Intake Manifold

Recommended Posts

So I am studying this site thoroughly. My question is will the Weber 32/36 EC bolt up to the factory Intake Manifold with no or little modification, or do I need to get the after market manifold from IE. What are the advantages to having the Cannon Manifold over having the factory manifold? Also what are all of the modifications that need to be made to make the Weber switch. Thanks for all the info you all are posting on the forum. I am deployed overseas right now and when I get home I plan on doing a ground up restoration on my 72 2002 that I was given by my grandfather.

Assuming that you have the factory 2 barrel manifold it will bolt right up. Don't worry about 'hogging' or opening out the ports to match the carb. You will not notice the difference and hogging the whole thing is bad for intake charge speed.

You should be able to use the same rod accelerator linkage and, depending upon the type of choke the Weber comes with this can eitherbe set up like the Solex water cchoke, wired to a switched 12v if electric.

Well I am going to go with the electric choke. It just seems like less to deal with. The motor has been rebuilt back to stock specks. What would be the proper jetting for this carburator? This car has never ran as well as i thought it should even after the engine rebuild and it has alwyas seemed to be issues with the carb. Evert time we has issues like this with Triumphs the Weber swap was the first and only solution. Thanks for your input.


Cheers Chris

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
