    Hi, I’m restoring a 75’ 280z. Finally got the engine in and running, but after starting the engine will not turn off unless I pull the coil plug from the distributor. I even pulled the ignition connector and the coil still has power whenever the batter is connected. Would a bad starter relay...

    Hello. My stock fuel pump on my 77 280z is dead. There are some threads on here about aftermarket pumps but they don't really line out the details of the pumps. A lot of folks have used the MSD2225. The web says "Flows 43 gph (282 lb./hr.) gasoline @ 40 psi". Is everyone putting it back in...

    My 280zx has a high idle issue since I bought it, fixed several vacuum leaks, replaced the AAC, replaced the intake/exhaust gasket, injectors, inline fuel filter, fuel pump, most of the rubber soft fuel lines.

    Had some troubles with starting and idle on my 78 280z. While troubleshooting, I pulled the vacuum tube off the fuel pressure regulator and it started spurting fuel out. Initially I thought "great! easy part to swap out", until I found out they're impossible to find for a 78. Looking around the...

    I received a rebuilt E12-80 distributer from California Datsun and hooked it up to my 75 280z 4 speed that has FI. From my research it was suppose to be a simple installation. It fits just like the original and all I had to do was take the plate off the original(2 point) distributer. I did not...
