If you want I can ask a friend if he has new jets for it, I do believe he has them

Would be nice if you could check yes :)
Send me a PM if he has carb-parts in his inventory.
Does he have other parts in stock as well?

Is it easy to find parts there,in Norway?

Not at all.
I don't think there is anything available here.
I have heard roumors of private persons having bought some amount of parts back in the day when the dealerships stopped keeping N600 parts in stock, but I don't know of anyone.

I get all my parts from abroad, mostly e-bay from the states, but also some from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany etc.

Some more progress.
Fun car to work with! :D
So far things have been straight forward and not complicated.
Accessability to bolts and such has also been good considering the car being so small.

For the most part the various components look good, but corrosion has done its job some places.
It seems I most probably need to source some new front blinkers.

...and that little engine is soooo cute! :P

I will check , but I am pretty sure he´s got them.
He´s got a lot of parts for our cars , and also some for the Z and S series,the Z is known as the coupé in the US. :)
As for the pictures on the other forum, you do not have to register to see them, but you will have to click each photo to be able to see it , so it takes longer. :oops:

I really like the front bumper on this N600. The uprights placed on the outer part of the bumper. It has a very clean look. I hope you keep it that way when you are finished.

I have the man looking for your carb jets, he does say he´s got them, and also has many other spare parts, for carbs and all the rest, many new parts, others used.
The front indicator lights for example.
You are doing good work on the car and are really very lucky to have such a good base to start from,there is very little rust.
Here is a pic of what my car looked like... :cry:

The carpets are quite nasty...
I think I will have to make some new ones.
At least the small sections covering the front wheelarches.

Also, for those of you who were curious of the shifter console.
Here are a couple of pics.

The carpets are not in great shape but they are complete and in one piece so it will not be so hard to make new ones, you can use the old set of carpets has templates. :tu:
Has for the console and shifter,I have exactly the same in my car, mike93hatch was looking for one for his car, I found one for him . :mrgreen:

The chromed ring that I am holding is a NOS original part (am buying one for myself)

This is the shifter mechanism, it is different from the dash mounted version. :)

the upper and lower mounting brackets are also NOS original parts. :shock:
One thing that is different in my car, and most of those I have seen here, is the ignition key, mine is dash mounted on the right hand side of the steering (the hole for it is plugged in yours), and it does not lock the steering column :(

I'm pretty sure only the US cars had the steering column lock, my UK Z and N both have dash mounted ignition switches and no column lock.

Would love your shifter console shifter for my N but i need to get too many parts to make it work. I've found the console but not the shifter or brackets to fit the console.

Keep up the good work. Hope to have some pics of my N soon, my friend is doing the bodywork on mine, the car is stripped just waiting on the welder to replace the panels and then repaint.

Let me know if you get a carpet set made up as i might also want one (albeit it with a RHS foot pad)

Had to move the car to the other side of my garage.
Could always push the car around by hand, but I found it much more enjoyable to try and drive it around a bit :)

After that I drained and dropped the fuel tank.
Luckily the tank has been completely full of fuel during all these years, so I'm not worried about internal rust.
The fuel coming out was almost black though.

I had the front of the car up on jackstands preparing to drop the engine and sub-frame.
Seems that I accidently hit the center of gravity with the stands.
Anyway, this shows just how light these cars are :P

After I was done playing I dropped the big lump.
Though I think I should get a extra set of hands when its time to put this thing back in an painted engine bay...

There is always that one guy who manages to find those special parts or rare impossible to find bits for cars that were made over 30 years ago.

Good on you sir, can't wait to see this finished.

I'm at a pretty boring stage of the project.
All those little fiddly things that has to be carefully removed from the body (and properly labeled and stored).
After a few hours of work it barely shows on the car, so the motivation is not as good as when handling the bigger parts.

But brighter days will come for sure :)

Here are the pictures of the carb parts that you needed,it took some time because the man is always very busy there is a picture of a gasket that the man says is always best to change when you open the top of the carb(to ensure proper seal ??)

OK.
I just took the pictures but did not ask the price .
It is a very small package,so it should be cheap to send to you ,and these are cheap parts for sure.
I have seen that you need the front indicator lights and the man also has those, brand new,and the rear lights as well, I will ask if he lets me take pictures of these also. 8)
