Thread bump.

I came across these. Anyone know if this kit is any good or suitable for a mild street l28 engine?

They are under $1.3k aud delivered.

Hmmmm Disagree
New webers hover around $450-500 if thats a canon manifold add $350-400 , plus the linkages say $100 plus ram tubes  say another $120-160.... Do the math, seems ok $ to me for a sensible mild L28. If all that gear is new, Id say its looking pretty good, better hurry up as the aussie dollar is slipping  :(

Nothing wrong with second hand!
You're looking in the wrong places then ???

Ive scoured ebay, gumtree and check here regularly. Also asked rob and Lindsay from the Z shop/z factory?.

No one has d40's for sale at the moment that don't require a rebuild. Most ive seen are 50mm's and over 1.5k  hence why ive been looking in USA and UK.

I want something i can buy, bolt-on and get tuned. Dont really want to mess around with rebuilding and sourcing little bits and peices.

Want to point me in the right direction Simon?? Why hold back for! ;D

Join a club.
Network.
Done  ;)

But saying that. I've bought 3 sets of triple Mikuni's from the states................
2 sets needed rebuilding. 1 set reassembly.
Got a set of twins to put back together, when I have time  ::)
Buy a set and rebuild them yourself. You'll learn how they work and get to know everything about them!

Nowhere in the ad does it state those carbs are Webers. Apparently the Chinese are doing copies now - they could be it.

Seen this ad? Seems like a good deal to me.. SK OER 40's and all the kit for $1k CAD.

Any Carb experts on here know a ballpark cost to recondition these carbs by eyeballing them?

http://cgi.ebay.com....atchlink:top:en


The reason i ask is they are in USA and can't exactly carry them in for a carb specialist to look at.
I can get them for roughly $1250 delivered. New ones will cost around $1800 delivered.. which i'm really considering to buy.

Get a quote from Top End Performance in the states so you know what you can get new ones for. They are pretty cheap new these days.

I wouldn't pay that for 40mm webers that need reconditioning.
But in saying that. I think I sold my 40mm Mikuni's for about $1700. But they were fully stripped back and rebuilt.
Why not go 44 Mikuni's and choke them down?
I've bought 3 sets from the USA in the past, from forums. Not ebay.

Thanks Simon thats the kind of answer im looking for. I have seen a few on Forums but none want to go through Paypal or post international  :-\  and not too fond of the idea of sending $1.5k or so overseas to an anonymos person..rather go through Paypal/ebay or company who takes Credit Card so im covered.

Still tossing up whether to get 40/45's. Read dozens of threads and answers are 50/50. I havent come across any new Mikunis 44's yet will considering it but might just go Webers as they seem to be plentiful and  there is alot of info on them. But my options are open at the moment.

Here's the link

http://lupinusflower.ocnk.net/

I bought some last week and the deal was via Paypal.
I found it easiest to email them, rather than order through the site.
They then sent me an invoice via Paypal.

There's also a guy in Canberra who rebuilds Mikunis, but I would need to look for his site for you..

You can't buy new Mikuni's anymore. Stopped making them in the late 90's.
Can of worms.
But guys who've had and/or worked on Webers and Mikuni's, prefer Mikuni's

Love the solex carbs for the L there a treat to work with , and for the L 28 go with the 44 every time , the new webers have nothing on the old solex carbs , if you can find some 13 webers from the Italy there very good as well , pay a bit more for the old carbs and your car will drive so much better , look on yahooo japan they come up from time to time , we got some last week
