Re: WANTED - 240z Parts

I may have some gutter trims but will need to check. Won't be cheap though as I don't think they are available any more and will be expensive to ship. Let me know if you haven't found any and I will have a look.

Mangatainoka Motors Japanese Car Day July 26th 2020

This popular event is on again this Sunday. This time it is advertised as Japanese vs American Day so there should be a great turnout. Last year there were about 8 Zeds there so would be good to see that many again. Unfortunately I doubt I will be there as some tuning issues to sort on my Zed first....

Re: Wanted- carb set up for L28

I've got OER cabs on my car and they are no harder to look after than Webers. You can use Weber jets in them and they are easier to dial in due to a couple of features that Weber's lack, an externally adjustable float level as well as an adjustable accelerator pump. I've done the numbers a couple of...

Re: 240z Upholstery

I purchased a set of carpets from MSA a few years ago and quality was OK. Worst bit is that the drivers side plastic bit where your heels rest is on the wrong side of the car. I then added some Supercheap black carpet mats to protect the new carpet. And I got some screw down carpet clamps to grip th...

Re: 240z Upholstery

I purchased some replacement seat covers from MSA many years ago when I semi restored my first Z. I took them to an upholsterer to fit and he told me he could have made them here in the same material for what they cost me to purchase and import. Might be worth checking locally before you purchase fr...

Re: 260z front strut insulator and upper spring seat

Hi Steve, I haven't got to removing the struts out of my car yet as been too busy working. Hope to do so in the next couple of weeks though. Do you still want the isolator and spring seat ? If so how about I send them to you and you can check for fitment. I'm sure the isolator is fine, it is just th...

240Z or 260Z Steering Column Shroud

Does anyone have a steering column shroud for 240Z or 260Z they want to sell?

Re: Article in Classic Driver magazine

Quite a good article Bernie although I think your estimate of prices is a bit low and that Peter Kelly's are closer to reality.

Re: 260z front strut insulator and upper spring seat

Hi Steve, Sorry, finally got to the container yesterday. I have both size insulators and some spring seats that are all the same so I'm not sure if they are 240 or 260. I'm intending to change the shocks in my Z over the enforced break so will check if the spare I have is the same as on my 240. Sorr...

Re: 260z front strut insulator and upper spring seat

Hi Steve, According to my parts manual, the strut insulator is the same front and rear and 240Z or 260Z. I know I have a couple of spares of these. I do have some upper spring seats too but not sure if they are 240Z or 260Z ones and the parts manual shows these as different numbers. I will get to th...

Re: G’day Z clubbers

Hi Paul, I doubt you will find much in NZ. I'm pretty sure that Nissan only imported 10 low screen Roadsters in to NZ. I know a few have been imported ex the USA and I doubt any of them will have been imported with spares of the cigarette lighter. I imported a low screen 67.5 Roadster my self (which...
