Does anybody have the alloy manifold/spacer that sits between the carb and the head for a 66 B44 please?

Great, how do I go about ordering one from you?
I will probably need the two studs as well, do you have them?

Nambo,

You can order off my website. Pick International First Class as your shipping method as Priority Mail for light weight shipments is way more expensive. Use the part numbers to search out the items. I have the special carb stud with the collar. Not sure if I have the regular straight one though. It is easy enough to make from a longer stud. If I don't have one in stock I can always make one for you. You can also more efficiently communicate with me on my regular email: peter@bsaunitsingles.com

Pete,

Maybe too late now but I've got a few used ones of various thickness and bore sizes. If you let me know the size you require I'll will see what I've got. If I've one that's thicker or the holes too small I can machine it to the right size for you.

Keith.

Keith,

These intake manifolds also have a taper. One side is thicker than the other. To help assemble correctly BSA then bored out one stud hole larger than the other and used a corresponding stud with a sort of shoulder on it so the manifold could only be put on in one orientation. A thicker manifold cold be cut back and angled and also bored to correctly fit the carb. Not just a bolt on affair. Nothing that a machinist couldn't easily do.

In view of the fact that the UK seems to want to discourage trade with the USA, I have bought a £1500 Gibson Les Paul from Japan, and Customs here didn't even look at it, yet if I but a tuppenny washer from the States, Customs here at least demand a handling fee, so I will take up your offer Keith as you are in the UK, sorry Peter Quick.

My carb is a 932 Concentric MK1
Inlet track, courtesy of Ed V, is 31 mm
Thickness?, the minimum required so the carb doesn't touch the rockerbox and I can get the tappet inspection cover off, I have this engine in an oil in frame so there isnt a lot of room between the carb and the frame.

My address Keith is xxxxxx@xxxxxxx.net [Edit by MM: if you put you e-mail address in posts, you are likely to increase the spam and junk mail in your in-box, your e-mail address is available to other forum members by pressing the envelope symbol on the right--->] if you can drop me a line.

Cheers
Pete
