You do realize that you're on what is predominantly a 240-260-280Z site, right? Yeah, there are a few members that have 280ZXs but there really isn't what you'd refer to as a lot of discussion here about them. Just trying to explain the lack of responses. Here's a link to a 1983 280ZX factory service manual and perhaps you can find what you're looking for in there:
