My Z 280 1978 car ran great for about 600 miles then it stopped turning over. It cranks but won't kick in. I was told that the car has a problem with no electricity going to the fuel pump....but is there a way around that to make it start

Look under carpet

Dan,
The leads from your fuel pump connect into the main wiring harness under the carpet right behind your passenger seat. Pull the bullet connectors apart, clewan them thoroughly, coat them with dielectric grease and then reassemble them.
I assume that you have checked your fuse panel and yur fuse is OK? I think there might be a fusible link too. Check your Haynes manual, it will show you where it is if there is one. If it is the one that comes right off the battery you can remove it and bypass it temporarily if need be.

You should check the fuel pump relay, located inside car, driver side under dash, above hood release, its a 6 prong relay.
