I need to mount my Carb approved Weber to my 2tc manifolt since my kit diddnt come with an adapter, and I cant seem to find one the right size. I can do this in 2 different ways. I can create a spacer out of some 6011 aluminum. I have a stick of .75”x3”x12'. The other way would be using a spare intake I have from a 78 and hogging out the inside where the carb normally bolts to, and inserting a square (that bolts to carb) then welding. Well look at my ridiculous paint diagram and pics.

The hard way. Dont Laugh!:

Which way would you do it? And why?

How about a smash-up of the two? Bore out the mani, make a spacer to fit the weber between the stock bolts, mount the weber to the spacer, mount the spacer on the mani. Looks like there is enough room for the weber to fit between the studs on the manifold. Might be the best solution, you certainly wouldn't have to bore out the weber and chance messing it up. Also, less chance for vaccum leaks. Plus, TIG welding can get expensive, unless you can do it yourself.

Interesting idea. I would like to keep my stock manifold untouched if I go with the spacer. I do have the 78 spare though. I have the correct tools, so damaging the carb when relocating mounting holes wont be an issue. As for paying for welding, just look at the shop behind the manifold. Ill be doing the work :wink: thanks for the input. :D
