40 mm Mikuni carbs - Choke Cables

Recommended Posts

Has anyone successfully added working choke cables to 40 mm Mikuni's in a 260Z?  Your suggestions or photos would be very helpful.

Thanks

What are your concerns? There is no huge surprises. The mik's at least are set up so you have to pull toward the firewall. With Webers you have to loop a long cable to the front of the carbs to pull toward the rad.

Hardest part might be where to mount the knob bracket under the dash, or how to hold the sheath at the carbs, ie make a bracket.. Or get a 240z cable and lever, mod your console to accept it,  Wait, didn't 260's have choke cables? They have carbs right?

260s have a choke lever and cable.  But the cable exits the firewall on the passenger side.  But too many bends cause to much friction for the cable to work effectively.  A solution is to run the cable inline with the consul on the driver side and out the firewall, similar to an early 240.  I'd just like to see if anyone has done it before drilling another hole in the firewall.
