a Golf Carburetor in a Hilux - By Bennie Hurter (aka
adapter plate I had cut to fit beneath the Golf base adapter. It
is 20mm thick
With the adapter
(rubber foot fitted on top of it.)
I had to make
my own gasket as it is non standard size.
in Lindsay's thread that my rubber foot thingie could not fit between
the mounting bolts that turn into the manifold while his could.
I made this one with countersink holes and fitted caps screws to
get the fitment right.
when I looked at the manifold I figured out why.
See the original
holes welded shut and new holes made where the Webber fitted. So
this manifold is not standard any more. So if Dawie shipped an adapter
bracket from PE it would not have worked in anycase.

The holes were
not threaded deep enough for the 40mm cap screws to turn in all
the way so I had to tap them deeper.
The adapter properly secured

The Webber had
a choke cable already, that fitted nicely onto the new carb, but
the accelerator cable is too short(I sommer extended it with a piece
of wire temporally, but I will take it in to have a decent cable
made up next week.
As soon as Dawie
gets his new Electronic Dizzy, I will rewire that and wire up the
new carb's Electronic Idle valve properly as I sommer wired it with
temporally wires for now. I also will need to have a bush turned
to help fit the rubber from the air cleaner a but tighter onto the
pipe of the air intake adapter as it is bit loose now. The I also
need some sort of reduction nipple for the breather pipe going to
the tappet cover as the hole sizes does not match up, but that I
will sort next week. She started fairly easy and idle nicely at
700RPM, but I haven't driven her yet.
