My friend, permit me to compliment you on your superior intelligence. If more of the users of this site had the good sense to read a manual, there wouldn't be all these Why the **** won't my **** car start? posts.
The '77 Chilton's Z manual is not out of print; J. C. Whitney has them for $16.99 at (312) 431-6102. The title of the manual is 70-88 Nissan/Datsun 240Z, 260Z, 280ZX & 300ZX, and the Whitney stock number is 81KX2486A.
If you want an original, out-of-print Datsun manual, try a search at the American Book Exchange site: <A HREF=http://www.abebooks.com>http://www.abebooks.com</A>. Good luck with your Z!

The cost will be $73.00 and it will be a photocopy of the original. They will only take checks by mail... so you will wait a few weeks to get your manual
Write a check for $73 made out to:
Nissan Service Publications and send it to them at: 20770 Westwood Drive
Cleveland, Ohio 44136
Ask them for the 1977 280Z Service Mnaual
They also have Owners Mnuals for $15.
They will photocopy the entire service manual and send it to your return address. I got my '77 service manual from them and it is pretty decent.
