Furb, so happy you put up a picture of a car in the background as I thought for a second you was spraying the shell in your bathroom with the shower curtain in the picture :Giggle:Giggle

Can\'t wait to see the car in paint and then up n running  :Thumbs-up

I will hide my poor used example in the shadows when this hits the road :rollin
All the best Clive

Haha i wish my bathroom was big enough for that ;)
This is my painters prep room, where it\'s been taking up space for over 8 months.
I\'m really happy the end is getting near!

No hiding Clive, we need to drive it side by side on the road!

fitted an oil supply to the float bowls so that i get a bit of premix next to the housing injectors for better lubrication of the apex-seals. its also adjustable so i can prevent saturation of the float bowls


made a bracket for the throttle and choke cables

Furb, just an observation,

I am sure the RX-4 takes its oil in under the venturies which means the oil gets washed in with a petrol spray.

I am a little worried that you may clog up some of the small jets doing it the way you are ?

If you want I will pull the air filter off the RX-4 and double check
All the best Clive

Many different ways to do it.
Feeding it into the float bowl is something that has been done many times on various types of carb.

It\'s not even that much, cause it\'s only 1 line feeding 1 carb feeding 1 rotor.
The amount of fuel going through it should flush it more then enough.
I can also adjust the flow on these fittings, to find the right amount of premix.

If that doesn\'t work out after all, I can always plug up the holes and add fittings to the manifold.
but I doubt it will be an issue

finally finished my throttle and choke linkages of the carb setup
once the manifold is done, i will do the final adjustments and tack everything in place

heated and moulded the stock oil supply lines to fit in the new situation


made the mechanical link between throttle and oil pump




mounted the throttle cable



choke cable can also be fitted





update! it's finally got some colour ;)

first the doors in the basecoat




the floors sprayed with a couple of layers of bodycoat for protection and noise reduction



and then painted the interior

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.
