  1. Hi All, I used to do my club reg through the JDM club run by Ashley from MSpares But he doesnt seem to be answering his phone Are there any other clubs that do the club reg permits for Z's? Thank you
  2. yes. agree. that's where i'll be putting it. note the FICD gear -more unobtanium. i wouldnt mind fabricating it, only if i could my hand on it. by the way. where the hell are you getting all these photos?
  3. right answer for the 260s, i think ( presume both pics are of 260z by looking at the extra brackets) so you can see in the 240, the drier is on the LEFT and on a vertical bracket. the only place that is possible is on the tower strut. but as you know its very close to the air filter, so it must be a very small unit placed very low on the tower. alterntively, it could be forward of the tower and placed low opposite the compressor cant believe it - a million photos of z on the net and not a single one of this setup anyway, i will post some pics soon. i've just about finished the evaporator housing
  4. on the basis that i ve never seen a 240 factory setup ever. i dont actually know. the parts diagram only shows the evaporator side and not the condenser or the drier. the firewall holes on the rhd 260s were on the LEFT side, so the hoses muse have been the left. ive seen photos of 260s with the factory drier mounted in front of the radiator, not on the sides of the engine bay with so many after market jobs on both 240/60 its hard to tell
  5. does anyone know where the dryer goes? on some pics on the net, the dryer is on a bracket just behind the strut tower and opposite the air cleaner. looks like there are two mounting holes there, but the dryer would be pretty close to the standard air cleaner on some others, its low just below the coil and opposite the compressor? anyone have any legit pics?
  6. does anyone have one or more of these?
  7. as i've seen discussed may times on the forum, there are no aus delivered 240s with the factory air since i'm making an in-dash system, i'd like to know if anyone knows where and how the drain pipe should work? the evap box sits directly above the tunnel and i can find any photos or drawing
  8. ended up going to a guy in moorabin, who welded it up. my welder was far too weak
  9. that would make sense, although it only takes max of 1mm. sounds like i'm off to a welding workshop ...
  10. based on my experience, the conclusion is that the ebay/zcardepot reproduction cylinders for 240 are made from a different alloy to the original and degrade much faster . my ones lasted 3 years and that's parked in a garage https://www.localsearch.com.au/profile/south-coast-brake-resleeving/southport-qld/TUxP charged $70 per wheel cylinder in stainless with the rubber seals
  11. i'm fabricating an A/C bracket and the specs to this welder say up to 12mm plate https://www.edisons.com.au/rossi-155amp-mig-arc-mag-gas-gasless-welder-dc-welding-machine-inverter-tool/?___store=default&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIucDprL-G8AIVQ0NgCh0zdAXpEAQYBCABEgJkcvD_BwE i'm not making much progress on even max setting on penetrating the 10mm plate ( using gasless 0.8 wire) 1.has anyone used of these welders for that purpose? 2. are there any pro welders on the forums in SE Melb that can do the weld? Thank you
  12. ok. the story is that i went to change shoes on my 'aug 71 plated z due a fluid leak ( more on that later). picked up a set from supercheap - bendix BS1339 had a compare to the old ones ( not really old, about 3 years old) and they look different see the phots. you can see the hole for the rattle pin is off by about 2 cm. went to the zcardepot site ( first photo) and sure enough the OEM shows match my old ones. states that it fits 240/260 are the same trawled the net and found these https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/New-PROTEX-Drum-Brake-Shoes-Rear-For-NISSAN-260Z-S30-2D-L-B-RWD-/122227897918 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/New-PROTEX-Brake-Shoes-Rear-For-NISSAN-240Z-S30-2D-Cpe-RWD/124063324500?hash=item1ce2c01954:g:JA4AAOSw1kxeL9Hm so sounds like the bendix catalogue is wrong?
  13. also, does anyone know how to plug the brakes lines while i'm getting these replaced? i know you can crimp the hoses with the vise grip, but is there a better way like this? https://www.brakehose.com.au/category_images/fluid-line-stopper-kit/
  14. while i was going thru the rear end looking for the diff clunks, noticed that brake fluid all over the rear wheel cylinder. got a new set from zcardepot about 3 years ago, so pretty cheesed about the quality anyways, i see that a replacement pair will cost me around $150-200 and I'm guessing that they all comes from the same generic factory in china . so, rather then go thru the same process again in 3 years, does anyone know who can resleeve the old ones in SS? thank you
  15. just went thru the whole rear end again and noticed that the right inner uv has a bit of slop. i replaced the whole set with new ones probably 2000 ks ago with ones from zcardepot so i'll replace that first and see if that's what it is
  16. i have a worrying clunking sound coming from my r180. no other probs - whining, leaks, etc can anyone recommend a diff guy and , just in case the diff is a goner, a source for crown/pinion/pin, etc? its a manual diff thanks in advance
  17. who sells the actual bushings and do they all need reaming first?

    and the black vynil tool bag, if you have one

    240 jack

    the short 40cm one
  20. yes, same ones. i think i just used the generic xmas tree plugs everywhere else they're definitely 240 only item, never seen them anywhere else ( not in 5mm size) are they disposable? suppose once you push thru the rod and lose it, goodbye to the whole clip
  21. you mean this for the strip? https://www.bunnings.com.au/goliath-5m-black-edge-trim_p4230125 looked for 'nissan clip' in vic on gumtree, nothing obvious is this the aftermarket one? https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/champion-champion-xmas-tree-clips---pp63-panel-pack/6462.html PS. is that the original luggage strap bracket? my one is flat
  22. will you sell the 40 cm jack ? what's the clip on cover for? is that for ser1 ?
  23. by the way, if any one buys trim from zcardepot, its for the later, longer type console . you can just make out the problem in the left lower part of the 2nd pic
  24. dont know what they're called 1. what part #, size are the plastic rivets that hold the plastic panel around the dome light? left photo 2. looks like there's a special rubber that cover the metal joint behind the seats that goes across the car. has a kinda l shape to it at the top. is there something from clark rubber that will fit?
