280Zx Fuel Tank Into 73 240Z

Recommended Posts

Hey Chaps 

 

Happy cruzing long weekend

 

Just doing some digging and discussing with a few people in the Zd world and we cam across the question would the 280zx fuel tank bolt up to a 73 240Z. 

 

Now you may ask why and the short answer is L28 injected conversion in the 73 and we were discussing fuel pumps and the 280zx fuel pump in located in the tank. So would be less hassle to rather putting in a surge tank and so on. 

 

Looking forward to the feedback and past experiences 

 

Cheers,

 

Youhan

280Z (not ZX) tanks are sort after in the US for fuel injection conversions. But the 280z has a different tyre well to a earlier car so might make it difficult to fit a tank designed for a more accommodative spare wheel area.

Hi

 

 

FWIW series 1 280ZX runs an external fuel pump.

Pretty easy to fab up a bracket and fit the pump and pressure reg under the back of an S30, well it was on my '77 bus.

 

You will need a fuel line adaptor as (from memory) the pump is 3/8 and the tank is 1/4, or is 1/2 & 3/8.

I would also recomend fitting a small fuel filter in the line before the pump. I had crap in the tank that caused a few issues.

 

Attached is a dodgy photo of the bracke bin place.

 

If you wanted to come for a drive to Hornsby more than happy to show and tell.

 

Cheers

Thanks Guys

 

I will need to get my hands on a 280z fuel tank and see how I go fitting it up, probably would need some modifications.

 

PB would be great to have a sticky beak to get an I idea
