Im after a gasket/repair kit for my 1982 280zx hitachi A/C compressor..
Its working fine but has a small oil leak + a bearing/grinding noise when switched on..
searched and googled.. but cant find anything..

Might be worth swinging past the local Auto A/C guy and getting the source of the grinding confirmed, is it the clutch unit or the compressor itself ?
Don't forget that with just about any work on the A/C you will be up for a regas afterwards and for that you will most likely need expert help, could be quicker and more efficient to give them the entire job ?

You should be able to buy the parts from Cold Drive if they are available. http://ishop.cooldrive.com.au/
The grinding sound is not good. The compressor could be seized or seizing.
Will need to be re-gassed for sure

I ended up fitting a Unicla compressor (or a more common brand Sanden will do) on my 260 which I assume will also fit a 280ZX but it looks like the ports come out the rear whereas mine out the top

280zx has got quit a lot of room.. Maybe with a 90 degree bend on the pipe it will be no problem.
