    Ignition circuit wires all smoking

    Could it be because you have isolated the coil from ground with that paper/cardboard in between the coil and it's holder? if the black wire is a bad ground.... And.. What brand do those wires smoke? ... sorry i could also not help myself.... 😜

    Here some pic's from the "old" suspension-arm, it clearly did not have any anti-rust treatment.

    I've got a question.. here in europe a 280zx has 2 different types of brakepads and cylinders in the rear, one till 1980-81.. and one after... round that time.. i had a bad rear wheel suspension arm so had to get me a good one, the brakecylinder mount is different so i had to have those aswell!! my question is there difference in brakerotor over the years on the rear of a 280zx? much apriciated! I've got a as new set arms and brakeparts now from the latest type 280zx eurostyle.. (1982-83)

    Purchased my First S30 Today!

    Yes, can be in de States..don't forget that the 260z was for sale in europe till 1978! There was no 280z overhere! I know of a 1979! 260z.. it was a car that was in a dealer's showroom for a long time and sold in 1979.. so in our books (Year of putting it on the road with a licenceplate..) it's a 1979 car. Here in europe the 280zx was the car that came after the 260z.. I Always thought the 280zx and 300zx z31 were the black sheeps... But they are also starting to get more expensive.
