Cool old carbs. I think Mikuni parts fit but you better make sure....

went on ebay, there's a few places that have parts for these carbs. they need to be cleaned and gone through,every thing is there so it a good starting point again.

Give me a call, FutoFab now sells Mikuni parts (although the Solex ADDHE is a totally different beast).

Last fall we purchased the business assets of Wolf Creek Racing after the passing of its owner, Todd Walrich.

How are you doing Mike?
Your last post left us hanging and a bit worried concerning your foot.

I have also used the 68 cover over the later column with minor modifications,bit does look nice as they are slim.

Take care,

Nothing like a few extra cubic inches to make things better. I'm sure the bigger bore and SR guys are laughing about this. And to be honest, on paper, the torque numbers from an L16 to an L20B seem small. But from a driving point of view it makes such a big difference in a 510.

Now lets talk about a mild cam and a tuned carb, and it'll be a great runner!

Man, that thing looks awesome in the photos above. You've had a vision with you car for years and taken you time, but it really looks great!
