    Pricing on a 280 z motor

    What about a 82 280 zx?? anybody know what block/head that is? And what it's strong/weak points are?
  6. I have been looking around for a motor to rebuild for my 240. After all the looking around I have found a 78 280 motor for $400. Is this what i should expect to pay?

    Tear in my Beer

    I have a 73 240z that I bought 4-5 years ago and decided to dig in this weekend. I have been waiting all week for the weekend to get started and I lay there in bed like a kid on Cristmas eve and can't take it any more---so down to the office I wander and surf all the various web sites. Hats off to Kyle for an excelent job on the site (what ever happed to the Volvo?) But now I have two questions. #1 Are automatics a bad thing? I see so many builds out there and all are 4-5 speed. Should I now go on a quest in search of a stick? I understand the "it's a sports car" and things of that nature but just wondering if there are some defects there? #2 All built engines that I have seen seem to be L28/88 combo. Is this the best way to go and am I throwing good money in a bad spot going for some performance with the factory installed set-up? Thanks all for your help.

    first I would say what ever someone would pay for it--second details might be helpful---I have a car want to buy it. Mileage, condition are HUGE factors.

    My 73 240

    Your sitting on the the wrong side of the car. What did that mod cost you?? --good pic I also lookforward to someday having my 73 running and racing around.

    L24 getting started

    I finnaly dug my z out from under some snow and rolled it into the shop for the beging of an expensive journey. I am starting on the engine and have ordered " How to midify your Datsun". Does anyone know if this is a good polace to start? Also what is a good running Mild cam and what modification should I plan on for the head? Also this is a 73 so people have told me to junk the carbs because of problems with vapor lock. Any ideas there?

    how much is too much?

    Depends on how much the car really means to you. I just started a restoration and plan on droping 4-5 grand. I saw another guy that was sending his to the scrap yard cause nobody wanted it.
