  4. Turbo '77 280z

    Thanks, its actually just a generic wheel that I had laying around but its a lot nicer than the factory wheel that was on it.
  5. Turbo '77 280z

    For sale is a 1977 Datsun 280z that has been my project car for the last couple years but its now time to move to the next project. The car is located in Grensburg, IN. The following is a breakdown of the car: Body: -primer flat black paint -front and rear bumpers are shaved -urethane front air dam -'82 turbo swastika wheels Engine -'82 l28et (originally from 280zx turbo) -palnet smooth bore fuel rail -440cc fuel injectors -walbro 255lph fuel pump -n42 non egr intake manifold -skyline r33 water cooled turbo -huge front mount intercooler with piping -'82 borg warner t5 five speed transmission ECM -megasquirt MS1v2.2 standalone ECM -DIY autotune relay board -custom engine wiring harness -Fusible links have been upgraded to Maxi fuses (picture of engine bay is older and doesn't show this) Interior -AEM wide band O2 gauge -boost gauge -oil pressure gauge -pioneer stereo -jeep Cherokee leather seats The car runs and drives great and is tuned to 14psi. I only run 10psi to keep things on the safe side. The car is not without its issues though. If I were planning to keep it I would try to tune it more (which is easily done with a labtop and megatune). The rear bumper could be sanded a lot more to make it look better in my opinion. There is rust in the normal Datsun areas like under the battery and in the passenger floor board. The battery tray is pretty bad. This is an extremely fun car to drive an always gets a ton of attention wherever it goes. I'm asking 5,500 for the car. Call or text (812)593-4511 or message me here for more details.
  6. rebuilt l28et has no oil flow

    Thanks newzed on catching my mistake. I flipped the direction of the drill and sure enough I got oil to flow. I pumped it until my gauge read around 60psi and the cam was flowing oil. My question now is that when I put the front end back together and cranked the car I still see no pressure. Is the starter motor just to slow to get the oil to flow?
  7. rebuilt l28et has no oil flow

    Oh crap I didn't even take into account the direction I needed to look at the shaft. Thanks I will put it back together and see if I can get a positive response from the pump. Thanks for the response.
  8. rebuilt l28et has no oil flow

    Tonight I made a shaft to spin the oil pump to use a drill on. I took the oil pump shaft out and primed the pump then put the pump back in and spun it with my drill... Still no oil anywhere. So I then took the front of the engine apart to make sure the passages were clear. I took a funnel and poured oil into the oil pump feed passage and then took the oil pan plug out and poured oil down the funnel. The oil poured out of the pan as quickly as I could pour it in. That makes me sure that the oil passage is clear and the pick up tube is fine. I have no clue how the pump refuses to pump oil. Is there any other things that can possibly cause a oil pump to not pump. Both the pumps aren't working. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am sorry to ask so many questions about this but I can't figure it out at all and am completely baffled by the lack of oil pressure with both a new and good used pump. Thanks again guys.
  9. rebuilt l28et has no oil flow

    So I worked on the car today and didnt get any results. I took the pump off and made sure it was full of oil, I also pushed oil down the oil passages to ensure plenty of oil. I then cranked the car and got no oil. I then switched the new pump out for an oil one that I know worked but didnt flow as much as I wanted. I put that pump on and got no oil flow. I then took the oil pan off to check the pick up tube and it was clear and looked good. I put it back together and changed the oil but I still have no oil going anywhere. I cant figure it out as the engine passages are all clean and the pump is brand new. Any idea?
  10. rebuilt l28et has no oil flow

    Yes, the gear is on the crank as well as the oil slinger. The dizzy shaft is all in good shape and all the tolerances checked out, the gear on it is not missing any teeth and has no play in it. I can take the dizzy cap off when I get home to double check that it spins but I am pretty sure it will since everything was in good shape when I installed it.
  11. rebuilt l28et has no oil flow

    To prime the pump I followed the directions in the "how to rebuild your datsun L series". So I put oil in the pump an rotated the gear around to get oil on both sides. Does oil need to be in both the pump and pickup tube? I also pumped oil down the oil galley to the pump when it was installed. I didnt take the galley plug out of the block. I didnt have it hot tanked or anything, just cleaned it and tried to keep it as clean as possible. Maybe I will install the old pump and see if maybe I just got a bad pump.
  12. rebuilt l28et has no oil flow

    One thing I would like to mention is that during tear down there was now gasket between the block and oil pick up tube. Is there suppose to be, I modified a gasket out of my gasket set to put one there but it took a little cutting. I am certain it isnt leaking or allowing air to pass through but i was curious why I found now gasket, Is there one there from factory?
  13. rebuilt l28et has no oil flow

    Hey guys, hopefully someone can lead me in the right direction. I recently rebuilt my l28et that is in my 77 280z. I took my time with the rebuild and checked all the bearing clearances and replaced any and all gaskets. I also cleaned all the oil and coolant passages and made sure to triple check everything during the rebuild. I purchased a new turbo oil pump to ensure that everything in the motor was at least mostly new. Well fastforward and the motor is back in and I am attempting to prime it for first start and break in. I took the oil pressure sending unit out as well as all the spark plugs and oil fill cap. I crank the motor (or have my brother crank it) while the other looks for oil flow through the oil pressure sending unit port as well as oil on the cam. Well we have neither!! I cant figure out what it could be as the oil filter is a new bosch which I have never had problems with bosch filters pre-rebuild. And the pump is brand new and the dizzy shaft gear and pin seem fine. Any ideas would be greatly appriciated. Thanks guys
