77 280z 2+2

I've inherited a 78 Datsun 280z 2+2 from my grandfather R.I.P Pop.
The car has been sitting for a long time maybe 7-8 years.
Just need some tips of what to check, clean, drain, flush out, etc... before I start trouble shooting why it wasn't starting before it was parked for all those years. Any tips will help out thanks.

This was written for a 240Z, but much of it applies to your car: Waking the sleeping beast? - Introductions and Rides - Classic Zcar Club
Look for the comment from Carl Beck.
Download the FSM for your car from XenonZcar.com
It may also help to download a copy of the fuel injection bible: http://www.xenonzcar.com/s130/other.php
Don't be surprised if the injectors are gummed up from old gas. They may need to be removed and cleaned.
