    Help! - Seized L26?

    Sounds like a fuel problem if squirting fuel gets it to fire.... Are you sure the L24 was running Ok before removed?

    TIM260 - The Story

    Well thanks Gav for passing on the contact from the lady that I bought me Zed from some 10 years ago. She had been looking for a while to try and find it and was very happy to see it was still well cared for..... She is sending me photos of her restoration work, cannot wait.

    No Gauges Or Charging

    Have seen this issue before but I did not solve it myself. Strangely it was a auto (2+2). The clock worked but the tacho, fuel and temp did not. The guy she bought the car off said "they used to work". When I looked at the wiring diagram I remember seeing something that linked the power to the gauges with the auto kick down switch. I checked all that wiring and could not fault it She took it to a auto electrician who charged her $800 to fix it and said someone had messed up the wiring....................... Good luck...I would like to know the issue

    Su Round Top Linkage Setup

    Could not find a thread here anywhere here but has anyone put up much about the various setups on the SU's? Firstly my 2+2 has what I thought was the standard setup but with a closer look it was not getting full throttle. The geometry appears wrong with the way in which the adjustable arm that goes down perpendicular to the linkage between the carbies. When I compared them to a mate's L20A Fairlady (import JDM-last photo) its setup was different in that the centre linkage was in board of the centreline of the shaft between the carbies. This resulted in the shaft rotating counter clockwise looking from the front of the car whereas mine rotates clockwise. Checking my son's 2+2 it rotated the same direction as mine. 1. Has anyone come across differing shaft rotation directions before? 2. Has anyone seen a instruction to set up the linkages
