I managed to get my hands on a unique item in that only a few have in the world. It is a surge tank for a L series engine (240z, 280z, 280zx) to run a turbo or supercharger system with triple carburetors. It is actually a replica unit of the HKS series 1 surge tank made from sheet metal.
Yes it was in a garage and forgotten for decades it looks like to me but I am curious if it can still work up to 1.1 BAR as that is the max on Mikuni Solex carbs I am willing to run. On the upper right hand side you can see the location of what looks like to be a recirculating valve or discharge unit for extra pressure.
Below you can see the inlet where the air will be blown into. Unfortunatley I will need to source some bolts for the cover as all but two are missing. Then not to mention I will need a gasket to prevent any leaks of air.
You can see I may also need to repair some of the metal as the inlet distribution pipe is a bit dented. This will have an impact of air distribution to the carburetors on that side. It can make the carbs run rich and throw the efficiency off par.
Will this was a lucky find and a bargain to match at $180 USD. Maybe I can replicate this and provide to the masses this rare part. Only time will see.
