    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...

    Looking at NRG quick release steering wheels and wondering if a 280z steering hub and splines are the same as the 280zx. Everywhere I’ve looked I can’t find answers to, just seeing if anyone really knows.

    I just got my first car (just a daily) and I immediately wanted to start a project car. The 1981 Datsun 280zx has always been a dream project of mine. I want to do a complete rebuild piece by piece. What engines would fit in the engine bay? I want at least 400hp by the end of this build, however...

    So I just bought my 1983 280zx and I’m trying to diagnose my turn signal problem and I looked up under the dash where the timer flasher is and it’s missing a component directly beside it. It’s a little smaller in size and has 2 pins outs that connect to it. So my question is, what is it?
