer but i dont have head lamps hooked up yet.
  4. i do know there is a separate fuse for each side and i can check on the both at the same time for you i have that switch opened in my shop. thats the only way i can check now since i have never found a 240z diagram that is any where near correct.
  5. i have a 240z the door plate 10/72 manufacture date the title should be 1973 and it is. the problem i am having is the color of wires i have are not all the same as 1973 US 240z with standard trans. example on my temp and oil pressure gauge there is a yellow with black stripe. no print i have found yet for any year 240z matches all the wires in this car. anybody no of one that has yellow with black stripe to the oil and temp gauge?
  6. that is something I would do for sure if it was not for the 2004 gto heads have a very small hole size. other year ls1 engine have a larger diameter hole. there is just too big of a difference. thanks for the idea anyways.
  7. i think i have the oil pressure figured out now i am doing temp. For some reason my wife wants the original gauges she has everything inside the car original and new. I am working with a ls1 from a 2004 GTO it has two locations for temp senders and i will be trying to keep the sender that talks to the GTO computer and add one that matches ohms with the unit from the old 240z engine. i dont know how well this will work so i thought maybe someone on here might know. thanks
  8. when swapping alts to modern GM alt you do away with most of the old wiring and start over. the GM 1 wire alt is the easiest and most used by swappers. with the CS144 L to S and batt is prolly the way I have seen it done most often. with the 1 wire you only need a small light bulb in the control wire to add a little resistance. that wire is known as the exciter wire and that bulb is usually the light you see on the dash when the engine is not running but the key is on.

    I have had the same problem with drums and this was the cure installed about 18" down stream from MC. https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Wilwood-260-13707-Drum-Brake-10-PSI-Residual-Pressure-Valve-Red,233814.html
  10. a Z for the wife

    The wife is making all the decisions on body and paint for this car. She wanted orange base with micro fine metal flake .004 in the base not the clear. When the clear is applied the base has just flashed and the flake comes through in various amounts so some looks like orange and some metal. Then the car was set in the sun foe a few weeks. Brought back in the shop went over with 600 grit wet then re cleared with mandarin candy. I have not been able to capture the effects at all with a camera yet. So here are a few pics that show a little.

    The trailer set up was nice for sand blasting because we were able to get all under it.
  12. a Z for the wife

    1973 Z found in a barn spring 2017 where it had hung on its side for over 25 years.

    That looks like a very professional paint job. Candy is very hard to do people do not realize how steady and consistent your coats need to be.
