  1. So I just recently (yesterday) bought myself my very first Z car. A 1980 Datsun 280zx completely stock. I'm about to do an alt on it in hops to getting it running! She will start with a charged battery then die when charge dies. I was originally told it was lacking the Alt belt but upon inspection the belt was actually there so I presume that would mean the Alt is faulty. is there anything else I should take into consideration and close look at while restoring this? any problem spots or things worth doing for the long run? Unknown miles and while its running there's no weird noises other than an exhaust leak. any help is appreciated!!
  2. When the engine warms up, the idle rises to 2100rpm. It stays there until coming to a nearly complete stop(~3mph), where it suddenly drops to 900. The car has no cruise or AC and has 62,000 miles. We brought it to our general mechanic, and he can't make heads or tails of it. Has anyone else had this problem before, or a good idea of what causes it?
  3. Hello! I’m not sure if this is the place where I’d be posting about this, but I found an okay Datsun 240z for $4,000 off the site “http://www.eautostock.com/“ and was wondering if anyone has delt with them before and are they reputable or safe? I’ve done some research and I can only really see good reviews, but I just wanted some more input Incase y’all had any. They ship the car to me for a 10 day inspection period and if I like the car, I can buy it, if not I can decline the sale and they will take it back to there warehouse. Thank you guys and gals for any input on the site. ?
  4. I have a question about my radio. My car is a 1982 Datsun 280zx N/A. It has the digital radio display, but it doesn't work most of the time. However, I've noticed that if I've been driving the car for quite a while with the radio on, it will sometimes come on and work. It usually stays on until the car has been turned off for a while. Any idea what the problem could be?
  5. I have a 73 240z with no electric fuel pump. I just installed the ZXP plug and a 280zx 60amp alternator. The new alternator appears to have a cut out on the back of it. Do I need to unplug the one that was bolted to the external voltage regulator? Thanks
  6. I am looking for a couple reverse gears to rebuild my 71 z tranny. Anybody know a good source?
  7. Hello. I'm new here so please excuse me if I posted this in the wrong place. I mean no disrespect! -- I just bought a 1978 280z and it came with a box of parts. I'm having a heck of a time identifying the two pieces in the photos attached. Can you help me? They might go with the previous owner's 240z but they were in the box labeled for the 280z. Thanks in advance for your help. I've looked through listings on various sites and in my service manual but can't seem to figure this out. -- James
