  1. Why do you think the expansion tank is useless? Be careful about plugging up vent holes. The mechanical fuel pump won't pull well on a vacuum. As for the SU vs downdraft, most of the people who installed the Weber downdraft carburetors did so to work around the issues with the 73/74 flat top carburetors, or they didn't understand how the round top SUs work. No advantage for the Webers over round top SUs in good shape.

    ZCON

    until
    ZCON is in Atlanta in 2018. Track day at Road Atlanta. You might even get to be on the track with John Morton. Autocrossing, karting, brewery night, mountain drives...You KNOW you want to make it. Special guests include Toshio Yamashita, designer of the Z32; Yoshihiko Matsuo, designer of the 240Z; and Peter Brock & John Morton, two of the legends from BRE. Go to http://zcon.org/conventions/2018/?page_id=132 to get to the registration link. https://youtu.be/itAz7Szpb-k
  3. Unfortunately for your effort, most of those hoses are NLA from the dealer. The cost to create reproductions like what you find on Motorsport Auto (http://zcarparts.com) or JDM Car Parts (http://www.jdm-car-parts.com) is not trivial. There weren't a lot of these cars built, so the set up costs for reproductions is spread out over fewer units.
  4. Hi Steve,

    Any suggestions on where these two parts go? They came out when I removed the a/c and heater to replace the heater valve. Thank you.

      I couldn't find anything in the parts manual or the FSM that would give me an idea of what those are for.

  6. Looking for a FSM for a 78 280Z.....In an earlier thread, I saw mention that you had a link in your signature.  Went to your signature and don't appear to see it but may be in the wrong place.  Do you have a suggestion where I can locate one?

    Thanks in advance.

      It's there. You have to look under S30 Reference. There are also FSMs on this site, though I don't know if the full S30 collection is present.
