Re: Momo wheel installed... but difficulties with the momo hub...

Mine is the same. That is just the way they are. For the turn signal cancel prong I cut mine off the drilled and tapped a hole where it should be and put in a set screw sticking out the correct amount. I got tired of the turn signals canceling as soon as you move the wheel one direction and not can...

Re: Momo wheel installed... but difficulties with the momo hub...

Okay... I pulled it off, adjusted it (straight was not straight... damn it), and bent the horn connector thing and it's alive now! (don't) Mind the gap?

Here is a picture of my Momo hub...there is a gap...did you carefully bend the horn power metal strip down a tad to contact the ring?
No... but I will do that.

Momo wheel installed... but difficulties with the momo hub...

Howdy, I got tired of the ghetto Grant wheel the previous owner installed, so I finally picked up a new Momo wheel and hub. The wheel looks amazing... but the hub was kind of sloppily formed and tight. I was able to get it mostly installed but there's a gap between the back of the hub and the horn w...

Did a NEW accelerator pump diaphragm come in the kit?
Sure did. That was what led me to rebuild... the old one was leaking gas on the exhaust manifold... a lot of it.

I've looked - fuel most certainly does come out on throttle blip. The throttle linkage is pretty worn, for sure. I'm resisting the urge to go full dual DCOE 40 style... talk me out of it? :D

Re: Rebuilt weber 32/36 carb... but curious as to what the electrical wire connecting to it is

ok... I suck at this. The gaskets (there were two... odd) from the official Redline Weber box were both the wrong new style. After rebuilding, it seems to run on three cylinders until it's warm, unless I lean the engine way out (the idle screw is almost all the way in, not the ~2 full turns out). I'...

How to disassemble the dashboard area? Factory under dash AC unit is in place...

I've searched (but obviously not good enough) and I can't seem to find any graphical representations of how to remove the dashboard and/or parts of it. My speedometer doesn't work, and I'd like to get that fixed (although it could be anything, cable, 280zx transmission, etc), the dash pad itself is ...

Re: Rebuilt weber 32/36 carb... but curious as to what the electrical wire connecting to it is

Did you give those "Booster" venturis a wiggle? They tend to loosen up over time and can give a bad signal if they leak air. Also important that you got the right top gasket in place, did you put a new one in? Here is a link to my 32/36 repair guide, hope that might help some. http://www.the510real...

Re: Rebuilt weber 32/36 carb... but curious as to what the electrical wire connecting to it is

The red wire looks like it is the power wire for the electric choke on the carb. It should be hooked up to switched power......only comes ON when you start the car. Inside that choke mechanism is a coiled heat sink spring, so the choke is ON at initial cold start up. After you start the car, the po...

Re: Best weatherstripping/squeegie/felt/etc source?

Giant box of goodies showed up... now... the hard parts... to get the old s(#*@& off. Holy crap is it sun rotted, and I didn't realize just how much of a pain this would be... but the parts look A+!

For sure that's on my to do list... along with changing the spark plugs, changing the oil, replacing suspension bushings, wheel bearing(s?), etc.
