Datsun 280Z w/ L28 3.1L Stroker and Triple Webers
Here is a short video of the Z starting. Just got the idle working right tonight where before it wouldn't idle down. Throttle response is good though it goes lean. I have new jets coming to solve that issue.
Sorry for the crappy video. Can't find the cable I needed and so I had to use some 3rd party app to rip it. For whatever reason, it didn't do widescreen.
Datsun 280Z - 3.1L Stroker - First drive with new jets
Well, this is the first drive with the new jets in. The progression circuit was causing trouble before. My idle jets were too small causing the progression circuit to lean out. Remember: Just because it's CALLED an idle jet doesn't mean it only controls idle. The other thing is that the idle mixture screws don't affect the progression circuit, so if your idle jets are too small, there is no getting around buying new ones.
Now it runs rich, though from here I have a ballpark to start tuning. It's presently got 135 mains, 185 air correction, 60F9 idle jets.
240Z burnout (3.1 stroker)
A decent burnout with a taste of the car's sound at idle. Very quiet muffler in general [Magnaflow], but it does allow the car to open up, especially if you're pegging the rev limiter...
240Z vs. the Ozark Mountains
Some [conservative] horseplay in my 1971 3.1L 240Z before putting my new race motor away for the winter. This is NOT a performance driving video, just some fun on an awesome road.
This is first time I've driven the road, so I'm a little more confident after 3:00. (I found it on Google Earth then trailered my car there.)
Some highlights, since it's not exactly a concise video:
1:55 downhill stretch, crossing Beaver Lake
2:40 more aggressive driving begins
4:00 scared myself a bit
4:40 traffic encountered
5:00 engine vs. open highway

My Datsun 280z car build
A compilation of videos and photos from the last 3 years of building my Datsun 280Z. I've dreamed for so long about driving this thing and now I its better than I could have imagined. Burnout at the end too!
