  1. Looks like either of these places have the idler gear and the striking rod. Id start with jp-carparts. I believe you do an inquiry first, they make sure they have parts available then you pay. (I've never used jp) Amayama will say they have the parts, want money up front, then sometimes they cant get the parts and leave you with a credit. (personal experience) Shipping from Japan is not cheap, but hey brand new parts! The last place sells used parts and is in Oregon, never dealt with them. https://jp-carparts.com/ https://www.amayama.com/en http://mmerlinn.com/catalog/makeridx.htm

    Stock disc brakes

    JDH6, You should be able to use late 510 calipers. Its much beefier then the original 510 caliper. Did this to my 610 with 13" wheels. You will need the larger disk also. Scroll about 2/3rds down the first page, https://ratsun.net/topic/66155-olde-skool-610/
  3. If your looking at buying a fair amount of tuning parts for your Weber's, you might want to consider sourcing out of the UK. https://www.burtonpower.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=ram+pipes https://www.burtonpower.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=weber+jets https://www.burtonpower.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=weber+emulsion+tubes
  4. Caution with the large nut, being a 71C, I believe it is left hand thread.
  5. So how would one fly this thing with no tail? Or is it now a boat?
  6. Hopefully somebody here can clue me in on this. Obviously some type of water aircraft, wings aren't attached.

    Dual Weber L20B

    If you still want to run side drafts, I believe Pierce still sells the short intake https://www.piercemanifolds.com/product_p/mt-0037-c.htm I thought Redline produced one also? Their manifold raised the carbs up to get away from the booster, the pics in the listing below show you how close you'll be to the booster https://www.ebay.com/i/233293001120?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=233293001120&targetid=884638959240&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9015401&poi=&campaignid=9426322711&mkgroupid=98144268200&rlsatarget=pla-884638959240&abcId=1141016&merchantid=6296724&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhez9sIv16QIVAb7ACh0VjgVDEAYYBCABEgIEWvD_BwE Honestly, a good set of 46mm SU's turns a stock L20B into a different animal. Throw a little bit of cam at it and good to go! Good Luck!

  9. If your going to put Azenis or StarSpecs on the 15s for daily driving, I wouldn't even bother with the 13s, unless you do put track tires on em. No need to put crappy tires on your car just to run 13" wheels. Stick with the those15s. Since your in the east, track tires do not like to be in cold weather (freezing). I run kumho ecsta 205/50-15 treaded track tires on the street. I got a killer deal from a closeout gig on the tire rack. As far as wearing them out. Im lucky to drive 100 miles a year. Those type of tires would probably be good for about 3K miles on the street. I did have to buy the cheapest az 13" tires to put on the car when its cold (winter). Ended up getting 185/70-13s off of ebay for like $125 for all 4. Made in Vietnam!!! All's I know is they hold air for me to be able to move the car around when the track tires are off for the season and in the house. The best performance radial tires will be 2 ply tires. You'll see some nomenclature on the tire that will say something like tread = 2 polyester 2 steel 1 nylon , sidewall = 2 polyester. The 'ply' is polyester, nylon or rayon is better, the steel is the belts and the 1 nylon is the overlay. Overlay holds the tire together at speed.
  10. Yeah, good 13" rubber is slim pickens. Its either Toyo or Michelin for treaded tires, even though they are actually track tires. Michelin is kinda pricy. Dunlop and BFG still have some offerings but they're wsw tires. https://www.cokertire.com/michelin-tb15.html
  11. Your kinda right. The flap is moved by the temperature of the 'spring' on the manifold. As the spring heats up, it pivots the deflector plate so the exhaust gases flow more freely. Its an aid to warm the engine up faster.
  12. Use a weber 32/36, the carb off the j13 will be to small and will need re-jetted. Where did you end up finding a 5th gear steel syncro ring? $$$? Typically you should replace the ring, blocks and bands as a unit as all of those parts are the 'synchronizer'. Nice Roadster
  13. Never used this place, but it appears he has a lot of stuff! https://mmerlinn.com/catalog/dox_angel/dt_w7b/dtw7b_f.htm
  14. I'm sure this place can do it for you. Probably cheaper to buy new ones? https://www.applehydraulicsonline.com/collections/sleeving
