It had to come out again to fit the bit of tin that was hiding so I did the pulley and gave the alternator a wipe over

The new carbs
I chose DRLA 40's
Bay Resto - Page 3 5F94578B-87DB-4B72-BB6D-4E34E52C6887-4589-000001ED4C8B6D4C_zpsa09e7af6

and the manifolds
Bay Resto - Page 3 FD0F3EB6-513F-4286-9B9A-552A7DD895EC-162-00000005FE96BB1B_zpsffdb7d25
First of all there are no vacuum ports for the servo
So some suitable fixings are required. I bought barbed threaded hose connectors but found them to be a bit long as I wanted to use the existing pipework. So I went to the local hose supplier and got these
Bay Resto - Page 3 D82DF944-DF33-47ED-AA2D-8A6182501511-162-0000000537081663_zps22cde84a

They also supplied the sealing washers that will withstand any heat.
Next I trial fitted the manifolds to see where the rubber elbows would sit, marked the manifolds and centre punched where to drill

then drilled a pilot hole and opened it out to 11mm and tapped the m12 thread for the fixing

All swarf cleaned out and carb fitted so you can see how it is

Next the rubber elbow was fitted
Bay Resto - Page 3 F817E3C1-0181-49BB-9BC0-3408C282F5FC-162-00000007D6F26704_zps6915eadc
I chose to use hose clips to make sure the elbows cant ever come off.
Manifolds were then fitted to engine. I used 12mm headed nuts as 13mm won't go on.

Repeat for the other side.
Bay Resto - Page 3 B2E16C6D-FE89-4ACB-8F1E-3829505B4FC5-162-000000080CA5421D_zps44409528
Next I started on the fuel lines. I chose 8mm internal diameter stainless braided marine quality fuel line.
Bay Resto - Page 3 6AB8A794-3A2A-4A55-8D11-D8D9CB0ABE1E-162-0000000892E208FE_zpse83365fc
Then using P clips I secured the fuel line
Bay Resto - Page 3 7DF5B88A-9A84-40D8-8611-673E49A16BC8-162-00000008C6C34F60_zpsfc49e2c7

The fuel line needed to be cut to the required length once i was happy with the routing. Wrap the hose with tape where you need to cut
Bay Resto - Page 3 147BEAA2-D1EA-427F-9C6E-96BC40BD4D19-1661-000000C186B18626_zpsb62f9037
Then using a 1mm cutting disc on an angle grinder simply cut through leaving a nice unfrayed edge
Bay Resto - Page 3 02954A6F-98FD-46DA-8032-625C5110988C-1661-000000C1BD7B42BB_zps5ad6d28f
Pipe routed to Tee piece
Bay Resto - Page 3 E00665D6-FCB7-4771-B3B9-1D9F67172BD8-1661-000000C1E90713BF_zpsee9557f8

Next the oil breather pipe was connected to the top of the o/s air filter cover
Bay Resto - Page 3 3426CC93-12B2-40AC-9B31-A75AB0279B72-1661-000000C11B697954_zps625a0100
and then fitted to carb
Bay Resto - Page 3 421CEF02-8FFB-4E59-96BE-B2666A86310B-1661-000000C15AB8B2C8_zps34ff5577

Next the linkage was fitted, quite simple really but I did have to use a thread cleaner for the grub screws.
I connected the linkage and have left the adjusters at the longest setting so they can be adjusted at the end of the install
Bay Resto - Page 3 6293704D-456B-4BEF-AB03-A849024DABF6-1661-000000C21CAA2E9A_zps935cc723

Just got the tank breathers to connect and then the adjustments

Watch out for that fuel line, it looks pretty but you can'ty see if the pipe is leaking or breaking down behind the braiding.

Very tidy install - like scoops says make sure you swap the fuel line in a few years.

Took it out for a run tonight, it was great!!!
The carbs still need a bit of tweek as there is the occasional backfire but it goes really well.

only one small issue, the alternator has decided to pack up Sad

I finished off the tank breathers today, extending the metal pipe from the near side right across the engine bay
Bay Resto - Page 3 663FC918-ED2B-4BAC-8469-4E68910620E7-9694-000004E2DB95E362_zps5226d50b

And into the bracket on the off side

Bay Resto - Page 3 2C5B2607-618F-4A5A-8CF3-12FE61DE79DB-9694-000004E35E795795_zpsd0d505d8
I put a tee piece behind it and shortened the original pipe
Bay Resto - Page 3 10389AB9-A807-4E37-BFF2-9ED2EF69058D-9694-000004E3911193E2_zpse5147cff

Then teed it into the oil breather pipe

Bay Resto - Page 3 E3FBDEC1-1058-45E4-9F0B-3890E386B461-9694-000004E3C212195B_zps7d7fd0c8
Here you can see how I have left it for now, I have run out of hose clips and I am going to secure the pipes in place
