  1. Hi Rob, I have a 1976 260z . The distributor black wire goes to the distributor neg (-) side. The black/white wire goes to the Coil pos (+) side. There should be a second B/W and G/W that went to the resistor but if you have bypassed that they should be joined together. 260z RHD wiring..docx
  2. Congratulations Gavin and Maria from WA. Hope that you are all safe and well in these trying times. Life changes for the better now for you. (I just had a flashback to Brian in Fast and Furious taking the kid to school in the people mover). Regards David.
  3. Welcome to the Forum. 6K is a great price for a 2 seater. I also have the 1976 RS30 model. The carbs are the desired 240z Hitachi/SU models as opposed to the flat top original 260z carbs. I noticed that the rear carb has the top fitted 90 degrees clockwise. The little bump should face the air cleaners like the front carb. When realigning make sure the piston moves up and down freely. Good luck with the build and have fun. ( opps! Sorry guys, I thought that they looked like the Hitachi/SU carbs of the 240z. I stand corrected). David.
  4. 1: Yes, 2:Yes, 3: Yes, 4: Brake Booster, 5: Not sure. 6 and 7, flow through water to warm carbs,9Noone ever uses these). 8: usually to distributor vacuum cannister (Vacuum advance). Block spare off. 9: Vent to air cleaner back plate. There will be another one on the second carb fuel bowl. 10: PCV (Positive crankcase ventilation) connected to the front of the block below the headers. David
  5. Hello Craig, If you have the 2nd one available could I please have that one. Cheers David.
  6. Hi Guys, Just finished watching this video of "Iconic engines", Datsun "L" series. Thoroughly enjoyable and a bit of humour. I'm not sure if it has been posted before. David.
  7. Hi Guys, Having put up with a dicky starter motor for a while it was time to look for a new one. I have 3x 40 plus year old starters with issues and I was quoted an amount to fix them which was more than buying a new one. I ordered a gear reduction starter from one company but he cancelled the Ebay order saying that couriers would not pick up from his address because of the Covid-19 situation. I then ordered for another company which supplied me a nice starter which was smaller and lighter than the original. $140.00 plus $22.50 standard delivery from Thomastown in Victoria. I think it spins th
  8. I had a day off work today so the front panels and bonnet went back on the car and I hit the road to the office for cheesecake and coffee. The new ignition system ( MSD6AL and Hot Spark)is great and the engine is crisp. The brakes need work. From sitting so long, I may have a seized caliper piston or two. Scared myself at the first traffic lights. Over the weekend I will have to look at them. I'm pretty stoked though since I haven't had the car on the street for about 3 years. With the Covid-19 lockdowns and cutting back hours at work, I am enjoying working on the car again. Ok guys, Stay safe
  9. Hi Gav, The Schneider camshaft that I bought off you a couple of years ago had a oiler bar in the box. It needs a bit of work but you're welcome to have it back as a spare if you like. David.
  10. Well I finally got the MSD 6AL fitted on the weekend. I also removed and sorted out a sticky choke tube on the front SU carb. Now that I have a Hall Effect dizzy and the MSD ignition I can say the car starts easier and idles much better and sounds crisper. I haven't had it out on the road yet, but soon. Getting a bit crowded under the bonnet now.

    WTB choke cable

    Hello again, I would take the time to correctly have the carbs tuned instead of wasting time with choke cables. If the carbs are jetted correctly it should just take a couple of pumps to start the car. I ran triple Dellorto's on my engine years ago and had no trouble starting the car because I spent time with correct tuning. If this is something that you cannot do I would find someone local who has experience with triples. Good luck. David

    WTB choke cable

    Hi mate, You really don't need choke cables set up because the carbs have pump jets. Couple of pumps on the accelerator pedal and it should start. It will probably be a bit hesitant till it warms up a bit but better than fouling the plugs with the chokes on too long. Looks neater without the extra cables as well. David.
  13. Looks like a wide ratio according to the attached video.
  14. Today was a good day to get in the garage. I rebuilt a D609-56A distributor and installed a Hotspark ignition module with the recommended Beru Blue coil. This is a Hall effect module similar to Pertronic. With this system I can remove the ballast resistor. I only have to finish the wiring tomorrow and set the timing. This will replace the Crane XR700 that I had set up on another distributor. I have recently installed the 240z 3 screw twin carbs after giving them a good clean. So if all is good I may refit the front body panels and get it out on the street over the next couple of weeks. D
