  1. You have got a lot of excellent replies here,hope you don't get discouraged.Carefully read the ones from Michael and Gollum.Datsun z cars were built as a true sports car and i don't think quiet and smooth fits anywhere.Hard to compare a German car to a Datsun.These guys have all built their cars so are speaking from experience.I chose a Sbc carb engine for it's ease of installation and cost,bigger brakes and coil-overs.To quiet down the ride,there are all kinds of options here.I chose much horsepower,loud exhaust and ear plugs.
  2. By your photos,it looks like you installed a new harness? Start with some basics to understand the ignition system. Using an ignition switch along with a starter button and kill switch might be better. A site like this one may help www.how-to-build-hotrods.com/hot-rod-wiring.html
  3. Got your message.Substitute the one military green t shirt XL for black XL,Thanks.

  5. These covers were bought in the late 90's by the previous owner but sold the car before they were installed. I believe he was restoring a 260Z and never said where he bought them.
  6. I am not going to use them on my car.Total wrong color.Still do not know if they are factory or after-market. I'll probably end up putting them on e-bay.
  7. Seems to me,there was an article on here about using poly jeep motor mounts similar in dimensions to Datsun mounts?
  8. Hi fellow z owners,i picked up these seat covers in a trade.Anyone recognize the color? Kind of a greenish beige.Don't know if they are factory or after market either.Thanks in advance.
  9. I installed the 4" and 2 5/8" a year ago.That size fit into the original gauge metal housing with a little modification so they bolt properly into the dash pad.The tach and speedo adjust buttons are easily reached with your finger.The smaller gauges are adjusted with a supplied remote cable and button.My turn signals,hi-beam indicator and fuel gauge are on the speedometer face.I also use their remote shift light on top of the dash.These are a top quality product,the only issues i have is, the tach and speedo placement is dark and hard to see in the daytime.Night is ok.I am sending mine back to change face to a lighter color,hope that helps.Also,in daylight,the gauges all have a reflective glare,maybe their optional domed window would help that.
  10. I changed all my suspension bushings to poly two years ago. Moustache bar and t/c rods are only rubber bushings left in car.Also put grease fittings everywhere.Big improvement,no squeaks.The poly kit fit and installed great.
  11. Call this guy by phone.He is great to talk to and knows datsun cars.Some people just don't have time for e-mails.texts etc.
  12. I ordered the window parts from z car source on september 09.After a couple of e-mails and couple of phone calls,still no delivery on october 15.I would look elsewhere for these parts.Poor service.
  13. Congratulations,impressive work.Enjoyed your videos on youtube.
  14. i have an r180 with 3.54 ratio,tremec 5 speed,225/50/16 tires =140+
  15. installed a new rebel wiring system in my 1970 last winter and never bothered to wire the wiper motor,thinking I would do the Honda swap.mine were dragging slowly across the windshield,some times stopping.couple of weeks ago i took the motor out,ran a wire from a relay to the slow speed wire directly on the motor,by-passing the factory relay on the motor.pretty sure that factory wiper relay and wiring is the problem on some of the older z cars.i use a switch with an on/off function combined with a momentary function.actually a rear wiper switch from my 1983 zx parts car.the wipers work like a new car now,very fast and smooth, saving me the work of a Honda change over.i try not to drive it in the rain ,so,one speed and momentary switch to park it works for me.i found the original wiring harness was very troublesome in the car and changing it over was the most important thing I done to that old car.old wiring and switches can cause problems.cole hersee # 59071 switch has those functions and probably have one to run both speeds.a rain treatment system on the windshield helps lube the wipers too. z mouse, Please try to type this using semi proper sentence structure...
