Retro Z - you shouldn't buy carbs until you know what you want from the engine. For that I'd consult someone like Peter.

For the record I bought my Mikuni's from the US on eBay about 8 years ago 44's baby!

No problems, but I think I paid over PayPal and I declared them as motorcycle parts, didn't get taxed on it that way ;).

They look perfect.  8)
Just give them a clean up and new gaskets
Note that the last 2 have heat sheilds underneath. This is vital to stop vapour lock!

Wow thanks guys appreciate all the help.

Thanks for the tips Peter will start looking at Solex's.

Retro Z - you shouldn't buy carbs until you know what you want from the engine. For that I'd consult someone like Peter.


I will be using the car primarily for street. I'll be ditching my l28et setup to go carbs. Not looking for big power otherwise id stay with the turbo..been there done that. Looking for something that looks and sounds nice with abit of get up and go for when i take it to off street drags etc.

Unsure of whether to - keep my whole setup 200kw L28et, microtech, aftermarket turbo, n42 man, intercooled etc.

-Or strip off the efi/turbo gear and bolt on the triples. My current engine is P90a/f54 us engine.

-Sell entire lot and start again with N42 block.

Not looking for a crazy PMC rocket engine...well not just yet!! ;D


I Might need to go for a drive in  triple carb L28 to get an idea..

I cannot suggest this enough Tai:

BUY TRIPLE 44 MIKUNIS AND GET PETE TO TUNE THEM!

While I'm happy with my 40s, for the sake of a saving a couple of hundred I have learnt the hard way just to do it right the first time.

I've had both 40's & 44's
44's are better!

That's a pretty good price  ;)
I don't know anything about Dellortos.
Scoota's familiar with them, but can remember Peter having trouble tuning some? ???

I called the guy and he said they will need a full rebuild. So not really worth it now imo

I disagree.
You'll more than likely need to rebuild whatever you buy!
And that's a price that can't be beat  ;)
If Dellortos are any good that is ???

It's also a great way to learn how they work.

I agree about rebuilding but have found several new spanish Webers for not much more like the one i showed you on facebook the other day simon for $900?. I know not many people like webers but then seem appealing to me with the huge parts support etc. Will go have a chat to my local carb joint and see whats needed fir those dellortos and how much etc.

Im pretty sure Agno has dellortos and he said Pete mac got it running good.

I'm certainly not against Webers or Dellortos.
They offer good value.

The dellortos we had trouble with were 40mm alfa carbs , they are very different from 45 dellortos , you can still get parts for them and can be tuned very well some say there better than Weber's ,people are seared off them because there the forgotten carb , but there a fine carb if the tuner has some experience

Well you will be the tuner Peter. So if you say its good then its good!
Whats your opinion on spanish made 45mm 152 webers? Ive seem several for sale at a good price. And would it be better to buy the kit from weber that is apparently jetted to suit Z cars L-6? Or other carb kits that came off an L-6?  Or wouldn't it matter as we need to play around with jetts etc?

At cruse the 152 carbs are not good, at full throttle there fine , the 45 dell carbs are a better thing buy far , if its a road car rebuild the dell 45s
