  1. I will try and search but I would like to clean in my engine bay area. Any recommendations? Thanks.
  2. Yep on the cleaning. Replaced the main ground strap. Hooked up the dangling lead. Checked the fusible links. Car started right up. The connection at the fuel pump is loose so I need to fix it. Thanks
  3. This might be a real stupid question but will this keep the car from starting? Thanks.
  4. OK, as everything goes I am having trouble getting the 280 started after sitting for 6 months or so. I am getting 1.3V at the fuel pump. When I forced 12 volts to it I did get fuel flow. I thought I would send over some photos for review. I am going to replace ground strap/wire to body and clean up the other wire coming off the negative battery terminal today. I am focused on the two other connectors to the battery. If you notice in the photo, one of them is going to nothing and the other to the positive terminal with one leg broke out. The wiring diagram shows one male and one
  5. SteveJ, did you get the PM? Just making sure it went through.
  6. Thanks, I will let you guys know how the sale goes. Going to do just a quick little clean up and should be posted within the next week or so.
  7. Anyone have an idea on the best way to sale these cars? I can go a year here in Louisville, KY without seeing a 70's model z. I assume there will be enough interest in the area but not sure. Thanks
  8. It is a sad day in my life. I have decided it is time to part with my 1976 280Z 2+2. Also losing my 2008 LR3 due to jumping timing unless I can find someone to fix reasonably. I am having a real difficult time determining a value/price for my 280. I know that this is almost impossible to determine based on actual condition of the vehicle. Just looking for some decent advice. Car details - 80,000 miles - Mechanically good - Average paint job no where near show quality 7/10 - Interior probably a 7/10. Seats are really good but the carpet needs to probably b
  9. I think he was drunk. LOL. Not a show room job by any means but not bad. When I got the car it had no paint on it what so ever and I was getting concerned about salt roads and rust. I am trying to remember where they came from. Why do you ask? I had some electrical issues with alternator and external voltage regulator and if I recall that caused issues with the links. Upgraded to the 60 amp alternator with the internal voltage regulator. Thanks.
  10. And its a 4 speed manual... Thanks.
  11. I will try and get a few pics and short video in the next day or so. One other thought and again I realize it is hard to predict; but it seems like prices have gone up lately. Just curious if you guys have any thoughts to how things may go over the next few years. Thanks and pics and video coming soon.
  12. Trying to decide whether to part with my 1976 Datsun 280Z 2+2. I really do not want to but to many other projects I want to do. I realize this is solely and highly dependent on condition but trying to see what the market is actually seeing. My car is for the most part stock. It does not have the original bumpers but a body kit. It has around 80,000 miles with original engine. The Alternator has been upgraded to the 1978 or 79 alternator. Can't remember if they are the same. Painted a few years ago; however, average paint job. 99% rust free. Drives fine. No AC at
  13. I removed the clam shell around the steering column to get a better look at the turn signal switch. I played a little with the turn signal lever and I did get both signals to work properly a few times. It then stopped working again. It appears that my problem is in the switch and maybe intermittent contact in the right turn signal position. I did look through the turn signal repair post but I am concerned that the work is a little much for me to do successfully. I am wondering if I could just try and spray something into the switch area? I may attempt the repair and maybe it is not as ha
  14. So SteveJ is I can fully understand your post, and thanks for the detail, if everything is working except the right turn signal light blinking on dash and right turn signal outside then it is either the turn signal switch or wiring for that specific side. If the hazards are working properly then does that minimize the wiring possibilities. I am trying to walk through the wiring diagram to isolate the possible issues if not the switch. Thanks.
