260Z dies under accleration

Recommended Posts

Hey fellas! So I'm working on getting my 260Z up and running for the first time in 10yrs. I have a couple issues I'm hoping you guys can help me out with.

 

First: I got it to start for the first time yesterday and there is a substantial amount of white smoke coming from the exhaust. Any ideas on the cause of that or what to check? 

 

Second: I've adjusted the carb so it idles well...ish right now, but as soon as I give it any gas it sputters and dies. I just ordered a new fuel filter but any other causes I should look at?

 

Third: On the chance I need to get the engine rebuilt, any ideas on what I should expect to pay for a quality job?

 

Thanks so much for any help you're able give.

Did you clean and/or rebuild the carbs?  After ten years they're probably all gummed up inside.
