I don't want to scare you, but that first 240Z V8 project I mentioned above was so FUBARed up by the previous owner that we ended up pulling it completely apart (shell) and started over. The only part we kept was the engine.

Wow    Thanks for all the info.  I was hoping to temporarily use the rubber line for ease and then switch to SS.  It almost sounded dangerous , the way the po set up the line.  All three lines (I’m assuming return, vapor, gas) follow the same path. I’ll get some picks tomorrow

If you can block the engine up, pull the transmission (leaving the bell housing on the engine) and loosen all of the clamps that hold the fuel line in the tunnel you may be able to move the fuel enough to cut that group of fittings off. Then you can install a A-N hose fitting to hard line adapter on the fuel line. You will have to teach yourself how to make up a SS braided hose ends (fittings). 

 

The other problem you have is that the transmission is actually riding against the fuel line.  The PO cut a piece of the transmission out to clear the fuel line. You will need to address this by re-routing the fuel line away from the transmission.

Thanks for the warning!!!   I ended up just connecting a hose as a temporary use for testing engine start. i ordered a Vincos 20ft 6an an6 nylon and SS Braided lines.  

So now that the gas has stopped leaking, the issue still stands.  But first l want to make sure the car is safe.  The pic is not great but the fuel pump is right by the tank.  The fuel pump was then sliced into two?  And one just isn’t used and the other goes to the oil sender switch and then an output? from the sender to the relay I set up temporarily.  I hope the pictures are clear

I'm really starting to think this is a simple carb issue.  Have you pulled it apart and inspected it since you bought the car? 

 

I think you said that the accelerator pumps were pushing fuel; but there still could be any number of issues with the carb causing your problem, most solved quite easily.....dirty/plugged jets, incorrect float settings, etc.  A carb rebuild kit is very cheap, and a good idea on any used car that's been through multiple POs.

 

Oftentimes, the entire fuel system (from tank to carb) is full of dirt, crud and rust; and your car will never run correctly until all that crap is cleaned out.

I ordered a new ignition switch.  Hoping that it’s something in there that’s not clicking. 

 

In the interim,   I know there is a lot of info out there regarding painless wiring but I Can’t find one information that  is relevant to my 2/71 240z. Everything is either EZ wiring from Australia with right handed drive as well as partial connections.  Most of the time I see different connections being made.  Worst is that I’ve downloaded all of the wiring that I could find but there are still wires that do t match the colors in the schematic.  At this point I believe the ignition is set, the lights go on and off but the turn signals don’t work individuality....all four blinkers are going off.  If there is a comprehensive article out there for a painless wire 10101,I would be SOOOOOOO grateful.  I just want the turn signals to work and the brakes so I can drive
