    1977 280Z intake exhaust gasket

    I've read on this and other forums that MSA's gasket seems to fail more often so I was looking for an OEM with round exhaust ports but everything I found had square ports. I have a 77 with a P-79 head. I'll check and see if there is a part # on the MSA gasket.
  3. I've been looking for a good gasket to use with MSA header (round exhaust port). Not so sure about the MSA gasket that was included. After searching I came across this https://www.ebay.com/p/Engine-Block-Cover-Gasket-ITM-09-50527-fits-76-78-Nissan-280Z-2-8L-L6/74968871?iid=302786175086 and was wondering if anyone has used one. I like the metal around the exhaust port. I know a lot of people recommend Datsun OEM but it does not have the round exhaust port. Appreciate the input.

    280ZX FPR Wows

    Me neither. I can't believe that all the aftermarket manufactures have stopped making it and the one's that are available are ridiculously priced. I did find a used one for $50 but I'm a little hesitant as it is 35 years old. I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and pay up 😞

    280ZX FPR Wows

    Site - Thanks for the input. I searched for Ultra Power p/n UPR PR8 and they must have discontinued, no luck. I guess I'll just keep searching or maybe even try blocking off one of the pipes on the 280Z FPR.

    280ZX FPR Wows

    I have been searching for a 280ZX Fuel pressure Regulator and with the exception of one for $200 - $500 I can't seem to find one. The Beck/Arnley 158-0091 model seems to be out of stock every where I check. Can anyone help me out and either direct me to a vendor or sell me one. Thank you.

    Storing Emrty Fuel Tank

    WOW.... Zhead I never thought of that.That could be my answer. I think I should try that for a couple of weeks and see what it yields. Thanks for thinking outside the box.

    Storing Emrty Fuel Tank

    Ok. After doing some more research and reading I think the suggestion to use POR 15 is the winner. I have cleaned out the tank with Evaporust and its is really clean. I was wondering if I need to use POR 15's complete kit, marine cleaner, metal and sealer or can I just add the sealer? Thanks for all the input.
  9. In the process of rebuilding my 77 280z. Pulled the tank and cleaned out the rust. I am not going to be reinstalling it until at least next year so I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions as to how to store so that it won't rust again.

    Injector Identification

    That looks like a good deal. I think I'll make the purchase and keep mine as a backup set. Thanks or all the help.
  11. Was researching fuel pumps and came across this thread, Very interesting. So I started googleing "Bosch 0580254984" and came across this pump. Here is the link https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Electrical-Fule-Pump-With-Install-Kits-for-Porsche-Volvo-Benz-450SEL-911-924-/322645466079?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c10#viTabs_0 It looks identical to the Bosch but who knows. Has anyone tried one of these?

    They were tested with 38psi

    Injector Identification

    So mine would be 100cc/min? Or is a flow test that NAPA performed different than actual flow during operation on the car? Also,looked at the injectors on The Z store. They do look similar but no numerical identification. Still leaves me wondering who manufactures them and what are the specs. Thanks for the input.

    Injector Identification

    I have a 77 280z that I purchased this summer for a winter project (or longer). Working on the fuel system so I decided to take the injectors to NAPA to have them rebuilt and cleaned. All good just one injector has a wider spray pattern than the others but flow rate was consistent, 49, 48, 49, 48, 48, 49 ML for 30 seconds. First, I can't find anything on the flow rate for the injectors, Secondly can't find anything on the injectors. Here is a description\of the injectors: Light green ( Turquoise ) plug with markings that say RAM, RIM-116, 7016. Would appreciate any input. Thanks

    All studs or studs and bolts

    So I should just order studs for exhaust and bolts for the intake.
