  1. Yeah I realize how dumb it was to fully install them without testing first. Ill try the 9V battery thing to see if it helps. I also got managed to get them replaced by the seller so hopefully the next set will work properly. I also emptied the fuel tank, since it has been sitting for a couple of months and will change the fuel filter again just to be sure. Thanks for the suggestions!
  2. just pulled the fuel rail and noticed the other injectors are leaking but only one is spraying. I have the harness disconnected and only turned on the fuel pump, if that makes any difference.
  3. I bought a set of remanufactured injectors. I have an electric fuel pump that i have to switch on before i start the engine. I noticed when I pulled the plugs that one of my cylinders is flooded with fuel, I pulled the injector and turned the pump on and it just constantly sprays fuel. Could it be a faulty injector or will the injector start to fire properly once I start the engine? How do I properly troubleshoot this?
  4. I finally got it out with a vise after 2 days of heating and soaking, didnt have to drill or weld anything. Feels great! Thanks guys!
  5. Damn this is going to be much more of a pain than I thought it would be. I got the majority of the rust off using a center punch and scraping the rest with a razor. I kinda damaged the thread on the bolt by trying to turn it with a vise and my stud extractor, so the welded nut might be out of the question, I also dont want to risk welding the block surface since I have no experience welding anything. I might just have to pull the block out if nothing else works. Thanks for the help!
  6. Rusted head bolt snapped. That thing looks welded onto the block, its probably just rust accumulating and hardened. What do? Taking the block out to a machine shop is going to be a last resort. I'm currently soaking it in pb blaster to see if I can loosen it up. Any suggestions on the best way to get this thing out?
  7. Yeah pretty much. I hope it wont be a problem, I guess I'll find out once I get it running again. Thanks!
  8. I turned the cam to get the piston at TDC in order to mark the timing chain position before I removed the head for easier reassembly. I'm just worried that I messed up my oil pump, because I turned it at least 10 times in the wrong direction.
  9. Today was my first attempt to remove the cylinder head. The idiot that I am forgot that I should turn the cam clockwise. I made several counterclockwise turns. Did I mess up my oil pump? I drained all the oil before doing any of this.
  10. I'm looking into gettin a ceramic coated header and the performance exhaust system for my 77 280z, I'm using ms2 and have an o2 sensor welded into my exhaust pipe. The headers dont come with an o2 bung. Should I buy the coated header and weld a bung into the collector pipe? It seems like a bad idea and might ruin the ceramic coating, or should I buy an uncoated on and and coat it myself after I weld the bung in? Thanks!
  11. Thanks for the reply! I think ill replace the seal anyways, then refill the transmission with new oil. Is there a lubricant you can recommend for this?
  12. I recently fixed an engine oil leak that made a mess all around the underside of my 77 280z. After a few months of the leak stopping I noticed that my transmission is also leaking at the rear where it meets the the driveshaft. I also noticed it only leaks when I drive it. Is this because the transmission might be overfilled? Or could it be a bad seal? If I have to remove the driveshaft, what's the best way to do it? I'll add some pics, you can see the oil drip and splatter all over the car. Thanks!
  13. Well I'll see what I can do about this. Really appreciate the help!
  14. I didnt drive the car at all, I let it idle and it smells like burnt oil. Its idling at 500 rpm, normally it was at 700-800. It sounds more like a tick in the video, but it actually sounds like clanking metal
  15. 77 280z EFI. Its definitely oil, it's a wet black deposit, was not there before I had this problem.
