I think they are throttle position sensors. I have seen a couple of different set-ups on the R33

Seriously, looks tasty

Brooksie, for some reason Isaac wanted me to recommend this link to you, Skyline Owners Forum > General Skyline Torque > General non-Skyline banter > Continuing the Saga of Squadron Leader & Pilot. Search button should help you find it.
Sorry for mild Hijack, (Ive done worse).

getting the plenum off is a pain in the a$$ - more so when you have a strut brace on like me that you don't remove first.

good job - what did you do with the timing belt cover - chrome it?

To polish the Plemum, Cam Covers and Turbo pipes I used wet and dry to start then a couple of polishing wheels I got from a local suppliers.
It has taken a couple of months on and off (a couple of hours here and there) to get everything to this stage.
I have had most of the parts off a couple of time as the salt on the roads plays havoc; I have now applied a thin coat of lacquer to keep everything in good order.
There are quite a few Chromed parts as well.
It took an afternoon of hard graft and sore knuckles to get the plenum of and on.
I must say a big thank you :cheers: to Mr Bell for loaning me a second Plenum without this I could never have done it.

Simon

Still More to be done I will keep you posted!!!!!!!!!
