    My new 1975 Datsun 280z project!

    I'm having some trouble getting my 280z running. I have had the engine soaking for months and when I try to turn it over it makes a loud click noise and then stops. If anyone could help me try to figure this out it would be appreciated.

    I was using the rust penetrant to clean out the cylinders. The cylinder walls are rusted to the pistons. And thanks for the help and the links!

    I did not make this chart but I found it to be very helpful so I figured I'd post it in here in case it helps anyone else!

    I made some progress yesterday, I refilled all the cylinders with a rust penatrating fluid to try and help it come loose and replaced some old lines. I replaced the hose going into the side of the valve cover and the fuel line that goes into the top of the fuel filter. I will probably need to replace some others soon but these two were especially bad.

    So I am new to the forum and I figured I would post to show the process of restoring my new Datsun and hopefully get some help and good tips from other members as I go! I recently bought this and it is my first Datsun! The car was sitting since 1991 before I bought it and right before it was parked it was inspected and serviced and has paperwork to prove it that i found in the car, but the previous owner also left it sitting outside with the spark plugs out and the hood popped open . I have siphoned out any fluid in the holes and it seems to just be some oil with a little bit of rust in it. So over the next few days/weeks I'll be soaking it to try and make it move free. Fingers crossed that the rings will hopefully be OK!
