1984 Z non-turbo

What kind of things should I check on a z that's been sitting in this little used car lot for about 2yr's?? I offered the guy 500bucks for it, it doesnt run, he said something is wrong with the fuel injectors. I figured I could get them replaced, from the recall. Should I have him put a battery in it and try to start it. I know a bit about them, but not engine wise totally...Thanks for anyone's help.

RE: 1984 Z non-turbo

is it in good solid shape? if so thats some thing to build on. also check the frame rails under the floor board where it bend upwards. check for bent frame rails in this area. maybe rust?

no replacement for displacement

Get the VIN from the car and call 1-800-nissan1 and see if the recall work has already been done before you give him the money.

also look for rust under the tool kit in the back and the spare tire well .

RE: 1984 Z non-turbo

How do you know that it has been there for 2 years? That's an awful long time for any used car lot to allow a car to sit and take up valuable space. Do they have a clear title for the car? Can you get someone to go with you to look the car over and under and inside out. If it is solid, you have about a thousand or more in parts alone. Get a magnet and go all over the body of the car to make sure that it is all metal and not just a lot of bondo, etc. Make sure that the doors close properly, the same for the hood and the hatch. Check it all out. And if you find out that the injector recall has not been done and everything else appears ok, have the used car lot guy put a battery in it. No, I don't think it would be smart to start it if it has been sitting for 2 years. There a few things that you have to do to an engine that has been sitting for that long. I would suggest that you get someone who has some know how with cars, real know how and not just a lot of bull, and have them guide you through this. It is possible that you have a golden opportunity or a headache in your future. Good luck.
