  1. 30mm to move back. http://zhome.com/ZCMnL/tech/240SX5spd/transmission.htm http://www.motortopia.com/cars/1973-datsun-240z-11118/car-pictures/240sx-transmission-swap-14041/transmountmodjpg_Thumbnail1.jpg-269047 http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/113452-240sx-trans-swap-into-280z-measurements-and-install-pix/?hl=240sx http://atlanticz.ca/zclub/techtips/240sxtransmissioninstall/index.html You can find the answer in this forum.
  2. I use 16x8.5 -6 offset in front and 16x9.0 -13 offset in rear with regular flare, no spacer in rear. My guess is this red Z is 16x9.0 in rear which with some fat spacer. The depth of wheel looks like same as mine.
  3. For my memo, Nissan Quest long bolt is Dorman 610-404. M12-1.25, 4.5cm length. https://www.dormanproducts.com/p-2578-610-403.aspx https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b/dorman-autograde-3358/tire---wheel-16779/lug-nuts-and-studs-25062/wheel-lug-stud-12672/fb26df11d790/dorman-autograde-m12-1-25-thread-wheel-stud/610404/4181308
  4. While waiting for the key, working on towing hook. I lost original towing hook somewhere. I purchased this one. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-240z-tow-hook-kit-front-and-rear-s30-SCCA-and-track-day-legal-early-260z/271274853112?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Since it's designed for 240z, I need modify a bit hole location in front. Paint it with leftover paint for caliper to prevent from rusting. Fit nicely now. For the rear, seller sent me 2 holes version, which is different from the photos on the eBay. I explained to seller, he sent me 4 holes version. Since the holes are too big, I need put thick washer to bolt on. It fit perfect now.
  5. Thanks guys. I ordered blank key through eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/2X-DATSUN-KEY-BLANK-BLUEBIRD-1600-410-411-510-620-720-810-910-240Z-260Z-280ZX/141707348148?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Once I get it, I will try Nissan Dealer. What I heard that Nissan dealer can cut the key by the code with few dollars in Japan. It could be same in the States.
  6. Working on towing hook. Since I replace bumper to 240z style, I lost somewhere 280z towing hook. So, purchase this one. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-240z-tow-hook-kit-front-and-rear-s30-SCCA-and-track-day-legal-early-260z/271274853112?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 But actual products has less holes for the rear mount. It won't fit to my 280z. For the front, since i installed Type 1 spoiler, I cannot just bold on it. I need make a hole in order to mount the towing hook on the front.
  7. Found some document about Datsun key code. http://www.hpcworld.com/Print/36041_000_00.pdf But I have no clue from this tech doc....
  8. Thanks @Zhoob2004 I don't know any reliable locksmith around my home. It's easy to find it online You might be right. The key cylinder itself might be worn out. But I'd like to try the key at first.
  9. My key is worn out. I can take it out while running the engine. My previous 240z had the same issue. Hmm... Photoshop Mosaic filter effect is not good idea to apply here... It looks like a #$%^@. I'd like to make a new key to cut based on the key code. I found online site that help me to cut the key based on the code. http://keysforclassics.com/form/ Waiting for their reply.... I also look for blank key for the same shape of this key, but I can't find on eBay...
  10. Thanks Leon! Look forward to driving Z cars together!
  11. After 6 years of working on rebuilding this car, finally, she went outside of the garage for test drive.
  12. @Zhoob2004, I don't remember whether I can access from trunk area on my 75. I already closed interior panels ☹️
  13. @Neverdone, Thanks for your advice. Since there is inner sheet metal, I cannot use weld nuts. I will check nutserts.
  14. HI @Neverdone, I don't know how I can treat that. Even though make a hole How can i bolt on it?
  15. Installing glass fiber bumper. I purchased this bumper long time ago through local Craigslist. For the body side bracket, I purchased from EuroDat @ Classic Z community. It's very strong and fit really well to the body. I welded the bolts to the bracket and put glass fiber sheets. Add a couple more glass fiber sheets to make it durable. Test fitting is great. But I need to think about what I should do for the side of the bumper. I don't have holes to bolt on to the body...
  16. New music video with S30 Hiroji Miyamoto's "Fuyu no Hana" WInter Flower
  17. found a leak from front right side of brake caliper. It leaks from the bottom of the caliper. Went to pick and Pull and get another caliper from 4Runner. It was pretty clean and looks like rebuild recently. Use wire brush to remove surface rust and use PRO15 metal prep to clean up. Then, paint Red using DupliColor. Need to wait a couple of days to completely dry.
  18. Purchased 3" bracket @ eBay. Test fitting. drilled a hole ¥ Cut it Done.
  19. Hey 75280z, You can purchase Door Upper Molding Rubber Seal from here: https://zcarsource.com/door-upper-molding-rubber-seal-240z-260z-280z-70-78-new
  20. Purchase $39 cheap cold air filter. It comes with air filter, aluminum pipe and small aluminum bracket. The pipe size is too big it won't fit to the rubber boot unless removing O-ring. Looks OK. but without bracket, it's hunging like a d*ck. Plan to create a bracket something like this
  21. Thanks Miles. The mystery is solved. The bottom of the brake hose port is not tapered at all. I can see the brake piston. The nipple port has tapered end at the bottom. That's why no matter what nipple I use, no matter how hard I tightened in it did not stop bleeding when I swap nipple and brake hose port. I thought I read somewhere internet someone suggest to swap ports in order to correctly bleeding.... Anyway, thanks a lot of your help! By the way, I purchased rebuild caliper from RockAuto "A-1 CARDONE" brand. It's getting better quality compare to before. It's powder corted with shining silver and internal is also looks clean now. I haven't hooked up Ebrake cable yet. I replace original cable to 280zx cable since the e-brake cable end shape is different.
  22. Thanks seattlejester. Miles also point it out me too. I started new threaded here. Thus, if possible, can you delete this thread? Thanks!
  23. Thanks NewZed and Miles. The speed bleeder nipple is so short. and DORMAN's OEM version is a bit longer than original. I tried both to put it into the brake hose port. It looks like both bleeder nipples not even touching at the tapered section at all. My guess is brake hose port does not have tapered port. I will check other 280zx caplier's brake hose port. Thanks!
  24. Since I cannot solve the nipple issue, this is the current status.
