  1. Ohhhhh ok that makes alot more sense. I thought those nuts were part of the bolt cuz I could NOT get them off lol Thanks!
  2. is the hex nut thingy part of that screw? Or is is just a double threaded rod with a nut on it??
  3. So there is a total of two nuts on the screw? Before AND after the fan base?
  4. Take this with a grain of salt cuz i'm new to the datsun community and im trying to learn myself. But I make the same mistake, having the distributor on backwards. What I did was made sure that the sprockets and whatnot were in the correct timing position (TDC), then just did some trial and error. Barely turning the distributor and cranking... And so on. Eventually I found that "sweet spot" and tightened the distributor back down. But like i said, i have no clue what im doing haha.
  5. Hey everyone! This might be a dumb question, but I'm doing my first L28 build and I cannot figure out how to get this radiator fan on for the life of me. It seems to be the pulley assembly and then the fan clutch that goes onto the end of the camshaft. Should be simple, but I cant figure out the order in which they need to be installed. It apparently uses some double threaded screws and some nuts but I just cant seem to get it. SMH.
  6. Ohhh makes sense. I was just curious. Thanks!
  7. I have a 1977 Datsun 280z and I was surprised to see that my spare tire well is quite shallow. The tire sticks out past the bottom of the trunk bed and ios covered by a board. Oof hopefully that makes sense. What exactly is that? Cuz I know most cars have a deep wheel well that holds a full size tire.
  8. Hi! So ive been having an issue getting my 1977 280z to start. I have spark, compression, and have been running fuel manually with an extra battery and test leads on the fuel pump. I think it sounds like the engines firing, but it just doesnt wanna turn over. Any suggestions?
  9. But for long term, how do I go about undoing this "safety feature"
  10. Would that keep me from getting power to the pump? Cuz I’m only getting like .16 volts.
  11. Yeah I’ve got some work to do because it’s not cranking anymore either.
  12. Haha now I’m not even getting power to the pump. I’m getting less than a volt off the wires that go to the pump.
  13. The fuel pump makes no noise at all so I feel like it’s something electrical. I tried two different pumps. One of which I know works because I pulled it off another working 280. Any ideas?
  14. Can I use starter fluid to eliminate fuel as an issue? I heard that starter fluid was bad for fuel injection.
