The flasher for a 1983 Datsun 280zx is mounted under the dash. It is on the drivers side, close to the kick panel.

I have one out of a 1982 do you need left or right? I have a parts car

Try going to the following website: Click on Service Manuals "Cars" and you can then download a free copy of the 1982 280zx manual. A picture might be better; but, a diagram can be found in the EF & EC (engine fuel and emmissions) section. 1982 & 1983 should be the same.

yes. it has the L28e or L28et. It will fit in any of the Z's. If it's turbo and the other tranny and rear end you have are for a non-turbo then you need the turbo tranny and rear end

if it is turbo charged it should give you 19 miles per gallon according to my sticker info.

This card, like any other collectible varies with condition. An average, drive every day Z with little or no rust is about $2700-3500 depending on where you live. Cherry vehicles can for for as much as 7k-9k.

Firing Order of Nissan's L-6The firing order of the 1982 is 1-5-3-6-2-4 (1982 Datsun 280ZX Service Manual, October 1981 edition), all L24-L28E engines use the same order (240Z-280ZX till 1983). In 1984 Nissan changed to the VG30E for the 300ZX which has a firing orde of 1-2-3-4-5-6.

Yes. For the most part all 1979-1983 280zx transmissions are pretty much the same, manual to manual and auto to auto. The turbo transmission from 81-83 however is a Borg Warner T-5 style toploader. Something tells me through experience is that they will bolt up to a non turbo motor, but the driveshafts and rear end will need to be changed. Also, be aware that the older Z's from 70-78 will bolt up, but the driveshafts would definitely need to be swapped, especially if you are putting a 4 speed into it for whatever reason.

The last actuall year datsun stoped putting its name on their cars would be in 1983. From 1984 the put Nissan really big then datsun

The 280z was the final S30 model, which ended production in 1978. The following models, designated S130, were produced from 1979-1983. These are known as the 280zx. Nissan's number name designations were set up to represent the size of the engine. 240z = 2,4L, 260z = 2.6, 280z/zx = 2.8L. All Z/ZX cars had a straight 6, up until the 300zx, which had a V6. I daily drive an '83 280zx and they do have some get-up. They weren't designed to beat Camaros and Corvettes, and stock they don't. But they are incredibly fun cars to drive.

Nissan 200SX is what this car is called. The Datsun name was not used this year. Click the link, bottom left.

4 Cyl engines through to 1990. Engine ID # is stamped on a pad on the right side of the engine block except for the Z24i which is on the left. Most engines are the Z22, 4 cyl, with 8 spark plugs.

It's internal. Inside the alternator.

which spec are you looking for?

You need new wires, or distributor cap. Moisture can get into a cracked cap or cause wet wires where spark jumps from wire to wire, or wire to ground.

I have a 1983 280zx, so I can tell you based on personal experience that it will run, however your mileage and performance will go down and it could damage your fuel system.

The engine-Other than an increase in displacement to 2188cc the Z22E engines used in 1982 and 1983 models remains basically the same as the Z20E engine in terms of the design, then there's Engine/Serial/Number/ engine/model L28E and stamped on right/hand side of the cylinder block! In 1980 the engines used then was the L28E ...I hope this helped you!!!
