    Fuel problems? Spark?

    This is what I was hoping he would tell us, whether it is unplugged or not

    Fuel problems? Spark?

    If you installed new injectors you should have already replaced the seals as well. Why did you have to install new gaskets? Did you have the engine torn apart, did you have vacuum leaks? What prompted you to do this work if it was running before? Need more info from you. Just noticed your other post. So you had an oil leak....so I understand the pan gasket. Intake gasket...why? What is etc.? Need to know what gaskets you changed.

    And are you referring to the injector seals?

    Misfiring while cruising

    Here's your sign. Don't leave the chokes on for that long. Bet that will clear up your problem.

    That's what I was wondering, but forgot to ask. Although my stuff is clean, just dull.

    Wow that looks great. Makes me want to get at least my 280 fuel rails done. They look terrible right now.

    Vibration dampener thingy

    That Lead Noise Damper for the Differential By Gary L, August 29, 2016 in Engine and Drivetrain found this here on this site. Guess it was standard equip. Why mine doesn't have it I have no idea.

    It would be interesting to know why its there. My 77 doesn't have it and never did. I know another owner that does not have it either. So if it was there for noise deadening, or what ever reason, then shouldn't it have been on every 77? Assuming it's from your 77 280. I don't recall seeing it in the FSM either. I'll have to look for it when I get home.

    240z on velocity network fantomworks

    It was a good show. I liked the fab of the under body jack supports.

    Got mine in 1980 while I was stationed in Okinawa. I started looking for it yesterday and gave up shortly after that. It's tucked way back in the rafters somewhere in a heavy duty tote.

    I have one too Dennis. I believe it's a Sansui. Lots of reels full of music. But not the white pants. Mike, I'll be on the lookout for that issue for sure.

    Mine is a 5/77 with a flat deck if that helps. I think they were sloped before 5/77, IIRC.
