    72 240z and a 72 521

    Turn signal switch

    Oh man, I forgot to change that. I have a 72 521.

    Turn signal switch

    I’m not sure they’re the same. It was more a guess/question for the forum.

    Turn signal switch

    If it’s not one thing it’s another. My slider thing that makes contacts in the turn signal switch is broken/decayed. The backer board that the 3 wires are soldered to is cracking apart. Trying to decide what my options are to fix it. The general consensus says to replace the whole assembly. Anyone have a switch or alternative? 510 the same?

    Ended up replacing the 2 condensers for 13 bucks, and away I went.

    Oh it's started now. I took out both bolts in an attempt to mess with it until it started. I just have no way to secure it in its spot because both bolts can't go back in.

    Can you tell me what I did wrong here? Truck wouldn't start in the range that the timing plate allowed. Do I have the plate on upside down? Wrong pedestal? https://www.flickr.com/gp/78177498@N05/6d6562 https://www.flickr.com/gp/78177498@N05/YK930R

    So just snag a duralast coil from Autozone? Or is the junkyard Nissan OEM better?

    Ended up with a matchbox dizzy in a trade. Tossing it on tomorrow if it's not dumping rain.

    So I was going to ask what to call that part, but randomly stumbled on it. Which ignition condenser is which? Or are they interchangeable? There's a JA500 and a JA503

    Not to throw more parts at a problem, I have an incoming matchbox dizzy lined up from a trade but it's used and may not work (seems unlikely) I need to check the gap, and replace that frayed wire on the inside of the cap.

    Backfiring out the exhaust.

    I just swapped the fuel filter because it was cheap and had a bit of junk in it. There's a bit of fraying on one of the braided dealios inside the distributor. Related? I don't know https://flic.kr/p/R4qmdh

    So first it's a 72 521 with a stock L16 32/36 and original distributor. Driving along just fine then it'll fall on it's face like it has no spark, let out a backfire, I pull over, and it keeps idling. Soon as I try to drive away, it does the same thing over and over. Anyone have something like this happen? I can't seem to replicate it on demand just inconveniently in traffic.

    How much can you tow and haul??

    I think it's a matter of could you vs should you It'll probably be fine, or it won't. You'd better be on your a-game if a "won't" starts happening

    Slow and yella'

    I really don't know the history of this truck. It supposedly sat for 15 years in a shop/garage. No 3-point belts.
