  1. no steering stops, it is all in the rack jack it up at the front and put it on full lock and check clearance each side i think you will find it is off centre the only other thing it might be is a different rim offset on the front you said you had new tyres fitted, I know I cant run my rears on the front they hit the calipers
  2. Had the exact same problem.. I had to do this , the rack is probably centre but the tie rods are adjusted offset to correct the alignment, then the steering wheel has been removed and re-centred. You need to count lock to lock as you have done, then remove the steering wheel and refit it it so the orientation is correct, then take it in for a wheel alignment, note the steering wheel will be off centre but in the correct position.... after the alignment it will be straight and lock to lock correct.

  7. I am with Shannon's with all my cars, 2 club plate, 2 daily's and 2 bikes they are reasonable and you can agreed value insurance cover, I have my 260 at 25grand agreed value @$140p/m on all vehicles comprehensive cover +free windscreen every 12months per vehicle, I have changed all four screens over the years.. but with "limited use clause" on club cars and bikes. HTH
  8. I have just received my new 260 complete front panels "not genuine" from the UK it is very good quality quite expensive but I couldn't make them,, the s/h front I had was not worth mucking around with in the end.
  9. the covers came from Interior innovation many years ago, he requested a photo at the time and that's the photo I sent him, I don't know who this mob is I guess they bought him out maybe. I just found it bizarre to see my car pictured in a usa ebay site. I wonder if they will give me a discount on another set for my new car
  10. Nothing like seeing your own car in an advert on ebay in the usa. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1970-1978-Datsun-240Z-260Z-280Z-Leather-Replacement-Seat-Covers-w-Vertical-Seams/153143235746?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D53f113b2023045e7b03df155533fed6c%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D293323228911%26itm%3D153143235746%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A8658a0d6-3e37-11ea-b665-74dbd1803b62|parentrq%3Ad4b8cd3116f0ad313bdda817ff66f6c8|iid%3A1

    260 front

    Peter, cut and shut may not be the correct term to use, sorry bout that, I dont see a problem its only 18 inches of the front I want to replace not the whole front end. its pretty hard just to pack up a vehicle that doesn't run and drive 14 hrs to take it to a shop for a repair without knowing the cost of the repair, but I will give it some thought, I think that it is a bit too much for me to handle but I was prepared to have a go, couldn't make it any bloody worse.

    260 front

    yes,, hidden under all the shit was a really bad front end repair from a crash, for me easier to replace the front than to try and bash it out I am not a panel beater

    260 front

    wanted to buy front off 260 from about the wheels forward including rad support let me know if you have anything, I don't have the skills to repair it and would prefer just to cut and shut Regards Linton
