Anyway, pour oil around camshaft, and closed valve cover and pour in rest of the new oil.
Pour in coolant as well.
Pour in new gas too.
Next thing is ignition check.
Swap to new battery.
Check distributor. Compare with 240z, around distributor is so crowded. It much harder to unlock the distributor cap.
Check to rotor, cap, and inside the distributor. It's looks OK condition.
Finally, turn ignition on! .......................... does not start engine as you expected...
Remove spark plug #1 and put it on the top of valve cover with wired.
Turn ignition to see whether I can see the flash on the spark plug. ...... No spark.
OK, change spark plug wire to NGK RC-NE61, and change coil to MSD Blaster 2. I need to order Blaster 2 bracket. original coil diameter is way too big.
I was puzzled whether I need to put ballast resistor as same as what I had on 240z, but for 280z, I don't need it.
I will double check with wiring map later.
Turn ignition again to see...
