  1. I really appreciate the advice. I do have a good multi meter and am going to be working on the car later today with a neighbor. I will post some pics and update with any progress. Thanks !
  2. It is a crate motor that my friend says is rated at 280hp or so. It has a Mallory HEI distriibutor and an electric fuel pump mounted underneath by the fuel tank. The engine is Carbureted as well. I started reading the JTR v8 conversion manual again so maybe I can figure this out alone, but having a person along would be awesome too :)
  3. I have a 1972 Datsun 240z with a v8 conversion that I purchased from a friend that moved away. It has sat in my garage for about a year and a half now, and I would really love to get it fired up and running He had taken the dashboard out to repaint the entire car and that never happened. I haven't been able to get the car to run since having it towed to me. I connected all harness plugs after re-mounting the dash, and have purchased the JTR manual along with multiple wiring diagrams in color. The starter turns over, and I do get lights on the dash as well as the head lights and tail lights. I do not get spark nor fuel it seems. Anybody close to Tyler, Texas want to help out ? I bet it is something trivial that I am overlooking. I am not a mechanic, but am an enthusiast for sure.
  4. That is some sort of sticky adhesive or sealant actually. Luckily it is not rust
  5. Hello fellow forum members ! My name is Patrick and I just wanted to introduce myself. I joined the site a few days ago and have been scouring the forums for information to help me get my newly acquired 1972 240z up and running. I purchased it from a friend of mine that had initially taken the interior out to get the car repainted a different color. That never happened and he was too lazy to put it all back together. The car has a CSB V8 swap and a 700R4 Auto transmission. There is no rust of any kind that I can see, and the interior is in great shape. The biggest challenge for me is going to be putting the dashboard back in and wiring everything. I currently daily a 600hp Volkswagen GTI, and also own a 1991 Nissan NX2000 that I absolutely love. Here are some pics of the 240z currently. I look forward to learning more about this platform from all of you. Thanks for your time !
  6. The firewall wasn't touched at all, but it does look pushed back quite a bit in the photos now that I look at it Carpet should be in today, and then I will start putting stuff together and get it started this week. I LOVE zcardepot thus far !
  7. Hello All !My name is Patrick and an owner of a newly acquired 1972 240z in paint code 112 with a CSB V8 swap I bought the car for a steal from a friend of mine, and am planning on a few trivial mods before I start to enjoy driving it. I just need to get the dashboard and some interior body panels installed as my friend was planning on repainting the car. I am so glad that he didnt because I love the Lime Green/Lemon Green color. Here are a few pics of the car itself:
