Bearded Baldy's 1985 Mitsi L200


Recommended Posts

Have been dicking around with other projects lately.

Finished swapping inlet/carb and linkages on the rideon so i can mow the lawns the lazy way after 2 years of procrastinating.

Built a brazier from some old rims and when cutting the opening covered the good ute in sparks. Rained overnight and now the ute has freckles over the roof and one door. F$#@^#@%=#!

Rebuilt the combo switch and tested. That worked at least.

Stripped, cleaned and checked the numbers of the carb i got from @Sambo, will order new jets etc one day now i know what i need. Have a transdapt adaptor for the swap whenever that happens. Nice bit of kit to be honest.

Have not moved either white ute or parts ute, since the last photo. Been procrasting fixing the combo switch, now thats done i should just go for a drive somewhere.

Carby rebuilt with various new bits, set it all up for 2l baseline, new jets etc... realised i forgot to order a new choke pulloff unit so will do that monday.

Might have sold the deck off the parts ute, too cheap but needing the funds for more parts buying so hoping guy turns up next week.

Bloody hell just looked at the date from the last post, haven't done anything to the ute since october aside from a few runs up n down the street to keep the battery charged.

Got daughter outside with me this morning and we swapped the carbs over. Did a bit of cutting and grinding of the factory cable mounts and throttle wheel, drilled/tapped out the coolant port in the manifold and glued in a bung.

Testfired and it runs, will fill with water after lunch and warm it up, set mixture etc. Have bypassed the water choke for now, no need for it over summer anyway. Pics to follow.

Not sure what i ran this one on, possibly my falcon when it had the single barrel stromberg? Or i swapped the weber base with one of the guys and got this in return.

Oh well, best be ordering a new one next week. Already loving how much freeer the engine feels, haven't messed with timing yet just warmed it up and set mixture by ear.

When i get back to work i will play some more, but for now ooohhh boy i forgot how the old webers sound with no airbox.

Shit yeah wof passed as expected, will need a set of tires for the next one as these have perished.

Cleaned up the plugs on the back of the instrument cluster as the guages have been playing up lately, bumped the timing up a bit too, working through the list of jobs to do. Diff swap to better ratio is the next big one.
