    Default Choke lever mount broken under console

    Anybody have any ingenious ways to fix this without replacing the console? '72 240Z, I've taken the ashtray out and slide the cover open to hold it steady with my hand for now. One of those plastic screw holders have broken.
    Thanks for any ideas.

    Go here and pay the price---
    Datsun 240Z 1972 73 Choke Cable Lever Mounting Bracket | eBay

    These are made by Art Singer ---a member here---and are the easiest permanent fix for your problem.

    I have a 73 Z I did this to and believe me it is worth every penny. Choke lever action--- once the cable is lubricated (do it while you have everything apart)-- is effortless--- smooth as silk!
    An added benefit is you can remove your console very quickly and easily anytime you need to without the choke cable mount in the stock mounting pins.
    I made one years ago, but Art's are very well made and it come complete with everything you need.

    I'm not saying NOT to buy Art's part. But when I had the problem I used ABS glue and fiberglass fabric to fix and reinforce the screw bosses that hold the choke bracket on. I have used those materials for numerous things around the interior and none of the repairs has failed yet.

    I bought Art's bracket for my 73 too. It's the perfect solution and I highly recommend it.

    Ill second that, its worth every penny. Additionally you don't need to remove the choke cable anymore if you ever pull your console out again, just the knob on the end. The feel of it being bolted down to a metal bracket is very reassuring.

    pre made bracket. The only thing that would make it better would be tek screws(self drilling/self tapping).
    things will only bother you if you let them.
