    Headlights High Beams Always On

    Is this a 510? Are you running yellow Mercedes fog lights in place of your highbeams? I think there has been a documented concern in the past where the metal headlight housings from these Mercedes foglamps can create a ground path and cause the lights to stay on all the time. this is not likely your concern but it is a place to look.

    72 510 steering column diameter

    I got 38mm as well. 1969 510 on left and 73 240z on right. Both 38mm. I seem to recall 280ZX had a smaller diameter

  8. I think Hainz may be on to something. Confirm the driveline angles. If the differential pinion angle is out it could create vibration under acceleration. Edit, try searching for articles on setting the pinion angle: http://www.hotrodhotline.com/md/html/drive_shaft_harmonics.php

    Weird 69 510 Gas Tank Vent Setup

    Parts diagram for an early car is below. Edit - Depending on the engine you are using and your desire to run the evaporative emission equipment. you can connect the vent line from the tank to the evaporative control valve or an evap canister (assuming you instal one).

    '72 510 dome light

    Did you use an original type lamp. I recall that I ended up using a Sentra light with several electrical pins so I had to make some small wiring changes. On a related note, the original type lamp is also grounded by one of the attaching screws. The wiring diagram shows 2 wires going to the lamp. Power from the fuse block and a ground coming from the door switches. It looks like the light switch selects the ground circuit to the bulb. It either gets ground from the door switch or from the ground screw on the lamp assembly. See room lamp on the wiring diagram. The original 510 light is on the right side. The left is a late 1980s Sentra light
  13. It's been a little while since I took mine apart but I do remember drilling out the pin and removing the face cap to extract the key cylinder on my post 1969 510 (I think 1968 is removed by paper clip). you should be able to remove the key cylinder after the pin and cap are gone. The 240/260/280 assembly should be compatible with the column mounted 510s. I used a switch from a 280z (NOT a 280zx).

    Harmonic balancer for a naps z?

    It's been a while since I took these pictures but I do believe there is some rubber between the weight and the hub.
