  1. How do I wire my Ls1 engine harness that is wired to allow the engine control module to control two radiator fans. My aftermarket loom is terminated with two relays: one for the low speed fan and the other for the high speed fan. My fan is a two speed ford Lincoln unit. I would like to wire it so as to be controlled by the GM computer. Does anyone have any schematics or photos of the Ford fan being controlled by the GM computer?
  2. I agree. They are a close match for the last remaining Fittipaldi I have. Three were stolen a few years ago. Zgeezer
  3. I used the a/t shifter out of my 240Z. Pulled it out, removed the transmission actuating arm and swapped it over from the passenger side to the driver's side. Mechanical connection with a rod threaded to fit the shifter arm and the aftermarket adjustable arm on the transmission. Perfect fit to the transmission tunnel. Neutral lockout will be wired (I hope) through GM's plastic lockout switch on the driver's side of the transmission. Sorry about the general language; but if you can get your hands on a 240/260Z or early Maxima, automatic shifter all will become clear.
  4. The spacing between the supports is the same for all three LS, because that spacing is determined by John's a/c compressor. That being said, I've installed Johns a/c kit on my truck engine. I cut a .75 spacer out of AL and used it to space the entire assembly forward to match my truck alternator and crank pulley. Looks good. zgeezer
  5. What are you actually looking for: the entire shift mechanism or only the chrome plated arm that is attached to the transmission actuating lever?
  6. If you are using JTR's radiator and mounting, a Lincoln Mark VIII two speed fan with shroud is a perfect fit. Need only cut out a portion of the shroud to give more room to remove the radiator hoses. Two "L" shaped brackets for the bottom , 4 pop rivets to secure the brackets to the bottom of the JTR bottom mounting bracket and you are ready to go. Flashes 50 amps on startup..Big fuse and relays recommended. Some Thunderbirds may also work. This is not the smaller Taurus fan. JTR's first 240z/csb engline swap manual used a top radiator mount from a 71 or so Nova with v/8. If you are u
  7. This is the relay on early 240z with Automatic Transmission that is mounted on the firewall near the battery. It works with the inhibitor switch that is mounted on the passenger side of automatic transmissions. It prevents ("inhibits") startup in any gear other than park and neutral. These are no longer available from Nissan. Does anyone have a wiring schematic for the interior of this relay. Something that one might be able to use to construct a functional equivalent using modern relays? Or, in the alternative, does anyone have one for sale or trade. z
  8. Sorry, it appears they were sold.


    What I do have is one set of 4 stud 300zt hubs w/o bearings, spacers and Toyota ventilated front disks. Along with a set of unused Brembo 5 lug 300zx rear discs... part of a rear disc  brake conversion.




  9. I've embarked on the installation of a Vintage Air evaporator, using John's Cars compressor and mounting, and a stock copper condenser out of a 280Z. I like the condenser because it is a perfect fit.. bolts in with existing bolt holes and the high and low pressure line align with the radiator mount. This unit has been stored for a number of years with duct tape covering the orifices of both lines. The lines appear to be 37 degree cone and very similar to either jic or an fittings. Does any know what standard fitting was used on 280z condensers?
