Help with DCOE manifolds/linkage

inlet-manifolds.jpg

Hi, I have the type of manifolds that are in the picture (pic is from the netherlands turbo site) with the vertical shaft on the #3 tube. Mine has a part that swivels on the shaft with two horizontal arms separated by about 100 degrees. Each horizonal arm has a ball-type linkage thing on the end. I was wondering how to hook up the linkage with this thing to make it work with a set of DCOEs. Is there an easy way to adapt the stock 71 carb linkage to make it work with this? Does anyone have any clear pictures of this setup? Thanks,

Eddy

Yeah, I was thinking of going cable style anyway...but it just seems weird the way that pivot is set up, I don't understand how it would work with the stock setup.

Hey Eddy, They look like the same manifolds that I have. TI manifolds. I'm not too sure if your trying to use the stock setup, but what i'm using is Ireland Engineering "pull down" cable setup. It made it sooo much easier than messing with rods, and linkages. I'm just suggesting somthing that has worked really well for me. Check it out, or give them a call. Nice people to deal with. ...Kevin

That setup is working for me too. My manifolds look identical to the ones in that pic, with the vertical post on #3 and little return spring perch(es). The Ireland center-pull system works pretty well so far.

    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
