    Default Desparate to find a 240z fuel tank

    I discovered that the previous owner of my 1972 240Z replaced the gas tank with the wrong one,and am in need of the original . Does anyone have any ideas ,or better still, one for sale ?

    I've got a spare from a '73, but it's in Seattle.
    Shipping alone would probably cost more than sourcing one locally, however.

    I sent a PM to Joe Travis (GeoJoe). He can put you in touch with John Williams. I'm guessing John has several.

    I found a fuel tank and picked it up from a delightful man called Tom in Smyrna ;
    now I have to get it to Sims for a flush . However, now we are into hoses !
    And I may need help locating some of those.
    Does anyone know of anyone who has a Datsun 240Z Super Samuri in the US ?
    I used to have one in the UK that I never should have sold 35-40 yrs ago. And I am on the lookout again.

    For the filler hose, get it from a Nissan dealer. I don't have the part number handy, but it's still in the system.
    Some of the vent hoses are NLA. You'll need some fuel/oil grade hose to replace those.

    Look at my website on Z cars to find a bunch of helpful links.
