SOURCE: fuel pump on the outside of tank

Use can use a universal pump but you have to look in the book to find out what the fuel pressure was supposed to be of the original pump. I do not have these specs off the top of my head. Once you know what the fuel pressure was supposed to be you can purchase the corresponding pump that is close and mount it in place of the old one. You can also get ones that are adjustable. These are adjustable within reason - say 10-15lbs.

I have a 1983 280 ZX turbo, there is a slight hesitation when accelerating. What can cause this?


if this is a carby engine then the hesitation can be from a faulty power valve in the carby (Carby overhaul) or incorrect timing . It could be an indication that the turbo is not spooling up quickly enough to produce the air required on acceleration Check for any split/loose vacuum hoses that are altering the mixture

I need the torque for all the head bolts on my 1983 datsun 280zx


Check this information for 1983 Datsun 280ZX 2.8L (click over image for zoom)...

Fig. 13: Head bolt torquing sequence-1970-83 models

After repair job, temporarily install and tighten the two center (right and left) cylinder head bolts to 14 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).

Install the camshaft sprocket together with the timing chain onto the camshaft. Make sure that the marks made earlier, line up. If the chain will not stretch over the sprocket, the problem lies in the tensioner. Refer to the Timing Chain removal and installation procedure for the timing procedure, if necessary.

Install the cylinder head bolts. Note that two lengths are used. Tighten the bolts in sequence.
1970-71 models:
Tighten the bolts to 33 ft. lbs. (43 Nm)
Tighten the bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (61 Nm)

1972 models:
Tighten the bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (61 Nm)
Tighten the bolts to 55 ft. lbs. (71 Nm)

1973-83 models:
Tighten the bolts to 30 ft. lbs. (39 Nm)
Tighten the bolts to 44 ft. lbs. (57 Nm)
Tighten the bolts to 54-61 ft. lbs. (70-79 Nm)

To complete the installation, reverse the removal procedures. Adjust the valves to a preliminary COLD clearance of 0.2mm for the intake and 0.25mm for the exhaust. Operate the engine until it is at normal operating temperature, retighten the head bolts (loosen them slightly and retighten to the final torque figure) and adjust the valves to the HOT clearance specifications.

Hope this helps; remember to rating this answer and leave some testimonial comment about this.

1983 nissan 280 zx car back fires when cold


Sounds like you could have an aux air regulator valve, that is not working when it will not work; there is no fast idle cold. Should be around 1500 rpm cold, the car will stall out and pop through the intake when bad. You have a digital volt meter to do some testing with to make sure the mass air flow is working correctly.

Also, c
heck the plugs for how they're burning, check the air filter for good flow, do a compression test and judge from there. Intake backfire is usually caused by running lean or improper timing.

For the 79 model zx, ignition timing was 10 degrees BTDC @ 700rpm
For 80 and up zx, non turbo - 8 degrees BTDC +- 2 degrees @ 700rpm
turbo - 20 degrees BTDC +- 3 degrees @ 700 rpm

Also done with distributor vacuum advance hose removed and plugged.
NOTE:
* BTDC = Before Top Dead Center
* + - = Plus or minus
Hope thos helps; keep us updated.

#1 Spark plug is no burning fuel.


Either your timing chain has jumped a cog, or a valve is stuck or burnt. Best way to check the timing is with a timing light. If the mark jumps all over the place, your chain is no good. To check the valve, do a compression test. Good luck. Let me know how you make out.
