Re: Anyone in NC? New 280Z Owner...

well, the gastank, fuel pump, fuel injectors and fuel filter, is going to be stopped up with varnish.. so you would need to have the injectors and gastank cleaned, and replace the fuel pump and fuel filter.. iam sure the oil would need to be changed... flush the cooling system, and replace every rubber hose...

and just about every thing in the brake and clutch system would probably need to be rebuilt, as the rubber seals in them are dry rotted.. those are just a few things you need to do.. the list goes on...
