  1. So the bolting fitment doesn’t really matter? Thank you, you made my choice a lot easier, I’ll with the autozone most likely due to the cheaper price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hello, I have a 1978 280z with a dead starter so I removed it and began to look for a replacement. Although the fitment makes me hesitant on which to get. The starter I removed looks identical to a 1977 280z starter but when searching on online stores it says a 1977 starter will not fit a 1978 280z. Now the pictures of the 1978 starter do not look like they will fit my 1978 the mounting is reversed almost along with no cone, I may be overthinking this and it may seem like a stupid question but is there a difference? The first photo is from autozone, the second from zcardepot and the f
  3. Thank you, I’ve been going around looking for air leaks, I haven’t found one yet, but I heard the best bet is to replace all vacuum lines to not have to worry about a leak. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thank you, I will look into them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Planning on doing timing right after I finish installing radiator, I also need a timing gun for that which i don’t have sadly. Thank you for advice I will definitely look into valve lash adjustment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. No I haven’t checked that, is there a source where I can find how to check or adjust? The car does hesitate to build rpms, but the timing is off so it could also be that. Thank you for the comment I really appreciate it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thank you so much for the reply, I will make another video as soon as I install the new radiator. I actually have heard of that, I believe its called something like batch fire. Once again thank you for the advice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hello, thanks to the help of the many fine gentlemen on this forum, my 280z seems to be running decent now. After doing various tests the car seems to run decent, timing needs to be done along with a new starter(positive wiring wiggles causing a poor connection). I also ended up finding one major issue which was a bad fuel pump after upgrading to a walbro 255 the car does not die anymore. Sadly the car does having a ticking noise which seems to my dad to be loud injectors, but I presume a worn rocker arm. I need thoughts on the noise the first link is where the engine is running horrible due t
  9. https://youtube.com/shorts/OenZrP1w7Kw here the video you would like to take a look, it sounded a bit better yesterday and after it warmed up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Also is there anyway to upload or send you a video of the engine running? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thank you, I appreciate the response and the continued help with trying to get the car running in better shape. Electrical stuff isn’t my strong suit either, It can be quite confusing and very overwhelming. But I downloaded the color diagram for the wiring, and also the EFI bible which ill be reading through and running some of the trouble shooting methods and tests, I already had the FSM. I will trace down all the wiring and see how well of a job I can do with EFI bible and FSM and keep you updated, but yes I also believe the harness isn’t hooked up to the battery. Thank you for all the help
  12. The positive cable is the one with the two white wires. The skinny red wire I assume is their poor job at a subwoofer, and the thick red wire has a job and I’m going to be adding it to the positive terminal cable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. The battery connections are new, I had already gotten 2 new battery cables so the connections are clean and nice. I can update you with some better photos of the links tomorrow as of right now I’m out. I checked by attaching a line to the fuel filter, and disconnecting the starter solenoid, the gauge read at 20-25psi. There are no extra wires connected to my negative battery terminal. There are 2 white wires to my positive which go into the wiring harness under the fusible links, There is an extra red wire which I’m figuring out what it does that seems to run along into the the dash board are
  14. Car starts and stays on now, changed the fusible links, new battery, the fuel pump is a little low on the pressure but works, and messed with the idle a bit. Oh and also cleaned the grounds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
