    Spending most the last few weeks (when i get the chance) replacing floor, bracing chassis and fabbing new gearshift mechanism.
    I know there are 40mm weber manifolds for this engine, but just wondering if there are 45mm manifolds? I ask this as i could possibly adapt the 1 3/4" SU carbs to that instead of trying to fix manifold that i have, which will never be a great result , though better than what i have now.

    I will have a 40 DCOE Weber (Italian & recently rebuilt) and associated manifold from the V85 engine in my A110 available for sale in the next 4 weeks or so if you're interested....would bolt straight onto your engine.

    That attached carb looks likes a 38/38 DGV?

    That should go alright, As for calculating jet size... You have some reading (because I'm not sure). Perhaps as a starting point.

    what do I  have and what can I  use?-20180911_123533.jpgHaving intermittent ignition probs at the moment making tuning impossible. Got a spare old coil will try later. Also will need a low pressure fuel reg as electric fuel pump runs at 7psi and max seems should be 3 if i recall.
    Bowie, thanks for link. I chipped away the epoxy on carb body and found the carby to be a 34 DMS. It is progressive and not synchronous and is apparently an upgrade for some fiat spiders. Running very rich in my beastie though.
    I bought some JB Weld to build up the SU manifold porting (thanks US drag tuners for that tip)and will try to shape it more favourably for entry to head ports.

    Well it wasn't the coil. Looks like the aftermarket electronic ignition module is either playing up or goneski. Would go the cheapest way possible and put points back in but unfortunately the points cam was removed to fit magnetic trigger.

    Ah, well surely someone has a dizzy floating around you can just test with?

    If not, I'll have a dizzy you can borrow in a week or so.

    Bit of a nightmare fixing ignition issues. Turns out was electronic ignition module, and side sparking spark plus. Running rich but pretty good now. Just need to strengthen harness mounts and ready to go. And missed on another supercharger.

    I think I might have a bog stock R12GL dizzy somewhere if Bowie didn't take it. Let me know and I'll have a look. I'm in WA.

    You did send me a dizzy when you looked after me with those manifolds and zee Weber (sorry Saje).

    But if you still are having any drams, I'm about to replace my dizzy with an ecu, you could have an extended loan of the dizzy if you needed
