    Default VW inlet manifold for Sierra donks?

    I reckon these would be pretty close!

    Or at least it wouldn't take a great deal to weld them to a plate to suite.

    If you are without the facebook images attached below; They are a VW inlet manifold with a pair of 40mm dcoe's





    Has anyone tried a VW inlet manifold before?

    Aren't they IDF down draft carbs? Not side draft DCOE's.

    You could always tip the engine on its right side. Then carbs would be right way up. Might be a problem with the oil though.

    I'm now imaging a 45degree angle with the carbs sticking out of the bonnet. Hehehe.

    Actually thinking toward the 504 now. How much slant is to much? Did they have fancy baffles in the sump?

    @Bowie:They could be made to work I guess but unless you allready have a set on the shelf I dont see the point. There is R12/twin DCOE manifolds to be bough in Spain

    Cheap DCOE copies from China. My IDF copy from China delivered for $200. But could have been even cheaper if I had trusted China post. But I elected to use a known carrier. DHL I think. All the Weber jets etc fit.

    Do either of theese look right for R12 ts?

    Dutch company Chadil used to have a few renault manifolds but I suspect they are out of buisness. There is a small croatian company called Stole’s Race Shop that seem to have a close relationship with a foundry. My brother asked them about a Mercedes manifold, badicly a custom job and he got a reasonable offer a few days later.

    The ....35/565 8Ts looks the business. Very similar to now very rare Alconi manifold from ZA.

    If the R8TS(fasa) and R12TS share the same engine it should be quite easy. I see pictures of R8TSes with double webere posted on the Team R8 facebook group frequently.

    There's no need to modify anything if you could drive like this..

    I liked the covers for the petrol pump hole in the block when you have converted to an electric petrol pump.

    That cover is nice. R5 gt turbo and probably a few other of the latest sierra powered renaults used those. I have one in the parts bin. Might try to cast some copies of it.

    Not sure if that Fran guy do the inlet casting himself or have a close coloberation with a foundry. From his ad I get the impression he can deliver inlets for most of the sierra engines.

    edit: I found some of his posts on facebook and his supplier is a company called Autozahar SEAT. They have the website autozahar.com(not very good) and a facebook profile(lots of pictures)

    I here I was happy that 59 Floride had solved the problem @#$%^&er. Have to try again GR.

    Incidently the 4 CV 1063 rally cars used a 40 mm Weber dual throat IDF crossways feeding all 4 cylinders (904cc's) for international rallies because that way they do not suffer with fuel bowl surge on very tight alpine corners. (Photo again please John.)

    Mr Sunroof, Because the car ended up on its roof I humbly suggest it had an over-confident Finnish driver.

    Right Arto..?

    No such thing as over confident Finnish drivers. Finn would have been sideways, not on two wheels
