Datsun 280Z - 3.1L Stroker Starts - New Jets

Here is a new video of the Z starting. I got the jetting worked out and the ITG's on. I took it for it's first successful drive tonight. That video will be up shortly.

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.
