My 280z speed sender never really worked. I swapped the skyline one in and it just reads low but it's consistent.

not sure about the RB20 trans, but the RB25 requires a Navara/D21/Nissan hardbody truck sender. Depending your ratio, you can swap the RB20 skyline gear onto it with a little fab work. Details are on this site. Good luck with the build! I love my RB-Z and will never let it go

Thanks bro I was able to slid the speed gear in the rb20det trans with a little grinding to put the lock bolts thing on!

I cant wait to drive this car! I know the rb25det has electronic speed sensor and the rb20det has the mechanical one. I swapped it on the stock one with a littkle fab just like you said.

 

I had time to play around with the 280z tank some more

Back at it! Got the walbro 255lph mounted up. All I did was mount the pump to some sheet metal I had laying around then mounted the it to some threaded holes(maybe for a optional stock efi pump?) and secured it down with some bolts a had laying around. Datsun/nissan really made this conversion pretty simple.The wiring for (green pos? and blk for ground) it is right there too! Here are some pics and a video. It took like 3 hours.

I installed the gas tank. I was able to reuse the 240z straps and filler neck. I bought new hoses and j bolts from lowes.

I used those an tube adapter fittings on the hard lines for the feed and return. There is a video on how I did it.

I was trying to tie up some loose ends on the fuel system but found a cracked up vapor tank lol. Here's another video.

Installed these LED headlights! I tested them before I installed them. They are bright! I don't recommend the ones with the box on the harness because it didn't it into my headlight housings.

Those looks more like flood lights than a headlight with a proper reflected housing. What does the light pattern look like?

Here is the link to exactly what I bought. Just the middle lights turn on with low beam, pattern unknown yet its been raining everyday since.

I had purchased a half radiator and installed it using stock body bolt holes! This car is so mod friendly! Its a 2 core honda radiator with a shroud and fan. Evo and honda guys swear by them. I sourced info from here and pulled the trigger to try it out for the rb20det weekend warrior/garage queen.

I will document temps and conditions as well. I just couldn't spend 350+ for custom rad + shroud +fan yet. 85 bucks later its installed.
