    L24 Fan info

    Anyways, the car (L24) came with a stuffed fan clutch and a 280 plastic fan. So I got a new clutch for $90 and now the bloody thing roars like helicopter. As far as I can tell, the clutch unit is working correctly ( I think they're geared to 30% engine speed via a viscous coupling), but I wonder if I can get a smaller fan I know that the originals came with the 4 blade metal fan, but all the plastic fans for the 240 seem to come in 7 or 8 blade versions ( '72 on, also listed for 260/280) is the 7 blade one smaller in diameter and any quieter?
  2. surely someone has a a set in vic?

    problem seems to be the offset, most non datsun cars seem to have + 20 offset, whereas the z is supposed to be 0

    Alternatives to L28 plastic fan

    I'm back after a brief absence and lots of work on my new love interest - a suzuki lj80 rebuild Anyways, the car (L24) came with a stuffed fan clutch and a 280 plastic fan. So I got a new clutch for $90 and now the bloody thing roars like helicopter. As far as I can tell, the clutch unit is working correctly ( I think they're geared to 30% engine speed via a viscous coupling), but I wonder if I can get a smaller fan I know that the originals came with the 4 blade metal fan, but all the plastic fans for the 240 seem to come in 7 or 8 blade versions ( '72 on, also listed for 260/280) is the 7 blade one smaller in diameter and any quieter?

    Clouds Of Smoke Behind The Car - Why?

    to all helpful top blokes on the thread, here's the update took to ritche, he kept the car for a day, ran it up on the dyno and diagnosed bent/worn needles. with my wallet $600 lighter, and the needles replaced runs much , much better. so high 5 to lurch for the tip

    Clouds Of Smoke Behind The Car - Why?

    i don;t have a private tuner person or a dyno - just me anyway, took the tops of the float chamber and found that the gap on the rear carb was too small eg too much fuel in the chamber. this looks like the primary cause at this stage. reset to1.4cm from float to surface, blowing air thru the inlet for a reference point on valve close also found some petrol residue around the knob which i think its been leaking over the top of the mixture tube
