What type of engine does my datsun 19 79 280zx have?

Asked by Oct 31, 2015 at 04:58 PM about the 1979 Nissan 280ZX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a datsun 280zx but I'm not
sure it has the stock engine, the only
numbers I read on the block are 28-399005
and n47, can somebody let me know if
that's the original engine? I love this car but
I'm verly starting to get into cars and I want
to try to fix as much as I can myself.

Is it the inline 6 cylinder? If so it is the Nissan 2.8 liter engine which is a great motor!

It almost certainly is the original engine.

Okay thanks! It's because I bought a remanufactured distributor but it didint fit perfectly so I got a bit confuse, thanks man I'm pretty sure they sent me a defective item.
