Installed new fuel pump. Still no fuel pump noise.
Cleaned up the battery terminals and installed additional grounding straps.
Switched around some of the relays in the engine compartment that are the same. Pulled the EFI relay with the ignition ON, other relays click. Plug it back in and again some other relays click. I guess that means the EFI relay is ok. Fusable linkes have 12v at both sides with ignition on.
Pulled the main plugs off the ECU and they have some electrical grease on them. Looks OK.
Tried starting fluid in the intake manifold and then later into a couple cylinders with the spark plugs out. Still doesn't even fire at all. (no spark)
Finally realize that there is no green light on the ECU which would give some indication that the computer is on. The turbo ECU controls the fuel pump relay as well as the coil.
L28 still won't start at this point. I wrote out where all the pins go using the 1981 Factory Service Manual. I'll check that power is going in at the points needed on the ECU. I think the EFI relay is the primary power source for the ECU. Maybe I can jump power to it as a test.
In the future if anyone is reading this then this image might be useful.
Pin 9, 27, 35 should have 12v power going in to the ECU. If you are using a 1982/83 ECU then pin 114 will also need power. That is the only difference in ECU configuration.
Pin 16 (fuel pump relay) my note says power but it may be that the ECU provides Ground to the fuel pump relay which allows the relay to activate.
Next time I will also be checking for ground at some pins.
There is a lot of competition for web hosting sites. Its hard to up your price when everyone else hovers around $5-7/month. You keep getting more and more storage for the same price.
My hosting site, same price for 12 years but I still only have 3GB of storage. They haven't bumped me up as the years go by. I can get 100GB now for the same price elsewhere but I just don't need that much space.
That is a good idea. That valve you removed usually runs the idle high when the engine is cold and then closes to drop the idle down to normal levels. So for now you won't have that option but the car can still be used. I think its more important to have consistency when the engine is warmed up as you also know.
Just like Flickr, for a real artist it doesn't cost too much to keep a business account going. Flickr is much more streamlined and far fewer ads than Photobucket. Even before PB started throttling bandwidth they were really slow and slammed you with ads.
Free services can always go away or change policies. Nothing lasts forever.
Keep a backup of all your photos locally if you really want them.
I love the art style to your videos. Glad you moved to the area. I was also thinking of one day doing some owner interviews but not quite to that level of detail that you and Petrolicious do. Your work looks good.
Portland has the Bluelake Datsun show coming up in August. Canada has a Classic Japanese car event in July... I think ? I've never been to that one.
