Great build, Dong! How did you weld the manifolds?

Can I use a MIG welder and wire or is it aluminum brazing or some such?

Also, where on the manifolds did you tap the Ampco oiler?

Thanks!

OK, I must have missed this one on my first search. But I found my answer to the "weld or braze on manifolds" question from Bub:

Pretty simple to make a dual carb kit for almost any application. I did it with a 40hp on a dune buggy I built a couple years back, it used two 28/30PICT carbs.
You need the lower (head) flange from the 40hp, cut maybe a couple inches above the flange, some appropriate pipe (sectioning the VW intake works fine) and two manifold to carb flanges. The good thing is the 40hp manifolds are cheap/free most of the time, so all you need is a welder, some beer and a free saturday afternoon.
You mock it up on your longblock, spot weld and finish the manifolds. In my case I heated the manifolds and slightly 'bent' one to get correct offset. I made linkage hidden on the front of the shroud using steel rod I bought at the hardware store and random dual carb linkage pieces. If you've seen many of the old kits you can easily picture how to make it, and it seriously works fine, many times better than the old stuff.
Vintage is always cooler, but even with a decent wallet they can be hard to find.

Sorry for the late reply! I just used an acetylene type welder. I worked perfectly!

DONG, how do you manage to reach the mixture and idle screws on the right carb? Aren't those partially blocked by the fan shroud, or do you have a special tool (i.e., right angle screwdriver) to reach them? Or is the manifold angled back slightly so that the carb is rearward of the fan shroud side?

Red painted engine case... sexy!

You mentioned the carbs are 30 PICTs, yet it looks like they have a manual choke? By comparison, US-spec 30 PICTs had electric chokes.

Good day.

I have a screw driver that really fts in between the fan shroud and the carb. Though it's a tight stop to adjust the mixture screw, but with bucket full of patience, it can be accomplished. As far as I can remember, those are Brosol Solex 30 PICT carbs that have manual choke. Though I will have it checked later.

When I bought my '65, the engine was with red color. Scraping the paint may leave permanent marks on the case that is why I left it as is. But, given the chance, I'd like it in magnesium color.


Thanks,

DongKG
