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

Fuel Injection 27 Jul 2015

Open S30 Z Discussions 22 Apr 2015
I've been lurking here and some of the other Z boards for a while, and after wanting a project car for basically my entire life, I finally pulled the trigger a couple weeks back so I guess it's time to join; hope y'all have room for one more!   So here it is, my new 1978 Z, as it looked when...

I open myself for you criticism!

Open S30 Z Discussions 13 Oct 2013
Hi all! I have been underground for a while working on my '76 280z. I decided to hold off posting until I had something worth showing. My 280z was a bit of a whore in a prom dress. As I disassembled it and mounted it in the rotisserie it became obvious that I had a bit of a basket case...
