I just brought my 75 280z out of storage. I charged the battery and tried to fire her up, but no gas to carbs. I disconnected the fuel line and tried to fire it up again to see if gas was going to the filter. No gas. My only thought is that the fuel pump is shot. I switched from fuel injectors to Mikunini's years ago.

Does anyone have any thoughts? I don't think I can get the mikuni parts?

Thanks

Well, there are lots of different fuel pumps on the market that would work just fine.....BUT...my question would be 'is the pump running or not'? If the pump is running, I would be inclined to suspect that the pickup or line or pump is clogged with varnish or gummed up dried out fuel. That would necessitate cleaning lines, pickup, or pump. If pump is not running then time to check for power to the pump first and fix that if not. If you have power and pump is not running then you have a bad pump.
