Does anyone have a Weber inlet manifold for a Sprint?

Preferably with the bosses for the injectors but not the end of the world if it doesn't.

Thanks
James

The throttle bodies accept the injectors, James.

I replied on the Facebook ad, but just to repeat
Mangolesti make these manifolds (they did a batch in August last year), I know because I bought one from
Rally Design in Kent.


As an aside, I went for Omex throttle bodies because Omex sell matched fuel rails.
(Whilst it is easy to buy blank fuel rail it is not so easy to get it drilled....
Ross Machine sell a drill bit but by the time you have paid the delivery, duty etc it is the thick end of £200.
Omex also sell a matched throttle linkage kit.....

Ian

When you say it's hard to drill the fuel rail, is it because it's a hard material ?

Thanks Ian, I know they do them but I wanted one with the injector bodies on. I'm not going for throttle bodies.... yet! I'm doing something else! :wink:

I did wonder if that was so, James.

Having spent a lot of time considering different options,
I went for the throttle bodies because this method definitely does work.
Without a lot of trial and error or luck, getting the plenum the optimum shape and size is a challenge?


As an aside, I do have a new Ford 60mm throttle body, which has a flat mounting flange
and a simple connection for a throttle cable. I also have a new gasket for it.
Finally I have four new Bosch injectors 0 280 155 884 which I think are Rover K series 1800?
£75 including postage is the price if you are interested.



thanks,

Ian.

James I bought a new Mangoletsi inlet a year or so ago and it doesn't have any provision for injector bosses. Not sure if I will be using it or not at the moment.
