    A week in Japan

    History Garage is easy to get to in Tokyo. Here is current exhibition highlights. There are lots of other cars too... and if you walk through the corridor, you will find some rare books on the Z. http://www.megaweb.gr.jp/article/1960s_japan/

    The original fan should be fine to run with. Either way it is fine. FYI Kats posted this photo which may be from 68 or 69 test car or dyno. It looks like an early plastic fan from another application such as 510 or from a Cedric (with L24) that would predate the production metal fan application: @kats @HS30-H may be able so share more. Here is a Cedric engine with a similar fan: and an L20A with similar fan:

    Another great source for lash pads.

    Looks like to make a lash pad you turn a rod in a lathe, part it off the end, grind the bottom then grind out the top side passage.

    Front carb is leaner than rear carb from the plugs. Rear carbs look better. You can lower the front jet 1/4 turn to balance the fuel better.

    I could have bought #48 for $19k when he put it up for sale.... it hurts! No money at the time otherwise life would be a little different. Q: Did you get that NOS water pump from the guy in PEI's Ebay auction?
