  1. ya, i get spark from coil --->dizzy-->wires.. But i think it has something to do with the efi not spraying i don't hear it.. pumps works pushes gas up to the 2 the fuel rail then it looks like gas stops moving forward but pressure is still building up.. I also think that maybe has something to do with the efi relayspend today trying to figure out were and if it does need a efi relay or is there a back yard process just to get it running so i can get it to my house.. Thanks
  2. Hi I have just recently blown my head gasket on my 23 z, and had a 79 parts car. So far I've swapped out the good eng and tranny into my 72. I am and also have swapped out the eng wiring harness and some internal harnesses. Everything from my 79 is efi. The problem I am having is I can't get it to run it cranks, but i don't think injectors are firing. I've used a clear tube to see if fuel was being delivered and it looks like it stops at the fuel rails but theres alot of pressure build up. Also I have heard to twice what might sound like it wants to fire. Read the EFI bible and I am having a hard time locating the efi relay .. Do i need this or is there a way I can work around anything if anything just to get my baby Z on the road again. So far 1 week and frustrated as hell:evil: .. Thanks in advance

  7. Check the 12v to the switch and see whats up. The ignition switch may be worn out. There should be an overflow bottle which should be filled with water regardless of the radiator level. When the cap pops, it sends the water into the bottle but as soon as things simmer down it sucks the water back up. What you can do is put your hand on the rubber hose from the thermostat to the radiator or the top of the radiator to see if it gets hot when the thermostat opens. If it doesn't get hot and the gauge is getting really high then replace the thermostat, its really easy, just undo those two bolts on the top of the thermostat housing and pop in a new one, and have a new gasket ready for it too. Other than that, make sure the gauge reads properly and stuff. If you're really wanting to dig in you can pull the radiator out and flush it with some sort of radiator cleaner or just use a water hose. Sometimes that bottom hose on the passenger side gets clogged with gunk and impedes the flow.

  8. Thanks for the feed back but not sure which dizzy u talking about. i know the 78-79 has the magnetic blocks kinda shape like a L. and the zx has no L shape just looks like a ninja star which is the current install. hears the magnetic ones give bigger and hotter spark. I will try them out an compare with feed back next week
