  1. Hi: Doing some research and cannot find this; maybe it doesn't exist. Any stock pistons (flat-top or minimal dish) that will fit an L6 with roughly 30mm pin height in 86-88mm bore dia.? Thanks.
  2. So I found myself a vintage plate issued in the year my car was built. Some fun numbers on it, too. But I also have historic vehicle plates already issued. Which would you use? (The car's on historics now, which preclude any periodic emissions testing and listed-mileage insurance. Actual numbers fogged to protect the innocent.) Thanks.
  3. Yes, I know! I'd settle for an R200 3.9 LSD, but I really want to avoid the extra weight. I've looked into the Scooby stuff and a mid-2000s WRX had an R180, but even those are hard to come by. I have a source for flanges, though. Don't want a 4.38, though; not doing a drag car.
  4. Hi. Looking for an R180 with limited slip, 3.9:1 ring & pinion which doesn't need immediate admission to the Intensive Care Unit. Alternatively, could do with a fresh LSD unit to install in my existing 3.9:1 R180. Also, unlikely to find one, but looking for an Electromotive XDi (or XDi2) distributor-less ignition system for six-cylinder (box, three-coil unit, trigger wheel). I'm in Phoenix. Thanks.
  5. Hi: Looking for a good set - in perfect shape, needing nothing or good rebuildable - of 45 DCOEs for an L28 build. I actually have a manifold & linkage already, so I don't need that. Alternatively, I'd also consider a set of Mikuni 44 PHH sidedrafts, but those are quite rare these days. Thanks.
  6. Did a little digging on the interwebulars and found that the car in this thread is the car I bought and this OP'er is the prior owner, now deceased. Pretty interesting story. Though, I have the original speedo (in kph) and the markings on the back of "26 07 2" equate to 1976 (!). Will have to look under the dash and for more info.
  7. Hi: New member here, in Scottsdale, AZ. I've owned four 240Zs in the past and just purchased a fifth, to restore (or restify) with my two young sons, teaching them about tools, mechanics and investing time in a project with a collective goal. I wish I never sold my last Z in 2003; I had a sudden and comprehensive case of idiocy. It was very well done (if I do day so myself); a '72 housing an NOS L28 / N42 combo with SUs, a close-ratio 5-speed, coil-overs with Konis, BWA period alloys and a set of Revolution wheels for the track, a big R200 with a proper Nissan Comp LSD and 3.54 r&p. Body was throughly done and repainted in a Porsche silver. Red interior, too. I'm a dumbass for selling that car. Innumerable hours and parts poured into it. Anyway, just bought an interesting '73 240, a genuine Euro-market car imported privately to the U.S. from Switzerland in 1983 by the previous-to-me owner. Don't know how many of these exist in the U.S. and suspect very few survive in the U.K. or mainland Europe. (It's LHD). I hope to chronicle the restification for one of the outlets I write for, or perhaps a new one. (I'm a journalist and former PR/Marketing guy.) The one that got away is below (silver) and the one that just got in is below-below (in orange, with two excited boys). Cheers.
