Found this kit today at a local swapmeet. It's for a 36hp
Not that often you find a complete unit with air cleaners.

Thanks, those stickers really make that set something special.
They also makes me wonder if my recessed aircleaners came with foam type filters... they came with the mesh inserts like yours, i just assumed they were a later upgrade.

My Manaro motors kit

Looks like itís been cut and extended with a 60mm long rubber hose bridging the gap maybe to fit a 40hp motor.

Shown fitted to a 36hp motor I have on the bench.

Itís got the flat style filters, not sure of the year this kit was made.

I really love this kit as itís made in Melbourne (where I live) of the time and uses made in Birmingham ( my birth place) S U carburettors, for vintage air cooled VWís

Hey mate, do you plan on restoring your kit? Iíve got one set that I think is for a 40hp motor and another manifold I think is for a 36hp. I intend to restore at least one of them and fit to a rebuilt 36hp for my 54 Beetle. Would love to see one completed!

Same here I have few queries regarding the original throttle linkage setup which must not of been to great as most kits from the pictures Iíve seen have been modified in some way.

I have managed to crack out the brazing of the two halves of the balance tube back into one piece today I also removed and repaired the balance tube vacuum take off someone had added probably around the same time they cut the balance tube in order to fit to a 40hp engine.
