My fuel injected '76 280Z just started dumping fuel out the air intake. This is the coldest it has been here in Sacramento in 9 years. I found about a half cup of fuel in the air filter pan when I took the air filter out to use some starter fluid on the engine to get it started. Any ideas on what the problem is and how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

Two things I would check: 1-cold start valve; if it's stuck open it'll dump fuel in your intake manifold. 2-fuel regulator. Let me know what you find. Check your vacuum lines and see if you're getting fuel in them too.
