After installing motor an transmission I 1983 datsun 280Zx car won't start could this bhai e the timing needs settinh


Sure, if timing is way off it may not start. Do static timing adjust, check for spark and basic timing using a timing light while cranking. This will tell if you are in the ballpark, and also if you have spark at all. If no spark, test coil, etc.

280zx turbo dies after it warms up


It is most likely you ignition control module, thats what is was with mine. It is located on the ignition coil not the distributor as in some zcar models. I bought mine for about 160 bucks, but before you go out and purchase one i would try cleaning the connection if it is corroded. If it is not corroded then you really cannot clean it and need a new one.

I have a Datsun/Nissan 280ZX non-turbo (Not a 210)


Have the thermostat tested first. You can do that by observing if the fan turns on when the fan exceeds your normal running temperature. You may want to check the radiator cap it may be worn out that some steam may come out through it causing temperature to increase in the process.

#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.
