  1. My friend's '72 240Z Series 30 is a garage queen that is a family heirloom. My friend is disabled, so I help him with it occasionally. It is started occasionally and run for awhile to get the engine warmed up. It now won't start - at all. The starter spins it well, and there it has a half-tank of gas. I pulled the No. 1 spark plug, which was a little dirty, but not particularly fouled. We cranked it over, and there was pretty good spark. I disconnected the discharge side of the fuel pump at the front carb, and cranked again. Gas is flowing in even pulses from the end of the hose. Took off the air cleaner and tried again with no result. Throttle linkage seems to be working OK, and the choke shafts are turning (externally). What might be next? Do the SU carbs need to be overhauled? A few weeks ago, it would start, after a lot of cranking, but would barely run. Thanks in advance. John
  2. Hey I just bought a 1974 260z for $1200. Its in amazing condition for the price, no rust, good interior (original), original red paint with little oxidization, and new tires. I couldn't drive it when i bought it due to the fact that it was broken into and the aftermarket MSD ignition was stolen (why the price was low). But i figured if the 4 speed manual transmission was shot or the engine busted i could part it out for a decent profit. Well i bought the MSD ($189 at kragens) hooked it up and turned her on. The sound was amazing but before i could drive it she shut off. It wouldn't idle i could gas it and she would stay running but as soon as I let go of the accelerator it turned off. So my question is why wont it idle? carburetor? (dual webers) Fuel pump? i did replace the fuel filter though it wasn't bad at all. Thanks for your time, Josh
