Ek het die onderste adapter vanaand gaan haal. Het gou gou die gate vir die rubber baseplate se skroewe getap en die gate van de manifold ge-counter sink.

Hi Bennie

Weet jy miskien of die 4Y engines verskillende intake manifolds ophet?
My rede vir die vraag is, ek het vir my 'n adapter van papier gemaak wat op my engine pas en die se gate stem nie met joune ooreen nie. Rede: Ek het nie nodig om my gate te counter sink nie, hulle steek uit. Ek sien op die fpto wat Lindsey geplaas het syne steek ook uit. :roll:

Jong ek weet nie of daar veskillende sizes is nie. Dawie het 'n Brospeed intake manifold en die gate match op met die 38 Webber wat opwas. So daar was nie 'n adapter plate nie, net so 'n klein spacer ek dink seker as heat shield sodat die carb nie sal heat soak van die manifold af nie.

Sit met n Weber, en is hierdie ding dors.

Dankie
I bought the carb from Carburator City. It has to be the original, as per Lyndsey's advice. It was R1050.
My truck has a Brospeed manifold, so I'm not sure the adapter plate could be standardised.
I had a 38 weber on. It was TERRIBLE!!!!

I have the Brospeed manifold as well and it fits perfectly inot the base of the standard nikki carb. :wink:
So unless the standard manifold takes an adapter........

No adapter :!: No adapter :!: No adapter :!:

ek het gedink all die manifolds is maar die selfde, maar dit lyk asof jy reg is. dit kan wees dat die weber verskil van die standaard carb
Benhurl

that plate looks good :) hope you get as much of a saving as what i have

Any one in Cape Town doing these conversions? Making plates etc? I want to do this and get an electro dizzy to make the best fuel cons without going the EFI route. Any help appreciated!

die adaptor word direk aan die manifold vas gemaak en dan die rubber een bo op dit en dan die carb. ek het nie die onderste breather pyp op gesit nie en dit net af ge blok. ek het net die een wat op die donaldson se kant konekt sodat gasse wat van die motor af kom net weer gebrand word en exhaust toe gaan. my petrol kabel het een van die "ball" fittings en het net so aan die golf carb gepas

Hi guys

what fuel consumption was you getting on the 1800 carb? if its good I might get mine done :)
A qualified mech will do it for R1500 Apparently he did it to couple peoples SFA and even got the adapter plates made and etc. R1500 for everything. he tunes the carb, fit the carb and supplies everything. not bad!!!
