[Mgs] OT - Webers
Hello Friends,

The Weber rebuilds are completed and
reinstalled on my Ferrari V8 engine.  In this implementation, the 40DCNF
velocity stacks mount in the airbox.  That is, the airbox is between the carbs
and the trumpets.  But of course, one can't tune the carbs with that honkin'
big airbox blocking access, so the tuning is done without the box in place,
THEN  its installed afterward.  In the picture at the end of the link, the
trumpets are only sitting in place as I haven't yet added the retaining nuts -
but you can see the REALLY nice, clean, happy Webers.

The choke linkage is only
inter-connected on the front two carbs.  The rear choke linkage is left off to
improve access to one of the linkage ends.  There are screw-in retainers at
the end of each link.  One retainer broke into upon removal, so I am awaiting
a replacement.  I'll visit my local exotic repair shop tomorrow and forage
through their 'junk box'.
