  1. 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 the engine quicker than the old starter. I'm stoked. If anyone is in the market for a new starter I would suggest that they look at these. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Starter-Motor-Nissan-240K-240Z-L24-2-4L-260C-260Z-L26-2-6L-280C-L28-2-8L-Petrol/282603946312?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 Happy motoring David
  2. 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 and remember you don't have to stay 1.5 metres away from your Datsun. Only your friends. David
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  7. Looks like a wide ratio according to the attached video.
  8. 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. David.
  9. Yes, I have delusions. Thanks for the reminder old buddy.

    Who supplies that front Bumper/spoiler style with the slots at the top. I like the shape.
  12. Because stainless steel can rust. Rub with fine steel wool to remove rust and coat with silicone on a rag. Redo occasionally to keep rust at bay.
  13. Hi Gavin, Could you please close off this thread at the end of the month (28/02/2019). If no-one seems interested, I will remove the parts from sale and look at finishing the build with a slight modification to up the compression ratio. Cheers David (Enzo).
  14. https://www.domain.com.au/20744-pacific-highway-johns-river-nsw-2443-2014946930 I was looking at NSW real estate and noticed halfway through a yellow Zed parked up behind the VW convertible at the indoor garage section. Out of my price range. Maybe with a lotto win though. David.
  15. How about a session at the Gym. OPPS!!!!!. Sorry.
