1980 280zx Fuse question

I realize that this is a very common problem, but i did a search for it and didn't come up with anything. I have a 280zx without a fuse cover (a common problem) and I'm trying to figure out a fule delivery problem. Can anybody tell me which fuse controls the fuel pump and what the oroper amperage for it is? Better yet, could someone take the cover off thier 1979-81 ZX and scan it in so that we can have a final answer to this FAQ? Thanks.

Plenty of rust, not much floor, but still a beautiful sight.

Get a real service manual for your car, it will have a picture of the fuse block lid in it. Courtesy Nissan 280ZX Service Manuals and CDs

There is no fuse for the fuel pump. However there are 2 fuel pump relays and the main EFI relay involved and there are fusible links that protect them.

If you have a "fuel delivery problem" post a detailed description of what is (or is not) going on. Looking for a fuse that does not exist will not help solve whatever problem is.

These two posts may help you understand a bit more:

1978 to 1981 Fuel Pump Control / Operation

Another Fuel Pressure / Volume Test.
