#1511492 What do you use to clean your old, rusty, gunky gas tank?

Posted by zed1 on Yesterday, 07:59 AM

A point in coating the interior of the tank:

 

If the tank is not completely clean and free of impurities and rust, the coating will not affix to the metal and will detach.  It will then be pulled into the fuel line, blocking the fuel filter.  In some instances, the coating material will clog the fuel pump and/or carburetor.

#1503636 Air cleaner bracket

Posted by zed1 on 16 July 2017 - 11:41 AM

I purchased from a Japanese seller the rear air cleaner bracket

One side of the bracket has both light blue and dark blue paint.  Is it probable that as the engine went down the production line the bracket was installed and partially painted to match the dark blue engine block, which masking the lighter blue of the air cleaner?

 

It would be great if someone on the forum could check their bracket for a similar paint scheme.

Thanks,

Keith

Originals are chromed steel, aftermarket are aluminum.  Both have advantages and disadvantages.

Always contact a Nissan dealer first, many parts are still available for the 240Z. Be wary of used electrical parts, oftentimes the only way to properly test them is to install them on a running vehicle.

The holes on my rear bumperette are round (verses the square holes I have seen on other bumperettes).

All the rubber cushions I have seen have the square plug mounting point.

Has anyone found a rubber cushion with a round plug?

Thanks,
Keith
