Parking Brake Cable

After first road test I realized that I need a major adjustment of parking brake cable. The cables are in fair condition but linkage/tensioner are heavily corroded. I am thinking about replacing complete cable assembly. Does anyone know where to get a replacement or any alternate solution? Thank you.

Re: Going Back to 70's

Finally, after 15 years of tight budget one-man work, my 510 is tested on the road. It was far from a perfect run but everything worked as it was designed. Now I know what to do for fine tuning. Thank you for your (continuing) support and technical input from all fellow dimers. More than once I was ...

Re: WTB 68' gas filler door

Someone told me that my door was from 68. It fits OK on my 71 body but obviously off-centered.
I am looking for a right one for my 71 body.

Re: LLC leak from head gasket

Thank you all for inputs. I just realized that AF/LLC was JIS terminology only. Yes, I followed torque order and procedure up to and from 39.8 ftlbs. It looks like the leak is from warpage or not-cleaned-enough surface. I will remove the head to check warpage and surface hoping the block is OK. Does...

LLC leak from head gasket

I assembled A87 L18 engine and installed it four years ago with LLC filled. But then, right before firing the engine I had a health issue and left my project for few years. I did not notice back then but there was a minor LLC leak on the floor. I started working on it and last year finally I fired u...

Gas Door

Just curious if there is more than one type of gas door for 1969 - 71 sedan.
Got my door and it looked OK and fits but obviously off centered.

Re: SU Twin Carb Heat Shield Plate

This SU assembly itself is already a Frankenstein and I do not feel comfortable with further modification. I remember Mikuni kit was bolt-on.

Re: SU Twin Carb Heat Shield Plate

Thanks, guys. The problem was not a heat sheild. By the way, thanks all...I made a very good one. I already removed SU and put the single carb manifold back on so I placed SU assembly on it and took a picture just to show my problem. The receptacle on the intake manifold does not align with the link...

Re: SU Twin Carb Heat Shield Plate

Thanks for your input.

I made a heat sheld plate and mounted SU asssembly. It fits on the engine OK but it did not work. It hits kick down switch (?? no big deal) and the gas pedal linkage does not line up with manifold side. I decided to overhaul bad Hitachi single carb.

Re: SU Twin Carb Heat Shield Plate

Thank you all. Now I got a good idea of what I am looking for. Mine came with two return springs but it seems like a "hybrid" of 240Z SU and 510 manifold.

Thanks again.

SU Twin Carb Heat Shield Plate

I am planning to replace my bad Hitachi stock carb with SU Twin. I am missing a heat shield plate and think I have to make one. Does anyone have a template or dimensional info of this shield plate? It has been many years and I do not recall how it looked like. I need this mainly to connect carb retu...
