    I believe this is installed correctly. Anyone?

    Finally found some series 1 wheel chocks. I sent off for around 30 yellow powder samples. I decided on 02 VETTE YELLOW by Prismatic powders. It was close, just slightly brighter, I think when new this would have been almost identical. First picture was taken indoors under terrible lighting. This finishes off my series 1 tool kit.

    It’s designed to go one way. It holds the fuel filter in and has a inside flange.

    Most people run the fuel just like you have it setup there. I just decided to go different.

    You can see one L and 2 Ts on my carbs. One of the T’s has a called end. 1 L i have now is a left. I need a right facing one. They are a little harder to find.

    I have stock style wire ones. I am waiting on a L fuel fitting from Japan. Then I swill swap them all out.

    Starter circuit is done and working. I used the stock su cables. I think next is more zinc’d parts and rebuilding the horns

    Rebuilt Nikki Fuel pump, NOS parts

    200$ shipped. Nikki 2.4, 2.6 and 2.8 fuel pumps. Most of the parts are Nos. All internals are new. Only issue is the zinc on the hose barbs don’t perfectly match the screws. Base that attaches to the block and hose barbs are the only parts not NOS. PM me.

    Camouflaged as carbs

    A few z builds I follow on instagram have them. They look pretty sweet. I hope they do OER/ Mikuni copies as well.

    Oil catch can is done (some ebay smaller aluminum one). Time to drive it! The goal was stock looking as possible, also no holes drilled. This is two pvc hoses spliced together with a 5/8 brass union, the pre- bends worked awesome and looks like I meant it to happen. Catch can has a nice little drain on the bottom.

    Thank you. Honestly the paint job (70s respray )is $^!#. But makes me want to drive it more. I doubt I will ever repaint it. This company did the coating http://www.performancecoatings.com/

    Thank you. I am trying to make whatever i do as nice as it can be done. By a hobbyist .The interia switch was actually the first hole I have drilled in my z. It worried me a little. I screwed up the the butterfly’s a little on the Mikuni’s. They are now all set pretty perfect. I can see a sliver of light when closed. The heat shield I bought doesn’t fit. Weirdly the carbs stay nice and cool. My header is ceramic coated. Maybe that’s enough? Also the header design keeps the pipes pretty far away from the carbs. Thoughts? Anyone? Next goals. Next is taking the starter apart and zinc, vapor blast and paint it. Re zinc the horns, they have over spray on them. Pull oil pan, powder coat and re zinc all the bolts
