  1. Thanks for the comments. I'm getting a lot of views and watchers, but no buyers yet. If it doesn't sell on E Bay I may have to go to one of the racing sites.
  2. I'm selling my 240 z because I can't race it anymore. It is just too fast for my Senior Citizen body and I don't want to slow the car down. The brutal acceleration down the drag-strip is causing me to be on the verge of passing out. It needs a younger driver to race it. But it has been a fun car for the last 20 years. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-Datsun-Z-Series/133133199587?hash=item1eff5b68e3:g:1OEAAOSwdx5dRf7M
  3. I have only been driving it around town and to car shows, lately. My racing days are over. 10 years ago my wife said that I raced too fast in the quarter mile for a man my age. So I kept racing because I would not let her think she could be right. However, my Senior Citizen body can no longer handle the G forces and brutal acceleration on the drag strip. It has been a FUN ride but a man has got to know his limitations (Better late than never ).
  4. Somehow I wore out the Hoosier rear tires ?????.....and replaced them with brand-new Mickey Thompson drag radials.
  5. Here are the new AFR heads.....with 2.10" intake valves. Also installed new Comp Cams Pro-Magnum rocker arms and new thick wall push rods. You can also see the new MSD HVC ll ignition coil.
  6. Never on a dyno before. It is a Motown ll 400 ci racing block. My old set up produced a best mph of 163 in the quarter mile. Standard racing conversion for the weight of the Z and that mph equates to over 1000 flywheel hp.
  7. Had to get new AFR cylinder heads because my Edelbrocks were damaged and had cracks. So, no dyno yet but dyno time will be scheduled in 2018.
  8. Awesome job!!! Can't wait to see those turbos hooked up and screaming.
  9. Custom Strut Bar has been installed. This D.E.I. reflective high heat barrier will protect the hood paint.
  10. The Z has been repaired and is ready for action. Since changes have been made, some tuning will be required. Start-Up https://youtu.be/EoDj0McCyQs
  11. The interior shows stock 240 Z seats and G-Force racing harness. The B&M shifter housing was recessed into the transmission tunnel. The gauges and electrical switches were installed into a custom dash panel.
  12. I designed and Mack fabricated this electric water-pump and 6 gallon ice-water combination tank for the air to water inter-cooler. A kitchen sink stainless steel screen strainer blocks the larger ice particles from entering the 25 gpm Meziere pump. The tank fits securely and snugly between the Z's wheel tubs.
  13. These pics show the Quick Time Pro Hoosier street tires and also the Dynomax, #24222 Race Bullet Mufflers.
  14. Here is the installed CBR Performance radiator and Earl's Transmission cooler. I made the front panels, on both sides of the radiator, through which the turbo intakes are protruding. It appears Rustoleum's Automotive Enamel #252459 Cherry Red spray can paint, on the side panels, is a good match to the Z's body paint. These pics show the other side of the turbo air intake tubes. And, how the Spal fan and intake manifold coolant hoses are attached to the radiator.
  15. The turbos, with Evolution Turbonetics waste-gates, have been attached to the headers and to the air-to-water inter-cooler. The 3 1/2" inter-cooler outlet is now connected to the Extreme Velocity carburetor hat. A Greddy blow-off-valve vents pressurized air when the throttle slams shut.
  16. The carburetor is a Pro-Form 750 double pumper with Pro-Series, dual needle and seat, float bowls. CSU handled all the "blow through" modifications and installed Boost Referenced Power Valves in both metering blocks. The following MSD components provide ignition: Billet distributor, #85551, 6-BTM ignition box, #6462, and Blaster coil-2, #8203 The electric water pump is a Meziere, #WP 301 S, 55 gph unit and the one-wire alternator is rated at 140 amps.
  17. The block is a 4.125 bore Motown ll. The rotating assembly is a Speed-O-Motive crankshaft kit consisting of: 3.75" stroke 4340 crankshaft, H-beam 6.00" Eagle rods, and 8.8 compression JE ...2618 forged pistons. The Edelbrock Victor jr. cylinder heads contain: 2.08" intake and 1.60" exhaust valves, 1.55" double valve springs, and Competition Cams Magnum 1.5 roller rocker arms. The Chet Herbert solid roller cam has the following specifications: Intake duration is 242 @.050 and .580" lift, Exhaust duration is 248 @ .050 and .600" lift, Lobe separation angle is 114 degrees, and installed centerline is 110 degrees ( 4 advanced ), Valve lash is .018 intake and .020 exhaust. The Edelbrock Victor jr. intake manifold has had the thermostat housing removed and two AN-16 bungs were welded in place to route coolant to the radiator via stainless steel braided hoses.
  18. Thanks. Yes, I did not feel like talking a lot about "the Incident". But working on the Z, again, has been a very healing experience.
  19. Engine and transmission is going in. Despite the modified cross-member, the Milodon Drag Race oil pan, #31145, would not clear. The pan comes with a windage tray and double trap doors. The tapered sump measures 6" in front and 7 5/8" in rear. I removed the interference portion of the pan at the front to allow cross-member clearance. Mack, then expertly welded a piece of metal to the pan to seal the front end. This modification provided the necessary clearance.
  20. Well....I'm cautiously optimistic that the body will be structurally sound! We will find out at the next race. HaHa...pea gravel and a safety net are an expensive modification.
  21. I have been working on rewiring the Z and preparing the engine compartment for engine installation. The first pic shows the Motorsports Auto type 3 air-dam with fog lights, which I wired to act as turn signals. The other pics show the Design Engineering Inc, #010399, heat screen with adhesive backing that can withstand 1200 F direct heat. The heat screen was applied to the areas where there was minimal header and down-pipe clearance.
  22. Two Aeromotive A 1000, #11101, fuel pumps have their AN-10 outlet fuel lines joined by a Y to a single AN-10 fuel line. This line connects to an Aeromotive A 2000, #13202, Bypass Fuel Pressure Regulator. An Aeromotive,#15107, One-Way AN-10 check valve prevents reverse fuel flow through the inactive fuel pump when only one pump is running for street driving. However, both pumps are activated during racing. Two Aeromotive, #12304, 100 Micron fuel filters are plumbed between the fuel cell and the pumps. The pics also show the Hal coilover shocks and 150 lbs. springs. The 9" Ford has been painted Rustoleum satin black with a brush. Brush streak marks add Character.....
  23. The Z is at home but needs everything to be re-assembled. Big 12" drilled and vented Wilwood 4-piston front brakes have been installed. It was a close fit but with custom off-set spacers the 15" Weld Drag-Light wheels fit. The pic also shows the Techno-Toy-Tuning Tension Control Rod. This rod is much stronger than the stock Datsun unit and eases caster adjustment. The 9" Ford differential received 11 1/4" Strange 4-piston disc brakes. The 9" is a Currie "Plus" unit with 31 spline axles and 5/8" wheel studs. The gears are 3.50's with a Strange spool.
