  1. Hello everyone on the Forum. New member in the LA area. Just a acquired a ran when parked 1973 Lime, 240 Z. Its was in decent shape for the price. Hope to get it running soon. I have almost no info on the V8 other than what I can find on the internet. Block is from a 1976 C60 truck or bus. Heads look like 882 casting 76cc smog heads. Edlebrock performer intake and Holley 4bbl carb. 4L80 transmission, BM Quick Silver shifter. has no other upgrades that i can tell so far. Hope to learn a lot from the forum. Thanks Dondo-Z
  2. Update, fusible link replaced all power restored. starter still having issues with bendix gear. its jumping out but grinding the fly wheel. Will remove have tested and replaced.
  3. I recently purchased a "ran when parked" 73 with a 350 swap. auto trans. I installed a known good battery and when i turned the ignition switch, the starter would spin but the bendix would not engage. I disconnected battery and then I took a long prybar and taped the starter and starter solenoid. Reconnected power, then I no longer had power at the ignition switch. I have 12.4V at the starter. I have continuity from the "S" terminal to IGN SW BY wire. But I have no 12V at the IGN SW RW wire. or anywhere really. not at the fuse box either. I found the a fusible link that is not connected to anything located near the starter. The connector is broken. is this still used in a V8 swap? Momentarily touching this to the postive starter terminal shows no change. I am using earlywire.JPG (2800×2031) (airmayer.com) for tracing wires. Where should I expect 12V when the car is in off? ACC? ON? I have been staring at this diagram and will be testing W at the fuse box after repairing the fusible link and connecting it to the starter terminal. unless for some reason this is not used anymore. Thanks for any help. I can use a meter and test light and do have mid level mechanical experience. will get photos up in the morning, Thanks Dondo-Z
