  1. Hi Guys, Does anyone have any experience with the early 240Z internal fuse box with the long pig tails? I recently pulled my dashboard out to get reskinned, and while i was at it i replaced my old internal x with the long pigtail MSA fuse box (https://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/50-5011). I did label connectors as i took them all off, but i am a little confused with the 2 large White (BATT) connectors on the Fusebox. I didn't get a decent photo when i unplugged everything, but i am pretty sure that the old fuse box was hooked up with a single spade connector going into the loom (though this appears non-original/hacked up by PO, and i am not sure what colour the cable is.. i forgot to check) and the other large spade seems like it was only connected to a power cable for a CD stacker (with a dodgy small spade.. quality).. I also have the smaller White (i think..) cable connected to the fuse box with the standard bullet connection. Definitely doesn't match any of the electrical charts i can find online which show there should be 2 large White/Red cables going to these connections on the fuse box.. one to the Ammeter and the other to the Alternator I have connected the single spade up to the fuse box, and it did allow me to start the car (and the AMP meter works). I have also had a look for where the other white/red cable could be, but can only find it up higher in the loom with a simple Male/Female connector (which looks factory, and old.. so it seems standard). Can anyone help me out? i need to confirm if the second White/Red needs to be connected on these really early (low Vin 70's) cars, and if so where does it go? Here is the original fuse installed (sorry its upside down when i upload here..) Connections after removing fuse box and heater panel (the CD changer connection that i am 90% sure was connected to the other spade is that yellow cable on the left) MSA fuse connectors (i had to cut off the large white connectors to put on large female spade connectors to suit) and finally, the back of the dash showing the standard loom and connectors, and the White/Red male/female connector higher up in the dash Appreciate any help you guys can give.. i don't want to put it all back together to find that there is a loose high amp wire floating around somewhere in the dash to cause a fire or something Thanks Kent
  2. No worries, appreciate you taking the time to look for me!
  3. Don't suppose you have one of the mounting screws? i am missing one
  4. I am interested!, my 240z is one of the early ones which hopefully won't make too much difference (it needs some reinforcement)
  5. And installed, it looked like this.. (filters, carb's, engine, car not included :))
  6. Hi Guys, I have recently replaced the manifold and linkages on my car with a Mangoletsi kit, and were fitted to a running L24 with triple 40DCOE carbs. All parts used but in great condition. See the pictures below: Redline manifold for L series (looks like 12-3126 in the casting, which appears to fit 45DCOE too?), with hose connector for brake booster Triple weber linkage kit with metal ball ends + return springs, and a bag of spare bits 3 x Redline soft mount kit Should be a relatively bolt in affair (although you may need to modify your throttle rod from the linkages to the firewall linkages - i may have the old one still kicking around to include) After $400 + postage
  7. For reference (cause it is kind of cool to see, and i happened to have dug it out for g60 patrol)
  8. I will let you know this weekend!
  9. let me check on the 1st/2nd Feb As for cost, i have no idea.. $30? i am in Sydney, so postage shouldn't be too much.. but let me confirm i still have it first
  10. Hi Mate, How urgently do you need it? i am 80% sure i still have it, although i wont be able to check it as it would be in storage for a couple of weeks
  11. Hi guys, I am chasing an L28 block to use for stroking. After an N42 block, and i havnt seen any around for some time.. any leads on obe would be greatly appreciated! I have an F54 black at the moment, but after sonic testing, it's not going to get me out to where I want to go (almost perfect in terms of core shift though.. go figure!) Kent
  12. Hi guys, I pulled down an LD28 engine today for its crankshaft. Interesting (and messy) experience as it was the first diesel i have pulled apart. Weirdly it had a modified winged rear sump Is there anything extra from this motor that is worth keeping? I have seen mention of the intake and the block being used over in the US.. but not so much here Thanks guys
  13. Hi Sean, Put me down for 2 flat profile ones! It will be a good addition to the metal 50th anniversary badge you sent me! Do you have pics of the black vs white writing? Kent
