This is called putting a plan into motion…and being easily influenced by my friends.
I’ve decided I’m definitely heading into twin carb realm without going overboard on my engine. I’ve bought a set of 32mm Type 3 carbs off The Samba for $75 that I’m going to install on my engine. Why these? Well, 32mm is a mild step up without going for full-on Webers or Kadrons and these still have a choke element so I don’t have to sit there for five minutes with my foot on the accelerator every morning warming them up.
And then another friend showed me this guy’s motor (see above) and I just about wet myself! That’s sexy as! Stock air cleaners on the exact same carbs I’ll be running. Not only that, but the hard metal lines piped from the fuel pump cleanly around the shroud and to the carbs?! It’s genius and tooootallly what I want to do!
So I found so air cleaners just like these on The Samba as well and snapped them up. I just need the linkage now and have everything arrive!
