  1. Very interesting topic. I have a 1/75 280z with CPU PN A11-000 050 which doesn't show up on the Federal or CA models chart. My car was a CA car from the beginning and has a M/T. I have two additional CPU's I grabbed several years ago when gong through wrecking yards. I don't remember what years they came out of, but here's the curious thing. Both of the CPU's work perfectly in my car. That is the car starts and runs just as good as the OEM BOSCH CPU . Just thought I would add to mix. Ron

  7. Does anyone have a source for a thermostat cover and housing for a 75 280? I've tried all the normal sources like Morotsports, Zcar Depot, etc with no luck. Also, will the 240 thermostat cover work on a 75 280. The OEM 75 cover was 2 bolt. Thanks...Ron
  8. I have several . pm me Ron
  9. Dave , Taking a second look at the new lug attached to ground looks like this was a new addition. Can you provide a photo with the cover off the terminal block? Also, the green and red wires come from your distributor. If either is grounded then it would be shorting out the spark timing.
  10. OK, I found the page in the FSM , BE 88. It says the spade connector goes to the AF sensor. If you look at the schematic for the 75 280 it shows that the spade connector is ground and goes to the AFM. Question : is you take the terminal block cover off is the black wire connected to the green wire?
  11. Dave, The black wire, spade connector , goes to ground. The attachment of the ground is under the AFM plate, but could go anywhere for ground. Again mine is a 75 CA model so it might be different. Couldn't open the BE.pdf. Also is the pdf , the one on line from the OEM FSM? I have a hard copy manual and don't see it if you can give me a page # I can look for it. Ron
  12. Dave, A couple more photos of what My 75 looks like. No Ground wire attached to the terminal block. Mine is bone stock Ron
  13. Dave, I have a very early 75(1/75) and it looks like the FSM, at least the connector ground. No additional wire (green) coming from the terminal block. My green wires go into the harness! Ron
  14. If you really believe it's not that bad I'd hate to see a really rusty Z. Rust never sleeps and by the time it's this visible there are real problems. Well that's your opinion and this is mine.
  15. WOW! I have a 75 and that car is really in bad shape. It's what I would call the Datsun submarine---It's been under water most of it"s life and 58K miles? More that likely it has 258K on the car. I would be hard pressed to go higher than $500, honestly, but your better to walk away. You will put $25k into that car just to make it safe to drive and that's you doing ALL the work. I've seen several really nice cars lately for about $5k. They are out there just be patient. Ron
