VIN Search

Open Chit Chat 20 Nov 2015
I only saw a post from 2005 about this so forgive me if I should be posting elsewhere - I have two VIN numbers for cars I'm purchasing - But I thought the one car was a '72 though the current owner is telling me that it's a '76.  Can anyone confirm the model and year by these VIN's? HLS30-04...

What maintains the fuel line pressure when the care is off?

Fuel Injection 27 Jul 2015
I've got a 76 z with the EFI. When I break open the fuel line just above the fuel filter for example (with the car off of course) there isn't any pressure in the fuel line and when starting it takes a while because I think it has to build up pressure again.  I've rec...

Body or drivetrain?

Open Chit Chat Today, 02:05 AM
So, I am looking for a 240z in my area, and its taking awhile due to a lack of 240zs in my area and a meager budget. But when I do purchase, I plan on creating a mechanically accurate Wangan Midnight Devil Z replica with a blueprinted 2.8L (and I mean actually blueprinted, all the way around) car...

OFFICIAL 280Z "Fuel Damper" thread!

Fuel Injection Yesterday, 08:13 PM
The FUEL DAMPER on my 1978 280Z is leaking and dripping gasoline. Aside from the obvious safety issues, it creates a pressure loss in the fuel system. The FUEL DAMPER sits directly above the fuel pump. Its purpose is to provide a smooth flow of fuel to the engine, so it is unwise to bypass it. Th...

No gas coming out of the tank!

Help Me !! Yesterday, 05:16 PM
Hey guys, I'm officially stumped and could use some suggestions.   I repainted the tank a couple weekends ago, put everything back together, and can't get any fuel to flow from the outlet.  I put a minimum of 5 gallons in there, so it's not low.  There's nothing physically blocking...

New 240z owner with Cracked Dash In need of advice

Open S30 Z Discussions Yesterday, 05:26 PM
Hi   I recently bought a wonderful '71 in excellent condition.  The odometer reads 59,000 miles which I believe to be correct.  I have owned a '73 as a teenager and later, I bought a '72.  They all had their 240z issues but I think I got one I can live with.    The o...

lighted Toggle Switches

Electrical 22 Nov 2015
If you needed to be able to direct power between different devices, like Fog or Spot lamps, or a pair of 12V power jacks,  you can use an ordinary SPDT toggle switch.  But if you wanted a visual indicator, a toggle switch with a pair of integrated colored lights or a dual-colored LED wo...
