  1. So if you turn the ignition switch to "run", pull the wire that connects to the temperature probe and then ground the wire, the temp gauge should go all the way to full hot. If, while performing this test, the gauge bounces around, then there is an issue with the sensor wire or the gauge. Could be loose or dirty connections. These links may be of some help: https://www.zcar.com/forum/10-70-83-tech-discussion-forum/280481-oil-temp-gauge-not-working.html https://www.zcar.com/forum/10-70-83-tech-discussion-forum/47277-temp-gauge-not-working.html
  2. Make model and year of the car? Any modifications to the car? Stock gauges? Describe what happens to the temp gauge if you ground the wire connected to the temp sensor.
  3. Many R200 3.9 differentials used in Z cars.

  4. How do you use the car? Daily driver? Race car?
  5. Steering rack parts have been NLA for many years. So called "rebuilt steering racks" also need those same NLA parts. Always ask the dealer if the rebuilt/new rack actually has new parts in it. If you search HybridZ you will see this topic was beat to death years ago. If you find the parts you need post the supplier here for us.
  6. What you have here is known as a Kluge: a collection of ill fitting parts forming a disgusting whole. Looks like the PO used hard lines that were too long. To get the lines to fit he took up the extra length by coiling the hard lines. The lines are not anchored correctly. Get rid of the yellow zip ties and do it right. Replace the hard lines with stock lines or make your own. If you are not up to making your own hard lines find a shop or web site that can make the lines at the correct length. Note: the fittings on Z cars are all 10 x 1.0mm double inverted flare.
  7. With the one inch MC you will notice that it takes more pedal force to stop the car. If you are going to larger calipers on the front then you will be all set. Even with the one inch MC you may still notice longer pedal travel before the brakes engage after you install larger front calipers. It is kind of a domino effect when modifying brake systems.
  8. Some after market master cylinders do not have the large reservoir in front. As long as the master cylinder is correct in all other aspects then it doesn't matter. You can always swap the front reservoir from the old master cylinder onto the new one for a "stock" appearance.
  9. Join and search ClassicZcars. https://www.classiczcars.com/ ClassicZcars specializes in stock restoration. Also buy the book How to Restore Your Datsun Z Car by Wick Humble.
