New guy and First time Z owner!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! My name is Jon and I am picking up a 1974 260Z in a couple days and I could not be more excited!! 


Its been my dream to own one of these cars and a Nissan Skyline but unfortunately, i cannot afford a Skyline lol... so the next best thing is swapping in an RB26DETT motor! 


I am super pumped to begin my restomod and be apart of the community! 


I will definitely lean on the knowledge in this forum to get through this build! I will post some pics of the 260Z this weekend once I have her!

Useful information:

  • Download a Factory Service Manual (FSM). http://www.xenonzcar.com/s30.html
  • Download electrical schematics for your car.  PDFs are easier to read than those found in books. Some are in color.
  • Buy the book How to Restore Your Datsun Z Car by Wick Humble. It will save you hours of searching for "how to" info.
  •  Focus on searching Hybridz as 99% of questions have already been addressed. Start bookmarking Z car parts suppliers.
  •  For SU carbs, parts and instructions go to Ztherapy.  Buy the "Just SUs" video.
  • Remember these are 40 year old cars and will need restoration to be safe and drivable.
  • Join ClassicZCars.com website and search there as well.  
  •  Become well informed about modifications before asking questions. People will be more inclined to  answer informed questions
  •  Search the forums.
  •  Read all of the new member guidelines and FAQs
