Ben's mk3 zephyr discussion

Recommended Posts

I had one when I was 18.....was fun,till I blew the diff and was quoted $600 for a new diff head. So I sold it and the guy that bought it chopped it into a Ute for his lawn mowing business.

Bolt through the B pillar.is pretty standard on old stuff

So no dramas with revin even if not factory? Fairly confident that a bolt like that isn't factory.

Nope lots come from the factory like that. Have had all-sorts with that set up. Has not been an issue.

Are you gonna twin crab it? 

Keeping a casual eye out for a twin carb manifold, something might crop up. I'm yet to decide if I'm going to stick with the original motor or do a barra swap, so not too keen on sinking big money into bits for this motor yet. Will see how it runs once I get it on the road.

6 FCR 41mm Keihins? 

Three, it shares inlet ports between 1/2, 3/4, 5/6 but something like that could be the go if I decide to keep the zephyr six motor.

Just make a manifold with 6 branches to siamese at the port? 

Could be an option. Otherwise I have a twin choke Weber off the escort I could probably make a manifold up for

I looked at a barra conversion.. But I think they're too long, and you can get pretty good power out of a worked 6, 220 odd hp

Loving the clean workshop floor and space to move around the car, looks very inviting to get shit done

Is the factory colour peppermint green? 

Nah, factory colour seems to be beige. Will be painting it Oxford Blue eventually
