Datsun 240z

For a number of years I had a 1973 Datsun 240z, and a 1978 280z 2+2 parts car. Here you will find some of the posts and videos from those two cars.

Project 240Z Update for July 8th 2006

Well, it's been nearly a month since I last worked on the 240Z, had a few events in there, July 4th, and various other activities keeping me away from the car, but mostly it was just me being lazy.

So today I spent a couple hours out in the garage wrenching. I got just about everything left that needs to be disconnected to pull the motor disconnected. Pulled the rusty exhaust out from under the car and threw it into my junk pile outside.

Here's what I know I have left to do to pull the motor/tranny.

1. Disconnect the shaft from the transmission.

2. Put the mounts for the hooks from the 83 motor onto the 73 motor.

3. Disconnect the transmission mount

4. Disconnect the engine mounts and lift it out.

Hopefully I can get that done next weekend!
