I have a lot of experience with the old Z cars. I had a built engine 280ZX, then got a 72 240 that had sat in a garage for 13 years. Swapped drive train from the ZX to the Z, and a couple years later swapped that out for an L28ET. Did most everything myself except the shop work on the build N/A motor.

Tips... It might be common sense but remove the fuel tank and get it cleaned ASAP. I was a kid back then and I didn't do this... The old gunk in the tank caused me a ton of problems. Nothing else really comes to mind, the car was always super easy to work on and the swaps, both of them, were as straight forward as they come. I'd be glad to answer specific questions or what have you...
