  1. yay, came for the ACVW problems, stayed for the ACWV problems.
  2. @nzstatoDo you have an engine crane? Could use my van to collect and store wherever. Keen to check out your setup. @DoBro Jesus whats old mate with the engine's timeframe? Going to invegiggle tomorrow so could do sunday or a weekday
  3. I can definitely transport and store it no worries but will need a hand to pick up from sellers and move into the shed at my end as i dont have an engine crane down here yet and diesel engines usually weigh more than the moon. I hope its for lada wag. Ps giz lada wag.
  4. Is pretty good, i got heaps of 2300 parts from there i couldn't find anywhere else. (or where way cheaper than other places that did have stuff) i think he does all sorts of 'foreign' makes out of a big warehouse in the middle of nowhere Georgia under the "mr<make>" tagline - they are on ebay as well so you can use their purchase protection thing if you wanted. Flipping carbs man! Definitely worth spending your time with the Weber over the Solex, just better all round, even if they are both 50 years old now,.
  5. Fiat factory manifold already flows pretty good? Port matching the manifold to the head and a better flowing (ie slightly bigger) exhaust can do a lot to open her up. Extractors look blooming cool tho!
  6. Lovely work on all the components and plating. I dont think i would have the patience! Air cleaner mod is A++
  7. youshop is great for this. Shipping in US is cheap or even free, but for some reason outside of US is $$$ crazy. On lots of forums even Canadian dudes reckon its worth the savings to cross the border to pick up from a drop ship place.
  8. Weber & dellorto carbs like low pressure high flow, assume the mitsi carb will be the same? 2 to 4Psi max otherwise the needle valve has trouble controlling the fuel level in the float bowl, resulting in running issues. A 6psi pump with a 1-4psi reg will be fine i reckon
  9. I have no complaints about Ladapower.com , but beware the cheap versions are usually *really* shitty Shipping vs price ratio always makes adding extra bits worthwhile. Plus sometimes get a lada calendar, pen and ukraine chocolates. Ive also used Mrfiat.com Mal euro-italian in albany There is a lot of crossover between lada and 125 as well, so start in the 2101 section
  10. Sweet so far! Cars are still up norrrth, planned collection mission for this weekend cancelled got all the time and space now, just no projects to work on.
  11. The last blurry photo looks like the elecrtomagnetic fan power supply thing. The spring presses a carbon bush aganst the back of the fan and when the temp sensor comes on it locks the fan on. I have a few of those points style regulators, on my lockup. i think @Testament is still rocking his? The solid state lada ones are a plugin replacement. I hid mine in a gutted points box so looks are the same
  12. Yep, can leave at mine no worries.
  13. i use these https://www.torpedo7.co.nz/products/-0S8AN6SE/title/ear-plugs-2-0 for surfing as i have bad surfers ear. They cut out the wind but still let you hear, and come with various bits to let you size them to your earholes - recommended They have come out with a v3.0 now, so wait till T7 puts the v2 on special (the price is more than i paid from a proper surf shop a couple years ago, just first link i found)
  14. Wow. Thats the 'manual' trifecta. Gonna need metalwork, woodwork, and sewing before you can do any 'home ecc' in the back. I believe in you.
