Re: 74 260Z for sale

Had one guy on Ratsun contact me, but he was in Florida. Bit too far to ship. I'm surprised there isn't more interest. Really it's very restorable or swap a V8 and have a hooligan-mobile to mob around in. I don't know. I suppose I may end up keeping it and doing that myself. That was the plan initia...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

So the three screw carbs were the problem. They look recently rebuilt, not sure what exactly is wrong, but the bird noise appeared again after I swapped the 4 screw set on, then re-installed the 3 screw set because the linkages were better and I thought I was just doing something wrong. The biggest ...

Re: 74 260Z for sale

Lol, I've seen way worse Datsuns. It's mostly surface rust besides that back deck. And even that you can get full replacement panels for it.

74 260Z for sale

Hey all, So I picked up this 260z car a bit ago from an old friend, couldn't pass it up. However, I have zero time for another project and it's just sitting under a car cover. Vehicle is complete, 4 speed, has flattop hitachis (yuck). It tried to fire throwing some gas in the intake. Car is decent, ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Fuck that! No EFI. I'm going to install the other set of 4 screw SUs I have and see if the issues return or get better. If that doesn't work, I may do a dual 32/36 setup with the SU adapters. Running out of time before Jethro Tull and Canby. May have to take the truck, dammit, noooooo! I want to dri...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Yep, vacuum gauge is steady. Next step is checking the intake with the boroscope, then removing the rear carb and seeing whats up. I'm also going to pull off the balance tube and check it.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Alright, re-cut the Grose jets to 6mm x 1.00 thread pitch. The stock Grose jets are 1/4 - 24, yes, not 20, not 28, but 24. A goofy fuck size if there ever was one. Good luck finding a tap for that on a Saturday! Bought a fresh die, just enough material to re-thread perfectly. So Grose jets are in. S...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

HOLY MOTHER FUCKER!!! I figured it out. Fucking balls! So on a Weber 32/36 which we all know and love, the needle and seat is a brass piece with a viton-tipped needle in the middle that hangs down to be actuated by the float. In the SU which I currently have, that needle and seat style is instead tw...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Alright ladies and gents, for those who don't know, gross jets ordered from Moss Motors are NOT the same thread pitch as the needle and seats found in the SU carbs, or at least the Datsun version. All my lids are 6x1 mm. The gross jets appear to be 1/4"x28 or something. Either way, it explains ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Alright, finally got the AFR gauge re-installed with a new sensor. It's working great. Have to do some top speed loading for fuel mixture, then I can set the needle height accordingly. Still having idle issues, but ordered some Grose jets today from Moss Motors. That should solve that I think, I'll ...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Depends. Have Sunday Easter/birthday brunch tomorrow, then looking at a house. We shall see. Maybe I'll charge the gopro and have Rose operate it. ;)

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Got the exhaust back on, want to re-weld one hanger, but other than that, Wynona is pretty much ready for road testing. Rose and I will probably take a drive tomorrow in her if the weather holds. It's Rose's birthday today, going to do wifey stuff all day. First order of business, walk the dogs!

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Hmm, nope, it's correct. Maybe I'll try adjusting the screw to have it hold more vacuum.

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Hood is back on finally. Removed all the air fuel ratio stuff, just had a bunch of temporary wires hooking it up. Figured I'd work on the exhaust first as I don't technically need the af gauge now that I have it pretty close. I can move the fuel adjustment a needle or two and go test it. I know I'm ...

That looks super sweet! I like the widening. Custom back glass and windshield is going to be spendy though.

The choke cable are running through the speedo cable grommet that was ripped wide open. Called Nissan, go figure, NLA.
