I'm not sure if you can find an ignition relay for a 79. I constructed a replacement for a 79 ignition relay for a friend who was working on a customer's car.

Site, See what happens when you have too much beer with deck building... I haven't fallen off yet!   Bud Lite and a nail gun makes for a quick build.  Too quick on that one.

Need Choke Cable Clip - Anyone?

Carburetor Central 20 May 2015
I found out there were two ways to clamp the cables when I noticed that one carb was a 4 screw and one was a 3 screw put on by the dealership in 1980.  I switched out both of those carbs for a pair of 4 screw in 2010.  Thats when I noticed both were different.  It was a real head s...

Turning Engine by Hand

Engine and Drivetrain 20 May 2015
He's gotta remove the head anyway, E31 currently, N47 on the indoor motor.   These make it easier, $13 at amazon.com.   EDIT: I just read where you're going to use the N47 head.  I'm probably wrong but won't the fuel injector holes have to be welded over for carbs? and the exhaust...

Intermittent Loss Of Power-1972 240Z Stock

Help Me !! 14 Apr 2015
If you've got those nail head connectors loose on the sending unit you're half done, they were a huuuge pain for me.  Putting them back is even more fun, FYI.  Dropping the tank is not as bad as you think, piece of plywood on a floor jack, let it down a little at a time and remove the h...

Turning Engine by Hand

Engine and Drivetrain 20 May 2015
Yes, replacing the rings requires removing the head. Do you have the necessary tools to properly replace the rings and do all the other work that comes along with that? If not, just run it and see what happens. It seems you have already verified the engine turns and does not have a broken rod or...

Are you asking for the part number for a 1979 280ZX ignition relay?  Or help with the no-crank problem?     You didn't mention finding the short that caused the fusible link to smoke, or if the 30 amp fuse blew when you tried to start it again.

Electrical 28 Aug 2010
I have a similar problem on my 79' 280zx. I was driving one day then it suddenly just turned off on me, popped opened the hood and one of the fusible links on the passenger side was smoking. After that the car would not even crank just a click in the inner passenger kick panel. I tried replacing...
