    1975 280z original orange paint.
    2008 g35S sedan 6MT

    Hoping to baby my g35s on mileage while DD my 1975 with a rebuilt l24 engine until it dies. Then the REAL fun will begin.
  1. Gave in and re-installed the 50amp oem alternator. And voila, everything works normally, even the headlights. Odd....
  2. I will start with the alternator first, as it will at least let me drive to and from work without being stranded! =) Thank you all for your suggestions btw. Like I said, worst comes to worse, I'll just slap the 50amp alternator back on and live with it. I'm thinking there's some work-around for the missing wire- just got to wait for those who've worked around it to reply. EDIT: I did test the fuse-able links and power is going through both. And in the diagram that zedhead had post http://atlanticz.ca/zclub/techtips/fusiblelinks/index.html the two fuse-able links are for ignition and alternator: not for headlights. See? I'm learning.... i think
  3. Btw I couldn't find a 4 plug color scheme. Closest was the 6 plug with what you mentioned on the firewall in the picture earlier this morning
  4. Had her for a month. I've never seen a previous owner rewire. Worst comes to worse, I'll just put the original alternator back n re plug everything. But until then I'll wait for socal s130 to reply since he has same exact yr and issue. I was looking up and down the harness to see where it probably could be. But no luck. Hmm.
  5. You are correct, eurodat. I'm not splicing it, I just panicked when I couldn't find the green-red and I unplugged those to try it out and now I dont remember the order:disappoin:disappoin So, now that I have a meter, i put one lead to the battery and the other to...?
  6. No offense taken. I've got the meter handy and I can't wait to go home.... except I don't know exactly what I'm going to test yet and what readings I should be looking for. I'm assuming I'm looking to put one lead to the battery positive(with multimeter in 20v position) and one to the ends of those wires that are out? Disclaimer: this is my first vehicle that I'm doing significant work on, so bear with me =) In any case, I do believe the green fuse-able link for the headlight blew. I squeezed it and it's hollow feeling. As opposed to the other one is solid. @Siteunseen: I think the other fuse-able link block is under the visible one. If you notice in the last photo, there's that silver box that's under it. I'll get something to clean the wires with.
  7. I'll be skipping my workout today to take a meter to the vehicle and it's wires today. Sorry, trying to do too many things at once...
  8. Thanks SteveJ. Yeah I was bouncing and confused at the moment. Thanks for clearing that up. Tried this morning to look for more connectors. Only found 1 4pin that was going to the fuel fume thing(last photo). Hopefully help you guys see what I'm seeing. Driver's side wires. Hanging green wire Driver's side connector that isn't plugging into anything. Black/white and green/red (could this be it?!?! why is it hanging over here...) alternator shot Firewall on passenger side. Better open shot of passenger side wires. Connectors on the right side of the regulator box(closer to front) I messaged the other fella who had the same '75 missing green-red. Hopefully he responds asap too. Thank you guys for all of your help. It's GREATLY appreciated.
  9. SteveJ, is the C-6 farther towards the front of the vehicle? I think it may be right past my 2nd photo. I'll take another shot when It's light out. Currently can't sleep because this is haunting me. But my photo is of my ammeter while car is just started. I'm assuming the ammeter should be in the +.
  10. It wasn't on the same 6 prong connector. It was part of the 3 (yellow blue green). The 6 prong connector had the green - red slot capped. Just like my original post stated same as other guy who posted on another forum and in hybridz
  11. Okay. So I'll have someone sit in the cabin and listen for a click. What problem does the 76 have? And what if there are no relay clicks from cabin? If there isn't a spark, then I'm good? Ugh... it all started because of the stupid '75 not having that green+red wire that was supposed to be there as stated but was capped off....
  12. ah-ha! i'll be sure to check that when I get a chance this week. Thanks Zed Head! hopefully i'll fix this just in time before my dapper projectors come in. =) Then she'll finally be my DD. I just hope the other wires in my first picture that are hanging out(yellow is in, green, blue are out of socket) aren't needed after I replaced the alternator... *crosses fingers*
  13. Sorry, which green one in the 2nd picture(the blurry one)? I was in a rush to work so I took a few photos for reference and the 2nd was blurrier than the first closer shot.
