Datsun 280Z Engine.
1978 Datsun 280Z is a cool sporty 2 seater with an inline-6 2.8L engine. Nissan released them from 75-78. One of these beauties came in needing a short block engine rebuild.
The Rebuild Plan: Teardown and Inspection, Hot tank and clean. Bore and Hone engine block. Grind Crank and Cam.
Engine Rebuild Kit with New pistons, rings, engine bearings, freeze plugs, and timing set.
Clean, Paint and assemble.
First off we need to tear it down and get it hot tanked and scrub off years of grime and grunge. We check for cracks or damage, this one looks good so it’s off to the bore machine. A few before shots.

Next we bore and hone the cylinders to the proper finish and order the correct pistons.
Prep on the block is done, it has a coat of new paint and a second cleaning. It’s ready for some parts. We’ve already ground the crank, hung the new pistons, installed bearings and freeze plugs. Timing kit is on standby and we are ready for the short block assembly.
Check out the rebuilt 280Z straight 6 short block. It’s looking good.
