Triple Mikuni 44 Nphh-2

Mon, 12/02/2018 - 23:13
Some may have noticed im selling my triple Mikuni 44s.

These are Type 2 or sometimes called Type Q carbs and are the rare early style that came on Datsun roadsters and I believe what was offered in the Competition Catalogues.

These came off a running L28 (unknown specs) but as always could do with a clean.

Also comes with a bag of linkages.

Price for AusZcar is $1800+ postage Attached Thumbnails

Mikuni Carburettor Id Thread - Phh

Mon, 12/02/2018 - 22:43
Ok, so I've been looking at a lot of places recently to source some Triple Mikuni 44 carb bodies and I keep coming across different versions of these.

So I figured I'd start a thread with photos of each style so that we can all more easily identify these carbs.

Contributions and corrections are welcome along the way.

Item Pick-Up At Smithfield - Assistance Required

Mon, 12/02/2018 - 21:46

I'm two weeks into jury duty and it looks like there is another week or two involved.

 

I'd like to purchase a space-saver wheel, which is on eBay, from a wreckers at Smithfield but they only operate Mon-Fri.

 

I'd ideally like someone to first look at the wheel and then procure it, if it is a described. I could drop around that evening and collect it.

 

If you could assist, would you PM me to work out payment and timing. Thanks.

76 260Z Rhs Door

Mon, 12/02/2018 - 20:25
My current door has significant rust around the hinge area and some along the bottom and thinking it may be better to start with a new door.
Its a 76 2 seater so not 100% sure what doors would be exchangeable to suit the different latch mechanisms and disgn.

Any help on parts and info would be awesome.

280Zx Free To A Good Home, Parts For Sale

Mon, 12/02/2018 - 18:27

Model: 280zx (1979)
Location: Melbourne
Price and Payment Conditions: Shell free to a good home, aftermarket parts extra (who takes the car gets first preference on all parts)
Item Condition: Fair - all rust has been meticulously removed and new panels welded in, kick panels in front of rear wheel well still need replacement panels welded in.
Body: Good condition
Mechanical: Rolling Shell, Requires towing 
Extra Info: Old build thread here: http://www.viczcar.com/forum/topic/11913-280zx-project-bringing-a-beast-back-from-the-dead/?hl=beast
Contact Details: PM preferred 

 

**Shell comes with 95% of stock parts required to finish project**, a few pieces may need to be sourced. As it sits is what you get. Lots of money has gone into this project and this will be a bargain for anyone interested in a 280zx project.

 

Unfortunately my career has taken all my time the last few years and I can't justify leaving this sitting around in my garage any longer. I'd prefer it go to someone who will actually finish it, otherwise it will have to be scraped. 

 

Brief description:

- All rust removed from the body and replacement panels welded in (albeit amateurishly)

- All suspension bushes replaced with nolathane bushes

- Wheel wells have been cut and re-welded ready for flares to fit larger wheels

- 70% of the car painted in matte black

- Underside of the car repainted with black stone guard paint

- Rear bumper deleted, panel welded flush (amateurishly, could use some cleaning up)

- Originally auto but manual gearbox, flywheel, manual pedal all come with shell

 

Aftermarket parts to go with car (make an offer):

Genuine Watanabe Rims (14" x 10.5" rears, 14 x 7" fronts) **like new condition** polished lip, centres primed for painting (will come with gold metallic paint I planned to use) Brand new BF Goodrich radials tyres to suit

- Rebuilt L28 (teared down, clean and re-sealed) N42 block, N42 head

- Mild upgrade camshaft 

- New clutch

- Manual gearbox

- Coilovers (cleaned up and re-painted)

- Camber adjustment plates

- Megasquirts ECU

- Megasquirts wiring harness

- MSD coilpacks

- Pacemaker extractors painted in ceramic black and heat wrapped

- WRX seats

- Gktech wheel spacers

- Short shifter kit

- Aftermarket fuel rail

- Bosch wideband AF sensor and innovate AF gauge

- Drilled & slotted rotors

 

I don't remember all the details for the parts, if someone shows genuine interest I can get details for you.

 

If no one is interested in the shell plus parts, I will sell of all parts individually.

 

Thanks for all the help along the way gents, great community on here and it's a shame to be moving on.

Jeff43's Hs30-00134 Restoration

Mon, 12/02/2018 - 16:15

Hi All,

 

I have noticed it has been fairly quiet on the site over the Christmas/newyear period so I thought it was about time I posted my project up.

 

I have owned this car since mid 2006 (nearly 10 years - seriously were did that go) and began work on it around Nov 2011. I have had a fair few 240/260 2 seaters in the past but this is the one that I chose to keep for the long term. I did have a total of 3 240's and 1 260 2 seater in the shed when my 2 daughters came on the scene. Reality kicked in pretty soon after the birth of my first daughter and the culling began ( you can't save them all). Being a 1970 240Z early build number with a matching number engine the choice was reasonably easy except for the slight ding in the front end.

The interior is in pretty good condition with the seats having been redone by the previous owner.

 So the plan was to fix the crash damage and get it driving. Well one thing led to another and with my mate Vorn getting into a full on resto with his 240Z (see his build here - http://www.viczcar.com/forum/topic/11151-vorns-920-gold-240z/ )  I was slowly but surely heading down the path of a full resto.

 

Nov 2011 I began in earnest by stripping the car down to a bare shell, geez thay come apart fast, pity they take so long to put back together.

Stay tuned for the next instalment.

 

Cheers Jeff
