L16 Twin Carb

Postby Vice » 18 Apr 2017 21:45

Hi there, I've had my Datsun 160J SSS (1978 510 in America) for a while now and it's a blast to drive. But I figured its about time I started actually messing with whats under the hood.

I have a twin carb L16 engine mated to a 5-speed dogleg (a little crunchier than normal manual transmissions I've driven but mechanic says trans fluid is alright), and I was planning on starting with syncing the twin carbs this weekend. Does anyone know a good tutorial or even pointers? I'm completely new to this and have never worked on a car myself, so I'm pretty hesitant I'm going to ruin something in it.

Tons of sites for SUs. Check out the Dime Quarterly backissues at The 510 Archives. There are three comprehensive articles I wrote back in the day. My old website is long gone, but the info lives in the pages of DQ.
