    Bit of a zombie post here, but I'm pretty sure what you're looking at is bulk-feed dog food.

    78 280Z - no injector pulse

    I'm starting this thread as a bit of a placeholder, moving this issue out of my old exhaust manifold/status thread since it's likely I'll need help.

    The background is listed in the exhaust thread,...

    Seems unlikely unless some mice got into it while it was sitting. Haven't seen any evidence of that, but I'll go over it to be sure. I'll check pin1 and see what kind of reading I get.

    OK. There was spark when checking by pulling the boot away from the plug, but I'll check it again to be sure. I'll take a look at any connections running from the coil. I assume that's standard...

    Holy hell, things have been a mess. Let's see if we can catch up on where we stand.

    The car has been at the same garage for over a year at this point. Once winter...

    The G3 (or generic equivalent) works perfectly on my 78, smack in the middle of the tank to pump line.

    The delphi/delco/generic silver pump with white ends does work - I have one and it's just...

    I had a feeling we'd break some, so I ordered a full set of studs from MSA when I got the exhaust. I was hopeful that none would break off so far in that they couldn't just have a bolt head welded...

    Bit of a follow-up on this, for those that are curious.

    I still do not have the car back. We pulled the manifolds and found that the #1 stud was previously broken off deep inside the head by the...

    I'd think a little alcohol and a cotton swab would probably work well for cleaning the gauge face. I've never tried it on these gauges, but it worked when I swapped the cluster in my F150.

    Exhaust being sucked into the cabin thru the hatch, possibly? I know rolling the windows down will often make the effect worse.

    It's possible that you have a fuel smell under the hood - rolling...

    Sad day, but it sounds like she'll be loved where she's going. And the whole time it's on the highway on that car carrier, every few miles someone will catch a glimpse of her and say "wow."

    Sounds like tank rust for sure, clogging the pump inlet or the fuel filter/lines. Been there, done that.

    Pop the bolt out of the bottom of the tank and see if you get any rust. Depending on how...

    Marine/boat paint seems to be the way to go. Interlux Brightside is one of the more popular options. The downside to it is that it's not available in as many colors and I don't think it can be...
