  1. Looking for a lonewolf intake manifold or a custom substitute. Appearance is not a concern. Will pay the correct price for the part. Thanks guys!
  2. I need an exhaust manifold from an l28et, distributor, oil lines, oil pan, and possibly megasquirt or some aftermarket ecu but I doubt anyone is selling. Let me know!!
  3. I'll take photos today. I had purchased new rockers for the new cam and kept the old rockers in order in case I needed to go back to the old cam. They are in good shape and will be back on the lobes they came from.
  4. Newzed hit the nail on the head. Injectors were stuck open. Took a little head scratching and plenty of wtf's but after changing the dropping resistors out for another set and the ignition transistor (not sure if that's the actual name) and cleaning all wiring harness grounds the problem is fixed. Now, after I ran the car, I wiped out the new schneider cam....so back went in the old stock cam, only to find the rockers hit the top of the valve springs. Is there supposed to be a shim under the valve springs or did my machine shop add these without me knowing?
  5. Hello all. A few specifics first. I just got finished rebuilding my n42 head n42 block with schnieder 270-80f cam. Stock bosch e.f.i., stock injectors, pallnet fuel rail, 6-1 header, head shaved, kameari adjustable cam pulley. Now the issue is I am trying to get it to start (it ran on all of this before engine rebuild) and it will only start with the fuel pump unplugged and when the fuel pressure gauge hits 0. I want to properly break in the cam so I only let it run for a second or 2 and as soon as I plugged the pump back in it died. My thought is time get an adjustable fuel pressure
  6. Has anyone else noticed how many extremely clean z's there are on instagram from the middle east? I follow along bunch of pages from there and theyou have some of the cleanest original cars around!
  7. Thank you guys for your response! I'll respond when I'm home from work and give it another shot. If not I saw jegs sells a 4 wheel one for a reasonable price
  8. I am rebuilding my l28 from my 78 280z, and I seem to be lost on how to mount it to the engine stand I purchased. Yes, there is a good possibility I am clearly over looking something, but I can't seem to get it! Feel free to ridicule me, as long as you help me figure it out. I have done top end rebuilds before but never needed to put an engine on a stand to do the bottom end. Hopefully you don't look at this as foolish and pass it by! The stand is an autocraft from advance auto and is very similar to the 3 legged autozone and harbor freight ones if anyone has any direct experience.
  9. I need a 280z headlight switch, mine is all kinds of messed up and pops the running light fuse immediately upon turning the knob. Josh!
  10. My center console is garbage and Im looking for a decent servicable one. Doesnt have to be perfect but I prefer it to not be all cracked up like mine lol. Thanks, Josh
  11. SI have a v8 280z that i have for sale right now (craigslist only my 20 dollar posting subscription ran out ill give you the link if you want to check it out) and I originally wanted something newer and was going to dump both of my cars and get a 90's 300zx. But ive decided Ive owned my z for 5 years and I know how to work on these cars so why not make a super cool daily drver. ANYWAYS... If someone is looking for a v8 z and would want to trade there series one STOCK Z (depending on condition a little cash on top) I would be more than happy!! Just looking for something really stock, pref
  12. I so badly need an 82 l28et distributer, used and cheap but working condition please
  13. *I forgot to mention the car has a violent backfire issue when decelerating in gear. I did some reading on that and mostly found everyone saying its okay just run it that way but when I decelerate for 5+ seconds at 1500 or more rpms I get what sounds like somebody shooting a .44 handgun out of my exhaust.* *Also when I press on the throttle very slightly while driving around, I dont get a consistent amount of power. Its very minimal, and if I'm not paying attention its barely even noticeable but it will deliver power then hesitate then power then hesitate.* Gollum- Yes the afm
  14. Well yes that is all you need on the coil bracket. I need to go check on the other questions for you before I can answer them.
  15. So I will preface by saying, 1978 280z, rebuilt 1982 F54 with a new datsun parts llc p90a head, o.g. ECCS efi, new-ish stock injectors, turbonetics t3/t4 new motorsport auto AFM, new walbro 255 fuel pump, new BEGI rrfpr. The engine is missing a few things, cold start valve, carbon canistor, and the VAC has all the ports plugged. The engine runs O.K. but I have a few issues. 1. Idle- It idles at nothing but 1k rpms which is too high. Try to set it any lower and it jumps all over the place and wants to die. At 1k it sits right at vac on my boost/vac gauge and sounds pretty nice. I thought
