Building a big 4?  Cams and Carbs may be the way to go. These 40 IDF kits are what we recommend for most 1800 and even some 2.2 applications.  A great 1800 or 2056 rebuild with a great camshaft can be a whole lot of fun with these carburetors.  

***THIS IS IMPORTANT STUFF (hence the all-caps etc.)*** These are "Redline/Weber" carburetors made in Spain (not the cheesy knockoffs you'll find on eBay).  You'll be glad you spent the extra couple of bucks when it comes time to tune them in.  NO... WE ARE NOT TRYING TO SCAM YOU FOR EXTRA MONEY HERE.WE'RE TRYING TO SAVE YOU MONEY. THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE!!

Seriously, we tried to tune some knockoffs that a customer delivered for his brand new motor.  We couldn't even get past the air flow balancing let alone the mixture screws.  They were un-usable right out of the box. We spent 3-4 hours trying to tune them vs. 15 minutes.  I'll say it again; we're trying to save you money.

Kit includes:
• Weber Dual 40 IDF Carburetors
• Aluminum hex bar linkage with steel ball ends
• Offset aluminum intake manifolds
• Steel linkage mounts
• Coil relocation bracket
• Brass fuel tee
• Gauze air cleaner elements
• Air cleaner assemblies
• Complete gaskets and hardware package

Note: 40IDF carbs do not include velocity stacks. According to Weber and Redline 40mm is to small for velocity stacks to make a difference in performance.

Installation Note: Will fit Type 3 Fastback and Notchback with Type 1 (upright style) engine only. Will not fit Squarebacks or Type 3’s with pancake style engines. Will not fit Buses with Type 4 pancake style engines. See our K1347 kit for those motors.
