As Istated in my INTRO post this is my first Z car and i am nothing but excited to actually get into one of these lil'guys.


Onto my car it is a "74 260Z ,bone stock, and not any major rust (behind the seat ,about dollar sized) she is an early model z.





but she is all there and alot of parts that are normally messed up are in good working order(i.e windsheild washer pump) and the only pics i have of her so far









replaced all the 74 smog equipment with a set of freshly rebuilt roundtop SU carbs , also have replaced the sparkplugs,wires, and all related ignition parts.


Then moved under the rear end and drained the gas tank(nasty job) and pulled the fuel pump .The PO had bypassed the pump because it stopped working so i cleaned the crud off of it and replaced the ground and took the pump apart to clean it and replaced the fuel filter and tested it to see if it works, and it does. .


I started putting her lights and exterior back together... after getting gas into the bowls and putting the new fuel hose into the five gallons of fuel (in the portable gas tank). we pulled the choke pumped the pedal a few times and she started right up,(well sorta)


After we got her to start we called it a day but i spent the next day chasing down $30's for a "spook" front lip and have it waiting on me and i also have a bullet mirror coming in a month or so

Thanks alot buddy!,she is actually not that far from being road ready.... i think all i need to do is replace the shifetr pin/bushings, finish bleeding the clutch, change the front/ rear brakes, and flush the coolant, and change the T-stat and gasket.


Then it's on to interior and "paint"
