  1. I bought this 75 280z about two months ago and immediately began playing with it. In the photos I have attached, you can see my updates. I have searched and searched the forum but have been unsuccessful finding what I need. Mostly because I'm not familiar with differentials. Could someone please look at the close up of my differential and tell me if it's an LSD unit? I bought it off of ebay advertised as such. More progress to come as I am about to install my urethane bushings and reinstall the cleaned rear suspension. Also did some carbon fiber work to the car (front air dam, carbon fiber front bumper, and MSA victory spoiler). I have the new Konig Rewinds (16x7) shipping to me and am really excited about it! But please, seriously, I need to know if that's an LSD unit. If not, I was ripped off on ebay. Thanks, Jeff Scoggins \I know this may come across as a week first post. \\I've already gotten very far with the help of this forum! Thanks to everyone and the stickies!
  2. Hello, Just wanted to introduce myself as a new member from central California. I have a 75' 280z that I recently acquired and have begun the process for an LQ4, T56 swap. I have already read quite a few posts on here and it seems to be a great community with a ton of knowledge that I am happy to be apart of!
  3. Hi: New member here, in Scottsdale, AZ. I've owned four 240Zs in the past and just purchased a fifth, to restore (or restify) with my two young sons, teaching them about tools, mechanics and investing time in a project with a collective goal. I wish I never sold my last Z in 2003; I had a sudden and comprehensive case of idiocy. It was very well done (if I do day so myself); a '72 housing an NOS L28 / N42 combo with SUs, a close-ratio 5-speed, coil-overs with Konis, BWA period alloys and a set of Revolution wheels for the track, a big R200 with a proper Nissan Comp LSD and 3.54 r&p. Body was throughly done and repainted in a Porsche silver. Red interior, too. I'm a dumbass for selling that car. Innumerable hours and parts poured into it. Anyway, just bought an interesting '73 240, a genuine Euro-market car imported privately to the U.S. from Switzerland in 1983 by the previous-to-me owner. Don't know how many of these exist in the U.S. and suspect very few survive in the U.K. or mainland Europe. (It's LHD). I hope to chronicle the restification for one of the outlets I write for, or perhaps a new one. (I'm a journalist and former PR/Marketing guy.) The one that got away is below (silver) and the one that just got in is below-below (in orange, with two excited boys). Cheers.
  4. Hi everyone, my name is Jarl. I've been lurking on this forum for a little while in anticipation of purchasing a Z, and a few days ago I bought a 1972 240z. I bought the car from a guy in Ukiah, about 2.5 hours from where I live in Davis, California. Partway through the drive back I stopped off at an auto parts store to do some quick maintenance since the car was running rough. After replacing a few parts I try to start my car and find that the lock tumbler for my ignition was broken. So, I spent an hour trying to get the key to turn and finally ended up pulling apart the steering column and disconnecting the ignition tumbler from the ignition switch and starting it using the switch. I got the car home, and I had a locksmith fix my ignition tumbler. After he dismantled and reinstalled the tumbler in my car, for some reason the car started cranking while the key was turned to the lock position. I assumed that might be a problem with my ignition switch, so I replaced that but I am still having the same problem. (The door is slightly open in this picture. I'm not very good at posing my car for photos apparently.) I don't know much about the history of the car. It has an Anaheim Medical sticker on the front windshield, so I assume it lived down in the Los Angeles area for a time. It came from the factory as an orange color, but somewhere along the lines it was painted blue and the interior was redone. I was considering doing an engine swap, but at the moment I am thinking that I will probably stick with the original L24 motor and see what I can build up from there. It appears to have had an air conditioning system installed previously as well, but that's missing from the car now. The body seems to have surprisingly little rust on it compared to what it could be anyway. There are a couple of quarter sized rust holes in the drivers footwell floor under the pedals, but I don't think the rust is going to be a major problem for this car. A little grinding and welding at some point in the future and the rusty bits will be good as new. Someone already welded in a patch behind the passenger seat. Anyway, I'm not really sure what my plan is for the car in the long run. So far I've been doing a lot of reading on the forums and dreaming of what my car could be eventually. Glad to be here! -Jarl
  5. Hi all, I'm a new member way down in Perth, Western Australia and I have just bought my first Z car - a very rusted 1973 240z. I have done project cars before but they have all been Australian or American makes and I wanted something completely different, so after looking for about 4 months I bought one. These cars are quite rare over here as this was the only 240 I came across and I picked it up for $3,000 - complete but stripped. It needs a full build and I plan on spending anywhere up to 30k or a few years but would like to do as much work myself as I can (I enjoy the building process). I'm looking at doing a Gen 3 LS1 + manual box conversion and would appreciate any builds/threads people might recommend! I have been pouring through the forums and searching but I'm having trouble finding a good post that walks through the conversion (maybe I'm no good at searching). Mainly hoping to find out what things will need modifying/fabrication so I can start planning Any help would be awesome. Cheers - Layton
