  1. Yes screw/bolt mounted to the fender well and a second wire from the bracket itself also screwed to the fender well.
  2. OK, can't afford a mega squirt solution. I am back to where I started. I lost everything when I removed the 78 280Z ignition/transistor box that was on the passenger side under the dash, apparently everything was running through that and it must of taken everything out. I lost all signal from the Distributor and the ECU was no longer triggering the injectors. I got ahold of another 83 ECU and got a new Optical module from Rock Auto for the distributor, I wired the new ECU pin 5 output directly to the 280ZX exciter/transistor, the injectors work again so that tells me the new optical module is
  3. I guess I am Calorically Challenged LOL, I need a 280Z seat belt extender, anybody know if they are available anywhere or what extender might possibly fit the 240-280Z?? Thanks Greg
  4. Thank you, I will stop by the shop in the morning and give them this info and see what we have from there, I'll let you know the results and take more pictures.
  5. Happy New year, Finally got a chance to get to the shop and try a few things. we tried a remote start and put a 12v source to the positive coil because we were not reading 12V at the coil while cranking but we do have 12V with ignition on. Now we seem to be going backwards as now we no longer have the 0-5V pulse on the yellow wire on the ignitor or the blue wire as I mentioned in my post above. we looked on the passenger side and yes there is a "black box ignition/transistor"thing that another forum suggests that I check. Now wasn't this box for the 280Z? Is it still need
  6. Hi, Thank you for your responses, I am headed to the shop to try a few other things today. Yes the black/white wire is connected to the ignitor spade connector and I have a yellow wire connected to the other spade connector. there is a B/W wire from the ignitor going to the + coil terminal. There is a blue wire on the coil - terminal Ignition in on position 12 volts present at + coil terminal Cranking using an analog volt meter on 0-5V scale the yellow wire is receiving a signal, jumps from 0 to 5V Some people say it should be a yellow/white wire but all I have in
  7. Thanks, but Distributor has not been removed, Still don't know what to do, Nobody can verify my wires or why I have signal/voltage swing on both the yellow and the blue wire. I'll keep searching to see if I can find something, running out of google search topics though.
  8. I am at a lost trying to figure why I can't get any spark on my turbo swap project. I am putting an 83 turbo motor in my 78 280Z. I have ruled out the distributor as I am getting both high and low signal to the ECU computer, I can hear the injectors clicking while cranking, I have correct fuel pressure. I have changed out the coil and even tried the GM HEI module swap in place of the ignitor transistor. I have the Black/White wire with 12V connected to the coil+, the blue wire from the ignitor to the coil- terminal. I have a yellow wire, not a yellow/white wire which most people say i should h
  9. well don't have the money to go with a different ECU. I think either mount it through Radiator support in front of radiator ,intercooler, condenser or cut fender well and fab a shelf maybe. I know there are pictures around but the search is not working keep getting server error message.
  10. Started to put together my long stalled turbo swap in the 78 280Z and need some advice and pictures on where did you mount your AFM. I am keeping the AC and have an Intercooler so that doesn't leave much real estate for the Big AFM
  11. My gallery is gone, I just looked at all 62 listed and Mine is not there. I noticed that some old timers albums now say zero images? granted it probably been a few years since I added pictures but now it is gone. was this when we had to change systems?
  12. Exact same thing is happening to me, did you figure out the problem?
  13. I guess this is not an easy answer as nobody has even responded yet
