Pack 3

VERY picture-heavy section...

This section deals mainly with building and detailing the fuel system and surrounding electrics.
The kit is very highly detailed. Indeed, the linkages for the injection system need very great care during assembly as the parts are very small and must be put together correctly.

It is advised to de-seam all of the small components and repaint them for a more realistic look.

The 1967 Carrera used a Bosch mechanical fuel injection system which was state of the art at the time. The kit represents the system very well but a few additions can make a lot of difference.

The fuel pump on the sidewall of the rear white ‘tray’ should have braided hoses fitted. One hose goes to the fuel tank via a hole in the tray floor and the other hose should attach to the injector pump.

Drill small holes in the relevant places and use pieces of dressmaker’s pins as attachments. The pointed end of the pin can easily be pushed into the end of a piece of suitable hose/wire.
The braided wire shown in the pictures comes from cheap earbud headphones from a typical ‘Pound shop’.
Cut the pin, and leave about 5mm protruding. This can be glued into the drilled hole using cyano glue.

Wiring looms can be made using very thin wire twisted together and binding it with surgical tape, coloured black with a marker pen.

The throttle return spring is made from thin wire bound around a pin. 10 ‘turns’ will give a good sized spring. Remove the pin and cut the wire, bend the ends as shown in the picture to make a spring 10mm long. Glue in place as shown.

Low tension wires can be added to the coil. Two small holes should be drilled in the coil to accept the wires. Twist these together to be connected later on.

The engine bay should be very lightly washed with a dilute mix of matt black and white spirit to give a used look, but not filthy.
