JB Weld. Used to ensure no air leaks from the press fit, rather than a method of attachment.

You can see some at the junction between the carb and the flange in the second photo.
It will take a press to get the flange fitted to the carb.



Those are made by Craig Matteson

That's pretty neat. I hope that's a little guy who does well in a niche market.

You would think the description of this as a "press fit" is really more about alignment

than amount of force, I wouldn't think a carburetor body would take much crushing.

a threaded rod, through the carb or 3 on the perimeter and 2 flat stiff sheets anything,

even lexan or plywood would seem capable of drawing the carb down square.


Looks like it is a little guy, check out this intriguing 2nd product, nothing is new I guess,

but I never saw this before.. He's putting down force on the heads,

so the engine is under stress to dampen vibrations

Course there is already load from the head and base bolts torque but still,

this could really make you think of damping options.

I think you're right. You'd think that Craig's flange would appear in the large distribution channels, but I have'nt seen them there. But when you do a search for "CV carb flange", a photo of Craig's flange always shows up.


About the amount of force needed to install those, more than what can be done by hand, but a hydraulic press isn't required. A friend installed one about a week ago and used a bench vice.

Drag Specialities website doesn't offer international shipping. I have mailed them to find out if they want to do this. I ordered the Stage 1 kit from CV Performance.

I think this is gonna be third time lucky :-)

Thanks for the steer.

We have had good results with the use of the S&S spigot-mounted intake manifolds when using either CV's, or Mikuni's.

Throw me a curve ball why doncha

I think I have a stock manifold, then a 1" S&S extension to get the torque curve down a bit, then a Super E with the jetting all furked up (I can fix that), then a regular S&S air filter, then a regular S&S air filter cover which I cut holes into all the way round which would would let more air in so it would run lean.

So I think I need to go maybe 1 or 2 up on stock on the Intermediate and leave the Main stock.

Either that or chuck the whole fukken thing and use the CV.

Jeez

Thanks for your help which is much appreciated.

Pete
