Well it looks like I will need to a bit of maintenance on this thing. In no particular order will be
Replace injectors
Replace injector plugs
Compression test
Replace heater and radiator hoses
Replace fan belts
Replace or overhaul waterpump
Delete unnecessary vacuum and breather hoses, possibly ERG setup
Look for possibility of distributor replacement/upgrade
Replace ignitor and coil
Remove rear aircon/heater as non functional dead weight
Pull door cards and bonnet lining off and spray in some cavity wax
Replace front sway bar bushes
Service
Check brake pads and shoes
Find spare fuel pump, throttle pot and AFM
Move horns to behind grill
Have alternator overhauled
Possibly change to aftermarket ECU/ engine management

The main point here would be that parts are not all the easy to get for these things and I am not really hung up on having it completely jdm stock, would rather have a reliable cruiser and change a few bits to off the shelf items that can be sourced in nz. The aim is to have it going again for September next year for a planed lap of the South Island. The first thing to do is check the compression to make sure the mechanical side of things is ok. Have been mulling over an engine replacement over the last week as three is a few vh41- vk45 engines at a very reasonable price when compared to getting this one up and running again. Would be grateful for both advice and opinions as I get on with this

Cheers, Steve

As to what is actually wrong with it well- here is what I think has gone on.
I believe a rubber hose has perished on the tail of injector 4 which has in turn soaked its plug with petrol. This has caused a short that drained the battery flat and possibly cracked the injector with heat. With the charger hooked up to the battery there was enough current and heat to cause the plug and injector to sizzle and smoke so it is almost unbelievable to me that this car wasn’t a smoking shell at Ohakune. I have removed the injectors over the weekend and had to fish the bottom of two out of the inlet manifold. Damaged the fuel rail at Ohakune mucking with it, managed to seal it off and thump home on 7

Damn, this pretty gangsta.

Ah yes, the old Nissan hosetail injector dramas... I recommend replacing all the rubber EFI hose and all the injector seals and pintle caps ASAP.

It's amazing how bad an engine can run with just a small injector leak.
