On a recent auszcar workshop day i filmed Peter Mac explaining L series camshaft timing.
280Z Triple Weber 45 - First Start
UPDATE - After 3 months of light use, this engine failed. The rockers kept coming off the posts, and eventually pistons made contact with the valves. 3000$ engine down the drain... stay away from ebay rebuilt engines! New Rebello 3.0L has taken its place - See my other videos.
Datsun S30 240Z 3.2 Stroker getting sideways
3.2 stroker motor. Youtube ruined the video quality. This was a HD quality video. Youtube did this to many many of my old videos. Sucks balls.
1970 Datsun 240Z/L28- triple Weber 40DCOEs
Watch for the surprise at the end (!)...didn't get pulled though. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjpmkfdnNvI for the same engine with SU carbs...which is a 1983 F54 L28 w/P90 turbo head, 10:1 compression, 15lb flywheel. The engines sound similar but the Webers have much more torque than the SUs, pull very hard in 1st and 2nd and easily to 7,000 in 3rd. I have a Centerforce 2 clutch now which make changing gears a tick slower compared to my earlier video however. The car is definitely faster through each gear with solid power to redline.
