Not to be overly nerdy but those are actually Weber 36's and the guy is having a hell of a time getting them tuned in (some are saying the little 36's are still too big for his combo).

And then there is this. You need a lot of 36'er to keep up with 48's!!!

Yeah, that's why I had the smileys. I wouldn't attempt that combo.

Forget what I said about that split with those carbs. It's a different car, I got my shit mixed up!

Today I was thinking I could use one of those Triple J hoodies. JB, you got any??

I still wouldn't want to put that much effort into a 36'er. Looks cool, but....

Hell I think this is a sweet idea! 100% for it =D> Has to be IDAs tho :-$ I can build you a pinner set of IDAs, custom throttle shafts, use factory solex butterfly's 28-32mm, bush the bores down, choke em way down with little venturis, idle jets for mains.....just mimic the sizes in the WW carbs \:D/ IDAs are the worlds most tuneable carb, I love em!

Let's do this Pete! Screw trying to go fast, leave it simple, go for looks....this would be rad! =D>

No, just the usual Saturday C&C. Friend of mine went to Run to the Sun on Friday...said it was nuts, probably 2000+ cars.

Awe yeah! Vintage speed. Those 36 Dells must have smaller venturis? Def a better setup than the original type okrasa/solex carbs. Dual single barrel carbs always seem to have a weird reversion/valve overlap in the lower rpms.

Ida's would be cool too. Josh, you thinking you could make smaller throttle plates to work with smaller venturis? I mean, if you crack a 48mm butterfly on a 20mm Venturi, it's going to full throttle airflow when the throttle plates are less than 1/4 of the way open.

Also, on ghia you need to be mindful of the manifold/carb height, as the deck lid hinge springs sometimes interfere.

Yes would have to bush the entire thing down to the size of a big gulp straw Smile
Turn some slugs, push em in, re drill for shafts, machine custom shafts for mini butterfly's, re drill progression holes, pinner venturies and jets and big ol pro-stack velocities! Have to be IDAs tho pete....no idfs [-X
Pete has been messageing me about clearances....doesn't really matter, can place carbs wherever need to be with custom manifolds.....twist it all with some badass JJJ's centre pull linkage =D> Would be one hell of an undertaking but hot damn would it ever make some people scratch their nuts! Haha
