Try tapping your starter motor and solenoid gently with a hammer. If the brushes or contacts are worn out this will give you a few more starts. Remember to only tap on s solid part and stay well clear of the electrical connections or you will damage something. If that doesn't work you have to start troubleshooting by testing for a voltage on the solenoid when you turn the key on to the start position and work back from there.

Probably same. Datsuns are famous for keeping the same carburetors (and other parts, as well) with only minor year to year modifications. My '79 Datsun pickup 620, right now has a carb from a '73 Datsun 620 parts truck, runs okay-for a hitachi.
Check ebay for new, remanufactured, or used- pretty sure they would have a lot of carbs for your car. The best place to buy new or remanned carburetors, especially for our older datsuns, is Very nicely planned (and huge!)catalog, too, with easy access.
Don't know about your 280Z, but with the 620's 2.0Liter engine(L20B), weber carburetors are all the rage now for them. They are excellent carburetors and very reliable, even claim to increase mileage over stock, but for $250, I guess I'll have to motor on with the old hitachi a bit longer.

I am not getting any fuel to the engine. The fuel pump could be bad or there is not any electricity going to the fuel pump..Is there a fuse to the fuel pump on a 1978 datsun 280Z?

No dont think so as the pump is fitted to the engine isent it
if not and there is no pump on engine or on eletric one under the bonnet then it must be in the tank .
(But in 78 they were on engine)
Find pump in elect pump put feed wire to pump and it should (tick) if Man pump then take off and get recoed.

Vehicle Just will Cut off when driving.

There are two computers under teh dash of the drivers side, one is the CECU (main computer) and the other above it is the fuel injection computer.

I am having the same problem. Did replacing the ignition power transistor on coil or the crank angle sensor on the distributor fix your problem?

You can start the car and use a hair dryer to blow some hot air on different components to see if it will fail.

Here is a factory service manual for reference:

Hope this helps!

How do i check my EFI Relay?

Buy a new relay or switch one, then pull one at a time pulg in the new one to find out wich one isn't working.Just because there's power to it doesn't mean anything,it could be that the contacts are burnt together and theirfore not giving you the "injector pause" good luck.
