Crank but no start.

Asked by Oct 13, 2017 at 01:07 AM about the 1981 Datsun 280ZX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Vehicle was running before I replaced the brake
master cylinder. Car runs with starter fluid, I have
no injector pulse. Do this cars have a crank or cam
sensor for injection pulse, can't figure out why it
stopped running. All fuses and links are good, all
relays are good, I have spark at coil and wires, all
spark plugs look good, I have fuel and pressure at
the rail. Car has an L28 NA

Yes sir they have a crank angle sensor

I have not had time to get to working on the car, I have been looking at diagrams. The dropping resistor is next to the master cylinder, I am planing on doing a pin out test for pulse and then moving on to the resister. If the resistor is the problem is there a mod I can do since the part is no longer produced ?
