RacerX (awesome nod to speed racer), JesseC, BananaHamuck, Banzai510, Loungin112 and DatsunMike thanks for the heads up on all this awesome info. I'm blown away by the support. Paradime wow, it didn't even cross my mind that you could possibly have bike carbs as an option. Speechless.
Definitely will consider this as an option.
And of course DatsunMike would have a setup like this already. Top notch.
So the manifold is the key here. If the seller doesn't have the manifold or has one that was for an L16, would it fit on the L20b? I know the seems like a stupid question, but this is my first 510 and carb'd car. And I've read some posts where loads of parts from the L series motors are interchangeable. I see Weber 32/34 mentioned a couple of times, but I'm assuming that's for down draft setup?
If the seller does not have the manifold, would it be hard to track one down?? Using BananaHamuck's ruler method would be a safe move regardless?
DatsunMike - the adapter you mentioned, would that be compatible with these carbs? Is it expensive? And the manifold you fabricated, how did you know what length to make them? Did that play a factor? Your manifold looks longer than those posted by Paradime. Also, would you recommend bike carbs as a cheaper solution? Or is fabricating a manifold offset the savings one would make with purchasing carbs?
RacerX - the ones this seller has are side draft (I'm pretty sure you knew that already) and I think I want to go with that look, well because I like it better than the down draft setup. Lol is there a higher level of maintenance for side draft carbs over down draft?
Sorry for the questions.
Also, anyone from the Canadian Ontario region, specifically Toronto, know of a place that could:
- shorten a drive shaft
- install a 5spd tranny
I know the last question is off topic, but I thought I'd ask since you guys were helpful with my initial post.
Thanks again for your help guys.
