Re: Battery acting dead when it can be jump started

Sounds like you're on the right track, put a multimeter across the battery terminals when it's running once the jumper battery is removed, you should see about 13.8 volts.

Re: DJZs 2+2

Mucked around with this a bit more, it's developed a miss, I pulled out the plugs, it had 4 electrode Bosch plugs in it which looked quite yuck, I found some other plugs in the garage and whacked them in but the miss is still there. One injector is leaking and another has already had the hose replac...

Re: DJZs 2+2

Changed over the clutch hydraulics, the slave cylinder was rusted solid. After bleeding it I couldn't get it into gear with the engine running so I assumed the clutch was stuck to the flywheel, I jacked up the back and started it in gear then tapped the brakes and it broke free. Borrowed a stopper f...

Re: DJZs 2+2

So after I got this home I tried to start it and the fuel pump was dead which I was expecting, I changed it to the one out of the parts 2+2 and it started right up, took a couple of minutes for it to start running on all 6 but after it did it sounded fine. The throttle linkage was stuck so I lubed t...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

I've been mucking around with the mechanical fuel pump covers, I'll probably put this one on the car but I might make another and engrave it. https://i.imgur.com/nJJlvPz.jpg Also made some titanium gear stick bushes out of some scrap. https://i.imgur.com/mMYN7aT.jpg

DJZs 2+2

So this is the whale 2+2 that I picked up today with James' help. It's an '82 Australian import that had been sitting in a barn for 2 years, it's got a little bit more rust than I originally thought which is my fault for not looking more throughly. Being an 82 it has the below main differences: &quo...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Yeah tripod. Yeah some of mine were a bit different but I've got all 4x the same now. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk Interesting, I need one to put the other axle back together anyway so I'll get one and see if it works. The inner boots have a steel piece on them that gets crimped one rather ...

Are they tripod ones? The inner and outer boots on these axles are quite different.

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Figured out the wiring for the dash lights, I was going to get one of the 3 pin plugs and just make a loop wire but there's no clip as it was on the dimmer switch unit so I'll have to cut the plug off and splice the two wires together instead. In other news I bought another Z, it's a bone stock '82 ...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Didn't manage to get a lot done this weekend, got the new trans seal from Repco, asked them about a new CV boot for the 2nd time and it got too painful so I pulled one off one of my spare big spline axles today and put it on the other shaft. Didn't really want to use a 2nd hand one but it should be ...
