I got a rubber from Gernot, thanks to austria. Asking a lot of questions on the restoration, no problem!

Finished my 4 carb. What can i say: i like them all especially the economical nikki. Drive a long distance for visit some car meeting is not the problem anymore. Very driveable with cruiscontrol and choke.
It need 8 carburattor to built this fantasic four and three years and some grey hairs. I learned a lot but doesn´t like to smell fuel in the next time and be happy finished this project.
Here the result.

Long time ago there was no update. I always like to drive and have fun without any issue. My diff was making some noises, so i decided to buy an mx 5 torsen 2 diff gear ratio 3,6:1 from a 10 year anniversary with 6 speed transmission. 3,6:1 is one of the longest ratio you can get for the 7" diff. But it is to long for my car cause of the big wheel 225 50 16 rear. I am more after an 4,1:1 or 4,3:1 ratio.

Thousands of kilometers of driving with the new diff (ratio 3,9:1). What could i say: I am very happy it works so much more silent then the OEM. Not sure how much the Motul gear oil competion 75W/140 synthetic takes a part of them. The power you get and the style of lock the wheels and drive is nearly the same with driving the new Mx5.

First time i took curil for sealing and there are problems more and more oil drops on the garage floor. So i change the seal and went to elring dirko ht.
I loosen the diff with the mounted axles and the 5 mm split allowed me change the seal. I also have to change the new expensive oil again. But this dirko stuff solve the problem. I will get more and more a fan of the elring Company.
