nismou20, thank you.

Next question, is there a way to really tighten the studs that hold the front turn signals to the fender? Or is there a better way to attach them?

There's a rubber or hard plastic piece that the glove box door arm slides in.

  • How do you remove it? If rubber, mine has hardened so it doesn't compress nor can I get anything under the edge.
  • Anyone found a replacement?
Thanks.

Never mind. Five seconds after posting, the answer came: Heat gun! Gently warmed, and I was able to pry it out. :smt004

Does any one know the bolt size to mount the transmission to trans mount?

Hoping for a quick but accurate weight of a full rear quarter panel please. It is well over 135 degrees in my walk up attic and I really do not want to drag a scale up there, uncrate one and then weigh it.

HELP

My ignition switch on my 67.5 had an issue so I purchased a 280zx ignition switch that I’ll install once I get it. But one of the connector wires got fried so I’m looking to replace it too. Anyone know what I should do? Do I need to buy a new harness that works for the 280zx?

Here are pics of my original switch...

If I'm not mistaken that is the starter motor solenoid wire.
I would just cut the old damaged connector off and re-crimp a new one.
The remainder of the wire looks OK from here.
One thing you can do to prevent a repeat of that wire overheating is to fit a START relay.
The ignition switch connects voltage to that wire when the switch is in the START position.
Add a relay to the feed so that the ignition switch operates the relay [low current circuit] and the relay energises the starter solenoid [high current circuit].
That will save the ignition switch contacts from abuse and put all the hard work on the relay contacts :)

Ok great thanks. I’ll look into the START relay too. I’m not sure what type of wiring was done before me so I’ll have to check it all.

The terminal on the starter wire is a GM Delphi Packard 56 series female blade. I have some but won't be home for another week from Japan. I buy the ones for 14-12 gauge wire.

Great thanks! I found a “kit” online that comes with a lot of pieces and sizes. I think I’ll just go with that just in case I need to fix more in the future. Thanks for the help.

They should be crimped with an open barrel crimper. You have a choice of buying on one from Vintage Connections/Spark Moto or somewhere else. You can use a crimper with mulriple sizes on each part. I would put just a dab of solder on in that case.

LHS of the engine bay between the washer reservoir and the air cleaner.
It is a 4 terminal can: the 3 terminal can above it is the horn relay :)
