2TB-2TBR Air Filter Housing from the Netherlands
Took the Lid and cleaned it up and placed it with the NOS Bottom from Spain
Painted the Lid with 2000 degree black paint, but it had a flat finish!
Repainted the Lid with a gloss black
The reason I'm showing you the bare manifold is to bring awareness to an expensive trick from a seller in Greece, His posting of his set of Carburetors for sale did not include a photo that was clear enough for the purchaser to realize that the elbow from the intake manifold to the water bypass had been removed and not included in the sale. One can be sourced.
Had to clean the parts from the set from down Under. The ad stated as is, but I was aware that the throttle plates would possibly be frozen as many of the remaining carburetor had possibly been stored with fluids still inside or had collected enough water or moisture which would rust the base assembly shut.
I will take them somewhere and eventually get them hot tanked or acid dipped once I figure out where stuff is located here in the near Atlanta area.
So I fitted this manifold with a set of spare carburetors until I can get the OEM base assemblies rebuilt and operating without resistance. This is just a mock-up for now. To use these would require a bit of effort in fabricating a new throttle cable system for these Carburetors.
Bad ankle or not, at least I'm doing something towards this project.
