Re: Dual Intake Manifold

I've seen the curved one crack. Most likely due to the weight of the carbs. If you use it consider making a brace.

Re: Door Mounting and Alignment ???

I've seen bent or twisted door. While the hinges are bolted tight grab the back of the door and twist. First at the bottom and top of door panel. If you grab top of window it's easy to just bend the frame. If you get the panel fit right start on the window frame. If the frame is hitting the shell it...

Re: Insane wind storm in White Rock

Power restored to our grid. But they didn't hook up our transformer. So I assume it's fried. Lord knows when they get back to individual customers. I expect another week. Hope the transformer is not on a boat from China. We have wood heat and my son's house.has power and he has the well. So we have ...

Re: Insane wind storm in White Rock

I had 3 large fir drop. First time in 27 years I've had that happen. All across the power lines and road. Got firewood for next year covered. About to head out and survey in daylight and sharpen the saw. We won't have power for a few days.

Re: 510 Article in Globe & Mail (Canada)

Vancouver locals might remember that white 510 as the bre clone that had been for sale for a decade or so. The owner decided to put it together and paint it. Maybe the market has caught up to his asking price.

Re: NANKANG AR-1 group buy

Can we confirm that 13's will be available in Canada. The website only goes to 14's. I also would be more interested if I could run my libres.

Re: WTB L16 intake for SU carbs

I wasn't sure or the size, 46 mm sounds right. I've also heard you can 2 bolt them. I run the z carbs on a custom intake on my lz2.3. I like them. Once setup they are usually trouble free. Full sets of 38's show up a few times a year on Facebook. I keep an eye on Datsun parts and needs, or dpan. A W...

Re: Cam Identification

Fwiw I've seen the old 240z spraybars get loose with age. The front tube fell out of a bar on a friend's z. Got caught up in the chain skipped a tooth and bent a valve. Quite an expensive ordeal. I looked at 2 I had and both would wiggle. Not sure how the tubes were originally held in place. Just fo...

You are correct, I reread the email I received with the pictures. It is Don Lamont. Glad you could add another name to the face.

I didn't mind the hijack. Here's a picture of Doug, ( the guy with the helmet in his hand) to bookend the thread. Looks like Westwood wasn't the only place he raced the roadster.

Doug's automotive

This picture was sent to me today. My new neighbor is from New Westminster and was around in this time period and knew Doug. This might even be before Keith's time. A cool shot and advert none the less

Re: WTB LH headlamp housing and hood release cable

The release cables on eBay are for RHD. But I've installed 2 on the left. You have to change how they are mounted. One I installed lower with the lever pointed upwards. The other horizontally under the dash. Better than a frayed cable and I've not seen another option.
