Wrecking Yard Report

Recommended Posts

I was in there yesterday and saw this from the back and didn't give it a closer look, thought it was a 4/Runner. Back today and had a closer look. Very intersting. Oh and it's out in the yard now getting picked over.

 

His oics he texted me

Another early-production (August 1979) 2nd generation 200SX just arrived at Stockton Pick-n-Pull https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/RNDkKMT7ckPUjNbiOUtGSdQdA

This one is in slightly better condition than the notchback that was in Redding at the end of last year, though it's still rough. I got all the wheel rims, the grill, the front domelight console, the oil dipstick, and the windshield washer reservior/squirter in case the person who wanted one back in November is still looking.  Otherwise, it's all still there.  I neglected to take any photos of the back, but the tail-lights are all complete.  I probably won't be going to Stockton again soon, so anyone who wants anything from this car had better go themselves or put in a parts request on the website within the next month or two. Stockton seems to be one of the busier, more high turnover P&P yards I've visited so far, so I'm sure this beauty won't be there long. Save what can be saved now before she's turned into beer cans. I really wish I could pull this engine like I did the one in Redding, but it was a big enough hassle getting that one across town and finding space for it. No way I could secure this one for a 200-mile trip, and if I did I'd get one hell of a lecture when I got home with it.

Damn! that’s my car to a Tee.

 

Did it have the louvers on the back window too? I’d pick the snot out of it if I wasn’t 8 hours away.

 

Wish I’d known you were going, I’d would have give you a list!

 

And yes I want the washer tank & bottle.

 

Pm’d you.

No louvers on the back, but please find a way to come pick the snot out of it.  It would be a tragedy for this old girl to go into the crusher as more than a shell.  As for the pump, I Pm'd you back.

I can't tell from the pics - is the rear axle still there? I used the rear axle parts to upgrade my old 710 to rear discs - could be useful to someone else with a 710.

If that has fuel injection then it might be one of the engines with injection usable on the L-series. Although you would need to get a workable intake manifold as well.

I Think all the 200SXs from the 1980 model year on used fuel injection.

True, but if youre installing it on a different head and block you don't want one that relies on a crank angle sensor. I think the early type has the similar setup to the 280ZX.

Ok, now that I've had a chance to go get my parts, I will let you know about a couple Z-cars in the northwest.

 

Arlington Pick n Pull - 1977 280Z 2+2 . L28, 4-speed manual. lotta rust

 

Portland south Pick n Pull 1977 280Z coupe. Manual transmission (didn't check) a lot missing like it was parted out prior to the wrecking yard.

Did you grab the wheels off of either?

 

No. The cars themselves didn't have wheels where they were parked in the yard.

I re-visited the blue 1980 200SX in Stockton P&P again this last weekend in the 106-degree heat. Here's what she looks like now

I took the bumper off to get at the brightwork for one of our other Ratsun citizens, and of course the grill was one of my prizes on the last visit.

Notice the perfect set of tail-lights.  I wish someone would grab them.

I think the dent in the left rear happened after she got to the junkyard

I think someone's been in here since my last visit...

..maybe trying for the transmission? Note the detached speedo cable.  Also, though you cant see it from this angle, the front engine heat shield was partly detached and hanging.  Oddly enough, someone sawed a section of exhaust pipe out just forward of the muffler. Can't figure out why.

Don't know how this plate got so chewed up.

Someone slipped that shifter knob from another car on since my last visit. Part of the reason I think they were interested in the tranny

Not bad

I think I mentioned last time that the interior was plain vinyl. I was wrong; it's the same fancy checkerboard velour as the Redding car was -not that it matters, since it's in the same rotten and shredded condition.

 

I totally forgot to mention this 78 240Z last time: 

 

28122964947_53d0d466e0.jpg20180623_150848 by emanistan, on Flickr

 

It's sparked quite a feeding frenzy.

Frankly I'm surprised there are as many good parts left as there are.

Need an engine?

 

...or a slightly used Zap Xebra with a parcel shelf covered in mouse droppings?

 

42941386582_c2440e66ec.jpg20180623_153707 by emanistan, on Flickr

 

Seriously, it would make a fun project if I had the room for it.

That 200 sx is liftback, there's another style. It has a trunk.

Yep, back around New Years I extracted an engine from a notchback version in Redding.

They're eye-catching, but not that rare. You can get one in much better condition for next to nothing. They only went about 20 miles between charges (unless you had to really strain the engine by doing something like climbing a hill), and the batteries were almost as expensive as the rest of the car when they needed replacing....and all that was assuming the car worked as it was supposed to, which many of them didn't: trusty Chinese technology. Still, it would make a neat foundation for a Mustie1 type project.

First year (1979) 210 goon just arrived at Carson City NV Pick & Pull:  https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/RNDj0OMcI4ZpXuQYoFjmVr3aS

 

1976 620 just arrived in Redding: https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/RNDI1RQNTCdhWk4xIb26qLE6j

 

Is anyone planning on going to Carson city? If the thing still has a complete A14 engine, I need a set of hoist hooks.

...and if anyone does stop by Carson City, could they nab the alternator bracket that bolts onto the A14 block too? It's missing on my F10.

Two 720 trucks just went out into the yard at Sheerwood Oregon Pick n Pull.

Both on row 34

 

Go pull those 5-speeds! (if they have 5-speeds)

The front bumper and body look straight on this 'red' one.
