    Speedo/Tach Lenses

    Trying to de-junk. I never got to give you the full tour as I was messing around with my (former) daily driver. @jhm I'll give the OP two weeks to respond - if you want them to re-sell, come and get em!

    Heater Hose Firewall Grommet '75 - '78

    I don't have that piece, but will offer the knowledge of UP TO 1995 Pathfinder / D21 pickup trucks used nearly identical AC grommet blank-off and pass-through bulkhead grommets. The heater grommet you are looking for LOOKED similar, but it also crumbled upon attempt to remove it, whereas the AC grommet must have used a different compound. In the picture below, the top grommet was removed from a 1995 Pathfinder. The middle blank-off grommet was removed from a 1993 D21 pickup The bottom grommet is stock to the Z.

    Something I saw today that wasn't there in January, was after selecting the checkbox "I am not a robot" was a series of pictures to match with a brief description. Again, I had to use Internet Explorer...

    I have experienced the same. I used Firefox, currently up to date. V58.0 It appears to be a browser related issue. I was able to leave feedback (and see feedback) using IE 11.0.9600.........

    Maxi-fuse fusible link upgrade

    I was able to find the contacts here in the CONUS from https://www.digikey.com/ 7-10 AWG 962932-1 10-11 AWG 962930-1 11-13 AWG 962928-1 All the above part numbers are available at a minimum quantity of one, just make sure you select 'Cut tape' rather than 'Tape and reel' Hope this helps others in updating the vulnerable fusible links.

    Maxi-fuse fusible link upgrade

    Had to dig and find my old hard drive from the old PC (3 PC's ago). Dang, I did this all in late 2007. I was able to locate the contacts from TGS Onlineshop (Europe) http://shop.t-g-s.de/ , and POSSIBLY from http://www.eagleday.com/ (Eagleday changed the part numbers of the actual part, so being able to compare all the data was an educated guesstimate, but I never ordered those terminals from them, other stuff, but not the subject terminals.), but I was able to salvage sufficient lengths of wire from the donor car(s) by isolating the wires inside the cabin, as the harness enters behind the dash on the drivers side, and extract the wires from the harness by pulling from the engine bay. I was able to request samples from AMP (now Tyco?) but they did not have any terminals available for 10 gauge wire, and although I was able to source some Paladin ratchet style crimp pliers (those were well WORTH the $$), I did not obtain the dies required for the larger wire size. I would like to upgrade my current setup to use a heavier gauge wire from the alternator) to feed the fuse block (and in turn, the battery). [Edit - I attempted to attach the file from AMP but it did not upload for whatever reason - The part numbers are Version B (single wire seal-system)/A (unsealed): = 6-10mm wire = 962939-1 / 962933-1 = 4-6 mm wire = 962937-1 / 962931-1 = >2.5-4 mm wire = 962935-1 / 962929-1 Hope this helps what you were looking for.

    Junkyard Searches

    I did not find an appropriate forum for this posting. FYI for all those who have a Pick and Pull brand junkyard in their area. For those who don't, and wish to make a trek or have parts pulled for them, this would be for you as well. I did a search here for "row52" and didn't see any results. Check out http://row52.com/ You can search nationwide for a specific vehicle in participating junkyards. VIN's listed as well as pictures as the vehicle is stationed in the yard. I've had better results logging in rather than attempting to search anonymously, FWIW

    Alternate HVAC controls in a 280

    Thanks for the alternative options. FWIW - the control unit in post #9 is fully electronic AND fits in the original bezel location.

    Alternate HVAC controls in a 280

    My apoligies in my delayed response. As far as the DCC units, I believe someone has started a seperate thread on the functionality of those. The Maxima control panel mentioned earlier FITS. I'm not saying it WORKS, but that is due to my delay in additional research. I did not achive success on the Altima system, basically due to the conflict with the transmission tunnel. The Mazda RX7 (87) control panel also FITS, however, you really gotta love the hot orange symbols on that, also, it is completely electrical. No cable operation for vents, temp or recirc. Only saying that if someone else is wanting a project. Right now there is a subie WRX in the j/y that I need to pull the dash and do some measuring. It is also fully electric. The vintage air unit looks promising, as well as a custom fabbed evap / heater core box that flows into the S2000 air management unit.

    Rebuilding 240z Gauges to Work with 280z Harness

    Just curious - which year 280 harness / internals are you using? If I recall correctly, the 75 - 76 gauges have the same font style as the 240, the process you are going through might be a bit less painful if you use those years. Also, I recall the 75 had an amp gauge while the 76 had a volt gauge. With that said, I'm not saying that you could skip the changes to the mounting configuration.

    Alternate HVAC controls in a 280

    It may work, but by first measurements, it appears to be too long (right to left to fit into the cabin) Last week I managed to tear into a 95 Altima - and grabbed the air management/heater case - It looked like it would fit, but I found out when I got home it was about 2" too tall. There was a 94 240SX in the junkyard this week - lucky for me someone already removed the dash! The air management/heater case was nearly IDENTICAL, with the exception of the heater flap door motor mounting location and a few chassis mounts. I opted not to get the 240SX casing, as it was broken. But the internal flaps and mechanisms appeared as though they could be swapped from either unit. Reason I bring this up, an unmolested Altima can be found much easier than an unmolested 240SX, at least where I live.

    Brackets fabricated and the panel installed in the test mule. http://forums.hybridz.org/index.php?/gallery/image/23734-maxima/ Note to interested parties - be sure and grab the Maxima mounting frame when getting donor parts. Cut down as needed.
