I'm helping a friend time his '83 280ZX, but I can't get it on the mark. It will only move to 20 or off the scale. When he brought the car over, it had a lot of the vacuum hoses disconnected or not even there, but I replaced them. Distributor cap, button is fine.

Thanks for any help!

sounds like the distrib.and or the oil pump removed at one time. when it was replaced it was probably a little off. the oil pump distr. can go in to mesh in several positions. perhaps the previous owner had it set @ 20 degrees as perhaps recommended in its specs. i know that was a problem with my 81 280 zx turbo.you may need to remove the oil pump to fix the problem. get the book before you do this and read about it there is a lot to remember if your not really familiar with the job. hope this helps. ps this is the first time i replied to anyone. hope im right ha ha good luck.
