My thoughts for a Reverse Trike were Instantly a GL1500 6cyl.

For high torque.

I have two of them.

But NOW!!, the GL1200 with a single Carb conversion, with all that 6cyl. like torque, it will be more than capable to do the job,

And still make for a overall lighter trike, better yaw moment, since less weight, and that less weight in closer to the center spine of the bike.

I had a 2010 Spyder RT it was very top heavy, you sat too high in the air.

Some of the heavy upper steel frame was to high up in the air.

It was not torquey it was a Rev and go engine, better keep it boiling to make it run. Downshift a couple gears to find the powerband.

The spyder was designed by a bunch of laywers that were to affraid to be sued, I bet their prototype bike's were much better.

All Weight. Needs to be as low, and, as close, to center spine as absolutely possible, that includes the rider, for a ride to be exciting.

The E3AE-DA is an official Ford part number with the basic (denotes carb) missing, what is shown is the prefix and suffix.

The E3 of the prefix denotes it is from the model year 1983 and the exploded diagram does look like the Ford Escort model carb of that era with a 1.6 or 1.8 engine, I forget which.

The D32E-AA would be a 1973 model year and most likely a small carb of that size and era would have been on the imported Mercury Capri.


EDIT I wasn't sure about the second number it looks like that is the model number and not for a Ford number if they are both listed for the same carb it would be the manufacturer designation.

Whatever engine it had they were the doggiest thing on the road, right up there with the Chevy Chevette.

I made a correction about the D2 number, from reading here that looks like the manufactures number.

- - - Bill of material - - -

Note:

The Silicone Hose, i used, is actually Turbo Rated Hose,

It is Fuel proof, High Temp, High Pressure/Vacuum rated, and Stiff, yet semi Flexible It will NOT Collapse.

Only 20" of #1 is needed,

I think you can start by cutting 4ea., 5" long pieces for each Hose/tube, then cut them down from there.

To get the correct length of each hose, I fitted each hose on in the position first, then measured.

Then cut off a 1/4"length at a time and fitted then all back on.
Then measured again.

Repeat, Repeat, till you have the correct length.

All Hoses were the same length on mine.

Tip,
Last Hose leave it cut about a 1/4"-3/8" longer than the rest or you think it needs to be, this will be the hardest Hose/tube to put in.

Tip,
Put Vaseline on the 4ea O-ring's on the bottom of your OEM manifolds, that mount to the heads, to hold them to the Oem Manifolds, this will keep them from being damaged/pinched,

As you need to concentrate on other things, rather than fighting with o-rings

You will have 2 hose, across from the engine from each other, that will be easy, and line up with the manifold.

the Next one will need to be flexed a little more to get it into place,

Last hose is the most difficult, But not hard to do, to flex it into place, this is where 3 or 4 hands is helpful

The extra length will be a very good thing. you can cut it shorter, later, if needed.

I only used 20" of #1
I only used about 8" total of #3

1. approx 20"-24" inches Napa belts/hose Fleet flex Gold #630, this is 1-1/4" ID I used this for the intake runners, it has some flex but you still have to work it to make it fit. It is firm so i think it will not collapse. less than $40.00

2. 1.250 OD x 1.145 ID x .055 wall steel tube this is the clamp backer support, i cut 8 of these Approx. 3/4"- long (One of these goes into each end of the above 1-1/4" hose) I had to buy a 5 feet min. cost me $10.00
This is a Must as when you clamp this will keep the hose from collapsing and provide a strong clamping support.

3. Approx 8"-12" Napa Belts/Hose Fleet flex Gold #632 this is 1-1/2" ID, I used this for a seal over the VW Plenum and clamped over the 1-1/4 #630 hose. $20.00

4. 8ea #24 Clamps from Napa $.75-1.00 ea ?

NOTE: The amount of Fuel going through this is not very much and mixed with a lot of air,

If i were going to build a budget version of this, i would get all parts listed above in their correct sizes, But substitute #1 for 1-1/4"ID Radiator hose, as it is Coolant and Oil, resistant, I would think it will last a long time.

Hose Must Be smooth in the ID,
If you experience any hose collapse with the Radiator hose, a short piece of spring the same ID of the 1-1/4" hose, in the center of the ID, of that hose will fix it.

Or some left over Steel tube, That has been Totally deburred, & Lubed up with ATF automatic trans fluid, in ID of hose and od of steel tube, then slide it in to the center of length of hose.

The unsupported

Also substitute #3 for, 1-1/2"ID radiator Hose must Be smooth in the ID

A few pictures,

Pic#2 shows the Uni Link kit for the throttle cable hook up, it is very solid, and works very nice like OEM
Note: you may need a shorter throttle cable.

Pic#4
Notice the slight twist in the Carb & VW plenum, that is what you want, But check that you carb is centered over the centerline of the engine case halves.

Note:
Verify the location of your Carb.'s, Fuel Inlet I used a 90 degree brass fitting, and it's relation ship to the bikes frame, as you dont want any contact here.

I had about a 1/4" spacing

Last pic is a large fender washer to large to drop down into the carb and into the engine.
That washer is used for a Air filter top, to support under it, so when you tighten the top wing nut it wont crush/deform the air filter top by being able to over tighten it, now it has a stop.

Also Crank case breather shown in this picture as well, another Napa Item, this also Cannot Fall into the carb. as it is clamped from underneath and the crank case breather hose keeps it locked into place
