Intake manifold design
Hey to all, I have just finished rebuilding my weber DGAV 32/36 carb for conversion to single carb on my 1200. I found a few threads for jetting and have basically brought it back to the stock configuration, I am trying to design/ build an intake for it any idea's? I was going to use a porsche 914 plenum and runners but I couldn't find one. I am thinking about sheet metal and thin steel tubing, I can weld the whole thing together but If I use aluminum I would have to jig everything and have my neighbor tig it together. ANy recommendations, I will be heating the intake with coolant which brings me to another point, I can weld tubing to the plenum and runners to heat it but using aluminum will present another tig job for my neighbor and I don't think i have built up enough favors for that!!!! I figure I would use the same size tubing as the intake "elbow" from the original carb setup but I am not sure of that either. Any info on intake design for single/2 barrel carb setup would be great. Thanks
I may have stinky farts, but at least I can ride!
