  1. View Advert 240Z Vietnam SS Bumpers I purchased these for a 280Z conversion but the shipper send me bumpers with holes for the bumperettes which I did not order. They did send me the correct bumpers but did not want to pay shipping back to Vietnam so I am stuck with them. So I am offering them up for $499 plus shipping. Comes with all the hardware needed for installation. I have installed the replacement and they fit with no issues and look great. . Advertiser chiefmd Date 04/01/2019 Price Category Parts for Sale

  3. Thanks Z Head. I agree with with the poorly assembled". I 'll go thru all appropriate checks.
  4. Decided to replace the old worn out distributor on my 77 280z. Received the replacement and decided to check the air gap and its greater (about twice) than what the FSM recommends. So I thought maybe I should check the original dizzy and it to was well over max recommended setting. My question is should I go ahead and set the new distributor to the factory setting. Thanks PS Forgot to mention that the car did run before I pulled the distributor, but it was running rich.
  5. Thanks for the input. Did remove the frame and the 4 screws and just lifted the window out. Thanks again.
  6. Getting ready to install new door cards and mirrors on my 77 280z. Looks like I have to remove the door glass to fit the mirrors. I would like to just remove the glass but the FSM isn't overly clear as how to go about this. From what I can see there are four screws that hold the window to the mechanism. I'm hoping that I can remove the screws and lift the window out of the tracks, am I correct. If not, any assistance on how to remove just the window would be appreciated.
  7. I agree with not bundling wires together that why I would use wire separators
  8. Charles - Thanks. I agree about Taylor. Not to concerned with stock look. By the way I received the bumpers from VN and they are just what I wanted and they look really good. They have never asked for the other bumpers so I believe I'll wait a few months and if they don't send me a return shipping label I'll offer them up to someone for a really good price.
  9. Looking to replace spark plugs wires. I want to reroute them around the front of the valve cover so as to clean up the top of the engine. Anyone recommend a universal wire kit? I looked at these on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001BDSVOM/?coliid=I1BQQ5EHLL1OOD&colid=1NGAP9N7LV0Z3&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it https://www.amazon.com/Taylor-Cable-73051-Spiro-Pro-Black/dp/B000CQ006Q/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&keywords=universal+spark+plug+wire+kit&link_code=qs&qid=1549672994&sourceid=Mozilla-search&sr=8-4&tag=mozilla-20
  10. Just to update you. The bumpers (without holes) were shipped thru Fedex and expected delivery is Jan 28th. I have been tracking them. They departed Viet Nam and went to Jakarta then to Singapore then onto to Japan. When I receive them I will give you an update as to fit and finish. Patcon looks like Bumperclassic is charging $120 more. I paid $666 ship to the east coast.

    AFM switch

    I did some checking and the car that the 76 AFM came out of had a ECU labeled A11-600-000 which is the same as my current 77 280Z. So, I think there should be no compatibility issues. Maybe as RCB280z said " it will just be an adjustment on the "idle air screw"

    AFM switch

    Really appreciate all the input. I think I'll just perform the basic pin/ohm checks and if all checks out install and see what happens. Again thanks

    AFM switch

    Thanks Eurodat. I remember reading somewhere that 75 and 76 were interchangeable but they could be used on a 77 but would need to be recalibrated. If so are the any sites that might show you how to. Thanks
  14. I have a76 280Z refurbished AFM (from MSA) that has only been on the car for a couple of months. I'd like to put on my 77 280Z. It is a 7 pin 3 hole mount and looks exactly the same as my current AFM that's on the car. It has a tag with " FUEL INJECTION CORPORATION " and the #170348.
  15. Thanks for the part number. Didn't think of looking by L28 for other models. Thanks again.
