Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

So, after fixing a bunch of problems today I managed to get the 2+2 started, first thing was the only air flow meter I could find had been sitting outside for over a year so after pulling it apart and cleaning and lubing it I managed to free it up. I found a key in the centre console but it was basi...

Any idea for a time line to get a power tune done?


Nah, no time line at this stage. I'll put a little bit more boost into it but it's fast enough for the moment.

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Noticed one of my headlights is cracked, the road works on the way out to work are really terrible. The parts car came with some Hella semi sealed units so I'll probably swap both of those in at some stage. The dash/tail light problem is still there, I need to get the car out of the garage so I can ...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Have just about got the L28 in the parts car ready to run, somebody did some very odd disassembly on it, can't quite figure out why. It was unbolted from the box and also from the engine mounts so it looks like it was ready to come out but they'd also removed the fuel rail and bent it in the process...

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

Turns out I ordered the wrong cam angle sensors, they still fit but the plugs come out in different directions, the engine actually uses 4 or 5 sensors that are basically the same so I've swapped them around so the ones visible on the top of the engine match. Drew up and cut out some engine mount pl...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

So after a lot of thinking I ended up buying another Z to take the engine and gearbox out of to put this car back to "standard" so I can sell it. I've got too many projects at the moment (and want to buy more) and I'm just not really that attached to this car. So it's a 1979ish 2+2, it's b...

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

My new cam angle sensors turned up, that's about all I've done on this in a while. Need to get the sump flange pattern sorted and buy some ali to make one out of.

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Drove the car out to work again today, it went pretty well. Windscreen chrome hasn't fallen off yet. I took 15% fuel out on the way to work and also put the fan temp up by 2 degrees, it ran fine the whole way there. I did a little bit of playing with the fuel map during my breaks and also adjusted t...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Took one of the original engine mounts off to see what the GTR ones were like, the thickness is the same but the locating dowel is in a slightly different place, I didn't have time to sort it out at the moment as I was trying to take it to the Rakaia cruise so I ended up putting the original back on...
