Triple Weber long term storage

    Recommended Posts

    Since I'm restoring the 240 and hope to be installing these Webers in a year or so, what is the best method for storing the carbs?

    I have the tops, was just inspecting them. Thanks guys.

    I bought a plastic storage container for mine and slid them under my bed for 4 or 5 years.  Then sold them to the man above ^^^^^^^^. :victorious:

    I had it in a bag and big plastic container, but after a while I started getting a bad feeling about how long it was actually going to be just sitting.

    I know its not an exciting subject, but I appreciate the input.

    A light oiling of steel parts (lids, hardware, and linkage) and place in a bag.  Keep indoors at room temperature.

    ^^^ this, and desiccant bags don't hurt. Don't ask how I know.

    I believe one of the questions to determine if you're a Z-nut is: "Do you store parts under your bed?". With the corollary being: "No dear, I DID take a shower, I have no idea why you keep smelling gasoline".

    Guilty. I have had a mint 240Z hatch in the baster bedroom closet behind my wife's clothes for a few years now. Just couldnt put it out in the shop for it to get rusty.

    Maybe I'll move some of her clothes out and put the Webers in there as well............

    Oh OK... I was just kidding. I do have Z parts under the bed.

    Unfortunately Alice's doesn't exist anymore... Here's what's left:

    However, the nearby church is still going strong:

    Here's an inside shot (taken from down among the pews) up towards the bell tower where Alice, Ray, and Fascher the dog slept:

    So is this a record for just how far off target a thread can be jacked? LOL

    Since the OP's question has been answered let me go even further off target.  Is this something similar to Kill Bill where the Bride's wedding turns into a massacre?  I guess I could just read the Wiki page...
