Thanks for the reply. Let me give you a little more information. I have a 1983 280zx that I purchased as a "reliability problem" about 7 weeks ago. I have a 1981 280zx that I have had for several years.......and in the post I talk about the car that was under water in a local junk yard, 3 different cars. My 1983 car was never in a "flood". By "flooded so bad it won't start" I meant that the engine was flooded with fuel to the point it would not run. I have the car running great now. While I was trying to figure out my issue I read a lot of posts on 3 different Z car forums. I gained so mu
Greeting all. I recently purchased a 1983 280zx N/A manual Federal car that was listed as having a “reliability Issue”. The previous owner of the car had moved out of state and after spending an enormous amount of money and the car spending 13 months in 2 different shops he decided to wash his hands of the car. The PO was only able to drive the car 145 miles in a year and a half that he owned it! Being a pretty good backyard mechanic and having owned 4 other Z cars I figured that I could have the car up and running in less than a day. I was told that the car was running extremely rich to the

79-83 280zx distributor breaker plate repair kit. 22136-H9501 22158-S6700 Greeting everyone. I rebuilt my distributor from my 1981 280zx. When I took it I took it apart guess what I found, yep the plastic bearing holder had broken and the bearing were in the bottom of the distributor. I sourced a good distributor and removed the plastic bearing holder and sent it to an engineering firm that specializes is plastic molding/printing and had them redesign/reinforce the weak spots in the bearing holder and I have had a small batch of them produced. I have sourced proper size replacement bearings and I have even found a small stash of pickup coil magnets 22158-S6700 ! These also have a tendency to break and fall apart too. The vacuum advance is not a start/no-start kind of part, but does make your engine run much better at partial throttle and better acceleration at part throttle. The breaker plate comes apart pretty easy, but pay attention and take pictures. You can"t install the distributor in the engine (180° off) but you can re-assemble the distributor incorrect and the rotor will be 180° off. If you need info or advice, you can email me. The breaker plate 22136-H9501 is no longer in production so your options are repair the breaker plate (25.00) or replace the distributor ($200.00 or more!). $25.00 for the bearing retainer and 3 new bearings. The price includes shipping to the lower 48. Here is a video of a youtuber using my breaker plate to repair his distributor My contact information Craig Haug firstname.lastname@example.org seven-zero-one 471-fifteen, thirtyfour

Greeting all. I joined this forum but have not spent much time on it. I have re-designed the plastic bearing retainer that is broken in your distributor. I sell them for 2.00. Here is a picture of my broken retainer, an origional and my re-designed retainer. I removed all the week spots and beefed up the holes where the ball bearing sit. This will fit any 4 or 6 cylinder matchbox distributor. HAS TO BE A MATCHBOX DISTRIBUTOR. I have these posted on another Z site or if you search 280zx distributor repair kit you will find my story. Good luck.
