    • I'm using the R200 longnose setup with a standard mount and cross member; the only difference is the polyurethane bushes in the moustache bar. I can't adjust anything in the diff setup without modification. I wonder if my engine mounts are stuffed, I haven't checked them thoroughly so I'll check that next. Nice idea about raising the engine mounts, if mounts are stuffed that could be the reason why it's out of whack... thanks for the advice! I've replaced the original gearbox mount using this https://au.gktech.com/polyurethane-gearbox-mount Hopefully I can get the angle I need by spacing the engine/gearbox.  Marc.
    • https://www.caradvice.com.au/819815/million-dollar-datsun-240z/?utm_source=Nine-Front-Page&utm_medium=Referral&ca_rd=route   Just when you thought Datsun 240Zs were getting expensive, a buyer in Japan has raised the bar to a whole new level. 690 SHARES       A buyer in Japan has paid a record AUD$1.17 million for a rare 1970s Datsun. The hammer went down on the 1970 Nissan Fairlady Z432R in Tokyo last weekend and the selling price made it one of the most expensive Japanese cars ever sold. Known as the Nissan Fairlady Z in Japan, and Datsun 240Z in other markets including Australia, the Z432R is the one that gets Japanese classic car enthusiasts hearts racing. With only 30 to 50 estimated to have been produced, it makes it even rarer than the 420-run production of the Fairlady Z432. Both variants were powered by the same 118kW/177Nm Nissan GT-R S20 inline six-cylinder engine; the first GT-R engine made. But, what sets the Z432R apart? It was built for racing, hence the ‘R’ in its name. It featured thinner body panels, a fibreglass bonnet, and acrylic side and rear windows, helping to reduce its weight by 100-kilograms, making its total weight around 970kg. It also had a 100-litre fuel tank installed for endurance racing, which was 40L more than the standard car. BH Auction doesn’t stipulate if the car, with chassis number PS30-00289, is in original condition or has been restored, but with its odometer reading 98,040 kilometres, you could assume it’s been kept in its original pristine condition. At that same auction, the Z432R outsold a 2006 Porsche Carrera GT at over AUD$723,547, and a 1963 Ferrari 250GTE 2 + 2 Series 3 for AUD$593,300. One of the most desirable Japanese cars, the gorgeous Toyota 2000GT, now has some competition; the last 2000GT that was auctioned was a prototype in September last year and sold for AUD$1.19 million.
    • Hi, I'm currently hunting a matching set of the interior black diamond vinyl to suite a late model 76, 260z coupe. I am unable to find anywhere currently producing these in Australia or anyone that has these for sale.  I'm happy to purchase either new or secondhand, as long as it is in reasonable condition.  Preferably if you have the matching pieces for the rear strut towers that would be ideal.  I'm located in Melbourne however more than happy to arrange shipping. Please feel free to PM me pictures and prices. Pictures below are as an example of what I am looking for. Thanks guys 
    • This IS an Australian based forum... And if no one can help you here, maybe try some of the US based L-series Bookface pages: https://www.facebook.com/groups/995586513795146/ Edit/ It'll be the same as a L28 Petrol crankshaft pully, so I doubt you'll have trouble finding one...
