Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

Nice project! So did you actually use the Wolfe Steel rear 1/4 panel on the passenger side? I bought a pair of their rear LOWER patch panels a couple years back, and they were HORRIBLE...........I sold them off for whatever I could get, ordered up the Australian patch panels, so much nicer fit!!

Re: Front Strut Comparison PL510, A510, 280ZX, S110 200SX

WOW!!!!!! 8) This is GREAT info for track cars especially! With some drivers, we run out of negative camber adjustment on our vintage race 240Z's, we are NOT allowed to run adjustable lower control arms in MOST groups, so time to do some research on using a different struts! I heard that the SCCA 51...

Re: Headliner install

Yup, the biggest issue with using heavy sound deadening material on the roof on ANY classic car with a vinyl headliner, is if that material de-laminates and drops, you will see it weighing down on the headliner material. Make sure that stuff is stuck GOOD!!

Re: Headliner bow measurements and color order

Yes, I think 4 of 5 positions have THREE holes in a triangular shape, I think one position only has one hole. My guess is that the OEM headliner production had a tolerance, like maybe the bow "loops" could be slightly different than another......?? Thus during assembly, they would potentially move t...

Re: summer is comming! an air conditioning saga

RMS yup, it's a nice cast aluminum bracket that should bolt up to all of the 6cyl L series! FYI the 4cyl vs the 6cyl bolt pattern cast into the front DRIVERS side of the blocks for accessories ARE different. I bet somebody could make it work on a 4cyl, but again, should fit all 6cyl!

Re: summer is comming! an air conditioning saga

Dave do you think Nathan's bracket could be used to adapt an alternator on the DRIVERS side with some lighter mods and/or another adapter? velvethammer is looking to do this in his thread on an L20B, which has a different cast bolt pattern on the block than the L16/L18............

Re: WTB-- small piece of stock white headliner material

One section in between the headliner bows should be plenty......great idea! Wonder if the "direction" of the pattern is an issue? I think the same way, have hoarded lots of silly 510 stuff like an old headliner! See what turns up in Canada, let me know if you can't find, will work something out! TJ ...

Re: summer is comming! an air conditioning saga

On a 240Z L24 6cyl we used a ZX cast aluminum AC bracket (earlier Z is heavy cast iron!), made a simple spacer to adapt the compressor, hung a NEW Sanden AC compressor (SO MUCH more efficient that the original York gigantic monster POS compressor!), flipped the dealer installed condenser so both lin...

Re: Moving Alternator to driver's side - Existing bracket?

Likely fabricate, but maybe you can start with either an air pump bracket or a Z car AC bracket (the 510 AC brackets are kinda hard to find.........more Z's got AC than 510's!). Both are DRIVERS side of block. I do have a 510 flat steel crude welded factory OEM air pump bracket AND a ZX cast aluminu...

Funny how long some of these Datsun's sat NEW on the lots! There are quite a few 69's titled as 70's! Great story!!

Sounds like somebody whacked the crap out of the shaft to get the steering wheel off, maybe crushing/compressing the threads!

Re: Turn Signal and Hazard Relays

I use the same heavy duty ELECTRONIC flasher on both the turnsignal & hazard. Can't remember the brand, but bought at AutoZone, pretty sure part #EP12.
