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



and the manifolds

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


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

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.

Next I started on the fuel lines. I chose 8mm internal diameter stainless braided marine quality fuel line.

Then using P clips I secured the fuel line


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

Then using a 1mm cutting disc on an angle grinder simply cut through leaving a nice unfrayed edge

Pipe routed to Tee piece


Next the oil breather pipe was connected to the top of the o/s air filter cover

and then fitted to carb


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



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


And into the bracket on the off side


I put a tee piece behind it and shortened the original pipe


Then teed it into the oil breather pipe


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
