I swapped the motor from the donor and it turns out it was shot is really bad and they give weird symptons sometimes it ran good/strong but compression test were also flakey
So currently doing a complete overhaul of engine So far done everything myself at home. However the block and head will get sent out to get tested and cleaned .....
Open valve cover have a looksy Ahh what the hell lets take it all off! First time I Do something like this I hope I can put this all back She dont look too good when i pulled out the pistons rings were pretty bent out shape and scorched Took head to machine shop test surfaced a bit all the works ***I WISH I HAD PORTED AND POLISED AT THIS POINT***
I just got the block from machine shop bored .5 mm over honed, acid dipped and magnafluxed. I ordered engine overhaul kit pistons, rings, pins, head/bottom gasket sets, timing chain/guides/tensioner, oil pump, rod/main bearings freeze plugs FALCON GLOBAL ON EBAY ZEDDERS CHECK THEM OUT I CALLED THEM UP THEY MADE A LISTING FROM ME RIGHT THEN AND THERE BUY IT NOW NEXT WEEK AT MY DOOR
these pics are very new i still got pics to upload of the tear down later Block back from machine shop cleaned decked and new core plugs mounted pistons on rods everything nice and tidy got all my tools and oil ready put in the crank new bearings and torqued
Here it is all back together.
I threw on the intake manfiold I was working on the side, and a fuel rail that I tapped out from aluminum extrusion. It helped clean it up some more.
I decided its time to ditch the 30 year old EFI technology and put in a standalone ECU. next page....

nice build. the L28et is definately the way to go. take it easy
Hey thanks for the comment!
I did get the MS2 V3 running. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Just be patient and take your time. It starts up in about 1 or 2 revs and idles strong at about 700 rpms.
Now I just have to figure out the clutch/transmission problem before winter... But its getting cold now so it might not happen until spring :(
Your Z is very clean, I love how sweet that engine looks after that rebuild and those white gauges. Keep up the good work! All that hard work is worth it once it starts for the first time and you get chills!