  10. Thanks everyone. I found a trading partner. z
  11. Thanks for the response. I ordered the mounts off the JTR website and one week later PayPal refunded the money. Thanks for the offer; but, I'm not much of a fabricator. z
  12. JTR used to carry an elegant radiator mount for installing a Chevrolet radiator in a 240Z. I need the kit or just the top bracket. If you have one send me a pm with your price. g
  13. I think I have a set....somewhere. I'll look Monday. Do you have a 280Z OEM radiator overflow bottle and cap? z
  14. I really "need" an OEM 280Z radiator overflow bottle. No interest in aftermarket or "it'll fit" swaps from other cars. I have two early "D" hubcaps [series I-- '70/'71] that are in reasonable shape, plastic "D" slightly faded, but pins are good and the chrome is good to about 3 feet. These hubcaps are NOT painted, are either chrome or stainless, and are not bent up. Straight across trade. You send me a usable bottle with cap (I don't need the mount) and pay for shipping. I'll pack these in two pizza boxes and send them to you. Photos available if you have the bottle. z
  15. Ok, I wish to replace the fusible link from the passenger side rail to the starter in an early 240z. I have the harness side intact. I do not have the link. The quick disconnect is a latchable plastic holder with one male blade on the body side and a matching female on the link to the starter. That blade is an unusual size. I believe it is something in the order of 10 or 10.mm. Does anyone know where I might find these connectors and latch "box"? I am not interested in purchasing a complete fusible link: only male/female/and plastic connector. With these connectors, I expect
  16. I had noticed that later 280z's have an oil pressure with two male blades configured in a T. Does anyone have drawing of the internals? If it is a simple ground contact, then that may be as simple as wiring the ground side of a relay directly into one of those terminals. It can't be that simple. I need something to kill the electric pump in event of an accident. G
  17. I've wired my 70z with an in-tank FI pump. I'm using the fuel pump wires Datsun built into the body harness. I'm looking for an easily mounted inertia safety switch. Ideally something small enough to be mounted on a front "frame" rail. Any recommendations or pictures of installations. g
  18. What year? '74's are quite different.
  19. I had a similar issue on my '70. Bare shell, missing engine compartment wiring, hacked body harness, and a "clean" instrument harness with plastic terminals that turned to powder at a touch. My combination switch and the spare were badly corroded from water intrusion into the heavy duty black plastic tote that I used for storage. [summer heat and water in a semi sealed container destroyed all white plastic terminal ends and corroded the aluminum]. I purchased a complete 24 or 28 circuit wiring package from Ron Francis wires.. I decided not to do a complete custom re-wire; instead,
  20. I'm looking for four adapters to mount Honda 4x100 wheels to Datsun. Prefer Ross's MotorSport adaptors if available. Others would be considered. Zgeezer
  21. You're right, of course, in that the mc is still on the car and not in my vice. However, I'm looking for some direction as to why one side of the MC pumps and holds pressure, while the other does not. I suppose my real question is rather or not these "symptoms" would point to a mis-adjusted rod or a faulty bleeding procedure or a faulty/corroded m/c. I'm looking for direction. z
  22. I am bleeding my master cylinder while installed in the car. The power brake unit is from a 280zx 2+2 and is approximatly 10.5 inches in diameter. I've run a clear plastic tubing from each master cylinder bleed port to its corresponding fluid reservoir. I've filled each with DOT 5. After two strokes pushing air, the front reservoir has a complete cycle: fluid enters the tubing and on the second stroke completes the circuit and re-enters the reservoir. The back reservoir is different. On the first stroke fluid fills the tubing to almost the level of the loop back into the reservo
  23. I'm looking for a company/individual that can refurbish 240-280Z combination switches. I prefer to work with a contributor to hybridz.org and I'd like to stick to someone here in the West. If you do the work or know of someone who does, please send me a PM at this site. z
  24. I need one, maybe two, combination switches refurbished. Can you help me locate someone that will do this service? I've read that a Dave Irwin in Washington state will refurbish 240-280Z combination switches. I understand that he has posted here relating to wiring the Honda Civic wiper motor and over at Classic Z under the name similar to Z'SONDABRAIN . I know of a website "Datsun 240Z Upgrade" located at 6421 105th St NE in Marysville, Wa 98270. However no-one responds to emails sent to their website "contact us" address or USPS first class mail to the above address. I
  25. Back in 2002 a member "Brad" posted CAD or other file type with the dimensions of an aluminum panel to replace the stock plastic inset that contains a courtesy light, heater controls, and center vent. His panel had a number of variations including all gauge, radio, and heater control cutouts. Are there any old timers here that downloaded and buried that file for future reference and would be willing to share it with me. Failing the file, does any one have contacts with "Brad", the original poster. I belief the file contained the following information... logos perhaps. "Omniglas
