Re: DCOEs for L20B and few other questions

Well, There certainly are lots of options to choose from. I've seen the motorcycle ITB/carb setup done a couple of places, and it sure does look pretty wild. I believe you when you say it must respond well Datzunmike. I don't know exactly what redline is on an R1, but think those carbs should measur...

Re: DCOEs for L20B and few other questions

Actually, might as well attach some photos (actually links, I guess) to make sure I'm not getting entirely the wrong stuff. The intakes look longer than some others I've seen available for L engines. DCOEs look like pretty big carbs, so I don't want to get stuff that will cause fitment problems. htt...

Re: DCOEs for L20B and few other questions

Again, great advice. I tinker with all my stuff, and know a little about carbs on bikes, but as stated elsewhere this is my first experience with a carb'd car, and everything is a learning experience. 2 x DCOEs it is then.... I didn't know they don't have a fast idle circuit, so that's interesting, ...

Re: DCOEs for L20B and few other questions

Excellent advice on both counts. Thanks very much. I had been looking at Innovate widebands to mount one on my bike for tuning a new set of carbs. Glad to hear that the AEM is solid unit, and around the same price. I'll get one of those and a couple of bungs and caps so I can move it around my vehic...

DCOEs for L20B and few other questions

Hello, Still fairly new to the Realm, so pardon me if this has all been discussed ad infinitum already, but I've done a little reading and didn't come up with too much. I'm probably at least half a year away from being able to actually *get* my car, so decided to start collecting a few choice items ...

Re: Hello From Southern Ontario

Thanks Byron, It's been a little while since I actually logged on here and checked up on things. (clearly) The closed borders and my car having been stuck in the US for the last 9 months has taken some of the wind out of my sails. I'm still happy I found and bought one, but it's hard to stay really ...

Re: WTB - 1971 Wagon Rear Hatch - Ontario, CAN

Thanks Mike, I will certainly keep that in mind. It's a long way to go, but since I am officially in no rush, it makes it easier to weigh all options. As far as I am aware, the hatch in the car has glass in good condition, so that could be swapped over. (On the other hand, how much does a new sheet ...

Re: WTB - 1971 Wagon Rear Hatch - Ontario, CAN

Yeah, I expect that it will probably cost around that much... But, on the other hand, unless something close to hand pops up in the next little while, it doesn't leave me a lot of choice. Anything getting shipped across the border is dicey at the moment, and likely to cost as much. In any case, than...

Re: WTB - 1971 Wagon Rear Hatch - Ontario, CAN

Thanks,
I’ll investigate those. Despite being reasonably computer savvy, craiglist searching proficiency eludes me.
$250 sounds fair? Just wonder what shipping might be like across the country. Well, gotta pay to play, I suppose.

WTB - 1971 Wagon Rear Hatch - Ontario, CAN

Hey all, While i wait for the borders to open back up again, eventually, I figured I might as well start looking for some of the parts I know/think I am going to need for the Goon when I can finally get it home up here to Canada. Owner told me the wagon hatch MAY be salvageable, but it's pretty roug...

Hello From Southern Ontario

Hey All, Trying again to post a welcome and hello. I think my first was lost in the ether. I recently found and paid up for a '70 510 wagon, although at present I may have an awfully hard time getting my hands on it, since it is across the border on the US side, and I don't think vintage cars are co...

Hello From Southern Ontario

Hey All, Just wanted to check and do the newbie welcome to the forum hello. I'm in the process of bringing a '70 510 wagon across the border to Canada, and while I'm currently being frustrated a little by the current state of affairs, hopefully it will be here by the summer. I've been trolling throu...
