Car looks hot!
I heard about your build by a couple of guys form the last JDMST meet in Revesby. The topic came up when I turned up in my 75 celica.
Can't wait to see this in person.

Hey Fonz

You used to be on the AusZoku forums, yes?

At the moment , he's working on some in-line injection + Hot Cam + MSD + some hot stuff.


Oou's willing to share......just drop by at Kev's Hako , thread# 168

Hi George

It is not problem (except money!) to fit fuel injection since there are many aftermarket brands which offer injection throttle bodies in a Weber pattern. So they will fit onto my manifold etc.

But Webers can be made to work very well, and for me's it's part of the fun of the project to learn more about how to make this old technology work well.

...one day, there will be nobody who remembers how to make multiple carbs work :D So we have to keep the knowledge alive 8)

I like the induction noise the Webers make and plus the availability of parts.
I use a synchrometer to balance the carburettors.

It's a lot more accurate than using a piece of pipe and listening to the air flow in each barrel.

One thing Hazards about the Webers is their internal return spring for the butterfly. I've been told stories about how they break/fail and keep the butterflies open so just keep an eye on them. Also, usual the venturi screws can sometimes come loose and upset the operation. Tie them up with a bit of thin flexible wire to prevent this.

Yes, you shouldn't rely on the carb springs only, and the linkages should have a separate spring too.

but too many springs = very hard accelerator pedal
=)
I finally sorted my out, springs are hooked up on the lever that attaches to the butterfly rod. Much smoother and softer operation for WOT app.

Kev

Another thank you for re-posting the thread. It's wonderful to be able to re-read it...

I just sent you a PM regarding the Kameari dizzy.
Thanks,

Haha...don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the car :)

It's just that I've promised myself that I won't work on the car until I finish all the writing I'm supposed to do for the magazine :D

I've only known about the Hakosuka (and Kenmeri) Skylines for a couple of years now, but ever since I first laid eyes on the Hakosuka I was determined to get one.

So - for some reason it was just tonight I stumbled across this forum while trying to show a friend some Hakosuka pictures. Fast forward an hour of reading - I've registered for the site and subscribed to the magazine. ;)

I'm on the island of O'ahu in Hawai'i, and to my knowledge there aren't any old Skylines out here yet. There was a US Marine that was supposed to head this way with one (this year?) but I lost track of him. Going to have to try to find out if he's here or not.

Love the writeups on your car, Kev. One of my big concerns was not having a workshop manual in English for the Hakosuka - looks like you found a wiring diagram though?

Keep up the good work! ...what are the specs on those huge steamroller sized tires by the way? :)

I think there is a 4dr Hakosuka in Hawaii, he is on the www.classiczcars.com forum as Sakijo.

The rear tyres are Yokohama A352, 245/50-15, and I believe that the english wiring diagram was possibly prepared for the small handful of GC10 sedans that were sold in Europe. I think my version was originally copied out of a combined factory service manual for several models.

I guess if the wiring diagram exists, then the workshop manual may exist too, but I don't have one...

...besides, reading the instructions are for wimps :lol:

Thanks for the heads up on the user. I'll check over there at Classic Z as well. Hopefully there is an owner here in Hawaii that I can get in touch with!

Will be following your story as well, Kev. My fiance flys from HNL down to SYD a few times a year - I still haven't made the trip :(

(edit) Those rear t(i/y)res are only 245mm wide? For some reason they looked way wider than that!

I think RS Watanabe 8 spoke wheels are the only way to go here! They look awesome on the Hakosuka.
