Remember there are different versions of the E88 though. The 260 version is more like the N42 design that followed than the 240 version. Plus, the chambers in your pics Rob have been worked on to some degree.

What engine is in the car Derrick? What head and block codes?

Right got all the wiring loom sorted took about three nights as indicator would come on but not flash but hazards would work ok turned out to be the hazard light switch faulty due to corrosion and bad connection inside the switch

Cleaned it all up like new now works fine.

Couldn't get the rear lights to work,or find which wires were for the front side lights as there was a lot of wires just with cut ends and when testing them with the light switched to side lights on there was no power to rear or front.

then tested from the switch on the column stork this had live to it but was not switching live to rear lights or side light wires so carefully took back of switch apart cleaned it sprayed the whole thing with contact cleaner and kept turning on and off and hey presto it worked the rear lights now working

Then went to front of car and tested all the cut ends and had power to them and sooted out which were the side light wires i was so please as it had been a very frustrating week every night try to sort it all out,cut out lots of wires that had been spliced in not sure why
so now i know what wire dose what and all labelled out comes the loom

It could be the photos but she looks relatively unscathed by oxygen rot! What colour are you planning for her? Candy red perchance!?
😉


Looks like the battery's had a party - is that acid or just grime?

BTW, I love your log store, let's hope you don't need to go on the roof anytime soon 😜

Your wiring reminds me of the trouble I had with Matt's on Sunday. Lots of wires disconnected, fusebox melted, and switches not working without a wiggle. Got there in the end though.

Well you learn something new everyday - I didn't know the later 260z front crossmember/lower rad support was different to the earlier cars! Interesting.

Don't forget my offer to drive my 260Z over to you some time if you need to see what goes where etc. Would need to be a Friday whenever suits or whenever you think it would be most useful to you. Rob

Accommodates a deeper radiator and hence bottom hose changes too...
