Triple Dellorto Dhla40G On Cannon Manifold With Linkages

Wed, 22/11/2017 - 19:54

For saleTriple Dellorto DHLA40G on Cannon manifold with linkages and filters


These have come off my 240z L24 engine. I removed the engine at Easter 2017 and upgrade to an L28 with Weber 45s.


I have now decided i want to freshen up the original L24 and put it back to original spec with original twin carburettors and selling the triple set up will contributed to funding this .


I want my matching numbers engine to be all original again, even though i don't really have plans to put it back in the car  and having this setup hangin off the side of the L seems a bit of a waste.


This triple setup was put together back in around 2008  , the carbs were all rebuilt then and are still in good condition , no leaks and run fine.


When i had the car back in around 2011 i sent it to a local dyno tuner here in Adelaide to iron out some of the bugs it still had from the previous/original tune somewhere in Melbourne and it came up pretty good with about 94kw at the wheels at 5600rpm. This is a standard spec L24 with extractors and petronix ignition . 


it has been reliable and had no need for retuning in the following 6 years and i drove it as much as possible as a weekender and the odd occasion to work.


These ran off the original Nikki mechanical fuel pump and from the original fuel rail.


Included are


Triple carbs with ram tubes, manifold, linkages that hook up to original pedal bellcrank and filters , although 4 filters are due to be replaced and i will buy 4 new Unifilters to match the other 2 bought last year and include. New fuel hoses included with hose clamps.


Asking $1250


Any questions please let me know

Cars For Sale (3rd Party Sites) Ebay, Carsales etc..

Wed, 22/11/2017 - 12:03
Hi Everyone,

If you are posting links to cars listed on ebay, it would be greatly appreciated if you could:

1.) Post the Ebay Item Number (usually located in the top right hand corner), along with the Ebay link. Sometimes ebay links are not reliable or don't work properly so including an item number is an easy way for others to look up the item if the link is broken.

2.) When the ebay listing is finished, if you could post the sale price and or the highest bid (if the item does not sell). If others are not watching an item, we cannot visit the item at a later stage easily so we cannot tell what it sold or didn't sell for.

3.) If possible save a few photo's from the auction and post them here. This is useful because it gives everyone an indication of current values and what you get for your money if you are looking to buy or sell.

This will help us all, for insurance reasons we have some proof of current values. For selling it helps us gauge our cars true worth and for curiosity sake we can compare year on year the values of our cars etc..

If anyone has further suggestions to this, please feel free to share them here.

Tue, 21/11/2017 - 11:57



Not sure if this belongs in Cars or Parts so will post in both.


Now that my bus is registered I have no further need for the S130 doner car.

So before I send it to scrap, I though I would offer it up to anyone on the forum who wants it or parts off it.


1981 280ZX (was manual)

Colour : Moroon

Interior : Red

Location : Hornsby NSW 2077

Price : Free - Take Away


Car is rusty so not much of the body is useful, but does still have


Full interior, including original radio

3.7 R200 with CV shafts

Disc rear end


I don't really have the time to pack and send and parts, if you want something come and get it.

The car is a "Roller" and needs to stay that way.

260Z Manual Clutch And Brake Pedal With Near New Clutch Master Cly

Sun, 19/11/2017 - 23:43
Gday guys
As the title suggest I have a manual brake and clutch pedal to suit a 240 and 260z
Comes with a near new clutch master cylinder aswell, only used for a small amount of time
Bought these to fit to do a manual conversion on my 260z when I had the rb25 in there but since I have done a Barra conversion and is auto I don’t need them anymore
I cannot find my auto pedal anywhere( may have chucked it out by accident) so if the buyer has a auto pedal we can work out a deal :)
Can post Australia wide no worries at buyers expense
