  1. Oh right! Well unfortunately I have that entire unit removed just to get the hood to sit flat first before adding the pin unit.
  2. The hood sometime hits the front grill top when opening and closing. Got it pretty low in the front. What catch bolt in the hood are you referring to? Not sure I follow.
  3. Hmm well that could be something right there also. I have full size head stainless bolts with a lock washer and regular washer. However I did remove all of those just to see if the hood would sit flat and it still didn't lay right. Almost like it's a teeter totter in the middle. It's not that drastic but definitely cant get it right. Going to take some photos and try the advice given.
  4. Ok so I think I really screwed up here but thought I would ask anyway 😔. I have a 71 series 1 240z 12/70. I painted it myself for the first time painting any car and it came out great, I spent countless hours on youtube and calling around for advice on what to do and what not to do what to use and what not to use, order of things to do it in. But this is something that I missed and wish I would have read it or done before I painted the car. ALIGN ALL THE PANELS FIRST then paint the car. I did it the opposite and now I think I'm screwed. The hood won't align. After the car was pai
  5. 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?
  6. 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
  7. 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.

  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Do you know if a series 1 car has a fuel pump wire in the rear harness?
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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/
