  1. The MAF connector pictured above is not mine. But it could very well be bad wiring somewhere. I would like to have this rewired completely to eliminate all the extra stuff I don't need cluttering up stuff.
  2. Yeah I've been told that these tend to run rich that I may just be stuck with it. We're also thinking it may have some kind of cam in it because of how it runs, but don't really want to open it up just to see. Down the road I do plan on completely gutting all the wiring and starting from scratch and go with an aftermarket ECU as well to clean up all the wiring between Datsun and Nissan stuff.
  3. It was the wiring that goes to the coil, ignition module, etc. It has metal strands in the shielding that was touching bare wire. It came out of a '93 so it's OBD-1. I also have a battery kill switch that I use every time. We've let it run for a while and it stays rich. The MAF I bought was a direct replacement as the one I took off. When we unplug the MAF it starts to idle nice and doesn't seem to smoke as bad. I got to get the brakes working correctly before I can try and drive it to see if clears up or not.
  4. Found my issue. There's that grey wire shielding that we cut into to slice another wire and just a couple strands of it was touching the wire causing the damn thing to not start... Pulled the strands out of the way, used liquid electrical tape to cover the bare wires, and wrapped that. Still runs rough/rich. Unplug the new maf and it smooths out. Will have to do more tests on some sensors. And I still got to mess with the brakes some more. Think I'm getting air in somewhere.
  5. I'm for sure getting fuel. Plugs and wires are also new. I was planning on running a wire to the coil to check that as well
  6. Seeing that it's been 3 months since the last update shit didn't happen as planned. Had to replace the brake master twice, then found my tail lights didn't work, can't find the reason it runs rich so far, and it just randomly quite wanting to start. Pulled it into the shop to go over a few items, change the oil and injectors. Go to pull it back out and it just cranks/no start. Gets fuel but no spark. Seems to not be getting any power to the coil. Eliminated everything simple so we have to dig through the wiring and see what the hell happened.
  7. We are finally within a day of driving this bitch! Got my battery set up in the back of the truck, tank and compressors set, wired, and plumbed, and my gauge panel wired and set. Have one bulk head fitting that's leaking to replace and the final touches on the custom fuel tank that should be finished up tonight/tomorrow. Super bloody excited!
  8. Got the notch cover done, nothing too fancy.
  9. I actually don't have any pictures cause I didn't do the work. I can ask how the rolled lip was done around the radiator cap. I do know only the bare minimum was cut to sink it in and the up/down support in the center was not removed either.
  10. Radiator is for the RX7
  11. Center console is actually mounted with the switches in their place.
  12. So the truck got put on the back burner over the winter, but I've tried to do little things myself here and there. Couple things I messed with and got set in today was my box that I'll have the compressors and air tank in. Got nut serts in for easy removal of the tank/compressors, and holes drilled to mount box to bed as well as where the air lines will go out. Also put down some sound/heat deadener, got 620 seat rails to fit on the Shelby seats and set them in. Set the center console sitting in there to make sure it'll fit right. Getting close to driving this thing. Plan is to drive to Salem OR towards the end of July.
