  1. Saw this on Facebook if anybody is interested.
  2. 1971 model in SA for $35k https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/1971-datsun-240z-manual/SSE-AD-6301183
  3. No Gav I bought it off John from Melbourne zedls1 abit over 3 years ago. Yeah throttle bodies would be the best but I would consider a top half Plazmaman ffp with say 100mm throttle body ? I’m also not a fan of the cross over intake especially over some very hot extractors.
  4. Well back in July last year my oil pump died which forced me to do a rebuild. After discussions with the original builder of my Zed Mr. Steven Davis, he offered to rebuild my engine for Nil $ yes no labour costs which let me spend a bit more on parts ( 3.2 spool stroker crank ouch ) So to date. Spool 3.2 Stroker Crank, 91mm stroke Rb26 Forged Ross pistons 86.5mm machined down to produce 10.9=1 ratio ARP bolts throughout. New oil pump, water pump, timing belt etc. Redesign of the oil flow from sump to pump New Exedy heavy duty clutch Exsisting, RB25DE VVT Head ported and polished, Tomei pon cams 256 Standard Rb25 exhaust manifold 2.5 inch pipe Had it tuned December last year with average results, power dropped of at around 5200rpm, struggling to breath. Today I pick up my Zed after having some extractors and exhaust fabricated then a retune with my old Kalmaker engine management with an increase of 20%kw and 16% torque. Sounds great and pulls hard from go to a bit over 6000rpm Now I need to choose between rb26 throttle bodies or a ffp with larger throttle body to get the most out of it, oh and maybe another ecu. 161kw and 403nm, Dyno sheet compares New exhaust in red and old in blue. All parts, fabrication and tuning has just nudged into the double figures $.
  5. Here is a YouTube video of the day. Nice white Zed Dave, How come Paul is co-pilot, I don’t remember you being the quite shy type.
  6. I’ll be heading down and camping on site as well as joining in on the car show and hopefully parade lap around Bathurst, there will be activities, drives through out the week from Wed 27th Nov. to Sun 1st Dec.

  8. Yeah I’m at Red Head ( Hallidays Point ) 10 minutes North of Forster
  9. Welcome to the Midnorth Coast. Ive been up here ( Red Head ) for 12 months now and haven’t seen another Zed, so take your time but hurry up and get it on the road.
  10. Maybe you need to test drive a fellow Sydney siders Z to compare ? Sorry I would but I’m 3 1/2 hours away.
  11. This also on Facebook. Nissan-Datsun Classifieds Australia page.
  12. Be quick it’s on Facebook 240z/260z s30 owners Australia page.
  13. 1973 240Z Auto Survivor. This is not my car, I met the owner Terry approx 3 years ago when I lived on the NSW Central Coast, I looked over his car as we chatted and exchange contact details. Terry contacted me the other day advising me that he wanted to sell the 240z but had very limited computer skills and No mobile phone and definitely doesn’t want low ballers and tire kickers so I offered to advertise on this site. I now live 3 hrs north of the Central Coast and unable to take detailed pictures or inspect the car to a greater extent so if your keen for more info you will have to PM me and I’ll pass on his home phone number. This car is a survivor, never restored, matching numbers and original, it has had some paint touched up around 1985 and still looks good. When I inspected it years ago the body appeared to be in good shape with no signs of rust. The Black interior looked complete and in good condition for its age. Terry purchased it in 1985 as the third owner, it has been garaged since and regularly driven as Terry has a trip he does almost every weekend for approximately 20ks , he has told me that its Greased and Oiled yearly and by all reports the car drives very well. Jan 1973 build VIN HS 30102291 Original 125k miles Price $55,000
  14. Hey Elyas, It’s a good start to ask on this forum as I was looking for close to 12 months prior to posting a Wanted ad here 2 years ago and within a few hours I had 3 to choose from. I was also after a restored, turn key RB powered 2 seater. Something will turn up and I believe your budget will get you what you want.
