    Thanks for your email it is not an emmergency and i am waiting to see if some one could found one for me,i could buy one from Z cars Source of Arizona refinished for about $130.00,so i am trying to see if i can do better ,let me know once you get it what condition and what will be your price.May be a picture will help me to make my decision.The oil pan need to be for a 280Z , 1977, and the oil drain plug in back of the pan ,not on the side of the pan.

    regards.

  8. Thanks for all your email i did buy a oil pan gasket but it is not a cork one mine is a Fel-Pro OS 20076 a little bit thicker than a cork gasket (BRIAN)or should i exchange it.The reason i want to have them finish the job is because i have pay $$$ for the job allready,i may think to do it myself as you sugested but if i tell them to install the gasket and i found a pan at a reasonnable price then if they dont do the job so it doesnt leak any more then i will ask for my money back and never return back.This is my reasonning and i might be wrong but at this point i have nothing to loose just an other trip to the dealer and in the future i will look for a small shop who deal with Z in Tucson.

    Again thanks for Helping.

    Regards

    i have a 1977 280z,and i have had the nissan dealership here in tucson az change the rear main seal (the seal do not leak any more) but the oil pan gasket since then has not stop leaking. Now they told me that the reason is that there was two oil pan support bracket missing wich i have now purshaced from one of the member,there are willing to redo the job and this time use the support for the pan but they are telling me that it is going to be better not to use a oil pan gasket this time and just use silicone.

    I am still at lost with getting the dealer fixing my oil pan i got the Z back last week and it still leak!!! it is a thing after the other now the mecanic there is telling me that if it leak again i will have to change the oil pan,dont understand why ??? i have to change it,they say it might be worpt first the rear main seal ,then the clutch slave cylinder,then the oil pan gasket,and now the oil pan.??? he is still not instaling a oil pan gasket even that i gave him one ,if any one as some more sugestions please let me know.I wish they fix it once and for all,so this is the reason why i am now looking for a oil pan so i can enjoy my car.

    Thanks for asking any suggestions??

  10. Does any one know the oil drain plug location on a late 1976 280Z (WILL MAKE IT A 1977CAR. ???). I need to find an oil pan for that period as my current pan has a oil plug in the back of the pan, and the only ones that I have found contain the plug on the left side(passenger side). Can someone explain to me if I need an oil pan with a side plug or a back plug? Anyone have a correct oil pan that fits my 280z for sale at the moment?

    Thanks for the advice!
