Fuel Pumps

I think you may have underestimated the size of the pump you need, the one you have installed is rated at 20 gallons per hour. The one you have removed looks like the Carter 70 gallon per hour pump which although noisy is spec’ed right for an L28 with side drafts and a cam. The problem is timing whe...

Rusty 240Z

I almost brought that car 11 years ago off a guy in Blenheim, it looked stunning on Trademe but when I got there to drive it home I discovered how rusty it was. I bailed on the sale and got bad feedback even though the owner agreed and accepted that the car was in poor shape.

That looks like Hugh Pepper's project from 7 or 8 years ago, don’t believe if was ever run.
When I saw it last it was in a 280ZX 2 seater with a half cage.

You could have a franken motor there.
