  1. Suppose I should throw on some Weber side drafts and call it good? Curious how the throttle response and sound compare to a pair of those.
  2. Oh, I can time a motor. I don't have the number one headband, but I do alright. Fine tuning power bands with chalk? Can't do that unless I drive it, and I'll never be sure every time I twist it. If good enough isn't, then I'll use a better tool. Maybe I'll even re-re-re-watch some of your videos
  3. How did you modification handle on the street? Was it hard to live with at part throttle in traffic? There's probably a way to to modify the pedal to throttle ratio to something livable
  4. I believe the answer is economy. But It's been a while since I read up on that subject. The average driver is usually at city speed or highway speed and not brap speed. Power and efficiency have a relation to time. If you want the most power in the least amount of time, it's gonna cost efficiency. That's where Engineer's come in. Efficiency is their currency
  5. Mike did you use the mechanical fuel pump to feed the carbs? I will try that. I want that.
  6. Yeah, I don't trust myself when I do it with the timing light. I will probably get the final tune done by some old school shop. Cool book, left out 620's though! My project will end up something like lil red here, since I'll be making a rat box for the back. At the least it will have cool smoke stacks. I just really like smoke stacks. not ugly through the bed stacks, but elegant stacks like lil red here.
  7. Damn the going rate for these things ain't cheap, I saw people raving about the savings though. ๐Ÿค” Not gonna find any at the local pick and pull either...hmmmm.... Suppose I could be patient untill I find a good deal.
  8. Awsome, what year yamaha are your carbs off of? What about the vacuum signal for the distributor?
  9. Aaaw sick stacks dude! Man now I'm gettin' the itch to do it too... I read the 1st of 57 pages, l like it. Thanks the useful info guys! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Now do those R1 carbs need individually tuned, and have you gotten any clogged jets very often? Also are there any obvious markings or differences between the L16 & L18 SUs that I can use to identify the L18 SUs with? Heres a set of I think L18 SU's on ebay. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/DATSUN-180B-SSS-TWIN-HITACHI-SU-CARBYS-INLET-MANIFOLD-L18-NISSAN-1600-L16-/324058145420
  10. Thanks dude, I've been looking for a while now, and I've decided to try my hand at locating these carbs you've suggested. I've got lots of time, land & fabrication ability - And I'm not afraid of no used carburetor. I've rebuilt motorbikes, mopeds, scooters, trail bikes, dirt bikes, mini bikes, trucks , tractors, mowers, cars, jeeps, vans & every kind of small engine 2 stroke and four. What I don't have is knowledge of these carburetors and how to spot them under different names while hunting ebay or w/e As an example this listing near me $150 ยท MG Midget Classic Mini Morris Minor Twin Carb Looks like it.
  11. Hey guys, looking at a local add - there's some parts available, an L16 with some kind of cam installed, some factory 510 hubcaps and a Weber down draft carb. Does the mechanical fuel pump interchange with the L20B? carb? caps? My 620 L20B has the emissions removed, would the manifold be usefull?
  12. Yes, you can substitute that part for one of these: You won't need the stock harness if you go this route, you won't even need roads. You can see the custom harness fixed to the outside of this bad boy right here:
  13. Yeah I see what your missing there - you're getting that red spark because the rotor isn't producing enough capacitance. You should be producing about 1.21JWatts according to this schematic here: Check to see if this part here is connected correctly to mains power
  14. Nope not yet! But I fixed a leaky skylight! Is it a little chief like mine? I replaced the old propane heater with a Chinese diesel heater and it's pretty nice. There is a tear down of one of these motorhomes that was done and posted up on this forum that journals the process, but I couldn't find it. Maybe one of these guys can find it?
  15. AW that sucks bro. You probably shouldn't put things in your mouth tho, I think that's called pica - you might have a mineral deficiency. And are not the gay. Oh yeah? You in the market for mini rv?
