Hey Psycho,

Dont mean to scare you but, were they second hand? and how can you be sure all your maal is in perfect condition?
Im quite skeptical about buying second hand electronic or mechanical goods off ebay...

Goodluck though!

Rehaan,

I have seen the condition of them off the web and they just needed a bit of rust removal but on the overall they are a good buy as they have the complete Kit available on them if I had to buy each of theose pieces individually I would have paid a small fortune for them... have tried my hand with a Junked Solex quadrajet before this on my car and it really has worked wonders to it... hope I can take this even forward PS: I am more of a hands on guy so I am not too worried.

Hi Rehaan,

Just took the delivery of the carbs today and they are in perfect working condition with no parts missing or not working... looks like a good investment

Looking forward to rock soon as I am back in town next Monday.

Just a bit of change in plans have gotten myself a second engine for the webber setup was getting a bit worried of ruining my orig setup by messin around with it a bit too much. The engine I managed to get is an orignal Isuzu 1.8 and work has already started on it... will post the updates once it is done ...

(BTW: Managed to get to 21 secs for a quarter mile... purty good for a first try on a 1270 kg car)

Ok pal, I'll get you one engine. It'll be a present from me.
Only condition is you have to dazzle me with your current one.
Only once it's ready of course.