  6. Hi Fellow Members. Hope you will find this interesting. I'm new to the site and new to Datsun Zs. Had to stop working a few years back as I was diagnosed with Terminal cancer... but I am winning the battle and now need a project to keep me occupied (the golf alone is NOT enough!). As a kid I always loved the 240z and 260z - my Dad had to choose between a 260z and a Reliant Scimitar in 1975 (I was 14 yrs old) and chose the Scimitar; but we spent a lot of time looking and driving the 260z cars that were on the market then (in the UK). I still had some articles from magazines of that era and so I sought out a Z about 4 months ago. Wanted a 240z from the early 70s but couldn't find one that was distressed enough to warrant a complete overhaul, which is what I want to do. I live in Sydney, Aus and found a nice 260z in Brisbane for $5,000. It was a runner but stripped out inside. However, the body is in excellent condition and I also inherited a second engine. Once I got the car home I stripped out the mechanicals and found I had the following setup: L26 Block (1974) E30 head (high comp but small valves); This had worn valves and guides so I am in the process of installing a new set of N42 valves, seats and guides but trying to keep the chamber small for high compression. The head will then be ported to improve flow. Twin Flat top SU carbies Dished STD 83mm pistons The second engine is: F54 block N42 Head with a hot cam fitted (also has been mildly ported). Valve lift is around 11mm and duration is quite long at 260 deg (both Intake and Exhaust). The prior owner said it ran beautifully! Dished pistons are fitted and the Intake manifold is in good condition with nice long tubes. My plan is to completely rebuild the car and both engines. One will be for the road and one for track / hill climb events. L26 The L26 will be bored out (as the cylinders are out of round tolerance and also out of tolerance between cylinders). I have checked the cylinder wall thicknesses and my local rebuilder believes we can go to 86mm (1.5mm out of the wall) without any trouble (would like to hear if anyone else has done this?). This will enable me to use the set of STD L28 flat tops I have acquired. I would like to fit the reworked (and ported) E30 head to this block and the a set of triple weber DCOE 40s I have bought along with a Camtech camshaft (702). I will fit a Microtech LC-16 kit with coil-on-plug and L6 igniter (this will be good for the ignition/timing on the L26 and EFI/Turbo on the L28). So, I end up with a high compression 2.8 ltr engine with triple carbies and a hot cam. Along with this I will do all of the standard stuff to improve the engine to get the best performance from this naturally aspirated setup. Not sure what I will end up with but hope for a torquey engine revving to 7,000 plus and 200+hp. L28(F54) My intention here is to bore out the F54 block and stroke the engine to 2.9 ltrs (fitting a Kameari stroker crank with forged, dished pistons and 240 conrods - unless I can find a used LD28!). This will be coupled with a reworked N42 head to maximise flow/ignition/burn pattern/exhaust velocity and a modified intake manifold/larger TB and a turbo installation. I have read as many of the forums that I can to get as much info on the turbo setup but still can't quite nail down what is THE best turbocharger unit for the F54/N42. I will of course be intercooling and (hopefully) fitting a custom made 3" exhaust and balanced manifold. I am not worried about superhot HP but would like to think I could get in the 300s if I do it well. The rest of the car will be as light as I can get it with modified brakes, suspension, chassis strengthening etc... but minus the aircon and using light and strong materials where replacements are made. I have yet to research running gear on the site so will get into that over the next few weeks. I am having the car resprayed its original silver ( I think it is the 306 silver but not 100% as it has been sprayed Ford Mica Blue !!! and only the firewall bulkhead is original). Would be interested to hear views on who is the best seat/interior panel repairer in NSW/VIC/QLD on Zs? Anyway, that's enough of an intro I think. It's ambitious but I have plenty of time and have committed the funds to do it. Comments welcome and I hope to meet up with co members in the future as I have joined the Sydney Z club. Cheers. ___________________________ Support Wolves...you know it's best!
  7. Hey what's up guys, The names Binly and I'm fairly new to the Z community. I've recently acquired a great interest in the first gen S30's and looking forward to buy a rolling shell soon to throw a LS1 + T56 into her. Right now I drive a 2008 Mazdaspeed 3 and I am tired of it. Looking forward to selling that also. Anyways I just wanted to introduce myself and share future plans I have. I'm a fulltime college student, fulltime employee, and a fulltime auto enthusiast.
