    Default New SU Carbs on Ebay

    For those that haven't seen, there's a new pair of SU carbs for sale on Ebay. This is the second round for the listing. As you can imagine with a starting bid of $1600 there aren't too many buyers

    Bruce,

    I should have known you'd comment on this post. If I'm not mistaken these carbs will also work for '71 Series II cars.

    I thought the same.

    $1,600 for two NOS carbs vs. rebuilding/refreshing...... seems like they are concourse bound.
    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    Sorry, didn't make my joke/point clear enough. Those who want their car "just like it came from the factory" would not accept rebuilt Z therapy carbs if they had the choice of real, period correct, unused, brand new SU's. Even if they ran noticibly worse... Just wouldn't be right...

    I figured that's what you were referring to. Makes total sense. It's that "period correct" status that means everything to the "purist". So they would be worth more than gold or diamonds to the right person.

    Those sure are pretty. I'd feel guilty about putting fuel into them for the first time. They'll probably end up on a show car, not a driver.

    You better have the entire rest of the engine looking new before you slap those things on.

    That part number is still good, average price is a little over $1,700.

    I hope he sells them - it will make my set worth that much more…
    Although the Part number seems to be good - I wonder if there are really many more in Nissan's Stock.

    What's wrong with Ztherapy restored carbs then ? 99% of the people will not see the difference, they use genuine parts for the rebuild.

    I feel 1600 is really to much, but somebody might bite..

    But they have to rebuild the engine anyhow ? So what's the point..

    I don't think you're missing anything. The carbs on ebay are a pair of both front and rear stuffed into one box. I didn't check into the P/N to figure out if the box is front or rear, but the point is that $1600 is a little less than half price for the pair.

    No guarantee and no returns if there's a problem, but if you just gotta have new, it's not a bad price.

    If someone wanted them, half price has to be good.

    On carpartsmanual.com the 16010-E4302 number is a twin carburetor assssembly for an AUTOMATIC, to August 1971.
    16010-E4301 is for the MANUAL transmission.

    Those on e-bay are E4302, or the box is.

    Wait a minute... You're saying that part number (that sells for new from a dealer for $1700) is actually for a matched PAIR of front and rear carbs? If that's the case, then $1600 for the pair on ebay is not a good deal.

    I was thinking that was each, not a pair, but I do see what you're saying with the parts breakdown.

    As mentioned in the Ebay ad, the owner originally bought the carbs to put on his restoration of HLS30-01138, but never used them on the car. The car was sold on Ebay in Sept. 2013. I found a previous discussion about this car and one of the sale ads still left online:

    http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/e...1138-ebay.html

    datsun 240 z vin 1138

    So, the car he bought the carbs for has a manual transmission. Now I'm wondering what the difference is between carbs for a manual and automatic transmission?

    A lot of non nissan datsun guys know the value of these parts. Unlike the Chevy and fords which u can still catalog parts. They know and try to sell datsun parts for a small fortune because most stuff is hard to find.

    I bet these are restored carbs in a nissan box. Makes the box worth a lot of money. Lol
