If they are brand new, never fitted. They're NOS from 20 years ago. If that's what you're after, that's the going rate. Good sets are getting harder to find.
I was chastised for putting out an Expression Of Interest, a while back, for my set that had never been fitted also.
How many times are people going to buy a cheap set, then spend a fortune fixing them? It's the same theory as the cars themselves. Buy the best you can afford!

Whilst I somewhat agree with the sentiment, we have to be realistic and acknowledge that supply an demand is driving some prices up! Of course there is OER as an alternative and they are much cheaper. But people want the 'period' correct parts.

I'm sure you understand though George, you are after all restoring HS30 00019.

Yep +1.

I see it all the time, chrome trim headlight covers? $700-$1000 USD now. Long stalk fender mirrors are $600 AU + (complete), Broken, not working and incomplete Rally Clock? $700 AU+

Prices for hard to find parts are becoming a bit like telephone numbers to paraphrase Tiff Needell,

I am thinking about selling my mikuni 40s the whole lot (linkage, manifold, carb, trumpter, unifilter assembly) if you're in Melbourne I could take you for a test drive.

PM me.

Yes. Yes it was!
Transport company did not secure the crate the engine was in, it tipped over, somehow,,, and the body of the rear carby had cracked.
Their insurance covered the cost.
Engine was being sent to engine builder in Coffs Harbour.
After that incident, I now personally deliver and collect.

Think I need to put mine (44s) in a safety deposit box.

I have seen this guy in Japan selling them on eBay US.

Have contacted this guy 2 weeks ago as he has rebuilt 44s going also on ebay. BUT he will not ship to Australia!!!!!!!!!!!

5800 is way out of my range:) Im actually in contact with Ottomoto about his OERs at the moment but hard to get info about them as few on here have had any experience with them................MOSSY........I have pmed you about yours.

My budget has been lifted as the prices the MOPAR boys are offering for my Genuine RT charger webers are well over what i was expecting but, these Mikunis are a freaking expensive bit of kit!

Im wondering given that I dont have a massive dollar engine and the car will never be a show winner whether i go cheaper 'inferior' spanish carbs that are brand new.....at least i know they havent been played with.........And I know Im probably restating a discussion thats been had many times but I have never seen solid evidence they are inferior......it just seems to be opinions or purists simply stating genuine italian carbs 'just better'.........can anyone give me a solid case against the Spanish carbs? I'm handy with the car but not a mechanical engineer so carbs are a little over my head so would appreciate some advice :)

Any reason why he won't ship to Australia? Is that what he told you or what his eBay store says? There is ways around this.

his response was:


2015-04-15 20:29 GMT+09:00
"Hi!

I wish I could.
But, my shipping company does not ship any carburetors  to personal customers in Australia.
There was one Australian customer arranged to come to pick up my carburetors through his friend's company named something like"Japan's pick up?"
But, I don't know any companies that can arrange to shipp carburetors to Australia.

Sorry"


Grr i dont get it as makes no real sense........ his first email to me said he doesn't ship to personal customers then when I called him on it and said "but you have them advertised on ebay for 'personal' customers" he sent the above response.

Contact Jesse Streeter, have the carbs shipped to him. He will charge a fee, but good to deal with.
