    What you want is an early Euro or Canadian balance tube, the one without all the bosses for mounting emissions equipment on.

    I had a Canadian car, 03778, that had the Euro balance tube, as all the early Canadian cars did.

    I would guess that maybe the Japanese Fairlady cars had that kind of balance tube also.   

    I had a spare Euro balance tube that I got from the UK a few years ago but sold it.

    I would try placing want ad notices in those countries. You need persistence and patience. They are very in No America.

    Not quite correct, all cars imported into all of Canada in 69-70, except the ones that went to Ont. They would have had all of the emissions system.

    It's a throttle return damper. 

    Yea, 4 types, 240dkw.  Three different castings - one of them machined.

    Yes, 26th z is right.  throttle return damper,  as memory serves my right... this is a smaller one as on the euro version originaly was.. it's the first part that stops working and people throw them away, because they are not really working most of the time.. (therefore you see them rarely)
