For the last couple of years, we have been working on creating a complete, bolt-on, sidedraft carburetor linkage system for the 2002. Because, other than jetting, the linkage system is usually the most troublesome aspect of installing and tuning sidedraft carburetors on the 2002. Certainly there are generic, incomplete, sidedraft linkage kits out there. But they usually require manifold/throttle lever mods, bracket fabrication, cable routing, etc. and, in a lot of cases, are just plain ugly!
The three prime requirements for our system design were that it would include all the linkage parts needed for the sidedraft conversion, that it would work with all intake manifold and carburetor combinations and that it would be based on the original BMW 2002ti linkage system. After years of development, thousands of miles of testing on 2002’s around the globe, and much hair pulling, I believe we have created the Ultimate BMW 2002 Sidedraft Linkage System!
We call it “Ultimate” because:
· It is designed uniquely for the BMW 2002’s Only
· It includes all the linkage parts necessary for installing sidedrafts on 2002’s Only
· It works with all combinations of sidedraft carburetors (Weber, Solex, and others in development) and intake manifolds (OEM, IE, Korman, Cannon, …)
· The form, fit, and finish are like the original 2002ti linkage system
· It puts the synchronization procedure on the carbs where it belongs, not on the linkage
· The throttle lever and balance lever are designed specifically for each carburetor version
· Once installed, it is virtually maintenance and adjustment free
· It comes with actual installation instructions and tips for the BMW 2002s Only
We are proud to make the initial announcement of the availability of this system on BMW2002FAQ. And we will soon be launching an e-commerce website called—www.2002sOnly.com with all of our products for the BMW 2002s Only. In the meantime, here are some photos and a video brochure on the Ultimate BMW 2002 Sidedraft Linkage System.
We have these in stock, ready to ship. The price for the complete system is $265 plus shipping (we do ship internationally). For orders or inquiries, please use my direct email, halboyles at 2002sonly.com.
