78 air intake probs

Help Me !! Today, 11:04 AM
wow... didn't even notice that big ol' open tube! while you're at it, check the pcv hose (underside of manifold down to block) it runs right over the exhaust manifold and the heat bakes it until it cracks & disintegrates. another huge vacuum leak spot.

Sanity check on 280z FI tests

Help Me !! Today, 10:45 AM
i believe the distance between the contacts is related to the point in the throttle application that the contacts close. in other words, it's not just a measurement of the gap, but a measurement of the timing of the switch closure in relation to your throttle position. bending the contacts can ge...

78 air intake probs

Good eye.  I looked closer and there's a huge leak in the boot between the AFM and the TB.  Massive quantity of unmetered air.  I'm going to guess that "tightening" means adjusting the AFM cog for more fuel.  Probably didn't mark the starting point either.  More tears...

Sanity check on 280z FI tests

Help Me !! Today, 10:45 AM
Nice work!.  In your picture it looks like 3 and 18 are open, and 2 and 18 are closed, which is correct for idle.  But you can see how it works, with the common center pin moving closer to 3 as the throttle opens, if I'm looking at it right.  You should be able to see it touch, and...

first thing i noticed is an un-capped vacuum port next to the brake booster. vacuum leaks and crusty electrical connections are your first 2 biggest enemy. the third is chopping up the system too much - all the sensors need to work together or you will not get good results.

 if I tighten the living crap out of my AFM it will run close to how it did before.  This level of detail will not work with the EFI system.  What does it mean?  What was tightened?   You have a long frustrating path ahead.

2015 Datsun

Open S30 Z Discussions Today, 08:24 AM
Forty-five years ago I traveled around in India in a Hindustan Ambassador (1956 British Morris Oxford clone) and the traffic scared the snot out of me.  Can't imagine I was any safer in that Ambassador than I would be today in the new Datsun.  But, at least I'd have seatbelts in the Dat...

Road Test - 2400 Miles in the Z Car

Open S30 Z Discussions 28 Apr 2015
Got to replace 2 of my very worn Dunlops, from this trip, with 2 new ones today.  Ordered from Tirerack. Dunlop Direzza Z2 Star Spec -  very sticky tires.  Had the Z1's on originally, lasted 5 years. Garrett Tire in Springdale was nice enough to get them on for me today before the...
