Gav,

 

If you are after an LD28 crank you might care to try Stewart Wilkins in Sydney. I know he acquired several recently of which two were purchased by members of the Z club , he may be able to help you out.

Ok so who was it?

 

I emailed stewart about the crankshaft and he told me he had 1 so I replied with I'll take it and no response for a day or so. So I phoned him and he told me someone from "Melbourne" already called and bought it.

 

However I'm not angry , because he told me he was gonna order more in from the states or wherever he gets them and he'd contact me.

 

Approx 3 weeks which is fine because it gives me time to get some extra cash saved for other parts and I have set my goal for the end of the year anyway .

 

Just curious if it was anybody here?

 

Cheaky btw very cheaky

$800 which to me is the best price I've seen seeing as I can't get 1 anywhere and importing one is even more expensive.

Yer thats not too bad hey!

Still you would get alot more power from wacking a set of triples on but the cost of fuel would add up

Now now who's to say that I'm not going to put tripples on her after that ?

 

seriously I will be eventually putting the multiple throttle body set up or tripple carbs I guess it will depend on how often i use the car. If it ends up a Sunday car then probably get away with tripples however if I use the car regularly it would be more drivable and sensible on fuel with the injected set up .

 

For now it's the SU's while I refurbish the interior and take care of the suspension and brakes. Before i come back to the engine again .
