Randoms 240Z

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody.

 

this is my 1972 Datsun 240z. Its relatively stock running a L28 with twin SU's. Rolling on Watababes 16x8 0 and 16x8.5 -6.

There isnt much planned at the moment in terms of performance other than a full exhaust system. Possibly going injected carbs with mild cams and small head work done as well. But thats when i have more money saved up.

 

i do post pictures on instagram (@randommmtine)

 

I dont know what what else to say.

 

I did happen to see a lot of Zeds last weekend at the Brisbane Samios C&C but didnt get to say hello.

 

Austin :)

Whats still to come:

- Refit recoed Brake booster thats been giving me trouble since the start!!!!!!! which i will do tonight. no more over fueling and expensive drives.

- Recaro Fish nets that need some loving then fit in.

- Will be on Equip 40s in a couple of days 15x7.5 -12

Hello Austin,

Nice looking car!

 

I noticed that the brake master cylinder reservoirs are in the wrong location.

Early 240Z's (1970 TO AUG 1971 - according to USA supplier http://www.new-datsun-parts.com/datsun-240Z-parts-brakes.html) had a master cylinder that looked like this;

46010-e4602-240z-brake-master-cylinder.j

 

And later cars were fitted with this type;

Note that in both cases, the larger reservoir is for the front brakes.
