    phew..i am out of breath!


    With other work like a hotter cam etc of course you'll get an improvement, not only in performance but also in the speed that the fuel guage returns to empty! Sounds good though.

    To me this sounds like a question even though there was no question mark, so i answered it with a yes.

    In regards to the coolant hoses, i have a weber 45dcoe and a lynx manifold in front of me and there are no attachments for cooling hoses. So you would need to join the inlet and outlet hoses from the original carby together to bypass it.

    Linkages should not be too hard as dont some R12's have the accel cable bracketed to the rocker cover? If so the cable should pull in the right direction to rig up the weber.
