Hey guys - if anyone can help I'd really like to get an overflow bottle mount so I can mount the original overflow / expansion tank. Cheers

Are the first two digits to that Part ID number 67-521?
If yes, it is the same part as a 626 mounting bracket P/No 854553225.

Also looks the same mounting bracket as gen 1 RX7.

Thanks heaps Philip - I ventured down to my friendly local Mazda Dealership today with your part no and the bracket is still available and has been ordered :tu: 8)

Small update - my local friendly Mazda dealership passed me with a new Warrant / Roadworthy.

My little 12a Bridgeport is running out of gas at 6000 rpm - the little facet ticker style pump installed by the previous owner is not up to the job so I've ordered a Carter 4070 which I can run on my 4 barrel nikki without the need for a fuel reg.

I have also fitted some 13x7 hotwires & bridgestone eagers

Wicked car!! Brings back memories i had 13x7 hot wires on my first car, a 76 929 sedan! then kept them when i sold it and they got a run on all my mazdas and a few mates cars too! still have them out the back of my house. Great choice!

Good work on the roadworthy, car looks tough sitting on the 13x7 hotwires & bridgestone eagers even though i am not a huge fan of the rims yours its sitting NZ low and pulls off the looks well

Thanks guys - I got a bracket in the end but thanks for the offer. There is only a couple of types of wheels that I would run on this car over the factory rims / or the hotwires and that would be (gold) 15" simmons b45s, v4s or versas :)

Love the stance with the stock looking wheels.

Heaps of you guys are running them 8)

Hey mate - no you can't get them new anymore. Hunting out NOS eagers has become a sport for me.
