  2. Coming in hot with the 12-year bump. I too, am curious if this manifold from my RHD Touring is the same as a ‘tii’ manifold and if anyone confirmed an 02again manifold fitment. I’m building a semi-hot motor and with the lack of decent header options out there trying to figure out what the best approach is. Not trying to melt any steering couplers every other month with the spaghetti banana style. Seems popular on the UK forum. The part number casting on my manifold does not match any of the above listed numbers. It reads (11 62) 1 251 039 Note the hole near the #4 outlet where the pipes turn down. Seems unique? IE shorty’s won’t work. 02again seems ideal.
  3. Yes, but not just English Tii’s. Regular 2002 Tourings apparently included the 140mph speedo as well.
  4. Old post but I’m just adding for future reference. Confirming that my ‘73 RHD Touring came with a 140mph speedometer from factory as Les noted of his. (Note: boy racer bezels not from factory. Heh)
  5. Yep, I've been running well since. But yes, plastic floats can sink too—not just pin-holed brass floats. Check 'em if you're chasing your tail like I was.
  6. Sounds like you solved this, but figured I’d add my experience for anyone else dealing with a dripping carb. My 40 DCOEs were purchased new and were pooling and dripping from both carbs for different reasons for the first couple months of running them. I discovered that the front carb had a slightly twisted Venturi because the set screw on the side of one of the throats was not seated correctly out of the box. That was an easy solve once I noticed what was happening. The rear carb was a bit more frustrating and leaked way worse. I’ll spare you with all of the details and attempts to remedy this including several phone calls with the supplier. It turned out that the rear carb had heavier plastic floats than the front carb. I weighed it with a postal scale and found it to be almost double the weight of the non-leaking carb. It was either saturated with fuel, or just heavier for some other reason. Not sure. But I replaced it and my problem was solved. Just because they are new, doesn’t mean that something can’t be wrong with them.
  7. This is a double post from the event page, but thought I'd post here as well. I've shared some of this years artwork already, but if you're not on instagram, then here ya go. I've mentioned this in the past, but some people have spoken up with interest in a separate run of the posters, in a non-event specific format. Continuing to gauge interest for a modified version of this years as well. Let me know. Looking forward to seeing everyone in May 🏁☀️
  8. Thanks, Brian!
  9. Well, you’re still in the denial phase—we will sit tight and wait another 4 years for this thread to be ressurected with your confession and plan for trim resolution. Kidding. Car looks great. Those grills are doing all the work anyway. Very nice.
  10. Ha, great to see this thread revived from the depths. Although bad decisions, lost opportunities and missed connections don’t technically count. C’mon I wanna see some hood scoops, or some side exit exhaust holes people are now filling—the stuff that comes back to haunt you from your misguided youth!
