    ROM bins for L28ET 1982 ECCS

    I'm very interested in that timing map as well. Looking forward to what you do with this.

    Wow... I'm surprised someone didn't do this years ago. (maybe some did, just weren't interested in sharing) Pretty cool, I think. Thanks for sharing!

    Where this tube belongs?

    That's almost correct... Your center vent section is backwards (and upside down I think) - that small rectangular vent showing should be facing the front of the dash. It's easier to put that in place after the dash is installed.

    Here's an example of the other vent I was referring to: https://www.ebay.com/itm/70-78-DATSUN-240Z-260Z-280Z-UNDER-DASH-FRESH-AIR-VENT-WITH-PUSH-PULL-OPEN-CLOSE/221205489995?hash=item3380dfe94b:g:kFAAAOxyQj9RTxSD:sc:USPSFirstClass!85281!US!-1 It mounts under the steering column (and apparently there is one under the glove compartment as well...). There are very good diagrams in the A/C FSM section that "jhm" linked above. They show the ductwork and all of the vents available for models with factory A/C installed near the end of the section. I've seen those caps on the small tubing outlet before and I'm wondering if that's how the non-A/C models were equipped.

    That's out of a 260Z/280Z dash. It's a "Tee" fitting that delivers vent and/or A/C air to a vent mounted under the steering column. Mine is still up there under the dash but I doubt I can get a picture of it in place... The duct work should be pictured or described in the Factory Service Manual for the 260Z and the US 280Z (at least the '75 and '76 280Z models here in the States). I can't remember if that is a "drivers side only" thing or if there are similar vents on driver and passenger sides - it's been along time since I've seen complete stock ductwork and vent pieces - I haven't ever fully reassembled mine even though I think I still have all the pieces...
  6. No, the Stance USA threaded adapter is not pre-cut for an S30 front hub. If you are welding to the hub, you'd need to notch the adapter as required.

    Blower Motor Upgrade (Kia Sportage)

    The stock plug on the '74-'76 fits the Kia blower without modification. (I'm assuming the '77-'78 are the same but I don't know for certain) . It has the same "T" configuration 2-pin plug and polarity is correct. Also, there is no way the Kia blower we're talking about will fit right in the stock '74-'76 blower housing. The squirrel cage is slightly larger than the stock opening. The opening needs to be trimmed to get the squirrel cage in.

    Turn Signals - Key Off?

    Flashers do, turn signals do not.
  9. That's what I do. Kinda tough to do alone - get some help. Lube helps too.
  10. You have the wrong collar for your clutch package. If it were correct, the fork position would be pushing the slave cylinder push rod all the way back in (like you're showing you can do with your fingers in the video) - or nearly so. You need a longer collar for your throw out bearing. NewZed hit the nail on the head - the collar needs to be correct for the clutch package (pressure plate height (or thickness))
  11. That spindle pin tool is probably NOT going to help in this situation. I'm with Jester, use a "sawzall" (recriprocating saw - $20 at Harbor Freight if you don't have one) and cut the spindle pin in two places between the control arm and the hub. Then you can figure out a way to get what's left of the spindle out of the hub section. Much easier to press, beat, or air hammer out without the control arm in the way. You're going to burn out the bushings in the control arm so there's no reason to push them out of there... The spindle pin is fairly soft steel so it's not difficult to cut through with a good bi-metal blade.

    240z reproduction dash

    We've known the guys from Vintage Spirit Garage for years. They are solid dudes, been around for a long time, have turned out some awesome projects, and are deeply involved in the Nissan/Datsun community in California. We've had nothing but good experiences. I was actually a bit annoyed by much of the thread on ClassicZcars... BJSZED - Have you installed your gauges yet? How do they fit?

    Wanted, late 260z manual transmission pedal box

    The pedals and peddle box are the same for all 1974, 1975, and 1976 Z cars. IDK what changed with the '77-'78 280Z's, but '74-'76 are interchangable.

    L28et swap not starting/staying on

    Oh... You have a REAL '81 CAS? Doesn't matter - input to the ECU is the same as with the '82-'83 optical CAS. You can use an Auto ECU with a manual transmission and vice-versa. The difference between the ECU's has little to do with the EFI and more to do with the transmission lock-out (safety feature on the 280ZX). And yes, I've used an '82-'83 ECU on an '81 harness for testing purposes and it works. If you leave the '82-'83 ECU on the '81 harness, you need to jumper out the dropping resistors. If you're getting power to each injector, the dropping resistors are good. There is one resistor for each injector.
