New owner of 78 280z vaccum ?'s

I just bought a 78 280z 2+2. Runs good, but all vaccum lines are either gone or dry rotted. EGR valve not even working. My question is, were can I find diagrams
to put it together?

RE: New owner of 78 280z vaccum ?'s

There is only one source for your troubles... and that is the factory service manual. You can get a cd-rom version from www.ideal-z.com or a paper version from Dyment Dist. I do not have the number for Dyment handy... if you search the archives for dyment, you should find the number. I would also suggest that you buy the FI (fuel injection) tune up video from www.ztherapy.com It will explain how the FI system works and the maintance for it. The video is a perfect companion for the factory service manual.
Now for your problem... I doubt that your car "runs good" with most of the vac lines either missing or cracked! The engine will run like crap with any vacuum leaks!
