    Carb removal time....for anyone used to working on modern cars where the inlet manifold is a PITA to take on and off, this is almost comically easy..



    Just remove the fuel lines, unhook the throttle linkages, undo 12 bolts and voila


    These are bound for Carburettor Services Co on Monday


    They look like they could *really* use a sprucing up


    And once the carbs are gone, there really isn't anything...at all...on the passenger side of the engine bay


    There is a bit of dodginess in the carb setup though...firstly the throttle linkage is badly set up and only allows 75% throttle when the pedal is floored (not difficult to fix) but there are only these phenolic spacers on the manifold.


    By rights there should be some o-ringed "softmounts" that rubber mount the carbs to isolate them from vibration...I'll have to get some

    Nice bonus I discovered...Watanabe wheelnuts


    The more time I spend looking over the car the more solid and well preserved it seems...the restoration must not have been cheap (you can see where there is a patch of new steel welded in tho).




    Typical JDM though, the work is a little rough and unfinished in the places you can't see...but at least they painted the engine bay body colour!


    Well the important thing is that the car seems to be solid, so I think to preserve it I'll book the car in for some sort of wax injection rustproofing or something.

    Just for the record, what we are looking at here is a GT-R S20 engine right?
