Installed Weber 38 Pictures (Cannon Manifold)?


Recommended Posts

Just seeing if anybody has some easily-accessible pictures of an installed Weber 38.  I found some older topics with info, but the majority of the pictures are dead or missing.  I'm in the process of installing my new 38 with Cannon manifold and I'm trying to remember where stuff routes to and from.  I previously had dual 40 dcoes with the coolant hoses bypassed, and since I don't have the bottom piece for routing the coolant to the cannon manifold, I'm going to stick with that for now. That eliminates the angled upward facing hole at the middle of the manifold. Then I have the brake booster hose hole with the needed fitting, so that is taken care of. That leaves me with a small threaded hole on the manifold that basically faces the fuse box which I'm not too sure about, as well as a vacuum fitting on the carb itself, which I'm also not sure if I need to connect anything to. Any pictures or help would be great. Thanks.

The Canon 2bbl manifold I have uses the early 1bbl manifold bottom cover, if that helps.


The vacuum advance should attach to the fitting that comes out of the carb at the level of the throttle plates.


The vacuum ports on the manifold are usually plugged

    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
