  1. oh wow, thanks. I was way off then, I was way by the passenger footwell area.
  2. ok so I have spark, I can prime the fuel system in the accessory position, the fuel pressure gauge will peak at 36psi, sometimes it'll hold it during cranking, sometimes it won't, I'm not sure how the fuel relief is setup on these cars. but the fuel pump definitely isn't running on the "on" or "start" position. So I went back to the ignition switch, I have constant 12.5v from the White/red wire, in the ignition Acc position, i'm getting 12,5v there too, that's the blue/red wire, in the ON position, I'm getting the 12.5V there also. from the switch to the fuse box, and leaving the fuse box. During starting phase, the black/yellow wire is reading 12.5V also. So assuming the wiring isn't mixed matched. the ignition switch checks out as functional. The schematic I have doesn't identify the colors. No i'm trying to figure out which is the Fuel pump control relay and which is the fuel pump relay, so i can start testing there. I see 4 relays on that bracket Which is which? and here's my schematic sheet i'm working with
  3. I have a 1978 280Z, I'm new to the Z and this platform and looking to see what direction to start diagnosing this. So i'm driving one day, and car just dies. It will turn the engine over, but won't start. it appears everything electrical if off when the key in in the "On" position. then I noticed the switch is working funky, but I haven't had the car long enough to confirm is this is abnormal. but i appears to be working backwards, like everything (gauges,fuel pump etc) turns on when key in the "Acc" position, but turn off when in "ON" So I figure the switch is bad and wanted new keys anyway, ordered new ignition, same problem Where do I go from here? where can I get schematics for these cars I tried manually engaging the starter, with the key in the "acc" position, to see if it'll run since the fuel pump etc is running, but that didn't work :cry
  4. i'm curious what you find out, i have some slop in mine also
  5. Rust free datsun 1978 280z worth?

    comes down to location really and what other examples in your area. the further away from the west coast, the price goes up. I don't believe there such thing as a rust free datsun, but rather how much rust you're willing to deal with, But if it is what he says it is, then I think the price is fair. get underneath the car, that determines the price.
  6. 280Z Restomod Progress

    nice work, i'm curious what it weighs. I'm torn between a Z on a diet vs a clean resto. both opposite sides of the spectrum
