  1. Hello all, attached is a pic from Blue's tips. I am jerry rigging my own EFI fusible link wiring because you can't find them anymore. Looking at getting 2 green fusible link wires, splicing them together, then bullet connectoring them to the positive battery terminal cable. I have the amperage in this pic, I just need to know what gauge wire/bullet connector to get for 40 amps. Thanks
  2. Not completely sure. Just got this 1978 280z as my first car a few weeks ago and learning what the p/o deleted/had missing. I know I put both linkages on that plug I'm holding, but how will I connect them to the battery? Do I just get a fusible link cable with the round head to go to the terminal that sits under the negative battery cable, or do I get a positive battery cable with a pigtail to connect into if I splice the links into a bullet connector end? Thanks for the help so far btw , Kinda just throwing myself into the wrenching.
  3. Actually, are you able to link the green connector I need if you found it? I can't find anything like it? Is it just like the normal fusible link connectors with the prong cover on each side?
  4. Thank you, I'll look online for those green connections.
  5. Just need some clarification on the wire that is being held. It doesn't look like it attaches to the fuse relays. Also, do I need special battery cables? The wiring diagram says that the battery connects to the fusible links, but I'm not sure how they do.
  6. Hello all, Previous owner of my 1978 280z decide to rip out all of the vacuum/emission parts. This includes Charcoal can, tubing for that, EGR, etc. He also upgraded to a pallnet fuel rail, removing the cold start valve and AAR. I am going back and forth on whether or not to just leave it how it is, and plug the vacuum line connections, or to put the vacuum back. I don't need to pass emissions, but would like to hear any advice or opinions on keeping it removed or putting it back. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hello Everyone, Putting the engine back together on my 1978 280z. Backtracking through the FSM's section on engine removal, I have come to a step marked as "remove the wire to the distributor condenser connector." I have the female bullet connector on my wiring harness, but can't find what/where the distributor condenser is. Looking online, I find basic distributor condensers, but none have the bullet connector that needs to be plugged in. Thanks in advance.
  8. As the title says, the 1978 280z I bought has the block in, with an upgraded, protunerz fuel rail. The previous owner deleted the cold start valve and some type of air sensor? I have most of the engine components and engine bay harness back into the car. I am going to buy a new FPR, and convert the engine bay to 6AN lines. But now my question: What get's deleted when you put a modern fuel rail in, but keep the stock ECU? Is that air sensor he removed ok to stay off? What else stays/goes?
  9. Hello All, Just had a quick Q. Recently picked up a project Z, the block is in, but the rest of the engine components are out. The seller just handed me a huge bag of bolts. I'm thinking about just getting a complete bolt kit to replace them, but are there any bolt diagrams/references to show what bolt and/or bolt # goes? Thanks in advance.
  10. Thank you, I also ordered Wick Humble's How to restore your Datsun Z-Car book.
  11. Hello all, buying a 1978 280z this weekend. The owner recently rebuild the engine, and has bolted it in, but connected nothing else. I can do the wiring harness, have experience with that, but this will be my first "engine install." Are there any diagrams or charts that show the connections needed, like tubing and wiring, that are needed to start the engine? Or should I just look at pictures of a stock engine?
  12. Hello all, The owner before me converted from efi to dual carbs. I plan on adding back the efi with this intake/fuel rail from protunerz: https://protunerz.com/collections/frontpage/products/l-series-intake-manifold-fuel-rail-75mm-throttle-body Along with a high pressure fuel pump, what else do I need to convert back to efi? Did he have to take out the whole ecu?

  14. Awesome, thanks again! I might just do exactly what you did here.
  15. Thank you for the reply! I'm still fairly new to datsuns, I just a stock l24 in the 240z. Is that an L series? Also, what would you recommend instead of this? Is a flat shroud ok?
