I'm watching that, are you going to bid on it as there is no use us both pushing the price up.

Doubt itll go cheap tho!


Is it a straight bolt on. Wouldn't mind a bit more power as mine is gonna be turned into a track car!

I doubt I will actually bid on it.

I know you can fit the 38dgas as macaroni has but i'm not sure what carb is actually in that auction?


I'd prefer twin carbs, some maestro ones went for 200+ a week or so ago.
Do they bolt straight on or do you need to modify the manifold?

Ha, I'm watching that too. It isn't a DGAS, maybe a 32/36 DGAV?

the mg maestro manifold needs the bolt holes drilled out and longer bolts put into the head on the top, the ports line up ok but do need a little work

but for over 200 its not worth it a proper manifold will cost around 160 and carbs arnt that dear at the moment with everyone going bike carbs
