post your vin up we can decode it for better info.

but it looks like a throttle body, i believe the whole electro injected thing was just a fancy way of saying that.

oh btw, Z24's rule! unbreakable, we got these in australia right up until 1992, then ka's came out, but were less popular.

Yeah. That Z24 might not accelerate fast, but you won't be able to break it, either.

First pic: Looks like "left over" wiring to an amp or something that a previous owner had installed. Nissan does not install those type of inline fuses.

Second pic: Distributor pic looks normal. Extra wire could have gone to a factory option that wasn't installed. I think YEPEE has the Z24, so he might be able to comment more info.

Third pic: Looks like someone had fog lights installed and that's where their switch went. They took the switch out, and left you with the old wiring. Score, eh?

Forth pic: Fuck finger is on the interlock switch. I think you turn it on for extra pulling power from an automatic. I'm not sure because Nissan did away with those long before they ever built my 1994. Your index finger is pointing to more aftermarket garbage that someone installed and left you with. Millennium Falcon

Fifth pic: Looks like a Jap Z engine. Here's a vacuum wiring diagram:

interlock switch is for bypassing the clutch pedal to engage the starter

4th pic(index finger) is where the ac switch should be, maybe they couldn't find an original replacement, jp2code has you covered on the rest

Any idea what that extra wire is on his distributor, YEPEE? Like, do you have those wires on your Z24?

Hey JP,
The harness that runs to my distributor on my Z24 also has the trigger wire for the AC compressor. My truck had dealer installed ac so that plug was cut and soldered to the input of the compressor, so I suspect that is the spare plug we see dangling in his pics. I noticed that there is no AC compressor below his distributor....... There also is no factory AC switch in the climate control panel so I suspect that red switch to be for some aftermarket add on...

I also suspect that the missing fuse and harness at the battery to be for some old school alarm...That looks suspiciously like and old Circuit City alarm and/or remote start installation... so IF I were in his shituation I would follow that harness back through the cab and remove ALL OF THAT WIRING and take the truck back to completely stock wiring. Remove all of those dangling switches and wires repair any factory wires that were tapped into or cut and then begin trouble shooting all over again.

if your going to pull wires... disconnect the batt first, just to be safe. Back in the day these trucks came without ac, I bought an ac kit (oem) had it installed, those kits were plug-n-play, aside from adding the Freon of course, I believe that wire off the dizzy was for a tach (which I do not have) and if I remember is still un-plugged, I will double check it..
