If everyone had that opinion, these cars would already be at the crushers.
This topic is for those that want info on the carbs, if you don't want a set, then don't buy them.

I have them on my car because they are period correct, I don't care if webers, EFI or anything else would make it go better.

I think you missed my point Dave, it certainly wasn't having a dig at your car or set up.
What I was trying to say was those carbs in the pic are near buggered and will cost a shitload to make operational again. For about the same cost you could get various brand new set ups, whilst the Efi setup would be modernising side draughts are also period correct

Yes sorry I did misunderstand your point.
My apologies.

A clean up and a pair of carby kits would probably do it? Carb kits sell these days for about $65 each.

The problem I have with the carbs is:
Those carbs are missing the accelerator cable retainer and the ball cup joints and adjusters.
These carbs sets (in complete form) would have to be worth about $200 (give or take depending on condition). If they are missing anything then start dropping the price.

I ended up having to buy 2 sets incomplete sets to complete 1 set. It's an expensive (and perhaps stupid) way of doing it.

Note:
The thermostat housings are not interchangeable with anything else (you'd have to get it custom made). If it is missing, you have a problem.

That is a good reason to get the setup I saw on ebay. It is incomplete, but it does have the thermostat housing, and the rest could be used for parts.

I agree with both of you, to a point. Sidedrafts and the factory twins are both period correct, it would depend on the application as to which setup you went with.
If it was me, I'd use the factory twins if I was going for a "factory performance model" sort of look, and sidedrafts if I was going for a "period modified" look. Of course, that particular theory only applies to a primarily street-driven car, if you were building a car that would see a lot of track work or were chasing a bit more power then the sidedrafts win hands down.
EFI is a different story altogether, I'm not sure where it would fit in in my little theory. Maybe if you were going for a more "modern" look?
Performance doesn't really play a part in that theory, as you'd obviously go EFI turbo if you were after outright power.

I had a set of twin solex's and we just took the manifold into auto one and we found that a 351 ford V8 thermostat housing was the same.

If true, that is the best news I've heard in a long time.
Nice work philip76galant thanks for posting up your find.
I think I might just owe you a beer (substitute drink of choice if beer isn't your thing)?

good day sir..it really interesting reading this thread..i have the same set of carbs on my 4g32 engine..lately i manage to rebuild these carbs..however, after rebuilding it..i have a hard time tuning the carb..i wonder if the pilot jets namely( primary and secondary) as shown in the diagrams needs to be adjusted or they just need to be screwed all in or i have to back it a little.. moreover, i think i am running rich as of now..coz my exhaust smell of unburnt fuel.. should i adjust the idle air mixture screw to make it leaner?

hoping for some info..

thanks alot
