Haynes Manual 280z

    Recommended Posts

    Hi Guys, 

    Ordered a used copy of the Haynes manual (ISBN 0856962066) but while it says it covers the 280z, the only 280z/L28 content is appended at the end in a ~30 page supplemental chapter. Does anyone have a new copy of the book and know if there is more detail om the 280z and/or better integration of 280z content?

    Have you downloaded the 280Z Factory Service Manual for your specific year? They're free and readily available on xenons30.com and nicoclub.com. Might fill in the gaps...

    @CanTechZ & @cgsheen Thanks for the link. I have a copy of that one, but I heard there was some good info in Haynes and it was worth grabbing one as a back up. I might have an early year or something though because it only mentions 280z in a few places. See photos below. 

    Either way. Will go back to using the FSM

    Just checked my book shelf and I found that I still have a Haynes manual but it's older than yours, has only 240Z and 260Z content, no 280Z at all. However I found this on the Haynes website, it now lists the 280Z on the front cover. I wonder if they added more content.

    https://haynes.com/en-us/nissan/280z/1975-1978

    This one has 256 pages, my old one has 229 pages. How many pages in yours?

    Cheers and Happy New Year

    Mike

    I have a later copy that lists more 280Z stuff.  Haynes is usually one of the better non-OEM books.  But on important specs, I always check against the FSM.

    Okay, will return this one and get a new one. This one feels a little half baked. 

    Thanks for all the responses guys!
