  7. Hi Gav, It's worse than it looks, floors and rails are pretty good, but not much else that can be saved. But it's helping put another one on the road. Hi Andrew, Bonnet I'll be keeping for mine mate, sorry. Rear of roof where the hatch bolts to is rusty, but I'll send some pictures this week and you can PM me if you're still interested. Sorry Mick, don't have anything that'll help you.
  8. Hi Guys, I have a fairly rusty 2+2 that I'm scavenging some parts off. Just wondering if there is any interest in specific metal cuts that bus restorers are looking for before the shell gets scrapped completely. Sills and doglegs are useless, ask about specific pieces and I'll check for you. Also have a pair of front seats for sale, drivers side has rips but still very save-able - $400 Air conditioning Compressor, bracket, lines, receiver dryer, and condenser - $550 for the lot of that. Parts Sold: Bumpers and grill Rear beaver panel grommets Front indicator housings and lenses Located NSW 2769.

    For sale is my bus, purchased off Ben Ellis (Otomoto) last year in a state of slight neglect, but have spent countless hours working on it myself and also by Stewart Wilkins Motorsport. Big change in circumstances for me will not see the car get the attention it deserves. 1975 Datsun 260z 2+2 L28 N42/N42 Combo 240z Round top carb (3 screw) 5 speed manual Sunroof (does not leak) Since my ownership I've had the following work done by Stewart Wilkins Motorsport, receipts will be provided. Full overhaul on the twin SU's. Reconditioned brake booster. Fix door locking issue. Fix indicator stalk issue. New Battery. I've done a fair bit of work myself with the electrical issues in and around the car. Added relays to the headlight circuit as per wiring diagrams from here. Takes a pretty big load off the cars electrical system. Oil/Filter and plugs have been changed very recently (<1000kms) Replaced speedometer cable. Replaced speedometer/odometer gauge with a working unit. Re-fitted the head-unit that was previously removed. (Have sourced a genuine 260z unit, not sure if in working condition) Replaced battery negative cable (old one was rooted) Painted rear garnish and a few other bits and pieces. Interior is in reasonable condition, dash has been recovered at some stage, so no cracks but has a small bubble on top of the gauges. Body is in pretty good nick, it's been painted sometime recently and there's a few imperfections from that. Top of passenger door and a bit on the bottom of radiator support seem like the biggest culprits to me. Rear hatch slam panel seems pretty solid. Motor and gearbox are solid, although there is a small oil leak from the sump. (I've purchased the gasket, haven't had time to install it) For people that are worried about it's reliability, I've driven the car daily since I've bought it. Couple of pictures: Please note: Nardi steering wheel pictured is not included in the sale as it was a birthday present for me from a couple of good friends. NSW number plates will go with the car along with the genuine Watanabe wheels. Price: $15000 Location: The Ponds NSW 2769. Contact: Please PM if you'd like to know more or arrange a viewing.
  13. Checked the vent hose, not leaking. The fumes I'm complaining about are exhaust fumes, only happens after hard acceleration when near full tank. Doesn't happen below half tank. Think my main issue here is that the car is RUNNING noticeably richer on a full tank of petrol, fumes are a secondary issue. Hoping someone can shed light on why it'd only run rich when it's got a full tank of petrol. Cheers.
  14. Don't think it's the vent hose as the fumes are not constant, it's only after you've been flogging it. It's running an electric pump near the tank, not mechanical.
  15. Hi guys, been having a few troubles with getting the car to run right ever since I got it. It's a 2+2 with an L28 that's been converted to carb. I've noticed only recently (last two fill ups) car runs extremely rich after it's been filled up and it gradually gets better as the tank level keeps dropping. I noticed this due to the fact that the fuel smell inside the cabin when driving gets noticeably higher/unbearable right after filling up. Does this sound like a faulty fuel pump or a pressure issue? I'd be interested in putting a fuel pressure regulator in with a guage to get a better idea as to what's happening. What regulators are people using and where do you buy them from? Cheers.
