  1. I'm looking into fuel pumps and wiring, also off the topic of electrical but also for the addition of the triples, what do you guys do with this pipe? Plug it or add a breather?
  2. Success! Tapped her in a bit tried the prybar and turn deal but didnt seem to work. Used a bunch of WD40 while vise grips were on the bolt and kept spinning it back and forth and pulling out at the same time.. finally she popped out. Loaded with rust. Almost looked like brown sugar.. totally dry meaning that Wd40 didn't reach that far back. Think the heat also really helped. The hole was completed packed with brown sugar rust. Made a little hook scraper with a coat hanger and was able to scratch and pull about 90% out. Then used compressed air to blow it out, then alittle brake cle
  3. I have been scared to push it back in because I think its away from the threads in the block and only stuck in the cover but may have to try that. I feel like it could break at any moment. I'm so close haha.. It may be the original water pump, says ASUGI or something like that on it. It wasn't leaking but figured since I have the motor out it might be a good idea to change it, what a brave and dumb soul I am for attempting this. I hear alot of broken bolt stories about this. Well just got home from work, I'm going to have another go at it.

  5. Right, I have been looking at the high capacity pumps 70 gph but 3-7psi. Someone had mentioned there is a blue taped up wire in the 240z harness in the rear that was not used. I was curious if that was on a series 1 car also, or just the latter cars. I know the 73 240z uses a "pusher" electric pump in the rear in conjunction with the mechanical pump up front so that one definitely has the wire in the rear.
  6. I wouldn't say it turns easily but it does turn all the way around. I saw some pictures online of the other side of that cover because I couldn't remember what it looked like. Looks like it just goes through that deep channel hole in the cover and then into the block. It's like its stuck in the cover. I'm pretty sure it's out of the block threads because if you compare the length of the other large bolt that did come out, it unscrews from the block at a certain point and the bolt that is stuck seems to be about 1/4" farther out than that point assuming they are the same length bolts.
  7. Do you know if a series 1 car has a fuel pump wire in the rear harness?
  8. Have my motor out of my early 71 240z. Wanted to change the water pump and like always running into some kind road block. This time it's the bottom water pump bolt .All the other bolts came out except for this stubborn bastard. After breaking countless bolts on this car in different parts like panels you get the feel for when a bolt is going to break. I immediately stopped and tried a few things like heating the bolt up carefully with a torch because it's a super long bolt that disappears into the aluminum timing cover and goes into the block and penetrating oil was not going to reach that far
  9. Upgrading the 71 Series 1 240Z to triple DCOE 40 Italian Webers. My car is pretty much stock. What is a must as far as parts/mods needed to run this set up? I'm new to these carbs and the set I have is used and I dont know their history other than they look to be in good shape from the outside lol. Came with a Cannon Intake. Will I need a mandatory electric fuel pump, pump relays, oil pressure switches, fuel pressure regulator? I read some posts here but everyone had a different car, some with pusher electric pumps at tank ect. Would like to keep it as clean and stock looking as p
  10. Thanks they have a date stamped on the back 1976. So maybe stick with the factory size 195/70 14? Found these Vitour Galaxy performance 91H tires with white letters anyone ever run this brand? https://www.performanceplustire.com/tires-for-sale/vitour-tires/galaxy-r1-5/ty:Tire:ts:195-70-14/
  11. Just picked these old school wheels up they are 14x6 and have a zero offset. I did a little photoshopping with the wheels on a car similar to mine lol.. I need a tire that will last, good for sticking to road when driving curvy roads at higher speeds and Is somewhat comfortable for long drives. I like the old school look with alot of rubber filling the wheel well but also don't want to get a tire that is too wide or tall that rubs when turning. Definitely going to get white letter tires or use a paint pen if I have to I guess. Now that I have the wheel sizes. What do you guys think for
  12. That's a pretty awesome tool, been a member on this site since 2006 not to mention working on tons of cars of all makes and never seen that. Thanks. As far as an objective on this 240, I want to fill the wheel well with the largest performance tire that wont rub with my set up. Being able to raise or lower with the coilovers is nice but finding the right combination is what I'm looking for. I also have a painted fiberglass front valance that I dont want to scrape on the ground so slamming the car is not really what I want to do.
  13. In this photo #1 is the stock 195/70 14 #2 is 225/60 14. Dont know if #2 tire being too wide would rub.
  14. Toyo proxes look good. However when comparing the height of the 50 series tire you suggested, it looks like it's almost 2 full inches shorter than the factory 195/70 14 tire. (#1) 195/70 14 stock vs (#2) 225/50 14 in picture. A 225/60 14 is taller.
