Single side draft Weber

Diego Garcia

HAHAHAH this project was the biggest aspect of building this car and it was fun because I didn't think I would actually attempt this because I hadn't given the idea too much thought. But one day at #neueklasseandkaffee I told a buddy of mine that I wanted to do this weird single side draft set up but the manifolds were back ordered and sure enough he pointed me in the right direction to my now good friend named Eric which just happened to have a lynx manifold sitting in his 02 storage unit!! so that same day he took me up and I ended up buying it off of him.Now this ended up being a slightly larger project than I had anticipated and ended up taking me three months to get to the point where I could just get in the car and go anywhere!!

Hi Diego. I have the same set up. Got it used but I don't think it actually was ever used. Worked great right out of the box. No paperwork came with it regarding choke or jetting sizes. I have no clue and I'm hesitant to take it apart it runs so well. Linkage was creative to put together and could use some improvement. Definitely adds some punch compared to the old 32/36. Gas consumption is not improved but I don't care. Enjoy!

Same here! I ended up finding a weber 40 from a guy I know so I rebuilt it with the correct jetting sizes and chokes and the car runs perfect! such a huge difference from the 32/36. really helps in the twists and on the freeway! glad to hear yours worked out too!

I've often wondered why this set up is not popular. Seems way better than a down draft set up. I'm thinking the unequal lengths on the plenum is considered ineffieceint? Seems you guys have great results - I want one!

That one is actually engineered to be as equal length as possible, and the opposing cylinders attached to the respective throat of the carb.

I have the same setup on my car.  I just converted to top crossbar linkage for throttle control, but before that I used the top mount holes on the Lynx manifold for my throttle return spring.  The holes are 3/8" with a 16 pitch, just need to bend a piece of steel stock from home depot in to an "L" shape, drill a couple of holes and get 2 short 3/8"-16 bolts.  I won't flex as much as your current setup.  You can see the bolts holding the steel stock, but my return spring was on the opposite side for my cable setup.
