what is a samurai spec engine?
All in the book and Moggy has one for sale.
And ffs, please, please stop writing Samurai when it's Samuri. Thanks
With all the paperwork that goes with this engine/head - yes because THAT's what buyers want - a known make or name....so yes Matt, this engine in a Sammy (and only because of the letters) will increase a sam's value....hence why the seller (he aint stupid) has put a strong price.
Jeez, Alan'll slit his wrists when he sees how we're all talking rad and brown the moment he turns his back and goes off to Spain on holiday.
What book? can't you just paste the spec here? From my limited knowledge there wasn't a spec for the cars at all? Some had carbs and an exhaust, some had carbs/engine work/cut down springs, some had effort put into them. all samurais?
I've done that before, scanned and pasted - didn't you download it ? Saying no more 'til your correct your spellchecker.
Its not on here, no one seems to know the answer?
Pages 229-231 ISBN 978-0-9564656-0-3
That's wot buyers want,it's all bollox really ain't it,plenty of Zeds for sale including a samuri so it seems there ain't any buyers out there anyway,I'll stick with my 3.1 thanks,if it was a Ford lump it would've gone in an instant,just not the market out there it seems that some think there is and others asking silly money,hence still for sale ,cars and parts,dream on campers
Over the years when I used to go to car shows such as Ashby Foleville etc I met more than a handful of car enthusiasts who were under the impression that "Samuri" was an officially sanctioned Nissan variant of the S30
Comments such as "shame its not a Samuri", "My Dad had one, it had 300 horse power" and "Nissan didn't make very many" were not uncommon, I used to try and correct them, informing them that they weren't anything to do with Nissan/Datsun and were "produced" by a private enterprise on a case by case basis using what was on the shelf at the time and they weren't bad efforts for a man in a shed with a die grinder, but it fell on deaf ears..... rose coloured spectacles and all that, I sometimes wonder if those same people frequent this forum.
Haha well I had someone come up to me on Sunday at a car show and asked if it was the one been sold on eBay I explained ino the guy Johnny and his is a 260z mines a 240z then also got asked if a guy called Mick had worked on the car and put the webbers on it I sed no bud not him there still out there Steve
Mick was the guy who made the Samuri springs.
Mick grew potatoes in his field and wot Skids says makes sense as there are stil engine builders out there building engines out of wots on the shelf
Back on eBay again, at a somewhat reduced price
