  1. Carb Repair Kit

    It really is amazing how many problems on these old pots can be rectified with just a little cleaning. Old gas and varnish can be a real "stickler" in getting things to work smoothly again.
  2. Carb Repair Kit

    The only reason to replace needles or nozzles is if wear is an issue. Metering needles with a shiny spot from wearing on the nozzle and a concurrent orifice worn egg shape in the nozzle would be a change out reason. As long as the needle is straight and un-worn and the hole in the nozzle is round and .100" there isn't much to be gained.
  3. No Gas...

    We are building a set of SU carbs for a Volvo for 2018 version of this event...... Maybe 2019. I forget what he said.....
  4. Got to love ZTherapy

    FYI Steve and Pam are going to be at the BRE Reunion in LA. If ya want to talk to the man with the magic, look 'em up.
  5. PROFILES: Randy York’s rare 1973 Datsun 510

    Randy indeed was one of the lingering few "real people"......
  6. Z Car Garage featured on Speedhunters

    And in the midst of all their high tech efforts Rob and crew have installed a number of our carbs for happy customers. Bruce Almighty @ ZTherapy
  7. need an honest Z repair shop

    Z Car Garage in San Jose. About the best there is. Give Rob fuller a call. Tell him I sent you, he'll talk to you anyway.... nyuck nyuck 404-452-0350
  8. SU Rams / Velocity Stacks

    I think anything along this line of rolling that air into the mouth of the carbs rather than breaking it over the square corner is invaluable. I've run the Stub Stacks from APTFast for years and really like them. Of course that's on a 510 where distance is limited......
  9. Troy, Just to confirm what was stated here-in the help you can get here is far and away the best you can find anywhere on the web.
  10. Datsuns at Monterey

    As usual, Alvin, you did a yeoman's job of recapping the event. Thank you very much......
  11. Eiji and I head to head

    Guy, could you be a little more specific about that obviously marvelous carb system? Perhaps the Post Office should take a look at them as the really appear "TO HAUL THE MAIL"....... Nyuck nyuck
  12. Keeping the yoke and shaft orientation one to the other should keep vibration from returning. The shaft was balance that way so putting it back that way should be fine. I agree with the guys in thinking you have other problems here.....
  13. Hard line between mech fuel pump and SU

    FYI We have replated fuel rails.
  14. Sm Needles

    Gotta love it when helping hands reach out to one another.
  15. Fun event coming up starting at West Salem Safeway parking lot. $5 per poker card goes to charity. Have a dozen or so stops along the way to chat look at cars, do some nibbling ending I think at one of the areas nicest local brewery/eatery. Any questions call me at 503-587-9800
