I have an '83 280 ZX Turbo and it won't start.
I have replaced the power transistor coil spark plugs and wires distributor cap and rotor.
I also had the brain check out and it is fine.
I changed all of the vacuum lines in hopes that it would be a vacuum leak.

I don't know where else to turn
can someone please help

Anthony, it sounds like you were chasing a spark problem in the first part of your post. If it doesn't have any spark, you may be due for a distributor. Call friday if you would like. Joe

Anthony,
Is this a Z you just bought and can't get it going, or did you go out to it one day and it just wouldn't start anymore?
I am guessing that it cranks - but won't start - in that case
- check the connections on the cylinder head temp sensor
- double check all those small lines coming from the air flow meter
Hope you get it running - I have one just like it.
