    Once the evaporator is removed, it's possible (with contortion, a small extension mirror and/or a small camera) to see the core, valve and hose fittings well enough to see where the leaks are, by the...

    Removing the evaporator was easy and made it easier to work in that area. My heater valve is all corroded and the hose connections leaked until I plugged the engine fittings. Need to replace the...

    McMaster-Carr

    These are what I used for the 1/4" and 5/16" fuel lines. Figured I'd need F.I. type clamps for the heftier USCG fire-resistant, ethanol-resistant fuel hoses. Bags of five. Only one...

    Fabric friction tape no good? Damn, I just bought some to tidy up the coil/distributor harness.

    How well does the insulation on the 40 year old wires hold up in the engine bay? Don't know but I'd...

    Floats are the same front and rear. The lid on the front carb has 2 mm longer "ears" and uses the longer float valve. The fuel level in the front bowl should be 2mm lower than the rear carb but you...

    "what is that small pipe that attachs to brake booster outlet?"

    That goes to the AT modulator. You need that for the AT to function properly. There's another short curved hose that connects the...

    Using the little fuel return line as the main fuel line sounds totally whack. Seems like it couldn't supply enough gas, on a grade at freeway speed for example. And it's so easy to bypass the...

    Had a leaky banjo until I polished both sides with 600 grit sandpaper. Also had to use the red composite washers, the old aluminum ones needed a crazy amount of torque to stop leaking.

    I use the key until it lands close to a node for a ballpark setting, then use the dwell meter on the dwell/tachometer or the digital timing light to fine tune it.

    IIRC, once I fried a fusible...

    Main thing for a DD is it's a Datsun. Datsun's from that era are known to last. But any car can be a DD. Main thing for me is it's a racer that beat way more expensive cars.

    The Z looks very nice, and when it's parked by the 510 you have your own classic car show.

    I expect Zed Head is on the right track, but does this happen whether the tank is empty or full? 280 fuel/vent plumbing is much different from 240 but I have often noticed fuel pressure fluctuations...
