Ok so i will just post the damn link.
Jetronic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
K jetronic is based on desil engine style cam driven pump its mechanical. For sure i have rebuilt the unit before. L in your 280 had electrical injectors. Most of the systems dont. Im sure the mechanical K style systems are in your performance out of print book. I know i actually read that book.
You should put a v8 with twin turbos and a powerglide in your 280z then back half the car and install 4 link style shortened 9 inch with big tires. Run it with the ms1. And nos lots of nos!! It may not be what you are looking for but i felt like giving you some unrelated and unwanted advice. Enjoy!
