    I'm doing a 2jz( with a cd009 tranny) swap to my 1971 240z and I'm at the point where I'm looking into how to get my driveshaft to work. I thought ill use the old driveshaft and buy a cd009 input shaft, then of course the last step is to get the yoke, but I can't find one that fits both the...

    Hi! I have a -73 240z with a clunk in the rear left. I figured it was the U-joints since I could turn the half shaft a little. However, the U-joints in the half shaft turned out to be perfectly fine. It is instead freely moving further in, against the diff connection AND out at the hub axle...

    Hi Guys and Gals, I've tinkered a bit with 240Z about 20 years ago and recently my father gave me his 1971 Datsun 240Z that he has been "restoring" since 1996. The car is in terrible shape and I need to start over in the restoration process. Looking for tips on the steps to go through to...

    Hey all! During I have a last production month 240z that I am currently restoring. Here are the pictures of the thermostat housing. As you can see there is some kind of sensor at the top of it. Does anyone know what sensor it is? One of the wires broke off, so I need to replace it. When I...

    Hi everyone. I'm looking for some opinions as to weather or not this 240Z is worth the trouble (or even possible). With prices skyrocketing in just the last 5 years I know I need to get my piece of the pie now while the gettin is good and before all the attainable ones are gone...

    Hey guys, I'm new to the Z scene and I really like the 280zx. I was wondering how much hp this block can handle without serious modification. While I do plan on using a forced induction system, I don't plan to use a lot of boost. I want to build the car to at least keep up with my buddy's 370z...

    Howdy everyone, Me and my father recently got a 71 240z with about 70k miles which is running and driving. However, we do plan on doing an LS swap, so we don't have much need for it. I was wondering about how much I should expect the transmission and motor to sell for? If anyone also happens...

    So my 280z rear diff is pretty much toast. I'm looking at a 240z diff to replace it. Does the 240z diff fit the 280z? (Is it bolt on) If not, how difficult would it be to make it fit. Thanks.
