What more can you check if you have changed the starter three times but the motor will not turn over on a 1983 280ZX?

This is a common ignition problem. Use a DIY test button push start. I would guess that your key ignition is broken like mine. Currently my Z will start with no key and run and drive. I remove the battery cable when parked.

Below it sounds like he has no prior knowledge of the Z cars.

Have you checked the motor isn't seized? Can you turn it over by hand at the pulley?

you may have water in the cyender, remove all spark plugs then turn over engine, you probably have blown head gasket

I normally turn the key and the starter turns the motor... check complete.

The starter motor on a Citrogen Berlingo can be changed by first removing the electrical wires. Remove the three bolts that hold the starter in place. The starter will come out. Reverse the process to install the new starter.

if engine will not turn over, check fuses first. then check battery, starter motor, starter motor solenoid and ignition switch

The single click, that you hear when the starter switch is operated, is the solenoid making the high tension connection to the starter motor. If the starter motor doesn't turn over, you will need to check both the battery feed to the solenoid and the feed from the solenoid to the starter motor (this is typically a short length of braided cable). I have known this cable to corrode through. If it has, the easiest remedy, is to replace the entire starter motor.
