    Default Weber and manifold + extractors

    Anybody got a manifold and carby plus extractors for a 1974 TA22 with a standard 2T motor? I'm in Tasmania but don't mind paying for postage/courier.
    Edit: I'm looking for a downdraft carburettor and extractors for the 2T.

    Can't help with the manifold but there is one on ebay at the moment, they are wanting around $200. When they come up locally they are generally cheaper than that.

    I have a pair of professionally rebuilt/reconditioned Dellorto's DHLA 40 that have jets for a 2T-G (that's what I asked for anyway). My original plan was to keep them as back-ups for the Solex's currently on the engine. They have not been used since I got them and have remained in their box in dry conditions. If they are of interest to you let me know. I am on the NW coast of Tas

    Could you please clarify whether you want a standard 2T intake manifold and Weber 32/36 two barrel or twin sidedraught carbies and sidedraught manifold as steveh has mentioned?

    To be brutally honest, ToyTA22, I'm a novice so pretty well ignorant as to the pros and cons of either. I'm happy to take any advice you can offer; the one Steve has won't go straight on the existing 2T manifold and needs a different manifold? Is that what you're saying?
    I suppose I'm looking for best bang for buck.

    The standard downdraft twin barrel manifold can be fitted with an adaptor to take a 32/26dgv weber, same as used on Mk2 Ford Escorts 2 litre engine. They are easy to get rebuild kits and jets for them. The manifold you would need to buy separate to suit twin sidedraft Webers or Dellortos, just google 40DCOE Webers or 40DHLA Dellortos. The cost factor is much higher for twin sidedraft setup, which you only need if other modifications are done such as cam and head porting. The 2TG manifold won't fit a 2T pushrod type head without an adaptor plate which increases cost if you can't make one yourself.

    In that case I'd opt for the Weber 32/26 with the adaptor. Thanks for that comrade, I've edited my request accordingly.

    ToyTA22 - thanks for picking me up on the adaptor plate, I'd blindly forged ahead and forgot about that (and also made an assumption with going twin carbs).

    Greg - ToyTA22's advice also covers your PM to me.

    I made a typo, should read 32/36 DGV Weber. Sorry didn't check before posting

    No problem Steve. I wanted to clarify because I have two 2TG manifolds in my shed, one ported one standard which I won't be using.
